How do I add contact email addresses and details?
Add contacts to your account
Before you can send an email or invitation you need to add your contacts to your account. There are several ways to do that based on how many contacts you need to add and the extra information you want to give us.
Whether you have an entire list or a single business card, we've got you covered.
To add contacts:
- After logging into Constant Contact, click Contacts.
Click Add Contacts.
Choose how you want to add your contacts from the drop-down. Click the links below for a detailed walk-through of each method.
- Add a contact - Type in your contacts and any details that you'd like to store with us.
- Add multiple contacts - Copy email addresses and paste them in your account or add a handful of contacts and details manually.
- Add from file - Take a spreadsheet of your contacts along with any details and add them all at once.
