  • Navigate to Components > Convert Forms > Campaigns
  • Create a new Campaign by clicking New
  • Type a name for your Campaign. This name can not be seen by anyone else but you.
  • For the Sync Leads > Choose Service selectbox choose GetResponse. If you can not find the GetResponse option then you do not have the GetResponse Addon installed and activated. In that case, please go back to the top of the article and see how to install the mandatory addon.
  • Save the Campaign for the special GetResponse fields to show up.
  • GetResponse needs:
    • An API Key: Where to find it
    • A Campaign Token: Once you click the "Lists" button as shown in the screenshot above, a dropdown of your available Campaign Tokens will appear and you can select the Campaign you are interested in populating.
  • Click Save & Close

3. Email & Name Fields


For a Convert Form to successfully store an email address to your GetResponse account it needs to have an email field. This field is already set up at the time of creating the form and you don't have to change its input value as it is already configured for you.

If you want to store the contact's fullname you should create a field named name. See the screenshot below to understand where to set it up.

4. GetResponse Custom Fields

GetResponse offers custom fields to collect more types of data for each of your contacts. We can also use these custom fields in a Convert Form for a more efficient data gathering and by extension, a more efficient campaign. Let's see how.

First you need to navigate to your GetResponse Dashboard, choose "Contacts" in the menu and go to "Custom Fields" to create your custom field. As an example in the screenshot below we have created an Address custom field and an Age custom field.

With the custom fields you have configured on your GetResponse Account, you can now proceed and use the same ones in your Convert Form. For example, we used our Address and Age custom fields in our Convert Form in the screenshow below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Autoresponders and Autoresponder Day?

Autoresponders are messages set to go out automatically after a contact subscribes to your list.

The Autoresponder Day is a number that starts from 0 indicating day 0 (the day a contact subscribes). You can use any day after the user subscribers to your list such as day 3, 7, 14, etc... So, autoresponders are useful if you want to send an automatic message to contacts who join your list. When you set up an autoresponder cycle, messages will go out on a specific day of a contact’s subscription period, according to how you set up the cycle.
