How Clint Cora Uses Auto Responders For Newsletters
If you are
creating a website that is effective, you must find ways to keep your
visitors coming back for repeat visits and to stay in touch with
them. One very effective way to do this is through a
newsletter you can publish but rather than just posting new issues on
your website, it would be better to have your website visitors
subscribe so that they can receive your newsletter via email via an
autoresponder system. This is what I do as my Motivational
Inspirational Quotes Success newsletter sometimes alerts them
articles at my website.
The difficult way to manage subscriptions is for people to email you to
subscribe and then manually develop a database of subscribers followed
by mail merging each new issue. Making adjustments to your
database can turn out to be a nightmare.
The easier and most effective way is to use an autoresponder software
system. I use one called AWeber and I’ll take you through the
process of what I do with my monthly Motivational Inspirational Quotes
AWeber has a very easy system to create many different professional
looking sign up boxes for my visitors to subscribe. I use
boxes that are right on my webpages as well as hover boxes that appear
over webpages when my visitors first arrive at
clintcora.com. I choose the design of box I want as
well as the information I want my visitors to fill in and then it’s
just a matter of pasting a generated HTML code that goes into my
I can monitor the effectiveness of each type of box I use since AWeber
automatically tracks the statistics of the boxes. I can even
run test trials where the system will alternate two different boxes on
the same webpage to determine which one is more effective in getting
Subscribers can always choose to unsubscribe anytime as the
autoresponder system includes a special link at the bottom of each
email sent out. The maintenance of adding and unsubscribing
is therefore automatic. This makes clintcora.com in
compliance with anti-spam regulations since visitors choose to opt in
as subscribers and can leave whenever they wish.
When subscribers first sign up, they are sent a welcome message from
me. This is known as a follow up message.
AWeber automatically does this for me 24/7 whenever I have a new
subscriber. This is why such as system is called an
autoresponder. For another website I run, I even have a
series of follow up messages that are sent out at predetermined time
intervals after each message. This setup is ideal for
multiday educational reports for example.
The other type of email message I use is called a broadcast and this is
what I use for my newsletters. I usually write my newsletters
in Microsoft Word first and then paste over to AWeber. The
system allows me to send out the newsletter as an HTML or a simple text
message. I tend to use text messages just because not
everyone out there has computer setups to read HTML messages
efficiently, especially in areas without high speed
I add links to useful webpages in my newsletters and one very useful
thing that AWeber can do is track the rate of how often each link is
clicked on. This helps me learn which topics are of most
interest to my subscribers.
When it comes to writing my Motivational Inspirational Quotes Success
newsletters, I will write when I’m inspired. Sometimes, I end
up writing enough material for a few issues at a time. I can
then create separate broadcast messages on the autoresponder as future
newsletters and specify which future dates each issue will be sent
out. This is all set up in advance so the system sends out
the next few issues automatically for me while I work at other projects
(or while I’m sleeping!).
I can also choose to send out the same newsletters or broadcast
messages to subscribers who signed on from different websites I
run. If I feel that a certain issue would be relevant for
visitors from let’s say two different websites, then AWeber allows me
to include different subscriber lists for each message.
Subscribers from my blogs and martial arts website also receive my
Motivational Inspirational Quotes Success newsletter.
This autoresponder software system is quite easy to use. I
can create as many lists and send out as many messages as I
want. If I tried this with my own email system, I will likely
have problems with my internet service provider.
The thorough statistics track how many subscribers I have and even
which countries they are from. This is how I can tell that
there are subscribers for my Motivational Inspirational Quotes Success
newsletter globally. There are separate reports for each
message I send out as well.
The support service from AWeber is also good. They have an
online chat system with their support staff during business hours and
their email response is usually within 24 hours. They even
have educational tutorials to help new users.
AWeber is one of the top autoresponders chosen by successful webmasters
today. I’ve been using this system for a few years and have
easily built up almost 10,000 subscribers worldwide for my newsletters
combined. The annual subscription to the service is
affordable and I definitely recommend this autoresponder to all serious
website owners. Click on the AWeber graphics on this page to
learn more about their system. They often let you try their
system free for a month to see if you like it.
