Target Supporters

Target: Increase Your Relevance

By understanding what’s important to your supporters, Salsa empowers you to engage supporters about what’s most relevant to them.  Whether it’s pet adoptions to animal lovers, nutrition information to the health conscious, or environmental tips to conservationists, relevant content is the key to improved engagement. The more you know your supporters, the more personalized your interactions will be.

Know your supporters with the industry’s richest donor profiles. Target with easy to use segmentation and grouping techniques based on demographics, giving level, location, etc. Apply different strategies for different supporters based on their interests, preferred methods of contact and personal profiles.

Build Rich Donor Profiles

Understanding your donors is the key to effectively segmenting and targeting them with relevant content and timely communications.

Manage all your donor contact information in one place, track all online and offline historical interactions, and score your donors based on their social media behavior. Add an unlimited number of custom data elements, track specific supporter information, and tailor the system to meet your organization's needs.


Built-in Segments for Targeted Fundraising

With a deep understanding of your supporters, you can now create advanced segments within the system, allowing you to reach exactly the right group of people with the specific messaging that will resonate with them.

Salsa comes with pre-built best practice segments for major donors, LYBUNT, SYBUNT, prospects who haven't donated, first time donors, and many, many more. 

You can configure these pre-built segments to match your needs. For example, set the "major donor" segment threshold to $200, and any time a donor crosses that mark, the system will automatically add them to the "major donor" segment.

Create Custom Segments Based on Any Information

Our built-in segments will save you time and enable you to target quickly. Because every organization is unique, Salsa also gives you the ability to define custom segments.

You can build segments through simple rules and configurations, or you can create combinations of advanced queries and groups within groups.  The power and flexibility is right at your fingertips.

You can segment your supporters by professional network, demographics, gift size, location, campaign, fund, appeal, giving capacity or any other data point.

Prebuilt, custom, dynamic, no matter how you want to segment your supporters, Salsa makes it easy, powerful and effective.

RFM Segmentation for Campaigns, Funds or Appeals

Recency, frequency, monetary analysis and segmentation can help you slice and dice your donor list so that you're maximizing return on your fundraising investment. Uncover who has donated in the last three months, who has given twice in the last year, or who has contributed over $500. 

Salsa's easy to use query wizard puts you in the driver seat, giving you total control over your lists, and allowing you to group constituents for targeted cultivation.


Augment Targeting with Wealth Screening

Integrate Salsa CRM with your favorite wealth intelligence tools such as WealthEngine™ and DonorSearch™ that will identify constituents ready for major gift cultivation.

According to DonorSearch, individuals who have made a gift of $5k – $10k to a nonprofit are 5 times more likely to make a large charitable donation elsewhere.

Uncover hidden giving potential from right inside your database. With deeper insights into your supporters, you’ll prospect smarter, not harder.


Connect: Broaden Your Reach
