Website Speed Tips to Boost Revenues

I noticed some people struggling with website speed issues and thought I'd share some tips. Your aim for website speed should be under 3 seconds, as half of visitors are lost on page load alone. Amazon invests heavily in website optimization for speed. Your eCommerce business should too.

These are some revenue-boosting ideas you can share with your web developer or IT team:

  1. Use Astra WordPress theme (lightweight and free)
  2. Compress images (use online tools like TinyPNG or TinyJPG)
  3. Optimize server (clean the MySQL database, contact web host for help)
  4. Minify code (CSS and HTML)
  5. Follow Google PageSpeed’s list of suggestions

Controversial ones:

  1. Don’t use embeds (link out instead)
  2. Don’t use plugins (they actually slow down the site!)
  3. Skip Google Analytics if you’re starting out, it slows the site down. The most important metric is sales!
