Press Release Summary = How many businesses donate a whole website to charity before they've even made a penny? For one UK based company, ChilliBytes.co.uk, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for charity.
Press Release Body = London, United Kingdom - Got-Charity?
2006 started with a couple of friends scratching their heads on a way to promote their home made hot-sauce. After being thoroughly confused by all the internet marketing gurus they decided to go back to basics. Create a place where people who liked hot-sauce could find out about other people who liked, you guessed it - hot-sauce. Got-Hot.co.uk was born, a niche focused portal of sorts.
After spending a little time getting the word out, inquiries came in to ask if they knew of any websites where people could find tattoos designs, some asked about wedding suppliers and others organic clothing. That\'s when their "eureka" moment came and the \'Got-\' sites were born.
Not intending to run after commercial success, they believed a gap in the internet advertising market was staring them in the face and they decided to do something about it.
With one of the biggest charity events of the year approaching, the London Marathon, they decided that rather than waiting to hit the big time, before giving back to charity, Chillibytes.co.uk would donate Got-Charity.co.uk, free advertising to any charitable organization wanting coverage on their already busy network of Got- sites.
"We felt that many small based businesses couldn\'t afford to donate as much as they\'d like, but we could go the whole hog and give them a website of their own" said a representative of the company.
Got-Charity.co.uk, an imaged based site is arguably giving more \'visibility\' than a text based search page would. The company has already placed many of the larger charities like RSPCA, Oxfam, Cancer Research and the Salvation Army on the \'pixel blocked\' page.
Far from a marketing ploy, a ChilliBytes.co.uk representative claims that a lot of time, money and hard work have gone into the site and will continue to do so until the page is full and enough people know the Got-Charity.co.uk exists. "It\'s a classic win win situation, for us and all the charities involved"
The company is calling on all charities big and small to go to the site and contact a representative to get their organization up there and get involved.
They say charity begins at home, but ChilliBytes.co.uk thinks this could be the home of charity.
