Series Description: Although the transition to ecommerce began long before COVID-19, the global pandemic has accelerated the process beyond what anyone could have predicted. Now is a great time to get into ecommerce, whether you haven’t started your business yet, or if you already have a brick and mortar store. We know that creating an ecommerce business can be confusing. That’s why Green Hat Web Solutions, The Commons on Champa, and Denver Economic Development & Opportunity have partnered to develop an entire series of live webinars about how to be successful selling online.

Title: How to Optimize Images for Fast Loading

Event Description: Did you know that one of the biggest culprits in slowing down websites is unoptimized images? Most of the time, it’s not code and it’s not the amount of plugins your website has. It’s big, fat images that change your speed score from good to bad. Having properly optimized images is critical for good user experience and it also helps with SEO.

In this webinar we will discuss important “must-do’s” for correct image and video preparation, including:

  • Image compression, better than what Photoshop alone can do;
  • When to use JPEGs vs PNGs vs GIFs;
  • Next-gen image formats including JPEG 2000, JPEG XR, and WebP;
  • The importance of responsive/SRCSET images;
  • Streaming video vs self-hosted video;
  • The benefit of CDNs like CloudFlare, Cloudinary, etc.

Let us help you discover the best answers for you and your ecommerce business. Don’t worry if your question isn’t listed here -- we’ll cover even more topics in this webinar or later in the series. Join us on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at 11:00am MST via Zoom to learn more about How to Optimize Images for Fast Loading
