As a Constant Contact Authorized Local Expert, certified Social Media Marketing Presenter, Email Marketing Trainer, and accredited Constant Contact Solution Provider, I’ve been blessed to partner with organizations that serve the small business and nonprofit communities. Some of those organizations are listed below:
COMPANIES I PARTNER WITH THROUGH CONSTANT CONTACT’S PARTNER PROGRAM
Constant Contact was founded as “Roving Software” in 1995, setting up shop in a cramped attic in Brookline, Massachusetts. Back then, email was usually viewed as just a way for friends to communicate online. But their founders saw what it could be: a valuable marketing tool that would help small businesses level the playing field in the battle against big business. By 2005, they surpassed 50,000 customers. Just two years later they doubled the 50k mark it had taken them a decade to reach-introducing a second product and taking their company public in the process. In 2009, Constant Contact reached all-new milestones: A third product (Event Marketing), more customers than ever (250,000), and a second office (Loveland, CO). The next three years saw more new offices (San Francisco, UK) and powerful new products like Social Campaigns, SaveLocal, and SinglePlatform. In 2014, they unveiled their biggest innovation yet: a powerful Toolkit designed to be the all-in-one marketing solution. Through it all, they kept to their mission: to empower small businesses and nonprofits to grow customer relationships and succeed.
