How can I find and mobilize supporters of my cause?
TargetPoint Consulting engaged with a global energy company to help them identify and mobilize Long Island citizens in support of the development of a processing terminal off the Eastern Coast of the United States. Their goal was to establish a grassroots army that could be counted on to take action on behalf of the project – getting them to write letters to the editor, contact elected officials and to attend town-hall type events.
Through MicroTargeting, TargetPoint Consulting identified approximately 150,000 recruits for communication, education and activation. Using the models TargetPoint constructed, this group consisted of those individuals most likely to support the project and most likely to take action on a community issue. Moreover, this group was split into three subgroups based upon the particular messaging that was most likely to motivate them to take action.
The generated list of supportive activists received mail pieces asking them to call in to the office and attend an upcoming community meeting. Based upon reports received from the company, there was a robust response rate, and nearly all the responses were positive, indicating sound modeling.
TargetPoint was also able to match the list of 150,000 activists to email addresses, with a match rate of approximately 22%. These 32,000 citizens received an email that mirrored the mail piece.
By more effectively targeting resources to the right individuals with the right message MicroTargeting was able to produce meaningful budget efficiencies for this grassroots targeting project, allowing more people to be recruited at lower overall acquisition costs.
