advocacy modules?

Does anyone have good suggestions for how I might develop an advocacy module on my website which I could link to through constant contact?   I want my contacts to be able to easily write letters to their elected officials.

 

Thanks,'

Re: advocacy modules?

Hi,

 

I haven't seen anybody use us to collect letters.  The information we collect for contacts is limited to a certain number of fields, each with a relatively small amount of characters available compared to a letter, so I don't believe there is a good way to use only Constant Contact for what you are trying to do, as we can't store full letters from contacts.

 

You could use a form on your website, store the letter portion internally, and send the other contact information (like first and last name, and email address) to us through the API though.

Hi,

 

I just wanted to clarify a bit more.  What you are trying to do is usually referred to as transactional emails, and while we aren't set up to do that, you can see in this thread some solutions that have been discussed previously for sending transactional emails.
