Email Marketing Magic! PART ONE
When I learned the mechanics of automated email marketing I was so excited! It worked like magic!
I had finally figured out how to put a sign-up form on my website. I was so proud of the words “Sign up for my free newsletter!”
It was a big deal for me because for the first time ever, part of my business was now set on auto-pilot.
I had a system.
I had 3 email messages set-up that were all written from the heart – my welcome email, and 2 others. Each one was scheduled to send to my new subscribers automatically as my very own newsletter!
I was so thrilled that I kept signing up on my own form just to see if it really worked :)
It worked perfectly.
If you haven’t tried email automation yet, here’s what I recommend. I’ve used several email marketing systems and I can recommend all of them:
Currently I’m using iContact so let’s walk through the basics of most systems using iContact as the example. The basic steps of publishing your newsletter to subscribers include creating:
- a subscriber list
- a sign-up form
- a thank you page
- a welcome email
- and a newsletter template
There is a 30 day free trial with iContact so let’s do this!
To sign-up for your free trial – click here.
After you are logged in, there are a number of important things to set-up inside iContact to begin creating the magic of automation.
Login to iContact and click “Contacts,” then click “Create a list”
Next, give your new list a name and description. Also be sure to click the notification box.
Now click save!
Congratulations! You have completed PART ONE! The magic of automation is just getting started… Stay tuned for PART TWO, “Creating a Welcome Message Inside iContact!”
