In an effort to bring more mobile users into its fold, Constant Contact today announced five new mobile partners in its AppConnect program. The move gives Constant Contact customers access to a new set of mobile email marketing tools, such as mobile email list building, location-aware text check-ins and more.
Based in Waltham, MA, Contant Contact is an email marketing service that lets users create and manage email lists and professional looking newsletters. Through the company’s free RESTful API, third-party services can integrate with the email marketing service.
Contant Contact’s newest mobile marketing integrations include:
iCapture: An app you can use on your iPad or Android tablet to capture names, emails, and preferences from customers and add them to your Constant Contact account automatically. You can also use the feature offline to capture contact information at events or tradeshows.
RoundBuzz: A text check-in that allows businesses to collect email addresses by prompting customers to join their mailing list once they check-in to a store location. The app also lets small businesses offer customers discounts and rewards for checking-in.
AdLeads: Small businesses can grow their Constant Contact email list by creating a mobile sign-up ad through AdLeads. The mobile ad campaign will run across top mobile apps such as Where’s My Droid, iFishing, Color Effects, Battery Booster, top music apps and many others.
Ez Texting: A service that allows you to run a text messaging campaign to your Constant Contact email subscribers. Ez Texting helps small businesses promote their business, run text-to-join campaigns, polls and contests.
Mojaba: A mobile, web publishing platform, Mojaba allows Constant Contact customers to create mobile sign-up forms to join Constant Contact mailing lists. You can choose the mailing list you want your contacts added to and the mobile form is automatically built with no programming required.
All of the new email marketing tools are available on the Constant Contact Marketplace.
