If you’ve been untouched up to this point consider yourself extremely lucky.  Your hosting company is most likely above average when it comes to blocking specific script injections, known vulnerabilities and has a backup strategy.…

Mastering Customer Intent: Two Parts

by @ Aztek Blog

Every great marketer wants to be able to provide answers and information to an ideal customer in the very moment that customer has a need. These marketers would use digital marketing so effectively, it would sometimes create a need for the customer. How do you, as a business owner or a chief marketing officer, ensure your company is going to be able to give the customer what they need when they need it? You first must understand the visitor's true intent.

Part One: Use Data to Understand Customer Intent

You may have created personas based on demographics rather than intent. For example, if I manufacture and sell boutique baby products, I might target women who are between the ages of 25-40, have at least one child in the house, and have a median household income of $80,000. This sounds fine and dandy, except for the fact that 40 percent of all baby product purchasers are people who don't even have a child in their household (think gift-buying grandparents, friends, etc.). By taking a narrow view approach and targeting by demographic you've effectively alienated 40 percent of your target market! Here are a few other stats that may have you rethinking your approach:

  • 56 percent of sporting goods searchers on mobile are female
  • 45 percent of home improvement searchers on mobile are female
  • 68 percent of skin and body acre influencers, in the last month, are men

 

How do you take a deep dive into the intent of your customers? How can your company be there for them in those moments of need? First, look at who is visiting your site as it stands and ask yourself the following questions:

  • What search terms are visitors using?
  • Do you have relevant content that is answering questions they are asking?
  • What actions are new visitors taking on your site?
  • What pages do they spend the time on? What pages do they bounce from?

Do more research on your market and who the buyers are. There very well could be more than one intent and it's important to have content that appeals to those different customers. In my baby products example, blog content for new moms would be great for those in our original demographic. A gift guide would be valuable for people who don't have a child in the home, but are buying for a friend or sister who is expecting.

Part Two: Consider the Buying Cycle

It is important to cater content to customers who are in different stages of the buying cycle. Create content for those who are just asking a question. Create a comparison page for those who are comparing your solution against others in your industry. And, create content that makes it easy for people to connect with you at the very moment they want to buy. Don’t ask your visitors to buy from your company if they are simply asking “what do I look for when switching providers?" Do write a blog post that outlines answers to their question. You may be thinking this sounds like Avinash Kaushik’s See, Think, Do Framework. It is.

The bottom line is to not alienate your audience. If you are seeing traffic to your site that indicates you have a different customer intent than you initially suspected, publish a small amount of content that appeals to them and see how it performs. Step back from your digital presence, look at the data, and form content strategies around customer intent—even if it is not what you initially expected.

How Much Does it Cost to Build a Website?

by @ Aztek Blog

It's what everyone wants to know. But you're not going to be happy with our answer: It depends.

There is a ton of variation in the industry, with website costs ranging from a free Weebly site to the estimated $2,142 million price tag for the healthcare.gov site. Because of this, sticker shock is a common occurrence between agencies and clients.

When you receive a quote for a new site, it's important to consider the factors that contribute to the bottom line. If your business is comparing quotes from a few agencies, think about the following six factors and how they could impact your project—and your business—along the way.

6 Factors That Impact The Cost of a Web Project

1. Expertise

This is "the big one." It's extremely important because it's the least tangible factor and it impacts every other item on this list. An agency has a plethora of knowledge at its disposal thanks to designers, developers, and digital marketers.

These experts stay on the cutting edge of their field, which helps them offer the best solutions for your business goals. Staying on top of industry trends and best practices means time spent researching and constantly learning. Aztek has been in business for over 20 years and has accumulated vast amounts of experience in working with clients on web design, development, and digital marketing projects. That kind of expertise isn't free.

2. Project Team

Most projects need (at least) a designer, a developer, a content strategist, and a technical SEO specialist. These folks collaborate both internally and with you to offer the best, customized solution. It takes time to meet, discuss, understand, plan, and implement a solution so that you get the best results.

3. Content

It's just some words, right? Churning out content can seem easy at first. People shoot off 140 characters on Twitter in seconds. But it can be difficult to understand the complexities that go into writing high-quality content for your target audience.

This is where a content strategist comes in. A content strategist seeks to understand the target audience and business goals. This is helpful to establish the website's organization, navigation, and content, which then goes into content creation. This also means researching and spending time to provide the best solution.

After strategy comes actual content creation. This alone is a very time-consuming task and one that can often be left to the last minute when it is on your plate. Having a copywriter take this on can be immensely helpful. They will work with you to make sure the overall voice and tone is coming through, but they will carry the actual bulk of the work (and help keep you on track with your timeline).

4. Hosting

There are a lot of companies that offer hosting—specifically, cheap hosting. Hosting with the same agency who built your website has a lot of benefits. If there is ever an issue with the server (hopefully never), you and your familiar agency team can work to resolve the issue. When you use one of the cheap hosting providers, you can spend valuable days chasing down the appropriate support personnel and still never get a satisfactory resolution, causing you to lose potential leads. When the site needs updates, it is much easier if the agency has access to the source code, and are working in their own development and production environments.

5. Post Project/Launch Support

Making the website easy to edit should be a priority for digital agencies. This gives you the ability to update content and images, while the agency focuses on more complex design and development tasks. Think about if you have questions after the project, do you know who to call? And will a real person who knows about your project answer the phone?

Unfortunately, no CMS bestows magic powers that turn a novice user into a veteran web developer or designer. We take time to train our clients on the content management system (CMS) for their new site, as well as answer any questions along they way. But, there will be times an update or new feature for your website requires the expertise of the agency project team, and that will likely require a new statement of work.

6. Digital Marketing

Technically, this one could happen while the project is in process and after the project is complete. But especially once your project is done, you'll want to shout it to the world (and the Google bots of course).

Often clients don't have the time or the expertise to do this part of the project themselves. Maintaining your digital presence and ensuring your new site is meeting business goals is a full-time job-- one that requires multiple people to ensure it's working properly.

Digital marketing teams can include a combination of search engine optimization (SEO), pay-per-click (PPC), marketing automation, on-going content development, and analytics reporting experts. With that in mind, it may make sense to partner with an agency to make sure your business is getting the most out of your new website.

We hope this helps to clarify some of the factors that go into figuring out the cost of the project, and give more insight into why numbers vary from company to company.

2017 StirTrek Roundup

by @ Aztek Blog

Our team goes to StirTrek every year because it's a great conference. One big change this year was the location. In years past, StirTrek was held in a movie theater, which was awesome. But it seems the success of the conference led to them outgrowing that venue and moving to OSU's Schottenstein Center. The move makes sense because it is bigger, but as an attendee, the new venue offered only cramped seating and challenging acoustics; each session was divided only by a tall curtain and you could hear the sessions on the left and right of you. This was not a user experience improvement. But hey, just like in websites, it's the content that really matters...right?

So what new knowledge and ideas did our team bring back with them this year? Check our session summaries below.

Why your agile isn't

Travis Alexander

We transitioned to Agile a few years ago, there is always more to learn and improve on, so I tend to gravitate to these types of talks, even if I only pick up one or two new things, and this session had a few great bullet points. In no particular order:

  • Epics are just to group stories that span across sprints
  • Use sub-tasks like a checklist for your user story
  • How do you keep story points from being a time estimate (and age-old agile debate)? Establish a baseline of shared understanding for something that everybody has done, such as adding content to a modal. That's a "two". Now, all of a sudden, everyone has a common point of reference to estimate the point estimates from.

No Estimates, or Lean Estimates, That is the Question

Chris McClellan

It was ironic that this session followed the "Why Your Agile Isn't" (in the exact same room no less) because some of the ideas seemed to directly contradict the notes I took from the previous speaker. In this talk, Chris explored the pros and cons of not giving estimates at all, or finding a compromise and using something called "Lean Estimates". Lean Estimates seemed to be a more reasonable solution where estimates are not given until the are needed (JIT), and are not debated endlessly by petulant team members who are more concerned about being right than getting things done. Not that anyone has ever had that happen.

For a short time, I did not think there was any value in looking back at sprint work estimates. They are just estimates and estimates are never actual so why look back - keep moving forward. In presenting Lean Estimates, Chris really changed my way of thinking. He conveyed that using historical data can help get you quick estimates for forecasting the future. If we keep a snapshot of past done stories/items per sprint, we can use the count of those to estimate how much we think we can typically get done. When the squads are really gelling a common throughput trend will stand out. He started to see that Week 1 they got 13 cards done, then Week 2 12 cards were done, then 13 again, and then 10. This is extremely valuables to see, before even looking at the next sprint you can estimate we will get around 12 cards done.

More Better Code Quality

Jim Holmes

I always love to hear how developer teams work big and small. Jim walked us through a simple and typical development lifecycle from Idea through Building and finally to Production. He pointed out how and where you should be using collaboration to discuss quality considerations. One point he stressed in the building phase, was using the 3 Amigos. This can be a quick 5-minute discussion before the developer dives in where the developer, tester, and BA/Product Owner review the story with their different perspectives. This story kickoff should result in an agreement on what is needed to get it done correctly. As a developer when I see a story with good acceptance criteria I just want to dive in knock it out and throw it over to QA but there are so many things wrong with that will end up costing more time in the end.

Fetch and Service Workers - Revolutionizing Web Requests

Jared Faris

JavaScript conference talks are always tricky. Sometimes you can sit through 45 minutes of something that is only implemented in 1 browser or something that is demoed so generally that you have no clue how to use it in something you are working on. But this is never the case with Jared Faris, he has a tremendous way of presenting through real demos. I would recommend seeing him present whenever possible. In this session he first reviewed the Fetch API, which he wrote on back in November of 2016. At Aztek, we've used the Javascript library Q to flatten our callback pyramids with promises and get implicit error propagation. The Fetch API is something useable today with or without a polyfill to get that generic asynchronous Request and Response for data to and from the server. Seriously, start using it today.

The latter half he showed off the arrival of the less implemented Service Workers. Service Workers will give use developers really easy and powerful ways to handle caching, offline and even push notification going forward. I see a lot of benefits in these when they get settled and adopted and will probably start digging in by using them to inject additional calls for telemetry in our applications.

Make Your Team More Effective From Within

Jason Blackhurst

In this very concise talk, Jason broke down the results from Google's Project Aristotle, which explored what makes a project team successful. The results? There are basically five things that your team needs to perform at their best (and of those five things, really only three matter). They are:

  • Psychological safety
  • Dependability
  • Structure and clarity
  • Meaning of work
  • Impact of work

If you've got those things covered, you're gonna have a good team. The problem, of course, is that doing those things well is hard.

The UX of Voice

Tim Rayburn

Voice/chat as a UI continues to gain momentum and if you believe Tim Rayburn, this is the year Voice is poised to explode the way mobile did a few years ago. So the key takeaway here was to get into voice now, so you can be part of the early adopter crowd. This goes for designers, developers, and brands alike. After that big message, Tim's talk focuses mostly on Amazon's Alexa platform.

A few smaller, more tactical takeaways:

  • Keep answers short (two items), ask user if they would like more
  • Interrupting skills (Skills are what Amazon calls an application for Alexa) loses the entire session
  • Use SSML for phonetic spelling

We recently bought an Alexa for Aztek, and are looking forward to hacking on it and experimenting with our own Alexa Skills.

Use Alexa to Learn Cloud Serverless Skills

Wray Mills

In keeping with our new found interest in Alexa, we attended this talk right on the heels of the UX of Voice session. This session was way more technical. Wray took the audience on a tour of all the places and steps a developer needs to get familiar with to write their own Alexa Skill. He covered what accounts, what services, what technologies, etc. you need to get started developing your own Skill. The bad news for me was some of it was way over my head (what do you want, I'm a designer), but the good news it, it wasn't so over my head that I was intimidated. Wray assured us that even a newbie could have their first Alexa Skill up in a weekend.

And just in case you thought Alexa was only for playing music, check out what he did with his.

Girl Develop It

(Stir Trek Spaces)

This was one of the unofficial sessions for people who wanted to present a topic but maybe didn't have a full 45-minute talk ready to go. I have twin daughters who might be interested in what Daddy does for a living in a few years, so I wanted to find out what Girl Develop It was all about. From their website: "Girl Develop It is a nonprofit organization that exists to provide affordable and judgment-free opportunities for women interested in learning web and software development. Through in-person classes and community support, Girl Develop It helps women of diverse backgrounds achieve their technology goals and build confidence in their careers and their everyday lives."

Two representatives from the Dayton and Columbus chapters talked to us about the various events they sponsor and how their classes work. I also learned that next to California, Ohio has the largest number of GDI chapters. Surprisingly, however, there is no Cleveland chapter. Right then and there I submitted an interest form to let them know that I thought Cleveland could benefit from its own chapter. Go to https://www.girldevelopit.com/ to learn more about this great organization.

Planning for Accessibility

Jeff McWherter

Accessibility is something all web developers should strive towards. As Jeff pointed out in his talk, studies show that as much as 20% of the population has a disability, and we should try to accommodate as many of them as we possibly can. There are a lot of confusing and sometimes conflicting standards out there, and Jeff did his best to make sense of them for us. A lot of this I already knew, but it's always good to hear this stuff from someone who knows more than you because there's always something new to learn.

  • WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) and Section 508 are the gold standards for accessibility, but compliance with one does not necessarily mean you automatically meet compliance with the other
  • WCAG has three levels of compliance - A, AA, and AAA. Level A rules are generally easy to meet and should not impact the appearance of the page much, if at all. AAA, on the other hand, can be pretty difficult to achieve and may significantly impact content or appearance of the page.
  • NoCoffee is a Chrome extension that can simulate a number of vision disabilities, including low acuity, contrast sensitivity, colorblindness, and visual obstructions like glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy
  • Color Safe (http://colorsafe.co/) is a website that helps you create attractive color palettes that adhere to accessibility guidelines for text and background contrast ratios

Event-Driven UX in the Real World with Angular 2 and Socket.io

Michael Meadows

Introduction to Functional Reactive Programming

Corinna Cohn

I really want to learn more about Angular, React, and functional programming. Unfortunately, two 45-minute sessions at a conference like this is not the best way for me to learn much. These talks both went pretty much over my head. I will have to do much more of my own homework before this sinks in.

Building An Audio Microscope: Freezing and Exploring a Moment of Sound with PureData

Krista Campbell

I wanted to attend something "cool" for the last session, regardless of its applicability to web development, and Krista's talk fit the bill. Using an open-source programming language called PureData, created for processing and manipulating audio and video data, Krista created an application she calls and "audio microscope". Normally, when you slow down or speed up a sound clip, the pitch is lowered or raised in direct proportion to the speed change, and if you pause the sound, it just stops. Unlike video, where you see a still clip when the video is paused, sound requires motion to work, so if you stop the motion, there is no sound. Krista's app overcomes these limitations (with a lot of complicated math that I did not understand, but that's ok, because it's cool). She can load a sound clip, speed it up or slow it down without changing the pitch at all (sing "Happy Birthday" to yourself REALLY slowly but stay in the right key), and she can even "pause" the sound for an indefinite period of time and it will continue to play that small sample of sound (start singing "Happy Birthday" to yourself but just hold "Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" as long as you possibly can). It's difficult to describe her talk accurately in words, but it was pretty neat.

Until next year...

As always, another great year at StirTrek. As an added bonus, our own Keith Rowe won a brand new XBOX1 from one of the vendor raffles!

Content Resources Round Up: April

by @ Aztek Blog

The resources round up for April includes a podcast and two great articles. I love finding different mediums of ways to learn new things! Let's dive into my favorites from the last month!

Podcast: UnPodcast by Alison Kramer & Scott Stratten

What We Liked: I had the opportunity to attend Content Marketing World 2016, and while I was there I signed up to get the updated release of Scott Stratten and Alison Kramer's book, UnMarketing. Fast forward to April and a lovely package showed up at the office (it really made my day!) containing the book and an awesome pair of socks, all thanks to Emma marketing! This prompted me to start listening, from the beginning, to Alison and Scott's UnPodcast. Even though the older episodes are from a couple years ago, the overall messages about marketing still apply. Alison and Scott do a wonderful job of using real life examples of marketing wins and fails to illustrate larger ideas and practices that companies should know.

Favorite Idea: "Passion plus knowledge equals profit" episode 29

Incorporating The Value: A lot of what Alison and Scott talk about can be applied to anyone with a company. A large theme in the podcasts is making sure that the product you have is a great one, so that there are less issues to deal with.

They also talk about how having a passion for your business and product results in better sales (see above quote). I have seen this first hand with our own clients who really love their business. This passion tends to comes through when we have content meetings where we ask clients to talk us through their business and how they see their users. Clients who get excited about their business make me get just as excited about working with them.

Article: 6 Underused Content Marketing Strategies That Get Results by Sam Thomas Davies

What We Liked: The way the article is broken down into easy-to-digest tips with visual examples is great. And I really agree with all of these suggestions! Davies does a great job of explaining each tactic and why it is beneficial to use. Content is often the first thing to get overlooked, so reminding people that content doesn't have to be a big daunting task helps make it more manageable. Not to mention that using strategies that many people may overlook gives a bit of an advantage.

Favorite Quote: "It’s not always necessary to create new content; often, you just need to improve what existing content you have."

Incorporating The Value: Clients often feel overwhelmed by content. It's important to show them that there are ways we can use their existing content to boost marketing and get the most bang for their buck. The article reviews tactics like repurposing popular content, auditing content, and relaunching/updating old content, all things Aztek recommends to our clients on a daily basis.

Article: How to Do a Content Audit [Updated for 2017] by Everett Sizemore

What We Liked: This article did a really great job of walking through the steps of an audit with a focus on SEO. It also highlighted a lot of the tools I like to use in an audit, such as Screaming Frog, Google Analytics, and Excel.

Favorite Idea: Structuring the audit to have five distinct columns: URL, Title, Action, Details, and Page Type.

Incorporating The Value: At Aztek, I often do audits of our clients' sites, so it's always interesting to see how other people in the Content Strategy field approach this task. I really liked seeing things like which content should be ranking for which keywords, and undiscovered content marketing opportunities called out as a purpose of an audit. These are ideas that we talk to clients about and present in different ways, but that could be incorporated into audit findings as well.

I really enjoyed all of these resources, I hope you did too! Let us know what you thought or if you have any additional recommendations. You can tweet us at @aztekweb.

A Primer on Site Speed and Performance

by @ Aztek Blog

Overview

Site speed (performance) should be treated as reverently as the content, design, functionality, and SEO considerations of the website. Everybody wants their site to load fast, but often lose sight of this during the site's development when big images or video, features, and functionality seem to drive most decisions at the expense of page speed. When this happens, the end result is a slow-loading site that turns users away before they even see those features.

Instead, clients and agencies should agree on a performance budget (a size/time limit in which they believe the site should load within) to make decisions about what features and assets should be cut or included.

Key Lessons

Page speed affects SEO

Google has flat out said that page speed is a signal in their ranking algorithm. Why? Because Google knows that users are impatient, so if all other factors between two ranked sites were equal, the faster loading experience should win.

https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2010/04/using-site-speed-in-web-search-ranking.html

Page speed affects UX and therefore sales/conversions

An extension of Google's logic (above), the faster a page loads, the more likely a user is to interact with it. In fact, speed is probably more important than design. The cliche' "wow-factor" design often sought by clients may come at the expense of speed.

Consider the evidence:

Users exposed to a 200 ms delay since the beginning of the experiment did 0.22% fewer searches during the first three weeks, but 0.36% fewer searches during the second three weeks. Similarly, users exposed to a 400 ms delay since the beginning of the experiment did 0.44% fewer searches during the first three weeks, but 0.76% fewer searches during the second three weeks. Even if the page returns to the faster state, users who saw the longer delay take time to return to their previous usage level.

Page views drop off as page load times increase.

A corresponding increase in page load times from 400 milliseconds to 900 milliseconds. This resulted in a 25% dropoff in first result page searches. Whereas, a 5 second speed up (from ~7 seconds to ~2 seconds). This resulted in a 25% increase in page views, a 7-12% increase in revenue, and a 50% reduction in hardware. Google has calculated that by slowing its search results by just four tenths of a second they could lose 8 million searches per day.

A slow page costs your users real money

Another often overlooked aspect is the cost to users. Despite the perception that everyone has an unlimited data plan, the reality is much different. Most mobile plans still have caps and limits. Every time a user requests your unnecessarily bloated website, you are costing them a chunk of their monthly data allowance. If you want to see how much, try this website: https://whatdoesmysitecost.com/

You can 'trick' your site into feeling faster than it actually is.

There are techniques to make a page feel faster than it actually is. By optimizing the part of the screen that the user sees first, you can defer loading other assets until they are ready to be seen. But this is not an excuse to have a bloated, overweight page! Just like exercise, going jogging in the morning doesn't mean you can gorge yourself on pizza and soda at night.

  • Optimize Start Render Time - The time it takes for users to start seeing the page render visually. It is possible to make sure that the elements the user will see first (before scrolling) load first and they don't just see an empty page.
  • Lazy load all the things! - A technique to defer loading of page assets until the user scrolls to the point of the page where they will actually see them. If they never scroll, they are never loaded.
  • Progressive images - The image starts a low-quality, blurry version and gets clearer as image loads fully. But it holds the place of the layout, and the user sees there is something happening; which helps reduce abandonment rates.

Set a performance budget (and stick to it)

Clients should work with their web design agency to establish a performance budget. How fast should the site load? Five seconds? Four? Three? Two? This gives everyone a good starting point. For what it's worth, Forrester Consulting found that users expect your site to load in under two seconds. That may not be possible, but it's something you should be aware of.

What number should I use for my website performance goals?

20%. That's the number it takes for your users to notice a difference. You site needs to be 20% faster than it was before. Or, pick a time in which you want your site to load. Let's start with 2 seconds. That gives us this hypothetical breakdown:

  • HTML 5% 5k
  • CSS 15% 60kb
  • FONTS 15% 60kb
  • JAVASCRIPT 15% 60kb
  • IMAGES/VIDEO 50% 250kb

In the future, as you want to add things to your site and pages, you should keep that performance budget in in front of you as ask if the new feature fits within the budget. If not, can something else be removed to make room?

Issues Impacting Site Load Speed

Images - Does this GIF make me look fat?

Once you take over management of your CMS, continue to optimize images! If you're in charge of managing the content of your website, you're going to have to educate yourself on how to use it. That includes understanding some basics about the use of graphics and images on the Web. And since we're talking specifically about performance today, we're worried about image size and quality.

TL;DR: You need to keep image sizes in check or your site is going to balloon up and load slowly in no time. If you don't want to worry about this, ask you web developer to implement a Content Delivery Network (CDN) like Cloudinary that will serve automatically optimized images on your site with you having to do anything.

Plugins and Third-party add-ons add up

Chat with one of our representatives now! Signup for our newsletter! Share this page on social media! You know exactly what I'm talking about. These features seem to be on every site you visit. And they add tons of weight to a page. And the truth is, most users hate them, or at the very least ignore them. So consider their impact on your speed (and users) before adding them to your site.

Fonts. Cool it on the weights and variations.

As a designer, I was really excited when webfonts finally came of age (I've be doing this since back when you have to choose from Arial, Verdana, and Times New Roman). And brands can be picky about the typefaces they have to use for their identities. But it's easy to get carried away and load up so many fonts that your page speed suffers. Remember, even if you only use one "font", every weight and variation counts against your total performance budget. So ask yourself do you really need to use five different weights, each with a regular, bold, and italic variation?

Too many requests? Try bundling and using sprites, or maybe HTTP2

Each time your webpage needs to load an asset (a stylesheet, a piece of JavaScript, an image, etc.) it has to ask a server to get it. And in regular ol' HTTP, it can only ask for one thing at a time. So if your page is asking for a lot of things, you have just created a long waiting line of things your users can see until each request has fired. The solution? Make less requests by using a technique called bundling (basically combines all your css and/or JavaScript files into one so the page can make fewer requests). Sprites, a similar concept but for images. Or if possible, HTTP2; which allows the page and server to make/serve simultaneous requests.

Server limitations. Your bargain hosting is costing you more than you think

You may actually just have a lousy webhost who put you on an old, under-powered shared machine with lots of other sites (all competing for server resources). The solution here is easy, upgrade your hosting, but be prepared to pay more for premium.

Page Speed Tool Results. They're yelling at me for external resources I don't control!

One frustrating aspect of page speed analysis tools is they will give you a lower "score" for external resources (such as tracking scripts) that you don't control. On one hand, this seems unfair because you don't control that asset (you're just calling it from their server), on the other, it probably is contributing to your site performance so they have to make you aware of it. If you absolutely have to keep a third-party script, just factor it into your performance budget and you can still have a fast site experience for users.

Next Steps:

The speed of your website matters to your users and translates to real money for both you and them. If you think you need help imp riving the performance of your site, contact your web developer right away.
