Constant Contact
Update Constant Contact contacts with their unique share link and referrer information.
Note: The Constant Contact integration is only available to users on a GrowSurf paid plan.

Sync with your Constant Contact List

Step 1: In Campaign Editor > 4. Options > Integrations, click the Connect to Constant Contact button
IMPORTANT: Because the GrowSurf data sync to Constant Contact only occurs after you have connected with the integration, it is imperative to connect with the integration BEFORE importing participants. Click here to see remedy options if you have already imported participants into your campaign but would like to sync their GrowSurf data to Constant Contact.
Step 2: Log in to Constant Contact and authorize GrowSurf
Step 3: Once connected, choose the Constant Contact list that you want to automatically sync to. GrowSurf will add/update your Constant Contact contacts every time a new participant is added or referred to your referral campaign.

Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the new participant isn't being added to Constant Contact, or if they are being added but their unique referral link isn't being synced to Constant Contact:
    • Activity logs will denote if a participant was added to Constant Contact or if they failed to be added. (In the case of failure, GrowSurf will re-attempt to add them for 7 days).
