Using an autoresponder is pretty much a must – do in modern internet marketing. You simply must build a list, and you must build it using automated techniques.
So how long should your autoresponder sequence be?
Well, it varies dramatically depending on your purpose, but for ours and this project, you are simply going to start with a simple series of about 3-4 messages in your auto responder sequence. This will make it easy for you to learn the basics.
These emails are not designed to sell, but rather to allow your customer to get to know you. Remember, you are simply building a relationship with like-minded folks online, building an opportunity to begin to recommend your products or affiliate products on down the road. You want them to learn to like you, to trust you, to want to buy from you, and feel comfortable doing so.
Your first email should simply thank the subscriber for joining your list, indicating that you strive to maintain a quality mailing and will do your best to only send helpful information. If you have offered a free ebook or other product to first-time subscribers, you can include a link to that ebook in this email. This is certainly a get-to-know-you email.
Your second, third and fourth emails should be spaced about 4-6 days apart, and should simply be useful information for your subscribers. You can send links to additional free ebooks, to useful info on your web site, or you can simply write content with good information, and send it to your subscribers.
