AWeber offers a mix of basic features (such as file import) with advanced features (creating your own email templates) i

Overall, GetResponse offers a great user experience and great third-party integration, managing to provide both the features and ease-of-use. We also noted the great automation mechanisms for list management. While the editor can be a little fiddly when performing certain tasks, and the templates look a little dated, they’re responsive and still good enough to create something useful. And, of course, all templates are responsive, which means you’re good to go on mobile, too.

With its long list of powerful features like landing pages and now even webinars, GetResponse is doing quite a few things right, it’s definitely versatile enough to perform almost everything you’d need for your personal or business needs.
