Creative Mail and Constant Contact

For those of us who run Wordpress sites there seems to be some confusion as to how Creative Mail works with Constant Contact, when installing Constant Contact email you are offered the Creative Email plugin, at that point it looks like something that will enable you to create more attractive emails coming out of wordpress, however, once you install the plugin and visit the Create eMail site to setup, it looks like it is actually competing with Constant Contact and is not an enhancement product but rather redundancy in the same business flow, creating contacts in the platform to be marketed to in some manner.  Can you PLEASE point me to a resource that makes it clear as how to use Creative eMail in conjunction with ConstantContact, what are the benefits, integration points, shared data, etc, etc.?

Hi @NeslyO , 

 

I do apologize for the confusion! Creative Mail is actually powered by Constant Contact, but is actually a more rudimentary, limited version of Constant Contact. It's not meant to work as an enhancement or in conjunction with the Constant Contact product, but instead of it for those who are not already Constant Contact customers. If you are trying to integrate Constant Contact with your WordPress site, you'd want to use the WordPress plugin.
