Seeing is believing, right? But how do you go from seeing to believing? Building your brand and getting your message out there is one half of the initiative, but ultimately what we want is for our audience to engage with us. How do we create opportunities for engagement?

 

Email Plus. The plan that takes your marketing to the next level. Email Plus offers a whole suite of products and features you can’t access in the standard plan There’s a lot to dig into, but let’s focus on a couple of great features this time around: Email Automation and Action Blocks.

 

Email Automation

 

For most small business owners, marketing can take a backseat to actually running a business. You only have so much time in a day. We say, let it take a backseat! Email Automation is a way for businesses to stay engaged with their contacts without having to be chained to the computer all the time. Some ways in which you can engage your audience with automation include:

 

  • Welcome Emails - Introduce your brand with a big splash, welcoming your new audience members to the fold. You can craft multiple Welcome Emails if you have a diverse contact portfolio and set the email to trigger when they sign up.

 

  • Birthdays/Anniversaries - Who doesn’t like being celebrated? Of course, if you cater to hundreds or thousands of people it can be hard to keep track of all those birthdays! Email Plus makes it easy with birthday reminders and anniversary callouts (i.e. as when they first joined your mailing list). Use these as opportunities to offer special promotions!

 

Action Blocks

 

The email is opened, but how do you prolong the moment before you end up in the pile of read emails? Action Blocks drive… action! Whether you’re launching your monthly newsletter or promoting an upcoming event, Action Blocks create opportunities for your audience to follow up with you. For example:

 

  • Eventbrite Action Block - Integrate with your Eventbrite account and drop your upcoming event right into your email! Reporting allows you to see how many tickets were generated from your email promotion. 

 

  • Donation Action Block - This block is especially helpful to nonprofits. It may look simple on the outside, but after clicking, the contact is taken to a customized landing page where they can make a donation. Drive traffic to the causes that matter most to you! 


Visibility is great, but engagement drives results! Try out Email Plus today and take your email marketing to the next level.

We are a new Constant Contact user and have enjoyed the results!

Your email has come just at the right time.  We are launching our first "honorary" event for our foundation in March 2020 and knowing that EventBrite would be a good place to capture people's attention to registering...yet we have our own website with registration options there...Using CC email - should we use both ??? eventbrite and our website??  Can't wait to see more strategies to apply.

I love the "reporting" feedback with all the emails sent.  So powerful.  Yes, we need more education - so that might be our next step in using your services.  Email PLUS.

Constant Contact has been a big help for years for the non-profit organization for which I'm the webmaster and de facto communications officer.  Constant Contact enables us to send a variety of email messages on different topics to different lists of email addresses, and combinations of lists.  Email messages and contact data are easy to manage!

Interested to hear more about Email Plus.

Thank you. I think CC is the best. I have been having difficulty finding time to create an email campaign. Maybe 2020 will be the year for me and my business. Let me know if I am a winner.

Hi! My company just made the switch to CC from Drip.  It has been a wonderful transition.  We find CC easy to use and navigate.  The program has everything we need for our email marketing! So pleased!

I am just a babe in the woods, but my co-workers think I have been using Constant Contact for years.

You have made it very easy to do my job, but as I said I am a babe in the woods.  It sure would be helpful to win the prize to really impress my employers.  

Thank You Constant Contact!!!

Hello There! I am new to constant contact and would love to see what email plus has to offer!

 

Happy Holidays!

Occasional Visitor

My name is Tony. I am the Commander of an American Legion Post. I use CC to communicate upcoming events to our membership and will begin using it to send out newsletters. I believe with Email plus I could take email marketing to a different level within the organization.

Occasional Visitor

Email plus sounds great but being a very small business we would love to win those three months.

Occasional Advisor

I think we are eligible.  Thanks for everything this year, CC.  I hope we win!

 

I've really enjoyed learning about using the service for the newsletters for our association.  I hope to see the Event functionality improve, with different options for alternative types of ticketing and pricing options (i.e., Single day and multiple day ticket options, member/non-member pricing available with one event listing.)

Occasional Visitor

It definitely sounds interesting and I'd definitely be interested in learning more and giving it a try.  Time is always an issue, so finding ways to help with that would be great!

Occasional Visitor

We are loving CC and are interested in seeing what Email Plus has to offer!!!

Hi @DawnF547 

 

The good news is our segmentation feature can do exactly this! You can create a segment of contacts who have not opened any email sent from your account in the last 3-6 months.

I've been steadily growing my subscriber list with Constant Contact!
