Speed and optimization are some of the most overlooked aspects of building a website. BUT… knowing how to make your website faster is critical not only from a user experience perspective, but also from a woo-commerce and shopping experience.

When you’re building online businesses and websites it’s not all Lambos, raw egg smoothies, and bottle service. Some days, you’ve got to think about dev ops issues (and opportunities) like site speed. This week we have Shawn O’Neill of Speed Sense on the pod talking all things speed (no Lambos).

Why learn how to make your website faster?

Besides the shocking ROI of a single millisecond improvement, the BB19 pod covers causes and benefits, including common culprits such as:

  • sudden growth, which generally results in less communication as people just carry on trying to do their best
  • a lack of focus on site speed or a lack of issues reported about it
  • optimizing too soon with too many addons or plugins
  • over-dynamic pages with tons of media or product
  • lazy-loading addons which sometimes lazy load the user experience, too.
