Constant Contact Product Review

As a Certified Partner, Constant Contact is one of my favorite tools.

Not just because I love email marketing and it is so effective, but because it is a great tool that you can use to integrate your marketing across platforms.

It’s a singular tool that you can use to track all of your marketing efforts.

Here are my 7 favorite things about Constant Contact:

  1. It has an easy drag-and-drop email builder. I do not need to know how to code to create great look emails.
  2. I can grow my list with amazing tools built-in from pop-ups on your website, to inline forms on your website and even a text to join feature.
  3. I can segment contacts and easily email the segment based on their activities like:
    • People who opened specific emails or a specific email
    • If they did not open emails
    • If they have a tag in their profile
    • and more.
  4. I can create landing pages that will provide leads for my business.
  5. I can post to my social media pages and see it all in one calendar, all for one price.
  6. I can automate my emails with an automated email series.

There are other tools too, like the website builder, but overall, Constant Contact is a great one-stop-shop for managing all your digital marketing needs.
