The budget for this can be negotiated. I have a request for quote regarding improving performance for this website:
The Leadership Advisor
Load times are far too slow, but the owner does not want to lose any of the functionality given by the theme.
It will be of utmost importance that anyone working on this is
1) an expert in WordPress (the owner knows his way around a website);
2) Provider will need to be well-versed in caching, minification, and improving site performance;
3) Either provider will need to have great English communication skills, or you will need to be able to respond and facilitate communication pretty quickly.
We are looking for a really good quote, because he did not budget for this problem.
Please let me know how much you will charge to get this done quickly.
