Last year, Communications Regulator Ofcom reported that UK adults now spend more time using technology devices than they did sleeping. UK adults spend an average 8 hours and 41 minutes a day on media devices compared with the average night’s sleep of 8 hours and 21 minutes. So when we say there has never been a better time to have an online presence we really mean it.
In addition, online spending has increased significantly over the past few years. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that 76% of British adults accessed the internet everyday – rising by 21 million people since 2006. Internet shopping has grown in popularity with 74% of adults buying goods and services online last year. The most significant increase in on-line purchasing however, is from the over 65’s seeing 40% buying online in 2014 compared to only 16% in 2008.
