How to Install the Ad Network Placement on Constant Contact

Ready to get your Paved ad network placement live in your Constant Contact email newsletter? In this post, we’re going to share with you the step-by-step instructions to get you there. 

How to set up targeted ads in your newsletter template 

So that your placement can be easily included in future newsletters, we recommend that you put ad placement HTML in your email template rather than in a one-off email. 

How to configure your ad parameters

There are two parameters required to deliver an ad: a subscriber’s email and a campaign ID to uniquely identify the newsletter sent. 

We don’t store the subscriber’s email address but we do store the campaign ID to track your earnings.  

Select Constant Contact from the list of ESPs and Paved will automatically insert the appropriate merge tags in the code. 

How to put the ad code in the header

In your Paved account, copy the provided header code for your ad placement. 

On the Constant Contact home page, click on ‘Campaigns’.

Then, find the campaign template you want to work on and click ‘Edit’.

This will open your HTML editor where you can paste your code just above the </head> tag in the HTML editor on the left side of the screen. It should look something like what you see below.

After you're done, click ‘Save’ above the HTML editor.

Where to install the ad placement code

The code below is for the ad placement. It must be pasted exactly in the right location within the same code editor used before. 

Paved includes some existing code from your ad template to help you locate the correct location as shown below.

Next, click the ‘copy code’ button to copy the ad placement code. 

Go back to your Constant Contact template editor and paste your ad placement code in the section indicated in the example provided in your Paved account. It should look something like what you see below.

After you're done, click ‘Save’ in the top-right corner of the screen.

Testing your ad placement 

To send a test email to yourself, from the campaign template editor screen, click ‘Check & Preview’ and then ‘Preview’.

A pop-up screen will then appear where you can preview your email as well as send a test copy. Enter the email address for your test email and click ‘Send Now’.

Be sure to review the test email sent to your inbox to ensure formatting and ad placement look correct. 

Closing notes

To remove code from a send, simply delete the main ad placement code. It is not necessary to remove the header code.
