Hi, and welcome back.
So before I move on to forms, let’s see what’s remaining under this list.
So we’ve looked at adding contacts, search contacts, import contacts.
And we’ve also touched on this briefly.
But let me just click on it so that you can see what’s here.
When we did an import of contacts into GetResponse, you saw that you could just select from a drop down and there were available fields.
So for example, we had Name, First Name, Last Name, there was also URL and a bunch of others.
So if you want to create anything that you want to be available under that list, you can add it here.
For example, I did say something about Title.
So I can add Title, and then the type.
What is it? It can be any of this.
So, let’s say Title is just a text, a single line, a format, it can be checkbox.
And come here we want it to be a text, a single line.
And then custom filled value.
A value, just call it Title.
So, if you want to add anything into that list, you can add it here.
You just click Save.
So if you have any other fields you want to add, you can add it here.
So that needs to be a small letter.
So let me make this caps.
Then you can save the custom field and if you save it, it will be visible for you the next time you’re importing any contacts into your GetResponse account.
So these are all there.
Custom fields that are available and you see if you want to create a new one, it’ll be possible.
Just come here and click Create New and where is the one that you’ve created.
This is the one that you’ve created.
So, if you don’t want it, you can just delete it, or edit it.
In this case, I’ll just delete it, because I don’t need it.
So, I’ll just get rid of it.
Ok? That’s custom fields.
Let’s see what we have here.
We also have this.
So, if you click on custom fields, it’ll bring you to this page, so that you can choose whether they want to edit them, delete them, add for the ones that you can add.
Some of these are created by GetResponse and you will not be able to edit them.
So let’s go to suppression list and we see what this is.
You can add some contacts to your suppression list.
So a suppression list is a list that, probably they are subscribers that unsubscribe themselves using a form or they unsubscribe themselves from a link in your email and their status is changed to unsubscribed on your account.
Or maybe they mark one of your emails as spam, or if you send an emails to the subscriber and it results in a hard bounce, a hard bounce.
A hard bounce is a prominent bounce whereby the email will not go.
So in that case, you can add some list to your suppression list, some contacts, so that they don’t receive the newsletters that you are sending.
So you can import from a file.
If you have a list of them, you can import them from a file.
Or maybe you can add them manually.
Or if there’s a whole bunch of domains that you don’t want to receive your newsletter, you can add that.
And, all these emails will not receive and any emails with this domain will not receive your newsletter.
An example is, in MailChimp, maybe some people unsubscribed, and you did not remove them from the official list.
And then you import that list into GETRESPONSE.
And you also have another list of people who are unsubscribed.
So what you want to do is, you’d bring that list, import it and then once you import that list, and you save it, it will automatically remove those people from your list so that they don’t have to receive your email, again.
And then you can also look at your list hygiene and see how your list is.
This will give you the option to remove any email addresses that you don’t want to receive your newsletters.
So this will unsubscribe them.
You can even blacklist them so that they never ever have to subscribe to your list again.
So that’s your list hygiene.
You can maintain it if there are people who, maybe you know who subscribed, but they’re just spammers.
You can bring the email addresses here, or you can add a domain.
Maybe there’s a domain that you know is a culprit of this.
You’ll just add all the emails here, all the domains here.
So if you want to add a full domain, you can just add like that.
And all emails originating from this domain will be unsubscribed.
Or if you want to blacklist them, you can blacklist them.
So this list hygiene gives you the option to add to your suppression list, as well as to blacklist.
So you can do all that in one place, right here.
And if you want to do it to multiple campaigns, you’ll just come here and select them and add to blacklist.
Or if you’re unsubscribing them, unsubscribe them.
So that’s it for this part on contacts.
In the next part, we’re going to start looking at forms.
How you can create forms, add them to your website, so that you can use them to collect contacts.
You can collect new subscribers on your website.
So I will see you in that new section.
If you have any questions, make sure you let me know.
Until next time.
