Not that you can't still offer client services, but having local leverage would be super beneficial.
I was wondering if anyone knew of any good scripts or CMS's to deploy those types of sites easily? I found a clean and simple example here Video Something - Video Business Directory, Austin, Texas, restaurants, small businesses, local businesses, keep austin weird, but their SEO sucks.
Anyone have any recommendations for scripts or cms to deploy a few of these style of sites? Or example sites of something you have seen and liked?
I was thinking wordpress would be great, but that wouldn't be any ordinary theme I'm guessing.
