Types Of Autoresponders For Internet Marketing
Autoresponders are divided into
three main types remotely hosted, locally hosted, and desktop
hosted. For many Internet marketers, locally and desktop hosted are
far preferred over remotely hosted. Although remote hosted are good,
locally and desktop
hosted autoresponders will allow you complete control as
you are running the program on your own site.
If you have a domain name, you can use as
many autoresponders as you like, all of which will match your domain name.
When you use a remotely hosted program, you won't be able to use your
domain name with the autoresponder. Instead, you'll receive an address
from the provider that resembles their link. This can be great for some,
although many prefer to have their own domain names listed in the
If you use your own domain name with your
autoresponder, you can normally keep it secret that you are using an
autoresponder. When you send out emails using your autoresponder, it will
display your website email, making it very hard to detect an
autoresponder. This can be a great way to use your autoresponder,
especially if you don't want your customers to know that you are using
If you use a remotely hosted
autoresponder, those you send messages to with notice that you are using
an autoresponder. You should think of this from their prospective if you
were their customer, you probably wouldn't want to receive messages from
an autoresponder. Instead, you would want to receive your emails and
messages from someone real, giving you complete individual attention.
If you are just starting out with your
company and happen to be on a tight budget, a remotely hosted
autoresponder may very well be the best solution. You can use it until you
get more money and get back on track, although you shouldn't use it long
term. Remotely hosted programs can get expensive very quickly; as the
monthly charges will add it quick each month you use the program.
You can find
hosted autoresponders all over the Internet. One of the best on
the net is
Aweber.com - You can read more about them and what they have to
offer. If you like what you see, all you'll need to do is sign up and then
you begin using their services with a remotely hosted autoresponder.
Although locally hosted autoresponders are
preferred, they do have disadvantages. Some types will limit how
many domains you can install them on. If the vendor doesn't provide free
installation, you could have a problem installing the script, as most
require some degree of technical experience. Although you have complete
control over the program, locally hosted programs don't have as many
features as remotely hosted programs.
Desktop hosted autoresponders are also
great, although they too have disadvantages. Some types will limit how
many copies you can install on different computers. To get the most from
them, you'll need a computer that is always connected to the Internet.
You'll also need some experience to set them up, and they aren't
recommended for those who have large mailing lists.
Although there are 3 main types of
autoresponders, the type you choose should depend on your website and
your needs. What's the best idea for you may be completely useless to
someone else. When you make your final decision, you should always decide
on what you need for your company then pick an autoresponder that works
best for you.
