Your WordPress site loads too slowly. You’ve read page speed tips out the wazoo, but that’s a geeky black hole you don’t want to go down.
Only…you’re losing visitors.
– or –
Most of what I do solves not only the current problems with your site, but the reasons the problems developed in the first place. I’ll leave behind solutions that automatically address the worst offenders so you won’t have to worry about them.
That said, you could go crazy and ruin your performance gains by installing a dozen terrible plugins, or switch to a bloated or poorly-coded theme. I’ll do my best to discourage that by including helpful suggestions in my final report to you.
Your site will be as fast as it can possibly be without taking more extreme measures.
One site may have huge gains because it started off incredibly slow. The next may not gain much percentage-wise.
Both will be faster. Guaranteed.
As I work on your site, I take notes about any additional measures you could take to improve your site’s speed, e.g., changing to a faster server or using a different theme.
I’ll share these recommendations with you in the personalized report I’ll provide after your optimization is complete.
This service is strictly for WordPress websites, but I do offer a diagnostic service to help you pinpoint speed issues with other types of websites. Click the link below to find out more.
I’ll make it easy 🙂
Before I work on your site, I’ll run a performance test to document where we started. Once my work is complete, I’ll test again. I’ll provide you with both reports.
In addition, I’ll leave in place a solution that will help you automatically keep images in check going forward. It does a good job of reducing their size and load time without affecting quality.
If you have a large image library (this is common with sites that have been online a while), there may be a small additional charge (and possibly a slight increase in turnaround time) to optimize the entire library. If I find that this is the case I will get in touch and let you know.
I tackle the issues responsible for the vast majority of slow website problems.
Not worrying about things that may only improve your speed by 1% but double the amount of time I spend optimizing means I can offer this service at a reasonable price.
Sometimes things like your website’s server or theme affect your speed. Even if it’s something I don’t handle, I’ll let you know what’s going on and can usually provide recommendations to help solve the issue.
I often can make improvements, but as you might imagine it depends on why the site is still slow.
I’m glad to help you figure out what makes sense. Just get in touch and tell me about your site, and we’ll go from there.
No, but your WordPress.com site may not need anything you can’t do yourself given enough time.
WordPress.com doesn’t allow you to add many of the things that slow down regular websites. The biggest problem is usually images that haven’t been properly sized, so make sure you’re using the smallest image sized you can get away with.
The other potential culprit is complicated WordPress themes. Choose a simple design from a reputable developer. You can’t go wrong with themes from Automattic (the creators of WordPress).
Not necessarily, but an ‘A’ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be 🙂
I focus on things that improve speed most, not the grades assigned by speed checking websites.
Some performance test measures don’t help page load speed much, and they’re more technical a fix than it’s worth pursuing for what you might gain.
If you’re interested in getting an ‘A’ regardless, I can help. Just get in touch.
Hasn’t happened yet 🙂
It’s rare that I can’t make any degree of improvement, but if that happens I will reverse any changes I’ve made to your site and refund your money.
