Twitter Lead Cards and Constant Contact

Has anyone been successful linking Twitter lead generation cards to Constant Contact? Twitter indicates that Constant Contact may support integration (https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170390#Lead_Generation_Card_Endpoint_Providers) but I have not been able to figure out how to get it to work.  I keep getting an authorization error.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Got it to work perfectly with MailChimp, but we'd hate to switch.

Hi Patricia,

 

Unfortunately I do not have access to a twitter account with advertising enabled, so I am not able to view that article. If you can explain what you are trying to do when you get an authorization error and provide some of the details, I can likely help you to resolve it!

Thanks for your reply.

 

Here is what Twitter says:"

 

  1. The main requirement for the endpoint partner is to host a secure https URL where the leads data can be submitted by Twitter. Partner will need to provide Twitter with a HTTPS endpoint, either GET or POST but preferably POST.

  2. The data will be sent via https:// GET or POST to an endpoint that you provide in the ads.twitter UI. Only HTML response codes are accepted and the following codes are considered successful: 200, 201, 202, 204, 301, 302.

  3. The request will contain 3 fields: User provided name, screen-name (@handle) and user email address.  All fields are supplied from the logged-in user's profile. There is nothing for the user to fill out.

  4. In the Twitter ads UI, you can also map each of the 3 data fields to their custom key names (for example name to full_name, email to email_address.). The default parameter names are: "name", "email", "screen_name”.

  5. Additionally, you can supply up to 10 hidden key-value pairs which will be sent with the request (for example source=TWITTER, campaign=lead_gen_test, UID=1234). These will be appended to the request URL.

  6. All of these technical specs as well as creative specs (image, text, CTA button text) are tied to each card with a unique URL. In other words that URL, when tweeted and viewed on an official Twitter client, will always show the same card. And the card will submit lead data - even if the tweet was organic and not promoted."

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did want to give an update to this.  We have worked with Twitter on getting a Twitter Lead Gen Card app so that our customers can use this feature.  We are in the process of developing this, however it has not been completed.  We are hoping to get this done soon so our customers can take advantage of it.  I tried to click to where you said Constant Contact was a supported application but was unable to get into that area (like Elijah, I don't have access to a Twitter account that can use Lead Gen Cards). 

 

We'll get in touch with Twitter to see if we can get that updated and continue to work on the Lead Gen Card app so that you can take advantage of this soon!  Thanks for sharing your interest, let us know if there's any other tools you use that we can look into integrating with.

Thanks for this follow-up.  It says that Constant Contact may support Twitter Lead Generation cards.  See the attached screenshot.

 

I look forward to this feature being rolled out.

Thanks for the update.  Looks like Twitter put that up there without talking to us first.  We'll reach out to them.  Will also update once we have a Lead Gen Card integration complete.

Did this get completed?

Sorry to share bad news but after investigating this with Twitter it was more work than we were initially estimating and we did not move forward with the project.  At this time, we're tracking customer feedback to see if there is demand for this and will prioritize the project accordingly.  Will record your interest but so far we haven't heard much demand from our customer base with the exception of the handful of requests in this thread.

We at YWCA Toronto would be very interested! This is a tool that makes subscribing to a Constant Contact newsletter extraordinarily easy for the user and it would be of great value to us.
