What is the Best Optimization Package for Your Site?

2018-08-03T20:46:47+00:00 August 3rd, 2018|About, Performance Optimization|

All of our Shopify optimization packages include a core analysis and site wide optimizations that will lower your page weight and improve your load speed.

It’s hard to put an exact monetary ROI on each service package (we’re working on this), but we do know from stats like this that page load speed affects your conversion rate and engagement, so theoretically the faster you can get your site loading, the more traffic, customers, and revenue will flow (and more customers equals more referrals which nets more customers).

Speed Boostr Packages

We provide multiple options to fit your budget. The higher the package, the deeper analysis and optimizations we’re able to perform.

Shopify Liquid Lesson: Auto Minifying CSS

2018-08-03T19:25:42+00:00 July 27th, 2018|Performance Optimization|

CSS and Minification

CSS (Cascade Styling Sheets) are files that control the style of your website by connecting style properties to html elements.

Like this:

In Shopify, you’ll find CSS files in your theme Assets folder.

What is minification?

CSS are text files. Minification compresses the text by removing extra characters like spaces and comments, and combining common styles.

This makes the file size smaller. When your files are lighter they transfer faster, which helps your site load faster.

The Challenge

You want to compress your files, but you also want them to be readable so you can edit and make updates.

All good Shopify has a technique that compresses your human readable CSS files into minified files on the server.

Best Reviews App for Shopify

Reviews are Key

They improve your conversion rate, SEO, trust factor, and give you quality feedback.

Let’s visualize a few scenarios:

  1. You land on a website with no reviews vs a website teeming with reviews. Which one feels more inviting?
  2. Search any product in Amazon. Usually the products with lots of reviews dominate the search results.
  3. Someone lands on your home page and sees actual customer reviews. Instant social proof.
  4. You search Google for “your product keywords”. Some results show reviews (rich snippets), and some don’t. Which would you click on?

Retargeting = Showing an ad to potential customers after they’ve visited your site. This works by using common tracking pixels, like the Facebook pixel. It’s also known as remarketing.

Customers usually need multiple touch points with your brand before making a purchase. Retargeting reminds them about your awesome products by showing up later in their Facebook feed.

This works like magic.
