What Is An Autoresponder
An autoresponder is a program that allows you to automaticaly send emails to people that leave their contacts in your website (this is what we call leads).
The autoresponder is a very important part of your sales funnel because :
- It will immediately send information to your leads, working 24 x 7
- You will able to send a infinite number of follow up messages to your leads
- You can track how many people from your list open your emails and also click on your links, so you know if your campaign is working or not.
The most used autoresponder programs are Aweber and Getresponse. (Click here to get a free account at Getresponse )
When planning an online campaign there are some important aspects that you need to consider (see the post on how to built wealth online) and you usually want to send a few personalized emails to thousands of people (good marketers can easily have more than 10,000 people on autoresponder list) .
An autoresponder will alllow you to do that.
If you are serious about making money on the internet the first thing you need to do is get a autoresponder and start building your list.
Imagine that sometime you can have a list of thousands of people that will love to read your emails (I am not talking about spam, but real people that want to receive your messages!!)
Are there any FREE autoresponder ?
Well , there are , but I really do not recommend you to use one.
Every serious market I know use a payed autoresponder and these is a big reason for that : Free usualy mean less quality . If everybody is paying for a autoresponder , there is a reason for that.
Your email list is your most important asset ( remember , the money is on the list ) , and you don’t want to put your most important asset on a FREE autoresponder
But , you can start with a free account on Getresponse . The account is 100% FREE if you have a small list and as your list grow you can just upgrade for a very reasonable price ( starting from about 8$ month )
