Why Site Load Time is Killing Your SEO

The next level of web experience is already expected. There isn’t enough patience in the world to wait for a site to load. In fact, 50% of web users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, according to surveys done by Gomez.com and Akamai. So if your site takes 3 seconds to load, chances are you will have higher bounce rate and lower conversion.

In short you need a new way of doing lead capture from your website. I have been researching this for the past few months and trialing various systems and I have found one that works well. As a result I am paying for it and have decided to promote it too.

Its called AgileCRM (Customer Relationship Manager), you can register your free account here.

Not only does it capture the lead into its own system direct from your website but it also emails a confirmation direct to your chosen email address!
