Our user id for Constant Contact is trinitymal
Constant Contact is our e-mail communication system. We have nearly 3000 contacts in our database that receive various e-mails from our organization. We have grouped the contacts so that we can send e-mails to a single parent support group, the PieceWalk contacts, or all of our contacts. It is very important that we do not over communicate or send out information that is not accurate or valuable. It only takes one or two of these e-mails before someone will “opt – out” of receiving e-mails from us. Program directors and parent support group leaders should ONLY create and send e-mails to their group list. If you need or want to send to other lists, let us know so we can time the communication with other statewide e-mails.
We have been using Constant Contact for many years and frankly we have been concerned about the quality and look of the e-newsletters. Last year, we asked our designer, Jon Koelsch to design templates for each group so that we could standardize the colors, font sizes, layout, etc. However, because there is no way in Constant Contact to set aside the templates, they are buried deep in the list of e-mails, and, over time, the quality of our e-newsletter look erodes. Please try to keep your template clean and learn the title of it. Your template is dated 11/7/2011. Do not edit this template!!! Copy it and then edit for all new e-newsletters. Try not to change colors or use a different font unless you really need to do so. Please try to name (or rename) your e-mails and pictures thoughtfully. The next person may be trying to find your e-newsletter and goofy titles make for long rabbit chases! LOL! If you have forgotten how to use Constant Contact, login and go to the home page. You can click on “Create an e-mail” and watch a short video. The program has gotten easier and easier over the years. If you need personal training on Constant Contact, please let me or Crystal know. We are happy to help you!
