4 easy tips to speed up your WordPress site

Google made it official that page speed has a direct effect on ranking so here are 4 tips to speed up your WordPress site. Start off by using a good compression tool to optimize all your images – I like to use https://compressor.io/compress. If you have lots of images on your site already https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-smushit/ is quite a good option. Once done install the 3 plugins listed below to supercharge your site.

Speed up WordPress Plugins

These are 3 plugins that really work well together to speed up your site.

1.  https://wordpress.org/plugins/fast-velocity-minify/ Works out of the box.
2.  https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-super-cache/ There are plenty of guides online how to configure it.
3.  https://wordpress.org/plugins/a3-lazy-load/ Works out of the box.

How much does a website cost?

A bespoke website with a custom theme built on a CMS platform like WordPress will generally start from £2000.

A bespoke eCommerce store with a custom theme will generally start from £3,500.

These prices are guidelines and will ultimately depend on the brief and work involved. For example, if a simple holding site was required it would be charged at our hourly rate.
