Last night I stayed up
late tinkering with 1Shoppingcart’s irritating interface.
My friend Ben and I
are working on a project in which we needed to filter our contacts in very
complex ways. The reason?
mailing list allows you to find “pockets” of money and untapped potential.
Segmenting proved not
to be a simple task. We spoke with support several times and played around with
the filters for days before getting the result we wanted.
At one point, we seriously
considered switching ONCE MORE to another autoresponder service.
This is NEVER fun. We
lose contacts every time we make a switch, so it was honestly the LAST THING we
wanted to do.
But like I said, it wouldn’t
be the first time we changed autoresponder.
Anyway, Ben said,
something interesting that got me thinking…
He said, “Jeez one of
these days we ought to make an autoresponder service of our own. I’m pretty
convinced these things aren’t created by marketers at all–they’re made by
programmers who have no idea what we need.”
You know what?
He’s right. A smart
email marketer SHOULD create an autoresponder service. You, Ben, and I would
all be paying them our monthly contact management fees without a doubt.
They’d of course have
to hire the programmers and tell them what to do.
But it would be a far superior
service. Instead of paying two autoresponders $200 and $100 a month, one
autoresponder would cater to all our marketing needs.
It would solve all the
problems we face.
It would be simple for
marketers to use, since the creator knows how technically challenged most of us
But alas…all the
marketers we know are too busy trying to sell an affiliate ebook, marketing
system, or network marketing opportunity.
Which is really a
shame. I think it’s a waste of marketing talent.
That’s why I believe
our Done-For-You Traffic is a valuable consultation for the right people. Even
though it is called “done for you TRAFFIC”, we actually do MUCH MORE than
