When starting an online business, an email autoresponder service or system, is one of the first tools you will need to buy. A lot of newcomers mistakenly think they should wait until they have a large following, before hooking up an autoresponder. However, building a list is something that you should do right from day one.
So which email autoresponder tool should you invest in? Many people start with a free service. We already know that there is no such thing as free. There is always a hook. People in business cannot afford to give away their services or products for free.
Yes, there are free tools that allow you to build a list, but they are not always in your best interest. In exchange for allowing you to build a list, they often insert advertisements into your emails. Not only that, but you are limited in the number of subscribers that you can have.
Whenever possible, it is best to start off with a paid email autoresponder service, or system, that you can afford. The first thing you want to look for is reliability. You want to make sure that all of your emails go out in a timely fashion.
Whether you are emailing about your own offers, or as an affiliate for someone else, it is important that you get your messages out in a timely manner. You don’t want to set an email to go out at 11 AM EST only to see it delayed for several hours.
You also want an email autoresponder that does not have a reputation of having their emails go straight to spam folders. You want your messages to get through to the subscribers who has signed up to your list.
Some of the best companies that will get your messages delivered are aWeber and Get Response, among many others. Whichever company you choose for your email autoresponder, they should have a good support system in place for your own needs.
That means they have help available 24/7, along with in-depth tutorials that teach you how to use the system. While free email autoresponders may not be t+he best option, you don’t have to pay more than necessary for good service.
You want pricing that fits your budget. Most autoresponder services charge a fee based on the number of subscribers you have. That means someone who only has a list of 1,000 subscribers would pay less than someone with a list of 25,000 subscribers. And here is where you have to do your own math. As your subscriber list grows, your monthly fees will go up with it.
Hopefully you will recoup some of your investment through products sales, or revenue from affiliate programs. Just about all of the autoresponder services have a free trial, so you can see whether or not the system works for you, so make sure you take advantage of that.
I used aWeber and Get Response in the past, and what I found was their service was OK, but the costs increased very quickly. So I turned to a service that charges a flat monthly fee, with unlimited subscribers, unlimited message campaigns, and no limits on the emails going out. That does not mean you can spam people, but in your day to day email marketing there are no limit.
The company also has an awesome compensation plan that pays you to promote their service. And again, just one flat fee per month. Well worth checking out. Sign up for a FREE trial today!
