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

Forms

Each form is assigned to a particular list.  To create a form, choose Forms & surveys in the Dashboard menu 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 Dashboard 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:
– use the GetResponse Facebook App to place a sign-up form on your Facebook Page.
publish a landing page on your Facebook Page
– publish your newsletter and RSS-to-email on your Twitter and Facebook accounts. First, integrate your social media accounts under Profile>>Integrations & API>>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

Webinars

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.

Surveys

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.
