LanternSol Executive Interview

Jay Neyer
Jay Neyer
CEO
Visit Profile
Please introduce your company and give a brief about your role within the organization.
We design, build and optimize eCommerce stores. With over a decade of experience, LanternSol has proudly helped companies do over $100,000,000 in sales with their online businesses. I founded the company in 2015.
What is the story behind starting this company?
It happened very organically!  I started off building websites and eCommerce funnels for myself based on my wants and needs.  This involved a lot of trial and error, and basically picking up every self-starter mistake you can learn along the way.  Over the course of doing this, more and more people and companies started becoming aware of my work— which led to a more continuous pipeline of contacts reaching out who also needed help with their digital marketing presence.
What are your company’s business model–in-house team or third party vendors/ outsourcing?
We do as much as we can in-house and then have some reliable partners we lean on for more complex projects, such as with video animation.  The team has slowly grown to include 6 full-time members.
How does your company differentiate itself from the competition?
By caring more about the customer's needs!  As simple and trite as it may sound, we plain flat just work our butt off for our clients.  We look to first really hone in and understand the unique positioning and stories that surround our favorite brands and partners, and then we utilize that to capture a compelling selling point both on their website and advertising campaigns.
What industries do you generally cater to? Are your customers repetitive? If yes, what ratio of clients has been repetitive to you?
Generally D2C, but not exclusively.  In total, we’ve built 500+ custom sites across a variety of domains: New York real estate, fitness products, food delivery, coffee, chocolate, pet toothpaste & treats, cleaning supplies, custom inflatable obstacle courses and blow up mascots, b2b packaging materials— you name it!
Please share some of the services that you offer for which clients approach you the most for?
About 50% of our work is app and web development, then the other 50% is split between SEO and PPC (Google, Facebook, & Amazon ads).
What is your customer satisfaction rate according to you? What steps do you take to cater to your customer’s needs and requirements?
Our reviews and comments from our customers speak for themselves! We’ve helped companies do over $100,000,000 in online sales and are proud to boast a 98% 5 star and approval rating.
What kind of support system do you offer to your clients for catering to their queries and issues?
It comes down to just being really personable.  “Support system” seems to imply software, but really I find answering and catering to client queries just comes down to being really personable, accessible via phone calls and text/email, etc.
What kind of payment structure do you follow to bill your clients? Is it Pay per Feature, Fixed Cost, Pay per Milestone (could be in phases, months, versions etc.)
It depends on the project scope, but typically we do project-based pricing.  Web development is generally fixed project costs, while SEO/PPC has ongoing mgmt fees associated.
Do you take in projects which meet your basic budget requirement? If yes, what is the minimum requirement? If no, on what minimum budget you have worked for?
For designing and developing a website, these days we generally don't take on projects less than $5k.  Our SEO packages start at $2k/month and increase up to $5k depending on the level of aggression.  Our PPC is based on overall ad spending.
What is the price range (min and max) of the projects that you catered to in 2020?
$500 - $35,000.
Where do you see your company in the next 10 years?
I can say assuredly we’ll be working on the next web3.0 platforms that are in their nascent stages.  Whatever we do (life can be unpredictable!), we’ll bring our full passion, attention, and energy into ensuring to continually assist clients in reaching their goals.

Profitably acquiring new customers at scale with average ROAs of 4-6x +33% increase in conversion volume -17% decrease in cost per purchase (CPA) Implementing rapid creative testing to find what angles/messaging and creative formats work in order to scale our ad spend profitably Launching new a/b tests that alone have generated 6 figures in profitable revenue from FB/IG ads.

With a combined approach to tackle on-page technical SEO to improve the way the website “talks” with Google and search engines, as well as shaping content creation, and getting backlinks for wider exposure.

Review Summary

My company wanted to automatically add a portion of our Shopify orders' notes to a standard invoice email template, but didn't have anyone internal who knew how to make this code modification. We reached out to about 6 companies from Shopify's partner directory, including LanternSol. LanternSol was the only company to ask for further details about the work we requested before providing a quote. Their quote was the lowest price of all the companies we contacted. After my company gave them the needed access to do the work we requested, LanternSol completed the job in 1 business day, to our exact specifications. We are very satisfied with their work!

We wanted to have a specific portion of Shopify orders' notes automatically added to a standard invoice email, but didn't have anyone at the company who knew how to write the necessary code for this. After asking for further details about our company's request, LanternSol quickly provided a reasonable quote for the work. They completed the work in 1 business day, exactly as we requested. They were great to work with!

I appreciated that LanternSol asked for more project details BEFORE providing a quote for the work.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I cannot recommend Lanternsol highly enough! They did an exceptional job designing and developing my new pickleball shop, Get2Eleven.com. The team, including Jay, Erin, Jose, and everyone else involved, demonstrated unmatched professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail throughout the entire process. Not only did they deliver top-notch work, but they also provided great value for the quality of service received.

What truly sets Lanternsol apart is their ongoing support and assistance even after the launch. They are always ready to lend a helping hand, whether it's addressing post-launch queries or assisting with SEO and marketing efforts. Their dedication to client satisfaction is commendable, and I am thrilled to continue working with them to elevate my online presence.

Thank you, Lanternsol, for your outstanding work and unwavering commitment to excellence!

Review Summary

Jay was incredibly valuable to my business as we added a subscription offer. Even more so than doing the work, he was an advisor in selecting the right solution and in weighing the tradeoffs between off the shelf options and custom development, in order to land on a solution that best fit my needs and budget.

Throughout it all, Jay was incredibly patient with me (as a small business owner this was always important to me but never urgent and I never felt rushed in figuring out the right next steps and Jay gave me the confidence to make good decisions).

I would absolutely recommend working with Jay and hope to do so again in the future!
THANK YOU!!

Jay is an amazing freelancer to work with! He's straightforward and has no problem communicating online. Although we asked for a simple project, he was able to finish the project within a reasonable time and completely exceeded my expectations with his vast knowledge of website development. He saved me and the other employees time and effort trying to simply add a search bar on our pipeline themed website, however Jay was able to completely finish the project within reason and no issues when it came to meeting discussing other devices.

Review Summary

Jay provided exactly what I was looking for! As a small business, I was interested in website features that I’ve seen used by large corporations - and Jay was able to do just that. He was patient through my requests (and my confusion!) and I’m very pleased with the results and functionality. He was very communicative, and kept me updated with his progress. He went above and beyond to ensure I was pleased with the end result. I am very particular when it comes to my website, and he also made any small changes to meet my preferences with no hesitation. I am so excited to have these new features, as I am certain they will not only increase my conversion rate - but increase my average order value as well. I’ll be referring him to any and all of my friends with businesses online.

I often have different color variations of the same
