How To Use Autoresponders With Affiliate Programs and Pop Up Windows

By Matthew May
Posted Thursday, November 18, 2004

It has been proven that most prospects much hear a message as many as 7 times before purchasing.

Multiple follow up autoresponder systems allow you to place an opt in form on your website which captures your prospect's name and email address and then sends them up to ten personalized follow up messages about your business.

A very effective way to capture the prospects name and email address is through a pop up window which opens whenever someone leaves your first page.

If you were selling a credit repair system for example your form could say "Place your name and email address here to get 10 free tips by email on how to restore your credit."

The problem arises when you are promoting an affiliate program and you are not allowed to modify their self replicated webpages.

What we do is to make a copy of the first page of the self replicated site and place it on our servers or on a free web host with our modifications.

All the links still go to our affiliate site so we get still get credit for any sales and the new page has our pop up autoresponder form on it.

Here is how you do this:

1. Open your browser and go to the first page of your affiliate website.
