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

Staunton, "the place of the stones", was the ancient name given by the Anglo-Saxons. The village has stones of ancient origins and of mysterious forms, these are the Buck, Toad, Broad, Long and Queen Stone, all of which have origins dating back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. The Buckstone lies in Highmeadow Woods near the village. The huge rock on the summit of Buckstone Hill is said to have been used in Druid ceremonies, and actually used to rock before it was dislodged in 1885. This point is at 915 feet and one can view panoramic scenery such as views over the Forest of dean, Highmeadow Woods and the Black Mountains. The woods around Staunton are not actually part of the Royal Forest but are part of the Manor of Staunton.

In the churchyard of All Saints Church, you will see the grave of David Mushet (1772-1847). With his son, he developed interest in the iron industry of Dean and laid much of the groundwork for the impending steel industry in Britain.

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.

Midweek days are great for approaching new opportunities at work. If you are in business to business sales, customers will be over the Monday emergencies and focusing on the things they need to achieve in their own activities. You can help them, and all it takes is for them to know that. Introductory phone calls on Tuesday can be the most productive of the week so use spare time to call some people you don't know yet. There was a time when you didn't know the person who is now your best customer so who knows who you will get introduced to today?

Introductory calls are frequently ignored as a way of getting business for many reasons. Some people fear rejection. Some are unsure of how to open the conversation. Perhaps identifying the people to call is a problem. Identifying the objectives of the call can be a sticking point.

Whatever the reason for not doing this, the rewards that can be gained can make you glad you did it.

The Village Websmith's work isn't only about creating effective websites. Through workshops and seminars as well as networking groups, there is help and advice always available to get more value out of promotion via the Internet, telephone, email and press advertising.
