ConstantContact Main Features
A positive review we found about ConstantContact
I use CC to handle our vast list of contacts and submit email updates. It’s great to segment our list— from communications to fundraising, from general interest. The automated features are good, especially because it won’t allow the same email to appear twice in the same inbox. This fuses multiple contacts as well. We’re using it throughout the company. Constant contact is good for combining duplicate addresses, updating your address book, providing reliable open rate and detailed reports, and enabling you to segment wide email lists.
A bad review we found about ConstantContact
Allowances. In addition to the account owner, there are basically two types of permissions: project creator and account manager. It would be good to have more granular control over what users can do, as account manager allows users a lot of freedom, but to deal with contacts, plan a send, etc. The other thing that I don’t like is how high the price ramps up. I feel that Constant Contact is the most stable system after using Emma and MailChimp. But it’s expensive.
