Welcome! Introduce Yourself!

Hello and welcome to the Other Industries Hub on the Constant Contact Community!

 

If you use Constant Contact, this hub is for you. The purpose is to create a space where our users can congregate and share notes, find resources, and decompress within the busy world of online marketing.

 

We will work to keep this space stocked with new resources as we come across them, but as this space is for you, we encourage you to share your own findings!

 

The Community Guidelines for the rest of the Community also apply here. You can review them here and the link is always available at the bottom of every Community page. 

 

Let's get to know each other and start some conversations. What do you use Constant Contact for? What successes have you experienced with our product or online marketing in general? Is there a feature of the product that you find yourself constantly using?

Hello!  My name is Jodi Lloyd and I have just created an account today for our church. I am so excited to be able to connect with people in a more efficient way, especially during this time when people are not all together in one location. We are hosting so many events (mostly virtual) and Constant Contact will be key in the success of those events.

 

I am interested in learning how other churches are using Constant Contact?

 

Blessings!

Jodi

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm Arnita Brown-Lewis, I am owner of Nita Nae's Books. I'm an Author and a new blogger. I join CC a month ago and it's been a great help in giving me ideas to attract more readers/subscribers, but it's a slow process. I've been using the email and social media postings. 

 

I was creating an ad campaign for Facebook, but I'm having trouble with the imaging section. My image is the required ratio and sizing, but it's not accepting the image and I can't finish without an image. It's been a little frustrating.  

 

Glad to be here and look forward to a prosperous union.

 

Thanks,

 

Arnita

Hi @ArnitaB0,

 

We saw you posted elsewhere with a similar question and we've inquired there. But just to be safe, are you receiving any error messages when you attempt to upload? Is it saying the file size is too large?

Hello! I recently took over Constant Contact responsibilities for our non-profit and have been discovering all the resources that are available here, including this forum. Our organization has been using Constant Contact for several years, and we are pleased with the ease of use and the insights into how our emails have reached our audience. I downloaded the Market Guide for Non-Profits, and I see that a free webinar on this topic is now posted. The more I dig into Constant Contact, the more resources I find. Thank you!

Hello Everyone!

 

Great to be here...

 

As an author and speaker, I use Constant Contact for workday emails called "Coaches Corner", "Workday Wake-up", and various other themes.

 

Recently, I have been including updates on my kidney donation to a fellow businesswoman in the local Tampa Bay area, too.

 

Here's to everyone making the most of your week ahead...

 

Cheers,

Debbie

Hello!

 

Angela from DetailXPerts here. We've been using Constant Contact for many years now and we're pretty happy with its features and options. We mainly use it to send our email newsletters to 3,800+ subscribers. Some of them subscribe to get tips and discount coupons for our steam auto detailing services and others follow us for news and updates in the detailing industry. Still others sign up to receive our franchise newsletter, which goes out twice per month.

We're very happy to see our audience grow steadily thanks to Constant Contact's ideas, tips, and subscribing options - for example, we used the option to get subscribers via SMS by placing the number on the back of our business cards and we did, in fact, get a few!

 

Regards to all,

Angela

Hi!

 

I'm the Admin for a local Audio Visual Company! I'm excited to use Constant Contact to make a personal connection with our clients. 

I really like that CC is easy to use and navigate. I'm the only one working on marketing info, so it's nice to have a simple interface to get updates out without spending my entire week building am email.

Hi Caitlin,

 

I'm a volunteer with the "Friends of Benson Park", a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organ. located in Hudson, NH.

My role as the Board Secretary has lead me to Constant Contact which we use as a newsletter & email tool to connect with our constituency.  We've had good success so far using CC and I'd like to learn more about designing templates and also integration with social media.

Looking forward to learning more!

Thanks!

Hi everyone,

 

I'm relatively new to Constant Contact and have been using it since last December. My company, Virginia Abrasives, has been using it many years. We are one of only five companies in the US creating sandpaper here in America and we're entering our 50th year in business. I've learned a lot and have gotten better. 

 

Thanks!
