ChatGPT got you worried? I gave it a test to write this email…
A couple of years ago, I recorded a video about the importance of website load speed and asked ChatGPT to write an email, following my transcript, and using the style from my blog articles.
I was lively and fun in the video. I had jokes, expression, and cringe-worthy movie quotes in all the right places, for goodness sake!
Unfortunately, ChatGPT made me sound boring. Boo!
So, I asked it to give me a re-write channeling its inner Leslie Knope, from Parks and Recreation.
Before the Big Reveal
A quick word about about website load speed.
Slow websites are the second reason your website might not work for you. Test this before you make a big investment in new copy or design.
(The first problem was traffic – see traffic article here.)
Now back to our previously scheduled program.
Here’s ChatGPT, channeling Leslie Knope, talking about website load speed…
You know what’s worse than a raccoon in your trash can? A website that takes forever to load. Did you know that 40% of people abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load? That’s like throwing away a perfectly good waffle because it has a slightly burnt edge. Don’t do it!
Fixing The Issue
Now, one issue that might be slowing down your website is the images. I know, I know, you want your website to look pretty. But uploading high-resolution, full-size images is like putting a giant stack of waffles on your plate when you know you can only eat one. It’s excessive and unnecessary. So, try to get those images under 300 kilobytes. Trust me, your website visitors will thank you.
So, to sum it up: website speed matters, friends. Don’t let slow loading times ruin your website’s chances of success. And if you need help, just remember: Leslie Knope has got your back.
Go Speed Test Yourself would have been great, for example.
So, my thought is ChatGPT gathers lots of “facts” about a lot of things. But it’s definitely not me (or Leslie Knope)…yet…
