1. Set up an autoresponder quickly and easily
If you don't want to read a bunch of technical mumbo jumbo, then have no fear, this post isn't going to be all math equations and boring technical stuff. I'm going to show you how to do it in plain English so it's easy for anyone in any industry (not just ones that use a computer). I'm also going to explain the difference between scheduled vs on-demand emails so you can decide what works best for your business.
1. Setting up an autoresponder takes time and money . It's a good idea to know how much you're spending on one. If you're running your business solo, then you probably just pick a free plan but if your business is big enough, you can afford to spend $10-$20 a month on your autoresponder. That will pay for itself in less than 2 months!
2. There are many different autoresponders available. Here's my favorite: Constant Contact . It's a popular one and it has many different features that will make it easy for you to get everything you need. If you don't already have an autoresponder, then you should strongly consider looking at Constantly Contact.
3. Email is not a one-trick pony . You need to make sure you're sending emails in the right way so your readers open them and retain whatever information in the body of the email. If they don't open them, all the time you spent creating your amazing content will be wasted and no one will know about it!
Most people think that email marketing is only for hyper-niche industries like realtors but anyone can do it with today's tools and technology. You can send emails to anyone, any time, and they will read it.
4. Autoresponders don't work for everyone . If you have a list of people who have expressed interest in your content or service, then you can set up an autoresponder sequence for them to help you build a relationship with them over time. If you're not sure whether an autoresponder will work for your business or not, just ask a few people on your list – either friends or potential customers – who are ready to hear from you about your next book, product or service.
5. Most email programs offer a free trial .

6. Get More Subscribers
It's really easy to get a lot more subscribers, but you need to have systems and processes in place so you don't waste your time doing it all manually. I recommend that you follow these 4 steps when trying to grow your audience and increase the number of people on your list:
1. Make it easy for them . If you want people to sign up for your list, then make it as simple as possible for them.
