Contact management is a cornerstone of our software. Every lead generated from a capture page is a contact. Also, every member has a contact record associated with them.
This page, like all pages, can be fully customized. There is a web app version of this page for offline access of contact details. If a country is not provided by the contact it is automatically detected from their IP. Advanced search is exclusive meaning each search criteria must be matched. Contacts can be flagged for easy identification. Example: You could have a red flag indicate that a contact is interested in a specific product and a yellow flag could indicate a different product, etc.
has the ability to view/manage everyone’s contacts.
OPENED MESSAGE TRACKING
A ✉ appears next to the name of contacts that have opened an email. Opened message tracking only works when using HTML emails. If the contact views an email offline it does not track that the email was been opened. If images are disabled in the email then it will not track that the email was opened. You can view specific details of which emails were opened and how many times on the contact stats page and also in the regular stats.
LINK CLICK TRACKING
A chain link icon appears next to the name of a contact that has clicked on a link in one of the emails. Link tracking needs to be turned on under advanced features for this feature. You can view specific details of which links were clicked in which emails on the contact emails stats page.
Members are able to create their own contact groups. A contact can belong to multiple contact groups. Contact groups not only allow you to group contacts but also autoresponder series can be attached to contact groups so that contacts in the group receive follow up messages. Contact groups and all the email messages assigned to them can be copied by clicking the icon on the contact groups page.
Default Contact Groups
- Active Contacts - By default when a contact first fills out the form on the capture page they are assigned to the active contacts group. You can change which group a contact is added to when editing a capture page.
- Converted Contacts - A group for contacts that have already joined as a member. When a member joins any contacts that have an email matching the email of the new member are automatically transferred to the converted contacts group.
- Inactive Contacts - Contacts that are inactive. Members can change contacts to the inactive group. If a contact clicks the opt-out link they automatically become an inactive contact. When using double optin contacts are inactive until they click the link to confirm their email.
On the contacts page as well as anywhere a contact appears throughout the members area there is a actions link that can be clicked to get useful links for the contact. There are new options that appear when you purchase specific tools (such as live chat, or SMS Marketing).

Shows detailed statistics of each page view and each message sent. Under page views it shows the browser, IP, and operating system of the contact. Under email history, if you click the subject, it shows you a history of every time the contact has opened or clicked on a link in the email.
Every contact has a score from performing actions such as visiting pages, opening emails, watching videos, etc. On the score you can see a list of each action the contact did that added points to their score. The scoring can also be customized to fit your needs.
You can add notes to contacts to track whatever additional items you need.
You can transfer contacts to a new contact group or add contacts to an additional contact group.

When having the SMS Marketing tool this allows you to send SMS and voice messages to a contacts phone if they live in the USA.
When having the Calendar tool this allows you to add appointments for the contact. You are sent an SMS reminder 5-10 minutes before your appointment if you add a USA mobile number.
Adding and Importing Contacts
By default contacts are harvested from the capture page. However, in addition to this you can choose to allow members to manually add contacts themselves and/or to import contacts. When importing contacts you can import any CSV file with any contact fields you want (there is no set format you have to use).
