An autoresponder is a software that does all the technical stuff like sending the emails, managing subscribers, handling unsubscribes, verifying emails, customizing the messages, and the list goes on and on.

In order to run your online business will also want software that has autoresponder technology. Let me explain to you what that is.

An autoresponder is something that sends out the emails automatically. The best way to explain it is with an example.

Let’s assume you set up your autoresponder software with a welcome email, and then three content emails, each to be sent one day apart.

John joins your mailing list on Thursday. The autoresponder sends her the welcome email immediately.

The software then waits one day and on Friday sends her email one, it waits another day and then sends her email two, it waits another day and then sends her email three.

The autoresponder software makes the emails feel fresh and automates all the work. This way you don’t have to send emails every day.

In fact, the emails you are getting from us right now are being sent by an autoresponder. Pretty cool huh!

Autoresponders are unfortunately not free, but they are a fantastic tool which automates almost all the emailing work.

There are a few good companies out there, but I prefer AWeber and here is a link if you are interested.

Remember, the more you generate buzz and excitement, the more likely you’ll be to get sales.

If you’re new to email marketing or affiliate marketing I strongly advise you look at this recommended affiliate training.

Want to take things to the next level and become a $10,000 a month marketer… I recommend ClickBank University as essential next level training for action takers.

Five Tips for Building Good Relationships With Your Email List

If you have been trying to make money online for more than a day I am sure someone told you that the money in the list. This is true to some extent but the truth is money is in the relationship with your list. So building good relationships with your email list should in the top of your to-do list.

If you want to succeed in online business, one of the things that you’ll need to do is build good relationships with your email list.

Having good relationships with your list of prospects and buyers is important because people buy from other people who they love and trust, or you may need something from them in the future. But most of all, it’s just good ethics to be nice and try to develop a relationship with the people around you. Here are five ways that you can do that.

Five Tips for Building Good Relationships With Your Email List

1. Be interested in them.

If you want to get someone talking, and develop a relationship, one of the best ways to do it is to ask them about themselves. But you don’t use this tactic unless you actually are interested in them. People can tell when someone is being disingenuous. Make sure that you are interested in helping them, remember they are real people with real problems, not just an email address.

2. Treat them with respect.

Just because someone is on your list, or hasn’t achieved the same level of success as you does not mean that they are a lesser person. In fact, they may surpass you someday and you definitely want them to remember you in a positive light.

3. Ask them to help you with something.

People actually enjoy helping others most of the time. While they might not enjoy being asked to help you move furniture, asking someone for their advice or to take a look at something you’ve done and give you their opinion can be a wonderful relationship builder.

4. Be friendly.

You always want to be friendly to the people around you. Even if you are having a bad day yourself, remember that it isn’t their fault. You would be surprised how often people will tell others about “that guy who is always positive.” You want to be that guy (or girl).

5. Socialize.

Try to invite your prospects to follow you in your social media or being friends on Facebook, engage with them, comment and reply to their social media posts, this way they will know that you are a real person and not a guy who hides behind the computer.
