Set up a Mailing List with Constant Contact

Constant Contact is an online marketing company serving small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and membership associations. The company offers email marketing, social media marketing, online surveys, and event marketing tools.

Constant Contact's tools - supported by its expert personal coaching and customer support—help all types of small businesses and organizations create professional-looking email newsletters and insightful online surveys to begin a dialogue with their customers.

With Constant Contact, small organizations have access to the latest industry information and education to help them learn email marketing and online survey best practices. Plus, they benefit from Constant Contact's high email deliverability rates due to strong partnerships with ISPs, a no-tolerance spam policy, and a leadership role in organizations such as the ESPC (Email Sender and Provider Coalition).

There are two options available to you if you want to use Constant Contact:

  • You can buy Yola Mail for only $9.96/year and get a free 60-day trial with Constant Contact plus an email template to match your website. Using Yola Mail means that your mailing list is linked to your domain, and looks more professional. Please note that Yola Mail is not available to our partner programs.
  • If you don't have a domain or Yola Mail, you can use your regular email address, and still have access to the free 60-day trial period plus an email template to match your website. 

To take a look at the monthly pricing plans available when your 60 days have expired, click here: Constant Contact pricing. Once your free trial has ended, all your mailing lists and data are still kept in your account, so you can keep building your email lists. You can still create new emails, surveys, and events, but to send them you'll need to buy the product.
