Last Updated: Apr 26, 2016 | Print this Article

Using Autoresponders

Autoresponder emails are email templates that are sent automatically in response to a prospect action, like filling out a form. These emails provide another way to get a tracked touch with prospects and lead them to interact more deeply with your site. With completion actions you can set autoresponder emails for your forms, form handlers, files, custom redirects and emails. 

Use autoresponders to welcome prospects to a mailing list, as part of a confirmed opt-in process,  send a link to requested resources such as white papers, confirm event registrations, or simply acknowledge that you have received a prospect’s inquiry and will follow up shortly.

Creating an autoresponder email is easy: simply create an email template and be sure to mark Autoresponder emails in the Available for section of the Basic Template Information box.
