In order to ensure a proper web presence for a local business, you need some basics to get on "The MAP" if you will. There are several optional items to enhance their business on a per need basis depending on how aggressive you want to be or have expansion in mind. This should be done systematically so you don't get overwhelmed with "too much biz."
I will explain in the order of importance and in Three(3) segments...A, B & C along with pricing information if you choose to do business with me ;-)
