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.

Very helpful

We have been using the CC for a while now. We found the platform very user-friendly and driving the results. However, there are some areas for improvements in design and reporting features.

We recently upgraded our free account and are planning to use CC for our business to business emails. (Our customer emails are a bit more complicated.) We are putting together lists of teachers, small businesses, churches and others for external marketing.

I’ve been using Constant Contact’s email automation for about 6 months now. I love the company; the “Early Success” team provides awesome customer support.

Still trying to figure out all the additional features of Email-Plus and how it might help us.

A long-time user of Constant Contact for our non-profit organization, here.  Would love to share input regarding new/upgraded features and three months of Email Plus would really help our organization.  Thanks!

One of my frustrations with Constant Contact has been the lack of TABS.  Is this ever going to be added?

Occasional Visitor

My  little Company has used Constant Contact off and on for years. We have also advised clients during consulting the importance of email correspondence and using a reputable company, and to this day recommending Constant Contact.. The additions and  improvements have changed over the years and are so valuable. Plus, Constant Contact always remembers you too. With that to note, we have rarely had a unsubscriber and I credit that to our professional and customer service excellence and Constant Contact fills a huge part of our communication skills with both Professional and Consumer clients. Thank you Constant Contact.

I would love to explore the features of email plus. I operate a small business as a 1 person team and it's really helpful to have automated emails that keep my clients interested and to get the attention of those who may have fallen by the wayside.

Hi @BarbaraW707 

 

I apologize for any convenience caused from this tab feature not being available in our system! Though it is not currently available, it is a feature request we are collecting feedback on. A feature request that I have tracked in your account and submitted to our engineers on your behalf. As a workaround in the meantime we have seen users copy text that includes a tab from an external source and into our editor. Doing this will allow our system to convert the tab to non-breaking spaces. You can also add underscores and change the font color to match the background color.
