  • Netflix: “75% of what people watch is from some sort of recommendation”Amazon: “35 percent of product sales result from recommendations”. 20-30% from other sources
  • We are doing three types of segmentations at Michigan. The first one is using market basket analysis.
  • This is exactly what the Amazon’s of the world do. When you buy items in a market, if you buy bread, cheese, you’re likely to buy butter or milk. Perhaps, donors exhibit similar behavior. For non-degree granting, this is an easy way to expand the constituency base.Next slide: Third one is demographic + giving history segmentation
  • Here we show the characteristics of three clusters. Once we know what type of attributes each cluster has, we label them as “Best, Better, Good”. % Managed is an important factorNext slide: geographic segmentation
  • Based on the “best” prospects data, we create segments for the whole country, so that the regions can be created optimally. In this case, there are six regions were created based on proximity of the constituents.
  • Let the fundraisers drive the process.
  • Added last bullet here per team request in presentation
