Auto responders go by a few different names like triggered emails and drip campaigns, but essentially they are an automated email, or sequence of emails sent when a subscriber meets a condition you set.
Here are four examples of auto responders
- A user subscribes and receives a series of tips, spread across a number of days or weeks. See “Grammar to Go” example below.
- A customer is getting married. They subscribe on your website and enter their wedding date. They receive 10 weekly tips and things to do in the countdown to the big day.
- A house owner wants to prepare their house for sale in order to get the best price. They subscribe on an estate agent’s website and receive weekly tips on what changes they should make.
- A business wants to add a personal touch by sending an email birthday card to clients every year, along with a special offer. See “Monty’s” example below.
OK, but why set up auto responders?
The key benefits of auto responders are customer acquisition and retention. And once set up they work automatically. Like a silent salesman.
By providing tips and advice like the examples above, you are adding value for clients and at the same time building trust and credibility by sharing knowledge and expertise.
