Enable compression for the following resources to reduce their transfer size.
Compressing https://forms.hubspot.com/…9310e1214ecd?callback=hs_reqwest_1&hutk= could save 30.2KiB (68% reduction).

Minify HTML for the following resources to reduce their size by 659B (14% reduction).
Leverage Browser Caching for the following cacheable resources:
http://js.hsforms.net/forms/v2.js (expiration not specified)
https://js.hs-scripts.com/2398566.js (expiration not specified)
https://js.leadin.com/js/v2/2398566.js (expiration not specified)

The result would be a better score, thereby helping our websites SEO.
