Question: Autoresponder messages

8 replies
Let say I only set a 7 day long autoresponder messages but my subscriber has subscribed for 14 days already. So what if I added one autoresponder message in between the 7 and 14 day, like say the 8th day, will he receive that message even if hes on the 14th day being my subscriber?

    If you are using aweber, yes it works that way. I'm not sure about other autoresponders but probably yes, too.

      I am using list wire, does anyone have an answer on mine?

      Another question...
      By the way, as a beginner, how long do you think my auto responder messages should be, should it last at least 3 months (I mean I send my subscribers offers, tips or ask them question weekly not daily)

    You should be able to do what you've mentioned.

    As for your second question, I say you should not stop sending messages. Keep building the relationship and the rapport. If people stay with you for 3 months, it only means they want to keep hearing from you. Keep sending out messages with value. Give tips,trainings and sell the things you think are of value.

    Keep sending out emails. 3-5x a week is a pretty good way to keep in touch.

    The number of messages might not be as important as whether or not you let your subscribers know how often and when to expect your messages.

      This is surely a question for ListWire's technical support? :confused:

      Please excuse the personal opinion (offered as a marketer's subscriber - not as a ListWire customer myself) that I'd expect few people on a ListWire list still to be opening the messages after 14 days anyway: have you seen how they're sent out and how they arrive? Always a good idea to opt in to one of your own lists, using a spare email address, and see what they look like from the receiving end.

      If money's an issue, GetResponse offer free lists for the first 100 subscribers.

      Autoresponder services are one of the few things in internet marketing in which "free" can actually be very poor value: there are some comments on "free autoresponder services" in this thread.

      It depends on what sort of list it is, what sort of relationship you have (and hope to build) with your subscribers, the niche, what made them opt in, and the traffic demographics.

      Nobody can answer you helpfully, really, without knowing more about all those things.

      Personally, I send email on days 1, 3, 6, 10 and 15 and thereafter at 5-day intervals for ever, with the first promotion typically in the third email, and further promotional material occupying parts of one email in three. But it doesn't follow that this is going to be appropriate for your business. It depends who your subscribers are and what they expect.

      For myself, from the limited split-testing I've done, if I sent email daily I'd confidently expect (a) "unsubscriptions", and (b) reduced earnings from the remaining subscribers. Others' mileages may vary!

        Oh geez, here we go again with Alexa dumping on our service for no good reason...

        The emails we sent look like any other email, depending on the format the sender chooses. They're either text based, or HTML, and the formatting is entirely dependent on the person sending the message... JUST LIKE ANY OTHER AUTORESPONDER ON THE PLANET!

        Why would you be any more surprised that someone on a List Wire list would be opening message after 14 days than anyone, on any other list, maintained at any other service?

        Your logic baffles me... because it makes no damn sense.

        Actually, all you did was post a link to a thread where everyone agrees with your point of view, without offering any links to the multiple threads where people are in total disagreement with you...

        But I'm not surprised... you seem to have some kind of vendetta against us for some reason that I've yet to figure out.

        Here's what I'll tell you. In the past, a free autoresponder may have been a bad idea... but there's this cool thing called technology, and as crazy as this sounds... things change.

        I guess Alexa is stuck in 2007...

        This is the only part of the post worth reading... only because it's ONE valid way to do things, but it's hardly the only way.

        I've seen data on literally billions of messages that have been sent through our services through the years, and can tell you, based on our data... that you're better off emailing new subscribers DAILY for at least the first few weeks...

        And based on my own personal testing data, which is based on hundreds of millions of emails sent over the course of the past 13+ years... you'd better make a pitch in that first email, or your leaving money on the table...

      Thanks for you opinions, I am still sticking with ListWire and I am very optimistic that your service will turn out well after all, Gary. So far I tested ListWire and its seems pretty good. For whatever reason I am unhappy with ListWire then and only then will I turn to other autoresponders

      Thanks once again!
