What is an override?
Overrides are rules you can add to your model to restrict the scores of your leads and contacts based on demographics, firmographics, or technographics traits.
- boost the score of leads
- downgrade the score of leads
- avoid the score of leads falling beyond or going beyond a threshold
Override downgrading the score of leads
The idea is to make sure certain categories of leads will always be scored low whatever their other defining traits. This is particularly relevant for leads that you don't want to send to your sales team. Here are some classic overrides our customers usually create:
- Score spam emails low
- Score student emails low
- Score leads from your own company low
- Score leads from your competitors low
- Score leads from 'low GDP per capita countries' low
Override boosting the score of leads
The idea is to make sure certain categories of leads will always be scored good or very good whatever their other defining traits. This is particularly relevant for categories of leads that you're newly targeting or some of the big companies in the market that may have not performed well in the past but that you still want your sales team to talk to. Here are some recommendations:
- Score fortune_1000 emails at least good or very good
- Score target account emails at least good or very good
- Score leads from 100,000-employee companies at least good
When boosting segments of leads, also try to think about your ICP or certain specific technologies that your product integrates with. You don't want to miss out on these!
Override boosting an ICP persona
To create such overrides, the best way is to first create a persona computation and then add an override focused on this computation. Here's how to create a persona computation.
Override boosting companies using certain technologies
For this, you can either use directly the computations hg__tech or company_tech in your overrides or create a "has_integration_technologies" computation.
Use of hg__tech & company_tech directly in the overrides
Creation of a "has_integration_technologies" based on hg__tech & company_tech
