iFamilyKC advertisers are thrilled with the new features and benefits iFamilyKC provides as well as the experience Shawna brings to the new publication and web site. Here are just a few testimonials from our advertisers:
"The numbers speak for themselves. Shawna, especially, makes my job so stress-free. Above all else... I can trust her to handle my ad if I go out of town or cut it too close to the deadline because our business is busy reaping the benefits of using her print and online advertising! In this high-tech, electronic, Internet age, I am pleased to say that we generate CONSIDERABLE business through Shawna's efforts and will continue to do business with her for many years to come!"
Paula Thurman, Owner, Shear Madness Inc.
"Our company has been using many types of advertising over the past 29 years here in Kansas City. Shawna makes advertising easy with her follow up and attention to detail both to the actual ad and the networking available in the community."
Michele Orpin, Owner

"I have been advertising with Shawna for over 7 years. Response to my ads has increased each year and helped my business to grow due to Shawna's efforts. And I have had great service from her staff. They are quick to respond to my questions and wonderful to work with in getting my ads ready for print. I highly recommend Shawna for your advertising needs."
Licensed Kindermusik Educator and Piano Teacher
"I own a small, upstart portrait studio with an even smaller budget. Shawna's publication and web site, iFamilyKC, is the only advertising I will use. It is the best deal out there - bar none.The prices are so much better than anyone else in town........I love the choices in size and the fact that FULL color is no extra charge! I highly recommend iFamilyKC to anyone looking to advertise their new business or to expand on advertising they already have.
I am a mother of 3 young boys so I also see the publication and web site from a mom's point of view. It is an excellent (if not the best) resource for day cares, studios, classes in the arts, Boutiques, tons of fun activities for kids of all ages and SO MUCH more. I will tell any new parent or new family in town to check out iFamilyKC! It has all kinds of things to do and places to go that you may not have heard about anywhere else!"
