Work with the #1 rated site speed agency and improve the load time and speed of your website today
Our team of US-based website and site speed experts will improve your website load time and get top scores on GTmetrix and Google PageSpeed Insights!
Website and Plugin Setup
You’ll enjoy our proactive, collaborative and efficient support team. We’ll start with a meeting to go over how your site was set up, it’s purpose, and what the purpose of each plugin is.
Images are often one of the biggest issues slowing down websites. By properly optimizing your images, we can speed up your website significantly.
Caching is another fantastic way to speed up your website. Caching is keeping copies of your website stored in a temporary location where a computer can assess it more quickly.
Mobile First Optimization
Mobile websites are often far slower than their desktop counterparts. By working to optimize the mobile version of your site, the desktop version will be sped up as well.
Minify CSS, HTML & JS files
Your script (CSS, HTML & JS files) is another major thing that hampers the speed of your website. Our support team can optimize your script for you, giving you a faster website.
Database and Hosting Support
Not many people may think about it, but your hosting provider makes a big difference in how fast your website loads. Just going with the cheapest hosting plan will have a negative impact on your page load time.
Our Proven Site Speed Optimization Process
Our Preferred Support Tools
In order to ensure success for your website growth, we use the best, modern online tools when working with our support clients. Your website is in good hands!
Smartlook includes website heat maps, consumer insights, user session recordings and custom funnel reports. This allows us to dive deeper and better understand the behavior of your website visitors, so we can make strategic optimizations to increase your conversion rates.
Google Lighthouse is just one of the several tools we use to analyze your site speed and several other metrics, such as SEO, accessibility and overall performance.
Our experts are also certified in many other important online tools and platforms, like Google Analytics. We can track industry and market trends and make necessary adjustments to your strategy so you can land more customers and increase your online sales!
1. Setup and Management
Before we even start on speed optimization, we’ll meet with you to discuss the goals of your website and your current functionality. This will help us create a plan of action for your website.
- Support Discovery Call
- Website Backend Review
- Website Setup
- Website Plugin Updates
- Website Backups
2. Initial Site Speed Audit
Once we know the goals of your website and we’ve set up the backend, we’ll run a site speed audit to find where your major issues are. This lets us know which issues we need to tackle first. You’ll get a report of this audit with our plan to fix the issues.
- Lighthouse Analysis
- GTmetrixs Analysis
- Detailed Report
3. Hosting for Site Speed
Part of our speed optimization audits will indicate whether or not your hosting is causing problems. Our hosting is designed specifically for WordPress, transferring your site over to our servers could help increase your loading time. Optimizing the rest of your site isn’t very useful if your servers are slow.
- WordPress managed hosting
- Daily website backups
- On-going hosting support
4. Site Speed Content Optimization
If your servers aren’t slowing down your website, then your content is the culprit. Optimizing images and scripts are a crucial step in decreasing your load time. Perhaps you need a better theme or you simply need images with smaller file sizes. Whatever the issue is, we can take care of it.
- Image optimization
- Video optimization
5. Site Speed Plugins and Apps
If you have a WordPress website, you’re probably using a lot of plugins. Not all plugins are created equally, some will have little to no impact on your site speed, some will brick your website. We will go through all your plugins, get rid of what isn’t being used, and swap out slow plugins for faster ones.
- Update all plugins to the most recent version
- Remove unused plugins
- Swap out slow plugins
6. Technical Site Speed Optimization
How you embed outside scripts into your site will have a major impact on your site speed. This includes things such as Google tags, embedded Google maps, and more. Working through these more technical issues can take more time, but it’s worth the effort.
- Optimizing scripts from 3rd parties
- Connect to a CDN
7. Test, Review and Optimize for Speed
Site speed optimization is an ongoing effort. As new versions of themes, plugins, and PHP are updated, you’ll need to make sure you’re using the most recent versions. If you regularly upload new content to your site, you’ll need to make sure it’s properly optimized, otherwise you’ll be decreasing your speed again over time.
- Regular site speed testing
- Ongoing optimization of new content
- Regular theme updates
- Regular plugin updates
- Regular PHP updates
- And more!

Big Red Jelly started out with the logo design. They made several revisions and worked with us so it’d be a smooth process. They helped with naming, color scheme, digital branding, and identity. That process gave us the confidence to move into website design and development.Jim SaundersGourmet Dumplings
They always provided consistent communication. We had never hired a service to perform these services before so we weren't sure what to expect but came out the back end pleased with the experience.Rollin SkinnerHampton Home Loans
I was not sure what direction I wanted to go with my branding. After asking me a number of questions, the team gave me guidance on options that would work great for me, my personality, and my company. Once we had that in place that is when the fun started! I had an incredible response as I engaged friends, family, and past clients on social media as I asked for their feedback and input. I have already referred people to Big Red Jelly and will continue to do so.Scott HeatonRealtor
They listened carefully to us and everything we had in mind, and translated that into a really solid messaging plan with lots of good ideas of their own. They have been a joy to work with!Kelley BirrellLedger Gurus
These folks are fantastic and excellent at what they do. They were able to create completely revamped branding for our rugby event. I loved what they did so much for our schools event, we hired them again to rebrand the largest youth rugby tournament in the US!Michael CresslerNational Schools 7s
These guys are excellent! I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting a quality product in an amazingly fast time at very reasonable prices.
