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.

Here at HighRoad, we’re passionate about helping associations select the right tools for their marketing technology stacks. Choosing the right marketing automation platform and email marketing system is a crucial step toward growing, engaging, and retaining members and customers. However, utility of these tools can be limited if the data isn't at the helm. If data within your digital platform isn't integrated with the data held in your Association Management System (AMS), then your platform output will fall short.

Marrying this data on an ongoing basis is what tells the full story about each individual. It's what makes a marketer truly data-driven and goal-tied. As such, today, we’re diving into our flagship integration productour Plus Connector

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.

Digital marketing, and marketing in general, has two central goals: acquisition (finding the right people and converting them to customers) and retention (keeping those people engaged with your brand or organization via consistent communication). Our goals as marketers within the association space are really no different. Using a variety of methods, from annual conferences to social media ads, we hope to attract the right people to join our association, and once we’ve captured their interest and information, we hope to provide them with valuable information to keep them engaged.
