The WordPress Plugin Directory has more than 100 plugins that integrate Constant Contact in different ways for email marketing, such as adding a subscription checkbox to registration or providing an email signup form via a widget. This week the company released its own official plugin on WordPress.org to expand its reach to the WordPress market.
Constant Contact Forms was built in partnership with WebDevStudios. The plugin makes it easy for users to add forms to their sites and includes the ability to customize the fields for capturing specific data from visitors. These fields are seamlessly mapped to their corresponding fields in the linked Constant Contact account.
The forms are mobile-friendly and will automatically take on the theme and style of the site where they are displayed. Users can select which Constant Contact list to add subscribers to when setting up a new form.
The plugin allows users to sync lists between WordPress and the linked Constant Contact account. It will display up to 100 lists in the WordPress admin.
Form submissions are instantly available in the user’s account. The plugin can also be used without a Constant Contact account and will still collect data from visitors, which can be transferred to an account at a later time.
WebDevStudios is contracted to continue maintenance and development of the plugin and is currently working on the next version, which will introduce more features. Support will be offered via the plugin’s WordPress.org support forums.
