  • Email Marketing – Should I Switch

    Posted by Marilyn Zink on November 15, 2021 at 12:33 pm

    Hello all – I have a question about email marketing. I currently use GetResponse and wondering if I should switch to MailerLite.
    I don’t get enough opens with my list and it doesn’t seem like my entire list is getting sent. My list is growing slowly through my website. I sent traffic to a landing page using Thrive Architect and software with ConvertPlus.
    However I’ve noticed MailerLite has some nice optin templates and training on how to do a paid newsletter subscription to integrate it with Stripe, etc.
    I often struggle integrating the various tech pieces.
    I wonder what experience others have had with MailerLite and GetResponse.

    Thanks
    Marilyn

    I do prefer MailerLite over GetResponse. And I’ve heard (second hand) that the delivery/open rates on MailterLite are pretty good.

    That said, have you considered FluentCRM? It is all “in house” on your site and you’d send via something like Amazon. Save yourself money, most likely.

    There are no fancy templates with FluentCRM, though. So, that may be a factor for you.

    Hi David:

    I missed this, sorry, my apologies.
    I have considered Fluent CRM – though I don’t know if that can let me add forms and optin popups.

    I’m looking at doing popups and optin forms with GetResponse plugin.
    I’ve been using Convert Plus and haven’t been getting a lot of signups with that.

    I want to try different optins with different topics to see what converts better.
    I currently don’t have any on my site at the moment.

    Thinking of using a free herbal recipe optin or perhaps something on herbal health tips.

    I sent you a support ticket about setting up a membership site.

    Sincerely

      FluentCRM is just the email list software. Forms would need to be handled by something else, but there’s a ton of ways to do that.
