Scott Brown made some uh interesting design choices for his new Massachusetts New Hampshire Senate campaign website. But where he went really wrong was his contribution form.
We’ve been watching this video from WebPageTest on a loop today (spoiler alert: our entire form loads before their first response):
We’re obsessive here at ActBlue about page load time, going to great lengths to shave off hundredths of a second. It’s often the difference between someone giving a donation and just simply giving up, particularly when they are on a mobile device. And that’s why 20.3% of all contributions on ActBlue last month were made on mobile. If your numbers aren’t up there, you’re doing it wrong.
And none of that would have been possible without the support of thousands of ActBlue donors, so thank you.
Now let’s all stop laughing at Scott Brown (for the moment) and get back to work powering Democrats to victory this November.
