Your slow website is costing you sales. Internet users are impatient, they need fast and easy access to the information they desire. If your website takes more than 3 seconds to load, you're potentially losing visitors to your competitors.
The modern Internet gives people around the world an opportunity to access information at lightning speeds. Whether they’re on a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device – information is just a few seconds away.
With these changes, users become more impatient. They are used to accessing information quickly and finding answers to their questions or solutions to their problems.
When a visitor first comes to your website, you have around 5-7 seconds to capture their attention, on average.
How fast is your website right now? If it’s taking longer than three seconds, you’re potentially losing visitors to your competition.
Imagine putting up a sign in your shop window or on your website, pointing your visitors to your nearest competitor. How do you think that would go for your business? That’s exactly what you end up doing when you have a slow website.
A fast website is a great trust factor for your business. People buy from those they know, like and trust. Ensuring your website loads quickly is the first step to a new visitor trusting your business.
Search engines such as Google, consider a fast website to be a positive ranking factor. What this means in simple terms is that a fast website can help you to rank higher in the search results.
If you run an E-Commerce business, you’ll likely already know that up to 70% of people will abandon their cart at your checkout. This can be for many reasons, such as a distraction or simply just a change of mind.
A slow website can greatly increase the abandoned cart rate. If someone sees a website loading very slowly just as they are about to input their payment details, it can have a huge negative effect.
To put it simply, you need a fast website. It leads to more visibility, more visitors, more inquiries and more sales.
Our Speed Optimization service has been designed to help you with all of the above issues… and more!
Your website is one of the best sales platforms that you can have for your business. It allows you to showcase your business to visitors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You only have one chance at a great first impression though. When someone reaches your website, you need to utilize the first 5-7 seconds to really capture their attention and draw them into your content.
If your website is loading slowly, you’re missing out on this opportunity. This will leave those potential visitors looking elsewhere for help and answers to their problems.
Our Speed Optimization service will speed up your website and optimize it for today’s modern Internet users.
As you’ve read in our guide, there are a number of key areas that need to be covered when it comes to optimizing the speed of your website.
Our Speed Optimization service will take a deep look at your website, content, functionality and hosting. We’ll fix issues that we find and set up caching so that your website is delivered in an optimal way to all visitors.
If you have a global audience, we will set up a Content Delivery Network (CDN). This works by taking a copy of your website and loading it from many locations around the world. Users in other countries will have a vastly improved experience when browsing your website, as it will load from the location closest to them.
It may be that your hosting company is a cause of a bottleneck. In this situation, we will recommend one or more alternative hosting options. If we recommend an alternate provider, we’d highly recommend that you take advantage of this as it’s one of the most common causes of a slow website. Just like many things in life, not all hosting companies are created equal!
At the end of our Speed Optimization service, we’ll provide you with a PDF report of the work that we have carried out and the improvements that we’ve made to your website. You’ll be able to test the speed yourself and see the changes in your own web browser.

Our Speed Optimization service starts with an audit of your website and hosting provider. From here, we’ll carry out the work and resolve any issues that we’ve found. This may include recommending a new hosting provider to you. Once the work has been completed, we will carry out further testing and then provide you with the finished report in PDF format.
We’ll take an initial look at the speed of your website and assess any areas that need improving. We’ll be paying particular attention to how quickly the website loads in browser, to visitors from locations where you provide your products or services. This data will be saved and will be used as a benchmark.
One of the key areas that is often a bottleneck for website speed is the hosting company that you use to host your website. We’ll review the hosting company and the service they are providing. This may lead to us recommending an alternative hosting provider and/or testing on an alternate service to show you the speed difference.
Now we move onto the main bulk of the work in our Speed Optimization service. At this point we’ll be putting into place changes and tweaks to your website that will optimize everything so that it loads as quickly as possible. If you have a global audience, this is the point where we would be setting up a CDN (Content Delivery Network).
After we’ve carried out the tweaks and changes to your website, we’ll carry out some further speed and performance tests. We’ll compare these results to the benchmark that we took before we started. The website should be loading quickly with no visible errors in the front-end or back-end of the site.
After we have completed the Speed Optimization work, we’ll compile a PDF report for your perusal. The report will detail the initial findings that we had, the work that we’ve carried out, any key areas of note and the results of the final tests after we finished. We may also make recommendations for best practice use of your website moving forwards.
The speed of your website is an important trust factor with both visitors and also the search engines. If you want to offer your visitors the best experience and capture their attention – you need to have a website that loads quickly. From a search engine perspective, a faster website can help your website to be more visible in the search results.
We typically need around 2-4 working days to optimize your website’s speed from the point of receiving your order. From time to time this may be a little longer, as it will depend on our current work schedule. Once the Speed Optimization work is complete, we will send over our report, including details of the work completed.
