Internet marketing funnel automation is crucial to building a large list for email marketing. There are a few tools that I use to make my life easy when it comes to adding automation into my funnel.
The first piece is actually my auto-responder. I have both Aweber and GetResponse and there aren’t many differences between them. Gun to my head, go with Aweber.
I use the AR to integrate with my opt-in forms on squeeze pages and when a customer buys a product. They automatically get added to my email marketing list for that product or squeeze page and move further into the funnel. I don’t send subscribers directly to download pages, I let the AR send them a welcome message with the link to the download page.
Make sure you have that funnel automation step included because it increases engagement with your new subscriber and improves email open rates.
A second piece of internet marketing funnel automation software I use is a link tracker and rotator.
This is mainly for my freebie funnels. When a subscriber clicks a link on the thank you page after opt-in, they are directed, based on I.P. Country, to either an affiliate link that accepts Tier 1 traffic and then subscribers from Tier 2 countries are send to either a Clickbank product or a blog page with a related blog post and Google Adsense Ads. That way I can still monetize every subscribers. You all out there in the freebie list building game know how important this is.
For paid buyer funnels I mostly use Warrior Plus. I have a few products on JVZoo and now we are building out new internet marketing automated funnels using Infusionsoft. These tools platforms allow you to direct buyers to upsells, downsells, handle sales, affiliates, delivery, accounting, deposits and more all automated for you. Use these platforms to your advantage!
