You have to be very careful when approaching Potential Clients, especially when using your autoresponder to sell a service or product.
There are not many individuals interested in a hard sell; successful entrepreneurs have known this for years. People go online to seek more information regarding to a certain product.
Autoresponders make getting your message out to potential clients possible and simple. Without a responder online, you would not be able to do this.
All too often, entrepreneurs mistakenly slam their potential clients with hard sales pitches with their first autoresponder message. This does not work.
You must build interest slowly. Begin with an informative message, one that educates your readers on something about the topic that concerns your service or product.
The first message should focus on solving a problem with the use of your service or product and only a small hint of the solution.
Build from there, moving up into how problems are solvable with the service or product. With the next message, tell about the benefits of using the product, while providing more actual information with every message. The sales pitch comes with the final message, not the first.
Just make sure you are giving the information concerning the topic to the client free. This builds excitement and keeps them interested in what you are telling them.
Marketing in this way is an art, although it does take time to master. Use examples from messages you have received from other entrepreneurs.
Organize a swap file to keep those messages. You can modify some of the better sales copy for your autoresponder, however do be mindful of the copyright laws and giving due credit. Sending out an exact copy of a sales message that belongs to another is not good business.
Do not begin with a hard sale. Slowly build the interest of your potential clients. Keep building on the problem situation and how your service or product fills the need or solves the problem.
When you do this right, by the time your potential clients read the last series of messages, you have accomplished two things. First, you have proved yourself knowledgeable in the subject area. Secondly, your readers naturally like to learn more about your product or services either by contacting yourself or making the purchase as a result. Ultimately, by creating your customers’ interest towards your product and services through automated email messages, you will win customers over time.
