How To Keep Your Customers 'In The Loop'' By Automating Your Sales Process

May 10, 2008
In this day and age everything can be automated, and that means that you are able to do more business. However, it's very important, and even more so when you are on the internet, to keep your customers in the loop. To do this, all you need to do is keep your sales process automated so that they always know what's going on.

This is something that is easy to do, and they even make software that you can buy to help you do this. By keeping your customers in the loop, they will feel better and know that you have not forgotten about them. So what does keeping your customers in the loop really mean? To have things automated for your sales process, there are a few different things that this can mean.

However, usually it's talking about automatic emails that can get sent to your customers. Usually when you buy something online, the site asks for your email address so that it can send you email. One good thing about giving out your email address is that you get the status about your order so that you know all the time where everything is and what is going on.

There are a few different emails that usually get sent out to you. The first one is usually just telling you that they got your order, and your credit or debit card has been billed. After that you will normally get an email when their product has been shipped to you. At this time they normally give you a tracking number so you can track your package online, and know where it is all the time. Now you never have to wonder where your packages are.

The overall best thing about this is the fact that not only can your customers keep up with everything, but you can too. Knowing that your customer is happy will allow you to worry about other business related things and spend less time having to answer the same questions all the time. Keeping your sales process automated is efficient and easy to do.

This is where a good autoresponder takes all his sense. Autoresponders are simply email addresses that automatically answer requests with a message that you create. For example, if you have a e-commerce store selling food supplements, you could put an autoresponder on your web site saying, "How to loose weight with food protein supplement'' and ask for your visitor's email address so that you can e-mail them the information right away.

You can find autoresponders all over the internet but I prefer to use Aweber. Whatever autoresponder you choose make sure you have no size limit, quick response and the ability to send unlimited follow- up messages. Free autoresponders are also a good option but have a big disadvantage: They're free because other marketers pay to have their advertisement added to each message you send out.

Automating your sales process is a sure way to fire up your sales and keep your customers happy.
