IS “GET RESPONSE” A SCAM?
Are you just getting started with online marketing? Or maybe you’ve been at it for awhile and you’re looking for a good autoresponder. You could easily pick GetResponse but you want to know if it’s really good. Is it the best? Or is it a scam?
I’m going to review it for you and tell you everything you need to know in order to make a decision based on “facts” – not “hype.” I’ll go over exactly what they offer, how it works, how much it costs, and other side benefits that are included with the GetResponse offer. The review will be based on my actual usage.
GET RESPONSE REVIEW
In searching for autoresponders you’ll always find GetResponse at the top of the list. Internet Marketers, both professionals and newbies alike, trust them to provide a consistent and user friendly experience every time. They don’t hesitate to recommend GetResponse and are quick to tell you, GETRESPONSE is NOT A SCAM! It’s the real deal!
After constantly upgrading and improving their platform, they now boast one of the most powerful autoresponders in the business.
If you’re just starting out and completely new to autoresponders, let me explain the invaluable service they provide. An autoresponder is software that allows you to send out automated emails to those people who have signed up to your email list.
HOW IT WORKS
Suppose you have a business selling purebred kittens. GetResponse enables you to post an offer on your website inviting prospects to sign up for a free newsletter all about your business. When your prospects respond, GetResponse starts building your list and sending out your newsletters, emails, etc. according to your instructions, automatically.
Choosing GetResponse , you are free to set up a series of pre-written emails and have them sent to your list on a timeline you choose. For example, one day after a person signs up you may schedule your first email. Thereafter every new person who signs up will get that first email. The next email in your series could be scheduled two days later, or three, or four, or however many days you choose. You can continue this series of automatic emails for as far out as you want and as long as you want.
All the while you are continuing to build your list with potential customers who have agreed to receive your emails. You have the ability to contact them with your specials, closeouts, or anything else you like, – anytime you like.
There’s an old axiom in the business that says…”the money is in the list” The larger your list grows, the more money you stand to make. There are other considerations, of course, but by and large the axiom is true and having a good auto responder is essential to your success.
HOW MUCH DOES GETRESPONSE COST?
GETRESPONSE offers 4 payment plans.
1) BASIC – $15/mo.
2) PLUS – $49/mo.
3) PROFESSIONAL – $99/mo.
4) ENTERPRISE – $1199/mo.
Each plan allows you a 30 day free trial. For many marketers the Basic Plan serves their purposes until they learn the system and are ready to upgrade.
All plans have incremental increases based upon your list size. For example the Base plan is $15 per month until your list reaches 2500 subscribers at which time it increases to $25/mo.
When you upgrade the list prices increase but you also receive additional benefits. For most marketers I would recommend starting out with the base plan and then upgrading to PLUS when your list increases to 2500 subscribers.
HOW TO GET SIGNUPS
Will people sign up easily? NO! The trick to getting signups, as I have learned, is to offer a “freebie” in return for them signing up. This freebie should be something of value to them, closely related to the subject they responded to.
For example, if people are responding to an article you’ve written about Internet Marketing, the freebie should be closely related to that. You might offer a “free” course on “Affiliate Marketing” or a report such as “The 7 worst mistakes beginners make when starting an Online Business” – Anything that encourages a visitor to put in his name and email address is what you should be looking for. And, incidentally, GetResponse sets all that up for you. With their “drag and drop” system of creating emails and “fill-in-the-blanks” email templates it couldn’t be any easier for a newbie to complete with the big boys.
MY CONCLUSIONS ON GETRESPONSE – IS IT WORTH IT?
GETRESPONSE is one of the best auto responders you can get, – however, you must keep this in mind; GETRESPONSE is only worth it after your website begins to get traffic. My advice? – You don’t need the upgrades right away. Start with the Basic Plan.
