Help Marketing plan - provide the number of Contacts that have emails, per Account!

In the example below, we are using MassImpact’s Object Count feature to discover how many Contacts have an email address, per Account.

This can be helpful to your Marketing Department as they budget and plan for their yearly email campaigns.


To use the attached the scenario in your installation of DemandTools:

  • Save the scenario to the default MassImpact Scenario file path (Documents\DemandToolsData\MassImpact Scenarios) or a place of your choice
  • Access the MassImpact module
  • Click Load Scenario and select the scenario, Count how many Contacts have emails per Account

Below are detailed setup instructions for the attached scenario.

Optional Salesforce Setup:

  • Create a custom field on the Account Object to store the count.
    • Field used in the example: Contacts w/ email address.
    • Note: A custom field is not required as the results do not have to be pushed into Salesforce. Some users opt to export the counts only.
