  Marketing, Re-affirms Q1 and FY 2013 Financial Guidance

WALTHAM, Mass. -- February 25, 2013

Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) has promoted Christopher M. Litster to
senior vice president, sales and marketing. Previously vice president and
general manager of Constant Contact’s EventSpot business unit and a member of
the executive team, Litster will now head worldwide sales and marketing for
the company. He will continue to report to CEO Gail Goodman.

In his more than seven years at Constant Contact, Litster has served in a
variety of senior sales and marketing positions, running the conversion,
website, and product marketing teams, in addition to the EventSpot business
unit. In that time, he has developed a deep knowledge of both Constant
Contact’s business and the small business market the company serves.

“Chris’s strategic and operational leadership have proven to be great assets
to Constant Contact throughout his tenure here, and I’m confident that he is
the right person for the job. He knows the Constant Contact business inside
and out, plus he knows the team and the organization, which means zero time
spent getting up to speed on our business,” said Goodman. “Our focus remains
firmly on delivering near-term customer growth and executing against our
long-term goal of revolutionizing the success formula for small businesses.”

Litster replaces Rick Jensen, who is leaving Constant Contact due to a family
medical situation. Jensen will remain with Constant Contact through the end of
the first quarter to ensure a smooth transition. “We thank Rick for all of his
contributions. He has been a great leader here at Constant Contact, and we’re
disappointed to see him go. Of course, we fully understand and support his
decision to focus on his family during this difficult time,” said Goodman.

Joel Hughes, senior vice president of strategy and corporate development, will
lead the EventSpot business unit, reporting to Goodman. “Joel’s past
experience will serve us well as we continue to make EventSpot one of our
major growth catalysts,” said Goodman.

In conjunction with this announcement, Constant Contact is re-affirming its
previously stated financial guidance for the first quarter and the full year
2013, previously announced in its financial results press release dated
Thursday, January 31, 2013.
