Image optimisation is key to having your website load fast. Slow images can result in you losing nearly 40% of all visitors.

70% of small businesses have no obvious Calls To Action (CTAs)

Calls to action (CTAs) or what you want website visitors to “do” such as simple enquiry forms and click to call buttons must be obvious.

Only 1% of visitors interact with slideshows or sliders 

Do you have a large slideshow or slider on your website? Less than 1% of visitors interact with them, so it’s probably doing little to convert traffic. They are pointless and more than likely slowing down your page load speed.
