In partnership with Gina Stuelke, owner of Kenton Brothers, we are proud to announce the launch of their new web site: www.kentonbrothers.com.
It is always interesting to compare pictures of what the previous site and new site look like:
We worked with Gina and her team at the Kenton Brothers office at 1718 Baltimore Avenue in downtown Kansas City. This is one of the things that differentiates Blue Gurus from other companies. We do the majority of our work at the client’s location. This creates a collaborative environment. We can try different things in real time and make significant progress in a shorter amount of time when compared to the old way of doing things with change orders via email or describing what to change over the phone.
We get to know, and work directly with the people that make up the company. It is important to know not only what the business does, but to know the people that do the work each and every day. We use this opportunity to train and educate them. When we complete a new web site, our clients know how to update the content on any of the pages of their site without having to pay consulting fees for adding a new event or news article. They also know how to use other tools that will make them more efficient in their daily jobs including keyboard shortcuts, using Outlook more efficiently, embedding Google Maps in their web site, performing image captures for use in their web site or presentations, storing files online with DropBox, uploading videos to YouTube and many other skills.
This web site is another example of WordPress and the power and flexibility that it provides. We were able to create the site, load the text and image content, try various settings including navigation and content areas and launch the site in less than 2 months. Achieving this with a web site created from scratch using a custom design, cascading style sheets and a web editor like Dreamweaver would have taken 4-6 months.
Thanks to Gina and her team at Kenton Brothers for working with Blue Gurus on their new web site and their social media presence!
