Article Writing And Autoresponders

Writing online

Online writing and autoresponders can be а great combination. One thing а lot of people like to do with their autoresponders is distribute their own articles.

If that’s something you have in mind when you try to make money writing, here are four important issues you must keep in mind if you want to have success writing online.

4 Things ALL Articles Must Have

Keywords and Keyword Phrases

When you pick topics to write about it’s important to have an article that has keywords that are related to your site. For example, if you have an ecology-related site, you should have articles about ecology and stuff. There are а lot of tools on the internet that help writers find keywords and key phrases. A free and popular one is titled Keywords Planner, which is available on Google’s Adwords website.

Keyword Density

People used to think keywords should be repeated many times within an article. This is called ‘keyword density.’ Nowadays, people are told to beep keyword density low. Maybe only 5% or less. In other words, mention your keywords only once or twice in each article.

Good Article Content

Here’s one of the best content writing tips: if your article is not interesting no one will read it no matter how technically correct it is. Boring and uninspired articles don’t cut it. As you write your article ask yourself, would you read your own article?

Linking Articles

DON’T forget to place links in your article, maybe including links to your own sites. If people like what they read, they will most likely click on the links directing them wherever you want them to go.



By the way, if you’re not а good writer, or if you’d rather use your energy doing other things, instead of doing the work of writing yourself you might use an article writing service. There is an advertisement for such а service on the right-side of this website. Another alternative is article writing software. Just make sure the article you receive from the service or software meets the criteria enumerated above in the rest of this article.

Online Marketing Blog

5 Reasons to have an online marketing blog

Online advertising has tapped into the blog’s potential. Here are 5 reasons why you should use blog marketing online. Your internet marketing blog is good because:

1.Blogging is simple. A blog is like having а virtual piece of paper. You just write your ideas, experiences, new products, and hope that your reader to try your product.

2. Blogging is authentic. In this day and age where advertising saturate our lives, we question the credibility of promoters’ claims. However, in blogs, real people share their real-life experiences, unscathed by paid advertising. Reading blogs about first-hand product use is like talking to people about their first-hand experience. You definitely want to buy а tried and tested product.

3. Blogging is free. Because blogging is yet to be proven as а mainstream online advertising media, most sites see it as something to augment current marketing tools and thus offer it for free. Any opportunity for free webtime is definitely а bonus especially to businesses that are starting up. Needless to say, paid blog pages can generate more income for your seriously growing business.

4. Blogging builds credibility. As you get more and more into writing your experiences on а particular product or industry, your readers come to realize that they can depend on your posts for their own information needs. As such, you become an expert on it; as а consequence, more readers visit your site and more bloggers link to your blogs. As companies and professional organizations notice the growth of your readership base, they may soon get in touch with you for advertising on your blog page, or make you an affiliate, which pays for every referral generated from your blog site.

5. Blogging builds your market.



What is а marketing strategy?

Here are internet marketing strategy -

-By using your e-mail (and an autoresponder). Let your readers explore your site by using а short e-mail message as teaser to your blog site. Or use your e-mail signature to give а link to the site.

-By using subscription. Keep some exclusive information just for subscribers. Use social campaigns.

-By surveying your readers. Ask readers to give feedback on а post, an ad link, or а trial. It is like interviewing your readers without the intrusion of а face-to-face interview.

Give your business а boost by effectively using blogging as an Internet marketing tool.

Affiliate Marketing, Autoresponders And Email Newsletters

Autoresponders And Customer Service

Customer Service using Autoresponders

In the offline world most of us live in most of the time customer service is done on а one-on-one basis with individual customers. But that model simply will not work on the internet. This is where an autoresponder comes in.

Autoresponder can make emailing marketing customer service quite simple. Here’s an obvious example: when an order is place, the autoresponder sends а sales receipt, instructions on accessing the product, some basic information about the product and а ‘thank you’ email.

All these items can be sent regardless of whether the seller is online, offline, awake, asleep, or on vacation in а tropical paradise.

And customer service doesn’t have to end at the moment of the sale. Let’s say the customer doesn’t understand something about their purchase, such as how to open а pdf file which the seller sent as part of the purchase. Maybe the customer struggles for а day or so until the customer finally gives up. Then the customer sends а complaint letter to the seller. Here’s where а proper virtual customer service jobs sequence can come to the rescue.



How to improve customer service

If the seller has set up а good autoresponder sequence, improving customer service is easy. The customer’s complaint can be answered with the appropriate answers, all set up beforehand in the right order. No human need be present to sooth the ruffled customer. Everything can be done by computer wherever the real, live seller might be.

If the seller thinks through the ordering process from the point of view of potential customers, this customer service process could be а snap. Get an email service provider sequence set up to address typical problems, and you will find that customers are more satisfied with your products, and extremely satisfied with your customer service – all because your autoresponders is on the job!

Email Subject Line Tip

Subject line

What is an email subject line?

Let’s say you want to send an ordinary email to а friend. You go to your email program, open а new message form, type in or click the email address of the destination, then type in а subject line. For example, you might type in ‘Hi’ if you are writing а friend, or ‘What’s up’ or ‘See you for lunch’ or something like that. When you complete the email and send it, your friend will see your name or email address and the subject line. This is not rocket science.



Where subject lines become problems is when you send а lot of messages to strangers (potential business customers, you hopw) using your autoresponder. Unlike your friend when you send an ordinary email. the strangers to whom you send emails using your autoresponder probably do not respond to your name or email address. If they respond to anything, they probably respond to the subject lines of your messages. Like ‘Open this email for а great surprise’ or ‘Free gift for you’ or ‘Here is the latest money-making program’ or stuff like that.

What is the best subject line?

Some subject lines work better than others. For example, the word ‘Free’ works а lot of times. On the other hand, when а stranger sends me an email offering something ‘Free’ in the subject line I tend not to open the email. Over the years, having opened many emails I have learned that there is no such thing as а free lunch, so I rarely open emails from strangers that offer free stuff.

If you ask, What is the best subject line? I would have to say, Sorry, there is no one answer. Sometimes one style works, some times it doesn’t. I have seen many ‘gurus’ talk about the kind of opening line which works best for them. That is, they will send long emails explaining why they think а certain kind of opening line works best. But chances are the style of address they advocate is often not the style of address they just used for the email they send which contains their lesson.

The bottom line

Be very, very skeptical of anyone who claims they have found а one best opening line style for autoresponder messages. There is no guarantee that what worked yesterday will work again tomorrow. And what will work tomorrow will work the day after tomorrow.

Affiliate Marketing, Autoresponders And Email Newsletters

Email newsletters

Best affiliate marketing programs

Affiliate marketing is а money-sharing arrangement  between the product maker, also known as the affiliate merchant, and the affiliate marketer. The marketer can be anyone  willing to promote the sale of product. Promotion can be done by various forms of advertising, including email newsletters.

Many people think of unsolicited spam emails with advertisements which make outrageous claims when they think of email commerce. This negative view of email marketing certainly exists. But savvy Internet marketers who understand how to market steer clear of spam. The successful ones enjoy an advantage over the competition by making their e-newsletters effective.



An e-newsletter (the older way of writing the term ‘email newsletter’) is similar to the kind of printed newsletters distributed via snail mail. The most significant difference is that traditional newsletters are usually mailed tor distributed in person.

Affiliate marketing websites

One great feature which makes emailed electronic newsletter better than their dead tree cousins is the email newsletters usually have links built into their affiliate marketing websites. A link is an electronic connection which the reader can click which then sends the reader to another page. This other page might have an order form. Once the order form is filled out, а fulfillment center can send the desired, ordered object, and а charge can be made to the buyer’s credit card or bank account.

Affiliate sites

The contents of an e-newsletter may vary somewhat drastically depending on the business the e-newsletter is promoting, the purpose of the e-newsletter and even the personal preferences of the business owner of the affiliate sites.  This may include full length feature articles which provide information for the readers. It may also include shorter pieces which may offer tips, review products or offer advice to the reader. The key to providing high quality content in these e-newsletters is to have them written by а capable writer who is knowledgeable about the subject matter.

Four Essentials For Building Your Optin List

Opt in list building

Here are four essential things to consider for opt in list building:

1) Put up а good web form in your site! Place the form near your strongest appeal, immediately following the end of your content or prominently close to your appeal. Make extra efforts to make а good impression.

A good form which promotes subscribing to your optin list is not hard to create. All it takes is а simple statement in as few words as possible about getting more information, updates, newsletters, etc.

2) Make your homepage very, very appealing. Pack it with as much useful information as possible.

Keep it simple, stupid

Here’s а simple trick: Keep the sentences as short as possible. Long sentences with many complicated clauses may be good for college term papers. Short, punchy sentences are good for selling things.

In fact, whole, complete, grammatically correct sentences are not always necessary. Part, incomplete sentences are good too.

3) Provide good service and products. Make sure what you sell actually works!

Word of mouth

Here’s а basic rule of salesmanship: return customers are а salesman’s dream! They are very likely to bring in even more business. Even then and now satisfied customers will recommend your business to other people. This kind of word of mouth recommendations bring in more business than any expensive advertisement.



4) Keep your list clean and private. One of the worst things you can do is to lose the trust of your customers by using their addresses to spam them. If you get spam emails sent to your trusted list members you will suffer massive unsubscribing. It’s truly not worth it.

A good reputation will encourage more traffic and subscribers, as well as strengthen your customers’ loyalty.

It is better to build your own email list than to buy email lists or an email database from dubious sources.

Email blast courtesy

Email courtesy rules

Courtesy counts

Watch your email blasts. Whenever you create а message for your autoresponder, especially when you use an  email blast service, you should always be aware of the rules of courtesy. Your customers and visitors certainly will be, even if you are not. Your autoresponder email blasts are meant to help your company grow and help you spread information about your services, products, and company. If your messages are rude or crude you will turn people off. Eventually people will either turn off your email marketing service or walk away if you displease them.

You can run but you can’t hide

There are many innovative ways to get your message heard. Most people on the internet nowadays know when they are receiving а canned autoresponder message. Put it this way: people can easily tell the difference between а message written by а friend versus а commercial mass mail email written by а hungry marketer. If you don’t communicate well by using proper email etiquette they will know it. You can always edit your messages; nevertheless, most email messages contain а unique signature and address which is easily associated with autoresponders.

Opt-in Email Lists – What Are They?

Build A List Of Eager Subscribers

When it comes to opt-in email lists ‘Opt-in email lists’ are one of the most valuable assets а business can have.

A good business provides great products or services, which generates satisfaction among customers. When а customer gets satisfied they are likely to become а return customer, which is great for the bottom line. Better yet, they might generate word of mouth” – they might recommend you to other people. That means а better bottom line.

As more traffic comes to your site, you can suggest subscribing to your email marketing lists or opt-in lists. This means the visitors agree to be sent promotional material, such as newsletters, catalogs and such. These promotional items are sent by e-mail at different times. You can also call it а “buy email list” or an “email addresses list” or an “email marketing list.”

‘Opt-in’ means the customers take an action to join the marketing lists. The action is usually as simple as clicking on some words or а picture. The words might be as simple as “click here” or as complicated as “I want to receive information about products and services from this website.”

Such an opt in email list has some cost to use and maintain, but it’s almost always lower cost than other communication media like classified advertising.

Email is usually free when it’s done on а one-to-one basis. It costs something to do bulk emailing, but usually not а lot.

When you have an opt-in subscribers list, you are pretty sure that what you are sending is received, viewed and read. After all, the people who receive your email signed up to get it.

Relationship Marketing – Make Your Customers Feel Special

Relationship marketing

Relationship marketing has many meanings. In this article we will explore the idea of marketing to а specialized group of very active customers. If you create an elite group of loyal customers, they will become а sales army for your business and become your marketing team which works for free without even knowing they are doing so.

This is, frankly, one of the best marketing strategies.

What is а marketing plan?

This approach has also been called dynamic marketing, meaning selling through а relationship model. This way of selling has а higher per sale total as well as а much higher incidence of repeat sales than cold call selling. And it is far less frustrating.

Of course, publishing this article on this website assumes that email is the backbone of your sales program. But email blasts are not enough. So the migration to dynamic selling and away from cold call and mass marketing email techniques is а natural evolution.

Best customer relationship management

One way to give your customers the feel of being part of your growing organization is to build а specialized membership area of your website that customers must make an extra effort to become part of. In fact, many online retailers actually charge а small fee to be part of this membership site. That is effective because the fee gives your members the sensation of being part of а closed society.

Effective promotion marketing

Your customers who choose to become part of the membership area should get some special privileges and rewards for their elevated status. You might create а discount card which is good for а special store for elite customers only. Done right, this card feeds the desire to spend money in this online store because these customers think they are getting something very special. In actuality, all you are doing is exchanging а small part of your mark-up in hopes of spurring more sales from these special customers.

Another benefit of creating а special membership area is that these people feel as if they are part of а team. And, in fact, you actually can deal with them more or less as part of а real team.

For instance, you can ask them to make suggestions about future products or services. In other words you can “pick the brains” of your special members to insure the products or services you offer are things real people actually want and need.

These elite members always have а greater sense of brand loyalty. Because they are so special make it а point to make the members-only site look elegant and luxurious. And don’t take your eye off of the goal of using the membership area for recruitment of new customers through referrals. A few gift memberships can go а long way toward accomplishing those goals.
