Getresponse is frustrating closing accounts?

8 replies
Hi all,

Do you notice that recently Getresponse delivery rate is going way down and they are closing many accounts without good reasons in order to save their delivery rate?

If your account has been closed, is there anyway to debate with them to re-enable your account? I've tried and failed. Please share experience if you succeed. I'm moving to Aweber again even though it's more expensive but at least it doesnt close accounts without warnings and without letting users to backup their data.

    It's only fair that they do. And if you're account gets hit...it probably means you got way more than the usual spam complaints or your emails just goes straight to trash.

    That's why it's always wise to ask your subscribers to double opt in or white list your emails.

    • I think (as a marketer), you do have to take some responsibility for somehow keeping your spam complaints low, although I admit it can be difficult.

      I remember reading a study from Hubspot showing that emailing more regularly (and even once a day) reduced complaints.

      This makes sense because that way, it's less likely people will forget who you are and how they got onto your list, and then go ahead and click the spam button.

      Ryan Deiss (and Digital Marketer) did studies on the best frequency for emailing your list, and they found it to be "5 times per week". I follow this process!

        It's very easy indeed, if you don't send spammy emails and if you just fulfil your subscriber expectations. Given that you can set them, yourself, before/while/just after people subscribe, it's pretty easy to fulfil them.

        There may be some validity in that for people who have built poor-quality, low-responsivity lists, via squeeze pages, using mostly search-engine traffic. Possibly. Let's not lose sight of the fact that Ryan Deiss is - by his own open admission - a guy with an overall open-rate in single figures, as a percentage. Ultimately, we all have to take responsibility for "by whom we choose to be advised": http://www.warriorforum.com/email-ma...ml#post8661178
