*The Automatic Responder is generally referred to as an Autoresponder.

What is an Autoresponder?

Autoresponder - An automated system that sends out a prewritten email to a person who has requested information.

Autoresponders are essential for doing business online!

Here's why:

Instead of having to respond to each individual that requests information about your product or business,repparttar autoresponder automatically sends outrepparttar 117142 information.

This frees you up to focus on other areas of marketing. Let's face it, if you begin to create a huge "opt-in email" list, you won't have time to respond to each individual person.

Opt-In Email - An opt-in email list is a list whererepparttar 117143 users have voluntarily signed up to receive e-mail about topics of interest. In double opt-in email listsrepparttar 117144 user must re-verify their request to be on a list.

O'kay, pretend for a moment that you are trying to sell cookbooks. You have an Opt-In Email box at your website where people can sign up to receive free desert recipes.

You've created an "Autoresponder Sequence" with desert recipes. You're now providing exactly what you promised, plus you're able to promote your cookbook.

Five Myths and Five Tips for Breaking Into a Career as a Fashion Designer

Written by Jennie S. Bev,

Becoming a fashion designer is a lifelong dream for many of us. We all love to wear beautiful clothes and make ourselves feel good fromrepparttar inside out.

We often imagine what it feels like to actually make money doing something this great: dressing people up and making them feel good, models catwalkingrepparttar 117141 runway gracefully to showcase our designs, stylists working frantically atrepparttar 117142 backstage and we are introduced as "the designer" atrepparttar 117143 closing. Ah, pretty tempting, indeed, but somehow it feels so surreal. Can I actually become a fashion designer?

Despiterepparttar 117144 misconception that only those who graduate from New York prestigious fashion schools can make it big in this highly lucrative and competitive field, many fashion designers literally work their way up working from home.

Karen and Warren Hipwell, for instance, started and still operate design studio from their residence in Massachusetts. Despite their humble start, now their products are sold in 110 retailers nationwide. Pure luck? Think again.

You, too, can become a fashion designer even if you have never worn "designer" clothes, don't have a fashion degree, can't draw or sew, and live far away from New York or Los Angeles. These are no more than myths. Let me briefly explain them to you.

Myth One: I have never worn "designer" clothes. Reality: All clothes, including those in your closet, are designed by fashion designers. Many people confuse designer "collection," which means high-priced seasonal line designed by top designers, with "the person" who designs clothes.

Myth Two: I don't have a fashion degree. Reality: Unlikerepparttar 117145 medical professions, which require extensive classroom and hands-on training, you can learn how to design anywhere. No special education is needed. You'll be surprised to know that many established designers don't have any special training.

Myth Three: I live far away from New York or Los Angeles. Reality: While NY and LA are great places to find an internship position with established designers, fashion is a part of life and fashion designers can be found everywhere. Whether you live in a city of millions or a town of 10,000, there must be at least a few local fashion designers.
