Constant Contact (CTCT -3.8%) closes with a decent loss after SA Pro author Nicholas Pardini argues the company faces tough e-mail marketing competition on the high-end from Amazon's Sendy newsletter app, and on the low-end from MailChimp. Whereas Sendy only carries a $40 up-front fee and Mailchimp is free for sub-2K e-mail lists, CTCT charges high-volume clients $75/month and low-volume clients $30/month. Also: social media marketing rival Salesforce (CRM) announced a new Twitter ad platform today.
