Autoresponder Marketing For Affiliates

What is an autoresponder?

An autoresponder is a specific online type of software that allows affiliate marketers to properly market and advertise products or services through the use of e-mail automation.

Autoresponder marketing for affiliates has become one of the most effective and efficient solutions for affiliate marketers to boost online sales of both products and services.

Autoresponder marketing is effective because it allows affiliates to build up a list of opted in e-mails through an opt-in box that can essentially be utilized on a continually growing basis.

You’ve probably seen them before, without realizing what they actually are, or the main purposes autoresponders are used for. An autoresponding opt-in box is a simple way of gathering visitors e-mails and names, thus giving permission to the marketer or company to e-mail them usually with daily tips and advice, products and services, freebies, or anything else, through use of autoresponder e-mail marketing for affiliates.

How To Use Your Autoresponder

Once you begin attaining e-mails through an increase in traffic and views, you’ll then want to setup your autoresponder, and write out an e-mail to be sent out on a calendar basis. The way an autoresponder works is as soon as an individual has opted-in, they’ll be forwarded your e-mail on say an every other day per basis, twice a week basis, once a week, etc. You are then able to both setup and have sent out a sequence of messages or e-mails on your own desired interval basis.

Moreover, it is highly effective as you get to not only schedule precisely the exact days in advanced you want your messages to be sent out, but also are able to send out messages that are already saved in advanced, giving you the ability to for example give a “Welcome E-mail,” within a few hours of your visitor opting in.

What You Can Send To Your Opt-Ins?

Some popular ideas that tend to work are freebies, a 4-part series newsletter, affiliate links, advice, tips, recommendations, products, and/or services.

The options remain endless. You will find the customization options as moving forward with your auto-responder to become better tailored to your visitors and audience, as you get a hang of the technique.

Tip: At the bottom of each e-mail, make sure to always have disclosed an Opt-out option, thus allowing the receiver on the other end permission to be taken off your list, as regulated by Can-Spam Regulations.

When people click on the unsubscribe option, they will be automatically taken off of your list by your autoresponder, hence giving you no reason to worry about who or when to take a person off manually.

What Are The Best Autoresponder Softwares?

Despite the fact, most autoresponder softwares are very similar to one another, some of the best and most popular softwares to date include:

1) Aweber

      Hey Manie,

      You should!

      It’s one of the best ways to stay in touch with visitors on a regular basis, and a great way to offer free advice and tools, while keeping them engaged. I’ve also found it particularily useful in helping tailor the way in which I talk and connect with others around the internet. I particularly like aweber myself. It offers more tools, customizations, along with a $1 monthly trial.

      I appreciate the comment! Let me know if you have any other questions in regards to e-mail marketing.

    Peter, very informative. I didn’t know about the single and double opt-in options. Thanks for the great article.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      Hi Alice,

      Thanks for stopping by and reading my latest post. Most people overlook the ability to implement the choice for a double opt-in. Although it’s not exactly necessary, it turns out to be a matter of preference and can also depend on the overall marketing strategy at play.

      Anyway I’m glad you learned something new to take with you.

      If you choose the double opt-in, just remember, that it will help give visitors a more memorable visit and has them keeping you in mind, more often than they would have otherwise. :)

    Nice web very interesting, do you have some tips about getting ranked fast in google?

    1. Peter G. Post author

      Sure Mihai! That’s a great and often received question.

      My number one answer for getting ranked fast in Google, would be to deliver content to your viewers and readers. Being able to do so on a consistent, and persistent basis, will show Google your serious about building up a website filled with up-to-date information for your readers, rather than building a single one-time website to try and gain profit from (as that rarely tends to work).

      If you’d like to know more about being able to rank fast in Google, you should check out my review on Wealthy Affiliate. It’s truly taught me a great and invaluable deal of information to utilize for a lifetime! It’s an excellent community to receive all the answers to your questions in a highly prioritized manner. Hope that helps :)
