Click on the image above to try GetResponse for free for 30 days
Don't get me wrong - I loved the experience of using GetResponse - there was some learning curve, but if you can read simple instructions, it's really simple, no longer than 30 minutes to learn it.
And I'm still advocating, marketing and recommending customers to use GetResponse email marketing for all their online and offline businesses.
...was simply because I finally realized and tried Solo Build It's internal email marketing system, which is already:
I mean I've heard about it but I failed to connect the dots about actually trying it and using it, and so just yesterday, I clicked on the link and the next page showed this:
Once you've created the mailing list under MailOut Manager (Newsletters), then you need to connect your list-building-system to a Form under Form-Build-It.
The drop down with the word "Preview" allows you to preview all the autoresponders you have written at a glance.
If you want to add, edit or delete email autoresponders, you have to click "Edit" and you will see:
Once you're written your email autoresponder and saved it, you're done!
That's where I have to topup email credits balance, and there are 5 pricing:
So at the most expensive, it's 0.2595 cent per email (a quarter of a cent), and at the best rate is 0.12 cent per email (about an eight of a cent).
The limit is in the message:
Basically you can send out 5000 emails per month...right now, assuming I send an email out to a subscriber every 3 days, that is 10 emails per month.
So I can cater up to 500 subscribers max (500 subscribers x 10 emails per month = 5000 emails per month).
I am not sure if this is the cap limit and if I can request for an upgrade. If this limit is permanent then will be a problem once I have more than 500 subscribers and sure will have to change providers for email marketing.
Also, once you've the the number of days between autoresponders, unfortunately you cannot change it anymore sadly (for now). I set it as every 3 days, so I cant change it to 4 or 5 days anymore (ugh).
For me, I prefer to use Solo Build It's Email Marketing Tool for two main reasons:
#1 I'm a very early and simple user of email marketing, and I'm barely starting.
I just need something very simple, just simple sign up and simple autoresponders.
I don't need the fancy workflows and processes, just very simple sign up for my readers who wants to be on my list to get my insider-only offers, tips, guides and promotions.
I also have less than 500 subscribers and/or send less than 5000 emails per month, so that's ok for now.
Please be mindful of the restriction of Solo Build It's MailOut Manager too ya, but if you're already an SBI user and looking to start your email marketing, their MailOut Manager is a great place to start.
If you're already a Solo Build It user, and a simple/beginning your email
marketing outreach, then you can consider using their priced/built-in
MailOut Manager for the reasons able. Also, if you send out less than 5000 emails per month, this system is ok.
If you are
then I highly recommend you to use GetResponse for their price, high level of service.
