What is Covered in this GetResponse Tutorial for Newbies

The GetResponse tutorial covers how to set up your (first) email-marketing campaign (aka list) and everything you will need, up to being able to automate your first newsletter from your blog postings.

Please do not fret if any of the subsequent tutorial parts seem long.  It only seems that way because I have added detailed steps for you.  I have included many screenshots to make things as simple and as clear as possible.

This tutorial is not the only way to do things in GetResponse.  However it is one of the easiest way.  Especially for a newbie coming to terms with the concepts, the steps, the interface, the terminology.
