Constant Contact's Business Partner Program Is Better Than It Seems

Constant Contact doesn’t openly advertise their Business Partner Program’s competitive commission structures.

Constant Contact promotes their Partner Program with just a 15% starting commission, so it may come as a surprise that their commission structure goes up to 40%. No one else offers anywhere near that amount.

Here’s how their commission rate is calculated:

  1. 15% up to $250/month net revenue
  2. 20% up to $500/month
  3. 25% up to $1,000/month
  4. 30% up to $2,500/month
  5. 40% up to $5,000/month

Constant Contact offers very competitive commission for active affiliates

At first glance, Constant Contact’s partner program appears simply decent. The base 15% commission is nowhere near the 25% commissions offered by other programs. What they don’t tell you is that as you continue to build your referral list, you can qualify for higher commission tiers.

The difference can be huge. Let’s say you’ve kicked major ass and are sending them $5,000/month in net revenue. That $5,000.00 in revenue would earn you varying amounts of money based on what commission you received.

  • 15% = $750
  • 20% = $1,000
  • 25% = $1,250
  • 30% = $1,500
  • 40% = $2,000

If you received the 40% commission tier, you would make $1,250 more each month compared to the base commission. Constant Contact doesn’t advertise this fact, but I believe it’s a huge incentive to start building your program today.

Better than the affiliate program

With the Constant Contact affiliate program, you get $2.00 for each trial signup and $50.00 when they convert to paid customers. That means $52.00 per converting lead. Let’s say they stay with Constant Contact for 5 years and sign up for their mid-range package of $30.00/month. Your referral will have generated $1,800 in revenue for Constant Contact. At the base commission structure, Constant Contact will have paid you almost $230.00 over the five years for that one signup.

  1. Would be nice if you could also get a commission from signing up other business partners.  Does that exist?  Nice post, btw.  I’ve been a biz partner for the past 3 years.  Hasn’t really paid off hugely yet, but one never knows….
