Who Is It For?

Anyone who wants to grow their online business.
With their suite of tools, they will help grow your sales and help you to succeed with your online marketing campaigns.

Top Features

Email Marketing

Email Marketing is a must if you want to build a list of subscribers and increase your sales.  In just a few simple steps, GetResponse allows you to create professionally looking campaigns so it’s great if you’re starting out or an experienced Internet Marketer.

Do you get annoyed when you hit SPAM on an email only for another email from the same company or person arrives the next day?  Well, GetResponse automatically removes subscribers who mark your email as spam, to protect your reputation and ensure future deliveries.

I think this is a GREAT feature as it shows loyalty.  Who’s to tell? … this customer may decide to subscribe to your list again.

If you’re like me, I like to check my emails first thing in the morning as I view this as a high priority.  Most people I know tend to do this before they carry out any other task to ‘get it out of the way’.  So what if your emails can arrive first thing in the morning to your subscribers regardless of where in the world they live?    With GetResponse Time Travel, you can do this!

No fiddly around with time zones or tools, just a little bit of GetResponse magic does the job.  You can reach your subscribers with a targeted offer when they are most responsive and most likely to convert.

Marketing Automation

Have you ever shopped online and not complete the purchase only to receive an email shortly after to say that you added an item to the cart but didn’t make a purchase?  I have.   Sometimes I get interrupted or I get the blue screen of death on my computer and forget what I was doing.  It’s nice to be reminded that I was actually about to purchase something.

GetResponse allows for this.  You may be an eCommerce site and are losing money by not reminding customers that they haven’t committed their order.  Gone are those days – now, you can track and react to abandoned baskets, completed purchases and so much more.

Landing Pages

Those one-page websites with the sign-up offer look so attractive and appealing!

Have you wished for something like that for your online business but didn’t pursue the idea as they look like something created by an expert. Well, if I told you that you can create something like that using GetResponse, would you be brave enough to try GetResponse for free?  Continue reading before you do as you’re in for more surprises!

These pages really work well if you want to drive more online sales and attract new customers to your business.

These pages are fully responsive and GetResponse has over 150 ready-made templates you can use with their easy drag-and-drop design.  You can use these templates to create web pages for opt-in, thank you, sales pages, promo pages,  download pages, ‘About Me’ pages, webinars and so much more in less than 10 minutes all without any code.


Want to talk face-to-face with prospective clients and nurture existing customers at the same time?  What better way than through a webinar.

As more and more businesses are conducted online, this technology will boost your sales and provide peace of mind when you need to contact existing customers.   As a webinar user, I know how effective they are; you can reach a host of customers at one time with this low-cost solution.

Also, I’d like to believe that as a business owner, you want to provide greater customer satisfaction.  Having worked with Suppliers in the past, webinar sessions were conducted when issues arose with their products.  9 times out of 10, they were resolved quickly by a webinar session.  ‘Seeing’ what is being done helps, rather than guessing or even misinterpreting the issue.  This saves a lot of time and wasted energy.

Customer Relationship Management – CRM

GetResponse has a built-in CRM system which allows you to keep a track of your contacts allowing you to pinpoint when it’s a good time to sell to them.

Different statuses allow you to plan every message so you can target your customer at the point when they are ready to make a purchase.

Forms and Surveys

With custom sign-up forms and handy list-building apps, you will stand out from the crowd by exploding your list of subscribers.

You can create forms to match your brand.  These forms can appear on scroll, pop-up, exit and more on your website.

By using the surveys, you can learn more about your contacts and tweak your marketing message to suit them.

By adding custom fields to your forms and surveys, you are able to analyze your audience by creating advanced search criteria.

With this information, you can use this data to create maximum personalization and razor-sharp email targeting.

List Building and Management

Do you have contacts in another source that you would like to be included on your list?  No need to worry.  With one click, you can import your contacts directly to your email campaigns with the features within the List Building module.

Analytics and Optimisation

Have you ever received an email and you can’t read it on your mobile device?  That’s really annoying especially if you can see some of the content and it looks interesting.  With GetResponse, they have thought about this.

With their Inbox Preview tool, you can see how your email looks for iPhones, iPads and Android devices before you hit that Send button.  Not only that, some mail clients block certain content like newsletters so you can also preview your newsletters with the free tool to make sure they’re tested against every major email client such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo and others.

Design Tool

Not everyone has a flair for design and would like a helping hand,  GetResponse is the tool for you.

You can create designer-quality emails and landing pages in minutes without any coding experience.  This will save you huge amounts of money for hiring programmers as this is so easy to do with the drag-and-drop and image editor tools.

You also get access to over 1000 iStock photos and the ability to upload multimedia files.


Do you need to connect to other platforms?  With GetResponse, you can expand your reach by connecting with e-commerce platforms, CRM software and other popular tools with their ready-to-go API integrations.  You have more than 100 to choose from to make your integration seamless.


The pricing option for each monthly package is shown below.  Your pricing will be reduced by 18% if you choose a rolling 12-month contract or a reduction of 30% if you choose a rolling 24-month contract.   Each package is designed to serve a certain number of email contacts as shown by the List Size in the image below.




GetResponse offers Email, Live chat, Training and Ticket support for customers.  Unfortunately, they no longer offer telephone support.

  1. I have not delve into email marketing yet but am planning to subscribe to one soon as my traffic grows every day. However, I am currently having a hard time to decide which autoresponder and email marketing tools is right for me. I actually started with MailChimp before but stopped because they didn’t allow affiliate marketing for their services so that is a bummer. Anyways, thank you for this review, I will be sure to check it out!

    • Hi Rab,
      Thanks for your comment.
      Yes.  Mailchimp is stricter with what you can promote via your email campaign.

      It’s great that you can check AWeber and GetResponse for free.
      I hope you check them out to enable you to  make a wise choice.

      Best Regards

  2. Hey Jackie

    Great post on GetResponse. I like the way you explain in detailed the different features and benefits its offers. It sounds like a great product.

    I am more familiar with Aweber. It is also very easy to use and they provide excellent support. You can join for free for a week or so I think to try it out there after you will have to pay $19 monthly fee.

    • Hi Rabia,
      Thanks for your comment. I have yet to try Aweber but I am currently investigating this email marketing software and will be reviewing this alongside GetResponse to see which one is a better option. Look out for the post in a few days!

      Thanks for the info.

  3. I’ve been using Aweber for quite sometime now but thinking of changing over. I like that they actually offer landing pages, whereas Aweber does not. The interface seems much easier as well. Since they offer a free trial I might give it a go anyway and see if I like it or not. Thanks a lot for researching all of this!

    • Hi Brandon,
      Thanks for your comment. I checked out Aweber but decided to go with GetResponse as they were more cost-effective for me as a beginner. I’ve not yet used all the features of GetResponse but I really like the landing page and web pages modules. I can’t wait to implement them!
      The interface is really intuitive so it was easy for me to find my way around.

      Go ahead and check out the free trial. You may like it. The beauty about GetResponse, is that you won’t lose all your contacts as you’ll be able to import them using the List Building module.

      Wishing you all the best with your email marketing campaign!

  4. Wow! This is so informative. I realized there is still so much to learn about internet marketing. I will definitely check out GetResponse Thank you!

    • Hi Gigi,
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Yes. There is so much to learn about IM and things are continuing to evolve. If we don’t keep up-to-date, we may miss out on something new which may help push our businesses in the right direction.
      Go ahead and check it out. There is a free trial which you can access here

      Wishing you success in your online journey!

  5. I am new to the internet marketing business and need to choose an email marketing platform. I especially like the access to istock photos. Do you have any idea how it compares to aweber?

    • Hi Tammye,
      Welcome to the world of IM!
      Thanks for stopping by.
      GetResponse has some really great features and as you mentioned, the inclusion of iStock photos.
      I have not used Aweber but I will check it out and possibly do a comparison between the two programs.

      Wishing you success in your online business.
