We are a non-profit organization hoping to preserve and promote acoustic music in our community in Frederick Maryland. I am very new to marketing our organization (honestly, I have no idea what I'm doing) but I am willing to give it a try. Right now I am just getting acquainted with the workings of Constant Contact. I sure hope that can help us as we are experiencing growing pains as an organization.

Hi, I'm Marty Demarest - My business is Milne Online Marketing.  I've been using Constant Contact from the days when it was almost exclusively text based so I've grown with the program as it's developed.  My background is human services, and I got into web creation for the families of the developmentally disabled I worked with and next thing I know it's 25 years later and several hundred web sites and thousands of email campaigns later.  For the past 22 years online marketing has been my full time second career.  For the past 8 years I've worked exclusively on Constant Contact projects on the notion is better to be really good at one thing.  During this time I've managed some 150 projects and 90 Constant Contact accounts with emphasis onlead generation, strategic planning, and the use of analytics for continued precision.  My background as a writing teacher and my gradates degrees in psychology find use in the psychology of marketing and communication. 


Even though it's been a long time, the fun and creativity of email marketing never gets stale, and I'm as excited about each piece as I was when I began.  Working with a wide variety of clients means learning new fields, target audiences, and messaging.   I love that Constant Contact keeps evolving and adding new features as tools to improve effectiveness.  

Hi, I am David

I've been self employed since 1985, but when it comes to this newest venture, I'm flopping like a fish out of water. I now have an online directory and have several ideas about marketing, but the driving traffic is going to be the challenge, as I'm marketing to businesses for the income, but I need to market to the consumers as well, because without the consumer there would not be any business.


In the past I have been an auto mechanic, concrete contractor, excavator, and an over the road trucker. I'm an old dog trying to learn new tricks, "but you know it don't come easy". Thanks Ringo.


I've been to China 3 times as my wife is from northeast China, and that was like landing on another planet, but it surely broadened my scope of God's creation.

Looking forward to any insight I can find here.

I'm Brian Perry, and I'm on contract with Ka Hale A Ke Ola Homeless Resource Centers in Wailuku, Maui. Our 37-year-old agency's mission is to break the cycle of homelessness in Maui County. I want to use Constant Contact to create and email quarterly newsletters to our stakeholders, including staff, donors and community and government partners. My question is whether anyone knows if there's a way to do wrap-around text with photos and graphics, either flush left or right.




I hope all of you are having a wonderful day!

Hello Everyone,

I go by Izzy, and my educational goals are to pursue a bachelor's degree in Entrepreneurship with a concentration in Small Business. My current very first business venture I decided to pursue being a Project Coordinator and Event Planner. I have obsessively had this business idea in mind for five years, but it's been licensed for 3 years. I am currently residing in Wisconsin with intentions on opening a second business in Texas. I am all for celebrating people and going above expectations when planning events. I would have to say that I get the most pleasure from surprising myself with what I am capable of accomplishing.

Thrilled to have you here @TheChristianMissionUSI and @IsmaelL514!
