    All Your Email Processes Are Automated

    Automating email processes reduces drastically the time spent in interacting with client activity after you have designed your mail using the over 1000 stock images at your disposal and forwarding it to your clients. For example, if you send a shopping list mail, automatically the client can be sent a mail if he or she did not open the mail after 2 days or he/she opens the mail but did not click on any of the links and lots more. Manually going through the steps for each client can be very time-consuming, but with GetResponse you can save a lot of time and get to see your client’s interaction with your product using the analytics.

    The workflow planner is a great feature in GetResponse that makes it very easy for you to plan your emails and it works with a principle of “if this, then that”. You can create processes in the planner with your already made content, and the system automatically updates the entire tools you have access to if you change or update your plan. The workflow planner makes use of filters, triggers and conditions.


      Automatic Email Sending

      This ensures your audience gets your emails automatically, at stipulated times by you without you manually sending them at that time. It involves you setting it up and allowing the system to go through this process for you. Segmentation can also be done whereby the mail is structured in such a way that it is segmented towards each audience based on what they are interested in. This feature is present in all GetReponse packages and not limited to one. This increases your conversion rate drastically.



        Amazing Webiner Software

        The webinar software is a tool designed for you to follow-up on your leads and increase your conversion rate. This saves you cost to buy an extra software to collect leads with your clients. The webinar consists of polls, file sharing, chats and video. It consists of a chat feature, polls, image and file sharing, whiteboards and saving as YouTube videos which makes extra content for your business. You can also schedule your sessions, follow-up and keep in touch with your leads.


          Easy To Use Page Builder

          The unique page builder allows you to create awesome landing pages choosing from hundreds of responsive templates already provided, all you need to do is just tweak the template to customize it. You do not need to know how to code because you are not even going to see any of that. All you need to do is just adjust the settings and move a few things around (drag and drop). This saves a lot of money because you do not need the services of any professional web designer to build a landing page for your product. One important feature of the page builder is that, it does not need plugins for you to build your sign-up form, this is not so for other online marketing platforms. With an awesome and unique landing page, your conversion rate increases and your client keep coming back for more. They are also optimized for mobile, which makes it looks awesome on mobile devices too.



            Track Your Traffic

            This ensures that activities by your customers on your website are at your disposal. You also get to know if a client does not complete the purchase and get an idea of why it happened that way and ways you can fix it. The analytics also show you the amount of visitors on your website, the clicking rates, conversion rates and much more. This saves you money of having to get a third-party to measure up the traffic and engagements.

            Also, you can conduct surveys on where your traffic is coming from,this will include their needs and what they want to carry out by visiting your site. The survey can easily be created by you filling a form and adding a thank you page. After the survey is carried out, GetResponse then analyzes and interprets the data in charts for you.



              In Conclusion

              Disclaimer: I have no material connection, financial stake for GetResponse. I am just a GetResponse user who wants to share my experience.

              7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

              7 Tools to Help Keep Track of Goals and Habits Effectively

              Now that 2011 is well underway and most people have fallen off the bandwagon when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions (myself included), it’s a good time to step back and take an honest look at our habits and the goals that we want to achieve.

              Something that I have learned over the past few years is that if you track something, be it your eating habits, exercise, writing time, work time, etc. you become aware of the reality of the situation. This is why most diet gurus tell you to track what you eat for a week so you have an awareness of the of how you really eat before you start your diet and exercise regimen.

              Tracking daily habits and progress towards goals is another way to see reality and create a way for you clearly review what you have accomplished over a set period of time. Tracking helps motivate you too; if I can make a change in my life and do it once a day for a period of time it makes me more apt to keep doing it.

              So, if you have some goals and habits in mind that need tracked, all you need is a tracking tool. Today we’ll look at 7 different tools to help you keep track of your habits and goals.

              Joe’s Goals



                Joe’s Goals is a web-based tool that allows users to track their habits and goals in an easy to use interface. Users can add as many goals/habits as they want and also check multiple times per day for those “extra productive days”. Something that is unique about Joe’s Goals is the way that you can keep track of negative habits such as eating out, smoking, etc. This can help you visualize the good things that you are doing as well as the negative things that you are doing in your life.

                Joe’s Goals is free with a subscription version giving you no ads and the “latest version” for $12 a year.



                  is an in depth way of counting things that you do during the day and then presenting them to you in many different reports and groups. With Daytum you can add several different items to different custom categories such as work, school, home, etc. to keep track of your habits in each focus area of your life.


                  Daytum is extremely in depth and there are a ton of settings for users to tweak. There is a free version that is pretty standard, but if you want more features and unlimited items and categories you’ll need Daytum Plus which is $4 a month.

                  Excel or Numbers

                    If you are the spreadsheet number cruncher type and the thought of using someone else’s idea of how you should track your habits turns you off, then creating your own Excel/Numbers/Google spreadsheet is the way to go. Not only do you have pretty much limitless ways to view, enter, and manipulate your goal and habit data, but you have complete control over your stuff and can make it private.

                    What’s nice about spreadsheets is you can create reports and can customize your views in any way you see fit. Also, by using Dropbox, you can keep your tracker sheets anywhere you have a connection.



                      I must admit, I am an Evernote junky, mostly because this tool is so ubiquitous. There are several ways you can implement habit/goal tracking with Evernote. You won’t be able to get nifty reports and graphs and such, but you will be able to access your goal tracking anywhere your are, be it iPhone, Android, Mac, PC, or web. With Evernote you pretty much have no excuse for not entering your daily habit and goal information as it is available anywhere.

                      Evernote is free with a premium version available.

                      Access or Bento

                        If you like the idea of creating your own tracker via Excel or Numbers, you may be compelled to get even more creative with database tools like Access for Windows or Bento for Mac. These tools allow you to set up relational databases and even give you the option of setting up custom interfaces to interact with your data. Access is pretty powerful for personal database applications, and using it with other MS products, you can come up with some pretty awesome, in depth analysis and tracking of your habits and goals.

                        Bento is extremely powerful and user friendly. Also with Bento you can get the iPhone and iPad app to keep your data anywhere you go.


                        You can check out Access and the Office Suite here and Bento here.

                        Analog Bonus: Pen and Paper

                        All these digital tools are pretty nifty and have all sorts of bells and whistles, but there are some people out there that still swear by a notebook and pen. Just like using spreadsheets or personal databases, pen and paper gives you ultimate freedom and control when it comes to your set up. It also doesn’t lock you into anyone else’s idea of just how you should track your habits.


                        I can’t necessarily recommend which tool is the best for tracking your personal habits and goals, as all of them have their quirks. What I can do however (yes, it’s a bit of a cop-out) is tell you that the tool to use is whatever works best for you. I personally keep track of my daily habits and personal goals with a combo Evernote for input and then a Google spreadsheet for long-term tracking.

                        What this all comes down to is not how or what tool you use, but finding what you are comfortable with and then getting busy with creating lasting habits and accomplishing short- and long-term goals.
