Picture this! You try to hire a Shopify speed optimization agency, so you go on Google and search "best Shopify site speed optimization agency" or "leading Shopify site speed optimization agency." At this point, you'll find numerous agencies in your search results, which brings up the question of how do you know which one to hire.

There's only one obvious choice; EcomExperts, but rather than try to convince you on why you should hire us using fancy techy words and fluff, we'll simply explain what we do and why we are better than others in simple terms. This time you're the judge, and you get to decide whether we're the right agency for you from reading this eye-opening piece. 

Before you decide, you must understand what site speed optimization is and what to look out for in an agency. 

What is Shopify Site Speed Optimization? 

To answer this, it's speeding up your Shopify store. A better answer would be that Shopify site speed optimization means improving how fast your page loads by removing obstacles that may hinder user experience.

Let's get to the facts; a fast loading store does wonders for conversions and sales. So much so that Google recommends that eCommerce stores load in under 4 seconds; anything higher results in a 40% increase in bounce rates. What this means is that the slower your store loads, the more customers scroll away.

This might sound insane, but nonetheless true. Customers choose to shop online to avoid long waiting lines often found in offline shops. You can only imagine the disappointment they feel when they try to check out an item, but the store takes forever to load. 

Why Should I Optimize My Shopify Site Speed? 

The benefits of optimizing your Shopify site speed are numerous. For starters, in its new Core Web Vitals update, Google considers site speed the determining factor for search engine ranking. 


Google now ranks faster sites first in search rankings. Regardless of how good your SEO content is, your site might rank below other sites much faster than yours. 

Asides from improving your Shopify’s store search rankings, site speed optimization also does a lot for conversion rates. A fast-loading store ensures that your customers remain satisfied while using your store, giving them nothing to complain about. In fact, they are even more excited when they can quickly find what they’re looking for in your store within minutes of searching. 

Speed optimization improves conversion rate and bounce rate

In addition to better conversions, you also enjoy lower bounce rates with an optimized Shopify store; more people equals more money. So you can be sure your store’s profits would rise high up into thousands, giving you almost a 100% increase in revenue. 

When should I optimize my Shopify Site Speed, and Who Should I Hire?

While your site needs to stay optimized throughout the year, a great time to optimize your Shopify site speed is just before the holidays or a major sale. You can expect much higher traffic at these times of the year, and your store needs to be ready to carry such traffic. 

Best time to optimize your store is before the sales holidays

Now that we have established the frequency for optimizing your site speed, the next step is to identify the best Shopify site speed optimization agency to do the work for you. Before you decide to hire an agency, consider two things: your budget and how much you earn from your store. 

In reality, the ends should justify the needs, so before you pay a Shopify agency, you need to know your store makes enough to justify that payment. After all of this, the next step is to find a great agency.
