You have an online store, and it seems it is working pretty well. But how about your Shopify-based website? Are you sure you are getting the most out of it? To make sure that everything is running smoothly and you need to audit your online shop thoroughly. In this article, you’ll find the top seven reasons why you should do it right now.
A web hosting service that fits your e-store well is a cornerstone of a successful eCommerce business. There are many options available on the market, offering subscription plans for any budget. The Mementia team shares here how to find a perfect hosting match for your Magento-run web store.
How does your average Monday morning start? If you’re an e-store owner, it probably looks quite the same every time. You open your eyes and check your phone for emails to see if there are any urgent issues. Then you rush to make some coffee (because you’ll need a LOT of energy to process a bunch of tasks you have in the pipeline). You open your laptop and start analyzing all those website stats: bounce rate, session time, traffic, number of buyers, new purchases...
Now imagine this: one day you open your laptop and realize that your website... has crashed! You frantically run the numbers in your head to calculate the losses you will suffer while your e-store is down.
It goes without saying that having a speedy online store is essential to converting your visitors into buyers. Currently, an average website load time is 2-5 seconds. However, you should keep in mind that each second beyond 2 seconds might increase your bounce rate, which will inevitably affect your sales.
Recent reports have shown that 40% of internet users say they abandon the site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to open it. Thus, if you notice your Woocommerce site becomes slow or notice any changes in the bounce rate, the best decision, in this case, is to conduct a thorough website audit and find the core reason behind these issues.
“How to speed up my Drupal website?” is one of the most frequent questions we hear from our clients. A slow loading time can affect both your metrics and profits. A low loading speed can impact many vital indicators such as the SEO ranking, bounce rate and visitors’ stay time, to name just a few.
With more than 250,000 websites, Magento content management system (CMS) remains the most popular tool for running attractive interactive e-stores. High level of flexibility and a whole bunch of useful features are just a few benefits that Magento delivers to its users.
Of course, just like everything else, Magento is not perfect. Multiple extensions and a few other flaws often make Magento-based websites slow, which might significantly affect the bounce rate and performance of your online store. When the websites running on Magento 2 become too slow on the local host, most business owners rush into changing the hosting, which is not always helpful. That is why we recommend that you consider a couple of other options before you run away from your hosting service.
Have you ever had to wait in a long line to get something you really want? That's how your customers feel when browsing slow Magento websites. While some vendors might think that a performance audit is simply an attempt to increase development costs, others see it as a great opportunity to improve their customer's shopping experience.
On-time Magento audit can help you boost customer satisfaction and make your e-store significantly faster. If you experience any issues with the speed of your website or you suffer revenue losses, the best course of action is to define bottlenecks and solve all of the technical issues that affect them.
During the last 7 years at Mementia, I’ve spent a lot of time talking to people who weren’t happy with their developers. In fact, almost nobody is.
One interesting thing about the unhappy ones is the that they are not sure if that is the new normal, or if there is something actually wrong with their support, maintenance, or development partners.
There are some very simple questions you can ask your web development partners that will help you determine where you are in terms of quality and value for money.
