Get response vs ConvertKit: Which email marketing service to choose?

ConvertKit

The email marketing service ConvertKit is targeted mostly towards bloggers and content creators. Unlike most other platforms which focus on becoming a platform for all, ConvertKit focuses on bloggers and content creators. That is how ConvertKit has become a well-crafted tool for the marketing needs of bloggers and content creators. Important features such as visual automation, opt-in forms & landing pages all are a part of ConvertKit’s tools. Building an email list is very important vis a vis having dedicated landing page building capabilities. The reporting capabilities help to get insight into the performance of your list and forms. It allows Creating an Email sequence with a visual automation builder and the same can be done with forms. The seamless integration of the automation with both emails and forms sans the need to jump between options.

But Convertkit’s simplicity comes at the cost of some limitations like filtering your subscribers is not easy as with some other platforms,  lack of spam scoring, and there’s no visual builder for emails.

But, if you’re a beginner to email marketing and need a simple solution without sacrificing powerful email automation functionality, give ConvertKit a try and you won’t regret it. 

Getting started with ConvertKit is easy! You can sign up for a free account, but we recommend signing up for a monthly or yearly plan to take advantage of our discounts and features.

In order to add a new mailing list, click on Lists in the left sidebar and then Create New List under Lists & Subscribers at the top of the screen. You’ll want to name this mailing list something descriptive so it’s easy for you to tell which one it is later on if you have

GetResponse

GetResponse has been a very well known service in the email marketing platforms. It is the veteran in this field. Started in 1998, and now they have more than two decades of experience. They have added a slew of new features of late to keep up their game in the field of email marketing and provide a comprehensive package. 

Email marketing is the core of their product and apart from that, they are trying to provide excellent solutions for visual marketing automation, landing pages, webinar creation and other features to become an all in one platform.

And since you can do this within a single tool, analytics & reporting are exceptionally convenient.

Email marketing has been around for decades and it’s one of the simplest and most effective ways to promote a business. With the rise of social media, marketers may have all but forgotten about email marketing- but this would be a mistake. Email remains one of the most popular and powerful digital marketing channels, and experts say that many marketers are not taking full advantage of its potential.

An email from a brand is an excellent way to reach out directly to those who might be interested in what you have to offer, as well as those who may have forgotten about you after an initial

How to use tools for anonymous torrent downloads real quick and easy [in 2019]

How to use tools for torrent download

  1. A VPN app to get access to Torrent sites. In my country, many torrent sites are blocked. The Torrent technology (P2P file sharing) is not only for illegal downloads but many legal software and videos are available for download via torrents as well. I prefer Nord VPN for anonymity. It is available for almost all platforms with some good servers. P2P is allowed. BTW, we will use a torrent leecher web service.
  2. A download manager, I prefer Internet Download Manager for Windows and Advanced Download Manager (buy Pro for ad free experience) for Android.
  3. An account in Torrent Leecher site like Zbigz , the premium service is good but has some cost. If the file size is not too big then seedr.cc also provides good speed and 2GB storage to start with for free.

Anonymous torrent download
The 1-2-3 of the process:
  1. Connect to VPN, for anonymous connection and access to Torrent site. The detailed connection process will vary from one software to another.
  2. Copy the magnet link of the torrent file from the site. Add the link to seedr or zbigz. There are a number of torrent leecher services available with different free and paid plans. I have listed only those which I personally have used and found to be working well. We can also paste to torrent file lik as well instead of magnet links. 3.The leecher service will start caching the file requested in its own servers. It is something like the leecher service download the torrent file in a similar manner as it is done in our own PC via Torrent Clients. We leave the leecher site till the caching is complete. Sometimes it takes longer time for the process to complete. Once the caching process is complete, the file can be downloaded as usual. Use the download manager of your choice to download it at maximum speed.

Indic Language support across platforms

This computer age requires us to write using a PC/Mobile device every now and then. Most of us can type in the default English language input methods supported across platforms. Now a days, the operating system environments are  expanding horizons where we find many flavors of OS across devices. The most common environments being the Microsoft’s Windows, Apple’s Mac OS and various GNU/Linux based distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Linux Mint, Archlinux and so on.On the mobile devices front, Apple’s IOS and Google’s Android are now the leading OS. Symbian, Blackberry OS and Windows Mobile are the other notable operating systems that power our mobile phones and Tablets. When we talk about input methods, many of us don’t even think beyond the default option of English input. But we can very easily enable support for our own native languages. There are many software solutions which allow us to type in many Indic languages, e.g., Hindi, Malayalam, Tamil, Gujarati, Assamese, Bengali and many more. I will briefly introduce some of the methods for input in Indian languages in different platforms (I don’t have a Mac, so I will not talk about it Winking smile). 

Microsoft Windows is undoubtedly the most widespread OS and there are several free and paid solutions available. Notable among them are:

Lipikaar (Visit  http://www.lipikaar.com for more details and download) provides a software for windows and a free Firefox browser add-on to enable Indian Language input (See this link ). Lipikaar interface is very simple and the phonetic input does not require one to have special training.

Avro Keyboard:  This is a free software and works quite well. Download this free tool from : http://www.omicronlab.com/avro-keyboard.html 

Baraha: Baraha comes in Free and Paid Versions(with premium features). The free version is sufficient for basic Indian Language input. Downloads and details can be obtained from the Baraha Website : http://www.baraha.com

GNU/Linux environment also have many solutions. The Ibus Input Method is the one I prefer to use when it comes to input in my own Assamese Language in openSUSE 12.1 OS. The m17n library provides language support for many Indian languages and this library can be used with Ibus to get Indian language support under GNU/Linux.

In Ubuntu, Ibus, Ibus-gtk, m17n-library, and the m17n contributed packages can be installed via the software center. I installed these packages in my openSUSE 12.1 system using the Yast Software Management Tool. After successful installation of these packages, a reboot is required to use the Ibus input method.

I also use my own language (Assamese, অসমীয়া) in my Android phone. Android offers a lot of apps through the Google Play store (formerly known as the Android Market). Though the number of apps is fewer as compared to Apple’s App store,  there are lot of apps; paid as well as free. The Multiling Keyboard (search Play Store to get download options) is a very good free app which makes it very easy to input in many languages including Indian Languages such as Hindi, Bengali and Assamese. The functionality of the app can be extended using various freely available plugins for the app.

I hope this brief introduction about options for input in our own languages for various platforms will at least make the readers aware of the software solutions available. Please give them a try!

Write in Indian Languages Free with Firefox and Lipikaar (লিপিকাৰ)

Lipikaar provides a free Firefox extension which enables writing in many Indian languages including Assamese and Sanskrit. The extension is free and installs similar to other Firefox extensions.To get this extension, in Firefox menu bar click on “Tools–>Get add on” and then search for Lipikaar. Install the extension and complete the process by restarting Firefox. The preferred writing language can be selected from the Preferences Section in Lipikaar Extension window.

Lipikaar can be used to update facebook status, post to twitter or writing your WordPress blog in Indian Languages in a very easy to use manner. It uses phonetic input which is very easy to make use of. There are other free software available to input in Indian Languages but most of them are Microsoft Windows platform dependent. Even Lipikaar has a full software for Microsoft Windows. This Firefox extension, being a browser based technology, is platform independent and presently available for Firefox under both Windows and Linux.

Lipikaar : A user friendly software to type in Indian languages including Assamese.

Be the GOD:The Windows 7 GodMode

 There is a lot talk about the hidden GodMode in Window7 and the later versions of Microsoft windows. God Mode is just a trick which enables all the control panel options centralized in a folder. It is very easy to get all the options for settings at one place. For that you only need to create a New Folder anywhere and rename the folder to:

GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}

You will have God Mode activated. Enjoy. It will not hamper the normal windows working. You can even safely delete the GodMode folder in case you don’t need it any more. Have all the Control panel options in one place.

 ~Bye for today. Keep visiting.
