This tip applies to any type of autoresponder however I use Trafficwave so you may have to tweak how you are able to accomplish this, but it should be easy!  If you’ve been building your list for a while you may find that there are times when you feel you may have lost touch with your list members.  While your list may seem like it’s gone stale here is a great way to clean your list and locate new clients and customers.

Your list isn’t dead but it could be it’s social!  Do you belong to a social site like Apsense the business social network or Facebook, Linked In?  Then you have the perfect way to start making real contact with these folks on your list and in fact you can grow both your email mailing list and your social contact list as well.

It will seem like your business just got an injection of activities like new referrals, new recruits for your MLM or even sale notifications telling you that you just earned a commission.  No matter if you have your own products or promote other peoples products and programs, if you are active on the social site it’s a great place to get together at a time that is convenient for both of you.

Here’s how it works you may want to book mark this page or take notes.

1. Write a quick email to send to your current list with an invite to join the social site in this case Apsense, so you can add them to your contact list and they too can add you to theirs.  It’s mutual communications and is a natural way to interact, well as normal as it can be in the web.

2. Log into to your Trafficwave autoresponder back office and pick the list you wish to clean first.  If you only have one this won’t take long, if you have many lists, you can use the copy message feature to have the invite letter saved into any other campaign you have.  Once you have picked the list to send to, click on letter and then create a new letter.

3. Paste your letter into the body of the message, add your subject, proofread it, save it and you’re ready to broadcast or add it to your current letter series.  Since it’s an invite you will want to do the broadcast to get things moving along.

4. Remember to have your sign up link in the invite letter so they can join you from their inbox.

5. Repeat for as many lists as you may have, since Trafficwave is unlimited everything for only $17.95 per month, it’s easy to have a lot of lists.  Sorry for the shameless plug but hey it’s my blog. 🙂

6. Now each person who joins or connects with you from in this case Apsense, your true list is being developed.  There are so many ways to connect with each other that it makes the process of doing business seem more natural.  In fact this is the exact ingredient that leads to paid upgrades and sales.

That takes care of your current list but what about the new subscribers you get from your lead capture page?  Again this is where Trafficwave has the solution because you are able to guide your new subscriber to a site of your choosing.  In this case you might take that person the minute they click submit to your thank you page.  On your thank you page you could have instructions on what to do next, like click here to join Apsense and connect with me now.  Or check your inbox for the confirmation link to verify you wish to make contact with me.

When they confirm their email address you can tell Trafficwave to send that person to your Apsense sign up page so they can join for free and then connect directly with you.

It is not complicated to set this up in fact it only takes a few minutes to accomplish it.  I am confident that once you implement these few tips you will have a lot more action in your business.

Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more!
