Noob IT seek help with office backup strategy

Specs: Windows 7
I am a small business owner of a computer repair company. I have been wanting to get into the world of real IT work for other small businesses as a way to expand. Recently, someone gave me the opportunity to come up with a backup solution for an office of about 50 computers, and I need help with where to start! I know various ways to back up people's home computers but this is way different. #1: Could someone tell me what a tried-and-true, low-hassle, simple-yet-effective way of backing up 50 or so office computers data? We're looking at about 300GB of data total so far. #2: What's a solid resource for beginner IT-wannabes that want to learn about different backup strategies? Thanks everyone for your help!

Usually, it's the domain server(s) that are being backed up, not each PC. Drive images can be taken of the workstations but that's just for re-installation, not for backup.

web search backup stratagies would be a good start.

Does this business have a server?
Do they store data on the pcs?
How important is their data?
Are they interested in a disaster recovery plan of which back up is a part?
What would be their projected budget for the project?

As you can see there are a number of questions to be answered before a direction can be chosen.
