UK Web Host FastHosts Launches New Business Study

September 21, 2009 by · Comments Off on UK Web Host FastHosts Launches New Business Study 

Web Hosting Tools Gloucester, UK – 43 per cent of UK companies admit that they have no quantifiable method of measuring whether their website is effective, according to research released today Fasthosts Internet Ltd, a leading web hosting provider and domain name registrar. The study of 430 UK firms(1) found that whilst the average business has published a website for 3-4 years, a huge number of businesses have no numerical grasp on how well their website is performing, or whether it is leading to sales. 1 in 4 owners do not believe their website has potential as a sales channel. A remarkable 77 per cent of firms fail to measure any type of ‘return on investment’ for their websites, and 1 in 3 owners (34 per cent) admit that they have never considered checking the popularity or effectiveness of their website. The research suggests that many companies are failing to analyse and optimise online as diligently as they do other areas of their operation.

Whilst studies show that the majority of business owners today realise the importance of having a presence on the Internet, it appears that a great many do no more than publish their website. Fasthosts’ survey of 430 small local businesses using a website, found that over 40 per cent currently do not use data to assess whether their website is working to support their business goals. During the first half of 2009, the vast majority of SMEs (83 per cent) have not analysed their websites performance against their business plan.
