I still haven't got my first sale (after 4 weeks) but I have still hope. I tried to fix my website design etc. (adding live chat, blog,...) but now is my loading speed really really slow. See attachement. What are the soultions? I don't know a lot about coding. Should I try to fix it myself or should I hire someone from fiverr to do it for me? I have a lot of apps dowloaded something like 35. (I don't us most of it) Could this have a effect on the speed?
my website www.homevioo.com.
Hope to hear some responses.
mobilel is 10

I've had clients with a score of 8 that have very healthy sales, I'm a developer not a sales person, but the point is you can still have a successful shop despite being slow.
A big factor on how speed affects your bounce rate is where your clients are coming from, Americans will generally have faster internet then Indians for instance, so if your audience is primarily american, a slow site won't be a huge deal killer.
You're site doesn't have Field Data yet, PageSpeed Insights generates this data based off your actual user's different loading time, and it gives a sense of how users experience different loading metrics. I've had clients where their score is abysmal, but most of their clients load the site rather quickly, because they only have american clients.
That being said, if you want to increase your score, you want to get rid of EVERY app you aren't using.
Consider also removing apps you are using, but you feel aren't generating conversions. Since you aren't getting any sales, I'd recommend you just get rid of every app that isn't essential, then as you start getting sales, add apps one at a time and see how they improve conversions.
Keep in mind when deleting apps, some apps will not automatically delete their code, so you'll need to go into the code and remove the unused code that is still being parsed by the browser, you'll probably want to hire a developer for this.
Obviously, you've installed too many apps. If you remove unnecessary apps, the performance should be improved.
After you clear your apps, you can test again to see how it performs
Having only a few apps installed can cause a severe impact to page speed - we found that even installing a few apps caused some pages to slow down by as much as 6 seconds. Apps cause major issues - always use custom development when possible for your site features!
