GetResponse for growth hackers

At GetResponse, we understand that growth hackers differ substantially from traditional marketers. Instead of implementing marketing plans and managing worldwide teams, their focus is narrowed to developing early strategies for start-ups. That’s why every decision a growth hacker makes is driven by an obsessive desire to grow. To achieve your goal, you need a full plate of intelligent tools and a large serving of smart techniques, all flavoured with a pinch of cleverness.

Focus on growing your subscriber list.

Start by narrowing your strategy to a single goal that will stimulate growth.

  • Collect email addresses everywhere using built-in tools: from customised forms on landing pages and Facebook to online surveys and mobile apps.
  • Attract attention with humorous exit popups, scroll forms and shake boxes to turn visitors into eager subscribers.
  • Import contacts via API integrations from digital phonebooks, social websites, and emails to introduce your product to your networks.

Attract new visitors to your website.

Optimise your customer lifetime value (CLV) and choose tactics to turn casual visitors into loyal fans.

  • Use web forms on landing pages to build lists through contests and quizzes, incentive offers for sign-ups, and content downloads.
  • Organise webinars with exclusive content and limited seating to maximise interactions and participation.
  • Engage socially by distributing valuable content via email and asking subscribers to share it on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
  • Distribute video presentations in your drip campaigns or add them to your email signature.
  • Distribute blog posts with RSS to email to educate your audience, become a thought leader, and build traffic.
  • Generate unique discount codes with time limits to maximises engagement and subscribe rates.

Continually test and experiment.

Try something new, experiment and optimise – don’t be afraid to take risks.

  • Use A/B testing to learn which subject line or CTA generates more opens and clicks.
  • Segment subscribers into groups by demographic and test to find out how they behave differently.
  • Use your growth-hacking sensibilities to experiment with different content and images and display products that are relevant to your segment.
  • Direct prospects and clients to different landing pages and send them unique offers and personalised discount codes.
