Got the Need for Speed? Learn Why and How to Optimize for Site Speed

Imagine this. You see an ad on Facebook for a futuristic koozie that promised to keep your frosty beverage as cold as Hoth. Your credit card heats up and is ready to burn through your wallet like hot magma. You click on the ad… and wait… and wait… and wait.

This koozie is dead to me.

That is what goes through John Peterson’s mind – and the minds of most website visitors – when they have to wait. In fact, if something meaningful isn’t displayed in 3 seconds, the site is dead to 53% of them. Wait much longer, and the rest will wipe it from their memory.

Site speed is crucial for online success. John Peterson will share:

  •  How to measure site speed
  •  Key features of a fast web host
  •  Coding techniques that your website needs to support
  •  The best plugins and services

If you want a higher ROI from your lead gen website, e-commerce store, or publishing powerhouse, then it must be fast!Attend this session to learn how.
