In this guide we will show you how to integrate your Constant Contact account with OptimizeLeads. This will allow you to pass subscribers from your OptimizeLeads forms through to Constant Contact.
Please note that this integration is in the process of being updated on the OptimizeLeads platform. When the new version goes live, the following steps will need to be followed in order to use this integration. Currently as of January 16th, 2024 the integration is not available in OptimizeLeads as Constant Contact has changed how the integration works.
Create app in Constant Contact
The first step in integrating with Constant Contact is to create an app on their developer website.
Go to https://developer.constantcontact.com/ and click login.
Login with your Constant Contact logins. Once logged in, click My Applications and then New Application
In the popup modal box, you will need to create a name for your application and then click Create. You do not need to change any settings on this screen as long as they match the settings shown below:
Now click on “Edit”
Click on “Details” and copy the API and click Generate Client Secret
Click the blue “Generate Client Secret” button.
Now copy the client secret and put it in a safe spot.
Now what you’ll want to do is come back to OptimizeLeads. Click “Integrations” and then scroll down to “Constant Contact” and then click the gray “Connect” button.
Now you’ll just paste in the API and Secret keys that you copied earlier in this guide.
The Callback URL would need to be pasted into your app back at Constant Contact in place of the localhost default URL placeholder
Once you do this then you can save the integration in OptimizeLeads and be able to use it.
