Proof of Concept

Using a cherry picked e-commerce productpage, I will do technical adjustments to improve the loading time. This will lead to a video comparison, ilustrating perceived performance and user engagement wins.

Tests will be done on at least mobile 3G and 4G, with a before and after video comparison as a result.

What does it mean?

When doing a performance Proof of Concept, I will make a static version of an e-commerce product page of choice. Also custom fonts (and other resources which are subject to CORS) will be copied to a local environment. This is the 'before' situation.

On top of the before-situation, I will implement some best practices to illustrate the improvements towards user engagement via perceived performance. To demonstrate this in an optimal way, I always do video comparisons of the before and after situations on different internet speeds.

Why a Proof of Concept?

The main reason for a proof of concept is to showcase the room for improvement. On top of that, it also helps enthusiasm all involved departments or parties. For example, business owners, product owners, UX and conversion specialists and obviously developers.

While making a Proof of Concept, it also enables me to determine other pitfalls which could be addressed at the same time, or in other stages.

How much does it cost?

Creating a Proof of Concept including best pactices towards improved loading time and optimal UX at the same time, may take one working day (excluding years of theoretical and practical knowledge).
As a result, I charge around 2.000 euro's (excluding VAT) for a Proof of Concept of one (product)page.

What comes after a Proof of Concept?

In the next phase, I will explain the applied improvements and illustrate how it is helping UX. Obviously, the next successive phase is optional.

Although a Proof of Concept typically is only covering one page, the techniques may well be implementent on all it's siblings or even other pagetypes as well.
