Statistics Subscription in Contacts:
  • If you have used google analytics , then this will be looks very easier at the same time very worthable .
  • Because you can watch your subscribers growth in terms chart like view, geographical location of subscribers and more. Also you can filter the chart view like subscribed, not subscribed, list size.
  • Helps to watch in which way you got the subscriber. Whether through Forms,Panel , Landing Page,Email,Import,Leads,API,Forward ,Survey,Mobile and upto you copied and pasted subscriber to another list.
  • This statistics is one part of email marketing but also linked to other modules like contacts and shows graph with its related activity.

List Hygiene

  • It helps to delete contact —"By rule" or “manual” methods.
  • Helps to blacklist spam mails.
  • An example for rule method in list hygiene. Consider you have  a contact in multiple lists (ex:more than 10).Now you want to delete the contact for some reasons.But it is difficult to remove that contact in multiple list.
Suppression Lists
  • Any Inactive contacts in a list can be set to not to get new updates from you but other subscribers  will get the updates.This is the work can do by suppression lists.
  • One important thing you need to be aware in suppressionlists. Considering you have created a suppression list. Now you are sending a newsletter to your subscribers and you are choosing suppression list option before  sending now you can note that the count is not reduced, Don’t consider it.Because the suppression list actullay works.The counting just shows the whole subscribers in that list.

Custom Fields
  • Custom Fields are used in forms.Forms are used to collect subscriber details .Forms are not just only for signups like name and email .It can be used for various purposes .For example if you have laptop related content website you just not endup with simple sighups .And here the custom field comes .You can add another custom  field like radio button whether you have Windows or Apple laptops.

  • Autoresponders helps to send automatic messages to contacts who made
    subscription in the list.
  • Autoresponders can be sent immediately (or) at regular intervals.
  • You can also set to delay (or) not earlier (or) exact time.
What is the simple difference between autoresponder and newsletter?
  • When you are sending a newsletter as a reply message manually for a user who just subscribed to you through forms or other is newsletter method
  • When the above thing is done automatically [ you already created all things and made pre-defined actions (i.e) to send a reply message.when a user subscribes this precreated work will do it for you even if you went out.  It is auto responder method.
If you can understand scheduling in newsletter , you can understand autoresponder very quickly. At the same time we can do big things with autoresponder while combining with automation workflows.

Drafts: It is same as newsletter creation but finally saving it as a draft.

Rss to email:
  • Rss(Rich Site Summary) to email helps to send your blog/ website updates to your getresponse list contacts by an email. Also you can share the Rss feed to social networks.
  • It can be done by pasting blog/website feed url in  Rss to email page.

Statistics was already discussed in contacts.


  • The automation all works are done in the workflow.
  • A workflow is a visual representation helps to communicate your subscribers in different conditions.Actually looks like flow-chart.
  • You can tag them like active and inactive users.
  • Automation workflow have the elements in terms of conditions , actions and range.
  • Example: You can set when a newsletter read by first subscriber he will get my giveaway . So this condition also says indirectly that those who read newsletter from 2 to infinty will not get giveaway. I worked similar to this example for my demo video and it worked flawlessly.
  • Sending particular messages when they open your messages.

My experience with automation workflow:
  • I have created one automation workflow after lot of attempts.Because i am very new to this workflow.At the same time i am happy to get the result at the end.Based on my workflow creation i am sharing some of my points.
  • Each drag and drop blocks are called as Elements. And Each Element have Properties.
  • Most Element has a tick icon [called as “ if yes” connection ] and close icon [called as “ if no” connection ] . Some element has only one tick icon like i have used in automation workflow video.
  • You can connect two elements by dragging a line from first element to second element .Because when you try to drag line from second to first element it will not work.
  • How to disable close icon in an element :Some times you have a element with tick and close icon but you don’t want to use close icon.For this click that element properties and find When to assume the condition wasn’t met and click Never .This will disable the “if no” connection.
  • Very important point in workflow: Sometimes we need to be aware of what we are doing.Otherwise automation will not work. I recommend you to read this Message sent condition in getresponse automation workflow .Now come to our topic in my video i used the condition message sent . To make this whole automation workflow to give result  with the condition message sent we must set scheduling in correct manner . Schedule Time in the newsletter “include recipients” section should be set to less than workflow end time .Be sure you increased  the workflow end time by clicking the automation workflow settings icon. Here i mentioned in terms of hours for my video.
  • You have automation messages in Automation section . It’s not compulsion to create automation messages you can use newsletter , draft or any other and it will become converted automatically to automation messages

In my video i used the second element “message opened”.
