Constant Contact html email site

Apr 25, 2012 4:11 AM

Anyone had any experience with http://www.constantcontact.com ?

 

My problem is this:

 

I create about 5 or 6 html emailers a month for a client and ALL images are stored in individual folders on their server because they are named slice_1, slice_2, slice_3 etc. Plus its easier to manage should they have the necessity to change a slice which contains a price or something which is easily amended.

 

I have another similar client who use constantcontact.com. It appears that in constantcontact you can't create folders to store your images???.......they just give you a single image library. Obviously the naming convention slice_1, slice_2 etc won't work as presumably the old image will be overwritten if I upload another one with the same name.

 

Anyone else had this issue. I don't want to have to give each image an individual name because it will be a nightmare to manage. I really need the facility to contain different html email images in seperate folders. Maybe there is an option in constantcontact but I'm not seeing it?

 

Thanks

P.S. I guess the other option would be to house the folder/images on the clients web server and just send the html through constantcontact. Its my clients choice of html emailer handler so I can't switch to an alternative.

    At present, there are no 'folders' in ConstantContact. This is a most-requested-for feature and they're planning to roll it out this year.

    All images I use in my newsletters are stored on my webserver. I just put them in with a full path url <img src=www.mydomail.com/newsletter/2012/may-2012/images/myimage.jpg width="600" height="124" alt="my image"  />

     

    You will need access to the webserver.

     

    I store everything in the newsletter folder as I am a real stickler for directory structure. It works and I send out about 3,000 newsletters a month.

    You could probably even try MailChimp - very reliable service. Their workflow management is lot simpler and very well organized.

    Ah, I get it!

     

    But then, just to let you know - I've transitioned about 6 clients in the past 1 year from ConstantContact to MailChimp. I briefed them about the differences and let them research internally and take a call. And so far, no complaints.
