An autoresponder is a tool that will revolutionize the way you communicate with your new and old customers.

Recently I posted about keeping blog content flowing to keep your customers engaged. If you missed that article you can read it here. As you read that article did you wonder how you are to manage the data base and communication with thousands of people?

Wonder no more. I will show you how an autoresponder makes it all come together.

What is an autoresponder? It is a system that allows you to automate communications with people who opt into your mailing list. Bear in mind that my leaning is towards blogging as your main marketing platform. There are four functions that an autoresponder enables you to do:

1. An Autoresponder Merges Your List Building With Your Business Building Platform
Mailing list

The biggest challenge every blogger faces is how to generate quality leads and build an email list of loyal customers. By integrating an autoresponder with your blog you can capture names and email addresses of people who visit your blog. Leaving their contact information means they are giving you permission to contact them..

An autoresponder enables you to integrate a capture form onto your blog. You must couple that capture form with a good quality, high value incentive for individuals to leave their names and email addresses.

2. An Autoresponder Allows You To Engage and Keep New Leads

As soon as an individual adds their name to your email list, your autoresponder should kick in. It should send them a welcome email and automatically deliver to them the offer that you promised them when they joined your mailing list. Engagement from a well written welcome email and a high value offer is likely to keep them on your list to eventually convert from prospects to customers.  Constant contact from you through the autoresponder is a sure way to do that. The system allows you to nurture new customers and create lifetime customers of the ones you already have.

3. Releases Time For You

The most effective way of utilizing your autoresponder is to create a series of automatic messages that a new registrant to your email list receives. Use both video and text communications for your follow up messages to be engaging. Videos with your face on them make the follow ups more personal. Once your autoresponder is set, you will not have to worry about sending individual welcomes to each person who signs up on your mailing list. That definitely releases a lot of time for you to attend to other aspects of your business.

By the way my friends at Getresponse provide autoresponder services and this being the holiday season they have some cool discounts if you would like to go ahead and get an autoresponder for your blog.

Be Attractive To Attract People To You and Your Network Marketing Business

Be Attractive To Attract People To You and Your Network Marketing Business

What attracts people to people? Could attraction be the missing factor in your quest to grow your network marketing business?

I remember a time when I used to order supplies and services for the laboratory that I worked for. There were particular company sales representatives I went to repeatedly for certain products or services. They were not the only ones who could offer the product or service but something about them attracted me to them. Some reps I even intentionally removed from my data base, showing that I did not intend to do business with them at all. There was no attraction at all!

The reality of life in attraction marketing is that:

·         people are attracted to people more than companies or products

·         people need to connect, and feel that they are getting value from you

·         people are real and they are attracted to controversy

Many believe that attraction results from visual or direct contact. That may be true but it’s not exclusive. Your blog can still achieve that same magic. Here are the characteristics of Attractiveness

1.       Tell a good back story:

More people than you think are interested in your story. People love stories. Tell them your story, do not think it’s not important. The reason why people watch as much TV as they do is because of the stories. To encourage struggling network marketers – tell them about how you struggled. Be specific about the things you went through, felt and how you overcame.  Share in your blog, capture pages, e-mail follow ups, facebook postings etc. Identify your tartget market and share with them relevant detail about your life. The about me page is a good spot for this in your blog. Send people to it through your autoresponder.

2.       Share your personal stories:

What happened to you last week, last month that is related to the topic? People get to know you a bit more and develop a relationship with you even before you have to pick up the phone to talk to them. What has Junior done that has lessons for you and your followers (target group). Keep a notepad and pen nearby always so that when something significant and/or interesting happens, you are ready to jot it down for further expansion later. At the end of the day, reflect on its incidents and note the interesting things and write about them. Create a warm market for yourself from among the strangers who visit your website.

3.       Talk about your character flows:

Even the best characters have weaknesses. Do not portray yourself as Mr/Ms. Perfect. Share some of your weaknesses so that people will identify with you. For example relating to network marketing tell them about your aversion to meeting new people and collecting phone numbers. Show them that if an imperfect person like you can and has succeeded so can they if they put their mind to it.

4.       Have an opinion and do not be afraid to say it

Being neutral and ever agreeable is boring. Criticize what you do not agree with. You might upset some people but that is good! Those who agree with you will follow you and together you will move forward and upwards. You will have already prequalified those likely to create friction later on anyway. Believe in something and stand for it. Share your beliefs even if no-one has prompted a discussion on the subject. Be the one to start the conversation. This helps you create endless content. Get into ongoing discussions and put your own spin to them as blog articles.

It is critical for a network marketer to be attractive. Look at what the leaders in the field are doing and emulate them. Over time you too will be a natural!
