If you want to be successful online, you have to have an email list and a good autoresponder to communicate with your list.
During week three of the program, I started building a mailing list.
It is very important to get a good autoresponder from the start, one that is reliable and will accommodate your business as it grows. For this reason, I went with AWeber and signed up for a 30-day fully functional free trial.
With John’s step-by-step instructions I created my first list in AWeber. I also set up a confirmation message and a follow-up email that subscribers to my list will receive. Then I created the sign-up form on my blog (the one you see to the right of this post).
A good tip for when you write an email message is to shorten the number of characters you use per line so that it reads easier on a computer screen and displays better on a cell phone.
You can use a free online tool for this which was developed by John Thornhill and Dave Nicholson – just go to www.word-wrap.net, type, wrap your text and copy to your email.
