What fields do you pass to Constant Contact?
Do you update subscribers?
Yes, if you run a promotion and we pass someone to Constant Contact, then you run another promotion in the future and the same person enters, we will automatically update their information in Constant Contact (if any new information is provided). Mainly, the referral URL will be updated with the newest URL for each promotion they enter.
If you have connected to Constant Contact and data is not being added to your list, these are the most common reasons as to why:
Email already in Constant Contact list
The email address entered into the promotion may already be in your Constant Contact list, so it will not be added again.
Email already entered into ViralSweep
The email address entered into the promotion has already been entered into the promotion previously, so therefore it is not passed to Constant Contact. This can happen if you set up your Constant Contact integration after you have already entered the promotion.
User did not opt-in
The user did not click the link in their double opt-in confirmation email that was sent to them. If they don't click that link, they won't be added to your list.
Delay in reporting
Constant Contact is having a delay in reporting. Try checking again in a few hours.
