When you run an internet-based business or blog, the website’s speed is more important than you realize. At BionicWP, we strive to provide you with remote web hosting services that help you grow. Before you consider additional features, however, having a better understanding of why your website’s speed is important. After all, if it can negatively affect your business, it is something worth considering.
Slow & Steady Doesn’t Always Win the Race
Training for a marathon often starts with small steps. Slow and steady may be a great motto when it comes to running a marathon, but not necessarily when we are talking about website load times.
In today’s society, there is not hiding the fact that we want it all, and we want it right away. Whether it is fast food or quick deliveries, customers like to receive their goods as quickly as possible. In fact, the faster you deliver, the happier they will be. This includes providing instant access to your online wares.
In the world of internet-based businesses and blogs, every second it takes your webpage to load affects whether or not a customer buys from you. In fact, 47% of all consumers expect a webpage to load in 2 seconds, if not less. If a webpage takes over 3 seconds to load, 40% of potential customers will abandon the attempt. When a website performs poorly, approximately 79% of shoppers are less likely to return. Of those who online shop, 44% will share poor experiences with a webpage with others.
Bloggers, this applies to you too! Conversations, while important to businesses too, are a bloggers measurement of influence. In other words, your blogs are not just a one-way conversation. Feedback, comments, and other conversations help increase the dialogue and popularity of your blog. A one-second delay in load time, however, can lead to a 7% reduction in those vital conversations.
Why Hosting Speed Matters
When it comes to your business, hosting speed matters. Today’s internet customers expect quickly loading pages, smooth transitions between pages, and easy navigation. Much of this relies on the hosting speed offered by whomever you choose to associate your page with. (At BionicWP, we understand how important this is to your business!)
You may feel that your website’s products are the first impression you make, but you would be mistaken. The very first impression your website makes is based entirely on its loading speed. It improves user experiences, increases the potential for conversations, and satisfies loading expectations. This means a quick loading website can help you to retain customers, impress potential clients, and earn conversations that increase your traffic.
Over time, continued slow website speeds will discourage even your most steadfast customers from returning. Slow speeds are often associated with businesses that are meeting professional expectations. This can prevent customers from referring your site to other potential clients, stop established websites from providing backlinks to your content, and inhibit individuals from signing up for your newsletter! When this type of issue arises, it can also lead to a decrease in your Google rank. After all, Google has already announced to the world that it wants to make the whole internet faster, simple to use, and easy to access. If nothing else, complying with this goal can only help to increase your user-friendly approach and enhance Google’s overall goal.
