    Check tools like pingdom and gtmetrix to see the load time for the GEO your users are based in. You must use a CDN service (like cloudflare), reduce image size if they're big enough and most importantly use a good webhost, preferably a VPS.

    The tools I mentioned, will suggest you the ways to improve your loading time anyway.

    Deffo suggest a VPS, especially when you start a campaign. You don't want that baby crashing when all the traffic comes flooding in.

    • Fast performing and reliable webserver is a must with enough resources and free memory available.
    • How to check server memory (in SSH or a LINUX Terminal):
      Code:
      $ watch -t -n 10 "(date;ls -lh memMon  ; free -mh) >>memMon; tail -n5  memMon"
      
      don't forget to empty the data saved I get 4mb/day~
      Code:
      $ echo -n > memMon
    • CMS like WordPress (others) are generally slower --complex scripting has runtime.
    • Images need to be compressed properly .webp is recommended to replace the older .jpg amd .png (where it can be used/or rendered properly)
    • Cloudflare adds load time in many cases when used (ddos protect--in hiding mode) to check and redirect to the real server IP --this is not a CDN function. Do you really need a CDN or can you just use a GEO area server, e.g.; Europe, US-North America, Asia, etc ...

    First inspect those pages which are causing heavy load times . You can use GTMETRIX or google analytics
    1) Optimize your images
    2) Minify CSS
    3) Defer parsing of javascript
    4) Leverage browser caching
    5) Fix inline small javascript
    6) Combine images using CSS sprites
    7) Using Fast host
