GetResponse vs Mailchimp
Both GetResponse and MailChimp offer a wide range of features and tools for creating and managing email campaigns, as well as powerful tracking and analytics.
Have you looked at newsletter services and found MailChimp and GetResponse pop up often?
Well, that’s because they’re both pretty good!
They rank pretty high on the list just below ActiveCampaign.
We’ll explore the differences between each service across different categories to help you decide which one is right for you.
Mailchimp vs GetResponse: what do they do?
GetResponse and Mailchimp are email marketing tools that help you:
- Create (or import) mailing lists and get email addresses
- Design an HTML e-newsletter (an email containing graphics, photos, and branding elements) that you can send to your subscribers
- Automate emails to subscribers via “autoresponders”
- Monitor your email marketing stats, including open rates, click rates, and forwards.
What is GetResponse?
GetResponse is mostly used by “serious people” (i.e. people who are serious about making money online).
People who are serious about making money from their mailing lists prefer using GetResponse.
Big marketers like Neil Patel and Peep Laza use it to grow their mailing lists and use it to drive sales.
GetResponse offers his 30-day free trial.
You don’t even have to enter your credit card details. It’s free for 30 days, but if you like it, you’ll have to pay $15/month after that.
What is Mailchimp?
MailChimp is often used by ‘beginners’
Email marketing beginners mostly use MailChimp.
The reason is that you can create your first list of 2000 subscribers for her for free.
You don’t have to enter credit card information or pay a dime to use the service to create a mailing list.
Did you know that currently over 9 million people use his MailChimp and send over 600 million emails daily?
This stat alone puts his MailChimp among email marketing users. You can get a better idea of how popular it is.
From the comparison above, MailChimp outperforms GetResponse.
But really it’s not! Here’s why:
You cannot send autoresponder emails to your subscribers.
This is a serious question if you want to build engagement with your mailing list: how on earth do you build trust with your subscribers without sending out a ton of autoresponders?
That’s fine, but MailChimp has another problem.
Affiliate links cannot be sent through email newsletters. It’s really sad!
Especially for bloggers growing mailing lists to promote affiliate products and generate sales. MailChimp will deactivate your free account without your consent.
MailChimp’s free plan cannot be used to send anything related to affiliate marketing or making money online.
For this reason, you should either get a PRO account or consider an even better option, GetResponse.
Again, you changed your mindset from MailChimp to GetResponse.
Is MailChimp really that bad? No!
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Ease of Use
If a platform has the best features you could imagine but is a pain in the ass to use, surely you will stop using their service
With that in mind let’s compare which is easier to use out of these two
GetResponse’s dashboard is very easy to read, and the menus are neatly hidden in the header to keep your workspace clutter-free.
You can also customize the blocks and widgets displayed on your dashboard.
This feels good.
GetResponse’s customizable dashboard shows that they put a lot of thought into the user experience.
Mailchimp’s dashboard is a little cluttered by comparison.
However, the menu scrolls down the left side of the screen, making it very easy to read.
It may take some time to understand what the menu icons mean, but hovering over the icons will give you a helpful explanation of what each icon represents
Mailchimp’s dashboard feels like scattered notes, but it’s still easy to understand.
There is one more thing that bothers me about the Mailchimp dashboard.
As mentioned earlier, the Customer Journeys section of the Automation tab has Mailchimp’s autoresponders and multi-step workflow builder.
That’s my real bogeyman.
The concept of the customer journey is a general marketing term and not specific to email marketing.
This is how customers communicate with your brand through various channels. Email marketing is just one part of it.
However, autoresponders are a specific email marketing tool.
Grouping them and email automation tools under “customer journey” is needlessly complicated.
Honestly, I think this highlights a bigger problem with Mailchimp. Much of what it offers is more style than substance.
Unless you’re offering something significantly different than typical email automation tools, you don’t need to rebrand your automation on your own terms, which Mailchimp does not.
Another example of Mailchimp’s overall style over substance influences its editor.
Both Mailchimp and GetResponse have drag-and-drop editors for emails and landing pages.
Both editors are superficially very similar, but there are some important differences.
Mailchimp’s email editor lets you set the overall style of your emails so you don’t have to constantly change font sizes, colors, etc. to match your branding design.
GetResponse only allows you to style the headers and footers of your emails, so Mailchimp comes out on top here.
Mailchimp’s editor is certainly simple, but do you really need advanced features?
However, GetResponse’s editor is much smoother than Mailchimp’s. We’ll talk more about this in our GetResponse review.
The editor also indicates the type of block it’s hovering over. B. Text, Buttons, or Images – Not applicable to Mailchimp
I vote for GetResponse because I’m a fan of smooth hover effects on websites.
GetResponse also offers a built-in image and GIF library and its editor, as well as 2 GB of image storage. This saves a lot of time when designing multiple emails at the same time
My biggest gripe with Mailchimp is that the automation editor is point-and-click.
Why is this editor different?
There’s no real reason for this and it’s a confusing user experience.
There is also no indication that it is a point and click. If anything, the neat box in the sidebar looks like drag and drop. I wish there was at least a tutorial.
In comparison, GetResponse’s editors are all drag and drop, making them much easier to use.
Ease of Use: Winner – GetResponse
Overall, GetResponse seems to focus more on user experience than Mailchimp.
The dashboard was easier to read and being able to customize the home page was a nice touch.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Autoresponders
Autoresponders are newsletters sent to your subscribers at predetermined intervals.
For example, you can configure them to:
- As soon as someone subscribes to your mailing list, they will receive a welcome message from your company.
- A week later, they receive a discount code for some of your products
- Three weeks later, they get an incentive to follow you on Twitter and Facebook…
The idea is that a lot of your email marketing is automated – so once you set everything up correctly, subscribers will automatically receive important messages from your business.
You don’t have to worry about manually sending e-newsletters (although you can still do this if needed).
The above example of an autoresponder cycle is often referred to as a “drip” campaign, where email newsletters are triggered at intervals
However, autoresponders are increasingly being used by businesses in more sophisticated ways, with notifications triggered by opens, clicks, purchases, website visits, and abandoned orders. past, etc.
And when set up correctly, they are huge time savers and have the potential to generate significant revenue.
So what does the autoresponder feature in GetResponse and Mailchimp look like?
Let’s find out together.
Both products let you choose from a similar set of auto-response triggers.
Listings, opens, clicks, purchases, URLs visited, and user data changes can all be used to initiate an auto-response cycle.
For example, both tools let you trigger automatic responses in the following ways:
- E-Newsletter Actions – For example, when someone opens or clicks a link in an email you send, you can automatically add it to a specific autoresponder cycle.
- Purchase – When someone purchases a product from your website, this information can be used to trigger an email send with GetResponse or Mailchimp.
- Page Visits − When a subscriber visits a specific page on her website, you can send an email a few seconds later.
- Data Modification – i. H. When someone modifies the data in your list. Date and Time – For example, you can automatically send a message x minutes or days after login or on your birthday.
In short, both products are very strong when it comes to autoresponder features. The range of triggers at your disposal is very extensive.
GetResponse: Automation workflow
For a while, GetResponse has let you manage your email automation via a “flowchart” style trip builder.
This is a very sophisticated feature and you can get an idea of it from the screenshot below.
Also, it’s not difficult to set up.
Basically, you set a set of rules that GetResponse follows.
These are based on user actions.
For example, when a user clicks on a certain email link, they are directed to a pass.
If not, go for another.
Mailchimp: Automation workflow
Not to be outdone, Mailchimp recently added a similar “journey builder” tool.
You can also use it to create similar subscriber journeys.
It’s pretty much on par with GetResponse’s automation builder in terms of functionality, but I think GetResponse’s functionality is a bit better in terms of functionality.
This is because, unlike Mailchimp, you can use it to create “loops”.
This means that if a subscriber reaches a certain point in a journey without taking any action, they can be sent back to the beginning of the journey or sent back elsewhere. that.
You can also trigger “push notifications” using GetResponse’s journey builder.
This is where the browser displays messages from you after the user performs certain actions.
However, Mailchimp’s Journey Builder interface is “cleaner” and a bit easier to use than GetResponse’s
Autoresponders: Winner – GetResponse
Overall, both tools offer very powerful autoresponder capabilities. Mailchimp wins on ease of use, but GetResponse wins on features.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Integrations
GetResponse only offers 74 integrations, but these appear to be more carefully curated than those offered by Mailchimp.
Shopify and Etsy are also available.
If either GetResponse or Mailchimp doesn’t offer native integrations, both can be used with Zapier, a third-party app that opens up thousands of automation options.
You can also connect GetResponse to custom apps that you create.
This isn’t for every business, but it’s a useful addition to your workflow when using custom software.
Mailchimp offers nearly 300 integrations.
However, they are not easy to find as I can only find 27 of them on my dashboard.
You’ll need to click Find new integrations at the top of the page and scroll down the page that opens to find the full list.
However, Mailchimp offers integrations with just about any software you want to work with.
They have Magneto, Prestashop, Stripe for e-commerce, OpenTable and Calendly for reservations, and Eventbrite for event management.
Oddly enough, the only thing missing is PayPal integration.
Integrations: Winner – Tie
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Deliverability
A pretty important one!
Does your newsletter actually make it into your readers’ inboxes?
This is not easy to test and may change frequently, but continuous testing consists of thousands of emails sent. can help give you an idea of the average reach of your tools.
Mailchimp and GetResponse both do a pretty good job
Now, before starting this section, I should point out that I don’t accept the usual reachability tests used by other websites.
Not a shade if you think it helps, but our research found that these percentages don’t say much.
One of my colleague girlfriends explained to me why the deliverability results were unreliable and what I could do realistically to actually improve my deliverability.
But what that basically means is that this section doesn’t provide percentages, of what Mailchimp and GetResponse actually do to improve the chances of your emails reaching your contacts’ inboxes.
Let’s see if there are any
So let’s take a look at our first port of call, our anti-spam policy.
Unless you purchase a dedicated IP address for email marketing (more on that below), you’ll be sharing your IP with thousands of other EMS customers.
If only one of these customers used her IP address as a spammer and her IP address was reported, the entire IP address could be blacklisted by the email server.
This means that even perfectly legitimate emails can end up in your spam folder, along with emails from foreign princes and lonely rich widows.
So no matter what EMS you use, you should have a solid anti-spam policy in place to avoid the risk of being blacklisted.
Both platforms are strong anti-spam and remind users of their obligations under CAN-SPAM, GDPR, or other applicable privacy laws.
The main difference between them is that Mailchimp prohibits affiliate marketing and GetResponse does not.
Please note that while this may not be a deal breaker, affiliate marketing may increase the risk of your email being marked as spam.
Another important factor for deliverability is DKIM authentication.
This will insert a code into your email telling her provider that you own the visblues.com domain, for example, so they can be confident that the communication from you is legitimate.
GetResponse provides a detailed tutorial on adding DKIM authentication.
Both Mailchimp and GetResponse offer DKIM authentication tutorials that help you connect your domain name to your EMS account and are very easy to follow.
Mailchimp also has an easy-to-follow tutorial, which is a nice touch
As mentioned earlier, using a dedicated IP address also improves deliverability.
This is not a perfect solution as there are so many factors that affect deliverability, but it greatly reduces the risk of your email’s IP address being blacklisted for spam
Mailchimp doesn’t give you a dedicated IP address, even on its very expensive premium plan. Once you get to that point, it sucks because most other providers offer dedicated IPs.
Only available on the most expensive Max plan, GetResponse at least gives you a dedicated IP address if you’re willing to pay.
If a dedicated IP address is a deal breaker for you, but you’re not ready to commit to an enterprise-level plan yet, take a look at Benchmark.
Benchmark offers dedicated IP addresses as a paid add-on to every step.
Deliverability: Winner – Tie
In the battle for deliverability, GetResponse and Mailchimp are evenly matched.
Sure, Mailchimp doesn’t offer dedicated IP addresses, but it also doesn’t allow affiliate marketing on its servers as GetResponse does.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Template Design and Flexibility
GetResponse has a wide range of templates.
They are all responsive and really well designed.
The email editor has been updated, so it’s super easy to edit the templates to make your newsletter look just the way you want it.
MailChimp’s email templates don’t have many choices.
The Free and Essentials plans only come with basic templates, which makes them look very outdated. GetResponse is available to all users.
This is a plus and added some great themes.
Template Design and Flexibility: Winner – GetResponse
GetResponse takes another W so the current score is 5-2
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Landing Page Creator
The Landing Page Builder allows you to use a variety of templates and a drag-and-drop editor to create landing pages or “squeeze” pages that increase signup rates for your listings.
These are distraction-free signup pages designed to improve signup rates.
A/B testing is commonly used to test different versions of a landing page against each other to identify the best performers and use them to maximize signups.
GetResponse landing page creator
Get full landing page functionality with GetResponse.
This feature includes hundreds of responsive templates (197 total), automated A/B split testing, countdown timers, and free stock photos.
From a usability standpoint, Landing Page Designer may be better.
It’s a bit clunky and hard to use, but in the end, it’s a powerful tool that can do more with your landing pages than Mailchimp.
Mailchimp landing page creator
Mailchimp allows landing pages on all plans (including the free plan).
However, this functionality is currently somewhat limited. A/B testing is not included and only a few templates are available
Landing page creation: Winner – GetResponse
Landing pages and GDPR
Both Mailchimp and Getresponse let you add Facebook pixels and Google Analytics cookies to your landing pages.
While this feature is very useful for measuring the success of your advertising campaigns, none of our products allow landing page visitors to opt out of the use of these cookies.
This is not ideal from a GDPR perspective. Both companies need to address this urgently so that users do not break the law.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: List Management
Being able to easily move subscribers to another list can be very important for certain businesses.
This applies equally to list segmentation by specific traits.
Mailchimp list management
MailChimp is good for basic segmentation methods (such as email link clicks) that can combine multiple positive or negative conditions.
However, one problem is that I can’t manage subscribers across multiple lists as each is isolated (e.g. the other he adds subscribers to two related lists).
GetResponse list management
GetResponse, on the other hand, allows much more complex list management.
Lists are not separated, so you can copy contacts to another campaign or move them entirely.
Segments are more customizable as you can add any/all conditions to users and groups.
Below is an example of segmentation with GetResponse using our own account.
List Management: Winner – GetResponse
For these reasons, GetResponse wins this round easily. For your reference, the score is now 7-2
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Analytics
Both services offer almost everything you need.
Here’s how to view subscriber details:
- Who opened or clicked;
- The email client is used (although GetResponse is less obvious than MailChimp).
- E-commerce tracking data
- Geotracking (where the subscriber is based, or at least where the email was opened)
MailChimp also has better social media reporting than GetResponse if you need it.
Finally, reporting and analytics are pretty much on par for both email marketing services.
Analytics: Winner – Mailchimp
If forced to choose one over the other, MailChimp might come out on top, but it’s unlikely you’ll make a decision that ultimately relies on its features.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Sign-up form
Both GetResponse and Mailchimp let you design a subscription form and get a code snippet that you can add to embed the form on your website.
GetResponse sign-up forms
Using GetResponse gives you a wider range of design options.
You can use more fonts in your forms and choose from a huge number of ready-made form templates (123 in total).
GetResponse is also great because it gives you fine-grained control over your form.
You can customize what triggers the popup form (timing, scroll event, page exit, inactivity).
Wait time before displaying them.
When it’s okay to show the form again (that is, X days after the first visit, etc.). and the device that displays them.
GetResponse pop-up forms not only collect email addresses but can also be used to display promotional codes and encourage website visitors to follow your business on social media.
Mailchimp sign-up forms
Mailchimp gives you a nice level of control over some of these aspects, but most importantly, you can’t specify what kind of device the form will be displayed on.
This is important because some website owners don’t want to use popup forms on mobile devices.
This can negatively affect your site’s performance in search results.
Sign-up Forms: Winner – GetResponse
Overall, GetResponse is the winner when it comes to popup forms and data collection.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Customer Support
In the past, GetResponse was the clear winner in this area, offering phone, live chat, and email support, while Mailchimp only offered email or live chat support.
However, in recent years, GetResponse has ended phone support for all plans except the enterprise-level “Max2” offering.
So both Mailchimp and GetResponse now offer similar levels of support.
Mailchimp offers support via email, live chat, or Twitter.
As with GetResponse, phone support is only available on the most expensive service ($299 “premium” plan).
If phone support is absolutely your thing, I recommend checking out AWeber.
This is one of the few email marketing products that are affordable and includes phone support.
Regarding supported languages, Mailchimp offers Help Center articles in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese (Brazil), and Spanish.
Email and live chat support is provided in English, French, and Spanish.
Email support provided by GetResponse is available in English, Polish, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, and Portuguese. Live chat is in English only.
I have more personal experience with GetResponse support than Mailchimp.
All I can say in that regard is that the live chat support is excellent and of much higher quality than the email support.
Customer Support: Winner – Tie
Unfortunately out of these two none come on top of each other and so it’s a tie
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Pricing
Prices vary considerably between the bottom two providers.
Both offer lifetime free plans, but with very different capacities.
Mailchimp is limited to 500 subscribers and 2,500 emails per month, while GetResponse also offers 500 subscribers.
However, there is no upper limit for emails.
No tools with advanced features (e.g. multi-level marketing automation).
These free plans are a great way to try out the service before committing, but other free email marketing services offer more generous allowances.
As for paid plans, GetResponse charges $19/month for just 1,000 subscribers.
Still, to take advantage of Pro features like webinars and additional marketing automation features, you’ll need to purchase a higher plan.
It starts off, but as the number of subscribers grows, MailChimp’s pricing surpasses GetResponse’s
|GETRESPONSE (EMAIL MARKETING PLAN)||MAILCHIMP (ESSENTIALS PLAN)|
|500 subscribers||Free with unlimited emails||Free with 2,500 emails|
Pricing: Winner – GetResponse
GetResponse won this round by a narrow margin.
The free plan offers unlimited emails, and the paid plans are slightly cheaper.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Features Overview
MailChimp is great for beginners looking to build an email list from day one. This is because the newsletter is easy to create, the design is intuitive, and more importantly, there is no charge until you reach her first 2000 subscribers.
With that in mind, MailChimp goes far beyond GetResponse.
Now let’s take a look at MailChimp’s features.
- Subscriber Profile (This feature allows you to see who clicked to open your email)
- Automation and Personalization (Send emails to people in her zones at different times at the right time. Personalize your emails how you want them. Want to include your name? No problem!)
- Best Time Feature (MailChimp gives you the best time to send your newsletter, so you can get more open rates and clicks)
- Advanced analytics (does it help you monitor sales, analytics, etc.?)
- Offers A/B testing
- Mobile optimized newsletter
- Share your newsletter on social media to increase your exposure
- And most importantly, there are tons of great-looking newsletter templates (you can use any of them without coding).
Now let’s talk about another email marketing software GetResponse.
Note: I’ve personally been using GetResponse for over a year and have never been disappointed with their service or features.
The primary use of GetResponse for MailChimp’s free service is access to email autoresponders. If you don’t know what it is, let me explain.
We already talked about how email autoresponders let you set up a sequence of email newsletters in advance and automatically deliver them to your email subscribers (new or existing) at the scheduled time.
Look how good it is.
You don’t have to send a newsletter every time someone signs up for your mailing list.
Your autoresponder will take care of that.
Just go to the GetResponse dashboard and create an auto-response. You can select a predefined day to send the email to your subscribers.
Now let’s talk about the GetResponse function.
- Responsive email for mobile devices
- Awesome mobile app
- Better analysis
- Good auto answer
- Comprehensive segmentation options
- Social sharing tools
- Split test
- RSS/blog to email functionality
- Many templates to choose from
- Time machine function

- Suggests the best time to send emails to subscribers based on their niche.
- GetResponse pricing is contact based. If you send to 1000 contacts, you have to pay $15. However, if you plan to send multiple emails to the same contact list in a month, contract-based pricing with unlimited emails to all email addresses on your contact list is very useful.
- The user interface takes a while for beginners to get used to.
- No free plan (unlike MailChimp).
Mailchimp Pros and Cons
MailChimp has managed to build a huge customer base, ranging from small startups to corporate brands. It’s an affordable choice regardless of how many contact lists you have.
- You can schedule emails to be delivered in specific time zones.
- You can import your own email template or customize an existing template.
- Free up to 2000. However, they place their logo under your campaign.
- It offers various integration options.
- Track the performance of your email campaigns. You can also check the performance metrics of her other MailChimp users to see if you’re maxing out your efforts.
- Template editor is very easy to use.
- Google Analytics can be integrated for each campaign.
- Unlike GetResponse, it does not provide professional templates.
- Accounts will be suspended if there are too many unsubscribes or spam complaints.
- WordPress integration and Paypal are less reliable. Therefore, it is difficult to have a membership site.
- Autoresponders are sent to people who sign up through the web form.
- Designing and configuring campaigns takes a lot of time as the interface is not user friendly.
However, it offers a free service, which makes it perfect for novice bloggers and small business owners just getting started with email marketing campaigns.
GetResponse vs Mailchimp: Winner
Overall, it’s hard to not see GetResponse winning the shootout between GetResponse and Mailchimp.
It’s cheaper to use than its competitors and has far more marketing features.
Plus, unlike Mailchimp, there are no sending limits to worry about. Also, you don’t have to pay to host your unsubscribed contacts.
This more impressive feature set and lower price make GetResponse much more affordable than the two products reviewed here.
In particular, GetResponse’s webinars, chats, and push notifications are very useful tools to have in your digital marketing toolbox.
I think these make the platform more of an “all-in-one” product than his Mailchimp.
Additionally, its flexible approach to data segmentation makes GetResponse a much more flexible tool for managing your mailing list (or lists) and using the data in creative or sophisticated ways.
Also, the data collection options (especially when using pop-up forms) are more extensive.
For me, the main selling point of using Mailchimp over GetResponse is the ability to integrate with far more third-party tools.
With over 300 apps to choose from in our integrated library, you have a lot more options for how you do your email marketing.
Additionally, while you can technically use Mailchimp to build your online store and access increasingly sophisticated eCommerce features, GetResponse’s website builder tools also allow you to sell online. is not at all trivial (at least out of the box).
Leave a list of the main pros and cons of each product.
However, as with all the products we review, we encourage you to try them thoroughly before purchasing.
