Setting Up Your Auto-Responder (Emailing System)

PRO TIP: 2X your listening speed on all videos

With so many emailing systems out there, it's easy to get overwhelmed.

If you have one you love, go ahead and use it.

If you don't have one, we recommend Aweber.

We love them because their customer service is fantastic and you can literally pick up the phone and call them and they will fix whatever you need help with.

Additionally, in the world of email, every company is given a senders score. The higher your company's score the more likely it is that your email will get into your recipient's inbox and not their spam.  Emailing companies that offer a free service typically have a low senders score because the users are breaking the universal laws of emailing and that gives the company a lower score.

If you choose our recommendation for your emailing system, you'll want to follow these directions.

1. Go HERE to set up your Aweber account - choose the pro plan so that you can access features you're going to need in your emailing system.

2. Go HERE to learn how to get started and become familiar with your emailing system.

3. Create your first campaign by Clicking Here and following these directions.

Go ahead.. write a few sentences to get familiar with how this works.

PRO TIP: Don't use a template

Keep the font at about 18

Always send yourself a test message

Check your email to see how it looks. the font can get wonky sometimes, so just confirm it's what you want.

I know this is just a test, but don't forget to PROOFREAD it!

Go ahead and play around getting familiar with the basic flow... we will dive more deeply into what should be included in your emails in the upcoming modules.

Set up your emailing system.

PS -

  1. In order to have access and the ability to turn the double opt-in off, you have to upgrade to the Pro Plan. Otherwise, if you don't turn off the double opt-in, everyone that receives your email will have to click a button in your email saying that they want to receive emails from you. See next lesson on how to do this.
  2. You don't have to start out with a personalized email address, but eventually, for higher levels of deliverability, you're going to want to have one. Go Daddy is a great resource to get one from if you don't already have one.
