Plusnet wins not once but twice at key customers awards

January 30th, 2015 16:15 by Catherine

True Sheffield grit and determination showed this week as our team braved the adverse weather to get in to the offices, demonstrating the teamwork and will to win that is core to the people of Plusnet.

We all take pride in the continued service we deliver to our customers: it’s reasons like this  that Plusnet has continued to be recognised by the industry and customers. This never failing commitment to customer service was recognised in two separate award wins this week.

At the MoneySuperMarket Awards this Wednesday, Plusnet scooped three major awards, all voted for by our customers: Best Value Broadband, Best for Quality and Reliability and Best for Customer Service. And Thursday night, we did it again at the uSwitch Broadband Awards, where Plusnet won the much coveted Best Customer Service, Best Value  Home Broadband and Best Broadband and Homephone awards.

This is a a real testament to the quality of people in our business and the hard work we have put in over the last year.

Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day?

Will Black Friday / Cyber Monday become the new Boxing Day Sale?

Black Friday – the retail sales that occur on the Friday after Thanksgiving—used to be an American tradition, until now. This year, the day of sales arrived in the UK.

UK based internet searches for “Black Friday” were up by 355% in 2013 and look to be even higher this year. This ever increasing online popularity of Black Friday has led to a large number of online retailers in the UK offering Black Friday deals. Last year, so many retailers ran promotions that 72% of the UK population said they know about the Black Friday sales.

If Black Friday continues to become more popular in the UK it’s possible it could overtake Boxing Day and be the biggest sales day in the UK. Plusnet looks into how possible this may be.

A guide to viral charity fundraising

Over the past year it’s been hard to ignore the trend in online viral charity fundraising drives – #nomakeupselfie raised £8 million in less than a week, whilst the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge raised £62,000,000 over the course of its lifetime. We have had the chance to work with some incredible charities here at Plusnet, such as the Jane Tomlinson Appeal, so we thought we’d take a look at how both your own charity and yourself can emulate the success of others by setting a trend and getting something to go viral online.
