Integrating with Constant Contact | Online Help - Bigin by Zoho CRM

Integrating with Constant Contact

Constant Contact helps small businesses engage with customers and extend their outreach with their email marketing tools. With this integration, you can sync the contacts between your pipeline tool (Bigin) and your marketing tool (Constant Contact) 

Let's assume your marketing campaign has generated a bunch of prospects who are likely to buy your product. Now, to convert these prospects into customers you want to add them to your sales pipeline. This integration imports the prospects in your Constant Contact account into your Bigin account. Similarly, if you want to send out an email campaign to a list of prospects in Bigin, this integration works both ways and syncs the contacts in your Bigin account to the contact lists of your Constant Contact account seamlessly.
Paid and Trial edition of Express and Premier.
Only users with Admin profile can install this topping.

To set up the topping,

  1. You can synchronize up to five contact lists from Constant Contact. 
  2. Bigin syncs with Constant Contact instantly, but the sync from Constant Contact to Bigin happens once every 2 hours. 
  1. In the Configure List page, perform the following actions for both the Constant Contact list and Bigin Contacts View.
    1. Choose the list to be synced from the Constant Contact drop-down list.
    2. Choose a Contacts module list view to be synced from the Bigin Contacts View drop-down list.

  2. Click Next.
  3. Select the Initial import preference.
  4. Click Finish.
    This will start importing contacts from the chosen Constant Contact list to Bigin.

You will be notified once the import is complete, after which you can configure sync for other audience lists.
  5. Enable Sync Opt-outs from Constant Contact to Bigin if you want to enable email opt automatically for a record in Bigin when the same contact unsubscribes from the Constant Contact mailing list.
