It's 2011. For less than thousand dollars any company can have an 
updated looking website - mostly based on wordpress.

The website is your door to commerce.  "Company websites, not social 
media, top source of new leads."


I'm not saying you need bells and whistles, but it does need to be 
clean, neat and relevant.

Would you shop in a run down, dirty store?
