AutoResponder? GetResponse? Email Marketing?
Did you know that it is actually possible to make a full time income online by having a simple one page website like this one…
or this one
or even this one
These aren’t complicated pages to make and in fact I made all of these using a software called Builderall.
However Builderall is not the focus of this post.
What is the focus of this post is what all these pages have in common.
They are all asking for an email address.
In fact I have feeling that many of the people who are reading this very post were brought here because they gave me their email address.
Some of you probably even recognize these pages because, well these are the very pages that got you to give me your email address in the first place.
Now I know what you might be thinking..
How the heck could one page websites like those earn me a full time income.
Well like the old saying goes, the money is in the list.
These pages allow me to build up an email list.
Do I need all three of these pages?
Heck no, I could get by just fine with just one but I do like to mix it up a bit.
Lets get straight to the point here, what I am talking about is Email Marketing.
These pages get people signed up to my email list.
The people on my list are then sent emails from my email autoresponder..
What the heck is an email autoresponder?
This is probabaly how I should have started this post out but I like everyone else on the internet need to hook you in.
Otherwise the short attention spans that the internet helped to create would cause you to leave.
So an email autoresponder is just a sequence of email marketing messages that gets sent to subscribers in the order and frequency that you decide.
How you send these emails is by using software, and the software that I happen to use to send these emails is
I absolutely love GetResponse and in my opinion is one of the best email autoresponder softwares available.
Those simple page examples above get people to give me their email addresses.
Once I get their email address I start to send them a series of emails.
In these emails I deliver valuable content much like this blog post, I also direct them to all kinds of different things from blog posts, YouTube videos etc.. but I can also put in Affiliate links, or send them to a blog post that has affiliate links.
I can send them to so many different things.
Email is probably one of the easiest and most efficient ways to build up an audience online.
Because once they subscribe I could send them stuff right away or I could also go months without sending a thing. However once I hit that send button guess what, I will instantly have the same audience size from the last time I sent something.
With blogs, social media or really anything else, if I was to go months without posting something most people would either not get it or have given up on coming back to my site for new content a long time ago.
However, once you capture their email address you can essentially pull them back to your website on demand. Just about everyone checks their email, and most people get some sort of notification on that little device they keep in their pocket that lets them know that they got an email. Everyone that I know turns those notifications off for Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc… but one of the few things that many people keep the notifications turned on for is email.
Alright, now that we got the benefits of email out of the way lets move on to GetResponse.
First GetResponse has a few more tricks up its sleeve then just sending automated emails for you.
You have two basic types of Emails, Newsletters and Autoresponders.
Autoresponders are those automatic emails that will start to send out in a certain order once a person signs up for your email list.
Newsletters are emails that you type up and send out on special occasions, Only people who are part of your email list at that moment in time will get it.
So if someone new joins your email list a month later they will not get your newsletter but they will get the same autoresponder series, provided you haven’t changed it up yet.
Why Get Response?
As You can see GetResponse has several different things it can do and I am going to go over a few of them but not all as I do not use all of them but in the future I plan on using more and more of what GetResponse has to offer.
So while my examples above were all made with Builderall, if you wanted to save even more money GetResponse does allow you to build landing pages and they will host them for you without any extra cost.
These are some nice looking landing pages as well, and with some creativity can be used to fit just about any offer that you have in mind.
See Examples Below….
This is probabaly one of my favorite functions of GetResponse. I have the ability to set different rules and have things automatically happen depending on my subscribers behavior.
So For Examples lets say I send out a great piece of information about Instagram, no trying to sell anything just pure helpful information.
I can have a rule setup that for anyone who clicks on a link in that email or even just opens that email, they will then get a new email the next day about a piece of software or a course on Instagram marketing. I know these people are into Instagram because they specifically opened that email and clicked on that information, so they are going to be more likely to buy something that helps them with Instagram than someone who doesn’t do those things.
So yes those people will get an extra email that no one else got but they are also more likely to open it and I have now sent them content that is more specific to them and it happened all automatically, all I did was initially set it up.
While this is not a function that I specifically use its great to know that it is available.
Drag & Drop Design
I think this is probably my favorite part, everything is built visually. If I want to do something its super easy to accomplish that. From Writing emails, setting up the automation triggers to designing the landing forms. Everything can be done visually.
This is probably one of my most favorite features. I can edit, compose and do just about everything straight from my iPhone.
Sure, I shouldn’t be doing this all the time but the fact that it is even an option is super awesome. Monitoring and doing things on the go is amazing.
My Favorite Part of GetResponse
They don’t take your credit card information during the free trial period. That should tell you a lot right then and their. They believe so much in their own product that they dont even try to trick you into paying for the product. I don’t know too many companies who will give you everything for free without any type of payment information just in case.
So I mean take advantage of that free trial period and start growing your email list today!

Is that the only way that I get people signed up to my email list, heck no but we can talk about that a bit later. For now…
