A Powerful Way to Put Your Home Business on Auto-Pilot

Aug 17, 2007
Without automation in my online home business I would not be making a full-time income from home. That is a fact!

Automation is important to all businesses. The less time we have to spend doing small tasks, the more time we have to make money - or we could spend that time doing something besides working. Putting an online business on auto pilot isn't difficult at all - as you will find out!

I don't have any employees and there simply would not be enough hours in the day to do all I need to do on a daily basis to make a success of my business.

There are many ways to automate your home business from promotions and marketing, right down to the ordering process and delivery of your product. If you are selling a digital product then you barely need to have a hand at all other than to cash your monthly check.

One step in the process of automation are online auto-responders. I have been using an auto-responder in one form or another from my earliest days in internet marketing and now run numerous auto-response accounts.

Can you imagine how laborious it would be to have to send out mailings manually to all your customers and prospects? Remembering to do this alone would be a somewhat impossible task - that is where an auto-responder comes in!

Auto-responders are a great way to close the sale after someone visits your site. If you do not have an email capture form on your website then you are neglecting one of the basic principles of Internet marketing. If a prospect visits your site and leaves, mosts time they are gone forever. However, if you give them the opportunity to leave their email address then you can contact them as many times as you like(until they unsubscribe) in order to convert them into a return visitor and eventually a customer.

Once added to your email list you can have your auto-responder send them out occasional emails, the interval set by you, for days, months and even years.

It is important that you send your subscribers useful info or they won't remain subscribed for long BUT don't forget to leave a link to your website and your recommended products.

You can also keep in touch with your subscriber through the broadcast function in most autoresponders.

Auto-responders are also really effective to send out free reports, ie. a 7 Day report can be set to go out every day for a week. Again the main jist is to encourage your visitors to leave their email address.

You can see the power in automating this task across many markets. Without mutiple auto-responders set to go out on auto-pilot you can forget about it.
