#13NTCsdataWhat we‟ll cover today• What is Social Data• Why is Social Data important• How Social Data is connected• NWF‟s story and uses of Social Data• CARE‟s story and uses of Social Data• Other industry use cases• Q&A
#13NTCsdataDid you know…• In the year 2000 there were 248 Million people online…compared to 1.01 Billion active users of Facebook alonein 2012 (PS. India only has 1.1 Billion people)• There is more content created every single day than there was created from the beginning of time till the year 2000
#13NTCsdataWhat is Social Data?• Information exchanged and communicated with friends, family and acquaintances on social networks• Information about what is most important and/or relevant for a given person at this moment• 90% of what you can know about a person is unstructured data. (IBM)• This learning drives campaign success• Story of giving a dollar to a beggar
#13NTCsdataWhy is Social Data is important?• Social Data Intelligence is “the management and analysis of donor data from social sources, used to activate and recalibrate marketing and business programs.” (Forrester Research)• Understand donors for high touch & also mass communications• Know what‟s important right now• Know which constituents are right for which campaigns• Bottom line……the right offer……to the right people……for the right reasons……at the right time.
#13NTCsdataThe NWF Social Data Story• Social Media has become a connector to give insight to other areas of the organization• Evolution at NWF• Four years ago…social what?• Three years ago…”social experiment”• Two years ago…social isn‟t going away, but doesn‟t impact me• One year ago…of course social is valuable…. but… where do we get started?
#13NTCsdataSome key findings• In order to implement…we needed to do some back testing…and here‟s what we found:• People on social gave higher average gifts• People on social have better response rate to mail • Those on Facebook or Twitter were at the top• Response rates especially high for • Donors above $1,000 • New Donor Acquisition
#13NTCsdataAre our major gift prospects social?
#13NTCsdataWays to use integrated social & CRM data • Make Social smarter • Know who you‟re talking to • Informed engagement • Example 1: Donors who are passionate and influential (proactive) • Example 2: Crisis management – Scotts (reactive) • Social Reporting that is relevant • Different feedback for different parts of the organization • “All Retweets are nice…but all that I care about is current and lapsed members. What are they retweeting?” • Make Traditional campaigns smarter • More informed content choices (integrated multi-channel outreach) • More targeted campaigns • Sustainers • Local Event Champions • Monitoring long term benefits & changes to donors • How does their engagement with you on social change their commitment to the organization
#13NTCsdataAreas to use Social Data• Social Engagement (CRM history in social context)• Employer Matching (those who work at a company who would match gift)• Overall Gift Level Increase (who has higher capacity to give) • Modify Ask Level (an increase of 25-50% for relevant donors)• Sustainer Gifts (biggest growth objective for 2013)• Local Events/Advocacy – Hike and Seek• Gala Events – Inauguration Green Ball
#13NTCsdataEvents: National Strategy• National • Goal: Raise overall awareness and support of kids outdoor activities • Method: Identify & engage national Key Influencers who can best help spread the word about the events and benefits
#13NTCsdataEvents – Local Chapters for Hike & Seek• Three Main Goals • New participants acquisition & advocacy • Re-engage lapsed participants • Increase retention of last year‟s participants• Developed Key Target “VIP” Lists for the different locations. • Out of the 2.3M email records, we hyper focused on those who • have participated recently in Hike and Seek (794 participants) • are in top 5% of users (40 key participants) • Here‟s how the lists shook out • Atlanta Area - 3 • Seattle Area – 6 • Chicago Area – 5 • Greater DC Area – 15 • New York/New Jersey Area –11

Small Act – The StartBegan as a Web Team „Skunk Works‟ Project.We first wanted to determine how much of our active donorbase was active on social to simply justify increased webmarketing spend in social.We want to align our messaging and advertising withdonors to increase giving / move to monthly sustainerprogram – how do we segment and model them todetermine who to send the most effective message?How can we best increase donor engagement?
Small Act – The MixTake Convio Online data … – Active Emails = 507,106 addresses.Mix in Offline data …– Accounts „Householded‟ with multiple email address- Giving amounts and frequencyBring in the Lapsed Donors …Add the Advocacy „Action Takers‟ data

Major Giving – Relationship Managers(RM‟s)Changing the Mindsets with Data.Much easier to convince RM with a Title from LinkedIin and SegmentationMatches.Just because someone is not a donor „yet‟ does not mean they are notExtremely Valuable to your Org.KI / En - Let them Amplify your own message.Use Social Score rank to qualify.
Where Should the Data Live?After you have the Social Data Matches the CONNECTIONS aremore important than the just having an email address of the donors.People may change there email addresses – there profiles in SocialMedia rarely change – they just expand.Best to store this with the Donors record in CRM.Custom field for the URL.Don‟t make it difficult to get at or use…Keep expanding the database.
