Beam Local is a Toronto-based web services company specializing in web design and development, localized online marketing, and conversion optimization. They have attorney clients in the United States and Canada and have designed and developed modern, clean, and refined websites for solo practitioners and small law firms.

Beam Local Highlights

Clean and Refined Layout. Beam Local approaches website design with a focus on distinct, clean, and refined methods and style. Content is not included at the expense of clutter, and the pages they’ve designed help potential clients find exactly the information they’re looking for on your site.

Web Design, Development, and SEO. Beam Local specializes in web design and localized bespoke SEO services. If you’re looking for a sleek web presence that focuses your location and practice, this may be a great option. If you’re looking for more robust SEO services, Beam Local may not be for you.

Free Updates for Life. Signing up for their services comes with a simple promise: “Free Support. For Life.” They claim to help update, troubleshoot, and change your website for free, for life.

Beam Local Pricing

Prices start at $38/mo with a one-time setup fee of $995. This gets you a responsive website design from a template with your own domain name, five pages, secure hosting, Google Analytics, contact forms, click to call, professional copywriting, stock photography, unlimited updates, and free support for life. The next tier adds premium stock photography, a full-featured blog, and a customer review engine for $48/mo and a one-time setup fee of $1,995.

Things You Might Want to Know

In-House Team. Beam Local has been around since 2008 and their in-house team of strategists, designers, developers, and supporters know what questions to ask and provide all the services you need to create a website, to optimize your website, and provide ROI reporting with free updates and support that promises a resolution time of fewer than 12 hours.

Fees for Moving Your Site. Beam Local designs and hosts your website through Media Temple. If you prefer to host your site elsewhere, you have the option to migrate your website to a different host, but there is a fee for that.

Personalized Designs. To make sure that their design is right for you, you are involved from the very beginning, starting with a 20-minute set-up call to get a broad overview of your practice. Next, they’ll send a brief to their designers to come up with a draft of your new site for you. You review the draft and revise it until you’re happy. Once you’re happy, they design your site and you’ll be on your way to a modern web presence.

Who Beam Local is For

If you’re looking to have a simple web presence and localized SEO with affordable pricing, this is a great option (particularly with the exchange rate in Canada). If you’re looking for more robust SEO and marketing services, Beam Local may not be a good fit for you.
