How Does GetResponse Integrate with ClickFunnels (2020 Edition)

If you’re looking for information on how to connect GetResponse to ClickFunnels, or you want to subscribe ClickFunnels contacts to GetResponse, you’re in luck. Both tools integrate well with each other, but it takes a few steps to make it happen. Here’s how to do it, step by step: 

Connect GetResponse to ClickFunnels: API Key

  1. The very first thing you’ll need is an API key. This is used to connect your specific GetResponse account to ClickFunnels. You can find it by logging into GetResponse and choosing Menu > Integrations and API  
  2. From here, click on API and click the button that says Generate API key. Copy the key that’s generated. 

Integrating GetResponse with ClickFunnels

  1. Now that you have the unique key that tells ClickFunnels that this is your GetResponse account, it’s time to login to ClickFunnels, then from the menu, navigate to Integrations 
  2. From here, click the yellow button that says Add New Integration 
  3. Choose GetResponse from the list of available integrations 
  4. Give it whatever name you want in the NIckname field and then paste that API key from the prior steps into the field. This ensures that both GetResponse and ClickFunnels can communicate with each other.  
  5. That’s it! You can now use GetResponse in your funnels as well as the landing pages within your ClickFunnels account. 

Testing GetResponse and ClickFunnels Integration

Want to be absolutely sure your new integration is working? To test it, go to your ClickFunnels dashboard and choose the Funnel that you want to use with GetResponse. 

  1. Using ClickFunnels’ Classic Editor, navigate to Settings and then Integrations – you’ll see a pop up with the integration showing on it that you just added.  
  2. Choose it from the dropdown list (it will have the nickname you gave it from the previous step) and then the action that you want ClickFunnels to do. For example, if you want to add a user from ClickFunnels to your GetResponse mailing list, choose Add to Campaign, and then the list that you want to add the user to. 
  3. If you did it correctly, you’ll now see a checkmark beside the integrations link in the Settings menu from ClickFunnels. 

GetResponse and ClickFunnels Integration Not Working? 

There are some steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue if your GetResponse and ClickFunnels integration isn’t working correctly. 

You Must Create a List in GetResponse

First, make sure you have created a list in GetResponse. If ClickFunnels doesn’t have a list to add prospects to, it won’t work. 

Phone Numbers Not Being Collected from ClickFunnels to GetResponse

If you’re collecting phone numbers in ClickFunnels and passing them onto GetResponse, make sure that the country code is also included, otherwise the phone number information won’t be sent to GetResponse. The exception to this is users from the USA, who are not required to enter a country code. It’s a good idea to make a note of this on your form so that prospects will add in their country code before submitting it. 

If you’re still having trouble, change the Phone field on your ClickFunnels form to a custom input form instead. This will pass that information to GetResponse and you can then verify the number is correct in ClickFunnels’ contact profile.

Do I Need Both ClickFunnels and GetResponse? 

Not really, and in fact, having both is overkill. Of course, ClickFunnels is an easy-to-use funnel builder, but GetResponse also lets you build funnels (and an unlimited number of them) and integrate those with your landing pages and emails all from within one system. 

GetResponse vs ClickFunnels

Overall, it’s better (and cheaper) to simply use GetResponse to manage your email marketing and landing pages. Furthermore, the GetResponse integration with ClickFunnels was created by ClickFunnels, not GetResponse, so if you’re using both, GetResponse can’t offer any support on something they didn’t create. 

You can easily export information from ClickFunnels and import it into GetResponse in just a few easy steps. If you don’t already have a GetResponse account, you can sign up for free and try it out for a month. You’ll also get a discount by pre-paying:
