Looking for Constant Contact Alternatives?

Stop looking for Constant Contact alternatives and discover Smart Messenger - a powerful UK email marketing platform! It's an excellent alternative to Constant Contact, fully supported by a dedicated account manager and at an attractive price tag.

Is it easy to use?

One of the most critical factors when choosing an email marketing platform is ease of use. The platform should be user-friendly and easy to navigate, especially for those who do not have a technical background. Smart Messenger has a user-friendly interface that allows users to create and manage email campaigns easily. The drag-and-drop email builder makes it easy to create visually appealing emails without any coding experience. On the other hand, Constant Contact's user interface can be complicated for beginners, making it difficult to create and manage campaigns.

Smart Messenger provides dedicated account managers to each customer. Our account managers are digital marketing experts who take the time to understand each customer's business, enabling them to provide tailored support and guidance. This approach sets Smart Messenger apart from Constant Contact and other email marketing platforms, ensuring that customers receive the help they need to succeed.

Do you hold my data in the UK?

Yes! We hold all of your data in the UK. Smart Messenger, being a UK-based email marketing platform, is fully compliant with UK data protection laws and GDPR. This compliance provides businesses with peace of mind when it comes to the security of their data. As a result, Smart Messenger is a great option for UK-based businesses who require full compliance with UK data protection laws and GDPR.

In contrast, Constant Contact is an American email marketing platform, which may not be fully compliant with UK data protection laws. Therefore, UK-based businesses may be exposed to additional risks and liabilities when using Constant Contact. Furthermore, Constant Contact's support team may not have the same level of understanding of UK-based businesses and their specific needs, which could lead to a lack of personalised support and guidance.

For more information about the value of choosing a home-grown email marketing service for UK organisations, check out our blog "Why UK Companies Need a UK-Based Email Marketing Service".

At Smart Messenger, we take data protection seriously and follow all the relevant regulations including the UK Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our in-house staff are trained and accredited to handle data protection issues, so you can trust that your data is safe with us. If you have any queries about data protection or security, feel free to speak with our experts who are always available to help.

What about email marketing automation?

Another key difference between Smart Messenger and Constant Contact is our segmentation and targeting capabilities. Smart Messenger's advanced segmentation and targeting features enable businesses to create more personalised campaigns that resonate with UK-based customers. Plus you have unlimited access to Smart Messenger's 'Just Call Us' support. If you are unsure as to how best to use automation or if you just want us to cast an eye over what you have set up to give it a 'sanity check', simply call or email us. We are always happy to help.

In summary, Smart Messenger's UK-based compliance with data protection laws and GDPR, dedicated account managers, advanced segmentation and targeting features, and customisable templates make it a wise choice for UK-based businesses when compared to Constant Contact. Constant Contact may still be a viable option for businesses based outside the UK, but businesses in the UK should consider Smart Messenger for their email marketing needs.

Does Smart Messenger integrate?

Yes! Integrations are essential for businesses that use multiple tools and platforms to manage their business operations. Smart Messenger integrates, via Zapier with a wide range of crm systems, back office management and other platforms, including Salesforce, Guesty, Shopify and Woo Commerce, allowing businesses to streamline their operations and increase productivity. 

Zapier is a web-based automation tool that allows businesses to connect different applications and automate workflows. With over 3,000 integrations available, Zapier offers businesses an extensive range of possibilities to streamline their processes and boost productivity.

Zapier works on a simple premise: when one app triggers an event, Zapier can automate a task in another app. This automation is created through a series of triggers and actions, which businesses can customise to fit their specific needs. For example, when a new customer is added to a CRM like Hubspot, Zapier can automatically add them to a mailing list in Smart Messenger, allowing for targeted and personalised email campaigns. Likewise if you are using a calendar booking system such as SuperSaas you can trigger emails when someone books or changes an appointment.

Businesses can create multi-step workflows, which can include several triggers and actions across multiple applications. This capability enables businesses to create complex workflows that automate entire processes, such as lead generation, customer onboarding, and order fulfillment.

In summary, you gain an extensive range of integration options to streamline your processes and boost productivity.
