@1st Site for Security Door & Shutter Manufacturer
Bison Roller Doors
I bumped into Mark on the industrial estate where he works and I have a storage unit. It was a nice sunny day so we sat in the sun chatting about this and that. Naturally, business cards changed hands and a week or so later, I had a call from Mark asking me to visit and talk over the creation of a web site for his business.

That was in 2017 and ever since I have been doing all the content management, regular updates and some site photography for Bison.

@1st Site for Car Maintenance & Cleaning
Mark's Car Valeting
Since 2015, I have been hosting and maintaining a site for the Guest House in Symonds Yat that is the business of Mark's family.

Since Covid-19 has caused a disastrous drop in that business, Mark has had to go back to what he used to do full time, and has always kept on in the background, valeting vehicles.

@1st Site for Plant Sales
IKBR
Brian's business is in refurbishing and renting/re-selling powered access plant. We met when he accosted me in the roadway of the estate that he works on. I had just left the unit of another client there. "Are you the bloke that does web sites?" he asked. We went on from there.

Brian now happily manages his own stock levels and site content for himself, finding it easy and quick to keep on top of his site as well as his business.

@1st Site for Window Cleaners
Envirotec Solutions
Envirotec cleaned the windows at the pub next door to our office. One day, I mentioned to the guy cleaning the windows that there was something missing off his van. He asked me what and I told him it was the address of his web site.

We had a chuckle and he came into the office for a chat, following which he engaged us to create his web site and we engaged him to clean the office windows. It's nice when things work out like that.

@1st Site for Mobile Hairdressers
LA Creative Hair
Louise Armstrong is a highly experienced, creative mobile hairdresser in and around Chepstow. When Covid 19 had a dramatic effect on her business, Louise took on some domestic cleaning jobs to make ends meet.

Luckily, one of the jobs she took on was my office, so I was able to explain the benefits of promotion via the web in order to be in pole position for work when travel and contact restrictions were lifted. Louise liked the idea and this site went live in 2020.

With the Village Websmith's @1st Site you get a professionally designed, unique site, targeted at your chosen locality and market with proefessionally written content.

What it costs

That is very simple:

  • Day One - £120 to cover hosting, domain and email boxes
  • Publication Day - When you are happy with your web site and it goes live, £360
That's it.

As with all Webinthebox® sites, your @1st Site will enjoy super secure, low density hosting with ssl (https) connection included in the price, as well as up to five mailboxes, unlimited bandwidth, hosting space and pages. You get full control with the content management system and help is available at various levels covering topics like web copy writing, search engine performance and the management of images for the web.
