Marketers and business owners typically consider web performance as a pure technical concern. They didn’t have visibility into it and didn’t have the capability to make a difference. Nowadays, with the average user bouncing away from your website at about 3 seconds and site speed being a search ranking factor; speed is becoming a user experience problem and a business problem. More importantly, the emergence of Web Performance Optimization services has made it easy for business owners and marketers to have both the visibility and the power to make changes.

In this session you’ll learn about the business impact of making websites faster, hear about some case studies, and learn what you can do to make your website fast without having to beg your technical teams for attention.

This session is sponsored by Yottaa, Inc.
