Our story

On December 17th, 2007, Michael Endres received his "Doing Business As" license for blueVortex.net and a company was born. But, the story begins long before that day...

In 2001, Michael worked on his first ever Website. It was for the Grand Rapids Paranormal Alliance (a group of ghost hunters from West Michigan). The Website went through several designs over the course of 5 years. The Home Page was even featured on the front cover of the Your Life section of the Grand Rapids Press on October 31st, 2005 - in full color. Michael was hooked.

One day, Michael noticed an ad for a Web Designer position at WKTV studios where he had interned in high school. Not expecting to get the position, he went in for an interview. It was at this interview Michael met webmaster Rob Worth. Michael got the job and Rob Worth became his mentor. Michael's earliest clients (from before blueVortex.net was founded) include WKTV, Kent County Black Elected Officials, DMarshco, and the Catholic Forum.

Michael worked part time at Studio 28 while managing a few Websites on the side. He was also earning a communications degree from Grand Valley State University and gratuated from GVSU in 2004. After officially starting blueVortex.net in 2007, he watched his client base grow and grow until working at the movie theatre became too much. In 2012, after 13 years with Loeks Theatres, Michael resigned and began working full time designing and maintaining Websites.

The Steps

Meet and Look at Needs

First, we will set-up a meeting to discuss your needs. After the meeting, blueVortex.net will make a bid for the site based on the expected work load. Once a flat rate is agreed upon, that is all you pay each month, no matter how many updates are needed. No need to worry about how any little request will affect your budget.

Your World Online

We build your Website. This process may take up to 2 months. We will also sign a contract for one year at a time. If at the end of the year you decide not to go with blueVortex.net, the domain will be turned over to a host of your choosing, all graphics and work included. Otherwise, the contract automatically renews each year.

Teamwork

After building your Website, blueVortex.net does not dissapear. We are there for you to keep your content updated.

Testimonials

Tommy Brann

Mike is a go to person. I can call him anytime about an item on my list and he gets it done. If I leave him a message he follows through for me. Our relationship has helped my business and also personally - I have made new friends with social media and he gets my opinions out there. I believe in Mike so much that I bought him and his girlfriend dinner a couple of weeks ago for all the extra things that he does for my social media. I endorse Mike and his business 100 percent."

Rob Worth

Mike took a concept which I designed, ran with it, and improved it to the point where he has been very successful with the business of serving businesses. If you are considering someone to help you with your business, Mike is the perfect choice.

My confidence in Mike is as strong as family. Which, by the way, is exactly what happened when I asked him to take over my sister's portfolio a few years back. Not only is my sister extremely happy with the results, she's been a great client for Mike as well.

When I decided to retire, I asked Mike to take over each client one at a time. He's done well with all of them. In the coming years, as I eventually will wind down my web design business, I know who to call. Thus, paraphrasing a line from the "Ghost Buster's" movie - Who are you going to call when you want to expand your brand? I know who I'm calling and I highly recommend you call Mike as well. I give him a rating of 5 [out of 5 on Facebook] because of who he is, what he knows, and the perfection he strives for when servicing clients."
