What’s An Autoresponder?

Autoresponders are messages set to go out automatically. They help you automate campaigns and manage one-to-one communication with your recipients. They can be sent in a sequence or at intervals, starting from the day a contact signs up to your list e.g. Day 0 (instant message), 3, 7, 14.

So, autoresponders are useful if you want to send an automatic message to contacts who join your list. When you set up an autoresponder cycle, messages will go out on a specific day of a contact’s subscription period.

What Autoresponder Should I Use?

Which autoresponder you choose to go with comes down to a few factors, firstly what’s your budget? 

If you have a small start-up budget then software like infusionsoft wouldn’t be an option but Aweber or MailChimp would be a good choice in this case as the startup cost is as little as $19 pm.

Do you plan on integrating your opt-ins into a CRM system?

If this is the plan going forward then infusionsoft is perfect for this and has tones more features which would scale with your company.

My Recommendation…

I would recommend looking at a few autoresponders and looking at the startup and future costs, remember that your email list will grow over time and so will the costs per month, it’s important to see what service works price wise for startup and future plans as some services may offer a free startup then charge a few hundred dollars/pounds once you have 2000+ emails for example.
