August is Speed Awareness Month! We just did some updates to the Marketing Technology Blog this week, including removing unused scripts, unused CSS, compressing our CSS files, and modifying our social buttons so that they load asynchronously after the page loads. Combined with an awesome hosting company and CDN (affiliate links), we’re finally making some headway – but we’re continuing to work on it! As our site continues to grow, we know that speed is of the essence. Here are some eye-opening stats for any business on web speed. You may be tempted to host with a cheap host, but what you fail to realize is how much money that slow hosting is costing your business!
A fast loading website is so important to your bottom line that we have dedicated this whole month to it. We posted a lot of great articles and many companies are giving away FREE web performance tools. (Make sure you grab them, there are only two days left!)
