ConstantContact User Guide

We built the Email Script generator to Fast EMBED the Calendar Invite into a CALL to ACTION graphic (CTA) for a Constant Contact Email template. This allows for a “One Click” registration for fast easy signups for your events. The customer is going to get a Calendar Invitation sent directly to them when they click your CTA graphic inside you Constant Contact Template.  This is not a Downloadable ICS, it is a Calendar INVITATION. It will show up on their Calendar Desktop, Google Calendar, or Mobile Phone Calendar.  Guaranteed not to get lost since the Invitation since will be sent directly to the customers Calendar and then you can track with our reporting engine.

In addition you can add a COUPON to the calendar invitation as a URL inside the Calendar Invite.   You can use our Default Exit Landing page when clicked, which is one of our IFRAME Landing pages with a Shareable URL for the event with a Calendar invitation Modal or you can insert you own Landing Page for CTA Click through behavior after the Calendar invite is sent.  We support Mail Chimp and Exact Target as well.
