Can you believe it’s summer already?

If you’re like many small business owners and marketers, you’ve been working hard all year to grow your business.

And now you’re looking forward to a well-deserved vacation.

Or maybe you — like 43 percent of small business owners — struggle to take time away from your business.  

If you’re worried that stepping away from your business could stunt your business’s growth, it’s time to look into some new tools to automate your marketing efforts.

Constant Contact has tools and integrations to make staying on top of customer relationships easy no matter where you are. 

If you’re wondering how to grow your business, even while you’re away, give these tools a try!

1. Email automation

Worried about following up with new leads and customers while you’re on vacation?  

By creating an automated series of emails, you can automatically send personalized email messages to all new email subscribers.

Customize your welcome email, and schedule one or two follow-up messages to drive engagement and sales on an ongoing basis.  

You can also engage your existing customers by setting up automated Birthday or Anniversary emails.

2. Gazella Wifi

With your email marketing sending on autopilot, make sure you’re continuing to grow your email list even while you’re taking time off.

Using Gazella Wifi, your customers will be asked to provide their email address in order to access wifi at your business. The integration then automatically adds contacts to your Constant Contact account.

Gazella Wifi’s platform also gives you the ability to create a custom landing page that matches your brand or create a redirect so guests are driven to your website first.
