Learn How To Use Autoresponders Responsibly
In today’s world of unsolicited email and spam laws, it is extremely important that you learn to use your autoresponder responsibly. Autoresponders make our lives much simpler, and they are very powerful marketing tools, but if they are used in a way that they
are not intended, they can quickly turn your life into a nightmare!
First, never add people to your autoresponder mailing list that should not be there. If they have requested information from you, they should automatically be added, and you should have a ‘double opt-in’ method in place to make them confirm that they have requested the information. This serves to protect you and them.
Each autoresponder message should include a link that the recipient can click that will automatically remove them from the mailing list. Without this link, you will be breaking the spam laws, and you risk having your website, your ISP service, your email, and your autoresponders shut down!
We all want to build a list of a million people, but you must do so responsibly, and it does take time. Don’t get in a hurry and break all the rules and laws in an attempt to build a large list. This will only result in losing your list altogether!

Invoicing with Autoresponders
If you have recurring invoices that you send out, you can easily automate this process with
autoresponders. Many business owners find that they spend a good portion the day
sending out invoices, or trying to collect on unpaid invoices! This can easily eat into the time that you could be spending generating new business.
If the amounts invoiced are the same each month, and due on the same day each week or month, you can easily automate the invoicing process with the use of an autoresponder. Many shopping carts that have autoresponders built in work well for this. Others may take a little time to set up, but in the end, they will save a great deal of time overall.
Get extra usage out of the automated invoicing process by adding small messages to the invoices that alert these clients to new products or services that you offer. Think about your phone bill – doesn’t your phone company send out additional sales material with each bill? There is no reason you shouldn’t use this same marketing technique with your autoresponder invoices!
