help with shell script

I am trying to make a script that will notify me if it can't logon to a website.
So far I found if I run
GET "" |grep -o Invalid
and it can log in it will not display anything but if it fails it will display "Invalid"

My problem is building a script that checks to see if it gets "Invalid" and then e-mails me or somthing if it gets "Invalid".

You could use:
output=`GET "" |grep -o Invalid`

if [ "$output" == "Invalid" ];then
echo Could connect
echo Unable to connect | mail
