Do you spend hours getting the right photo for your blog and then more hours editing them? How much time are you spending optimizing the photos?  Probably not enough.  

Did you know the #1 reason for slow site speed these days is lack of optimization for photos?  Slow site speed = less traffic to your site. Less traffic can mean fewer clients or less ad money. 

Glenneth of has created a FREE 5 day image optimization challenge for all bloggers and business owners.  During this challenge, Glenneth will show you the steps to optimizing your photos to help with SEO and improve your site speed. This FREE challenge starts Monday June 25th.  You will receive an email lesson each day that will take about 15-30 minutes.
