Hey guys these are techniques that I’ve learned over the years that could help you increase your landing page speed for your affiliate marketing campaigns to help get your pages running as fast as possible.
We all know that speed for our landing pages is very important, especially with Pop or Push traffic.
Lightening Fast Landing Page Techniques are:
1. Use a Content Delivery Network:
You can increase your landing pages speed by using something called a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
A CDN allows you to send files (images, css, ect) closest to the user’s location, which can make your page load extremely faster depending on their location.
How to use a Content Delivery Network:
I tested a method an instructor taught to increase landing page speeds, and actually worked really well.
The method was to use a decent hosting platform like NameHero, but host as much of his content as you could on the CDN like CSS files, Java Script and Images. I tested it and was surprised how well it actually worked.
2. Compress your images
You can double your landing page speed just by easily compressing the images on your site for free.
If your images totaled 800kb on your page and you reduced the total image size to 121kb you could of just easily doubled your page speed with very little effort.
How to compress your images:
A 100% free website you can use to compress your images is called TinyPNG.
Just drag and drop your images to their site and it will automatically optimize your images.
3. Onerror events
“Onerror events” can be used to back up images by having a secondary URL load if the first URL doesn’t load correctly. This can be very important for image heavy landing pages.
You don’t want to leave an empty space on your landing page.
Adding this attribute to your images with a secondary image url can increase the chances your page’s images will load properly.
Here is an example of code for “onerror” event:
<img src="https://example.com/image-1" onerror="this.onerror=null; this.src='https://example.com/image-2'" />
4. HTML Compression & Minifier

5. Remove unnecessary scripts for WordPress:
If you are using WordPress ripping your own pages allows you to remove unnecessary scripts. These scripts (java, css, ect) are added when you have too many WordPress plugins and can slow your landing page speed down.
Once you have a proven WordPress page that’s working this is the entire process I’ve used that could help you increase your page speed even further.
