Join Us in the Social Sharing Revolution

First, we introduced Social Media Integration. Then we launched Advanced Email Analytics. The next step is quite obvious — here comes Social Share Analytics inside GetResponse! Now we’ve given you tools to take control of the velocity and reach of your email campaigns in social media – all from one dashboard.

Up to now, you’ve been able to follow the performance of your email marketing from the Email Analytics dashboard inside GetResponse. You can see who opens your emails, who clicks the links, and who doesn’t read them at all.

Now we’re creating a bigger (and more complete) picture of your email campaigns. You can measure the buzz your campaigns generate across the Web and get to know which social channels are most popular with your audience.




But first…

Before we can give you social stats, we have to capture data. So your first task is to make it easy for your subscribers to share your newsletters.

Did somebody say easy? Hey, easy is what we do best!

Simply add sharing buttons inside your emails to make it easy for your subscribers to share your messages in social media.

As you’ll notice, the “Social sharing” tab inside new Email Creator has grown considerably. There are new share buttons — Facebook, Twitter, Google +, LinkedIn and Pinterest— and combinations of those sites.

Choose individual buttons or ready-made sets — just drag and drop them into your newsletter template while editing it.


What happens when readers share?

Sharing helps your newsletter circulate outside your subscriber group to resonate with completely new audiences. That’s actually like growing your email list overnight.

Social sharing makes your emails more effective; (remember what we said about social sharing and CTRs?) Isn’t it true that you tend to trust the recommendations of your friends more?

If your audience is engaged enough to share, it means their audiences probably will share too, and the social reach of your emails will grow.

And, the best part is, you can now measure this reach.

Which gets me to the point where I can finally announce: you now have access to your . . .


Social Share Analytics!

Inside your Email Analytics tab is a goldmine of social sharing analytical data to help you find out how your newsletters resonate across the Web.



You can count individual actions on the different social networks and identify the impact of your emails in each network.

You can see the total shares on various platforms – Facebook likes, Tweets, Pins, LinkedIn Shares and +1s. If you share your newsletter on your own Facebook page, you’ll also see how many people clicked “Like” on their walls and what comments they made about it.


And what do you do with that knowledge?

Now, that’s a good question. Until recently, most people didn’t believe social media impact could be measured. Then they didn’t know how to do it. Then they came up with the tools. And now you have them at your disposal.

And how does that help you?

Well, first of all, you can find out what reactions your emails trigger among your subscribers. Do they like them (literally)? Do they find them attractive enough to share with their friends and contacts? What comments do they make about them?

Imagine what this knowledge will mean, in terms of helping you improve and tailor your messages to make them more engaging . . . and more sharable!

You’ll also gain a greater understanding of which social media channels work best for your audience — whether they are Twitter influencers or hardcore Pinners — and where you should be looking for them. This gives you great insight into where to direct your marketing efforts.

And it’s all inside your GetResponse account NOW!


That’s NOT all folks!

Our Social Share Analytics represent the beginning of a social sharing revolution happening right now at GetResponse – and you’ll be hearing more about it soon.

In the meantime — we’re all very excited here about this Social Sharing Statistics feature. But what we really want to know is: What do YOU think? So, go ahead and tell us!

(AND… share this post around! ;))

(AND… go make beautiful, engaging newsletters that your subscribers will share around the Web.)

Then try out the new Social Share Analytics! It’s your ticket to the social sharing revolution at GetResponse.

    Not working. When I click the FB or twitter button to share the message I get the msg saying the link is broken. Is there a set up I need to do?

  • Carl


    I have a few quick questions regarding the social feature outlined above. Can you include the ‘stats’ in the email? eg. show the like button within the email and the number of ‘likes’ it has received.

    Does Getresponse have a feature to automate sending blog posts as soon as they are posted to a WordPress blog and could these social buttons be incorporated in the template of the blog broadcast with the ‘like’ button set to the URL of the blog post rather than the email campaign?

    Ideally for me the scenario would be:
    1. Post blog on WordPress.
    2. Send out automated broadcast to email subscribers around 4 hours after blog has been published to allow some social proof to build up from other traffic.
    3. Subject of email to show title of blog post and body of email to show full blog post with social buttons showing the number of ‘likes’ the article has received so far and one-click option for subscribers to ‘like’ it themselves on Facebook etc.

    Not sure if the number of ‘likes’ can be shown in an email because an i’frame setup would not show up in most email clients.

    Look forward to hearing the response.

    Hi Leonardo, where exactly do you click the buttons? Can you describe the steps exactly? Thanks!

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi Carl,

    Thanks very much for the comment. You’re right – we can’t show the number of likes etc in the email directly, but it does show up in your email archive – the online version of the message, as this is the place where you actually click the buttons.

    As for the blog feature, at this point we have a very simple one that sends an announcement of a new post as soon as you publish it, but as I’m writing this, we’re working on a brand new one that will be much more flexible and customizable, so stay tuned for some good news.

    We’ll certainly discuss your suggestions as well.

    thank you for this information

  • Black Seo Guy

    Cant’ wait to try it out..

  • John Downley

    You guys keep getting better and better. Social buttons & stats – love them both. Now I only wish that my newsletters generate just as many shares as the screenshot you pictured above :-)

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Thanks John! And good luck with the sharing. :)

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Let us know what you think when you do!

  • Leonardo

    The sharing buttons on the message.

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi Leonardo, do you mean a message you have created in the new Email Creator and then sent? For others to share your message you don’t need to do any set up – they work automatically. What you describe is typical of a test message – where sharing doesn’t yet work. I’d appreciate some more details so we can find the reason for your problems. Thanks!

  • Sharky the Streetwear Designer

    I think being able to set the url for the buttons is important. Currently it just likes a page on

  • Karolina_Stefanowicz

    Hi, the buttons automatically link to your newsletter (and its url in your newsletter archive”, so that your subscribers can “like” your newsletters and share them with others who can then read them, too, even if they’re not on your list. That’s the whole point.

  • Sharky the Streetwear Designer

    How do I add social sharing to split test emails?

  • Sharky the Streetwear Designer

    For each of my email I also create a blog post and ideally I would like them to like that and go there. Maybe have this option if the future if there is enough demand.

  • Angela Goode-Taylor

    I really enjoyed reading this piece by Karolina. Thank you so me for the information and I look forward to using the additional features.
