    The tools. The people. The drive to help small business do more business.

    What we do

    One tool, for all your marketing. That’s the Constant Contact Toolkit. Our customers get real results through marketing campaigns like email newsletters, surveys, events, Facebook promotions, online listings, and more. But it’s not just about the product: award-winning support and free marketing resources are there to make the path to success smoother.

    Where it all started

    Constant Contact was founded as “Roving Software” in 1995, setting up shop in a cramped attic in Brookline, Massachusetts. Back then, email was usually viewed as just a way for friends to communicate online. But our founders saw what it could be: a valuable marketing tool that would help small businesses level the playing field in the battle against big business.

    By 2005, we surpassed 50,000 customers. Fenway Park couldn’t hold a crowd that big.

    Just two years later we doubled the 50k mark it had taken us a decade to reach—introducing a second product and taking our company public in the process.

    In 2009, Constant Contact reached all-new milestones: A third product (Event Marketing), more customers than ever (250,000), and a second office (Loveland, CO).

    The next three years saw more new offices (San Francisco, UK) and powerful new products like Social Campaigns, SaveLocal, and SinglePlatform. To support it all, we ramped up our coaching and support operations, adding online chat, email, and tons of local classes and seminars for face—to—face learning.

    In 2014, we unveiled our biggest innovation yet: a powerful Toolkit designed to be the all-in-one marketing solution. Through it all, we kept to our mission: to empower small businesses and nonprofits to grow customer relationships and succeed.

    What’s next? Every day we find new ways to build on our commitment to small businesses. That doesn’t just mean more powerful tools and new services; it’s initiatives like our Small Business Innovation Loft. It’s a free program designed to support startups and help them bring ideas that could benefit small businesses and nonprofits to market. That’s the vision for Constant Contact’s future; more opportunities to revolutionize the formula for small business success.
