46 per cent of Britain’s smallest enterprises still without a website

46 per cent of Britain’s smallest enterprises are still without a website and many seek assistance in getting one, according to research released 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…

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.
