How Can I Find A Good Free Autoresponder?
When starting out in online marketing, many people will ask the question “How can I find a good free autoresponder?”
But is that a good idea?
What Is An Autoresponder?
Every Online Marketer will tell you that in order to really succeed you must have an Email list. This is a list of people who have expressed an interest in what you are offering and have given you their email address in return for more information.
These people come from a variety of places. They may have visited your website because they saw something which you had posted on social media or because they found you on Google, or they may be responding to one of your adverts.
However they found you, these people are like gold dust! It is vitally important to regularly contact them with more information and offers based on the subject in which they originally expressed an interest.
This is where an Autoresponder Comes In!
When you have a number of people on your list, it is virtually impossible to write individual emails to each one of them, and Email providers will soon start to complain if you frequently send out bulk emails!
When you use an Autoresponder it is possible to write one email and send it out to as many people as you wish. You can also write a series of follow-up emails which can be sent on subsequent days, and you can specify the exact day and time of day when they are sent out.
Thus if people are responding to an offer, you can set up the Autoresponder to send out the offer as soon as the request is received, automatically, hence the name Autoresponder!
You can also design a form for people to fill in on your site which triggers the Autoresponder to send out the required information. You will be notified when the response is requested.
All of those things are obviously impossible without an Autoresponder.
There are many other uses for an Autoresponder which you will discover as you use it.
There are several autoresponders available. Probably the best known are Get Response and Aweber. Both of those do have a very good reputation, and will do the job well.
How Can I Find A Good Free Autoresponder And Is It Possible?
There are several free Autoresponders available, but be very careful which one you choose! Many of those are not easy to use and are not really adequate for the job.
In fact, some free autoresponders are not all they seem.
It has come to my attention that at least one of them will actually use your list to send their own messages – so please do be very wary!
In fact, I would strongly advise you to go for an established company, even if that does involve a fee.
I would recommend that you choose one which allows you to have a free trial, so that you can find your way round it before you need to start paying for it.
So Which Autoresponder Should I Choose?
Get Response is a great Autoresponder.
It offers a free trial, and after that time it costs $15 per month, and this can be reduced even further if you pay for a period of either one or two years in advance. If you are in a position to do that, it can be a saving of up to 30%.
It also has a wide selection of Landing Pages, and tuition is provided to use those, and also of course in the use of the Autoresponder.

Aweber is an extremely good autoresponder.
Aweber is not the cheapest, but it also offers a free trial, and it is easy to navigate and use. It is well established, and provides very good Email support if you have any problems.
It also provides tutorials which show you how to use it.

I have used Mailchimp, and I can recommend it. Mail chimp is not totally free, but it is a very good option for anyone just beginning to use an Autoresponder.
It allows you to have 2000 subscribers on your list before it is necessary to change to a paid account.

Of course, there are many other Autoresponders available – far too many for me to list them all here.
But I am sure you will find that one of the ones which I have mentioned will suit your needs when you are first starting out.
