Data and Analytics Meets Acquisition, Activation and Retention Best Practices

Know who your BEST visitors, prospects, members, and donors are and how BEST to engage them

iSOCRATES can help.

Since 1985, iSOCRATES (formerly known as SIGMA Data Insights) has helped museums, zoos, aquariums, schools and other nonprofits and membership organizations develop data-driven strategies for targeted communications and media placement leading to increased visitation, acquisition, activation and renewal.

We start by helping you understand the demographic, geographic, psychographic attitudinal, and behavioral characteristics of your prospects, visitors, members, and donors like you never have before. iSOCRATES will help you to determine your Total Addressable Market, including lookalikes based upon your current best audiences.

We then help you translate that into more success using our proven Artificial Intelligence-based technology, proprietary profiling and segmentation systems, data mining, and innovative media and marketing strategies and planning. iSOCRATES offers a full range of end-to-end data and analytics as well as media and marketing services.

While the technology we use and the complexity of the data we analyze continues to change and mature, our mission has remained the same…create more profitable prospect/visitor/customer/member/donor relationships through analytics, marketing and advertising technology, data-driven strategy, and media and marketing planning and execution.

iSOCRATES specialist teams work hard to ensure to create a collaborative environment where clients and partners talk candidly with senior leadership, develop insights with data scientists, executive and optimize tech integrations, and map out multichannel acquisition and activation solutions with our client engagement team. Our combined teams serve the needs of nonprofit and membership-based organizations such as museums, zoos, aquariums, associations, schools, and nonprofits of all types.

Membership and nonprofit organizations look to our teams to deliver insights about their prospects, visitors, customers, members, and benefactors. To make insights actionable, we build engagement strategies and multi-channel customer journey campaigns designed to turn prospects into visitors, visitors into customers, customers into members, and members into loyal donors.

The two classic problems faced by all non-profit and member-based organizations:

  1.  Acquiring new customers/members: which of your prospects look like your best members?
  2.  Retaining current customers/members: are there any members that are at risk for non-renewal?

Imaging a world where every visitor interaction becomes a captivating journey of discovery. For museums, zoos, aquariums, schools, associations, and other nonprofit and membership organizations, this transformation is possible through the power of data.

Our Approach to Delivering Results

How well do you really know your visitors and members?

Understanding who your visitors and members are:

  • Demographic data will assist in better understanding who are your best members
  • Determine how big a role does location impact decision to become a member

Understanding your “ideal” members’ interests:

  • Appending interest data to your current members allows you to focus in on what’s important to your ideal member

Understanding how your members are engaging:

  • Renewing members usually visit early and often as they begin their memberships
  • Repeat visits are vital for renewal and the period over which they take place is equally important
  • Are members visiting your website, have they opted-in and open your emails?

Profiling and Segmentation are tools that will enable you to answer these questions.
