This guide will show you how to take your sweepstakes and integrate it with Constant Contact so that you can start sending names and email addresses right into any Constant Contact list.
1) Connect to Constant Contact
When setting up your sweepstakes, go to the Connect Email Service section and click on Constant Contact.
2) Input Credentials
Add your Constant Contact username and password and click Log In. When prompted to allow access to ViralSweep 2.0, click the Allow button.
3) Choose a list
Once you successfully input your credentials, we will reveal your Constant Contact lists. Simply choose a list from the dropdown menu and click connect.
4) You're connected
That's it, you're all set. Your sweepstakes is now connected to your Constant Contact account, and we will send any names and email addresses right into that Constant Contact list.
If you have connected your sweepstakes to Constant Contact and email addresses are not being added to your list, these are the most common reasons as to why:
Email already in Constant Contact list
The email address entered into the sweepstakes may already be in your Constant Contact list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the sweepstakes has already been entered into the sweepstakes previously, so therefore it is not passed to Constant Contact. This can happen if you set up your Constant Contact integration after you have already entered the sweepstakes.
User did not opt-in
The user did not click the link in their double opt-in confirmation email that was sent to them. If they don't click that link, they won't be added to your list.
Delay in reporting
Constant Contact is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
