Before diving into the course...

I want you to understand there are several types of autoresponders.

And for each individual case - you have to understand what strategies you should be or should not be using.

In any case, the Building Blocks chapter teaches you the fundamentals that work no matter the type of autoresponder you want to build.

Here are three common types.

Welcome sequence: triggered on new subscriber

Product promotion: triggered on link click (a link inside one of your emails)

icon

Post-purchase promotion: triggered on a product sale

Note: If the tech behind these seems too hard, don't worry. I recorded small videos explaining to you how to set this up (next chapter, skip it if you already know)

Before writing any autoresponder sequence it's important to write down what you want to accomplish with it and breakdown all the components that can help you during that process.

Regardless of what your goal is...

You should always look at an autoresponder from a relationship-building standpoint.

Every email should push the sale forward by increasingly building the trust your reader has in you whether by showing empathy, being vulnerable, presenting social proof, or transferring confidence.

Key components you should know before starting any sequence

icon

Target Market: Who's exactly your target market

icon

Perfect Customer: How would you describe your perfect customer

icon

Problem: What's the problem you're looking to solve

icon

Offer: What's your offer and its benefits

icon

Mechanism: What's the unique mechanism of your offer

icon

Objections: What objections do the target market have

icon

Spell: What kind of social proof do you have to back up your claims

icon

Sword: How will you make your offer irresistible

I know it might sound like "boring" work to gather all this information together...

But this is key to give you clarity and make sure you can come up with compelling copy.
