First paying customer

Matthew Brown @matthewbrown

Ok, it took a little longer than I anticipated, but we got our first paying customer signed up at least! I'm really excited about that, and am hoping that the data it gives me on how our WordPress optimisation performs on another site will help to sell the next person. So far, we're seeing significant performance gains. Their WordPress site dropped from averaging between 9 and 20 seconds loading time down to between 2 and 4 seconds average loading time!
