Mobile Site Speed Matters

Read this out loud:

One Mississippi

Two Mississippi

Three Mississippi

Four Mississippi

Five Mississippi

Now, imagine you just clicked a link – begin reading:

One Mississippi

Two Mississippi

Three Mississippi

Four Mississippi

Five Mississippi

…and now the web page loads.

I imagine most of you would have either:

  1. left before the page loads.
  2. thought “what’s taking so long,” entering into that website with negative thoughts.

Google Research says that 53% leave if a page doesn’t load in 3 seconds or less!

Did You Know:

*Bounce = Viewed only one page of your site.

PLUS, it’s estimated retail/ecommerce websites lose 20% of their revenue potential for every second past 3 seconds a page takes to load.

The evidence is very clear: a slow site significantly impacts results. Mobile site speed matters. Imagine all the work & potentially dollars you are leveraging to drive traffic to your site, only to find out the site isn’t built for speed, and those efforts are largely wasted.

The good news!

You are now aware, and that’s the first step toward action.
