GetResponse is an email marketing solution that offers easy email campaigns, landing pages, and marketing automation all-in one tool. GetResponse has grown from a basic email marketing tool to one offering detailed analytics, split testing, and advanced automations.


Who GetResponse is For:

GetResponse is a great email marketing solution used by any and every type of small business including online course creators. It’s the solution that continually adds to their feature set allowing them to move from email autoresponder to a full marketing suite.

Skill Level:

GetResponse is intuitive and easy to use. You can definitely get your email campaigns up and running with GetResponse with minimal help, but if you need help they offer tutorials and fast response times.


You can access your GetResponse account from your online dashboard. In addition, they offer mobile apps where you can manage your list, send emails, monitor forms and landing pages, and more. Their apps are fairly advanced compared to the apps offered by other email marketing tools.

Special Features:

GetResponse has always been easy to use and a favorite email marketing tool for many. They now offer fully responsive landing page templates designed for high conversion and customization with ShutterStock images. They also offer a countdown timer you can add to your pages. Their A/B testing feature is also a nice addition.


I’ve really not seen many disadvantages with GetResponse. As they grow and expand their feature list I’d be on the look out for whether or not it becomes too complex. Right now their prices are still very competitive (and in many cases, they are less than other big names) and they really offer a great feature set with ease of use. Nothing really to complain about here!
