Demystifying Website Performance and Its Impact on Revenue

Last month we presented a webinar with our partner Magento on website performance and its impact on revenue. Website performance is a crucial element of any website’s success and is particularly important for ecommerce sites who rely on the speed of their website to convert customers, encourage larger cart sizes, and ultimately gain more revenue.

Ecommerce platforms including Magento recognize the importance of speed and scalability to their merchants and have been making improvements so they are built for fast pages and reliable performance at any volume of traffic. Magento 2, released in 2015, was built with performance in mind and to integrate with Varnish Cache, one of the best caching solutions available, and many have predicted that ecommerce site speed will become more and more important in 2017.
