Tips to to help speed up your business website and make it load faster



How to Increase Website Speed

If your website is slow, it's more likely that potential buyers will abandon your website and choose your competitors instead.

Here are our tips to help speed up your business website and make it load faster:

Move Your Website Off WordPress, WIX, etc
These can be very slow, especially if you use a lot of plugins

Make Sure You Use a Fast Web Hosting Provider
Some web hosting providers are slow (long server response time) because they put too many websites on the same server. Choose one where the server response time is fast.

Measure Your Website Performance
Check your website speed using tool such as Google's PageSpeed Insight to understand how fast it is at present and areas of improvement.

Properly Size Images
Make sure all images are the right size and resolution.

Minify Content
Make sure all assets are minimised and only use what you need. Don't use unnecessary bloated frameworks.

Use Caching Correctly
Caching relates to which assets on your website can be re-used between page loads. Used correctly, this can speed up a website.
