How to integrate with Get Response?

Hey,

I want to integrate my forum with Get Response email marketing so that when I user signs up to my forum they are automatically put onto my mailing list.

Is this possible? How would I do it?

Thanks,
Ben

  • I am not familiar with GetResponse but it should very well be possible. You need to write a plugin that hooks into the registration process and integrates GetResponse's API.

    Or you can hire somebody to do it for you. ;)
    However, please keep in mind that, most probably, you will have to give your API keys for the development. GetResponse and it doesn't provide a free API key, and not many developers are willing to pay a monthly fee just to have access to it, especially if they don't use the web application themselves.

  • Hmmm might be willing to hire someone if it's not too much.

    There are lots of wordpress plugins that hook into various email marketing software. It seems integrating with email marketing software is not the hard part, so a plugin wouldn't have to be designed specifically for GetResponse but could be useful for all of them. But saying that I am a code novice so not sure if it's something in my capabilities.

    Would be a great plugin for the community if anyone wanted to run with the idea.

    I'm not offering to do it

    but

    if you give the definition of "not too much" that might help someone else.

    but usually "might" and "if it's not too much" used in the same sentence usually means "please do it for free" from my experience.

    :)

    if I could only click lol on my own post, because I'm laughing now.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • Sorry if that was out of line. Yes I guess it was a vague attempt of hoping someone would attempt the plugin, but not in any sinister kind of way.

    I genuinely have no idea how much it costs (in time or money) to develop a plugin, so forgive the ignorance. But much would you charge for this?

    @thecashbag Don't worry, you're not the only one who went out of line. Many requests are written using the same "strategy", I hope that my answer will serve as a reference for the future. :)

    Based on the information you have given so far, I reckon it could take about two to three days of work (a lot depends on the features that you would require). Depending on the hourly rate of the Developer, that could vary from a few to many hundred dollars (with corresponding quality).

    I promoted it, so it is in the best of...
