With Digioh and Constant Contact, you can make your email newsletters more dynamic and increase open-rates by featuring great downloadable content.  It’s simple to do- just follow these steps.

Step 1: Create a Digioh account and connect it to Constant Contact

Step 2: Upload your file and set the security level

Use the red Select a File button to choose the file (up to 2 GB) you want to upload. Under Security Options you’ll be able to set the security level for the file.  The security level tells Digioh what to do when someone who is not on your list tries to access your file.

With List Grower Security, if a person is not on your list, it will ask them to sign up in order to download the file.
With Membership Security, only those already subscribed to your list are allowed access.

Notice the email merge field is included at the end of the link.  This allows Digioh to track which subscribers are most engaged and are downloading your files.

      Hi JJ,

      Constant Contact doesn’t have any buttons pre-loaded, so you’ll have to find or create one for yourself and then upload it to Constant Contact. If you’re looking on the Internet, be sure that you have permission to use it. Otherwise, you can easily create one with Adobe Creative Suite or even in Microsoft Word.

      To add it to your template, enter the edit box after double-clicking on a section of the email template, then look on the left side to upload and add the image.
