8. Click on the Summary tab to view the Positive and Negative attributes.


9. This is where machine learning comes in. Thumbs up or Thumbs down the results. Doing this allows teaches your model by telling us which leads are great and which are not. The model will be more refine the next time you run it.

1. After you have mastered your first Predict model, you can get more creative by building models based off company size, vertical or other characteristics.
2. Segment your current customers into SMB, Mid-Market and Enterprise accounts and build a model for each market.


3. Sync over the model grades and scores into Salesforce so reps can easily access them.

Using Predict in Targeting

1. In the Targeting module, choose the condition Prediction Model, select your model and choose which grade(s) you would like to include in your report.


2. Further filter the results by applying additional conditions, or filter out Salesforce/Hubspot data using the Tag condition.


3. Export the results to CSV or search for Contacts.


Syncing Predict Grades and Scores to CRM or MA Tool

1. You can sync over as many Predict model grades and scores as you would like. Let your CSM or Integrations Specialist know which models you would like to sync.
2. Create fields in your CRM or Marketing Automation tool in the following format for each model you would like to sync:
     a. Datanyze_Customer_Model_Grade__c (Text)
     b. Datanyze_Customer_Model_Score__c (Text)

Customize Your Predict Model Grade and Score Thresholds

1. The default thresholds for predict models are seen below:


2. To update these, go to your Predict model summary and update each threshold.


3. Updating the thresholds can help reps prospect into accounts they would otherwise view as not qualified, if the lead showed an A vs. B grade lead, for example.
