What's Wrong With This
Copyright © 2004
This week, I had to set up a new autoresponder for an Internet Superconference.
Free informative articles were available to help promote the conference,
but I didn't want to pay (monthly) for a promotion that would only last a
week or two. I decided that I would test out a new system to review for my
I found an exciting autoresponder system, offering the following special
A free trial
Unlimited autoresponders (for
Uses your own domain name
Sends forms via email
A more flexible "time to send" feature,
which allows you to send messages on specific days of the month as well as
specific number of days since they requested your response.
Translates your list of names into
Excel, a database file (.csv) or as text.
Can separate your list to target
your marketing efforts and
Track ad campaigns
Those are all in addition to the
most common autoresponder features.
If it worked in the free trial, I would have replaced my autoresponder-of-choice
with this product.
I was impressed with the website, but when I clicked, "Free Trial," the page
simply reloaded. I tried entering my name and email address into the box
for more information. An hour later, I received nothing.
Here is a company with an excellent product (or at least the idea for an
excellent product) and a well-designed website, but they are not making any
money because their website doesn't work. I'm sure you will not be surprised
to hear that this is not the first time this has happened to me.
Please check your website to make sure this is not happening to you. Make
sure your pages load quickly and your links, scripts, and forms all work
properly and make a habit of checking things regularly, if not frequently.
