My website load time and a question
I'm in the process of building a wordpress website for the marketing company I am putting together. I had two questions.
One - my website takes incredibly long to load - probably around 5-6 seconds on average. Does anybody have any idea on how to fix this?
Two - Can anyone recommened any plug-ins or where to figure out how to have an email sign-up link to a download? Like "enter email and receive this free ebook" type thing.

Use a tool like this http://tools.pingdom.com/fpt/ to see how many assets you're loading and how long they're taking. There are likely things you can do like optimizing images or combining CSS / JS files with a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/.
I haven't used these before, but check these out: https://wordpress.org/plugins/ss-downloads/ and https://wordpress.org/plugins/email-before-download/
Thanks man, appreciate it!
