All About: Signal Cadences

Note: Cadences is a feature of Signal by EverTrue. If you have questions about Signal, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager (CSM).

What are Signal Cadences?

Signal Cadences are strategically timed constituent outreach plans that take the guesswork out of donor engagement! When a constituent is added to a cadence, they are moved through a series of steps designed to advance the relationship. These steps prompt you to execute specific types of outreach on specific days, ensuring you focus on the right prospects at the right time.  

Cadences are designed with flexibility in mind! Constituents can be added to a cadence regardless of their assignment status, so you’ll have the ability to nurture existing assignments or qualify unassigned constituents.

You will have access to four cadences in Signal:

  1. Book a Meeting
  2. Nurture
  3. Stewardship
  4. Trip Planning 

Below, we will review each of these available cadences. Let’s get started!
