Craig has found that each of his businesses benefited greatly because of GetResponse.
I’ve used the platform for several different reasons and different businesses, simultaneously. It’s nice because I could create lists that were separate to each one of the entities, and then I could separate and build segments as I went along.Craig Colley

This not only saves Craig’s time but also ensures he stays consistent and relevant to his audience.
With the automation feature, he can easily sequence resends, follow-up emails, and automated responses.
One of my best examples is that I’ve done a comparison of sending an email out to a group, and then the nonresponses get an email again. The nonresponders from that group then get another email, and the fourth time, over a two-week period of time, I found that by doing that I will have another 30% opens!Craig Colley
Since Craig owns several different businesses, whose customers are unlikely to overlap, he appreciates GetResponse’s list management tools. List building allows him to collect and save customer data into separate lists. Segmenting customer data into different lists ensures that the information he sends out goes only to those it is relevant to. claims that this has resulted in a higher conversion to sales and more business growth.

I probably use the forms more than anything, to drive leads from things that I send out. … Even if it’s just collecting an email for a free pdf, I can capture the data that then goes into a pre-created segmented list.Craig Colley
GetResponse has a user-friendly interface, with tools that are simple to learn and use. Features like landing pages with lead magnets and forms are easy to set up. Moreover, customer support is quick and helpful in assisting with any kind of query or problem.
The customer support has always been very good and very fast. And it’s nice that all the chats are saved so I can go back and reference [them]. I can just go back to my chats notes and it’ll [answers to questions] be there and links to answers and so on.Craig Colley
