Data Warehouse Solutions
The idea here would be to create a “Alumni 360” as a foundation for everything that is to be established for alumni engagement. We would aggregate all data sources, for example Razor’s Edge, mailing lists, WIFI, sponsor data and more. This would allow to import 3rd party data to deepen understanding of both existing and potential donors (ex. Environics, Facebook Ad Data, LinkedIn profile data, etc.). There are many data warehouses to choose from and we will run a discovery to understand your current technology stack and identify options.
The creation of the data warehouse allows to move to next step in a better alumni engagement, starting with a simple model that pushes beyond Environics generalizations and connects actual digital behaviour with our understanding of who each donor is. Journey mapping can be created – the process of visually outlining and understanding a customer’s experience, interactions, and touchpoints with your organization. This creates a more personalized marketing execution to increase alumni engagement.
Marketing tech can be integrated with the data warehouse, which becomes the heart of your marketing tech stack, pushing out to email, Facebook ad manager, LinkedIn, DM partners and more. Dashboards can be created to track ROI on campaign performance and alumni engagement through various channels. Finally, you can develop and execute acquisition campaigns to deepen your potential alumni database. When we speak of marketing technology, we are speaking of platforms such as Salesforce Marketing Cloud, Hubspot and Marketo.
