I recently had someone ask me what software I use for my email marketing. The answer is Get Response.
I have been using Get Response for over a year and have had absolutely no problem with it what-so-ever. Not one single thing has made me consider changing to another provider.
I started off running my email campaigns using the autoresponder service that comes with my DreamHost webhosting account. That was OK to experiment with, but was a bit clunky and had a very DIY feel to it.
The great thing was that when I started up with Get Response, I could just import all the email addresses and names and send a broadcast email to my old list telling everyone to shift across.
Also, autoresponders that come with webhosting are pretty basic and just don’t cut it when it comes to doing some more advanced techniques with email marketing – such as sending out scheduled emails and other cool things.
One of the coolest things you can do with Get Response is set up scheduled emails like e-courses. This is how it works:
- Visitor signs up for you email newsletter.
- Visitor gets confirmation request email. Clicks it to confirm that they want YOU to tell them more about stuff they can spend their money on.
- You have a whole bunch of emails full of valuable content set up in Get Response that are triggered to be sent out to new subscribers every few days.
- Visitors come back to your site even though they may have forgotten all about it.
- They buy products you are affiliated with, or click AdSense .. or do something else that is profitable for you.
- This pays you monthly Get Response fee several times over each day
Do You Need an Autoresponder?
Well if you have a website (or a few niche websites) and are making money from them, then YES you definitely need an autoresponder like Get Response. If you are passing up the opportunity to collect email addresses from people who want to hear more about the information you have on your website, then you are passing up the opportunity to increase your bottom line.
We are not talking about email spamming here. Let me say this again:
If you are passing up the opportunity to collect email addresses from people who want to hear more about the information you have on your website, then you are passing up the opportunity to increase your bottom line.
People who end up on your list will have volunteered their email address, and then confirmed that they want to hear more from you. They would have to click on a confirmation link in their inbox before you can send them anything.
People who want to hear from you, about a niche product, generally have money to spend on those products.
Is An Autoresponder Expensive
No. If you have website content that is allready making you money, then if you can’t decide whether or not you want to spend just $15 a month on your Get Response Autoresponder, then you are fooling yourself.
Honestly, if you have money making content, you can sign up with Get Response right now and spin that content into an e-mail course, set up an opt in form and start getting repeat visitors (who WANT MORE OF YOUR CONTENT) to come back and make you more money.
Also, whenever there is a hot new product in your niche, you will be the first to let you subscibers know about it, and you will pick up the commissions.
I believe they have a 100% money back guarantee, and I think they may even have a free trial.
And while I’m on the topic, I can highly recommend Inside The List as a top notch blueprint for making a living with Autoresponders and Email Marketing.
