Before I get to my GetResponse review I have a few things I need to say. Last week I notified my subscribers that I would no longer be using MailChimp as my auto-responder of choice. I also included a link within the email for those who wanted to remain as one of my subscribers. A lot did but most didn’t. Not surprising when you consider that most subscribers never open an email. I suppose thats one of the reasons why they say you need a huge list to make money.
I could have imported all their names into GetResponse but that’s not how I roll. I only want subscribers who want to be subscribed to me and maybe they won’t want to be because I’ve changed auto-responders. That may be stupid of me but I want to give them a choice. Now on to the GetResponse review.
GetResponse Review My New Auto-Responder
I’ve gone for the basic package which is $15 per month for 1000 subscribers. You may well ask why I’ve gone to GetRespone when MailChimp offers 1000 subscribers for free? Honestly, the main reason is because I finally decided to place my Quality Header Package with JVZoo. In order to do that I had to choose one of their auto-responders and I went with GetResponse.
Before I get into this post I am going to anser a few questions that I know people are going to want to ask once they’ve read the post.
Do I use their service? No I do not but that’s only because I’ve only just discovered them.
Would I use their service? Definitely! In fact, the next blog I start, or if one of the hosts I currently use pisses me off, I will definitely host that / those blogs using GreenGeeks.
Am I an affiliate? Definitely! Why wouldn’t I be after discovering a site that offers people the chance to blog green thereby minimising their carbon imprint.
Are There Any Coupons? Yes, there is. I was fortunate enough to be able to secure a coupon for my readers which I have included at the end of the post.
OK! Now, on with the post.

I’m sure that most of you didn’t know that you could actually get green hosting for your blog or website? I know I was surprised when I happened across GreenGeeks who are said to be the world’s #1 green web hosting site. I also know there are a lot of people out there arguing about whether or not global warming actually exists but global warming aside the one thing that people can’t deny is that we’re polluting this beautiful world of ours.
I truly believe that talking about pollution is far more tangible than the idea of global warming because it’s something that people can see. Anyone who lives in a major city can testify about the smog ridden impurities in the atmosphere. Anyone visiting from the country areas will testify how they notice the difference in the quality of the air. The trouble is unless we do something about it now, it will spread like a cancer until no matter where we go we’ll be breathing in air that has been infected with man’s pollutants.
We as individuals should be doing whatever we can to minimise that and having a green blog or website is just one of the ways we can go green. Apart from going green GreenGeeks has a lot of features to offer including;
Unlimited Web Space
Unlimited Bandwidth (Data Transfer)
Host Unlimited Domains on 1 Account
Unlimited E-mail Accounts
Unlimited MySQL Databases
FREE Domain Name for Life. This is great for those starting their first blog as it eliminates the yearly cost of renewing their domain.
FREE Site Migration
FREE Marketing Credits
FREE Web Site Builder + Templates
So, if you’re dissatisfied with your hosting, are looking for a host or simply want to do your bit by going green then perhaps you should consider joining the #1 Green Web Hosting site, GreenGeeks.
What’s that I hear, how can a web host be considered green? Well, firstly you need to know is that data centres, as this article shows, are becoming huge polluters, so much so that it’s said they’re going to overtake the airline industry! The GreenGeeks overcome this, partly by using the latest in technology but mostly by purchasing three times what they use from the grid in wind energy credits.
So, if you want to do your bit for the environment perhaps you’d consider using a green web host and using you can save thirty dollars by using the blogsire30Green Geeks coupon.
Today is the 1st of February and it is also the month of the most important day of the year. Its very important for men and most important to women. Yep, you guessed it, I’m talking about Valentine’s day! It’s very important that men don’t forget it and really important to the women that the men remember how important it is to the women. They may argue the point but I’m pretty sure that most men out there have had to deal will women after forgetting to show their appreciation for them by showing their love on this most auspicious day. As important as it is to the men and women of this world it’s even more important to the marketers and retailers because they’re the ones that capitalize from this annual event. That being the case there is no reason why us bloggers get in on the action. The way to do that is to use our blogs to market to all those blokes out there who, if they know whats good for them, will give their better half something nice on Valentines day. OK, all you guys out there, there is a very good reason too for not forgetting to buy your better half a Valentines Gift. Forget about what I said about Valentines Day on my Load Of Bullshit blog. Forgetting your better half on Valentine’s day can have dire consequences, anything from not getting laid on the night to getting the silent treatment for some time to come. As to those of
you who have yet to score a girlfriend, this is probably one of the best opportunities you will get to show the woman of your dreams how much you think of her. Who knows, play your cards right and you may land your first girlfriend. The problem that most guys, and a lot of women, have is deciding what to give to their Valentine. Well, that’s cool because I have some very good ideas for you and thankfully for you some of those ideas come straight from one of the most reliable online stores ever. Yep, you guessed it Amazon.
The Best Ever Valentines Gifts
Shop Amazon – Valentine’s Day Top Gift Ideas: Great for the astute buyer, this selection includes gifts for men and women, many discounted up to 70%! It has everything from jewellery and watches to power tools and digital cameras, not to forgetthe ever popular box of chocolates. Shop Amazon Jewelry – Gifts for Every Valentine, Selections up to 70% Off: You can never go wrong with jewellery when it comes to buying a gift for that special woman in your life. There’s a lot to choose from this store, many coming with a great discount. I particularly like this 18″ Sterling Silver Marcasite and Garnet Colored Glass Heart Pendant and at $36.99 it’s a steal. Others may prefer the tear shaped topaz drop earrings or even one of the many rings. Shop Amazon – Flowers for the One You Love: Yep, one must never discount the power of a lovely bunch of flowers and if you want something that will last a hell of a lot longer then you should consider the ever popular indoor plants. If you’re not sure which one is for you I would definitely stick with the flowers. Shop Amazon Movies – Valentine’s Day – Romance Movies: There are definitely some woman that are a pushover for a romantic movie and it’s up to you to decide if yours is one of them. Of course, if you’re planning on a romantic night in then there is nothing wrong with cuddling in front of a soppy romantic movie. Shop Amazon Mobile Electronics – Valentine’s Deals for $100 or Less: Let’s face it not every woman is into flowers, jewellery or perfume and I can safely say that most men definitely aren’t interested in that crap and so I present to you a line of gifts from te electronics department, all for $100 or less. You will find products such as GPS navigators, MP3 players and car radios.
