Evesham, Worcestershire (PRWEB UK) 27 January 2013
With the recent heavy fall of snow throughout most of the UK, people have been almost forced to stay indoors due to the constantly deteriorating outdoor conditions. Staying inside has led many people to search out weather conditions in various locations across the country through the use of pictures and live webcam streams.
Thankfully, online retailer WoodworkTools.co.uk happened to have a webcam integrated into their site which has resulted in an extremely high number of visits over the snowy period. “Compared to the previous January, the number of visitors to the site has more than tripled!” explains Marketing Manager, Scott Morris.
People wondering why a bit of snow could cause such a dramatic change to site visits, look no further... The view from the webcam should explain it all by itself (yes, it’s that good!)

The view is apparently so stunning that several people who have viewed the cam in the past week have actually emailed in asking about the whereabouts of the view and thanking the retailer for providing it. “I actually had the pleasure of seeing this webcam in the summer when everything was in various shades of green as opposed to white; but both views are equally stunning and I just want to thank you for sharing this with everyone for free,” stated ‘Trevor’.
For those who are interested in the location of the webcam, it can be found in Aston-On-Clun amongst the rolling hills of Shropshire. So, if anyone fancies a drive (or walk if they live local enough), Aston-On-Clun is definitely a place to check out if scenic views are on your list of favourite things.
“Originally we had the webcam put on the site in order to aid visibility in search engines as well as provide shoppers with something to occupy them whilst browsing the site,” explains James Cook E-Commerce Assistant. “So not only has it fulfilled at least one purpose, it has also led to a record number of views which has in turn boosted sales significantly – it really is a ‘win, win’ situation!”
