Constant Contact - The Best Digital Marketing Tool for Your Business

Constant Contact enables me to easily and efficiently produce high-quality marketing pieces, manage data and see at a glance what is working and what isn't, for my business. Even the free version provides everything necessary to pick up and run right out of the gate!

Pros

Constant Contact's user-friendly platform is my go-to for all things digital marketing. From designing marketing pieces to importing/exporting contacts, data organization, customization, reporting and analytics, social media posts and more - there is nothing that it cannot do!

Cons

I would like to see more customizable features added.

Efficient but Limited

Pros

I like that I am able to import templates I build in BEE Pro's email builder. Maintaining customer lists is easy. The company is well-known enough to have extensive plug-ins for both WordPress and WIX sites.

Cons

Their things make their email campaign builder limited: no mobile design front-end editor, no ability to customize email width, or easily affect padding and margins.

Also, it is weird that you have to contact their customer service to remove their logo at the bottom of the email - even if you pay for the pro plans.

Reasons for Choosing Constant Contact

We are a school, who's SIS system will not integrate with other software. So, we constantly have to upload lists to our email servicer. Mail chimp kept flagging our account - got very annoying.

Served the purpose

At first constant contact helped us grow our business and smoothly run our events (car shows, demonstrations and classes) however the extreme price change and surprise fees ultimately lead us to stop using this product as we were no longer benefitting enough from it.

Pros

I liked the event management feature, it was actually very helpful with invitations and ticket sales.
I also liked the ability to reach a large number of people. I like the scheduling feature as well. You can integrate with social media. The autoresponder is helpful and saves time.

Cons

The initial price is affordable but you're limited to a small number of subscribers. Once you've surpassed that the prices increase dramatically and it's just not worth it. The automation features are really lacking.
There are also surprise fees and charges that caused me to lose trust.

Constant Contact is a Great Product for Digital Marketing, especially for a Novice!

We highly recommend Constant Contact for any small to medium business or for anybody who is just starting out with digital marketing. It can seem overwhelming, but Constant Contact makes it simple to get out of the gate fast and with ease. You'll see the results.

Pros

Constant Contact is very easy to use and integrates with so many tools you are already using. Deployment and training are simple. There are lots of features and tools to measure the effectiveness of your digital campaign. It's the best starter software out there.

Cons

There aren't really any features we don't like with Constant Contact. They seem to evolve with the market and that is a plus.

Constant Contact helps our small business to grow and reach potential patients on social media. It helps us reach an unlimited number of potential new patients and helps us stay better connected to our current patients as well.

Pros

I like how we can stay in contact with our patients in a variety of different ways. We can send out campaigns for specials we are having and keep our patients updated if there is weather or illness related closures.

Cons

Integrating this software with our current patient software took a little bit of creativity and
work, but once we had it all figured out it was a great fit.
