webinthebox® from the village websmith - stay ahead
Have you updated your website lately? Well if you haven't, prehaps you are wondering why the phone doesn't ring as often as it used to... The real key to success with your website is to keep the content updated little and often. All businesses evolve, products and services change in reaction to your market, so let people know that you are on the ball.
The Middle Way
In an ideal world all work would be done by Friday. Unfortunately, none of us is Robinson Crusoe and we have to balance tasks with the time available. The understanding of this is what led to the creation of the Webinthebox? product and the Village Websmith structure. Your website gets kept up to date through a collaborative approach where you do what you have the time and resources to do, then we pick up the rest. You pay only for the help you really need and your website keeps you ahead of your competitors.
webinthebox® from the village websmith - the product
Webinthebox? has been developed since 2003 to give users an easy, understandable way to manage the content of their own websites, without the delays and bills that can be associated with using a web designer to make changes for you.
Training from basics to master classes
Initial training from your Village Websmith is included in the package and for many customers that is enough. However, there are frequent opportunities to take on more advanced training on Webinthebox? courses and seminars.
webinthebox® from the village websmith - the difference
What is different with Webinthebox? is the way that your website is provided and set up. Disregarding all the technical reasons for choosing the Village Websmith to provide your web presence, the real difference is that you are dealing with a real person. Not only that, but a real person who is chosen for being a business person rather than a techie. The Village Websmiths are all there to offer help and advice about the stuff that really matters - how to get your message across.
The independence you want, the support you need
Once your Webinthebox® site is set up, you can do all the maintenance and management yourself, you can ask us to do it all, or we can share the workload between us. You can do the parts you are comfortable and happy with while your Village Websmith takes over the rest, then bills you on a time taken basis.
webinthebox® from the village websmith - why it works
Webinthebox? as a product comprises three main elements:
In a world where there is a strong polarisation of offers from the 'cheap and cheeerful' DIY at one end to the high cost of bespoke web presences at the other, we aim to offer a middle ground. The flexibility of the content management system and the layout structure means that the end result can be as distinctive and individual as your business, and the ready to use reserved function pages cut down the time it takes to get your site working the way you want.
Continuity, performance and security
Because the core files for Webinthebox? are reloaded afresh every day, whenever there is an improvement or update to keep abreast of latest search engine or browser technology, all Village Websmith customers receive the benefit of that change the next day.
webinthebox® from the village websmith - the process
Getting your business a professional, dedicated web presence with Webinthebox® is a very simple process:
What happens next?
Rather than just leave you alone, the site is monitored closely in the early stages of its life. Search engines index the web at their own pace, so it is a matter of keeping an eye on a new site until it has been indexed for the first time. That is when we can tell how good a job has been done with the content, and where a tweak or two may be needed. You then get together with your Village Websmith to make any necessary changes.
