We’re happy to announce integration with the Constant Contact email marketing platform. Constant Contact is used by more than 500,000 small businesses to build and deliver e-mail campaigns. You can design, send, and track emails with a simple set of tools and their easy-to-use interface.
E-mail marketing is a great way to stay connected with your customers. Last minute deals, sessional newsletters, and VIP offers can have a dramatic impact on your bottom line.
To get started, you first need a Constant Contact account. There is a free trial available on www.constantcontact.com, and they offer competitive pricing based on the number of customers on your list(s).
You can enable the Checkfront/Constant Contact integration in the Add-on section of your Checkfront account. A single click will request your authorization and connect the two applications. You can then select which Constant Contact list you want to subscribe customers to.
Once activated, Constant Contact will work with Checkfront pretty seamlessly. When a customer makes a booking, they’ll be given the option to opt in to a mailing list of your choosing. If you take phone bookings, you can also ask customers if they’d like to be added to your list and add them while making the booking.
You can further map specific fields used in Checkfront to custom fields in your mailing list. This can include the last booking date, special notes or other information collected at the time of booking.
When a customer has been subscribed via Constant Contact, you can see it in the activity log (or the log view) while viewing a booking.
