Hi! Thanks for stopping by the 30 Days of Faves Blog Party hosted here at The Party Plan Coach! Each day Divas from around the World will be highlighting their favorite products from their Home Party Plan line. I will be highlighting my favorite business tips, tools, and inspiration for you to help build your Home Party Plan business. Be sure to check back every day in June to see what’s new!
Today I want to tell you about my favorite Email Marketing Tool – Constant Contact. Constant Contact launched in 1998 and is the favorite of nearly half a million small businesses for Email Marketing, Online Survey, and Event Marketing software. Because their focus is to help small businesses, their prices are economical and competitive – in fact, I am surprised they do not charge more for the awesome service they provide. With one monthly fee, you can send unlimited emails to your mailing list each month, keeping your name and contact information in front of your customers often. Oh, and did I mention it all fully integrates with all of your Social Media outlets?
The back end of Constant Contact software is very user friendly, and once you “get the hang of it” you can literally produce full color, professional HTML emails in seconds. You can include your own images, links, videos, and more! You can even send out surveys to your email list to get valuable feedback from your customers on their wants and needs, to help you run your business more successfully. They even have an app to send and manage emails directly from your smartphone!
Constant Contact also provides “opt-in” forms like the one you see in the right hand side of this website – allowing your customers to sign up easily to receive your emails. They also offer an “auto responder” that will send every new signup a welcome email that you can include a download for a free report, coupon, etc. Constant Contact gives you complete freedom to take care of your customers they way you want to!
Every email you receive through Party Plan Divas – including our Quick Tips Daily, eNewsletter, Specials, Announcements, invitation to the Diva Leadership Academy, invitation to Diva Success Seminar – they were ALL created with Constant Contact. (by the way – if you havent received these emails – be sure to sign up over in the right hand sidebar to be added to our email list! You will also receive my report- 10 Traits of a Party Plan Leader when you sign up! )
Constant Contact is a remarkable tool for keeping in touch with your customers on a professional, consistent basis, without the need for expensive software or designing. I absolutely love it, and will continue to use it for many years to come!
