I’m going to let you know why I believe that GetResponse is an incredible email marketing software.
The reason why I say this is because I keep on seeing time and time again people are getting into the spam folder.
And people are sending emails even to me, it’s going straight into the spam folder, or it’s going straight into the promotions tab.
I’m sending emails to people and it’s getting inboxed 100% of the times.
I’m going to show you how I’m doing that with GetResponse.
I’m going to show you my little tips and secrets in order to get your emails inboxed 100% of the time.
We’re going to go through this and you’re going to love it.
What is GetResponse
First of all, what is GetResponse?
GetResponse is an email marketing software.
I use it just for email marketing, but GetResponse also has all these other functions built in.
You can create webinars.
You can create landing pages.
For me, the main purpose is to get my emails to potential customers.
To get email into their inboxes, not their spam folders, and never into their Promotions Tab.
I’m going to show you exactly how it works.
How to Get Into the Inbox with GetResponse
Inside the GetResponse dashboard you will see a dashboard with
- your contacts
- the email automation
- landing pages
- and CRM (Custome Relationship Management)
These are just some of the ways to convert leads into customers.
I use GetResponse for email marketing.
GetResponse Newsletters and One-Time Emails
There’s two different things you can have here. Newsletters — which are basically emails that you send immediately — one time emails.
For instance, right now, you can just send a blast to all of your email list.
Or, you can click on the autoresponders, which is what I personally love to use.
I’m going to create a new message, and I’m going to try to make it as spammy as possible to show you how I’m getting away with a lot of these words which usually get messages send to the spam folder or the promotions tab.
I’m setting the autoresponder to zero, which means it will go out right away when someone opts into my email list.
I’m going to put it in this email list — there’s nobody in it right now.
You can choose to send the message immediately or enable Monday through Sunday.
Then I choose a message — I’ll go with “re-grow your hair” — let me show you how I create my messages.
The first trick is to put an arrow icon in the subject line. It makes you stand apart from the compeitition, and gets your emails seen.
I have this little icon right here. This just basically makes my emails stand out.
Copy and paste this icon into your subject line.
It’s just another little way to stand apart from all the competition and to get your emails seen.
You can also add other symbols right from the GetResponse subject line symbol dropdown.
Very important to getting inboxed, the “from” email must not be “gmail.”
You need to have a custom domain for your “from” address.
If you want to get inboxed, the biggest secret is that you have to add an SPF record to your domain name registrar.
Start at this GetResponse SPF page:
This will give you GetResponse’s SPF record, which I will show you below as well:
v=spf1 mx a include:_spf.getresponse.com -all
Once you add this SPF record to your domain, you’re going to go to the inbox and not the spam folder.
It’s going to help you out so much.
Using SPF can help you get away with writing interesting subject lines and even writing spammy stuff in your email content.
In your domain DNS settings, add a new TXT record. Use @ for the host. Enter the SPF record. And save.
Another trick I want to give you — drag a text block into your message, and decrease the width.
What I found is that you can do this on GetResponse and it works so effectively.
Decrease the width of your message to 450px.
It’s all going to be smaller.
When people see this, they’re going to be more willing to read the message.
Everyone’s attention span now so short.
But what you can do is space out your email and make the width smaller so that it’s easier for them to read.
When I space out my email, I like to have at least 2 to 3 line spaces between each sentence, or even each thing that I write, the lines might even be just one word long.
My messages are extremely simple.
I like to have it really easy and simple for them to read.
I always use images — these are very easy, just click on the drag and drop from the GetResponse editor right side.
You can delete it, you can move it around.
I like to have a P.S. at the end of my emails.
It’s a call to action.
I put an inspirational quote first.
Then I say, “So take MASSIVE action.”
I use the arrow again.

Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
I am here for your success.
So I always make sure to help people take that action.
The action is going to get you the most sales, and that action is going to help them get the most value.
If you wanted to, you could write an email with spam triggers and it would get delivered.
You could say, “I made over $5,000 per month on auto-pilot from this crazy system. This opportunity comes once in a lifetime.’
This is SO spammy. I would never send this.
But this will make it through to the inbox because of the actions we took described in this article.
So this is why I recommend GetResponse.
It’s extremely simple to use.
It’s an amazing platform.
And your emails will be inboxed if you apply these tricks.
