2. Making Money, Introduction to Autoresponders FREE - A New Idea for Making Money Online Every Day HERE FREE - Turn Your Blog Int o A Non-St op List Building Machine FREE - Top 10 List Building Mist akes How t o Explode Your Email List FREE Using Offline Sources

If you've reached t he point of exhaust ion t rying t o keep up

wit h answering t he mount ain of emails t hat t hreat ens t o

bury you alive every single day, you're ready t o learn

about aut oresponders.

The bad news is t hat people expect prompt replies t o t heir

email inquiries. However, unless you can figure out how t o

work cont inual t went y-four hour shift s, or hire enough

people t o const ant ly monit or incoming emails (while t hey're

eat ing up your revenue), you have a problem. The good news

is an aut oresponder is an inexpensive - or even free -

met hod of quickly responding t o emails. What t hese programs

do is aut omat ically respond t o incoming emails as soon as

t hey are received.

7


Emails are essent ial t o your business for many different

reasons. Most import ant ly, t hese invisible email voices

give you t heir feedback about your websit e - for free!

However, if you spend all your working hours answering

t hese emails, how are you supposed t o run your business?

The answer is simple: use aut oresponders. Aut oresponders

are programs t hat aut omat ically respond t o your emails

wit hout you so much as having t o click on your mouse.

There are a number of good reasons why you need an

aut oresponder besides just answering your email. For

example, aut oresponders can be used if you need a way t o

send informat ion about your services or product s, price

list s, or if t here are repeat ed quest ions asked across

large numbers of emails. Maybe you want t o offer your sit e

visit ors a special bonus of some kind, such as advice or

relevant art icles. All of t his can be handled by an

aut oresponder. Addit ionally, you can advert ise your

8


business and t hen build st able relat ionships wit h your

cust omers by using aut oresponders.

Aut oresponder programs vary from soft ware t hat runs wit h

your email program t o a specialized script t hat runs on

your web host ing company's server. This kind of script may

use a web page form or simply operat e wit h your email

account . This kind of script is programmed t o send out a

st andardized message whenever an email is received. The

message is sent t o a part icular script or email address.

Some aut oresponders can do more t han simply send out

st andardized messages. They can send out an unlimit ed

number of follow-up messages sent at predet ermined int erval

of t ime. For example, you can set your aut oresponder t o

send out a new message every day for as long a period as

you desire.

There are numerous companies who offer aut oresponders free

of charge. Your websit e host ing company oft en provides

9


aut oresponders as a free service. If t his is not t he case

wit h your web host ing company, t here are numerous companies

who offer t his service for a small fee, or free of charge,

providing you at t ach an advert isement for t heir company t o

your emails.

To personalize your aut oresponder messages, you can at t ach

a signat ure. Signat ures in t his case are much like business

cards. You can include your name, company, all your cont act

numbers and addresses, and a brief message.

It 's a good idea t o at t ach a signat ure t o every email t hat

is sent out . This works as a repeat ed reminder of your

business ident it y every t ime a cust omer sees it . The more

t hey look at your signat ure, t he more likely your company

will spring t o mind when your part icular service or product

is needed.

You can creat e a st andardized signat ure t hat every employee

in your business uses, or you can go wild, and let every

10


st aff member creat e t heir own personal signat ure. Of

course, like everyt hing in life, t here are some rules and

guidelines t o creat ing a personal signat ure.

Keep t he lengt h of your signat ure bet ween four t o six lines

of t ext , wit h no more t han 70 charact ers in a single line.

Make sure t hat your email program does not cut off your

t ext ! The cont ent should include your name, your company

name, your email address, fax number, and any ot her cont act

det ails, such as 800 numbers. Last ly, always include a

short personal message about your company. It should be a

subt le sell of your services or your product s, and possibly

your company's reliabilit y and longevit y.

Anot her specialized use of aut oresponders is t o creat e

courses t hat you can t hen offer your sit e visit ors for

free. You must choose a t opic in which you are an expert

and t hat precisely t arget s your pot ent ial cust omers.

Once you have carefully chosen your subject , divide it int o

11


a number of different sub-t opics. Then offer your sit e

visit or a free 10 or 15 day course, each day offering a

different sub-t opic. The first t opic should always be a

welcome message t o your sit e visit or and an explanat ion

about what is t o follow. Your explanat ion should be

ent icing, get t ing t he point across t hat you are offering

free, qualit y informat ion t hat your t arget audience will

find of great value.

Wit h every lesson, include t he number of t he lesson, t he

t opic t it le, informat ion about your company and it s

services or product s. At t he end, include a few blurbs

about t he next lesson t o ent ice t he subscriber t o cont inue

on.

Make sure each t opic is packed wit h essent ial and valuable

informat ion, and leaves t he visit or lust ing t o know more.

Ot herwise, you may lose t hem in t he very beginning.

12


Of course, you have t o writ e up your course before you can

offer it . Once you have done t his, and gone over t he

mat erial carefully, employing a professional writ er or

edit or if necessary, you must t ransfer your t ext t o your

aut oresponder.

There are a number of free aut oresponders you can use. Try

ht t p:/www.get response.com, or ht t p://www.fast fact s.net . Or

go ont o Google and you will find a long list of free

aut oresponder companies. Then sign-up for your chosen

aut oresponder. Once you do, you will receive inst ruct ions

as t o how t o set it up and t ransfer your t ext .

Email is an excellent market ing t ool; it is inexpensive and

it is fast . Use it t o advert ise your business by choosing

your email address carefully. Your websit e should cont ain

different email addresses for different cont act request s.

For example, use info@yourdomain.com for informat ion

request s, or sales@yourdomain.com for quest ions about

13


sales. It 's a good idea t o set up one for t he owner, such

as president @yourdomain.com. This present s your company in

a personal, approachable light and insures t hat direct

cont act is provided.

Aut oresponders are an effect ive and powerful market ing

t ool, allowing you t o make cont act wit h t housands of

pot ent ial cust omers. This is an invaluable asset

considering how many pot ent ial cust omers you usually have

cont act wit h before you make an act ual sale. Essent ially,

an aut oresponser allows you t o aut omat e part of your

market ing campaign. FREE - A New Idea for Making Money Online Every Day HERE FREE - Turn Your Blog Int o A Non-St op List Building Machine FREE - Top 10 List Building Mist akes How t o Explode Your Email List FREE Using Offline Sources

We misint erpret , filt er, or change 70% t o 90% of what we hear. Communicat ing messages clearly, and in a format t hat t he receiver will underst and, is difficult . It 's easy t o miscommunicat e. By wat ching which words you choose, your message will be more clearly communicat ed.

Cause

Why does all t his confusion occur? One of t he many reasons is t hat people suffer from informat ion overload. They simply can't process everyt hing t hey receive via email - nor do t hey really want t o.

As much as you would like t hem t o, recipient s of your email messages don't give every message t hey receive from you t heir undivided at t ent ion. In realit y, people read email quickly; t hey do ot her t asks while t hey read email (such as t alking on t he t elephone); and t hey ignore messages alt oget her.

Even under t he best condit ions, it 's easy for t he informat ion you send t o become dist ort ed. You don't want t o complicat e mat t ers by sending email messages loaded wit h t echnical t erms or indust ry-specific jargon t hat would require t he reader t o decipher t he language before he/she can even begin t o use t he dat a.

Example

Here's an example of how easy it is t o miscommunicat e. Even when people are saying t he exact same t hings, t hey can say t hem in such a way t hat t hey cannot underst and each ot her. Have you ever done t his?

15


each ot her. Have you ever done t his?

Direct ions:

The following are familiar sayings you have heard many t imes. However, t he wording in t his example is different . Can you re-phrase t hese st at ement s using more familiar language?

1. Comput e not your immat ure gallinaceans prior t o t heir being produced.

2. Pulchrit ude does not ext end below t he surface of t he derma.

3. You cannot est imat e t he value of t he cont ent s of a bound, print ed narrat ive from it s ext erior vest ure.

4.One may address a member of t he Equidea family t oward aqueous liquid, but one is incapable of compelling him t o quaff.

Solut ions

1.Don't count your chickens before t hey've hat ched.

2.Beaut y is only skin deep.

3.You can't judge a book by it s cover.

Copyright 2006 Alicia M Forest and Client Abundance.com

Do you ever find yourself t empt ed t o purchase somet hing online, and even wit h a money-back guarant ee, you're st ill not quit e sure about handing over your cash?

Well, some of your prospect s will feel t he same way as t hey read your sales page for your product or service. Your offer sounds great , t he right guarant ee eliminat es t heir risk, but t hey st ill wonder if what ever it is t hey are considering purchasing is right for t hem.

If you want t o increase t he likelihood t hat t hey will t ake out t heir wallet , simply offer t hem a free or paid t rial! Haven't you loved it when you've been given t he opt ion t o t ry somet hing out for free or very lit t le cost t o make sure it 's what you want ?

By offering a t rial t o your prospect s, you're doing t wo t hings of value for your businessbuilding. One is t hat you are showing t hat you are confident in t he value of your product t o offer a t rial, and t he ot her is t hat you are essent ially eliminat ing t he last lingering quest ion in your prospect 's mind: "What if I don't like it ?"

Allowing your prospect s t o decide for t hemselves whet her or not your product or service is for t hem answers t hat quest ion for t hem.

So, what kinds of product s and services are best for free t rials?

1. Downloadable product s

20


If you're offering informat ion product s, like ebooks or how-t o guides, you can offer a sample chapt er as a free t rial. If you're offering an e-course, you can offer one lesson as a free t rial. If you're offering an audio program, you could offer a 15-minut e clip as a free t rial. You could also creat e an int roduct ory component t o any of t hese t hat gives solid informat ion, but t hat also leaves your reader or list ener want ing more.

2. Membership sit es

It 's common pract ice t o offer a free, $1 or $4.95 t rial for a membership sit e. And it 's common pract ice because it 's a very effect ive way t o convert your t rial member t o a paid member. Just like your local fit ness club's t rial period - it 's much easier t o sign up for a mont h for a couple of bucks t han t o pay t he ent ire gym membership in one lump sum or t o be bound t o a cont ract for a cert ain lengt h of t ime before you even know if t he membership is for you.

3. Physical product s

Offer t o send your product t o your cust omer for a small processing fee plus shipping and t ell t hem t hey have 30 days t o t est it out . If t hey don't ret urn it wit hin t hose 30 days, bill t hem t he full price for t he product (minus t he processing fee, if you'd like).

4. One-on-one services

I want t o make it very clear t hat I am not in favor of compliment ary 1:1 session for any service professional. However, if you'd like t o give a free 15-minut e consult at ion t o see if t here's a good mat ch bet ween you and your prospect , t hat can increase your client base.

A bet t er opt ion is t o offer a free or low-cost group session. Give an int roduct ory t alk about your services and answer quest ions, perhaps even offer a discount t o t hose who sign up wit h you right t hen. This way, you're t ruly leveraging your t ime and t alent by allowing your prospect s t o self-select t hemselves out wit hout your having t o go t hrough t hat process individually.

21


Just make sure t hat along t he way and at t he end of t he t rail period, you convey t he benefit s of t he paid version in all t hese cases. Having a qualit y product or service and following up effect ively t o convert your t rial cust omer t o a paid-in-full cust omer will increase your overall sales.

So, which of your offerings can you give a t rial on? Choose one, creat e t he t rial, and see what happens t o your bot t om line.

6. How T o Build An Opt In Subscriber List (By T eatime T omorrow) FREE - A New Idea for Making Money Online Every Day HERE FREE - Turn Your Blog Int o A Non-St op List Building Machine FREE - Top 10 List Building Mist akes How t o Explode Your Email List FREE Using Offline Sources

So you've bought t he ebooks, courses & "secret " opt in list builders but your aut oresponder is st ill as empt y as a spammers head. Don't fret - in t his art icle we'll discuss TWO simple yet shockingly effect ive st rat egies t hat you can implement t o build a highly responsive opt in email list (and yes, you can do so by t ea-t ime t omorrow), all wit h minimal expenses.

Before st art ing, you should know t hat I've used t hese met hods personally t o put floods of opt in subscribers ont o my list s - fast .

Met hod ONE - Use Giveaway Event s To Explode Your List Int o The Thousands Wit hin Days.

The first JV event I ever part icipat ed in was Mark Hendricks 12 Days Of Christ mas event . When t he event went live, I was st unned - I was receiving opt -in subscribers at t he rat e of one per minut e when my gift became available. And do you know what ? Many of t hese subscribers went on t o purchase my product s, sign up t o my memberships, click on my Adsense displays and are st ill happy, product ive subscribers & cust omers t oday.

A list of a couple of t housand - built in a few short days.

Marks event t akes place only once a year. But t here's anot her list building event t hat 's always on where some of t he biggest int ernet market ers online share t heir subscribers wit h you. You can view it here:

ht t p://www.linkbrander.com/go/25418

23


There are several of t hese event s every year - be on t he look out for t hem and part icipat e as a cont ribut or t o as many as you can. It would be fairly easy t o obt ain 10,000 responsive subscribers over a year using t his one met hod alone. It 's probably t he best kept secret of opt -in list building (t hough perhaps not for long).

Met hod TWO - If You're In The Biz Opps/Home Biz/Int ernet Market ing Niche Then You MUST Do This.

This st rat egy is exclusively for t hose who are in t he business opport unit ies/int ernet market ing/MLM t ype niches. It allows you t o reach about a t housand opt in subscribers everyday - subscribers t hat are wit hin t he same general market as yourself.

How does it work? Let me explain. About once a day I get an email from someone. And in ret urn, I get t o send an opt -in email t o 1,000 people who have a reasonable int erest in what I have t o say. I get t o do t his everyday.

Now t hink about t his - being able t o reach 1,000 opt in subscribers a day means you can reach 30,000 subscribers a mont h. To reach t hat sort of audience wit h a solo email ad (for example) would cost at least $97 or so. That 's why t his list building t echnique is an absolut e gem (you can set -up for an invest ment of as lit t le as ZERO). You can find out more here:

ht t p://www.linkbrander.com/go/25420

List building is a funny t hing. You could buy t he most expensive courses and flashy soft ware, spend t housands of dollars on expensive leads and st ill get ZERO result s. Then, you do somet hing t hat 's free or inexpensive and it pays off dividends right off t he bat . It 's just one of t hose t hings where you can only get it right t hrough experience - and in my t ime online I've seen few t echniques t hat can build a list as FAST as t he t wo met hods out lined in t his art icle.

It 's t ime you underst ood t hat in order t o creat e a long t erm, cash generat ive business online you MUST build an opt in list . There's no t ime like t he present so why not put

It 's Never t oo Early:

We oft en t alk wit h companies who aspire t o reach many of t he same goals we've achieved wit h email - regular communicat ions, and enhanced relat ionships. Amazingly, many of t hese companies are considerably larger t han us - but yet object on t he grounds t hat t hey 'aren't ready.' Baloney! Email market ing is incredibly easy t o get st art ed - and in our opinion it is most effect ive when it is done wit h a philosophy of simplicit y

Frequent Cont act is Key:

Email market ing does not work as well for a one-t ime quick hit market ing st rat egy. Email allows you t o build a regular, ongoing dialogue wit h your best client s and prospect s. And t hat becomes self-select ing - t hose who most wish t o do business wit h you will appreciat e t he regular communicat ions. Those who do not can opt -out . It t ruly is a winwin.

Be Regular:

One of t he real keys t o success is how frequent ly (or not ) you communicat e. We occasionally provide special alert s, but generally, for us, once a mont h is plent y oft en t o communicat e. I firmly believe - and our result s have confirmed - t hat regular but respect ful communicat ion is opt imal.

Cont ent is King:

26


Ult imat ely, for professional service firms like ours it is ideas t hat build relat ionships - and ideas are driven and support ed by cont ent . We st rongly recommend t he creat ion of a regular communicat ions vehicle - whet her an e-Newslet t er or ot her vehicle. It has worked for us and it works for a number of our client s.

Be Brief:

We also have found t hat it is crit ical t o keep t he cont ent out of t he newslet t er. While t his may seem t o be a cont radict ion t o t he previous point , it is not . You should let people know about your ideas, but not force t hem down t heir t hroat s. Use t he newslet t er t o point t o your cont ent (on your sit e or elsewhere) but don't t ry t o cram it all in. It shouldn't t ake someone 10 minut es t o decide if your newslet t er is wort h a read. An overly long, dense, hard-t o-read newslet t er simply wast es people's t ime. In addit ion, by keeping t he cont ent ext ernal, you can use click t hrough analyt ics t o see who is really int erest ed in what cont ent - and t ailor your follow-up appropriat ely.

Keep it Ent ert aining.

We're shocked by t he number of dry, boring newslet t ers t hat clog our inboxes. We subscribe t o many newslet t ers t o keep up on our compet it ors, but we usually only read t hose t hat keep us ent ert ained. Try adding a bit of humor if possible.

Don't Hard-Sell.

The flip side of t he coin is when we see companies who feel as t hough t hey need t o close business in every sent ence. Email market ing is about relat ionship building, and it is somet hing you're doing for t he long- t erm - not a quick revenue hit . Even for consumerorient ed ret ailers, t his fact st ill holds t rue- cust omer relat ionships are profit able when t hey are long-t erm, so your market ing effort s need t o be orient ed t hat way.
