Video Transcript:

Hi, this is Sean with Gradicle. In this video, I want to show you why it’s important to not only have a professional create your website, but a professional to manage a Website.

I had a prospective customer reach out to me yesterday, and we’re kind of running a report on the Website that a couple of different issues. And this really stood out to me was very surprising. Typically, Websites about two to three megabytes, you know, depending on how many images they have and things like that. But this Website is currently 30 megabytes. And so, you know, it’s a good 10 times what you’re supposed to have or even more. And so the server response time is over three seconds. But when someone types in the website, it takes over 20 seconds for the entire Website to load. So this is horrible, bad, bad, bad. But they have no idea. So someone uploaded, you know, whoever they had created the Website, I’m sure, uncles, brothers, cousin or something, they had someone actually upload all the original full-size resolution images on the Website. And they’ve got a slider. They’ve got images all over the place. And so some of these images are one of them. The main one, I think, is 11 megabytes.

So really, it’s pretty crazy. But this is a good example of why you want a professional to create your website and manage your website, because in Google’s eyes when they look for this website or scan this website. They’re not going to rank it at all because it’s way too slow. Not only on a desktop computer but also on a phone on a cellular network. And we have our 3G connection would take a year to load this Website. Not really, but I would take a very long time. And so in that case, when someone looks up what this business does in their area if they don’t know the exact business name, I mean, you’re just not going to see it on Google is just not going to happen. So please, please have a professional manager Website doesn’t have to be asked, but somebody that knows what they’re doing can look at your Website.

And if you do want us to review your Website and make sure this kind of stuff isn’t going on and about the other 35 other touchpoints we do on the Web site. I’d be glad to help you so you can give us a call 360-450-3711. You can talk. You can text, too. Or just send an email and you can do that too.
