Hi @BESTBUY4U,

 

This is Richard from PageFly - Shopify Page Builder app.

 

To increase the website speed, the 1st thing you may do is to optimize the images, you can do that by:

  • Compress the images: you can search for some free tools to try first, then upload them to Shopify
  • Pay attention to the file type: for example, JPEG offers the best overall balance between quality and file size, PNG images offer excellent quality and transparent elements, but the files are usually big. You can use JPEG for product images, background images and PNG for logos and decoratives

Then you can look for ‘lazy loading' - the technique that defers initialization of an object until the point at which it is needed. It sounds technical but page builders like us come with Lazy loading as a feature that you can enable with 1-click and no coding required.

 

Other things that can be done are:

  • Choose a theme that is optimized for page speed, you can test the speed of the theme demo first.
  • Remove unused apps in your store

 

These are simple ideas that you can do on your own, I hope they are helpful!

 

Richard.

Hello @BESTBUY4U,


Greetings! I am Gina from the flareAI app - free sales machine.


Improving the speed of your Shopify store can lead to a better user experience, higher conversion rates, and improved search engine rankings.


Here are some tips to help you increase your store's speed:


1. Optimize your images
Large, high-resolution images can significantly slow down your store's loading time. Use compression tools like TinyPNG to reduce the file size of your images without compromising on quality.

2. Use a fast, lightweight theme
Choose a theme that is optimized for speed and performance. Look for a theme that has a minimal design and only includes the features you need.

3. Minimize your code
Use tools like Gzip compression to reduce the size of your HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files. You can also remove any unnecessary code from your site to further improve its speed.

4. Reduce the number of apps you use
Apps can add extra code to your site, which can slow it down. Only use the apps that are essential to your store's functionality.

5. Optimize your store for mobile
More and more people are browsing the web on their mobile devices, so it's important to ensure that your store is optimized for mobile. Use Google's Mobile-Friendly Test tool to check how mobile-friendly your site is and make any necessary changes.

6. Monitor your site's speed
Use tools like Google PageSpeed Insights to regularly monitor your site's speed and make any necessary adjustments.


By following these tips, you can significantly improve the speed and performance of your Shopify store, which can lead to a better user experience and increased sales.


Let me know if you have any questions.
