Predictive Modeling vs. Wealth Screening: Effective Segmentation Programs Require a Healthy Mix

Connection Cafe

Whenever I am on the road with clients the conversation always turns to a debate about the value of predictive modeling vs. the value of traditional wealth screening. Some tend to gravitate toward wealth data alone because it feels more tangible—or understandable—than predictive modeling. While others like that predictive models can focus on the likelihood to do something – make a gift, perhaps – and not just whether a prospect looks “rich.”.

Predicting the Future: Driving Fundraising Outcomes with Models

Wealth Screening Versus Modeling: Making the Best Choice for your Healthcare Organization

To explain why, let’s consider the two most frequently used tools: wealth screening and custom modeling. The second option, called modeling, provides custom, predicative insight about prospects who are likely to take an action with a specific organization. Custom modeling is time-consuming and requires more data from the organization; therefore, results are typically produced a couple times a year instead of on. Consider using wealth screenings and custom modeling together.
