What an email autoresponder does can be explained very easily. Once a new subscriber has joined your email newsletter, your autoresponder service will send messages which you have prepared over time.
An autoresponder has many useful applications
Martin signs up for an email course about expanding his vocabulary on Monday. For one month he will get 5 emails a week with new words and their meaning.
All you had to do was to prepare all messages for the complete course once.
Andre signs up two or three weeks later, but on a Thursday. He will receive 5 messages on the following days, have 2 days off and will receive 5 messages again.
You will notice the difference between Martin and Andre. Martin has off on the weekends, Andre doesn't.
Of course, Andre doesn't need to read his emails on the weekend, but let's say he decided to read his course on Monday evening, he will find 3 emails from you. The daily course for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
Now my favorite email marketing service provider AWeber has solved this problem very elegantly.
To return to my example from above. By setting the send window for the follow-up messages of this email course to Mo-Fr you can make sure that Andre and everybody else who did not sign up for the course on a Monday gets their rest on the weekend.
What applications and examples can you come up with that utilize this new feature?
Let us know, leave a comment.
In case you are not using AWeber for your email marketing already. I think it's the perfect time to give them a try.
If you are following the Internet Marketing community for some time, you certainly will have heard about John Reese and his Million Dollar Payday. I have previously written about massive Internet Marketing launches and John Reese's BlogRushwidget.
He was the first one, who brought in 1 Million Dollars from a product launch in a single day. This was with his legendary product Traffic Secrets, which sold like crazy for 997.00 US$.
4 years later it's time for John to release a brand new product called Traffic Secrets 2.0, which will go live on

You might have received a lot of emails from John's marketing friends talking about the product and you might also have seen all 3 videos John has released to promote his sophisticated course.
If not, here is the link to the 3rd video and you also find the links to the 2 previous videos there.
I have introduced my Fake Tit For Tat Blog Carnival in January as a means of saying “Thank You” to those editors that have used my posts. I thought it's time to do this right now. Therefore, I split February in 2 parts and will list the rest of the carnivals at the end of this month.
The main benefits of being present in the Carnival-O-Sphere is that you get more exposure easily. I just made up that term Carnival-O-Sphere. It doesn't take long to submit your current post to Blogcarnival.com. The Pro-Bloggers actually outsource that part and have their assistants do that rather simple task.
1. You get new readers.
Although this heavily depends on the quality and popularity of the Carnival. There are basically 2 types of carnivals in my opinion:
