WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Small businesses continue to work harder than ever, and many are seeking ways to make their marketing activities more efficient and effective. With this in mind, Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) has announced significant upgrades to its contact management and file storing services while also bolstering mobile capabilities for its more than half a million customers.
Constant Contact’s new and improved contact management and reporting features are an industry first, providing small businesses with comprehensive contact management in the same platform as their suite of online marketing tools. Whether they engage contacts through email, events, or social media, small businesses can now keep tabs on interaction history such as newsletter opens, click-throughs, and event attendances. Based on that information they can then immediately implement and execute more educated marketing strategies, all from within one platform.
List growth has become a small business priority, and considering the multitude of ways small businesses now find new customers and interact with current ones, additional breakthrough insights from Constant Contact include the ability to see which list growth tactics are working best and which ones they may want to focus more attention. The new “did not open” email report lets small businesses see who has not been recently engaging with their brand, opening up opportunities for re-engagement.
“With these upgrades, our customers can better keep track of their contacts and engage in deeper relationship building than ever before,” said Ken Surdan, senior vice president of product at Constant Contact. “We are committed to providing our customers with the most innovative and powerful marketing solutions available, equipping them with the necessary tools to become the best marketers they can be.”
MyLibrary, Constant Contact’s image and document-storing feature, is also brimming with new additions. Customers can now upload Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents in addition to PDF and image files into their account, and a new drag/drop interface allows customers to quickly pull images from their desktop or Facebook and Instagram profiles. The option of expanded document storage space is available as well.
For the small businesses marketer on the move, Constant Contact has also launched the MyLibrary mobile application for both iOS and Android. Straight from their mobile phones, customers can view and upload documents into their account, edit file names and descriptions, and copy file URLs for quick sending via text or email.
MyLibrary mobile follows hot on the heels of Constant Contact’s refreshed Quickview app. The email marketing editing and reporting application for iOS, featuring easily editable mobile email templates, saw 56 percent growth in customer adoption between June and August.
“The incredible response to the new Quickview app shows how important mobile technology has become to small businesses,” said Jim Garretson, mobile product manager at Constant Contact. “They need to be able to create and edit their marketing campaigns on whatever device is within arm’s reach. These new mobile apps, like all our products, have been developed to make things easier and more efficient for the time-starved small business owners.”
