===== Who is Ben? =====
In 2010, I made my first WordPress website.
In 2014, I started a WordPress theme business called Compete Themes. I’ve since designed and developed 19 WordPress themes that have been downloaded more than 1.5+ million times. As a WordPress user, developer, and business owner, I can tell you that I know this platform inside-and-out.
Now I’m teaching everything I know.
I’m on a mission to answer all of the web’s WordPress questions, and with the lessons in my videos, you’ll skip hours of frustration and instead learn how to use WordPress in a way that is both simple and enjoyable.

===== About this Video =====
There are quite a few plugins available to optimize your images, but OptiMole stands out because of it’s extremely simple design. All you really need to do is install and activate the plugin.
Here’s how to optimize images for WordPress:
The first step to optimize images in WordPress with OptiMole is to get an API key. You can sign up on their site for free and it only takes a minute.
Once you have your API key, login to your WordPress site and install the Optimole plugin. You’ll see a welcome page where you can enter your API and your site will then connect to their service. After a quick setup process, Optimole will begin the WordPress image optimization process. Every image you’ve uploaded to your Media Library will be automatically compressed by about 65% which will have a huge impact on your website’s performance.
The best part about this image compression plugin is that no further action is needed. In just a couple of minutes, you can speed up WordPress and forget about performance optimization tasks.

If you want complete control of your site’s design, you’ll love the Elementor plugin:
Every website needs forms, and for contact forms, sales forms, and even email marketing forms, WPForms is my go-to choice:
I LOVE the WP Rocket plugin for speeding up my site. It’s simple enough that I feel comfortable recommending it to brand new WP users, and yet it handles complex performance optimizations flawlessly:
If you’re looking for a very affordable host to get started with, Bluehost has plans as low as $2.95/month (I used them for my first site in 2010):
If you want the best WordPress hosting money can buy, choose Kinsta. I use them to host all of my websites now:
