An excellent autoresponder

What number of free autoresponders did you try? How many did you actually use? How many emails were you able to get through by using them? How can you tell? What percentage of people opened your follow-up message?

I am pointing out that if you don’t know the answers to these questions, you are probably not running a successful followup campaign. These are important elements that you should consider when choosing an autoresponder.

To ensure that you get the best autoresponder, here are some good tips. Your autoresponder should be compared to top marketers. They are likely using the best. This step is essential!

You might also make observations about spam filters. You may have received an e-mail with something similar to this: “FREE” This is a great way to defeat spam filters because they won’t be able read anything free. It can take some time to go through the article and find out which words are “Danger words”. This feature can help you in your marketing efforts. Make sure to find an autoresponder with a spam rating function… this will show you exactly where your “Danger!” words are in your article.

Your statistics are another important aspect of e-mail marketign. Your statistics can help you determine if your subject lines are effective or if your brand is well-known. Knowing your e-mail statistics is a first step towards optimizing your sales potential. It is important to find an autoresponder that can provide detailed analysis and followups.

What should a followup include? That’s a good question. I have found that subscribers should be directed to the full article on the internet. This is a good idea for several reasons. In the followup email, you can make an exciting teaser and ask for your article to be published online. You also have the possibility that many subscribers will read other articles from your archive. While your subscriber may not be interested in a single article, they might find the information they need by looking through previous articles.

Broadcasting! Now that your subscribers have finished their initial follow-up series, what do you do? You will need an autoresponder that allows you broadcast an update or offer to your entire subscriber list. This feature is essential for all subscribers.

Don’t bore your subscribers! Give them a problem to solve and give them a solution. It’s easy…

A Guide to Advertising in the Media

Media is powerful. The average person will spend an immense amount of time consuming it in some form. They will also spend significant amounts of their lives looking at, listening, or watching ads. You need to be able to harness the power of the media.

Advertise in Magazines and Newspapers.

You can find two types of advertising in magazines and newspapers: display and classified. Display ads are small ads at the back of the publication. Classified ads can be as small as a corner of a page or as large as a double-page spread.

To find out the charges for advertising in a publication, go to its website (the rate cards section) or call the advertising department. Grab your jaw off the ground. Advertising in print media is expensive. It’s not affordable for home-based businesses.

However, there is an exception: trade and niche magazines. You’ll be amazed at how many magazines are available to fill every niche in the market if you’ve ever walked into a newsagent. It is important to choose the magazine that will appeal to your target audience. If you are a wedding photographer, for example, search for magazines called “Your Wedding”, “Bride” or similar. These magazines are far less expensive than advertising in general-audience publications and will get more responses.

Radio advertising

There’s a chance that there is a local radio station near you. You might think about buying time once your home business has grown to a reasonable size.

The only type of home business that can really benefit from radio advertising to justify the expense is one that deals with cars. Radio is limited to car entertainment. This means that most people who see your ads will own cars and might be interested in the products or services you offer. You can get lots of responses if you provide something people actually need, even if it’s free.

This could lead to a too large response. Radio is very time sensitive and you will be mobbed again the next day. Radio advertising gives the listener no chance to save your ad or refer to it later. Any ads that involve a telephone number will be utterly ineffective.

Advertisement on Television

This would not be a good idea unless your business is growing rapidly. It would be difficult to produce and air an ad on local cable channels, even for less than $10,000. If there is a market for your product, and you have the money to do it, you can make a lot of money. Home businesses that are unique and useful inventing products with easily-demonstrated benefits tend to be the most successful. A 60-second advertisement, free phone number, and a $19.95 price point are enough to sell almost any product.

Advertisement on Billboards

This one is often overlooked, but it can be extremely effective if done right. Billboard ads can be quite expensive but they are very durable and can be targeted specifically to an area. This will give you the best results if it is placed near enough to your business. It could even say something like “turn left at next junction” or some other similar message. Although phone numbers are useless, you might be able to put a website address there.








Advertisement at the Movies

This is the last one. You might not have noticed that local businesses were advertised before big-budget commercials. This is a great place for advertising inexpensively and in a high-profile manner, especially for takeaway food business owners.

Four Simple Steps to Great Free Advertising

Advertising a product or service, or any undertaking such as a website, has always been difficult for the wallet.

I am a follower for the free advertising mode.

Two strategies that I used to get free advertising are what I want to share with you.

Advertise on free, but highly-visited websites is the first strategy.

Some of my favorite web sites accept advertising free of charge have been published. These free advertising sites can be accessed by visiting

Four Steps to Unbeatable Marketing

You may have noticed that certain people always get the best deals. You pay full price, and you think you did okay, until someone else shows up with the exact same thing for a fraction of the cost. This really gets your goat! How does this happen? They aren’t afraid to ask for an additional discount.

You can’t be too proud of yourself if you don’t ask the next time an advertising representative visits. Ask for a larger discount even if you are already receiving one. You don’t have to…because you didn’t ask.

2. 2. Trim

Or is it? Advertising is a competitive field. You might find that some of your shorter ads are more successful than the larger, more expensive ones. You don’t have to reduce the advertising budget, but you won’t be reducing the quality of the ads.

3. Grab the Freebies

What is the difference between publicity and advertising? …who is doing the talking. It’s advertising when you sell yourself. It’s advertising when someone is trying to sell you something. This generates credibility, and you don’t want it to end.

Consider all the ways that you can put your business in the limelight. Have news? Write a press release. Send some “how-to” articles to magazines, newspapers and other publications. Include a brief byline at the bottom. You can promote the product from a competitor in exchange for them promoting it. Think about the completely different markets they impact!

There are many ways to get free advertising that will benefit your company. You won’t always be able to get free advertising, but you can still get some for nothing.

4. 4.

Are you too excited to miss your opportunity? You need to make it better. You don’t have to reduce prices any more, but you still need to make profit. It’s possible to make the deal more appealing by making the product more valuable or offering bonuses that are valued but not too expensive.

Use expirations to motivate buyers. Open ended offers encourage procrastination, which leads to…nowhere. If the customer is aware that he only has Saturday to buy an item that he will pay more for, he will make it a priority and head to your shop.


Advertising doesn’t need to break the bank to be successful. You can increase your profit margins by learning to negotiate and knowing when small ads are more effective than large ones.
