Saturday, September 28 was the first casting call in Reno, Nevada for the participants that will compete for bragging rights and a combination of cash and prizes worth 25K.

Years ago not everyone wanted or felt they needed a website, but now if your company does not have some kind of web presence, your company may be passed by due to the simple fact that today’s shoppers search for what they want online. Even if that’s just them using a mobile map service to find your company’s location and if you are off the grid, then you may not be selected.
