Any nonprofit organization can benefit from donor targeting. The development and implementation of targeting strategies varies based on which nonprofit data management software is licensed by an organization. Here are a few pointers from RE software integration experts on selecting the best constituent relationship management and data integration software for any organization and implementing strategies to target donors.
Why Data Management Integration Software is Crucial
Data management integration software directly determines the ability of an organization to pursue targeting. Integration tools make it possible to export donor data from a CRM to other applications in use and add fundraising and engagement data to records through a NPSP data import. Organizations that license Raiser’s Edge NXT as a primary CRM can rely on a single service for many constituent communications and fundraising functions, but many prefer to use external applications for email marketing, social media management and tracking engagement.
Integration makes it easier to combine the right tools for any engagement, outreach, communication or fundraising process and ensure that an organization gathers useful data for use in targeting. Salesforce NPSP is a more customizable CRM with supported integrations available through the AppExchange. The connective capabilities of this CRM can be supplemented by integration software purpose-built for the not-for-profit sector.
How To Cleanly Attain Insights To Grow Your Mission
The cleanest way to attain insights is to use the analytics tools built into the CRM system in use at an organization and solutions provided by integration software. Organizations that rely on multiple systems may find a centralized database to be useful for searches, segmentation and other queries.
Omatic Cloud stands out for its inclusion of features such as SegmentOmatic and ScoreOmatic, which support segmentation for the purpose of targeting and affinity and engagement scoring functions. Other cultivation tools included in Omatic can supplement the insights gleaned in a CRM by factoring in the best data available across integrated systems.
The Most Precise Ways To Target Donors
Several targeting methods are particularly useful for nonprofit organizations. One such method is to factor in generational contact preferences in situations where more specific preferences have not been specified. The ability to search donors by age can enable an organization to take the best approach toward targeting constituents with relevant information and giving appeals.
The ability of an organization to target donors is predicated on the accuracy, currency and overall health of donor data. Omatic has data health functions to complete, deduplicate and improve data. These improvements can pay off when it comes to searches and queries to segment donors for targeted messaging.
The CRM and data integration software a nonprofit organization licenses play a significant part in donor targeting. For instance, a CRM may allow for slightly different functions for queries and segmentation and handle data derived from third-party applications differently. Integration software can increase the availability and quality of data originating on any of the connected systems in use at a nonprofit. All of these factors determine the ease and effectiveness of targeting donors with appeals to give, opportunities for engagement and outreach.
