Files, such as PDF's, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations, can't be added as attachments to your campaign email, but they can be hosted online and then linked. This allows your contacts, who may not have compatible software, to read it and also keeps a large file size from making your email undeliverable.
You have a few options for hosting your files online:
Once your document is hosted you can copy the URL and then insert it into your Email campaign, Survey Invitation or Event-related email.
For our 2GE users:
Place your cursor over the block where you want to add the document and click Edit this block.
Place your cursor where you want the link to appear in the block or highlight the text you want to turn into the document link and click Insert.
Note: If your document is already hosted on the web, click the Insert Link button in the editor to add the document's URL.
Place your cursor over the Document Link icon and click the Plus button.
If your document:
Click Insert. Click Save to continue editing your email.
I am an instructor and plan to use this type of product to stay in touch with my students. Part of my courses requires me to sent files to those that have taken the class and or provide a place where they can log-in and download those files.
Will Constant Contact permit or does it provide for group e-mails with file attachments? Or can it be set up to allow the groups to sign-in and download the files?
Thanks for any suggestions,
CC doesn't permit attachments, but they do have suggestions for how to deal with this. Click "Help & Support" tab, then click Frequently Asked Questions, then type "attachments" into the search box. There are several articles on this issue with solutions.
Is it possible to add and attachment to a CC email. I have to send a personalized "letter" email to over 150 people and need to attach
a sample letter we want them to send to their clients. Is this possible?
I do not think you can have attachments because of the SPAM issue. You can put a word doc on your server or create a HTML page and then link either of them from your email.
I usually host a document and then insert the link. :)
Atachements are definitely NOT possible. The other responses above are the work arounds
