The Village Websmith - Web Design & Services in & around Stirling

Small business web design. The Village Websmith operates through franchisees chosen for their marketing and sales ability rather than technical know how. This is the difference and the way that your message can get across to the huge market that uses the internet to find local services in the Stirling area.

The fully managed website option is great for small businesses who don't have the time or personnel to maintain and manage their own website. With a set up fee that can be as low as £240, then maintenance charges starting from £30 per month, you get regular updates and performance reviews as well as marketing advice and a complete facelift for your site every two years.

By being a small, local business rather than a national concern, the franchisees are able to help you focus and target customers for what you do in in Stirling , where local knowledge and the power of Webinthebox® can help you accurately target your approach to make sure that you don't have to waste your precious time chasing up enquiries from customers too far away to serve profitably.

Welcome to Thrilling Thursday

Thursday draws its name from the old English for thunder, a translation of a Latin name for Jupiter's Day. Few things make impact on people like thunder. Impact is vital to make sales. Today let's look at a face to face sales technique that I have introduced to many of the sales people I have worked with over the years.

I named this 'Future Success History' when working for Olympus as every aspect of sales training in the corporate world is incomplete without a catchy name and a decent three letter acronym. More seriously though, this is a way of making the sales process work in your favour by 'remembering' that the meeting has already happened with a favourable outcome. Once something has happened it can't un-happen.

It works like this. Before every meeting, spend time envisioning the person you are going to talk to. Imagine every statement, every question and every gesture. See yourself presenting the aspects of your business that the customer concerned relates positively to. See yourself presenting the proposal and the customer being delighted to sign the order, write a deposit cheque or take whatever step you use in your business to oonfirn the go-ahead. Do this over and over again until it becomes a memory.

Run through the memory again on the way to the meeting and take a few minutes outisde to go over it again before entering the building. This order has been placed as far as you are concerned, and there can be only one outcome; a positive result for your business.

It is as simple as that.

Don't just take my word for it though. Muhammad Ali, arguably the world's greatest heavyweight boxer used exactly this technique before every fight (Ali called it 'Future History').

Where does your website come in? With skillfully written content, you can pre-inform potential customers and shape the questions that will be asked when you meet them face to face. Presenting the different facets of your business MOJO in an easy to navigate way allows people to find the relevant information and start to form a positive opinion, which you merely have to reinforce when in front of them.

With the Village Websmith's managed content services it is easy. Sinde 1976, we have been delivering sales messages for all kinds of businesses; face to face, in print, through advertising and for the last ten years over the Internet.
