I have an online business that depends mostly on the success of my email marketing campaigns. Half a dozen separate campaigns are running all the time.
I generated an average of 2.5% to 3% and I thought it was the best I could get.
My open rate used to be up to 20%! I had been running my email marketing campaigns successfully for 5 years and never thought of changing to any other platform.
It was after so many years that I thought of finding out what other solutions are out there in the market and I came across GetResponse.
Now after using it for the last 1 year, I am thinking – why I didn’t find it earlier?
GetResponse made a claim of having over 0.35 million customers, a billion subscribers, and reach across over 180 countries.
My target market comprises of North America, and a year after I started using it, I have everything positive to say about it!
My Custom Landing Pages
GetResponse allows me to create my own landing pages in just a few minutes. I am not an IT person. The builder’s interface is so simple and can be used by anyone like me.
All the pages I design are responsive and I don’t have to make any extra efforts for mobile compatibility!
There are hundreds of templates and I enjoy choosing something new every time. It’s more fun working with GetResponse, as it helps me generate better response rate than ever!
I could also edit all the photos used in the pages and create unique web forms. GetResponse allows me to create attention-grabbing and compelling squeeze page generators that help me capture more user data and leads.
There are many things that I can do with GetResponse’s:
- I can embed youtube videos to my sales pages
- I can add social media sharing buttons on my pages so that my visitors can share my page on Facebook and Twitter
- I have also added paypal button on my pages to enable instant shopping (this feature has helped me generate a decent percentage of my sales!)
The Email Creator
As already mentioned, I love playing with colors, photos and creating something unique. GetResponse gives me more creativity options with an intuitive and full-fledged email creator!
Again there is no limit to the number of templates I can choose to create may emails. And the response is exceptional because of this factor! The thrill of creating something different and getting great response is something so gratifying with GetResponse’s email creation interface.
GetResponse assures me 99% email deliverability, and I think they are true in their claim! They have some systems that help in detecting all spammers and block their accounts. This is a beneficial thing for online businesses like mine.
They also claims that it has feedback based relationships with the leading ISPs, which is a crucial factor in ensuring that my emails are not classified as spam. It can be so difficult nowadays to get through to the target audiences’ inbox, but GetResponse has made it easier for me because of its reputation.
The company has been offering email marketing services since 1998, and I think they have a solid reputation in the industry!
And my email analytics also show that they are correct in their claims of email deliverability!
