It’s come to my attention that my website is not loading quickly.
According to Google, it has a mobile score of 40/100 and a desktop score of 47/100. I have not modified the template in anyway (aside from custom css) and as you can see my site is not rich with images.
Here’s the Google scorecard: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.homestretchmktg.com&tab=mobile
The SKT SEO demo site has a much better score of 67/100 for mobile and 70/100 for desktop: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fsktperfectdemo.com%2Fdemos%2Fseo%2F&tab=mobile
Do you have any recommendations for specific plugins, or changes I can make to help the load time?

Kindly use compressjpeg.com or tinypng.com to reduce sizes and compress all your images and reupload them.
Lastly kindly use WP Fastest Cache plugin and ask hosting to have Zend Op Cache and PHP Server cache applied to your site or if they have NGINX available get them to use that.
With all the above steps i am sure your site will be faster. Theme is just part of the entire WordPress website ecosystem and our themes are coded to be faster.
Rest are all generic points i mentioned here.
