It’s unbelievable….that many people do not know, that an
automatic responder in your first few months of promoting your
service, product or opportunity, is the most important tool in
So, you have just joined your new business or taken on a new
product that you would like to make you a few dollars or a lot
of dollars on the net, first thing you must do is get yourself
an automatic responder.
You can get them free from lots of places on the net if cash is
tight, but remember if it’s free then there will be a down side,
like their ads on your mail to your subscribers so think
carefully on what you decide,choosing your automatic responder
will probably be the single most important decision you will
Right, you have an automatic responder. let’s get started.
You need to pre-load your automatic responder with informative
articles related to your business this will give you credibility
with your readership, write some of your own it’s not that
difficult once you get started.
Try to pre-load your automatic responder with 52
messages/articles, that’s one per week for a year. If this
sounds a bit daunting, don’t worry there are lots of places that
you can get stuff to fill your autoresponder with for free try
ezinearticles.com, so in a few days your ezine should be ready
Don’t bother too much if you only have a few messages at this
point you can add them as you go.
Now that’s out of the way add your [[sig]] file at the bottom of
every article on your automatic responder , this should contain
your name and URL of the business you are promoting and a short
description of the business,you do this once the automatic
responder puts it on every e-mail automatically.
Now you have set this up your automatic responder will
deliver your messages to your subscribers every
week or month, depending how you set it up.
How to build your subscriber list.
Visit Google and do a search for ezine directories, the last
time I did this there was about 88,000 listings.
This is where the work starts and where most fail, you can buy
software to help with submitting your ezine but it costs. If
you want your ezine to be a success then its time to get busy
and I mean busy, you should submit to at least 200!
Another way to promote your ezine is through Announcement Lists
Done correctly Announcement Lists could get you up to 800 new
subscribers per week to your automatic responder!
If you visit Google and search for ezine announcement lists and
sign up to a few yourself, you will then see how it works.
Start announcing your ezine to as many annoucement lists as you
can, spend a whole day to get off to a good start!
Your aim is to have at least 3000 subscribers to your ezine, at
this point with your automatic responder you can virtually make
money on demand.
Sign up to a few ezines yourself to get an idea of how people
run their ezines, this will give you an idea how to run yours.
OK, so you don’t have the time for the above, then you can buy
leads to fill your automatic responder with a pay-per-subscriber
service, try lead factory.com.
The whole idea of having a list is to build a relationship with
your subscribers, who then will be more likely to buy from you.
Make no mistake about it, if you are going to sell anything on
line in your first year it will almost certainly be by email and
not from your website.
I hope the above is enough to get you started with your list and
automatic responder, there are a lot of people that make their
living on line with only their list and automatic responder , so
