Are you looking to host an event and need a simple and efficient way to create, manage, and promote it? Look no further than Constant Contact's event tool. With this powerful tool, you can easily set up your event by adding basic details like date and location, create tickets and promo codes, customize your registration form, set up payment methods, and activate your event.



Event basics: When you create an event in Constant Contact, the first step involves filling out the essential information about your event, such as:


  • Event Title
  • Event Description
  • Image or logo (optional but recommended)
  • Type of Event
  • Location 
  • Date and time


You can also provide contact information for attendees to reach out for any queries. This section helps set the foundation for your event and provides attendees with key details.


Tickets, add-ons, & codes: In this step, you can create and manage event tickets, add-ons, and promo codes. Tickets allow you to control access to your event and set prices if it's a paid event. Add-ons are additional items or services that attendees can purchase along with their tickets. Promo codes are discount codes that attendees can use during registration to avail discounts or reveal hidden tickets. This step helps you customize the ticketing process and offer incentives to attendees.


Form setup: Here, you can create and customize the registration form for your event. You can choose to collect information from the primary contact (the person registering) or from each attendee individually. The form can include standard fields like name and email, as well as custom fields to gather specific information. You can also provide an option for registrants to sign up for your marketing communications. Customizing the registration form allows you to gather the necessary information from attendees and tailor it to your event's needs.


Payments: In this step, you can choose the currency for payments and select the payment methods you'll accept from attendees. Constant Contact integrates with PayPal and Stripe, allowing you to connect your accounts and accept payments securely. You can configure payment options like credit/debit cards, Venmo, or Pay Later (depending on eligibility). Setting up payment methods ensures a smooth and secure payment process for attendees.



Once you've completed the previous steps, you're ready to activate your event and make it live. Activating the event allows you to start accepting registrations and promoting your event. You can activate the event from the event creation page, event dashboard, or campaign list. If any required information is missing, an activation checklist will guide you to complete the necessary fields. After activation, you can share the event's landing page URL and registration URL to start promoting and accepting registrations.
