  4. 4. Where’s our data from? - 2 Website take-up service Used by 33% of all councils Pop-up survey offered to one in five web users What were they looking for did they find it, how good was the experience? © Socitm Ltd
  5. 5. Where’s our data from? - 3 Channel value benchmarking Small groups of councils Compare cost, scope and value from all channels Benchmarking to identify improvement © Socitm Ltd
