The Money is in the List
Setting up an autoresponder can take some time depending on how quickly you can create your lead magnet and write drafts for the 3 emails that you should schedule as a basic setup. Then each week (as a minimum) as you get subscribers you will want to send out an update email to keep in contact.
It is crucial that you create a plan for collecting and supporting subscribers so that they can become a resource for promoting future products. This will create more organic traffic to your website.
We all know how it feels to have contact from someone you trust, you look forward to reading the tips in their emails and getting special prices on products.

Constant Contact also provides a lot of free training to you as a small business owner just starting out or for larger companies.
Keep it personal
Keep it personal when you write copy for your website or for an e-mail that you’ll be sending to your list. Consequently, I recommend that you write it as if you were having a conversation with your reader, face to face. Look for ways to incorporate your personal story and your personality into the copy.
I make my websites and e-letters personal by keeping my readers updated on where I am and what I’m doing. I also share information about my background.
Such as the fact that I’m a Professional Singer/Guitarist of over 45 years as well as a businesswoman. And I share my opinions on current events.
The bond this creates is extremely powerful.
You’ve probably noticed that emails that you enjoy opening are friendly and easy to read for this reason so take the time to develop a bond.
Start your e-mails with a quick personal update. Then go into your content or sales message. On your website, the “About” page is a great place for your personal background information. Include a picture, or pictures, of yourself (especially on the home page) to help put a face to the name. You could even have videos.
Stand Out From the Crowd
Customers often tell me that the reason they purchased something from me was not because of the offer. But as a result, they felt like they actually got to know me as a real human being.
Getting personal can help you and your website stand out in a cold and crowded digital world. While it’s true that “the money is in the list,” you’ll quickly discover that there is more money in your relationship with the people on that list.
Thank you for visiting, I would love it if you would leave a comment and share this blog thus helping other people.
6 thoughts on “Constant Contact Review 2022”
Hello there, I just finished reading your article on Constant Contact and thought I would just drop you a quick comment to say thanks. Until reading your article I hadn’t heard of this service but as a user of an autoresponder myself, I am interested to learn more about this service.
I have tried Awber and am currently using GetResponse at the moment for my email capturing needs. Would you say that Constant Contact is a better choice for someone who is a small online business owner? I see you also mention training in your review. Do you know what the training covers? I am currently looking at some training within GetResponse and I would like to see how the two compare.
Thanks in advance for your advice!
Hi Andrew, it’s great that your business is growing. Like you I’ve tried a few. I did find that the training with Getresponse was better than Constant Contact as it is more video based than webinar. It depends on what you prefer.
Hey! I am starting my e-commerce business and email subscriptions is something I consider for the future, once I build a solid base of products and valuable articles. I don’t know why though but somewhat I don’t see how those email subscriptions (whatever app you use) can boost your sales. Maybe because I myself typically spam those newsletters. I will have to trust experienced marketing gurus though 🙂 for that Constant Contact looks like a good option.. thanks!
Hi Cogito, newsletters from recognized autoresponders don’t go into spam because the subscribers have consented to receive them. This is your contact list to build good relationships and promote your products to willing subscribers that can number in the 1000’s over years.
I set up an AWeber account some time ago, but I admit that other than linking my site and setting up the option for readers to subscribe to my e-mailing list, I haven’t done much in this area yet.
Thank you for this presentation and review of Constant Contact with all the interesting information. When you’re a beginner, there’s so much information and suggestions of what all you should do for a site’s performance that sometimes the day is too short. Building a quality website is really a long-term process, with a lot of learning, upgrading knowledge, trying new things, connecting, and of course most importantly, writing quality articles.
With kind regards,
It certainly is a learning journey. I am amazed at all the studies I have done in under 18 months and can’t believe I actually understand it having never been an internet girl before. I have to admit I did the same as you in setting up a subscriber account and then neglecting my subscribers. I’ve recently started sending just one email a week with some tips for my subscribers to at least thank them for staying with me.
You will eventually find your feet and it will all come together.
