Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Richard Wray

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is Donnie Strompf ...

Donnie Strompt discusses the importance of website speed and technical optimization with host Richard Gray. As the founder of Rapid SEO Host, Donnie helps clients optimize their websites for speed by managing hosting, plugins, security updates and more. He explains how sites loading in over 2 seconds can negatively impact users and business. In comparison to unmanaged $20 hosting, Donnie's services starting at $40 provide active maintenance to keep sites fast and secure. Speaking from experience optimizing many client sites, Donnie stresses the importance of prioritizing speed and avoiding false economies that undermine the online presence. The discussion emphasizes that the modern website is a business' storefront and must provide an engaging experience for visitors.

Key Moments:

  • Website speed is critical for user experience and conversion rates. Donnie recommends sites load within 2 seconds for optimal performance.
  • Many hosting providers offer cheap, unmanaged plans that do not actively maintain or optimize sites over time, leading to degraded performance.
  • Rapid SEO Host takes a proactive approach to hosting, actively managing, securing, and optimizing sites to ensure fast speeds and a seamless user experience.
  • Common issues they address include outdated software, unnecessary plugins, large image files, and more - all which can negatively impact site speed.
  • They offer various service tiers starting at $40/month that include hosting, maintenance, security updates and more.
  • Migrating sites typically takes 1-2 hours for a standard transfer, but complex sites with outdated code may take weeks.
  • Speed improvements are seen immediately upon migration to their optimized servers.
  • Donnie recommends against "cheaping out" on hosting and to invest in a solution that actively manages sites.
  • Asset Linkable is Donnie's new service focused on ethical link building through outreach and shareable assets.
  • The podcast emphasizes the importance of website speed and advocates for proactively managed hosting solutions.
