GetResponse – A Complete Marketing Solution for Bloggers/Businesses

Creating a blog and writing a fabulous content in it is not the hardest part of all blogging. In fact, it is the best part of blogging that you can do to deliver the excellent content molded into some beautiful shape.

The real hardness of blogging comes with the promotion of the content and building the subscribers to your site. Yes! If you cannot get enough traffic for your diamond-valued content, you are doing it for no reason.

One of the best ways of getting traffic is gaining the same readers to your blog. Some reader would want to visit your blog very often. They want to be notified about your recent content and read them first before anyone else.

How are you going to hold them tight and treat them special? Do you know the ways to increase the Email contacts and update them about the new posts?

As you are thinking, social media promotion such as sharing posts on to your fan pages, groups, and micro-blogging profiles will be great, but how far they are going to get the updates displayed on their walls and news feed?

Do you think they will enter the group every day for an update and get upset if you don’t? That is not the right strategy I would say.

Can’t I auto share the blog updates onto social media?

Of course, you can share your blog updates automatically, but how better they are displayed on the newsfeed of your subscribers? I hope you are aware of the social media auto-manual updates filtering algorithms that were announced in the times.

The point is

What am I saying is that you would need a complete marketing tool that encourages your followers/visitors to subscribe to your email updates is the best and most used method of blog post promotion of even today. It is used by many successful bloggers in the current blogging world.

It’s not just about email marketing

Email marketing, which is what we call it with a name, is not all about shooting emails with the new content updates; it is about the connection that you have with your readers. A series of the same kind of updates from you would let the subscribers lose the interest anymore that is fatal for your blog marketing.

That is why you need a tool that does its best job in maintaining the relationship with your subscribers. I’d recommend GetResponse, the best one-stop tool for the digital marketers and bloggers for effective list building and communicate with their contacts.

If you’re a brand marketer like me, you can get benefited from GetResponse in the following ways.

  1. You can improve the traffic from your consistent readers by turning them into subscribers.
  2. You can build a loyal readers list that brings you confirming sales from your links inside the articles.
  3. You can even create attractive, informative landing pages, webinars, and opt-in forms for your blog and promotional pages to grab your visitors’ attention and get more subscribers to the list.

I have already made a comprehensive comparison of three leading Email marketing service providers, GetResponse Vs MailChimp Vs ConstantContact where I have evaluated their remarkable features.

  • Hey Atish!

    It’s always a good idea to go beyond your imagination. We can build a whole new world of business within a particular blog. Initially, we think about to what to write on a blog and then a very long journey will take place. Marketing comes at the end when you are settled down well with your blog. It was an interesting read and we all should implement them all in our professional life! Thanks for the share!
