3 Ways to Instantly Speed Up Your WordPress Website

We covered this topic extensively in episode 22. That episode is great for a list of all the ways that you can improve the speed on your website. For this episode, we will give you 3 ways that you can instantly speed up your WordPress website today.

  1. Compress images 01:01
    • This is one of the first mistakes that new web designers make. They take these fantastic images and then try to upload them to the website without compressing them.
    • Use a tool like Imagify or WP Smush to compress your images.

  3. Use a content delivery network 03:16
