    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.

              11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

              11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

              In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

              Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

              In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

              Minimizing Tabs

              Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

              Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

              Incognito Mode

              Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:


              1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
              2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
              3. Download extension New Incognito Window

              This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

              Save Webpages as PDF Files

              Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

              Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

              Open Recently-closed Tabs

              Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

              One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

              The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.


              Solve Mathematical Problems

              Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

              For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

              Play Media Files

              Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

              In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

              Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

              With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

              Stay Focus(e)d

              Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.


              Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

              With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

              This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

              Grammarly for Editing

              Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

              You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!


              There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.


              There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

              With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

              Chrome Calendar Extension

              No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

              Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

              Final Thoughts

              Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
