Intellispire's GetResponse Jomlink

Jomlink is a "link to Joomla", so this product connects Joomla! to the GetResponse email marketing system

JomLink is an exciting new Joomla! component for integrating your Joomla! powered website with GetResponse - the worlds easiest email marketing software. Now you can create lasting relationships with your customers by easily creating, managing and tracking your email marketing campaigns. Simply install JomLink for GetResponse into your Joomla! web administrator and your website members will be instantly registered in your GetResponse mailing system when they sign up.

Jomlink Version 5.9 works with all current versions of Joomla!, including Joomla! 2.5 and 3.0. We are committed to supporting both Joomla! 2.5 and 3.0 and beyond.

All Intellispire Jomlinks include two extensions: the module, which allows you to create your own email subscription form or "squeeze page", and the plugin which subscribes people to your email list when they create an account on your Joomla! powered website using any standard registration form.

GetResponse Plugin

The GetResponse Plugin portion of the Jomlink is activated when a potential member registers for an account with your Joomla! powered website. When this happens, the plugin adds the subscriber to your Joomla database and also subscribes the user to yourGetResponse mailing list.

Special coding in the plugin provides direct integration with Community Builder and JomSocial: you can collect extended information from these systems during registration, and the fields are then passed to your GetResponse account so you can use it in future emails.

For example, you may want to capture your subscribers website address during registration, then reference the website when sending a future followup email.

While the plugin has extra functionality when used with Community Builder and JomSocial, neither is required to successfully manage your email list.

You can choose whether to have the person's email subscription sent to GetResponse as soon as they sign up with your website, or only after they click on the standard confirmation email link.

GetResponse Module

Used to create a "name capture page", the module creates an "opt-in" form connecting your website to GetResponse. So subscribers are added to your mail list, but not to a Joomla! member's database.

Choose from two modes of operation:

  • Standard mode: when your website visitor clicks on "subscribe", they are redirected to the thank-you page you specify, just like having a form on your site. view demo.
  • Advanced mode: the form sits in a separate "window" (or iframe) on your website. When the visitor subscribes, they are immediately presented with a "thank you message", never leaving the page on your website. view demo.
  • There is a third mode of operation that is specific to Community Builder.  To use the extended fields of Community Builder, you need to also the CBbridge.
The Plugin and the Module, as well as the CBbridge are all included with the GetResponse Jomlink.

GetResponse Jomlink Documentation

Installation

  1. Purchase the plug-in.
  2. After purchasing, you will receive a welcome email from Intellispire, and access to the Intellispire Member's area.
  3. Login to the member's area, click on "My Downloads", and then click on the "download" button next to the product to save the file to your hard drive. Remember where you saved the file.
  4. Once downloaded, login to the Joomla! Administrator for your website.
  5. Once logged in to the Administrator, go to Extensions > Install/Uninstall.
  6. Choose the file that you just saved to your hard drive. Upload and install it.

Plugin Setup

The GetResponse plugin sends the email addresses of newly registered users to your GetResponse list and adds them to your Joomla! user database. In order to activate this functionality, you must set up and configure the plugin.
Follow these easy instructions:

  1. Inside the Administrator, select Extensions > Plugin Manager >GetResponse Notification Pluting
  2. Once on that page, you will need to provide the data for Plugin Parameters -- Campaign and API Key -- which you will acquire from inside your GetResponse account. Please Note: GetResponse is no longer providing API keys to FREE accounts. Make sure you have upgraded to a paid plan in order to obtain your API key.
  3. Leave your Joomla Administrator open and open a new browser window.
  4. Get your API Key: In your browser, login to your GetReponse account.
  5. Go to Account > Edit Settings, and scroll down to number 6 for the API Key. Copy the API key.
  6. Go back to GetResponse Notification Plugin. (Probably the last item on your list, you may need navigate to the next page.)
    • Click on GetResponse Notification Plugin.
    • On the left side, confirm that your plugin is enabled.  Either by checking yes or choosing Enabled from a drop down box, depending on the version of Joomla you are using.
    • Paste the API key you just found into the API key field on the plugin parameters.
    • For the Campaign field just use the campaign name you used when you set it up in GetResponse. NOTE: Do not use @getresponse.com as part of your campaign name! i.e. Your campaign name would be MyCampaign, NOT mycampaign@getresponse.com. You can use multiple campaign names, separated by a comma.
    • Decide at what point in the process your users will be subscribed.  Choose Subscribe When:
      • User Activates Account - waits until the confirmation link is clicked before adding the member to the email service.
      • Immediately Upon Registration - subscribes the user to the service as soon as they register.
  7. Click Save

Testing the Plugin

You will want to test to ensure your registration system works as expected.

  1. Go to the standard Joomla! registration page on your website and create an account.
  2. After confirming your registration login to your GetResponse account to verify that the new user has been added to the correct email list. Check the users db in Joomla to insure the user is also added there.
  3. Your GetResponse Plugin is setup and ready to receive your signups and start building your list.

Community Builder

If you would like to use the plugin with Community Builder in such a way that users are not registered until after confirmation, you must install a bridge plugin into Community Builder. See the Community Builder knowledgebase article for more details.  This additional plugin is included in the Jomlink.

Module Setup

The GetResponse Module displays a GetResponse sign-up box anywhere a module can be displayed on your website, including within content. You can have as many modules as you like, each configured for different lists.

In standard mode, the form is placed within your web page, when someone clicks "submit", the browser takes them to GetResponse, then returns them to whatever page you have specified.

In Advanced mode, all this happens in an onpage window called an "iframe". The advantage here is that your prospect never leaves your site and what they are doing is not interrupted.

In order to create a subscription form on your website, you must activate the GetResponse module.

  1. Inside your Joomla! Administrator, access the Module Manager (Joomla -> Extensions | Module Manager)
  2. Find the appropriate Sign Up form (you may have to page through the list of modules), click it to configure
    • On the left side confirm the plugin is Enabled.
    • Choose the appropriate template position and pages on which to display the module. (See Joomla! Docs)
    • Customize the "Teaser Text" for your company
  3. In the "Redirect" field, you can add the link to the page where your customer will be redirected after signup. This is usually a "Thank You" page.
    • Enter the GetResponse List (campaign) Name you would like to subscribe your users to. This is the part before the "@getresponse.com".
    • Optionally, enter a tracking code in the "Ref" section.
  4. The rest of the fields can be left as default. Use these, for example, if you would like to say "First Name", instead of Name, change it here.
  5. Click on Save or Apply.

Advanced Mode

In order to take advantage of advanced (iframe) mode, simply open up the Advanced Parameters tab, and select "Yes", run in iFrame. Then place the text you would like your users to see on return (HTML allowed). Note, in this case, the redirect parameter is ignored.

You have full control over the displayed form. Simply alter the iframe height and width if necessary (for advanced mode), or the complete form template in Layout Template. We suggest you leave the Layout Template alone unless you have special requirements and know exactly what you are doing.

  1. For Advanced mode, click on Advanced Parameters dropdown on the right side.
  2. Click the radio button "Yes, Run in Iframe".
  3. Next customize the text. Leave all other settings as they were for standard mode. Redirect is ignored in advanced mode.
  4. Double check the left side of the page to make sure your form is enabled and that you have positioned it to your liking.
  5. You have full control over the look of your form by editing the HTML in the "Layout Template". Be careful not to remove the variable code in the HTML.
  6. Click the Save or Apply button

Testing the Module

Now you will want to test all the way through to ensure your signup system works as you expect it to.
  • Go to the page on your website where you placed the form and signup for your offer.
  • Make sure you are re-directed to the page you expect.
  • Check your email to see that you received the message you expect.
  • Check your GetResponse account to make sure the name is added to your list.
  • In advanced mode, expect that after pressing the "subscribe" button, your form will be replaced by the Thank You text. You will not leave that page.
