The simplest solution is use an existing CMS and template (WordPress, Drupal, etc) and set them up with a google analytics account and tracking code.

but iv already created the website and its up and running

switching to a cms would mean having to create the whole website again as a template for that particular cms!!

ahhh…Eugene was faster… :D

To add to the discussion, you can also ask for a WordPress designer here, just in case you are not familiar with WP themes.

Good luck with your project :)

Usually it doesn’t take much to convert the HTML to a WordPress theme, for example.

Of course, it all depends on what functionality you have there…

EDIT : just saw this on CodeCanyon…maybe it helps: http://codecanyon.net/item/dijitals-cms/102279

Your client is wanting exactly what Wordpress can give them. If you’re not up to the task of converting the HTML to a WP theme, then simply outsource it and (depending on how complicated the website is), you can probably get an eager coder to turn it around for you in a few days tops at a relatively low cost.
