Looking for someone who can meet with me each on a "as needed basis" to teach me how to speed up the loading times of my websites. I might have you do the work for me in the future, but for now I want you to guide, teach, mentor me through the process step by step via a remote connection I use at zoom.us
If you are hired I will share my zoom.us remote link with you to connect with you when we meet for our session.
There are 3 websites I want to get to load at 1.5 seconds or better. Right now the 3 Wordpress websites are loading quite slowly and there are a number of items to resolve as seen in the following gtmetrix reports below.
Please look at this report links below before applying to this job so you understand my situation.
OBJECTIVE: I don't want you to do the work for me. Instead, I want you to teach me how to do it. We will meet with me a couple hours each week to begin with or on a "as needed basis". We'll review the 3 Wordpress websites I have and you should come prepared to guide me through and tell me what to do every step along the way and I'll do the work myself and with you on the phone together while we collaborate together on my websites.
You should be a professional and have lots of experience improving the speed loading times of websites. You should clearly understand at minimum the following areas and be able to teach me what is best and demonstrate and show me how to complete these things when we meet for our coaching session(s) each week.
1- What hosting is better to use if we must change hosting? Is it possible to reach the 1.5 second loading time goal keeping my current host with Bluehost?
2- Do I need to change my Wordpress theme to reach faster loading times? If so what do you recommend?
3- you must know how to set up a CDN using Amazon or CloudFlare or MAX CDN. You should be able to teach me which of those services are best and most affordable for my situation and walk me through in setting them up for one website at a time that I share with you.
4- you must be a fluent English speaker.
5- you must be a patient person who loves to teach people like me what you know on all things website speed optimization.
6- the more you know about Wordpress the better. All of my websites are based upon Wordpress.
7- know how to resolve the issues reflected with poor ranking scores on GTmxtrix.com website
Before I hire you I will want to do a Skype phone interview with you first.
Lastly, please share up to 5 websites you improved the YSlow Grade and PageSpeed Score on. Show me the before and after results you produced. I will want to discuss those sites with you when I interview you.
