Your email marketing tools are excellent, but the editor for the landing page is about as bad an interface as I've ever seen. Outdated, not user-friendly, absolutely frustrating and maddening to use.
Thanks for posting this feedback! Are you using a theme in your Event that has a bottom border?
I had voiced this complaint before...and as I now have 2 event campaigns going-one for a free webinar and the other one for a program I'm offering on the webinar, I've been dealing with how awful the Landing page is to work in! The toolbox doesn't follow down the page, so one must scroll up to find it to do any editing, it doesn't have the easy way to work with images, like the emails do, it just is clunky and not very elegant at all.
I am thinking of using another Landing page system in the future due to this.I've been a CC customer since 2006...and some of the changes have been good, others not so good or I wasn't informed and had big issues with my email...and now even though I've used the events campaign in the past, it now seems very outdated.
I hope CC gets a better Landing page platform to work in.
I could not agree more! I am so frustrated and have wasted soooo much time. I did my evite in 10 minutes and it's free!!
Agreed; the landing page editor is very outdated and hard to work with. Most of the available themes are garish, and while there are options to customize your own theme, there are not enough options provided in order to create an event page that is attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Because the invitation emails are tied to the theme of the landing page, I also find the invitation emails to be fairly ugly. Off the top of my head, some of the features I find frustrating are:
--You center an image, despite selecting that as an option
-- There are no options to create a footer block-- You can't customize font size beyond the 7 sizes offered, and there aren't that many fonts to choose from I wish Constant Contact would take the time to update the event landing page editor because we're spending extra money for this product, and it just doesn't seem worth it.
Brighter colored and larger buttons that lead to links like registering an continuing to payment.
6 years later and it still hasn't been addressed. Event Campaigns on constant contact are some of the worst in the business and they refuse to update it or even address it
I know you all have an option to create emails within the events that can easily go to all registrants. I'd love to use that, but the format is completely different from your normal email creator. It's harder to work with and harder to make anything look good. It would make a lot more sense if the email creators were the same across the entire platform. Because you go from the easy to stuff to "Muahahaha! Surprise, now you need to create an email the digital equivalent of a rusty pocket knife!"
Why? Why would you purposely make things hard on people? Just let us use the real interface directly with the events.
