Using an Autoresponder to Publish an Ezine
There are many uses for an
Autoresponder. One such use is the publishing and
distribution of an ezine or newsletter. Since Autoresponder
services usually are set up to send automatic responses to
the people on the list at certain intervals after they sign up,
setting up an Autoresponder and using it to publish an ezine can be
a little confusing.
Depending on the service or Autoresponder that you are using, you
will need a ?broadcast? feature. The broadcast feature works
essentially the same as the autoresponse feature, with one big

delivered to your mailing list, no matter where you are or what you are

Since all past broadcast and autoresponse messages are saved, you can
easily refer back to old issues, or allow people to request past issues.
You can also use the tracking feature throughout each issue of the
newsletter to determine how many clicks you are getting for the various
products or websites that you promote in your ezine.
If you have not yet purchased an Autoresponder or signed up with any
Autoresponder service, make sure that you inquire about

services have this feature, and as your marketing progresses, you will
