A Guide To Using an Automatic Responder

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 your box!

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 make!

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 to go.

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 can you!
