@amyhallbiz I’m in the process of compiling an eBook about Autoresponders & functionality.
I’m on many peoples lists including most of the “Big Cheese” Gurus for mostly research purposes.
We’re all constantly being told that “The Money Is In The List” why is it then that Infusionsoft, along with most of the other players, only have an “Unsubscribe” option for their Clients who are paying a minimum of $199 per month?
Infusionsoft call me at regular intervals both from the States & their relatively new UK office, as they want me to become an Affiliate. I’ve pointed out this issue to them until I’m “blue in the face” but most of the emails I’m getting via them, still only have the “Unsubscribe” option.
I’ve said to them that as a potential Client, spending that sort of money, I would be appalled to find that this option was even available as against “Change Subscriber Options” which allows you to change your email address & or unsubscribe. It takes a lot of time & money to build a list, it shouldn’t be that easy to lose a someone on it!
I’ve found one free option that offers an even better choice, it also allows you to “Pause” your subscription if your inbox is overwhelmed. I’ve told them about this also but thus far no response or implementation.
My main point re Infusionsoft is that it is at the higher end of the “Intelligent” Autoresponder products available & is not necessary unless you have a lot of Upsell/Downsell in your Product Tree Strategy.
I am an Affiliate for AWeber (link on my Profile here) & the add-ons that they have, compared to most of the other paid option Autoresponders are great.
The Rapportive.com Gmail extension in Google Chrome is awesome. You can download this without being an AWeber customer. Please try it out you’ll be amazed at how much info it gives you about your email sender!
Sorry if this post is a trifle long but I felt it important to point out the “faults”.
