I have tried to post many banner in my website and blog but I can only get people to by pass it with impression. Although there maybe few clicks once awhile but it is hard to see any sell yet. I keep looking for breakthrough buy always see others use auto responder to be success in this online business.Unfortunately, it is a bit complicated to use things like that and it is not free all the times. Even there are few free auto repsonder that I can use it, but it will only allow you to send five message the most. Well, if you know anything about this and any good suggestion to help me out , I like to listen to it.I don't want to pay for any services because it is expensive and I can't afford it since I haven't earn anything big for the time being.

I can't answer your question as a person that uses an auto responder, so I can't help you in that way. However, from the other side of the coin, I have to say that I really don't like autoresponders. I know that I won't get a response as quickly if someone was writing the email themselves, however I do think that it is nicer to have an email that is written to me instead of something that is automaticall generated.

Hi, In some ways it's going to depend on what you want to use your auto-responder for. If you offer people something for joining (a free one off product or an email series etc - like I've done with my build your business series) then yes they can be worth it. If you just want people to sign up so you can bombard them with promotional emails then they'll be unsubscribing just as quickly. There are some good free auto-responders out there - in fact the one I use is free for the first 100 subscribers then you get charged - so that might work for you (depending on your plans) by the time you have that many subscribers you might be earning enough to pay for the extra subscriptions etc.
