Webinar: How Fast is Fast Enough?

Webinar: How Fast is Fast Enough?

Do you know when your website's speed starts to impact your customers' behaviour?

The speed of your site affects how your visitors behave: how many pages they view, how much they spend or even whether they convert.

Join two of the world's leading web performance experts, Andy Davies and Simon Hearne, as they discuss what you should consider when measuring your site's speed and how to determine when speed is a problem.

You'll leave this webinar with a good understanding of why speed matters, what good performance looks like and how it impacts on your business.
