With only $200 in his pocket, Simon created the first version of GetResponse in 1998 to solve a business problem — he needed an easy way to build an email marketing list and send drip content to customers at regular intervals. The product worked so well that Simon established GetResponse with the mission to bring big-company technologies to small businesses. Over the years, his vision and leadership has attracted a team of over 300 highly-skilled employees to create a comprehensive online marketing platform known for great design, simplicity, and an unmatched user experience. Simon is a serial entrepreneur with a wide knowledge of the digital world and a burning passion for bringing advanced, innovative technology that simply works for the customer.
Meet GetResponse: How Did We Get Here and Where Are We Going Next?
GetResponse has been around for 20 years now – starting from a team of one at an attic in Poland, to more than 300 professionals located in offices around the world, and 350,000 happy customers. We’ve come a long way, from a simple autoresponder tool to a comprehensive platform offering a unique mix of features such as marketing automation, email marketing, landing pages, webinars, and CRM.
In this keynote, Simon and Mike will talk about GetResponse’s history, but – more importantly – its future and the goals for the coming months. And how GetResponse wants to continue changing the face of online marketing for SMBs.
