This is a review of Getresponse by an actual customer.
I’ve been trying every list-building technique in the book. More subscribers =more potential sales every month.
The Good about get response:
Giving visitors lots of creative ways to sign up for my list. So I’ve been exploring the collection of form types included in my GetResponse email marketing account.
For example, on my blog, I can create a scroll form that follows the reader as they scroll down the page — a friendly reminder to sign up for updates. Or place a fixed-bar form at the top of the reader’s browser, so it’s always in view.
Good: GetResponse includes interesting ways to grab attention — a shake form that … well, it shakes (very gently) to catch the reader’s eye. There’s an exit pop-up form you can set to appear when the reader is leaving your site (to reduce bounces).
Good: They have an image pop-up form that allows you to add a colorful photo or image.
Good: It is so easy to offer a sign-up incentive( like a free ebook, or newsletter or top ten list, etc. I then use a download form that releases the incentive and adds the new subscriber to my emailing list where I can follow up and make other offers.
You can customize these forms. In fact, there’s a Color Magic tool that matches the form colors to the colors on your website or blog automatically.
And any form can be coded to add the new subscriber to the campaign of your choice.
Difficult? Nope. After I finish choosing the settings, I copy a snippet of code and paste it into the website HTML — and there it is, looking great.
Good: You can add custom fields to the form. The extra data is useful for segmenting my list, personalizing messages, and providing dynamic content.
Good: GetResponse has free tools that integrate sign-up forms with everyday social media site like Facebook, Website builds like WordPress, PrestaShop, Joomla, WooCommerce, and many more.
Once you get forms in place, they keep working night and day, week after week.
And if a particular form seems to be under-producing, I can run an A/B split test (create 2 different versions of the form) and then tweak it to find out what works best like changing the headline or graphic to see which one does better.
Good: Getresponse is the only one tested that has webinar functionality
The Bad about getresponse:
Bad: Getresponse is not free but for all the features it is a fair price
Bad: There is a bit of a learning curve.
Bad: The drag and drop interfaces for creating landing pages or forms need improvement.
