Hi, and welcome back.

In this video, we are going to learn how you can add a contact to your GetResponse account.

So throughout the videos you are going to be using these emails as samples where necessary.

So right now, we’re going to start by adding contacts and I’m going to show you how you can add one contact at a time.

So if I come here under Contacts.

I’ll just go to Add Contacts.

So this is for that scenario where you want to add one contact at a time.

So if you manually want to add a contact, you’ll just come in to Contacts and then click on Add Contact and then you’ll be able to add the contacts that you want to add here.

So in this case, you’ll need to choose a campaign and as I said, a campaign is a way for grouping related contacts.

So if maybe you have different levels of users in your website, you can use campaigns to group them.

So if you’re to create other campaigns, you’d go back to the dashboard and then here, you remember when those that form with the name of the current campaign, you can click on it and you’ll be able to create a campaign.

You are going to create another campaign later.

 

So it’s important to note that the campaigns in GetResponse is not the same as the campaign that you know about in MailChimp, that is if you’ve used MailChimp.

So you can add the name and then you add the address, and then if you want to add another field, maybe [xx], you can add that right here.

Date, you can add that.

If you want to add maybe a city, you can add that.

So there are a whole bunch of others that you can add.

So if you want to add a website link, you can just add that.

So I don’t need to add any of this.

So I’ll just delete that.

Let’s come back to this list that we have and let’s add a name.

Let’s call this as the name, then paste it there and then let me go back for the email, and then just click Add Contact.

And that will add the contact and you can add another contact.

Control+C , Control+V.

The name and then, have permission.

Make sure you click this.

Add Contact.

And that will have been added.

So we can go to our contacts and click here on Search Contact.

When you click on Search Contact, it will bring you to this.

So here you can search for contacts.

If maybe you want to search, you can search for the contacts or you can come and view all the contacts.

So these are all the contact that we added.

So if you have other campaigns, you can choose the contacts that are in that campaign here, so you can also do other things.

You can copy to a campaign, move to a campaign.

You can send a message to just that particular contact.

Then you can add custom fields.

You can remove them from account.

So if you want to remove from account, you can just come and choose the ones that you want to remove, and then once you select, you can select all your contacts.

You can choose all, like if I just come here and say Choose All and then down here, there’s this place for actions where you can do something.

For instance, if you want to remove them from your account completely, you can click this to remove.

You can remove from the campaign.

You can copy them to a different campaign.

If you have other campaigns, you could move to another campaigns.

Moving them will move them completely.

Copying will keep their versions that you have here and we’ll also copy them to the new campaign or you can send a message to the selected contact.

So in this case, I don’t want to remove them.

I’ll just leave them, and I want to go back to the dashboard.

So in the next video, we’re going to see how you can import contacts.

We’re going to see different ways of how you can import contacts.

And before we do that, we are going to create a new campaign which will house those contacts that we’ll import.

So I will see you in the next video, when we continue from here.

And just to recap, in this video what we’ve done is we’ve seen how you can add contact manually.

If you just have a few contacts to add, you can just add them manually.

You just paste in the name.

Once you click on Add Contacts, you’ll just paste in the name and then you‘ll paste in the email.

And if you have to add any other custom fields, you’ll just choose to add those fields.

And also you must make sure that you’re adding them to the right campaign.

But even if you add them to the wrong campaign, when you go to contacts, you will be able to move them, copy them, delete them or remove them as you may need to.

So I will see you in the next video when we continue from here by importing contacts.
