List Building | Autoresponder Series & Products

Thank You

After you’ve created a great list building squeeze page, your next task is to create an awesome autoresponder series. That’s how you’ll make money! You may wonder why and how, but no problem. I’m going to show you.

Your first message should always be a welcome message:

“Thank you for joining my mailing list [or for downloading my free report or my free ebook or whatever]. You can find course preparation materials at…” Or something like that. Then, offer them a product. You can get one from or another affiliate site.

But there are two caveats that go with that:

First, be sure that the product you offer fits in with your niche. For instance, if you’re list building around golf, don’t try to sell people an item about Internet Marketing. They probably have no interest in Internet Marketing! By doing something like that, you’re probably alienating people, number one, and number two, you’re showing them that you don’t have any idea about what you’re trying to do. They’ll stop trusting you right from the start.

The second thing about offering products from Clickbank or from is that you have to buy and try the product you offer. That’s it. There’s no other way to go about doing this. You have to try the product. If it’s good and useful to your list, they’ll appreciate it. If it’s something bad, you’ll lose them forever. Besides that, it’s just not ethical.

If you’re serious about list building this is one thing I can’t stress enough. Try your product. Shell out the cash and make sure it’s good. If it isn’t, ask for a refund. You can do that, even if one isn’t offered. On the plus side, you’ll have a very useful product that you’ll be glad you got because you can use it yourself. What happens is that it ends up paying for itself many times over.

And, if you’re excited about a product, your list building machine just got more powerful! It’s easy to sell products you believe in it. Always be list building around ideas and products that excite you. Otherwise, you’re probably wasting your time.

This first product should probably be the same one that you used as your thank you offer when people opted in to your list. At least it should be. This gives them two chances. Call it your “head start” product.

For instance, if your list building niche is in golf, offer them a book of tips on how to improve their golf swing. Or, if you’re list building around quilting, you might offer needles or some physical product that makes quilting easier. Whatever the product is, it has to fit.

For your second, third, and fourth messages, provide a few tips or a couple of paragraphs of information. You should have at least 4 messages in your autoresponder series, but you can have thousands–as many as you want.

At the end of each message, be sure to offer another product. That means you need to buy at least four products to pass along. This is monetizing your list–the way you make money from list building. Only offer people quality, interesting, and useful products and they’ll follow you forever.
