Great web design experience - Highly recommend!

Working with Jay on the big switch from Squarespace to Shopify has been wonderful. Jay took the initiative to get the job done ahead of schedule, re-building our content-heavy portfolio and large catalog of shop products in a way that preserved our brand identity and site experience. He was very communicative throughout the process and helped us navigate unforeseen setbacks with a sense of urgency and purpose. Although I don't know much about code, he was able to explain the site transfer process in basic terms and was very transparent about the scope of the project as a whole. Jay accommodated numerous requests for small changes and tweaks once our site was live and customers were able to give us feedback on the new experience. Overall, it's been immensely valuable to us to work with Jay and his team as he's responsible for putting our site on the path to new growth and opportunities that simply were not available with Squarespace. We are continuing to work with Jay as he adds more features to our site and optimizes our Facebook and Instagram shopping integrations. So very happy to have found LanternSol!

LanternSol has always been good to us. This latest project was for some ReCharge / Shopify integration work. Our guy Jay hops on tasks when needed and always has a solution. It's great to have a Shopify developer who knows how to get things done quickly and with a reasonable cost structure. Thanks, Jay!
Pros :
  • LanternSol consistently gets the job done regardless of what we ask them to do
  • Their communication is great. They ask good questions and are easy to work with.
Cons :
  • Sometimes projects take a bit more time than projected. They're good, but sometimes they get busy.

Custom code adjustment for product page

I craft custom wood jewelry that has an average turn around time of 6 weeks. The project was adding an option on the product page for the customer to request a quicker service for a small fee based on the dates the customer is requesting to have the order shipped by. I needed the time frame adjusted, which triggers the added fee.

Jamie Carney

It’s very rare to find someone who can do it all. Jaye has always risen to the challenge that I’ve write to him through my many requests for problem-solving, advertising, workarounds, and more. I could not be more impressed with the lightning fast turnaround time and ability to foresee the domino effect of
Pros :
  • Complete honesty and integrity. I never felt that they were not completely on level with me
  • 24 seven response times. Being able to reach someone night or day is priceless
  • A very fair price. I shopped around and feel his pricing was comparable but the talent far exceeded competition
Cons :
  • Nothing to say. Great overall experience from our end. Would hire again

LanternSol Executive Interview

Jay Neyer
Jay Neyer
CEO, LanternSol
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.
