By Mark A Stafford http://LearnInternetMarketing.Net/Free What Is the Best Autoresponder to Build Your Email List? You know you have to be able to communicate with your potential buyers and that an email auto response service is needed, but should you pay for the service or use a free service? Free Services: - STOP! You do NOT want to use a free service and here's why. While the software mechanics are there and probably work fine, a free service will not communicate with the large, free email providers like Gmail and Yahoo and deal with possible spam issues and make sure your emails get delivered. What if the servers go down right as you are sending out a large, and hopefully profitable campaign? Where is the motivation for them to get the servers back up and functioning? Why should they care if your emails are delivered? You are not paying them! Many free email delivery services will automatically place ads in your emails to generate revenue. What if you are just starting out and your ad copy is not very good and the "Ad" placed by the email service company is better than yours and they get all of your clicks? Well I guess all that work and money you spent building your list built paid off for somebody, right? Maybe that "free" email service isn't so free anymore? Paid Autoresponder Services: In the long run you will actually see more bang from your buck and feel confident knowing that most of your emails are being delivered by using a paid service. Remember you are paying for web hosting, advertising to drive folks to your squeeze page, or whatever, why not round off you business model with a reliable email service? Which paid email service is the best? I am glad you asked. There are quite a few good services out there which include, GetResponse, Aweber, ProSender & ProFollow, just to name a few, and more services are popping up everyday. When deciding on the best service for yourself, consider how many people you anticipate to be on your list. This is usually the determining factor that most paid services base their monthly rates on. Aweber seems to be one of the most talked about services by the gurus, with GetResponse coming in second. I have been using Aweber for a couple of years now and they are totally awesome. They base their rates on the number of subscribers you have and the first rate hike is at 501 subscribers. Now check this out: Aweber started a "Generic" email serviced called ProFollow. This is basically the same service as Aweber, same back-end functionality and they do the same customer service to make sure your emails are delivered, but here is the kicker, their first rate hike is at 10,001 subscribers! Wow! If you are just beginning to build your email list, are on a budget and looking for a reliable autoresponder service, I might suggest you take a look at ProFollow. http://LearnInternetMarketing.Net/Free Autoresponder Sequence Examples to Send to Your List You need to craft friendly autoresponder sequences to build trust with your readers on your new email list. While this might seem daunting at first, it is actually fairly easy and straight forward. Think for a moment what happens when you meet a new person at work, the store or the bar. You introduce yourself and start chatting about the weather, the game, significant others, etc. You wouldn't walk up to somebody in a bar and say "Hi my name is Mark, buy my stuff", now would you? As funny as that sounds, many internet marketers do just that. I will join somebody's list and the first email says "Thanks for joining my list. By the way my friend Joe Blow, has this great product, click on my affiliate link and I will include these bonuses. You will get $10,000 worth of bonuses for buying this $47 product". While the offer might be very good, maybe even the best bonuses that any affiliate is offering for that particular promotion, why should I put money in your pocket? I don't know you! In the immortal words of Janet Jackson, "What have you done for me lately?""How about you write me a check for $10,000 and then I will buy the $47 product?" All kidding aside, here is where your initial followup emails to a new subscriber should mimic a scenario of you meeting somebody in real life. Imagine a scenario of two people meeting in a bar for the first time. You should send the follow up emails once a day. Ready for the light bulb to go off? Real Life (RL) - "Hi John, my name is Mark, let me buy you a beer." * 1st Follow Up Email (FUE) - Hi John, my name is Mark, please download your free gift for signing onto my email list. * RL: (The Story - Same day) - John, yes I have lived in this town for 5 years. I am married and have 2 kids, blah, blah, blah. * 2nd FUE: (The Story) - John, I have been working in the IM field for X years and create products in the X niche. I have done this, that and the other, etc. * RL: (Near Future - Same day) - Hey John It would be nice to meet you again here in a few days for another drink. * 3rd FUE: (Near Future) - Hey John, I will be sending you frequent emails because I want to help you in anyway possible and I typically have good informational reports I will send you. * RL: (Different day) - Great to see you again John, let me buy you a beer. * 4th FUE: - Hi john, I hope all is well with you. I have attached a brand new special report I just finished and thought you might gain some value by reading it, etc. * RL: (Different day again) - Great to see you again John, let's grab some lunch, I'll buy. * 5th FUE: - Hi John, I hope you liked my last report, here is another new report that I think really help you with X. * RL: (Different day again) - Hi John, I would love to meet up and grab a few beers with you, oh you want to buy? Cool, I'll leave the tip! (Rule of reciprocity - you bought them stuff, now they want to return the favor) * 6th FUE: (The sale) - Hi John, I hope all is well and you are making money in X. There is a new product launching that I think you will gain a huge benefit from. If you do buy through my link, I'll give you these free bonuses (leave the tip). Well there you go. That type of email auto sequence is what smart internet marketers do. You do not want to be the hard seller right out of the gate when you receive a new subscriber. The secret to email marketing: * Care about your subscribers * Deliver an insane amount of value with free reports, videos, audios, * Remain in constant contact with them so they don't forget who you are. * Make money! You always want to over-deliver with your initial autoresponder sequence emails to your list. I hope you enjoyed this short report! To Your Success, P.S.
