Constant Contact, a leading provider of email marketing tools, just announced it’s first ever awards recognizing outstanding email campaigns by franchisors and franchisees.

The Franchise Excellence in Email Awards will recognize outstanding achievements in email marketing in three categories as judged by Constant Contact’s Franchise team and myself. That’s right. I’m the Guest Judge…

The award recipients will be announced at the 50th Annual IFA Convention held February 5-8, 2010 in San Antonio, Texas. The deadline for applications is January 29, 2010.

Constant Contact has long recognized the value the franchise model offers to individual business owners, communities, and the economy, and we’ve dedicated considerable resources to helping these organizations succeed,” said Kevin O’Brien, director, National Accounts, Constant Contact. “We’re impressed with how effectively franchises have used email marketing to develop strong, lasting customer relationships at the local level and have introduced the Franchise Excellence in Email Awards to recognize those businesses that have demonstrated outstanding email marketing success. We look forward to highlighting the best of the best.”
