What are the prices for your services?

Since the Dogs of Design Studios is a premier design studio that custom taylors each individual quote to the needs of the project, there isn't a set price for any list of services.  Within the company we have hourly rates that we use to estimate the total cost of the project based on the estimated completion time for the project and the associated hourly rate for the service. Prices at the Dogs of Design Studios are finalized upon signing of our standard contract.

How long does a design project usually take?

At the Studio we include our estimated turnaround times within the scope of the Quote to ensure full disclosure in each project. In order to give you a better idea of turnaround times however, below is a table complete with some of the standard projects that have little variability in their turnaround times from project to project.

How do you track progress within an SEO Campaign?

At the Dogs of Design Studios we normally use benchmarking services such as Google Analytics and communicate with the client about pertinent data such as the number of sales leads that the web generates per month.  We log this data and begin to track it over time. In the majority of our SEO campaigns we have seen significant results within a 6 month period.

The majority of our campaigns that major structural changes to the site (such as complete website copywriting) have resulted in significant increases in traffic and sales leads within a 3 month period.
