Types of Contractors We Can Help

“With a NY marketing/PR agency in my own background, I am picky! But in all ways Sixth City either meets or exceeds my expectations. I am most impressed by (though I can’t stand the jargon!) the “team” assembled for our project and how they relate to each other and the client, AND by their ultra-preparedness for every meeting. They are a pleasure to work with, they never say no, their quality is top-notch, and if that weren’t enough, they are fun!” – Bill Rudman, Founder and Artistic Director, The Musical Theater Project

Learn the Steps in Our Contractor Website Design Process

If you have never been through a website design and development process, you likely do not know the various phases that it incorporates. Here is a brief overview of some stages you can expect while we design and build your site:

  1. First preliminary discussion to talk about goals, hardships, etc.
  2. Asking you to send over some sites you like for inspiration
  3. Planning your main navigation and overall site structure
  4. Creating wire frame mockups to discuss layout options
  5. Once layout is finalized, producing realistic Photoshop mockups
  6. Moving the design into WordPress on our development server to begin building out the site
  7. Finalizing details on the dev site before launch
  8. Taking the site live by moving the site from our dev server to your hosting company of choice
  9. Conducting a review of the live site to ensure stability and functionality
  10. Passing the site off to you with credentials so you can use your new site

General Questions We Receive

Q: Will we be able to update the site after you finish it?
A: Yes! And we can also provide some training videos that will help you get aquatinted with the new interface of your website. You will be able to update page copy, the navigation, photos, and more.

Q: How long do web projects take?
This will always depend on how large your current site is, whether or not you are starting from scratch, and if we will need to write content as well, but we also factor in your ideal timeline. All of these aspects will be a point of discussion when we talk with you about working together. 

Q: Do you work with web design clients after their project is complete?
Yes, often! If you are interested in our other services after we complete your new website, we would be happy to discuss your options and budget when it comes to digital marketing.

Q: How are your other services different from web design?
A: Our other offerings are quite different from website redesigns for a variety of reasons. For example, search engine optimization includes both on- and off-site strategies to help search engines rank your website higher. And then for pay-per-click marketing, we would be writing ads that can be run on various networks through unique targeting efforts. You can learn more about everything we offer on our services page.

“We called on Sixth City as well as a number of other companies to make a proposal for a new look, and a better-run WordPress website for the Lake County Health District. They were low pressure, more problem solving, and would step up where we needed, but also let us do things that we needed. In the end, our new look is a very functional well-branded site, and they were professional, knowledgeable, and precise with their help in our website build. We went through all of our own content, and upped our game as well. So we are pretty pleased with the result.” – Lake County Health District
