What Exactly is Propensity Modelling?

So, what’s the buzz about Propensity Modelling? Imagine a crystal ball that helps Nonprofits predict supporter actions with mind-blowing accuracy. This includes historical data, various attributes, and a touch of magic that estimates the likelihood of someone taking a specific action. Donors, volunteers, advocates—Propensity Modelling helps Nonprofits discover these hidden gems by decoding past actions, preferences, and interactions.

Scores, Predictions, and a Dash of Magic

Each potential supporter gets a personalised score based on their probability of taking a desired action, be it donating, volunteering, or signing a petition. What factors influence this score? Everything from contact frequency and recent interactions to social media engagement, personal interests, and demographics. The higher the score, the more likely the magic is about to happen.
