Shopify Speed

In this day and age, it’s never been more important to have an online shopfront so you can sell your products to the world. With the rise of online shopping, you can instantly grow your revenue and increase sales by having an online store.

Shopify is currently one of the most popular Ecommerce platforms, and with good reason. Whether you use Shopify or Shopify Plus to run your online store, this will automate your sales and make running your business even easier than before. But it’s no good if your site is slow to load, as you’ll lose your customers in a heartbeat. If your site takes longer than three seconds to load, 40% of your website traffic is instantly gone and you’ll lose your conversions.

That’s where we come in. Here at Kia Ora Digital, we are your Shopify speed optimisation experts in New Zealand when it comes to how to increase your Shopify website speed. Not only will you retain your customers, but you’ll take your business to new heights.


How to Speed up your Shopify Store?

If you’re wondering how to increase your Shopify website speed, you’ve come to the right place. Here at Kia Ora, we have the experience and know-how to transform the way you do business and speed up your Shopify site. It’s time to hit the ground running and never look back.

There are a number of things that could be slowing your website down, like having certain themes and templates installed, banners with images that haven’t been optimised for the web, and so on. These can, in turn, deter potential customers – just like in a brick-and-mortar store: no-one likes to waste time in a queue, even if it’s for a good thing.

With our comprehensive range of Shopify SEO services, we’ll tailor an innovative strategy to suit the needs of your business.

Get Started with Speed Ops

When it comes to performing a speed optimisation, we look at things such as:

  • Selecting a Shopify theme or template that’s quick to load, but attractive and user-friendly for your customers
  • Compressing your product images, assets and file sizes
  • Identifying unnecessary apps, plug-ins and features that are slowing your website down
  • Optimising your Core Web Vitals SEO (more on that below)
  • Making sure your Shopify site ranks well on Google so you continue to bring in new customers and generate sales.

Speed Optimisation is all part of the service here at Kia Ora. Increase your Shopify speed, performance and search traffic and reach new horizons today.

Common Speed Optimisation FAQ's

What is Core Web Vitals and Why is it Important?

Core Web Vitals play an important part in determining your Shopify store’s search ranking online. These are a series of performance metrics that Google deems important to your customer’s online shopping experience.

There are Three Core Web Vitals for Google:

  • How long it takes for your website to load
  • How quickly your site responds to user interactions
  • Your website’s visual stability – does it shift around as it loads?

These are all key indicators of how easy it is for customers to shop at your site and whether they’ll have a positive user experience. Google also takes other factors into consideration, such as whether your site is mobile-friendly and safe and secure to browse. It then uses this information to determine your overall search ranking, with the ability to bring you more customers.

At Kia Ora, we keep track of these factors through effective data visualisation and analytics, so you can see all key performance indicators at a moment’s glance. By providing you with a visual representation of your site’s overall performance, along with emerging patterns and trends, you’ll be able to anticipate your customer’s needs. This allows you to stay one step ahead of the competition while reducing your bounce rate, increasing your web traffic and improving customer retention.

How Core Web Vitals SEO Can Increase Revenue?

When your website is fast to load, users will spend more time browsing through your store. If a page is slow to load, your customers can quickly become impatient and lose interest, therefore bouncing to another site. It’s therefore in your best interest to make sure you have a good Shopify page speed, as this can lead to greater sales and higher customer retention. A key part of that is improving your Core Web Vitals for Google. If you’re wondering how to improve your Shopify speed score, this is the quickest way to ensure overall site performance and efficiency.

At Kia Ora Digital, we’re dedicated to providing a positive user experience with quality web design and technical SEO services.
