New research shows a lack of trust in businesses without a web presence

A poll by web hosting firm 1&1 Internet reveals nearly 50% of consumers have 'concerns' if a firm has no website.

The survey showed how half of consumers now regularly buy from online-only businesses.

According to the poll:

41% of retailers believe the internet has led to an improvement in work/life balance.
54% said they had made adjustments to their business plan as a result.
83% of those polled said the internet had made it easier for people to succeed in business while a third believe it has been a significant motivator for people from less privileged backgrounds to start up a venture.
