Don’t lose potential business and customers because of slow website loading speeds.

Are you losing potential customers due to a slow website?

If your website takes over 3 seconds to load – you will be missing out on business.

For every extra half a second a website takes to load, you will be losing 20% of your website traffic. Can you afford to miss out?

Website visitors will be expecting your website to load in less than 2 seconds. That might seem really quick but that’s the reality of attention spans nowadays. I can get your website loading in that timescale by optimising each of the areas below.

  • Images

    Uncompressed images, incorrectly sized images and incorrect formats of images drastically slows your website down.

  • Fonts

    Uncompressed fonts make the site more data-heavy than is required.

  • Plugins

    Too many plugins, using multiple plugins for the same task or large plugins will slow your website down. An example of this is using multiple types of contact forms on your site when only one is required.

  • Code

    Compressions of the website's code can be made, decreasing the data size of the website and therefore allowing faster load speeds.

  • Caching

    Caching allows the website's pages to be stored on the browser so that it doesn't need to retrieve them every time a user visits your site.

  • Site Maintenance

    Plugin updates and database optimisations need to be carried out regularly so that the speed of your website is maintained.

There are many tools which can help you to test your website load speed.

Frequently Asked Questions

On average, a website takes 3-4 weeks to build with a first draft of the site usually taking 1 week to be produced. The time it takes depends on the content already prepared (text and images) and the complexity of the site.

Costings are tailored to website, depending on the number of pages, complexity and other services such as hosting and domain names. I am happy to discuss in detail the specific costs and any specific budget that you may have.
