Marketing Tools

Most of the marketing tools mentioned below are included in the hosting accounts.

Eresponder Pro

GVO autoresponderThis is the flagship marketing tool and official name of the auto-responder service. This service is specifically designed for bulk email and included in the hosting packages. Eresponder is fairly simple service; you can create, send and track your email messages without too much effort. There is a small learning curve, but I have to admit that it is much easier to understand than the major email marketing companies. It’s much simpler and to the point, less features, but it has all the basics you need to get started.

Key Features:

Let’s have a look at some of the most important features that will come in handy.

  • Send emails in plain text or HTML.
  • Easy to use HTML editor.
  • Create unlimited campaign.
  • Personalized messages with custom fields.
  • Subscriber filtering and sending.
  • Daily activity report and click tracking and reporting.
  • Unsubscribe function.
  • Variety of forms to choose from.
  • Unlimited Follow-Ups.

Prospecting System
GVO reviewsThis is basically a lead capture system for those who are unfamiliar with creating capture pages that converts.

Key Features:

  • Connects to the Autoresponder.
  • Variety of templates to choose from.
  • Ad copy written for you.
  • Custom video lead capture pages.
  • Simple to set up, no advance skill necessary.

GVO Conference

Affiliate Program

To become an affiliate and earn commissions, you must have one of the Reseller hosting accounts to qualify. With the affiliate program you can earn “customer for life commissions” and bonuses for those you refer to the hosting program.

5 Ways to Get Paid with the program...

  • The quick start bonus
  • Monthly Residual on referrals
  • Monthly Residual 5 levels deep
  • Matching check bonus
  • Profit sharing bonus

To sum it up, GVO is basically an MLM (multi-level marketing) program that is attached to a good hosting service.


Reasonably priced, considering the added tools that can easily cost a fortune by themselves if purchased separately.

Good service for those on a tight budget.

Improvement for the future. Joel is a well known marketer and famous for striving to “always improve”. Flaws that exist now, will most likely be worked on to better the platform.

What about Cons?

My only concern is about the auto responder. Many people are used to the larger email management companies like Aweber and GetResponse that they might not trust an email from a company that they never heard about. Not to mention it’s no secret that this service is used to blast out emails. The majority of popular email companies like Gmail’s advance spam filter will catch most of these bulk promotional emails and sends them straight to the spam bin.

Nevertheless, like mentioned above, Joel is constantly working to better his programs to provide an outstanding service. GVO came a long way and many flaws have been corrected over the years to better the program. Apart from my small downside with the autoresponder service, I see no other major flaws.

    1. You are too kind, but unfortunately I am already married to my work lol

    2. I bet you have a lot of guys asking you that, lol

    3. Hey Christene, I am a newbie, and I have tried before to find a way to make money online, now my husband doesn't believe you can make money, how can I prove him wrong? I need a blueprint step by step that I could follow, now if I made money the first time, I followed a program, that would really make things easier. Let me know.
      And thank you

  2. Do blogs, videos, or websites rank best in search engines?

    1. Blogs usually ranks the best, but there are various factors to consider with all three and not one is an exclusion. Video's for instance, can rank better than blogs if the SEO is done right. In addition, it depends on your choice of host for your blog. If it is an unreliable hosting company, the blog will not do well and ranking will be impossible no matter how much SEO you do.

      Many factors that determine a good ranking position like Social sharing, activity on the page/video, correct SEO, blog consistency and so forth.

      Your choice of niche will also determine what platform should be used. Niches that requires actual demonstrations, tutorials, or visual content, will do better with video in the search because people would rather watch a video than to read about it. Example, "How to change the oil filter on a car" The majority would click the video and thus if such a video is available, the search engines will rank it higher.

      Information based niches, do better with blogs because each week you can add more information and obviously the engines loves a blog that is alive and provides great reading content on a regular basis.

      I would say a blog and video should walk hand in hand. Both benefit each other. Video's drive traffic to blogs and V versa. You will end up with one of them ranking well.

  3. This is wonderful! You wouldn't have to wonder the unfamiliar plants and flowers you see in the streets. Thank you for this one! This is very much useful for those who are studying.

  4. I do agree the cost for GVO autoresponder is very cheap, however, there is a problem that is important to disclose. There are many people who are marketing a number of things on the internet. For those who are building a client list through email it is important not to lose any potential future clients. What I have found recently is that I have been losing a large number of subscribers. I have found that if someone who was a member of a list that was contained anywhere within GVO unsubscribed from that list, well, it would ban their email address from subscribing in another list that was also located in GVO. Just so I make it clear if you were subscribed to a list that Marketer "A" owned and decided you no longer wanted to be a member you would request to be unsubscribed. That's pretty easy and it's also in compliance with the Spam laws. Now let's say you wanted to join a list that Marketer "B" owned and this list was also in GVO. It's not going to happen or at least not without you contacting GVO Support to help. I have had a number of people contact me to ask why they were having this problem. Just think of how many people couldn't join my list and didn't try to contact me? Just thought you should know.


As a result of the spam filter, comments can take a while to be published. Please be patient.
