Resource Tuesday: One Of The Best Free Tools You Can Use To Measure Page Speed

Adaptistration People 042When it comes to webpage loading times, speed is everything and one of the most common bear traps you can stumble into is assuming your experience visiting the organization’s website is like everyone’s experience. Au contraire…

Fortunately, there are a bevy of free tools you can use to get a realistic idea of page load speeds and I highlighted one in particular via a post at ArtsHacker yesterday: WebPageTest.org.

If the world of page load speed testing is new to you, no worries, you’ll also find a link to a fantastic five min tutorial video with a step-by-step instructions on how to use WebPageTest’s tools and how to interpret the results.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
