1&1 Internet Reports 37% of Britons Are Online Givers

October 13, 2009 by · Comments Off on 1&1 Internet Reports 37% of Britons Are Online Givers 

1and1Hosting Blog LONDON – Britain is a nation of online givers with over a third of consumers (37 per cent) having used a charity’s website as a channel to donate money, according to research released by 1&1,, the world’s largest web host. The survey of 1700 British consumers found for 31 per cent of Britons, giving money via a charity website is now their preferred way to donate. Second only to donating in-person, the method is now more popular than direct debits, phone payments and the post. In fact, two thirds of consumers believe they are more likely to give to charity as a direct result of the availability of online payment. Furthermore, individual charity websites are now the resource most utilised when people are considering making a donation. Investing in a quality web presence is now a must for all non-profits, with consumers expecting such websites to be as attractive as business ones. In fact, charities can be reassured that three quarters of Britons feel that a charity website can never be ‘too flash’ or ‘too expensive-looking’.

1&1’s ‘Non-Profits on the Web Study’ has found that the individual websites of charities and non-profit organisations are now the preferred port of call for consumers wishing to research causes and donate money without visiting the charity. In total, 60 per cent of Britons have used a charity or non-profit group’s website. Over one third (37 per cent) of respondents have used such a website as a channel to donate money, with 31 per cent now preferring to make their donations to charity via websites. Whilst in-person donations were most popular (42 per cent), making donations online is today more favoured than established fundraising practices such as direct debit forms (16 per cent), posting cheques (8 per cent) and payments by phone (4 per cent). Indeed, two thirds (68 per cent) of respondents believe they are more likely to give to charity today than ever before, as a result of the convenience of being able to pay online. Read more

2 out of 5 SMBs Don’t Exist Online

July 29, 2009 by · Comments Off on 2 out of 5 SMBs Don’t Exist Online 

1and1Web Hosting ToolsPhiladelphia, PA – SMB owners risk unnecessary spending due to confusion over the cost and effort involved in Web hosting, according to research released today by 1&1 Internet, Inc., the world’s largest Web host by known servers. The results from a study of over 1,800 US small to midsize businesses [1] suggest that most SMB owners are misinformed about the cost of owning a business website.

The study discovered that 40 percent of SMBs do not yet have an online presence. Of those businesses without a website, 53 percent stated they had no idea what a website would cost each month. These small business owners need more information about the features and benefits of Web hosting to broaden their range of possibilities to profit from the internet.

Oliver Mauss, CEO of 1&1 Internet Inc., said, “While many small companies today leverage the Web with increasing proficiency, too many businesses remain excluded from the online world. Although an online presence becomes more and more important for the acquisition of new customers, small business owners are still unaware of the true cost of Web hosting. They overestimate the necessary business investments for being online and underestimate how simple and affordable it is to source a website.”

UK Survey Reveils Small Businesses Are STill Without A Website

May 12, 2009 by · Comments Off on UK Survey Reveils Small Businesses Are STill Without A Website 

Web Hosting ToolsLondon – 46 per cent of Britain’s smallest enterprises are still without a website and many seek assistance in getting one, according to research released today by 1&1 Internet Ltd., the world’s largest web host by known servers. A study of 530 small enterprises found that from those without a website, 41 per cent recognise that a web presence could increase their sales, but believe they are prevented by factors including the time, cost and skill required to keep a website. The data suggests that such companies are misinformed over the true cost and time needed to build a website themselves. Significantly, a further 47 per cent of firms still off-line believe that a website could not benefit their business. This is in direct contrast with a further survey of 152 similar businesses with websites, where 80 per cent gain revenue from their sites, and 80 per cent would be willing to build their next website themselves using a DIY-style website package.

Whilst many British companies achieve increased visibility and sales online, 1&1’s ‘Smaller Business Online Survey'(1) finds that an alarming number of small sized enterprises have been left behind. The study of 530 enterprises employing 1 to 5 people (including tradesmen, entrepreneurs, small retailers, self-employed and home workers), finds that today some 46 per cent are still without a website on the Internet to promote their business. Whilst the business owners involved are likely to use the Web in their personal lives, their enterprise activities remain out of sight of millions of potential customers. Some 41 per cent of those off-line desire a web presence to increase their sales, but first need concerns over the costs, time and skill to be addressed. For 1 in 5 owners, the worry that a lack of a website may be losing them business has caused negative emotions such as “stress” and “anxiety”. Read more
