Marketing websites are the primary gateway for businesses to attract new customers, so performance is crucial. But slow pages, broken links, and site errors pose significant risks. Unfortunately, many marketing teams operate with tight budgets and limited technical resources, making it challenging to stay ahead of these technical issues. This leaves visitors, customers, and potential customers with a poor experience.

Most websites fail this important test
The bad news: Your website may be experiencing issues that are impacting your revenue and traffic without your knowledge.
Studies show that fast-loading sites have up to 3X better conversion rates compared to slow-loading sites. Shockingly, a significant portion of websites (59% of desktop sites and 68% of mobile sites) fail to meet Google core web vitals, which are essential for assessing overall user experience and influence SEO rankings. Consequently, poorly performing sites not only attract less traffic but also lose potential business due to frustrated users bouncing away.
The good news: You now have the ability to monitor your site's performance and take measures to address low scores for core web vitals. By optimizing your website's user experience, you can increase both traffic and conversions.
Don’t waste your time with one-time checks
Growth marketers know that website SEO and conversion rates depend on speed and reliability. Yet it can be tedious to follow a manual process to generate and save Google Lighthouse results and then compare them against previous months. This is especially true if you’re also checking competitors' sites to keep an eye on them—and maybe even checking at multiple times of day to see metric fluctuations.
It’s time-consuming and impractical to repeat this manually every single time, with no way to tell if you’ve already lost revenue to poor site performance.
That’s why New Relic built website performance monitoring with continuously streaming performance data. It shows you just what you need to ensure your web engineering team, demand gen team, and lifecycle marketing teams can drive results.
