Many small businesses have WordPress websites. There are a lot of great reasons to choose this platform, from the fact that it is inexpensive to all of the great themes offered. If there's one thing you don't love about your WordPress website, though, it is the fact that it often runs a bit slow. This isn't something to ignore! If your website is slow, people will get frustrated and leave. An analysis of data by Google shows us that 53% of people will leave if a webpage doesn't load within three seconds. But the average load time for sites is 19 seconds on a 3G connection and 14 seconds on a 4G connection. If your website is slow, your potential customers and clients will find a competitor with an easier to use and faster option. It is as simple as that!
