Auto Responder in Gmail

9 replies
Hey guys.

Appreciate your attention.

I'm looking to set up an auto responder - I use gmail for my email needs.

I have a website (wordpress) in which I'm collecting emails, but it's currently set up with regular contact forms which send regular emails to my gmail.

I want to know if there's a way I can have gmail recognize the email coming in (from subject line) - and reply back the appropriate email.

Or if there's any other way to achieve the results I'm looking for.
- If i continue this way, it will be really hard to scale. Right now I'm doing everything by hand, manually, whenever I have time.

Thank you for the replies in advance!!

    Open Gmail.
    In the top right corner, click the Settings icon.
    Find the "Autoresponder" item.
    Select Enable autoresponder.
    Specify the duration of the answering machine, enter the subject and message text.
    If necessary, select the checkbox "Answer only recipients from my contact list".

    I see the vacation option - I'm not sure if that's what you're referring to.

    However, my mission is to actually set up an automatic reply so that when someone subscribes to my page, they will get an automated email.

    At the same time, if I get an email from someone already on my list - it won't send them that reply.

    The system would have to automatically determine who to send what auto reply email to based on the subject line of the incoming email.

    What you are looking for doesn't exist in Gmail.

    Is there a reason you don't just use an autoresponder service?

    To answer your question, YES and NO. Yes Gmail can send an auto response, but it cannot effectively manage your email list, nor can it send an auto response sequence.

    The Money is in the List

    We've all heard that phrase before, and it is true. Having an email list allows you to have a captive audience who (hopefully) want to hear from you. And so I say... build a list - properly

    Use an email list service. There are many out there, each with its' pros and cons. Don't cheap out... it is important to recognize that you are building a business, and there are expenses. If you *must* be thrifty, try SendLane. It's only 9 bucks a month, and it has sales pages and squeeze pages included... that way you can build funnels without additional outside services such as ClickFunnels or Leadpages.

    Another thing, you really do not want to be in this business and have people see a "gmail" address. Some platforms won't even allow it. You really gotta have your own domain.

    Don't let Internet Marketing overwhelm you... let's take the journey together! Build Money Machines!

      Thanks so much. I really appreciate your response.
      I will be looking into SendLane.

      The thing is, I don't have a product yet. I just launched my blog, and am still trying to gather some followers. I have less than 10 subscribers right now. Still trying to build my list - I figured until I had a decent number of followers, and something to actually sell, I'd try to keep my overhead low as possible.

      I have a website domain, but godaddy now charges extra for email. My last company's website (about 6 years ago) included one. Not sure why this one didn't. Do you have any providers you'd recommend for email domain?

    I suggest you Start Using a Pro Auto-responder service
    You can start for FREE with Mailchimp as long as you have under 2000 subscribers.

    Maybe something like the following would work for you. You can set the smtp to gmail.

    If you want to use your domain for email, you could set up a Gsuite account. Which is a gmail account that uses your domain. The cost is $5 per month.

    Hi, l'm sure your list will keep growing so best to get professional ones like Getrespond, Aweber, etc. These 2 should still have 1-mth trial sign-up if I remember correctly.
