In the second edition of our new features blog, we’d like to introduce you to Online Surveys. Now most of you are familiar with surveys, and some of you may use survey applications from time to time, but with GetResponse 6.0, you get a fully integrated survey tool to use as often as you want.
As of July 20th, GetResponse has made the following change to how duplicate subscriptions are handled:
If a person who’s already signed up adds their email address again to the same campaign, they are reset to the beginning of the follow-up cycle and emails are sent to them from the beginning (this may include the confirmation email and/or the “day 0″ instant response).
1. email@example.com signs up to list “abc” for the first
time on January 1st, and gets the instant (day 0) response.
2. By January 9, firstname.lastname@example.org receives 8 out of 9
follow-up emails from GR (so his cycle status is
3. On January 10, he resubscribes. His cycle is
therefore RESET to 0/9 and he gets the “day 0″
4. The cycle goes on…
Re-entering Information Via Imports
When a duplicate is imported to the list – we check if there are any new custom fields for this email address at the new subscription – we update it. Cycle is not reset in this case.
