Research from various sources indicates that your website offers the best and most measurable ROI. So let’s get down to business and determine a realistic budget. 

We recommend that you spend at least 50% of your marketing budget each year on your online marketing strategy. For the sake of quick math, let’s say your monthly marketing budget is £8,000—that would be £4,000/month for website work. Maybe you spend a large chunk the first year to get a new website in place. Then, the following year use the money for analytic reporting, social media strategy, complementary email marketing and search engine optimization.
