How To Drop A Full Second Off Your Website Load Speed

How faster is your website loading?

If your website or sales funnels are taking over 3 seconds to load you are losing A LOT of visitors and potential sales. On average, people have an attention span of fewer than 8 seconds. So waiting over 3 seconds for a page to load has them moving on before they even see what you have to offer on your website.

So I always run my finished funnel pages through GTMetrix. The funnel I just created is a simple two-step lead magnet. After adding images, background photos, a mockup and some icons to the squeeze page, my funnel was loading in 3.5 seconds. Still not bad right? 👍🏻

But I knew it could be faster.🚀

So I looked at the report from GT Metrix and I suggest you do the same if you want to improve your site speed too. I discovered that my uploaded images were not at optimal sizes. GT Metrix even told me the optimal size of the images that were loading slowly.

So I took the images and did the following:

  1. Re-sized them in Canva.
  2. Compressed the file using ImageOptim (free app for Macs).
  3. Then compress the file again using TinyPNG (free as well just Google it).

My Results

My website load speed went from 3.5 seconds to 2.5 seconds! 🤩🥳

Using the correct size images and minifying them really does help to speed up your site. I hope this helps someone who is using a photo-heavy site.

Are you looking to find a website builder that also has lightning-fast load times?
