What is Rapport?

A good relationship in which you and your customers/referrals understand each other's feelings and ideas and communicate well.

In the online business world, email was proven to be the most effective means of communication as it also helps in identifying if a prospect is qualified to do business with us or not. (You can't join a company if you're not using email)

Building rapport with prospects or referrals and staying in touch with them is vitally important to our online business.

How Are We Going To Do That With Our WA Referrals?

Wealthy Affiliate provides us with ways to communicate with them, but in cases where you find posting in their profiles not enough, then you have to think of other ways to get in touch with your referrals outside WA platform.

I initially inquired if there's a way where WA can provide us names and contact info of our referrals so we can search for them in social media, but they declined for good reasons.

With this challenge, I find the idea of getting the desired information right before they enter the WA system, by using tools like lead capture page and autoresponders.

Now, since most autoresponder services already provide opt-in forms we can use in our site's side bars, as bloggers in WA, the idea of setting up a lead capture page becomes optional.

In this short tutorial, I'm going to orient beginners about autoresponders, the types according to use, and how to set them up.

Let's begin.

Hi Gomer, I have been studying the whole email thing for a while. Had Mailchimp at first and lately have read its not a good autoresponder for affiliate marketers(affiliate links) so as per Kyles request in the training, I am now wanting to switch to Aweber.

I have been getting more and more traffic and built up quite a list so far. It seems scary to try and switch it over as I have no experience prior to this.

All my subscribers will need to be transferred too. I was wondering if you had any advice as to how I can do this faster and easier than entering it in one by one. I think I can copy all the names to a file and then submit that file though not really sure yet.

All in the process of learning :) so any advice you can give would be a blessing! :) Sounds like you have a lot of experience in this area so thank you in advance.

In most autoresponder services, there's this feature of "one click export" wherein you can just click the button to download the list of your contacts to your computer. Once downloaded, you can login to your new autoresponder account and upload your contacts list. Please explore that feature in Mail Chimp and try use it.

You're welcome. Yes, explore it. A lot of successful members here have it. You can see in their blogs opt-in forms, pop-ups, opt-in bars, that collect emails of interested prospects.

Coach Gom,,

Thank you for sharing this great short but sweet training. One thing I learned is that most ARs provide opt-in forms. I feel like that is such a simple thing which I could have learned long ago. A highly kept secret by some IMers, perhaps? Anyway, no time like the present to learn and put into action! Thank you again.

Best,

Jamie
