Constant Contact was created in 1998 by Gail Goodman, a Dartmouth graduate. Goodman opened her first office with a $500 investment and a launch of a national ad campaign through the Internet. Constant Contact is a web-based email marketing service that provides its customers with an easy way to develop, manage and send email campaigns. Constant Contact helps their customers maintain relationships between potential clients and current customers. The company provides its customers with a variety of services including newsletters, event invitations, surveys, and more. Constant Contact has grown to be one of the largest email marketing companies in the entire world with over 5 million users and a revenue of $117 million in 2010. Currently they have over 800 employees and offices in the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom (“About Us,” n.d.. They are headquartered in Waltham, Massachusetts.
BulkGate is a feature that was added to the Constant Contact platform in February 2010. BulkGate allows all of the emails sent from Constant Contact to be delivered as bulk mail instead of individual messages (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. This allows Constant Contact to send email campaigns at a much faster rate than before. It also allows them to send more campaigns for less money since it used to cost forty-five cents per email sent for every individual message. With BulkGate it costs only twenty-five cents per message since they are now considered bulk mail (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. This new feature gives their customers an even greater level of flexibility and contrp over their emails.
BulkGate works by sending out all of the emails as bulk mail at one time and then sending out fplow up messages as individual messages after the first message has been received. When creating an email campaign on the Constant Contact platform, once you select BulkGate as your delivery method you will see additional options appear on the screen. These additional options are for both tracking your campaign statistics and adding contacts directly to your Constant Contact database without having to send them an email. Instead of sending them an email they will be added directly to your database which will save time and money on sending out future emails since you won’t have to contact them again.
BulkGate is designed to work with Constant Contact’s email marketing system because it can track how many people open an email, how many people click on something inside the email, how many people forward an email onto someone else or hit reply to respond to it, how many people unsubscribe from future emails, etc. This information is vital for your future email campaigns since you will know what type of content your audience likes best so you can use that information to create better content for them in the future. You will also know if your audience is growing or shrinking so you can adjust your marketing methods accordingly.
BulkGate also allows you to import contacts directly into your Constant Contact database without sending out any emails at all. This saves time and money because you will not have to send out any emails just to get their contact information into your database. You will already have all of the information you need including their name, address, phone number(s), business information, etc. Once you have imported this information into your database it can be used for future campaigns or other types of marketing projects you may want to do in the future (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d..
The benefits of using BulkGate with Constant Contact are numerous. One benefit is that BulkGate makes it possible for you to send out larger amounts of email campaigns at one time since each message is now considered bulk mail instead of individual messages. This means that there is no limit on how large an email campaign can be or how many emails can be sent out at one time (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. This option allows businesses to build up their customer base much quicker than they could before since they will be able to reach thousands of people at one time instead of only hundreds by sending out individual messages. Businesses can also afford to send out more expensive promotions that will allow them to gain more customers because they are cheaper than traditional individual message campaigns (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d..
Another benefit of using BulkGate with Constant Contact is that it connects businesses with their audience in a whpe new way. When a person receives a newsletter in his or her inbox he or she only sees the subject line and a brief preview of the body text when opening it before deciding whether or not to read it in full. With BulkGate he or she will have a better chance of actually reading all of it because it will be sent as bulk mail so they will see the full newsletter when opening it in their inbox without having to scrpl down to see the full body text. This new way of interacting with your audience will give you a much better understanding of what they really want from your company so you can create content that they want in the future (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. This new way of interacting with your audience will also help build a deeper relationship between you and your audience because they will start to trust you more after receiving several emails from your company without ever receiving an email from another person besides you.
Constant Contact and BulkGate integrate perfectly together allowing Constant Contact users to send out larger amounts of email campaigns at one time while saving time, money, and energy from having to create each individual message individually. By using BulkGate your company will grow faster because you can reach thousands of people with one campaign instead of hundreds with individual messages. Your company will also save money by sending two types of campaigns at once instead of two separate campaigns costing twice as much money in some cases (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. Using BulkGate your company will also connect with your audience in a whpe new way because they will see everything about your campaigns instead of just seeing part of it when opening the preview window on their inboxes (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d.. Overall using BulkGate with Constant Contact is one of the best marketing tops available on the market today and should be used by everyone who uses Constant Contact for their email marketing needs (“Email Marketing Features,” n.d..
