Bambu has been helpful to shift our culture from one of reluctance and fear related to social media to one of acceptance.

Constant Contact

For me, Constant Contact is the top tool when it comes to smart email automation , which allows us to use specific triggers to send emails to targeted recipients. This makes it convenient to send just the right emails to people when they sign up for our product, make a successful or failed transaction etc[.] Another strong aspect of Constant Contact is its social marketing capability, which makes it convenient managing our Instagram and Facebook ads.

Pros

Bambu

  • Ease of use for user
  • Ease of use for managers and content contributors
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

  • It comprises very interesting tools that help us in making newsletters look more mobile friendly and bring day-to-day convenience for the users.
  • It gives us maximum freedom for creating interactive and attractive marketing campaigns.
  • This comprehensive platform helps me a lot in completing marketing strategies.
  • Efficient reporting and statistics is the biggest plus of this tool.

Cons

Bambu

  • Currently Bambu only supports LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter - would be nice to see other social platforms in the mix.
  • Story editing tool is pure WYSIWYG, would like to be able to see an "edit text/html" feature.
  • Would like to be able to customize HTML email template (for digest, newsletter, etc email templates) to our brand specs
Mike Kissel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

  • The interface is definitely a bit difficult to use and it takes some getting used to.
  • More customization and exporting of html would be awesome.
  • They could expand on features that other email marketing software has such as tying in with social media, more flows, etc.

There is no doubt that we are going to renew Constant Contact. We have not just invested a lot of time in learning and creating a great looking product but we have developed a strong database of information that allows us to track how we are doing for each newsletter. This supports our goals of creating products that residents desire and are excited to receive.

There is always room for improvement. I don't know how they test their systems, but they should invite not-so computer savvy people to test it. If I, as an expert have problems, they need to think like the technophobe. Since I've used Constant Contact in the past as part of my former employment, I have not viewed any of the tutorials and just jumped in to work on my client's newsletter. With that said, I found some areas easy and some a bit cumbersome

The system seemed quite slow sometimes. Specifically, there was sometimes a delay in sends if it was during a high traffic period. There were time-outs when uploading new code for an email, and a lag in reporting analytics which was sometimes as long as 72 hours

I think the overall support for Constant Contact has always been incredible; I have nothing negative to say. Our customer support representative was attentive, easy to understand, and very knowledgeable. I never felt like I wasn't a priority of his and my issues, while very small, were fixed in a very short time frame.

Implementation is very easy for someone who wants to send out the “batch and blast” type newsletters. If you want to use their templates with no customizations, the product works fine. However, the more customizations you get into involving link color, etc, that’s where things can get tricky for someone who may not be familiar with coding

Easy, clean and good price
Nathan Phillips | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

Mailchimp has ess customizable options and very basic pre-built templates. Very few features and options compared to Constant Contact. It's better for absolute beginners who are starting a business as Mailchimp provides a free trial of up to 200 customers which is good for beginners. Overall for small-scale as well as professionals and established ongoing businesses Constant Contact is definitely a better choice.

Very reliable in sending email campaigns and controlling the recipients so that no contact is sent the same email more than once, even if they are on a resent list

Return on Investment

Bambu

  • Helped boost website traffic
Gita Sukhraj | TrustRadius Reviewer

Constant Contact

  • I have had nothing but positive impacts from using Constant Contact.
  • The church is large, and there are many subgroups and axillary groups within the church. Setting up specific groups based on responsibility, interest, member goals, and service needs allows me to send information quickly, saving valuable time for other tasks.
  • Constant Contact allows leadership to stay personally engaged with the members I work with, without over-taxing my time. It feels so seamless.
