Internet Promotion: Autoresponder Thank You Messages

Written by Richard Lowe

Okay, how do you get people to voluntarily give your their email address? By providing many opportunities for visitors to submit something ... anything. Each of these forms should include a place for them to enter their email address.

Now, do NOT sell or give out these email addresses. There is no need to do this, and in fact there are significant reasons to not do so. Most people do not want their private data spread all overrepparttar internet, and very few people want to wind up on hundreds or thousands of spam lists.

One valuable, non-spam way to use these email addresses is called an autoresponder. What this means is that you send out an automatic email message whenrepparttar 125162 user submits something to you. Just one message, which can say anything that you want.

Be sure that you indicate you are doing this inrepparttar 125163 description of whatever from they are filling out. A simple line like "you will receive one email confirming your entry" or something like that is all you need.

Some examples of where this is appropriate:

- Guest book - Polls and surveys - Feedback forms - Any other form that you haverepparttar 125164 user fill out which includes his email address.

Keep this email very short (one screen maximum) and be sure and include a way for him to opt-in (sign up) for your email newsletter (I assume you've got an email newsletter?). This will permanently give you, with your visitor's permission, his email address. Again, respect your visitor's privacy. You where given an email address for a specific purpose. Don't abuse it or you will lose your visitor.
