How to use Autoresponders
The idea of using autoresponders is, that while you promote any program, you will not let people sign in directly. Instead giving them a squeeze page where they sign up for your autoresponder first.
The autoresponder then send them a verifiaction mail and once verified, the auto responder sends them a link where they can find the information about the program you promote and your affiliate link.
Building your own list, while you promote other programs, that,s the main basic idea behind.
How valuable are those signups which came in via your autoresponder?
People of course know what you are doing, they sign up just to receive the info you promised or even to get a gift which some people promise beside the information about the promoted program.
I have used this type of autoresponder messages a lot in the past and always failed to build a responsive list, because 90 - 99 percent of all email addresses had been trash. As soon i tried to reach out nobody responded.
I had built a big useless list and wasted more than 20 bucks a month for a long period of time and at the end I had no gain at all.
What to do with your leads who have signed up to your autoresponder?
NEVER EVER bother them with too much mails, do not invite them here and there. Give them valuable information, and invite them to an interesting topic to a google hangout or skype group. Build a relationship first.
Do not abuse your autoresponder, do not abuse your leads.
Patience is the clue when you want to make business.
