The end of the year is a perfect time to go back in time and recap all the good things that happened and that we are grateful for. Year 2012 was great for the GetResponse team, but all of it couldn’t have happened without you: GetResponse customers, users and fans. That’s why we wanted say THANK YOU and show you how we changed and developed, thanks to you and for you.
Social media is fast becoming a worldwide phenomenon – yet another stage in the evolution of the amazing information platform we call the Web. Opinions vary on its commercial potential, but the fact remains that 6 of the top 10 most-visited websites are social media sites.
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.

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.
This is the first installment in a series of blogs introducing our exciting new features. Today we will talk about GetResponse Multimedia Studio!
