IMSC Rapid Mailer Review

There are some quite outstanding features with Rapid Mailer that most auto-responder systems don’t offer, one is the fact that it was a wordpress plugin, meaning that the installation is as simple as any other plugin making IMSC Rapid Mailer a desirable (if not essential) product for any internet marketer. Particularly if you want a low cost autoresponder.

So what is it?

IMSC Rapid Mailer is an autoresponder that’s a WordPress plugin that allows you to manage your customer (or potential customer) list yourself. There is no need to pay for third party autoresponders or pay monthly fees. Created by Sean Donahoe and released in April 2014.

What does it do?

Some of its outstanding features of IMSC Rapid Mailer is

  • The ability to change the auto-responder campaign on the fly. This means you are totally in charge
  • For example, if a lead subsequently buys a product after only one or two emails into the series of emails, you can turn off the follow-on emails for that particular product promotion and switch them into another series of related product emails without having them to opt in again.
  • You can import any existing list into IMSC Rapid Mailer without making your customers opt in again, you can set up multiple campaigns.
  • You can even set up a subscription newsletter and it comes with a subscription manager with PayPal links already built in ready to go.

However, an automated email system is no use without a ‘list’, so part of the training that comes with the system is sharing some strategies for building responsive lists, such as how to grab all of your Facebook friend’s or LinkedIn connections email addresses and import them straight into your IMSC auto-responder, thereby creating a list from day one.

 What do you get?

There are also quite a lot of other features with Rapid Mailer, some of these are;

  • The flexibility to publish your emails as a blog post
  • The use of the Simple WordPress editor as your email editor
  • The option to run a subscription service, where you can earn money for managing mailing lists of others
  • Having a selection of email templates to choose from
  • and many other features…

Some Cons

There were some aspects which could be improved. One is configuring the options, it is easy to be overwhelmed and confused by all the available options and this could easily become a time-consuming activity selecting which is best option for your situation.

The second is: The stats option as you don’t yet know what are the most important to look at on your dashboard (and this is a matter of personal preference) this can become a little confusing and figuring how you want it to look could be challenging as some components cannot be re-organized such as if you prefer more figures in your stats dashboard rather than graphs.

So some patience and a learning curve is necessary despite being touted as being ultra-simple set up … and be up and running quickly!

How Much is it?

Commercial licence is $67* *However you can get a single one site license for $27

Are there Up-sells?

Yes but you do not need them to get the complete Auto-responder package. The up-sells are for additional features, that are all great but optional.You can upgrade to the Pro Version of Rapid mailer and get four extra high power lead generation plugins for use on an unlimited number of sites for an additional $47. I bought this and have been very happy.

The next up-sell is for an additional 6 course advanced list building training. Mastering list building and lead generation that includes how to get 100,000 subscribers in the next 60 day for an additional $97.

(If you say no to this you will get a down-sell offer for half the course for $47.) I did not purchase this up-sell so I cannot comment as to its value.

There is also a down-sell for the rapid mailer for the $27 if you only want a single site licence, but you need to exit before you go to the payment page to have this option presented.

What about Support?

When we tested their support, we received what can only be described as ‘reasonable’ service however they were ‘pleasant’ to deal with.

My Recommendation?

I really like this plugin and its simplicity. It is a very handy thing to have in your internet marketing arsenal, especially if you are looking for more control and flexibility in the management of your site.

And at the one time purchase price it’s a great deal that’s unmatched anywhere. So I think it’s a great product at an awesome low price and the money saving potential (no ongoing monthly fees) is enormous for any serious online marketer.

Need More Proof?

What makes Azon Authority so special?

It’s the first and only store builder that can both sell FBA products and regular Amazon products. However the store doesn’t look like a regular Amazon Associate (affiliate) store. Why?

Because it uses a SmartCart Engine with best deal script. The buyer has a full shopping experience and doesn’t see links to Amazon (only to reviews on Amazon if you choose to add these to your product description). Also the buyer always has to put his purchase in the shopping cart (add to cart). Only if the buyer wants to check out a connection is made to Amazon and the software does that in a really smart way.

Best deal script:
Before the shopping cart items will be transferred into the Amazon shopping cart, the buyer will see a running script where the software is looking for the best deal. Of course the best deal is on Amazon and the buyer will be asked to confirm to add the products to the Amazon Add To Cart. See an example below:

Of course the SmartCart technology integrates seamlessly with Amazon Add to Cart. Hence it drops a full 90 Day cookie and Amazon will retarget your customers automatically.

But it even goes further. Azon Authority also drops an Amazon cookie even if your visitors doesn’t buy from your website! Yes, if your visitor goes to Amazon directly, you get paid for all their purchases. (Note: the Amazon Associates Program works with principle last referrer gets all the credits)

Furthermore you can create astonishing stores, fully mobile responsive and exactly the way you want them for the best user experiences. It has just all the features you need. And unlike other Amazon Stores WordPress plugins, Google sees this as a stand-alone store with your own products!

Are there any shortcomings?

This is the first version of this software. So often you can expect some bugs or programming errors. However it uses WP Profit Builder as backbone and that has proven to be “error and bug free”. So I didn’t find any major bugs.

Because I am an experienced user of WP Profit Builder, I find it easy to work with Azon Authority. If you don’t have that experience, it will probably take some extra time to get used to the page builder. But after that learning curve, you have so much more options to build astonishing websites and stores. So it’s worthwhile to invest your time into it.

Azon Authority is a store builder. I won’t use it to set it up as an Amazon Product Review site (I prefer WP Dollar 3.0 for review sites).

The scraper and import functionality works great. You can use the ASIN Grabber (scrapes all the ASIN code from any Amazon page), the Discount Founder (to find the best deals) or the Keyword Suggest tools (to dig into more specific keywords). You have enough settings to just import the data you want and can publish immediately or as draft posts.

Of course the automatically created content is “scraped from” Amazon, so it isn’t unique, but curated content. So I would advise to make your products more unique by adding your own content. This way it would be easier to rank in the search engines. But hey, Azon Authority does all the hard (boring and repeatedly) work for you. It’s way more easier just to add some text or videos to your (draft) posts than to start from scratch.

Why should you buy Azon Authority?

Because it’s an unique WordPress plugin to easily create beautiful and high converting Amazon stores. It has all the features you need. The unique SmartCart technology and fact that you can sell FBA products, makes this a must have plugin. Especially if you take into the account the…

Price

Upsells and OTOs

There are 2 upsells. The first one is the Done For You Power Builder ($97.00). In 3 simple steps you can clone Sean’s most powerful, pre-configured, optimized Store and insert your own selected products from Amazon.

Also included in the DFY Power Builder are 2 graphic generator tools: Banner/Header and Facebook Graphic Generator.

As downsell on the first upsell, you can get Done For You Power Builder Lite ($47.00). This is the same builder but without the graphic tools.

Plus you get 7 extra excellent WordPress Plugins developed by Sean Donahoe, including WP Profit Builder PRO, IMSC RapidMailer and ListRocket.

A super deal if you want to get the most out of Azon Authority. (Note: these extra tools and trainings aren’t necessary for AzonAuthority to fully operate, but give some extra juice to take your business to the next level).
