Newbie seeks web site advice


Newbie seeks web site advice

Hi everyone... I'm exec director for a nonprofit trade association and joined CC in January. I've sent out two newsletters, several bulletins and am working on a third newsletter. We eliminated our printed newsletter completely.


We've had a web site for several years but I am unhappy with the provider. I'm stuck with them by contract for another two or three years. Their utilities are clunky and every time I try to upload anything it goes into terminal "blue circle of death" mode, SO I'm wondering how - or if - I can set up a CC website/blog that people could easily find, to sort of side step the current web site.


As you might have guessed, I'm not exactly a techie.


Thanks for any advice y'all can share!

Re: Newbie seeks web site advice

I'm not sure why you have signed a contract. Hosting companies I've used have never requried one. Perhaps you did this with the company that built your website as a package deal? If so, I would try talking to them and discuss your frustrations. If they're a reasonable company that's also concerned about their reputation, maybe they can find a solution for you and/or let you out of the contract. 


I'm not sure about CC blog but you can set up a free blog easily through or There are also hundreds of free templates you can use online. 


I hope this helps!

Hi Judy,


Welcome to the Community!


Constant Contact does not currently offer a blogging program. I think your best bet at this time is to check out Wordpress. It's easy to use, from what I've heard.
