The Low Hanging Fruit of Web Performance

rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.

I kicked off a really poppin’ Twitter thread the other day:

What are the LOWEST hanging fruit of web performance? Nothing fancy, anyone can do, big impact.
Gzip. Optimize stuff. Reduce requests…
What are other big ones?

So, I decided to round up all the ideas (both my own and yours) around that in a post over on the Media Temple blog.

These are the things we dive into in that post:

Reduce Requests
Optimize Assets
Make sure you’re gzipping
Make sure you’re browser caching
Use a CDN
Lazy Load and Defer Loading of Things
Use responsive images (or at least use reasonable sizes)
Mind Your Fonts
Good Hosting / HTTP2 / PHP7
