While we are waiting for job orders to pick up this fall, you can use Constant Contact to keep in touch with your prospects. It is an email marketing program that is simple to use and inexpensive. All you need to do is create an Excel spreadsheet with the email addresses that you have in your files for prospects you haven’t been in touch with for a while.

You also need the person’s first name. With your main prospects it may be better to send them a Word email that you customize for each contact.

I created a simple message on how to reopen your office. Two of the links are to American sites. In Constant Contact they use buttons for the links, which are fairly easy to set up. When you start with Constant Contact, they help you create a template and you’ll need some help creating the buttons. Their technical support is very good at helping you get up and going.

Also, they track who has opened your email and who has clicked on the links, without people knowing they are being tracked. It is key to allow prospects to opt out easily, however the unsubscribe link is in the small text at the bottom of the email. Therefore, I have highlighted the unsubscribe at the start of the email. Please feel free to give me a call for how to set it up. I am Hugh Morris, NPA 7408.

Attached is the PDF of the Constant Contact email.

Below is a sample Word Email with the Links:

  • Employees: Explain details of the changes, new work practices and guidelines for health and safety

  • Customers: Use multiple channels to ensure your message is widely received and reinforced
