Your Autoresponder – The Bread and Butter of Email Marketing

Your opt-in page is set up, great!  Now you will be able to start collecting email addresses to provide your subscribers with valuable information over time.

This is where your autoresponder comes into play..


This software allows you to set up an email sequence that will automatically be sent to your subscribers on specified days and times.


First of all if you have not set up your Leadpages account yet, do so now.


You can refer back to the email where I explained how to get your Leadpages account here.



I recommend an autoresponder software called GetResponse, for a few reasons.


Email Deliverability: 

GetReponse takes great care of their servers and they keep spam marketers out.  This allows emails from this software to be more likely to end up in the recipients inbox instead of their spam folder.




They offer much cheaper options than most other autoresponders out there, along with a 30 day trial.  This speaks for itself, try it for 30 days and simply cancel if you need.  This allows you to get a feel for how it works and what you can do with it.


Features and Functions:


Split testing is a necessary function for any marketer, and GetResponse provides an easy to navigate platform to help split test your email autoresponder sequence.


 To start all you need is the smallest plan, which you can slowly bump up as your list grows.


You will also need to activate your account through your email after your initial sign up.


Get your 30 day trial now with GetResponse and take a look around.


Keep an eye out for my next article, where I will show you step-by-step (with pictures) how to integrate GetResponse with your Leadpage and start growing your email list.

“Chase the vision, not the money.  The money will end up following you”


Although it does boil down to money, the freedom of choice is what we truly desire.

Hi there,

My name is Tim Roberts… and in this report I want to walk you through the process of starting your digital marketing career from anywhere with a laptop and an internet connection.

Now, this report is just a general overview of the whole process and there are many other details and concepts to be understood which is why I invite you to click here to join the largest affiliate marketing community and training website on the internet.  It is 100% free to join!


First, allow me to introduce myself:

I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and have the freedom to live life on my terms.  For years I have searched for business opportunities and started multiple businesses that have ultimately failed.  I feared that I would be stuck working for someone else for the rest of my life, showing up on their terms, taking time off when they approved, and ultimately busting my ass to make someone else rich for little pay.

I thought about this constantly, to the point where I was making myself sick and depressed, which negatively affected my attitude on life and the relationships I had.  While money isn’t everything, I knew that it would solve 95% of my problems as they all seemed to revolve around the lack of money one way or another.

I finally decided that enough was enough, and I could not make any more excuses.  I made a promise to myself that I would not stop until I could be free to live on my own terms, to work when I want, to travel where I want, and to ultimately determine my own income that allowed me to do all of the above.

I am sure you can relate, so let’s get into the content…


Step 1:

The first thing you need to do is pick a product to promote to your target audience.  Many marketers debate whether you should start in a niche that you enjoy and are familiar with or one that is hot selling.

I believe that it is best to first start with a niche that you have knowledge about.  This way you can provide value to your customers because you know what you are talking about.

You can literally start with anything, as long as you target an audience that has a need for your product.

Here is an example of what some people are doing with affiliate networks.  (This obviously is not a guarantee, but shows what is possible.  People are making anywhere from an extra $50 per day all the way up to 4 and even 5 figures per day.

Affiliate networks make it easy to start making money even if you do not have your own product to promote.  These networks, such as Clickbank and JVZoo, have products listed that were created by other sellers.

By promoting these products, you can earn LARGE COMMISIONS.  See the example below in the weight loss niche, it is for a yoga product.


As you can see, this product pays a hefty commission every time someone purchases through your affiliate link.

Once you click “Promote” you can copy and paste your link anywhere.

This unique link allows the seller to know that the sale came from you.


Step 2:

Next, we create a sales funnel that will allow us to promote and sell the product.  All you need to do is set it up once.

See below the concept of the sales funnel (again, I strongly recommend that you click here for more details on the workings of the funnel, otherwise you may miss some of the necessary components for this to work properly)

Makeup of the Sales Funnel:

Ad –  This is what we use to capture the audience’s attention.  This can be in the form of a solo ad, facebook ad, twitter post, etc. (More to come on that later)


Squeeze Page – Also known as the landing page.  This is a basic web page used to obtain the contact info of whoever clicked on the ad.

Usually gives a free offer or other incentive for the person to enter their email address.

As an example, the squeeze page might say…

One thing to keep in mind is to only use a headline that the offer you are promoting can fulfill.  Lying in your marketing will hurt you in the long run.

If someone clicks your ad, lands on your squeeze page, and wants the result that you are offering they will more than likely enter their email.

After submitting their email address, the person will then be sent to your offer so that they have a chance to buy.

As seen in the diagram above, the arrow pointing down from the squeeze page links to your autoresponder.  This is where the person’s contact information will be stored.


Autoresponder –  The autoresponder is what allows you to continually follow up with your prospective customers.  It is a database that stores the email addresses that we obtain and sends them pre-designed emails over time that include valuable content and other offers.

The autoresponder is extremely crucial because as you know most people do not buy the first time they are offered a product.  Having the ability to follow up with someone multiple times allows us to more opportunities to sell the offer and answer any questions/concerns they may have about the product.


A good way to do this is to create emails that contain:

  • More information about the product (content)
  • Testimonials from users
  • Answers to common questions
  • Bonus incentives or other free material
  • Etc


We only need to set up the email cycle ONCE, and it will send our emails out according to the dates, times, etc that we specify on autopilot.

All of those emails ultimately are linking back to the offer we intend to promote (or other offers that may be better suitable) so that the recipient has another chance to purchase…

…and when they do, we get paid a commission!!


When you set this up it allows you to make money any time of day (and while you sleep) and from anywhere in the world.

You can then scale your business by expanding your reach with ads, optimizing your landing page, refining follow up emails, and finding better offers or creating your own offer that will help people achieve a desired goal.

Once you have money steadily rolling in, you can expand and repeat the process in other niches or for other products.

I really hope that this report has given you a more clear understanding of how simple it is to start making money online.  You can literally determine your own income once you understand the concepts and workings behind this formula.  The sky is the limit.
