Keep Things Current

If you don’t intend on emailing your list every day or every couple days, the best way to handle this is to setup up an autoresponder series that does it for you. Active Campaign is the autoresponder we use and recommend to our clients and Scriptly is what we use to help put our autoresponder campaigns together. Both of these work beautifully together.

Don’t let people forget who you are, use the power of software to automate your marketing.

Its funny because forgetting I was on someone’s list happened to me the other day. I received an email from a name I didn’t recognise and I was like, who is this guy?  I’ve never heard of him. I dug through past emails and finally realised who he was, I just couldn’t remember how I ended up on his list!

Don’t let this happen to you..

Now it’s your turn
