    Maybe they have slow internet? In that case, you can't really do anything. But you can do the following stuffs:

    1) Optimize your CSS, html and JS by minifying them.
    2) Optimize your images, you can use Yahoo's free Image Optimizer service named Smush.it
    3) Try to set your cache for a longer duration so that when they load the site next time, it will be a lot faster.

    If you are using WordPress try to disable most of the plugins and use a theme that will give the same functionality. Did wonders for my sites.
