What We Learned
Performance testing

In the lead up to launch, we noticed the site underperforming our expectations in a few key speed tests. Once we identified the problem—a caching issue—we were able to recompress certain assets and improve load times for the areas in question. Then we performed the same tests once the site was in its final hosting environment to make sure it stayed snappy.

So far all signs are pointing to increased visitor engagement and an improved user experience. Anecdotal responses are overwhelming positive, but as we collect more data, we’ll be able to tell which changes are having the most profound impact on their ultimate goal: getting new sign ups. Launching a new site should have an immediate positive effect, but it takes ongoing testing and optimization to get the most out of it.
