About GetResponse

Email Creator is the heart of the system. Even users with no design or HTML coding skills can produce great-looking newsletters in minutes. They can choose from hundreds of professionally designed templates in a range of styles: serene or sensual, tailored or quirky, playful or button-down corporate. Then they can customize it using easy drag-and-drop technology and send it immediately or schedule worldwide delivery adjusted for local times zones.

GetResponse was the first email marketing provider to introduce true Responsive Design. Every email created on the system automatically adjusts to the screen size of the device used to view it — desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, iOS or Android. Some users have reported open-rate increases of over 50%, enabling them to reach customers, even when they’re on the go.

Ground-breaking Autoresponder 2.0 introduced last year became the basis for an innovative set of automation tools that enable users to run entire marketing campaigns “on autopilot”. An autoresponder series can be a single message or a complex chain of emails sent based on timing or responses to subscriber behavior. This makes it possible to build relationships using targeted emails that are almost like one-to-one communications.

GetResponse continued to set marketing automation trends with Landing Page Creator. It harnesses drag-and-drop technology to enable users to create landing pages in minutes. Mobile-ready landing pages integrate seamlessly with sign-up forms, Facebook fan pages and YouTube videos for squeeze pages that boost their marketing list fast. And with PayPal integration, users can automate the sales process from beginning to end.

“GetResponse was a pioneer in bringing the power of email marketing to the small business market,” said Simon Grabowski. “As we continue to innovate, we’ll keep our focus on the needs of email marketers while adding automation tools to make their life easier and maximize ROI.”
