Oxford Michigan Mobile-first Website Design & Management
Hi there, my name is Jeff Mackey. When was the last time you looked at your website using a phone or tablet? If it didn’t load or look the way you expected, we should talk.
Your target audience is already mobile ready. Is your website mobile friendly?
Are you losing potential customers because they’re frustrated trying to find your operating hours or menu? Your website may look great when viewed on your laptop computer, but is it recognizable or usable when viewed on your phone?
Imagine this — Your customers are impressed by how great your website looks on their phone. Scrolling through sections and page navigation is intuitive. The information important to your intended audience is front and center, and easy to read.
Your website loads fast on any device, and doesn’t annoy your visitors with pop-ups or advertising banners that take up space. Features and forms on your website are accessible for everyone, and don’t force users to use a specific browser.
Renaissance Media is a publishing house located in Southfield, Michigan. It's two main offerings, The Jewish News and Neighborhood Seen, required updated and new websites respectively to increase readership and engagement.
SIX15 refined the design of The Jewish News to make the website mobile-friendly. This made the site easier to view by it's target market, which research indicated was viewing the site more from phones and tablets. This resulted in an increase of 85% in website visitor sessions compared to the same period before the redesign was launched.
Renaissance Media has no time to manage website content or maintain the environment powering these websites. SIX15 has assumed the role of handling all website hosting activities, monitoring and securing the websites from malicious attacks, and updating content. They receive a report each month of website activity and tasks performed. This gives them peace of mind in that their online presence is handled.

Three jobs from the web site this week!!! It’s working!! If you are looking for a web site designer, you could go anywhere. But, I recommend Jeff for more than the design. I appreciate his communication and follow-up skills, and his ability to patiently train me to update and change my own site. Overall, this was a great experience!”

“Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He seamlessly created a fully functional and professional website while being responsive, straightforward, and organized. I would recommend him to anyone.”
Brief Case Study: Halo Group Website Rescue
A client SIX15 had worked with several years ago got back in touch with a desperate need to enhance their website with a look and feel that matched their new branding efforts. One important aspect of this new design was that it had to be mobile friendly. I implemented a mobile-first WordPress theme, enhanced it with needed custom theme functionality to handle their specific needs, and launched the new site within two months.
Understanding your website problems and potential solutions starts with a free 30 minute consultation
I look forward to learning about your website. Besides just understanding what you’re technically looking for, I want to learn more about why you want to move forward with this effort. The more I know about your business, the problems you face, and the “tomorrow” you’re looking to arrive at, the better equipped I’ll be to prescribe the best path to get there.
Our initial meeting will take about 30 minutes, and here’s what we’ll discuss:
I want to understand the project you’re bringing SIX15. How should it function? What will be some of the core workflows and use cases for it? What does it look like?
Below each project is an underlying business problem that necessitated the project. I understand that you aren't just looking for “a website”. Instead, there’s a root cause that is affecting the business.
I understand that you want more than just the project built for you — you want the problems you’re facing to be eradicated. This is the solution; it’s the absence of the problem you’re currently experiencing. By understanding the solution and relating it to the problem behind your project, I’ll be better able to design and create the “bridge” that links the two together.
I only want to take on projects where SIX15 is an investment, and what I produce yields a return-on-investment for SIX15 clients. I’ll briefly overview the monetary goals you have with this project so that I can determine whether the payoff will ultimately outweigh your costs.

What happens next?
Upon initial contact, you will receive an email from me with a few qualifying questions. Nothing major, just getting some specifics before we take the time to chat. Once I hear back from you, I will contact you to discuss your requirements.
A few things you should know first:
- I bill based on the value of services delivered to you. If we end up being a good fit to work together, I require a 50% deposit to secure a spot on my schedule.
- I typically start website development projects on Mondays once the deposit is received, and projects are currently scheduled two weeks out.
- I have a policy of not signing Non-Disclosure Agreements. Nor will I do any speculative work. It’s simply bad business.
- SIX15 has a standard project process, but it’s not written in stone. Each engagement is unique, and I figure out the most valuable thing I can deliver to you first, and once that’s done we’ll take the next step.
- You’ll be talking directly to me. No middle-men, and no off-shore design team. That said, you’ll hear from me often, because a 30-minute meeting is cheaper than 20 hours of work wasted because there was a misunderstanding.
- I’ll work hard, but rest just as hard. Weekends and evenings give everyone time to think, rest, and recharge, which means a higher quality solution to your project.
- I have fun. I think you will too.
Still have Questions? No problem! Email me any time. If after talking about your requirements I cannot help you, I will do my best to refer you to those that can. It’s all about good karma.
Are We a Good Fit?
Just as you should be discerning when choosing whom to work with on your next website project, I am selective in who would be a good fit as a SIX15 client.
