The Village Websmith Web Design & Services for Llandough, , 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.

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.
On this day in 1984, Band Aid recorded "Do They Know it's Christmas" and released it just four days later. For 12 years it held the record as the biggest selling record in British chart history. The band's MOJO was that they cared very strongly about a crisis in Ethiopia, where the famine was killing people at an nprecedented rate.
The band comprised 36 musicians from widely varying backgrounds and musical styles, drawn together by a desire to help and the charismatic appeal of Bob Geldof and Midge Ure. A truly amazing achievement.
I'm not suggesting that anyone should go out and record a single, merely using this as an example of getting people to recognise your MOJO and become enthused.
In a smaller scale, enthusiasm for your business is infectious, so today, have a think about how you present what you do. The language that you use when talking about business, is it easily accessible for those not necessarily in the know? Does it convey the joy that what you do can bring to customers? Does it touch their 'Hot Button'?
So many websites have content that is a series of statements that don't add up to a differentiator. What can people get from you that they can't get elsewhere? Why should they pick up the phone and call you first? Take a good look and put yourself in their shoes then make a positive change to your message. Make your MOJO shine through, not only on your website, but in every piece of paperwork, signage and every conversation. Enthuse yourself first and others will follow.
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.
Llandough is also close to our headquarters in Shirenewton, Monmouthshire, which helps us to maintain our policy of only working face to face with customers to make sure they get the best results quickly when writing the content for their web sites. This is a much quicker method of establishing what aspects of a business are the most promotable and getting the order of things. So, if you have a small business in Llandough, just get in touch with the Village Websmith and experience the difference of truly personal web design for yourself.
