The last thing your potential customers want is a slow, laggy and unresponsive buying experience when visiting your mobile site. It is no surprise that 77% of mobile users are more likely to purchase from mobile sites that allow quick purchases and offer ease of navigation.

Improving the page loading speed is the best place to start when looking to optimise your user experience, given studies suggest that 40% of users abandon a site if it does not load within three seconds. It might not sound like much, but just a few milliseconds too slow could result in lost revenue.
