Constant Contact Pricing: What Are the Fees for Each Plan?

Professor

Wondering how much Constant Contact will cost you? This pricing guide will help you chose the right plan by letting you know what you really need and what you don’t.

Constant Contact offers two different types of plans:

  1. The basic Email Constant Contact plan is meant for small teams or freelancers that don’t need the most advanced email marketing features (more info in our table below).
  2. The Constant Contact Email Plus plan is great for managing teams and is the right choice if you need features like automations, event management or online surveys.

Constant Contact Pricing & Plans

An overview of Constant Contact Pricing

Constant Contact pricing depends on a) which plan you need, and b) the amount of subscribers. The basic Email plan starts at $20 monthly for 500 contacts, or $45 monthly for the Email Plus option. Constant Contact can be trialled for 60 days (no credit card required) and it has a 30-day money back guarantee.

Of course, if you have more subscribers the price for Constant Contact will increase:

 

Contacts Email Plan Email Plus Plan
0-500 $20 / month $45 / month
501-2,500 $45 / month $70 / month
2,501-5,000 $65 / month $95 / month
5,001-10,000 $95 / month $125 / month

Note: Be aware that they offer plans for larger lists. If that’s your case, check Constant Contact’s website for more information.

Being 100% honest, I think there are better tools out there that can do a more effective job than Constant Contact (e.g. GetResponse or Active Campaign) at even lower prices (e.g. MailerLite). These tools are particularly better at automations and list segmentation.

However, Constant Contact scored exceptionally well in our deliverability tests. If this ‘little’ extra is important for you, Constant Contact may be a good alternative.

Constant Contact Prices & Plans: Final Thoughts

The Email plan is aimed at small organizations or solopreneurs that don’t rely on email marketing solely. It’s designed for those that send a campaign here and there and don’t need / want email automations and other advanced features. Nonetheless, it’s still a bit costly and for that price you can find much better tools.

Take into account that if you have a list of over 10,000 contacts, your Constant Contact plan would include all the Email Plus features (read below).

Automations and having up to 10 users are, probably, the most useful upgrades of the Email Plus plan. This plan is meant for bigger organizations that need the advanced Constant Contact features. However, there are still smarter tools out there that do a better job at segmentation and email automation.

Another thing to take into account is that you won’t have unlimited storage (for files and images) with Constant Contact. The Email plan will offer 1GB and the Email Plus will grant you 2GB. This should be OK for most marketers.

Constant Contact has discounts when you purchase their services for longer periods. You’ll get 10% off when signing up for 6-month deals and a 15% discount for yearly plans. Before you lock yourself down with one of these long contracts, double check that Constant Contact is indeed the best tool for you.

Another interesting Email Plus feature is the online donations, where you’ll be able to create a landing page and collect donations using WePay. If you organize events, Constant Contact can be a great addition to your toolbox too, as their system is ready to help you sell your event tickets and keep track of your user registrations.

I have to say that overall, Constant Contact is an expensive tool. Especially when compared to more powerful alternatives at similar (or cheaper) prices. Sadly, it doesn’t have a free plan either, but you can trial it for free for long enough before you decide.

Are you still unsure of which plan you should get? Leave a comment below and we’ll be happy to help.

Yes, with Constant Contact you’ll be eligible for up to a 30% discount if you get a Constant Contact plan.

They distinguish between active contacts and inactive contacts (e.g. unsubscribed). Your subscribers account limit will take into account only the active contacts. In other words, inactive contacts, like those who have unsubscribed, won’t increase the price of your plan.
