The Village Websmith Web Design & Services for Skenfrith, , South Wales

Dedicated to small businesses.
At the Village Websmith, we only work with small businesses. It is far simpler and much more rewarding. It is far easier to get information about what is good about a business when you are talking to the person who IS the business. We are proud to have helped hundreds of small business people expose themselves more effectively on the Internet since 2003.

Giving word of mouth a helping hand.
As do many small businesses, most of our customers are certain that Word Of Mouth Marketing is the best way to get business. We strongly agree. After all, that is how we get most of our work. However, there is no harm in giving WOMM a helping hand. That is how we see the web presence here at the Village Websmith. It is an easy way for your customers to share your business with their friends and family.

Easy, easy, easy!
The hallmark of all our work is that the experience for visitors is easy. Your information is expertly presented not only in the form of words used and the images associated, but just as importantly, in the places where people look and where they expect to find the information. Nothing gets hidden in unnecessary, distracting animations and the pages follow a stable, comfortable structure, developed with just your site in mind. The most important part is that it is also extremely easy for visitors to respond to you via your chosen communication channel. You choose the option that suits best your availability to handle the enquiries.

Like Baby Bear's Porridge
How customers perceive your business is fundamental in how they respond to it. An impoartant part of our job is to make customers look just the right size for everyone. Small enough to be cherished by existing customers but substantial and professional enough to reassure potential new customers. This is a delicate balance that is only achieved through decades of experience in creating web presences promoting small businesses.

Getting found can also help
With unique functions to associate what you do, for whom and where, Webinthebox® from The Village Websmith helps even the smallest business find its way to the forefront of search engine results. Come and visit us, we will be happy to show some examples of how this works. You will also find that it is explained in plain language and not Jargonese.

Last but not least
The subject of money in many cases can present a surprise. You will find the surprise a pleasant one when presented with your Village Websmith invoice. Your site is built using Webinthebox®, our own content management system, developed since 2003. This makes creation and customisation of sites very quick. As time is money, this leads to small, manageable bills.

Welcome to Magnificent Monday - MOJO Day!

Monday is MOJO Day here. The day that we suggest ways to focus on what is truly great about your business and yourself, then make sure that everyone knows about it.

One of the earliest opportunities to tell potential customers about your MOJO is your business strapline or slogan. This is your chance in ten words or less to let the world know, not only what you do, but why you do it better than anyone else and why they should call you first.

I have been thinking about straplines since seeing one on an electronic advertising banner while watching the Autumn International series of rugby matches on television over the weekend. Despite belonging to a household name comapny, which obviously has immense amounts of money to throw at creating and displaying their information, one simple step had been missed. They had not applied the 'So What?' test.

The slogan in question simply read "Better than water". This scores highly in the brevity stakes, but says nothing to anyone who hasn't read their long-form advertising. It is precisely that group that should have been the target for this form of advertising.

Try it for yourself. The 'So What?' test is just to imagine yourself selling that product to someone else. You offer that statement as a justification to purchase and imagine them saying "So what?" in response. You explain the statement briefly and then compare your answer to the original statement. Which is better? It will always be your answer.

Now look at your own business strapline and carry out the same exercise. If tha answer is too long, reduce the wording but keep the meaning. Your strapline is a vital first taste of your business and should go everywhere people see your name, your website, letterhead, business cards, vehicle and office signage; everywhere.

Over the years, hundreds of Village Websmith customers have been helped to identify their MOJO, put it into a powerful message, then get it seen by potential new customers. Call us today on 0203 239 0350 or click in the header of any page to email us and get your MOJO working.
