When Talisma Fundraising performs well, it gives organizations and his constituents a number of benefits. It improves communication between organizations and their donors, improves coordination within organizations, allows for targeted and effective fundraising campaigns easy to set up and execute.

Of course when Talisma Fundraising does not perform well, organizations and their constituents do not enjoy these benefits. Before going live with Talisma Fundraising or an updated version, it is important to test how well it will perform under the different levels of stress that it will be under. You do not want to find out about performance issues when the organization and its constituents are relying on its benefits.


Not finding out about these performance issues can greatly hinder your own fundraising efforts, annoy donors, and ultimately affect the bottom line. That is why load testing is critically important. Here is how to set up and execute effective load tests in the least amount of time and at the lowest possible cost.

Step 1: Select the Right Load Tester

The success of your Talisma Fundraising load testing will depend ultimately on which load tester you select. Selecting the right load testing application will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of load testing while avoiding problems like high cost and the delayed launch of your application. Selecting the wrong load testing application, of course, makes it likely that you will experience these problems.

Some things look for when investing in a load testing application are ease of use, end user testing, and protocol independence.

Step 2: Set up the Load Test

Once you have your load testing application, you need to actually set up your load test. Talisma Fundraising is web-based and can be accessed by users anywhere with any type of device. This should be reflected when you set up each load test. You should simulate multiple users using a wide variety of browsers accessing your application at the same time.

Step 3: Execute Multiple Load Tests

You should perform multiple load tests on Talisma Fundraising. The reason is that the amount of stress that it will be under will vary. There will be the normal level of stress that it will be under, along with higher-than-expected levels of stress during times such as major fundraising pushes. It is better to know whether your set up and deal with those spikes in usage beforehand rather than finding out what a bunch a donors are trying to give your organization money but cannot.

If you follow these guidelines, your load testing efforts will be successful. The biggest factor, of course, is load testing application that you select.

As you learned in step one, a good load testing application is easy use, tests from the end users point of view, and is protocol independent. These factors will minimize costs, minimize delays, and increase the effectiveness of each load test.

AppLoader is a load testing application that has all of these features. If you invest in AppLoader, setting up and executing multiple load tests is easy.
