“We could not recommend the Blue Gurus more highly than we already do. They were a pure joy to work with: professional, helpful, personal and true masters at their craft. Right from the very beginning, the Gurus helped us process the social-media and web needs of our specific organization and wanted to find the best solutions that were also easy and accessible for ‘non-web-savvy people’ to maintain. You don’t have to be a web-master to understand what they are talking about; they were honest throughout the process and always available to answer questions or troubleshoot at the drop of a hat; they were conscientious of our budget restrictions and even came in under budget. On top of all of that, they were so much fun to work with. We laughed a lot and formed a true friendship that will last for many years. If you are looking for some website or social media help, you would be doing yourself a disservice to not give the Blue Gurus a call.”

The Christ Church Anglican project is another example of how taking good care of your customers turns into word of mouth referrals. We were referred to Donna Rimbo at Christ Church Anglican by our good friend and client, Tommy Wilson, urban planner for the Downtown Council of Kansas City.
Jason talked with Donna about how we do our work on site and how quickly things get done. Donna was also interested in being collaborative on their new website because they had graphics design capabilities on staff as well as a weekly podcast of the church messages.
As with many not-for-profits, the church advisory board met to discuss doing the web project with Blue Gurus. Kristin Tyson of Bank of Kansas City is on the Board, and is another friend and client of Blue Gurus. We were fortunate to have her vote of confidence as well. Based on all of the trusted relationships combined with solid delivery in the past, we won the project!
Working with Donna Rimbo and Seth Carnell was awesome. They always had their homework done prior to each meeting. They have good technical skills and were able to jump right in to editing content with WordPress.
One of the requirements for the project was sign-up forms and Donna did a little research and found JotForms.com. You may have seen a previous blog post about JotForms… Yep, we got the idea from Donna! This is a perfect example of the collaborative nature of our projects.
We heavily customized the theme that Donna chose for their site. You can see the final result below and visit their website as well to see how it all turned out!
