As of August 1, 2019, all newly-created Constant Contact accounts (and partnerships) will not have access to Event campaigns.

In late 2018, the team at Constant Contact announced its choice to place discontinue all work on the event campaign tool (formerly known as “EventSpot”). They did this to focus more on their main mission to provide online marketers with updates to premier email, Website Builder, and social ads tools. 

If you were a big fan of the feature (and used it often!) there is no need to panic.

Here’s the most important bit:

Current partners, your current managed/referred clients, and our current direct customers will all still retain access to Event campaigns. 

There is still one caveat: Any new direct customers under your partnership after August 1, 2019 will not have access to Event campaigns. 

Essentially, if you’ve signed up through TOCmedia and would like to continue working with Event Spot, please send us an email at tracy.oclair@toc-media.com and we can reach out to Constant Contact on your behalf. 

Constant Contact warns that while there is permanent retirement date for accounts grandfathered into the program, it’s still wise to start making the switch to Eventbrite integration instead. 

There is even a $100 promotional Eventbrite credit available when creating new Eventbrite accounts through the platform. 

If you need any help with the transition (or applying the promotional credit!) please don’t hesitate to reach out to the TOCmedia team. We’re here to help you!
