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.

Things You Might Want to Know
In-House Team. Beam Local has been around since 2008 and its 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 its 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, Beam Local will send a brief to its 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, your site is designed, 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.
