"We love working with iFamilyKC! They help us out a great deal, being a small family owned business, we aren't really knowledgeable when it comes to advertising and iFamilyKC makes the process so smooth and easy! They even have a designer on hand to come up with a spread that always looks fantastic! They advertise for us in their monthly magazine as well as on social media and the response we get is amazing! We don't know where we would be without them!"

I run in the regular monthly magazine and in the annual field trip guide and we have new customers use the coupons from the ads. Sunset Trails Stables has also hosted a few iFamilyKC Kids Club events, they fill up so quickly and really work to generate new customers. Shawna and her team are so awesome to work with! I always feel like my business is important to iFamilyKC. They constantly reach out to me with extra advertising opportunities. I love that they will add my promotional materials to their give away bags, and even share interesting things I posted on my business social media pages. iFamilyKC is a great company to work with and I would recommend it to any business trying to reach out to Kansas City families and children!"

Maggie Everson, Owner, Sunset Trails Stables

"iFamilyKC stands behind it's name. I have never been treated as a paying customer nor have I been treated as a client. Instead, I have been treated as family. I appreciate the time, dedication and commitment displayed by the owners, founders, and marketing consultants. As a small business owner, I am very selective about what company I choose to partner with for advertising purposes. I must say one can never go wrong with iFamilyKC!!! Thanks for all you do!"
