A theory: Setting up an autoresponder to promote your services to emails you recieve.
I've been thinking about this for a while and I'm not 100% sure if it would work because I'm not an email campaign "Guru" lol. So I'm posting here to see if anyone can help me out
My theory, or method, is that I can set up an auto responder on one of my emails so that I can have an email sent out to anyone who emails me. I know it's possible to set up an auto responder for something like this, but I'm not sure how many emails can be sent out per hour.
My idea is to set up a specific email, one I won't be responding to very often, and go around to sign up for countless newsletters using this auto responder email. I'll then begin to receive emails from these companies and then my auto responder will kick in. I know that my auto responder will usually just be responding to automated newsletter systems, but how often do companies read those responses to the newsletters?
Now signing up for a load of newsletters with an auto responder email won't do much if the response is just "Thanks for the info!" lol. So my idea was to put my own advertisements in the auto responder and have it sent to anyone that emails me. Do you think that could be a workable method to increase sales and help out branding? I have a physical product about to be launched in the next month or two and I was going to sign up for niche related websites that don't yet offer a product like mine and hopefully get them to respond with a bit of interest.
What my email would contain.
Thanks for the email! I do love what you guys are offering and I am definitely interested. I also offer something in the same niche, but nothing like your product. Actually, I don't think you currently offer something like our product on your website. We sell (insert product here) and if you'd be interested in offering it to your customers we can work something out
Here's my website if you want to check it out: (Insert website here)
Does that sound like it could be a viable method to increase sales? I think it could work, but I'm not very good with email campaigns lol. Obviously I wouldn't make as much money from the website owner per sale, but they would have to buy enough inventory to keep their customers happy. It would also help get my name out there quicker than building my own sales. Also, my product has my logo and domain name on it ;)
I'd really appreciate it if someone with email campaign experience could chime in on this
