There has never been a better time for East England businesses to grow by trading overseas, and website sales are becoming an ever more important means for business growth, but what do you need to consider when seeking more sales through your website?

For example, did you know that 70% of world internet users search in languages other than English?

So if you are running an English based website you can take steps to become more visible.
