Instantaneous notifications, going far beyond Google
If you’re a busy fundraiser trying to keep track of your top prospects, you need to know right away if they’ve sold their company or made a major donation to a nonprofit across town.
With free search engine alert services, you definitely get what you pay for: lots of missed articles and nothing from social media. More charities are posting major gifts on their websites and Facebook pages that search engines just don’t capture. And if your prospective donor lives abroad, you completely miss local coverage about them.
HBG Alert Services
We have created an alert service that solves those issues.
Provide us with the name of a prospect, company, foundation or topic and we will create a personalized alert just for you. Choose global news with regional sources in several languages; social media; web sites and forums; or a combination of some or all of them. The results will be delivered to you by email on a daily or weekly basis, just as you need.
If you need to keep track of several constituents, we will create a password-protected web page where you can view all of your alerts in an easy-to-use dashboard whenever you like.
Our alert service is completely customizable: you may add, modify or subtract alerts at any time.
NOTE: this service comes standard with our Dedicated Research Support for up to 25 alerts.
A specialty museum approached us to help them identify new donors interested in their subject area. As part of our prospect identification services, we set up a topical alert for the specialty area and for donations given to museums with departments covering the specialty area. Over the period of six months, we were able to identify several new major gifts prospects for the museum.
