Welcome to episode 20 of Weekly Web Tools (origination from www.weeklywebtools.com )
Today we received a question from Laura at www.mbaworkinggirl.com
I am helping a family member with a website that
sells product through PayPal. We'd like to capture
the name and email address of customers as they
purchase product. This would enable us to contact
them in the future when new accessories for the
product are available.
Right now they are manually adding this information
to a contact group in their email address book as the
notifications of sales get emailed from PayPal.
Is there an easier or more automated way to do this?
I know you can accomplish this with aweber (an email list and autoresponder program). You can set it up so that when someone purchases your product, it automatically adds them to an auto responder (a series of emails that are automatically “time released” to your reader). They explain how to do it in this article. If you do decide to go with aweber, please order using my affiliate link (it would be great appreciated and help support this show). We did talk about some email list tools back in episode 10 as well.
I think I was listening to episode 5 or 6 and you were talking about
download servers. One you missed that is the BEST in the world is
