Are you looking for an email marketing software, but confused which tool will be best for you. In this blog, I will walk through the software GetResponse and will do an in-depth review of GetResponse.
So that after reading this blog you’ll know exactly if this software is the right thing for your business.
As this is a review blog, I’m gonna focus on giving you a quick overview of the software and also share with you my personal experiences that I’ve had with it the past one years that I’ve been using it.
The goal here is to give you a feel for the software so that you can eventually decide if you actually wanna go with GetResponse for your individual business. Let’s start with the GetResponse Review
Overview of GetResponse
Getresponse is an email marketing app that allows you to: create a mailing list and capture data onto it. create newsletters that can be sent to the subscribers on your mailing list. I also help you create landing pages.
Simon Grabowski is the CEO and founder of GetResponse. With only $200 in his pocket, Simon created the first version of GetResponse in 1998 to solve a business problem he needed an easy way to build an email marketing list and send drip content to customers at preset intervals.
So the first thing that you see when you log in to your GetResponse account is your dashboard.
You can customize your dashboard by adding different widgets and moving them around to wherever you want to. Personally, I like to see an overview of all the different email lists that I currently have and also see some stats about the last newsletter that I sent out to my email subscribers.
When you start using the software, the easiest way to navigate through it is by clicking on the menu button on the top-left corner, there you see all the main tools of GetResponse.
Organizing your Email List
The way you organize your email contacts within GetResponse is by adding them to different lists. So the first thing that you need to do is create a new email list.
If you already have an email list, you can either add each email address manually or I recommend you can just import your entire email list.
Once you’ve created a new list or inputted your existing email list, you can set up the emails that you wanna send out to your subscribers.
To write and design your emails, you’ll be using the drag and drop email editor within GetResponse.
Whether you create an email for a newsletter, an autoresponder or an automation message you’ll always go through the email editor to create it. You can choose from tons of different templates for all kinds of different sectors.
Personally, I find all of them look quite professional and if you have a company and wanna send out such kind of newsletters, it’s really easy to just change the text and get a well-designed newsletter within a couple of minutes. Personally, I like my email to look a little bit more personal, which is why I mostly just start with a blank template and just add some text without a lot of designs. Inside of the editor, you can just drag a text box into your Canvas and edit the text.
There are also other things you can add to your email like for example, images, buttons or social media links. You’ll also get a preview of what your email will look like when opening it from a smartphone. Personally, I like this email editor and I never really had any problems with it.
You can do a lot of fancy stuff with this, but I personally just use it for simple text emails with a couple of links and maybe one or two images max. Within GetResponse there are basically three different ways you can automate your emails.
GetResponse actually tracks whenever your email subscribers open your emails and then determines the best time to send out your email to each individual subscriber. So by activating the perfect timing feature for your newsletter,
you can pretty easily increase your open rates by just clicking this button. And it also helps to not end up in the spam folder because you’re not sending out all of the emails at once.
You can also set up an entire email workflow for your email subscribers.
GetResponse also has a tool that you can use to build landing pages, forms and surveys.
I personally only use the landing page tool, which works quite similarly to the drag and drop email editor.
There you also have tons of different templates you can choose from. Designing a landing page is quite easy and you do have all the basic functions you need.
However, if you’ve been using software like ClickFunnels to build your landing pages, you’ll notice that there is room to improve here on GetResponse. What I’m missing, for example, is the possibility to split test different landing pages, which you can do in software like ClickFunnels, but I currently do use to GetResponse landing page tool to save some money on yet
another subscription service.
However, if you do wanna use another software to create your landing pages, you can easily integrate them with GetResponse so that everyone who signs up on your landing page will be automatically added to your email list within GetResponse.
Nowadays you can actually use GetResponse as an all-in-one email marketing solution.
They recently added a feature called Autofunnel that allows you to create sales funnels and basically do everything from Facebook ads to landing pages and checkout pages within GetResponse. This Comes to the end of the GetResponse Review
GetResponse is a great tool for email marketing and it will help you a lot in your business. this was the in-depth review of the GetResponse. Hope it helped you in making your decision in purchasing the tool.
