I’m always trying to find new ways to cost effectively generate new subscribers for my email lists. I use GetResponse for managing my email marketing campaigns. is an email lead generation service by the same company as GetResponse.

You don’t have to be a member of GetResponse to buy email leads from GetSubscribers. But they made it highly convenient for automatically adding new email leads right into your GetResponse email list. Plus, I highly recommend joining GetResponse anyways for all of your email marketing needs, they’re a great email marketing company.

GetSubscribers Review – My Email Marketing Case Study

On December 26, 2013, I’ve purchased the 200 email lead pack which costed $89.95 or $0.45 per email subscriber. How it works is that you pay for an email lead package ranging from 200 leads to 2000 leads.


After payment, you will create 1 text ad which will be shown to subscribers from various email lists on the GetResponse network. So for example anyone subscribing or unsubscribing to an email list may see text ads displayed at the bottom of the page. These text ads look like any other ads similar to that of google Adwords. Users would check a box next to the text ad they want to subscribe to, enter their email and now they are automatically subscribed to the new list.

By default these text ads will not show unless the email list owner uses a custom page for confirmation and unsubscribe page. So if you’re a member of GetResponse and decide to use their hosted confirmation or unsubscribe page, then your email subscribers will see these ads at the bottom of the page.

Anyways, so after creating the text ad on GetSubscribers, you will wait for approval, which takes about 24-48 hours. Once approved, your text ad will go live and you’ll start receiving new email subscribers.

Today as of writing this post, February 14, 2014, that’s about 50 days so far since my GetSubscribers campaign was approved. Let’s take a look inside of my GetSubscriber campaign dashboard:


So after 50 days, I’ve gotten the 200 new email leads which is about 4 new email subscribers per day added to my email list. That’s Pretty slow.

My text ad was shown 4013 times with an optin rate of .05% . At this point, I really don’t care much about these numbers since I’m paying a flat rate per optin anyways. If only there was a good way to split test my text ads.

I’ve been promoting various make money online products from clickbank to my new list. With my autoresponder messages, I’ve welcomed the new subscribers with an introduction email and a free make money online report. Then every couple of days for a month, they would receive more tips and more make money offers.

So let’s talk about money, what’s the quality of my new GetSubscribers Leads?

So… how much money have I made with the 200 subscribers? I’ve made about $118.41 from them thus far. 

So the service is slow (4 leads per day) for my 1 campaign. But if I can break even when building my email list, in a way that’s like building a free email list. In the long run, I’ll be able to keep promoting to my email list and that should make me some nice change. 

How GetSubscribers service can be improved?

The lead generations have to be faster somehow. 4 leads per day is slow. The only way around this right now, I believe, is to buy multiple campaigns at a time. So if you have 10 campaigns running at once, then potentially you can get 40 leads per day this way. 

It needs to have some kind of targeting, like showing my ads to someone in a weight loss newsletter. Right now, my ad is shown to all people across all niches.

I would like to be able to geo target my subscribers. 

I would also like to be able to split test my text ads. This would be good for everyone since this will increase my optin rate and can fill leads faster than before. Everybody wins!
