Segmentation and Matching  

You’ve got your data in Salesforce and you know your constituent’s preferences, interests, and personal data. But how do you use this data to better match your constituents to programs, build targeted appeal lists, or find the perfect Major Gift Officer to assign to your major donors? Salesforce reports can help give you a general list of contacts with the same preferences, but they don’t provide relevant match scores based on your specifically-ranked criteria. 

Target Accelerator  

The Cloud for Good Target Accelerator can take your Salesforce data and your personally-defined criteria (ranked either high, medium, or low priority) then provide you with scored, targeted results that you can use to make informed decisions. 

With the Cloud for Good Target Accelerator you’ll be able to:  

  • Reduce time spent pulling reports and manually manipulating in Excel to find your matches and segments 
  • Remove the limitation of the standard Salesforce reports and use any data regardless of its relationship 
  • Increase program success by engaging only the most relevant matches for your constituents and programs 
  • Stay consistent by sharing the same rule sets for segmentation and matching across the entire organization  
  • Raise more funds by targeting the right constituents for your events, programs, and courses 

How We’ve Seen Success

The possibilities for how you use the application are limitless. Here are just a few of the ways we’re seeing success:  

Target Mentorship Match 

Research suggests that a collaborative mentoring relationship, established when mentors and mentees are matched by having similar interests, gender, and/or ethnic backgrounds, are more likely to thrive. In the past, this match could have been achieved by keeping files on each mentor and mentee and running basic reports or filtering Excel lists multiple times in order to find potential matches. Now, with the Cloud for Good Target Mentorship Match application, this can be done by simply creating your ranked list of priorities, selecting your mentee, and making a match. A task that would have once taken hours, now takes only minutes.  

Target Career Match 

Matching job listings to potential applicants has never been easier. Find qualified candidates in your system by utilizing the Target Segment and Matching Data Accelerator. You’ll be presented with scored recommendations based on the job’s specific criteria.  

Target Volunteer Match 

Fill your programs with qualified volunteersUse the list of scored matches to market specific opportunities that fit the volunteer’s interests and location. Easily change your criteria for each of your unique volunteer programs to increase your impact with the most appropriate and engaged volunteers selected.  

Target Course Match 

Looking to fill your empty class seats? Find candidates who are the best fit based on location, interest, age, or any mix of your specific criteria. Use the returned matches to offer the seats to your candidate with the highest percentage match first. Easily change your criteria for each of your unique programs to increase your impact with the most appropriate and engaged candidates selected 

Target List Build 

Creating targeted lists is an essential building block to ensuring the success of your fundraising or marketing activities. You’re more successful when you reach the contacts in your system who will be most moved by your message, cause, or theme, and exclude those who aren’t a match. For some events, you may be looking to cast a wide net for any contacts in the area, while for others you may need a more targeted group of individuals. It’s up to you to set the criteria and add only the contacts who qualify to your campaigns. Easily update the criteria and run unique matches for each event or campaign you need
