  • Coupons let you offer a special discount for your fans.
  • Downloadable Content will let you give your fans something on the spot that they can download and enjoy, like a free song or recipe.
  • Sweepstakes promotions will let you offer your fans a chance to win something great! (And no worries, Constant Contact will choose the winner for you so it is fair and random!)

So what are you waiting for?! Start creating a coupon for your Facebook fans and potential new Facebook fans today! 


You signed up for our Email Package because you were only at first sending out Email Campaigns. But now you want to host an Event & send out more than just an announcement. You want to handle all of your Event Promotion & Registration from right within your Constant Contact account. Or maybe you want to run an Offer or Promotion.   Constant Contact has these tools for you right within your account; we just have to activate them.


Here are some things you should know before getting started going beyond the Email Campaign:


  • One-Time Plus Campaigns are a la carte; each Plus Campaign will cost you $50 for the duration of the Campaign and will appear in your billing as such
  • If you have a Prepayment on your account, we will deduct the One-Time Plus Campaign cost from it. This will cause your Prepayment to run out sooner.
  • You will be prompted to pay for your One-Time Campaign after you have gone through the creation flow and are ready to publish
  • Depending on the Campaign you add, reporting may vary. For example, Event reporting is only available for 185 days from Publish date.
  • Plus Campaigns are notated by Green Asterisks

Now that we got the formalities out of the way, let’s find out what a One-Time Plus Campaign can do for you!


With Plus Campaigns, you will get the option to create an Event and have a Landing Page. You can set up a Donation to raise money for your business or nonprofit!  You can survey or poll your contacts about your recent campaign or about a promotion you had.  Ever thought about having a trackable coupon that just went out to your contact list?  This is the place to get this done and so much more!

*Note: If you find that you are running multiple plus campaigns, you may want to upgrade to our Email Plus Package. You will have unlimited access to Plus Campaigns under this package. 


What is the difference between a Campaign and a Plus Campaign?

A Campaign is a newsletter/announcement/letter that is sent from your account.  Plus Campaigns include Landing pages.  This enables your audience to perform various tasks related to the campaign (i.e. Sign Up, Register, Purchase, etc.) and for you to get reporting from those campaigns.  You will get reporting on Campaigns, like opens and clicks; while with a Plus Campaign you can see Revenue Earned, Registrations, etc. (reporting is based off of campaign type).  We call this “End-To-End Reporting - Detailed tracking and reporting on all of your campaigns, with tips on what to do next.   See everything from campaign highlights down to every action: who clicked, opened, forwarded, and shared your emails. Plus Campaigns also provide stats on purchases, registrations, redemptions, new customer growth, and more.”


So what kinds of Plus Campaign are available?
The Plus Campaigns available within your accounts are:


      - Facebook Fan Promotions Run a promotion (sweepstakes, coupon or download content) on Facebook to grow your fans and extend your reach on social!

      - Trackable Coupons Offer coupons that you can track, redeem in your account, while your audience can share through email and social.

      - Local Deals Offer a deal for purchase and sharing by your contacts.

      - Donations – Raise money for your cause by promoting your campaign through email and social.Check out this post on Dontation Campaigns!

      - Event Promotion & Registration – Promotion, Registration, Payment & Reporting for your event… all in one place.

      - Surveys – Get feedback, segment your audience, and targeting your emails are just a couple of ways to use our Surveys. 

      - Polls  - Want to engage with your audience, but not with a full survey, as a poll questions via email, social or on the web. 


Why do I need Plus Campaigns?
Plus Campaigns let you run the show and have more potential for reporting, revenue, and information in general.  For the event that you are going to have, wouldn't it be easier to have your Promotional Emails, Registration, Payment, and Management all within one account?  Want to run a local deal for your customers and grow your audience?  We've got the tools to help you and your business grow your reach and manage your current audience all at the same time. 


How can I get a Plus Campaign?
When choosing to Create a New Campaign Plus Campaigns are designated by a green box with an asterisk.  Here’s what it will look like:
