Website Page Speed Tool

Speed builds loyalty and trust. Customers want what they want and they want it fast—instant gratification is now the norm. In the case of your website, customers want it to load in the minimum amount of time possible—so much so that delays reaching online content have been proven to increase heart rate and stress levels.

Speed is a competitive differentiator. You need to compare your website speed to that of your competitors or you’ll risk losing a customer.

Jason Murphy, Director of Client Service

Speed should be thought of as a dimension to your business strategy, not as a by-product of seeking efficiency, but as a means of winning over the hearts and minds of customers.

Speed builds loyalty and trust. Customers want what they want and they want it fast—instant gratification is now the norm. In the case of your website, customers want it to load in the minimum amount of time possible—so much so that delays reaching online content have been proven to increase heart rate and stress levels. Speed is a competitive differentiator. How does your website speed compare to that of your competitors or benchmarks for your industry? Speed should be thought of as a dimension to your business strategy, not as a by-product of seeking efficiency, but as a means of winning over the hearts and minds of customers.

You’ve likely heard about the studies that show the power of one second on the internet; how a one-second delay in page load time results in 11 percent fewer page views; a 16 percent decrease in customer satisfaction; and a 7 percent drop in conversions. That’s an instant negative impact on your brand and your business. Every second can mean the difference between a sale and a customer lost due to a sour experience.

Think of it this way: if you run an ecommerce website with an average sale of $100, an average conversion rate of 3 percent, and an average of 2,000 visitors per day, a delay of just one second would cost your business more than $1,000 per day. Bump that delay up to five seconds, and now you’re at nearly $3,000 per day—that’s $1 million per year for a delay of five seconds. And as the seconds tick higher, your bottom line sinks.

While you may not be able to reverse the rotation of the Earth to turn back time (like Superman) to make your site faster to avoid that revenue loss, taking action now to speed up your site would certainly make you a hero, right?
