The internet is worth £100bn a year to the UK economy, a study has concluded. The research, which was commissioned by Google, found that the internet accounts for 7.2% of the UK’s gross domestic product (GDP).

The UK, according to the report, is the world’s leading nation for e-commerce. For every £1 spent online to import goods, £2.80 is exported. This is a huge market and something that should not be ignored by small businesses. Even a small e-commerce site, done in the right way for your target market, can generate significant revenue for a small business.

Small businesses that actively use the internet report sales growth more than four times greater than that of less active companies
