What is an Auto Response Email?

Imagine this: someone visits your website and decides they like what they see so much that they sign up to hear more from you. That's where Auto Response Emails come into play. They're like your website's way of saying "Hi" and "thank you!" to your visitors automatically after they sign up.

With Auto Response Emails, you can:

  • Give a warm "Welcome" to your new friends (a.k.a. subscribers)

  • Share a special discount code to make their day better

  • Send them a special gift, like a guide or a digital file, just for joining

It's a fantastic way to keep the conversation going and make your new subscribers feel right at home!

  1. Start Your Adventure: Open up your Sumo tool and click on "Forms" in the navigation menu. Think of it as the door to connecting with your visitors.

  2. Pick Your Messenger: Now, find a form you've already created – this is going to be the carrier pigeon for your message. Click to open it.

      Here's a quick rundown of what each part means:

      • Subject Line: Think of it as the title of your email – it's the first thing people will see.

      • From Name: This tells your subscribers who the email is from.

      • From Address: This is the email address your message will be sent from.

      • Body Text: The heart of your message. Keep it simple and sweet, as fancy HTML isn't allowed here.

  5. Celebrate & Monitor: Once your auto response is up and running, head back to the "Success" tab anytime to see how many smiles (a.k.a. emails) you've sent, who's opening them, and if they're clicking on anything fun inside.
