About the project
Primary Guard was a new project by Forest Interactive, they offer an IT and Cybersecurity services, it is a B2B company. They were needed a new website, a more modern, mobile optimize, fast and search engine friendly.
They also need an easy way to add content for their blog and newsroom, as well as their events page. Because of this reason, we decided to choose WordPress, a user-friendly and easy to use CMS.
The main challenge for this project was they provide me a prebuilt WordPress theme, they purchased the theme through a WordPress themes marketplace. But the design from their design team was totally different than the prebuilt theme.
I made quite a lot of customization to met their design. But it was a smooth process, their team, support and help me throughout the process, and we completed the project in timely manner.
The second challenge I faced was to optimize the performance. The company uses GTmetrix to check website performance, and the requirement was minimum B score when tested on mobile with LTE connection.
It took me several days to get B score since the website was heavily built with one of the most popular page builder, Elementor. Page builder such as Elementor is great, time saver, but bad in terms of performance. Combination of Cloudflare, WP Rocket, WebP image format, and several improvements helps the website got B score on GTmetrix.
