Data-based marketing is nothing new. All marketing is based on some data. Before you reach out to any audience, you have to know a little about what makes them tick.
And everything you know counts as data. Their likes, their dislikes, their needs, their preferences. Their goals and the obstacles to their goals. All of these are data points that will help you produce a targeted, effective method.
We all know that every crisis is an opportunity, but there are some crises that are so vast that it’s hard to see a silver lining.
2020 has offered a once-in-a-generation crisis, with a tragic pandemic leading to global economic uncertainty. It’s a tough time for professionals and a tough time for businesses, which is why associations are more important now than ever.
Every purchasing decision happens at the end of a journey. When you buy a sandwich, it’s because you felt hungry, you thought about your food options, and you decided that the best available choice was a sandwich.
Association members follow the same process when they’re making decisions about attending events, renewing their membership, or getting certified. Their journey begins with the realization that they need something to help their career or their personal aspirations. Ideally, that journey ends―and another one begins―when they engage with your association.
Recognizing market needs, SharpSpring, the leading marketing automation platform for associations, has released its retargeting feature to complement its already robust functionality. While version 1.0 of the tool is officially live, full integration with SharpSpring, which will allow for better segmentation and reporting, is still in beta.
As a SharpSpring partner, HighRoad has been getting granular with the tool prior to its official release. For those SharpSpring users or for those considering the SharpSpring platform, here are some best practices to help you navigate this valuable new feature.
