How to Create an Effective Email Autoresponder System

Your Autoresponder has to achieve the following tasks to be a benefit to your business instead of a time drain that many businesses struggle with.

  • Build trust with your email readers.
  • Hook your readers to consume more of your content.
  • Have your readers taking action on your website e.g.
    • Booking appointments.
    • Call your sales team.
    • Watching sales videos or reading sales pages.
  • Keep in touch with your email list so you spring to mind when they want to buy.
  • Do all the above on autopilot.

Let’s start with people.

The message from sales web pages when building leads to customers is…

You need to get in front of people many times before they buy your product or service.

The problem here is, many of those web pages have different numbers for the amount of times a person needs to see your content before they become a customer.

I like to take a basic approach and keep it simple.

You need to look at what basic approach best suits your business model e.g.

  • Sales Team – Your autoresponder has to pre-qualify leads, so that people interested in your product or service call your sales team when they are ready to buy.
  • Digital product or service with no sales people – Your autoresponder has to pre-qualify leads, then send them to your sales page to purchase.

There are two steps to your autoresponder e.g.

  1. Send a weekly tip with a call to action on week four, so that would look like:-
    • Week 1 send a tip.
    • Week 2 send a tip.
    • Week 3 send a tip.
    • Week 4 send a call to action)
  2. Have a mini-serious for email readers who show an interest in a particular week


Send a weekly tip with a call to action on week four

This is where most people stuff up, they email out promotion after promotion or a list of weekly blog tips.

Don’t be that person!

Let’s look at a better way.

  1. Write a blog that gives a valuable tip
  2. List some benefits in the email
  3. Leave a cliffhanger in the email e.g. Benefit 4. Click here to see the full blog…
  4. Tag the blog group to the email reader’s email address
  5. Kick off 3 day mini-email series

Let’s look at how this would work if you were a company that hired industrial jet washes

Have Your Autoresponder Deliver Laser Targeted Content With TAGS

Give each weekly email a tag e.g.

  • Email 1 Tip Week 1 = jw-paint-fence
  • Email 2 Tip Week 2 = jw-paint-decking
  • Email 3 Tip Week 3 = jw-paint-decking
  • Email 4 Tip Week 4 = jw-hire-offer

Example of how email week one could look…

Email Body:  Hey {auto-fill-first-name-from-list}

I have 4 ways to speed up painting your fence, leaving you to enjoy your day.

Autoresponder and Trigger Emails

In your autoresponder, you have an automation that detects the tag in this case “jw-paint-fence” has been added to the email readers email address and sends the email reader Day1, Day2 and Call to action mini series.

Which looks something like this…

What is an Email Mini Series?

The mini email series kicks in to give your email reader focused information based on the week you clicked on.

The reasoning behind the mini email series is…

Each weekly email tip is more of a hook so you can see where in their journey your email readers are at.

Once you know where your email readers are at, you can give more focused advice that can better help your email reader.

Many times your email reader may have overwhelm or procrastination, therefore you add a call to action on day three of your email mini series.

The call to action lets those readers on your email list that feel your offering can get them ahead of the game…

Gives them a jump start with a product or service you offer.
