Commercial Emailing Systems
A crucial part of running ANY online business is the need for a commercial emailing system. Often these are mistakenly called Autoresponders. It’s an old name left over from the 90’s.
A commercial emailing system is a must have tool for growing an emailing list and remaining in touch with your subscribers and prospects. On your lead capture page, landing page, website or blog you place some special code on your page where you want the capture form to appear. This code is provided by the emailing company you choose to go with.
Of course you can easily have an outsourced web developer do all the work for you. Your focus needs to remain on growing your business not on becoming a web developer.
When the form is activated, it will collect the prospects contact information, for example, name, email and telephone. This information will go into your list you made in your commercial emailing account.
This is the cool part: now you can have email messages automatically sent to your prospects without you even being awake. Also you can send broadcast email messages to all your subscribers any time you want.
