What happened last week - 10.05 - 14.05.2021

The good

RemoteNActive

  • I got the German Website live and running
  • Discovered various ways to optimize site speed via
    • Image size optimization
    • Delaying iframe output via jQuery/Javascript

Code to delay iframe (including OnClick Confetti, because… Confetti ;)

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

$(function(){

$('#buttonframe').click(function(){

if(!$('#iframe').length) {

$('#iframeHolder').html('<iframe src="URL-to-canvas-here"> </iframe>');

}

function randomInRange(min, max) {

return Math.random() * (max - min) + min;

}

confetti({

angle: randomInRange(55, 125),

spread: randomInRange(50, 70),

particleCount: randomInRange(50, 100),

origin: { y: 0.6 }

});

});

});

</script>
  • Site Speed optimized: Desktop looks very good.

  • Soft-Launch by messaging friends and ex-work colleagues

The bad

RemoteNActive

  • English Website not live yet
  • Mobile Site speed is not so optimal.

  • The reason seems to be that I use Tailwind via CDN which has a lot of CSS which I do not need and this slows down the mobile version of the website. Fix is most likely to install Tailwind locally and compile only the CSS I need.

  • Got one decline from a prospect ūü§∑ūüŹĹ‚Äć‚ôāÔłŹ

  • I have to set my monthly and weekly goals clearer

The ugly

  • Website is rather bloated with external javascript
  • No case study yet

What’s next?

  • Main priority is to find my first 4 case study clients
    • Either through my personal contacts
    • Or starting paid marketing
