What does that mean at all?
<We interrupt this introduction for an urgent announcement>
In a bit of a big deal for us here at GetResponse, even for us employees, we are really offering, for the first time in two decades, a free plan so that everyone – everyone – can create their very own website and use basic tools, such as e- mail marketing, to get their business online. And everyone out there can get their business online without complications by using our completely code-free, AI-powered website builder, all for the really low price FREE.
Yes, say it again – Free. Forever.
<Horns triumphantly blare>
We introduce the R GetResponse Free-Forever plan. Yes, it’s unusually genuine.
<Back to our question at hand>
So what does it mean to have your business online?
At the heart of it is creating a website so that your business can literally (digitally?) Be online for everyone to find.
Not just any website, but one that looks good, captures attention, tells your story and helps you get in touch with your customers online.
Beyond that, being online usually means having email communication with your customers (current and potential) so you can keep them updated on your offers, offers, discounts, new releases and more. Usually people will give you their email address in a sign up form on your site (you may have done this yourself), knowing that by agreeing to receive emails from you, you will give them some great insights, access and discounts.
That’s the start of it, and sometimes it’s the hardest part to get started.
We know that all too well.
Creating a website and presence online may sound a little daunting if your business is not online yet and you have no coding experience, or knowledge of what it takes to have a website that fits all of your needs. need.
We are here to demystify – and even provide a solution to – all of that.
I admit it, when we heard the message internally, we were a little surprised. We are a bunch of people who sincerely like to help other people and this was a clear and true opportunity to help anyone and everyone.
On the heels of the launch of our new website builder this year, we figured it’s time to merge the tool and approach to really help all businesses get started online, while reducing the real cost of money and time are diminished.
So here we are. You can create a website, much easier than it was before, without knowing a finger with coding and using professionally designed templates, an intuitive drag-and-drop editor and even an AI-powered website creator that will do it heavy lifting for you.
You can use one of our available domains (it’s the www. section that tells people where to go) or even connect your own domain for free. Some other “free” options out there make you pay for this part, which is a bummer because having your own domain is a boost by using your own branding for an even better presence and delivery capability.
A seriously simple and engaging website is waiting for you if you are not online yet.
And you can create that website for free. And keep it online, attract customers and generate sales. For free. Forever. (I’ll have to keep saying it myself.)
You can do it, without the help of an agency, or rely on an expert programmer and codes, or having to pay for a consultant.
Create your own website (no really, I’ve tried it myself and I can not code a candy) without frustration so your business can be online. And do it at the basic level without having to pay at all. And you can actually publish your website and have it live online without having to pay for additions or upgrades, so you can really get your business online, fast and (extremely) affordable.
In the way of making status and adapt, as we have all been in since last year, the Free-Forever plan fits the current reality (because there is nothing “new” about it) for people who seek to fulfill needs and desires online – so companies and customers (most people) are online now. I would say that most companies can not afford to stay completely offline anymore.
<Announcer voice> But wait, there’s more!
You can also include other tools for free, such as email marketing to create newsletters and connect to more information and offers for your audience, as well as sign-up forms to collect these email addresses and landing pages to present offers to them, all so you can nurture your new online audience. Not sure what exactly care is? We’ll get to that in a moment.
What do you get? How long time?
The full details of exactly what you get in the Free-Forever plan, here to your advantage:
… Oh wait, one more thing. Because we have to … when you sign up for the Free-Forever plan, you get access beyond what is available in this plan for 30 days to test it all (if you want). This means that you get access to the premium package of tools, but only for the first 30 days.

The words you keep mentioning those words – what are the “premium features”?
Here’s what you get for the first 30 days in addition to the free forever tools. These are there for you to take on a test drive, and even if you do not need them now, they are there waiting for you if you need them down the road and want to upgrade your plan. As you grow, you may want more marketing tools to engage your audience further, and we still offer paid plans (of course) to give anyone the opportunity to start doing these things as well. You may be familiar with other companies that offer part of their platform for free, with expanded capacity and access at higher levels, companies like Duolingo, Spotify, YouTube and more.
For example, one step up is to create an ad on social media that brings more visitors to your new site. Creating a weekly or regular email series to connect with your audience and offer them your special offers, discounts, holiday sales, all planned and sent automatically with marketing automation. When people sign up for your new email list by filling out some basic information in exchange for your offers.
If it’s not in your wheelhouse right now, cool, keep tough with the Free-Forever plan, and it’s all good.
