Performance with DesignKarma

DesignKarma is a small but mighty web agency based in Manchester.

Nobody likes waiting for web pages to load. That's why at DesignKarma we build our sites with performance in mind, so our pages are blazing fast.

Studies have shown that 25% of visitors will abandon a website if it takes more than 4 seconds to load*. And that's just desktop users. It’s important to also optimize your mobile page speeds, because it’s still the preferred method of browsing the web – mobile minutes accounted for 77% of online time in the US in 2019*.

Performance is a key component of SEO

It's not just humans that prefer high performance websites and web apps, but search engines too. Think about it, search engines like Google succeed because they provide users with quality results for their searches. That's quality content, but also speedy pages with low bounce rates.

So performance matters to users and search engines, and has real-world impact on revenue.
