Constant Contact is One of the Most Popular Email Newsletter Services
Did you know that one of the most popular ways to send email newsletters is through Constant Contact? It is the second biggest email marketing platform after MailChimp with an astounding 60.51% of market share.
But like all great email marketing services, we have a lot of work and responsibility on our shoulders to get out an amazing looking email newsletter. Yep, that includes design and copy.
Well, know that you aren’t alone with the amount of time you spend sending email newsletters… In fact, email marketers average 2.6 hours a week on sending and creating email messages!
It’s not surprising that one of the biggest complaints we hear from marketers is the sheer amount of time it takes to create one perfect email newsletter!
We have to deal with alt tags, getting the images and formatting just right, fiddling with the HTML code and along the way make sure we don’t ‘break‘ anything so that it looks great on all devices.
The time spent on dealing with design and formatting, take away from our valuable limited resources as marketers. It means that other pressing marketing to-do’s get further and further down our list.
