Experts say, 4G has the potential to give 100MBPS twice as fast as the quickest fibre optic broadband available in the UK. </li></ul>
  27. 28. Don’t Market If You Can’t Measure <ul><li>I cannot stress enough how important Google Analytics is, or any form of analytics software to measure the performance of your website. </li></ul><ul><li>Marketing which is not measured is wasted marketing as you don’t know how successful it has been and if it is viable for you to rerun that campaign. </li></ul><ul><li>Unique telephone numbers and promotional codes are the easiest way of finding out what works best for you. </li></ul>
