How can contacts add themselves to my list?

The option to subscribe should be easily accessible on your website and other online marketing channels, such as social media profiles. Here’s a list of GetResponse tools to grow your email marketing database


Each form is assigned to a particular list.  To create a form, select Menu>>Forms and surveys and click Create form. Follow the steps then copy and paste the HTML or JavaScript code into your website. Contacts sign up for the list by submitting the form. Make sure forms stand out from the rest of your content, clearly visible from six feet away, so prospective subscribers notice it first. Include complete information about incentives to subscribe. Quick Tip: If you use WordPress, our plugin lets you embed a sign-up form in seconds.

Landing pages

Don’t have a website? No HTML knowledge? No problem! Use Landing pages to create an eye-catching web page, complete with a sign-up form visitors can’t resist. In the Menu, choose Landing pages then click Create landing page. Apply your settings, choose a predesigned template, and customize it using the editor. Click Save & Publish, and your page is ready to go.

Social media

Social media sites have become effective places to collect email addresses:

  • publish your newsletter and RSS-to-email on your Twitter and Facebook accounts. First, integrate your social media accounts under Menu>>Integrations. In the Settings step of Email Creator, turn ON those integrations at the bottom of the page. Your messages will be published automatically on the selected social media sites, with a Subscribe button to enable social contacts to subscribe.
  • add social sharing buttons to your messages


When you create a webinar, you receive a unique link, which you can share in social media, place on your blog, or send via email.


When creating a survey, choose the sign-up form as one of your questions from the list of question types. You not only collect subscriber information, you also capture their email address.

Web archive page

Promote your web archive page — a newsletter directory where visitors can read your newsletters and subscribe to your lists

Conversion funnels

When you create Conversion funnels, you can add people to your list by having them sign up first through a form on your landing page. That can be done by going to Menu >> Conversion funnel >> Create funnel and choosing the funnel you need to create (Sales funnel, List building funnel or Webinar funnel). More on creating different types of funnels can be found here.
