FAQ

How do I work with the guys at Lampdogs?

It’s pretty straightforward – you choose a theme, you pay us, we customize the theme to your liking, you get a gorgeously designed site on the world’s best content management system: WordPress. Swing over to How it Works for details.

Check out our What’s Included page to see all the goodies we include.

How much do you charge for a web site?

We charge $500 flat.

What is the standard turn-around on a web site?

We base turn-around on when we start development. So, once you have delivered all of the materials needed (see below), we can typically develop a site for your review in 1-3 days depending on the complexity and completeness of the planning materials.

What do I need to provide?

Once you’ve chosen a theme, you provide all content – words, images, text. This includes:

  • A short creative brief outlining exactly what the site is for
  • All site content including logo, taglines, words and imagery
  • All server and domain information if you have it

If you’ve found the right theme, and know exactly what you want, it’s easy!

What if I want to use my own theme, rather than one featured on your site?

No problem – we can work with your theme. Keep in mind that it’s hard for us to support non-featured themes. We custom pick the themes on our site because they’ve been vetted for quality. There are lots of bad themes out there, and we only work with the world-class ones.

Why are you so cheap? What’s the catch?

There’s no catch – we keep our prices low by tapping into the huge and talented WordPress professional themes market. There are hundreds of extremely talented developers out there, and we partner with them to provide you with the best of the best.

We also like sticking it to the man – our business is disruptive to the big digital agencies, who do the exact same thing we do, except they mark up their services at least 1000%.

Wait aren’t you just a fancy offshore labour pool?

If by offshore you mean Canada, and labour pool you mean experienced design and development professionals, then YES!

Are you going to show examples of my projects to other people?

NO WAY! – as part of our Master Development Agreement, we maintain strict confidentiality about your projects. We like to think of ourselves as your secret weapon. Nobody needs to know…

Do you work with large companies?

We certainly do – marketing managers who need a quick mico-site up, or a private social network like this one for internal projects find our services helpful and speedy (and much less costly than a typical agency.)

Do you warranty your work?

By all means. We provide a 30 day conditional warranty from the date we deliver the final product. It includes:

  • Omission of originally contracted requirements as stated here.
  • Defects in workmanship (functional errors, layout/spacing issues, etc.)
  • Server issues (if hosting with us)

How does your hosting work?

If you don’t have hosting or a domain name, or don’t even know what that means, don’t worry because one year of basic hosting and domain registration is included in the $500 price through our affiliation with Hostgator.  (Note: after 1 year is up, we charge $100/year for hosting, which is pretty competitive.)

If you already have hosting and a domain purchased, we can work in your environment no problem!
