Allow me to break the ice and introduce myself. Hi! You can call me Nick and I’m the Social Media & Content Manager for the Constant Contact Community. I’ve been with Constant Contact for over 8 years now and managing content here for most of that time. I actually started with our phone support department!

 

While I don't have a business of my own, one of the most rewarding aspects of working for Constant Contact is the opportunity to learn about and assist small businesses and nonprofit organizations that utilize our product. It's truly humbling to gain insight into the hard work and dedication that goes into bringing your ambitions to fruition.

 

When I’m not at work, I’m usually still in front of a screen. I’m a budding digital artist in my spare time. I try to rejuvenate my fried eyeballs with leisurely nature walks and hiking. I’ve also taken up rock climbing in recent years and mostly rely on my long, gangly arms to circumvent the carefully laid out routes.

 

And, I’m happy to say, my wife and I welcomed our first child in late 2023 and he’s been such a bundle of joy I really don’t care that I’ve barely slept in months. Really. Seriously…

 

I’m excited to hear from all of you and learn more about your unique stories and experiences!

Hi Nick,

I'm Moustapha, a new comer here at Constant Contact. I just started an online store on Shopify that sells diverse products in various niches such as home decor, fitness, electronics, cosmetics, gifts etc... I wanted to reach most people by having multiple different products, hoping that when someone visits my store online, they will see multiple stuff they like and hopefully make a purchase. 

I opened the store just 2 weeks ago, around the 13th of March, and so far 0 sale. lol 😂. I signed up here to get help with the email marketing, and any other help I can get from you to get me some sales.

I have a full time job as a Quality Assurance Specialist for a chemical manufacturing company, and I am currently on short-term disability, hence I have  lots of time to put into this business before I go back to my 9-5 job. 

Okay, I think I said enough about me, thanks and hoping to benefit from any help I can get. 

Thank you!

Moustapha

"Thanks" for saying "Hello" -- I'm new at this but have a "Great" New Method for helping all players struggling with the Golf Swing. The new method is called "Golf Archery Method" and I'm quite sure it's going to be around for quite some time! -- Of course everyone knows the principle but it's never been applied to Golf in the way I've discovered. -- I'm a research fellow and have studied the swing for "many moons!" -- Frankly, the Golf Archery Method ("GAM") can be learned and put in play in "Less Than A Minute" and offers options for Smart Shot-Making that should have been discovered long before now. -- But, such as it is, it took "millennia" to discover the Earth is Round and why should it be any different in coming to terms with the elegant simplicity involved in golf! -- In short: I hope folks new in golf and "all" struggling players will visit GolfNucleus.com and start to improve "Immediately!" -- As Bobby Jones Said: "Golf is much more fun when played well". -- And that's what the Golf Archery Method can do in "No Time!" -- Believe it or not, "Every Word" in this message is true. --Dominick Esposito, PhD, Founder of Golf Archery Method, Former Head Teaching Coach, St. John's University.

Hello Nick,

I'm Tom and I'm the Adjutant for the Phoenix Chapter #1 of the Disabled American Veterans. The Chapter has been around since 1920 and I've been a life member of Chapter 1 for 24 years. I followed a very dedicated person into this role who was very adept in digital marketing and social media platforms. I am unfortunately quite a novice in this regard. I work on computers well over the standard 2,080 hours a year but I don't spend much time in the social spaces. My goal for the chapter is bringing it to the forefront of the Veteran Community in the Phoenix Metro area. I don't have the faintest idea how to get us there but I am willing to try. I have a family, a full time job and I'm remodeling a house right now so, my time is precious and there is little of it that I can spare. I know, that's a LOT.

Hey there Nick, how are you? Hi, I'm Olivia, a newcomer here at Constant Contact. I've recently launched an ecommerce store using AliDropship on WordPress. I'm also the founder of Panache Luxury Furniture Store, an ecommerce business I started back in 2017. Balancing a full-time job at Butterball LLC and working towards completing my BA degree in computer science and engineering by December 2024, I've realized that I no longer want to work for someone else. Instead, I want to work for myself, support my family, and enjoy my freedom and time with loved ones and friends.

 

My business is currently worth a 4-digit figure, and that reason being I wasn't solely focused on the business, so it got pushed back. However, I eventually realized that it was time for a change, and change can be good. Although I try to be patient and not think too badly of my business's worth, I have hope that it will grow with time. Because my goal is to increase my monthly earnings, so that I can quit my job fully and focus on serving my customers. I've already built a solid foundation in marketing, which has helped me accumulate a business worth 4 digits. With tools like Constant Contact, I know I can expand and grow Panache Luxury even further. Working for myself and depending on myself will be a humbling and refreshing experience. I'm excited about the journey ahead and the satisfaction of knowing how far I've come and how much I can achieve on my own terms. 

 

And when it's not all about business and money, it's time for family—a loving time that I cherish the most. My family includes myself, my baby brother, my mommy, and our Frenchie baby. I love spending time with them, doing practically anything, but especially enjoy cooking, having movie dinners, and shopping when we get the chance. We're mostly homebodies, so I truly appreciate the moments when we get out to feel the sun. It's also a time when I can meditate and unwind. Hah! Oh well...

 

Wishing you all the best for success and prosperity in your endeavors. May your sales soar and bring you joy and fulfillment in every way!✌️🙏😉💛

HI. My name is Lorraine MItchell

 

I have been running a free self help website for over 10 years driven by what my horse taught me and my passion to work with horses and people doing Equine Assisted Learning. 

I lost my horse in 2017 and with her I thought my chance of achieving my dream. When a year or so later my husbands "bad back" was found to be a serious illness and he was recognised as disabled. I became his full time carer and with health problems of my own, I could see no way I would ever achieve my dream.

Last year all that changed when I discovered Pete Cohen, Bob Proctor and Dr Joe Dispenza. The things I learned from them changed my life. I was given good support and advice and in February this year I turned my hobby website into a Charitable Company. Dolly Communication CIC. I couldn't afford the horses to do the EAL but planned to sell on-line courses. I qualified as a life coach and am writing a self help book. "Change your MIndset to Change your LIfe". Things are taking too long, so this month I got insurance and paid my subscription to the MCA who certified my life coaching and now I am Launching myself as an Empowerment and Mindset Coach. 

My husband and I are still on benefits until I retire next April so all the money I earn will go into the business until I can be sure that I can afford to keep the four horses I dream of for at least 6 months. Once I know I can do that I will start looking for a yard to set up the Dolly Communication Equine Assisted Development Centre, find suitable therapy horses ( non ridden) and start to bond with them and let them settle in before I start doing mindfullness and energy work with them. 

I am still working on the book and the course and sidetracked into a level two Digital Marketing course because I knew I needed the skills. I guess I am wasting time and money now because it looks like Constant Contact can help me with what I need. 

Thank you Constant Contact!

I would like to pay a years subscription before my 30 day trial runs out, so that will probably come out of my first paying client. 

Now I need an email list. 

Thank you Constant Contact I'm hoping my social media campaigns will bring in those first paying clients.

I forgot to mention my horse was called Dolly and I am 65 years old. I intend to make Dolly Communications Equine Assisted Development a name that will not fade. I have seen so many EAL businesses rely on charity hand outs for working with children and disappear after a few years. I have always wanted to help adults like myself, who grew up with no self-confidence, no self-worth, and have never achieved their passion. I believe we all have a calling in life and until we find it and follow it, we will never be truly happy. 

I want to help people find their passion and their inner power to follow their dreams. It's never too late. If you do what you love you will never work again.

Thank you for reading

Lorraine.

Hi, my name is Patti.  I'm a health and wellness professional focusing on food and nutrition as medicine and very passionate about helping people achieve optimal health and well-being in ways that are best for them.  I've been operating my own business now for the past 20+ years and feel blessed that God has sustained me this long.  The work I do is my purpose and my ministry.  I'm also passionate about learning everthing I can about  how nutrition affects and heals our bodies - physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  

 

When I have the opportunity, I thoroughly enjoy travelling, sports, and expressing my creativity through art, interior design, and fashion.  I love the outdoors, and enjoy long walks on the beach or whereever my legs and feet carry me.

 

I'm looking to grow my business on line and become a bit more savvy and comfortable with using social media for business purposes primarily.

Welcome @KendraH067 

Welcome to the community! It's great to hear about your daughter and her friend's incredible talent and dedication to basketball. It sounds like they have a bright future ahead of them! 🏀

 

I completely understand your desire to support your daughter's dreams. It's wonderful to see the community rallying behind her, and I'm sure many people would be eager to support her journey.

 

To get the word out and find sponsors, here are a few suggestions:

  1. Use social media: share videos and photos of her playing basketball on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Use hashtags relevant to basketball and sponsorship opportunities to reach a wider audience.
  2. Reach out to local businesses: approach local businesses, especially those with ties to sports or community involvement, and explain your daughter's situation. They may be willing to sponsor talented young athletes in their community.
  3. Start a crowdfunding campaign: consider creating a crowdfunding campaign on platforms like GoFundMe or Kickstarter. Share your story and explain how the funds will help support your daughter's basketball journey.

Your daughter's determination and talent deserve to be recognized and supported, and I'm confident that with the help of the community, you'll be able to find the support she needs.

HI. My nickname is Melon... from Mary Ellen. Last name is Dash (really). For over 40 years I've had a swimming school only for adults who are afraid in water. Adults overcome their fear and become able to be peaceful in deep water in a few weeks. We're in Florida now and we have a few other locations nationally. Miracle Swimming.

 

I've been a Constant Contact client for years. Decades?  It allows me to be in touch in a personal way to all my mailing lists. I can count on it. I appreciate the customer service, too.

 

What do I like most about my business? It works where all else fails. It feels good to be a leader, to have reliable answers, to see our students thrilled every time we teach a course.

 

When I'm not at work--which is rare--I'm in my yard, at the beach, outside somewhere or SCUBA diving.

 

Nick, I like the way you wrote your introduction.
