As of this very moment, AutoResponderMax has sent out more than 2.5 MILLION customized emails on behalf of its growing list of clients. That’s 2.5 MILLION personalized connections between our retailers and their customers and no one had to lift a finger.
Now let’s do a little creative math* (*wild speculation) based on this post. Extrapolating from that single anecdote we can say with absolute certainty* that those emails have generated at least $1,297,585.88*. Heck… while we’re guessing, let’s say it it was a billion dollars*! Because it totally could have been*.
Regardless, the fact is that AutoResponderMax is easily one of the easiest, most affordable, most effective marketing tools for your Volusion store – did you notice how there was no asterisk* on that statement? That’s because it’s completely true! Seriously. ARMax is crazy good and the first month is free. Go sign up. Now.
This is an actual, unretouched screen shot from our boss’s iPhone showing that as yesterday, The Red Hat Society’s online store had made $1,118 in April by using AutoResponderMax – that’s a 2,281% ROI. If you haven’t already clicked over to AutoResponderMax to start your free trial, then allow us to give you all the details…
We own and operate The Red Hat Society Store. That gives us a lot of first-person insight into the needs of the average Volusion retailer. That insight led us to build AutoResponderMax – the email marketing tool for Volusion. We built it to meet a lot of the communication needs we have with our own online store. The screen shot here proves that we were pretty successful.
What you see here is a shot of the AutoResponderMax Dashboard app for iPhone. (Which is totally free, by the way.) It shows April’s usage data. Stated simply, ARMax sent 2,154 event-triggered (and personalized) emails to Red Hat customers. A remarkable 70% were opened and 41% of those resulted in click throughs. Those are all really good numbers if your only goal is to build your relationship with your customers. If, on the other hand, you’d also like to make money, the real number to look at is this month’s revenue – $1,118. That’s over a thousand dollars of revenue that is directly related to emails sent by AutoResponderMax. The Red Hat Society Store is on the Plus Plan (the most popular level) which means that thousand dollars cost us exactly $49 – bringing us back to that incredible 2,281% ROI – except that it isn’t incredible. It’s credible – and provable.
We have trouble talking about AutoResponderMax sometimes because basically we always just want to say, “Try it, for crying out loud! The first 30 days are free and it’s awesome and it totally pays for itself over and over and it’s so easy and what are you waiting for? DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!“ Now, with this photographic proof that it works so dramatically well, we’re almost overwhelmed with the desire to reach out of the screen, grab your mouse and sign you up ourselves. Of course, that would be rude, so we’ll just strongly suggest that if you’re a Volusion retailer and you don’t have AutoResponderMax, you’re almost certainly leaving money on the table and that’s just crazy. Go sign up right now!
Anecdotal evidence shows that AutoResponderMax delivers a 7% – 17% conversion rate.
Okay. That was kind of an abrupt lead in, but we wanted to make sure you got the message in case you’re one of those people who only reads the first paragraph of anything. Anyhoo, now that we’ve got that out of the way…
AutoResponderMax is the autoresponder that Brand Labs created specifically for Volusion. It’s a fully automated, multi-featured direct marketing machine and so far, it’s enabled our clients to send over one million emails directly to their customers. It’s easy, it’s affordable and it works around the clock. It gathers product reviews, sends customized sales pitches and a bunch of other stuff to help you keep in touch with your client base. It can also help you to reclaim sales lost to abandoned carts and anecdotal evidence shows that AutoResponderMax delivers a 7% – 17% conversion rate.
See how we brought that right back around?
AutoResponderMax is our very own custom Volusion autoresponder and we’re pretty proud of it. It’s affordable, loaded with features, easy to use and it’s a part of Volusion’s Partner Marketplace. It is, quite honestly, too good to be true.
… but don’t take our word for it. Ask our peppy new commercial. It’ll tell you how wonderful AutoResponderMax is – and if you can’t trust a commercial, who can you trust?
We really don’t know how to explain it any better. AutoRespondermax is simply… well… how about if we let Sergiy from BestPysanky.com tell you:
“We’ve been using AutoResponderMax for 5 months now and the results are great! AutoResponderMax is one of best marketing options for your Volusion store! It took us only 15 minutes to set up. Hundreds of highly targeted emails are sent automatically and sales increased at least 5%.“
That sounds like we wrote it, right? Well, we didn’t. It was a totally unsolicited testimonial from an AutoResponderMax customer, but we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. If we had our way, every single Volusion customer would sign up for the 30-day trial to see how amazingly easy the setup is and to benefit from the FREE month of automated marketing that comes with it. We’re completely confident that everyone who tries it will love it just as much as Sergiy does.
… as long as you love completely automatic revenue increases, which we assume you do.
It’s a well-supported fact that online shoppers want to see reviews for the products that they’re considering. More than 80% (according to oft-quoted industry figures) want to see a review before they take the leap and a vast majority of that group wants to see more than one review. That’s not a problem if you happen to be Amazon or Zappos, but it can be a challenge for smaller retailers, but that doesn’t mean that you’re out of the game.
An auto responder with review-gathering functionality can automate the task of soliciting comments from your customers. Best practices suggest that you send a review solicitation 21 days after the order is placed, giving the customer time to receive their product and live with it for a little while. We have some pretty handy anecdotal proof that the strategy works.
The Red Hat Society Store has been running the review solicitation app that’s included in AutoResponderMax since January of this year. Gathering reviews has historically been especially challenging for the store, since a good number of its patrons are relatively unfamiliar with ecommerce. However, since installing AutoResponderMax, they’ve received over 300 reviews as a result of the automated solicitation. That’s a conversion rate of 7% for the campaign.
Auto responders simply work. It’s an undeniable fact. We’re so comfortable saying that that we’ll repeat it: auto responders work. Now if we can shift from talking in general terms, we’d like to talk a bit about AutoResponderMax specifically. It’s fantastic. It’s easy as pie, cheap as dirt and as powerful as Superman (if Superman were an ecommerce plugin for Volusion). We have yet to see a case wherein it didn’t pay for itself almost immediately. Seriously. Go sign up. You won’t regret it.
… oh. And it’s totally free for 30 days. You’ve got nothing to lose.
Seriously… go sign up.
