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 The Scottish Borders 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 The Scottish Borders , 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 Terrific Tuesday
Named from the Germanic god, Tiw, and associated with Mars. We aimed for the Moon on Monday, so let's ramp it up a notch and set our sights even higher today.
Mars is also known as the 'Red Planet' so make it a red letter day for your business. The phrase "He looked at me like I was from Mars" is also used when you have done something strange or out of the ordinary.
Doing something strange, breaking the mould and surprising yourself can be a great way to open the door to some new business. Potential customers are everywhere and Tuesday is a good day for finding them in a new and unconventional way.
One of my favourite places to look for new business is the supermarket. Try smiling saying "Good Morning" to someone wearing an item of clothing with their business name on it. Asking them where they get their embroidery done is a good opening. In the car park, the same can apply to signwritten vans or a particular type of car. Signs are everywhere about what people may buy, you only have to look for them to find something to say.
Make it amusing, make it very short; remember you have introduced yourself unbidden and everyone's time is precious, but make an impression, hand over a business card and wish them a good day then leave it at that. The seeds have been sown. Even if that person doesn't need what you do, they may well know someone who does and will remember the smiling, cheerful enthusiast they met in the car park.
My own opening is simple. I look for corporate clothing or signwritten vehicles with no web address on them and open the conversation asking who did the signage. When they tell me, I simply say, they left something off. This invariably prompts them to ask what. That is when I can say that there is no web address on there. If this means that they have no web presence yet, the door is open and I can deliver a business card and go on my way.
Do something out of the ordinary today!
