Do it #TodayNotSomeday: Create an Autoresponder Series

Do it #TodayNotSomeday: Create an Autoresponder Series (and tips on how to rock it!)

Yes, it can seem like a lot of work on top of an already-overflowing to-do list, but creating an autoresponder series has huge potential to pay off for you in both the short and the long term. So this episode of the ProBlogger podcast is all about moving that “someday” plan to create a series onto your task list today.

It can take as little as an hour of your time, but can really ramp up traffic (and potentially daily profit!) for your blog.

In the last couple of episodes of the #TodayNotSomeday series on the podcast, we discussed setting up an email list (and how to grow it), and creating an incentive for people to sign up to it. Now we move onto how you can deliver fantastic content to your readers through it, via an autoresponder.

In this episode I discuss everything you need to know from “ok but what is an autoresponder?!” to their (many) benefits, the variety of content you could send, the flow of emails, how often to send them, tips to create mailouts that get high engagement, and of course how create an autoresponder series that’s successful. I want you to think about the journey you want your readers to go on, and how you will provide them with useful, practical info along the way.

Don’t forget to share your progress on today’s challenge with the hashtag “TodayNotSomeday”, check out the show notes here, and sign up to get your free trial month with Edgar (the sponsor of this series) here. Now get mapping!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I was really in need of a detailed tutorial on Email List.

  2. Hi Darren.
    My name is TJ, and I am practicing medical/podiatric clinic in Chicago. I have passion for teaching and sharing my knowledge to other medical professionals. So I started learning about so many things. I purchased your 31 days to build a better blog package, and they are absolutely helping me a lot.

    I also listen to your podcast almost everyday when I am driving. You are really helping me a lot.
    I just want to give you 5-star for what you do for people like me.
