How to get the most out of your post on Share & Get Ideas?


As always, remember to be kind and courteous to your fellow Community members and the support staff. Feedback should be constructive! 


When creating a post, think about what kind of advice you want to get back from people. The more information you can provide about your goals and what you’ve done so far, the more potential and relevant feedback you may receive. Here are some examples: 


Websites & Landing Pages


  • Provide a URL of your website.
  • Call out specific sections of the website you want potential advisors to focus on.
  • Do the colors complement each other?
  • How is the text-to-image ratio?
  • Where should I place a sign-up form [applicable to websites] or other call-to-actions?
  • Is the navigation on the website confusing?


Email Campaigns


  • Share a screenshot of or provide a URL of your email campaign.
  • Give an idea of what kind of audience you are trying to reach.
  • Similar to websites, share what list growth tools you are utilizing or think you should use?
  • What have your Open rates been like so far? Bounces? Etc.
  • Design: Like websites, think about the text-to-image ratio, the complementary colors, organization of information, and call-to-actions.


Tips and Tricks for using Constant Contact


Constant Contact’s Knowledge Base and Blog offer a bevy of in-house how-tos and advice, but even we can’t think of everything (though we’re trying)! As the frontline users of Constant Contact, maybe you’ve thought of a cool workaround or trick to help in your workflow--share it here!


General Marketing Advice


General marketing advice is fairly broad in scope, so we want to nail down what you should consider if you’re asking or offering advice. Ideally, said advice should tie back to using Constant Contact, because that is what we’re all here for. However, Constant Contact services so many different industries, and not all marketing advice is one-shoe-fits-all. 


  • Clearly highlight in the post title what industry, if any, your advice is for.
  • Self-promotion is currently allowed in your Signature. Make sure to check out our guidelines for crafting a signature.
  • We can’t provide a fully comprehensive marketing plan, nor can we expect our fellow Constant Contact users to as well. 
  • This is more for targeted advice, like promoting a fundraising event or nurturing leads to grow your audience.
