When I first come online, I had the chance to work with a mentor. Do you want to know one of the very first lessons he taught me?
Internet Marketing Lesson #1: Your Autoresponder Is The First Commandment of Online Business
I was lucky enough to understand that real money should be made in the backend and not in the front end. This is the reason why so many want to start their own online business and end up making no money.
Please bare with me while I explain how autoresponder works and how you need to follow up with your prospects for maximum sales and profits.
1. How autoresponder works
I will give you a quick overview of the whole process. The first thing you need to do is to create a squeeze page and add your optin form. This will allow you to build a list and send them your educational and promotional messages to build trust and make sales.
Please pay attention to what I just said above. Note that trust comes before sales. Don't try to do it the other way, because although you will still be able to make some sales, this will be short lived.
2. How often you you email your subscribers?
Setting up your autoresponder software to send your newsletter once a week is a good rule of thumbs because you don't want your subscribers to forget you or forget the reason why they subscribed to your list.
Don't forget that money is in the backend and that the very first thing you want to do whenever you start a new project is building your list.
