The autoresponder has many different ways to be utilized. In this article we are going to talk about how to use it after you have made a sale.

So you have worked to get people to your site and now they are beginning to buy from you. When they place their order with you through your website, it is always very important to immediately acknowledge the purchase. A great way to do this is with your autoresponder.

You can set it up so that your autoresponder is integrated with your shopping cart. This means that when they place an order they will get a message right away that thanks them for the purchase.

Now in the autoresponder message, do not just simply say thank you and move on, for you will miss a great opportunity? Take this time as a special chance to talk to your customer and let them know of other special items or deals that are available to them.

However there are a few things that you should be aware of when doing this. First you should not add things to the email you send saying thanks. Do not include the receipt, or the address to go and download. The thank you message with the deal should be sent all by itself so the customer can focus just on that.

Make sure to be genuine and thank the person for their recent purchase. Tell them how much you believe that your product will help them. That is when you can add the others items that go along with it.

It is important to remember to only try and sell at this point the things that are the same type of thing or that can be used with it. For instance, if you sold an e Book on golf clubs, then you could sell golf gloves or golf balls. This is the time to let them know of the other things that could compliment their purchase.

The most important thing that you should have gotten from this article is that the customer should not get away from you without further contact! As plain and simple as that sounds it is the truth. Use the thank you page for continued contact. If you think about it, it is a lot like the same experience you will have when you go shopping at a store in your neighborhood. You find what you want and take it to the counter. While waiting in line to pay you get to browse over things that are for sale. Last minute items that you can and some of the time impulsively buy. The thank you letter you generate for your customers is the same thing.

One of the worse mistakes that you can make, besides leaving the customer get away with just a thank you, is to inundate them with too much information. It is alright to send an email now and then with special deals and offers, but do not, no matter what, send them day after day notices of things they can buy from you.

So now you know how to connect the autoresponder with the shopping cart thank you letter. You know how important it is to use it responsibly. One more thought, is to remember to give great content and something of value to your customer. You are creating a relationship, not simply selling something.
