A report published in 2007 by Akamai, the leading Content Delivery Network, shows that an insignificant delay of 1/10 of a second causes a decrease in conversion rate by 7%. Even more, a two-second delay in web page load time increase bounce rates by 103 percent.
Let's say you have installed a few apps on your store, providing some of these features:
If you have an app for each of these features, you should know that they are all loaded from different servers, in different locations around the world. The page will not finish loading until all of the apps do - and usually the front-facing apps are the reason for the long load time of the stores.
And remember that most of your traffic is mobile-based. Another stat published by Akamai, in the same report, is that 53 percent of mobile site visitors will leave a page that takes longer than three seconds to load. If you are dropshipping for instance, most of your traffic is coming from Facebook or Instagram influences, so you probably have about 80% mobile traffic.
And now imagine you can load only one app instead of all of them. With state-of-the-art caching, served from data-centers all around the world.
This app includes ALL these AWESOME features:
Aaaaand we're already working on 3 more apps!
One of the most important advantages of VITALS is that all these apps work flawlessly together. No more overlapping between the bars and notifications :)
An interesting Shopify stat shows that stores have 4 apps installed on average. After working with a lot of dropshipping companies, where impulse buying is extremely important, we’ve seen lots of cases with 15-20 apps installed.
While we haven't built every imaginable app, we're doing our best to constantly add apps to VITALS. And we are 100% sure that paying one small monthly fee has its benefits over subscribing to more than 10 apps. We've done our math and VITALS saves you over $1,100 / year in other apps expenses.
We've implemented a "Suggest a feature" module in the app. The most up-voted suggestions will be developed by us with top priority. We think it's a fair trade - you get involved in shaping the feature of VITALS and we give you what you really need.
