WF Friends,

I'm looking for some resources on Autoresponder chains and suggestions. I don't have a ton of experience setting one up although am interested for a project. Does anyone have any suggested resources from any email marketing gurus?

    I find the best way is to get yourself on the lists of the big name guru's and then watch your mail box. They will send you plenty to study!

    Paul gives a great tip above. Watch what the best are already doing and copy that method.

    If you are looking for resources, there are tons of articles and such out there. Try looking for email drip campaign tips as well to get a greater variety of tips and tricks. I always say hit them hard at first and then back down. Here is my best practices:

    First 6 days, hit them every day with an email, but make it different and stress a different point each day. They may overlook something that you offer, and not every person will be looking for the same thing. Highlight all your services but over the 6 day period.

    After the 6 days, send an email a week later, then 2 weeks, then every month to just tell them that you are still alive. Suggestive branding is a good term to use here. Hope that helps.

      Thanks Bryan killer information. Also changing my search term to "Drip Marketing" brought up lots of other articles on exactly what I was looking for.

      Thanks for the help from you both.

      The idea's probably a good one, regarding the general principles ... but don't forget, too, that one thing "the best" are doing all the time is split-testing, and that an individual message, or group of messages, you receive may well be the one that's abandoned a few weeks later because it didn't perform well.

      When you "watch an expert", you don't necessarily see what they do: you sometimes see only a small part of it, and it may not always even be a representative part.

      There are also some more general thoughts here.

        Thanks for the reference on that link, lots of great information I'm sinking my teeth into now. I hadn't considered split testing, I A/B test all the time on my sites, but am just now making a foray into the email marketing world, should definitely carry my knowledge over there as well.

        Thanks again.
