Client Testimonials

“The website alone has helped sell millions of dollars worth of jobs for us…

I thought I knew what I wanted… then I realized they are the creative minds, they know exactly what I’m trying to portray. They knew what I wanted better than I knew what I wanted. They brought that hometown approach, you can do business on a handshake. They will do what they say they will do.”

Jason Erickson
Dynamic Structural Steel

“If you are looking for a marketing partner that is going to provide you with excellent, excellent products, then Blue Yonder is your company.”

Jenny Johnson
Marketing Communications Coordinator
UNC REX Healthcare

“Blue Yonder is different from other production companies because they make things so easy for me. You can check out their work and you know that the videos they produce are phenomenal. What you don’t see is all of the behind the scenes work they do to plan, to come prepared, the research that goes into it… I tell Blue Yonder what I need and I sit back and they do all the work.”

Alison Brown
Physician Practice Marketing Manager
UNC REX Healthcare

“I developed a very high level of trust in their ability to deliver the messages and to help develop the strategies that would get us where we wanted to go.”

Eric Schlacks
Gas-Energy Coordinator
City of Duluth

“I’m exposed to a lot of different advertising/marketing companies nationally. But there is a big gap. There is no personal touch with some of the bigger companies. That is why I really enjoy working with John and Sandy. That doesn’t happen. They sit down with me, they produce the work. They don’t hand me off.”

Bonnie Kupczynski
Duluth Business University

“The best thing I can say is if you want a total experience that takes your business’s needs into consideration, your business’s goals into consideration, your people into consideration – ties it all together in a coherent strategy – then you need to talk to John and Sandy. You need to make that happen.”

Jeff Papas
Marketing Director
Northern Communities Credit Union

“Blue Yonder really can do so many different kinds of projects. One thing I love so much about Blue Yonder is the ability to expand your thoughts. Whenever I come up with an idea whether it is documentaries, commercials, industrials – it doesn’t make any difference. They can always make my idea or a client’s idea even better.”
