Hello!

Any idea or suggestion about how to set up a paid sequential autoresponder course?

I created two free autoresponder courses for my websites that were appreciated and now I would like to create a paid one but I can't work out how to set it up on a low budget.

Thank you for your help!

I hear you about the low budget! Here's what I do using only SBI! tools and a Paypal button. Set up your sales page, put a Paypal button on it. On the page where you set it up on Paypal, go to the second to last option where it says, send people to this url when they complete payment (or words to that effect). Make a page on your site with an unguessable url, make it secret from the search engines. Put a sign up box on that to capture email addresses. This is where you'll build your auto responder with FBI!. They'll automatically get sent the autoresponder, just by signing up.

These are the sort of situations that make me really wish SBI was not the walled garden that it is -- it doesn't talk to any other online service, and doesn't allow any other web service to talk with it.

Jacki's "security by obscurity" trick will work. But note that when someone cancels / refunds, you'll need to manually remove the person from the list.

Alternatively, you could forget MoM and use a mailing list service that natively integrates with PayPal (or your payment gateway of choice) and can automatically add and remove users when they order or cancel.

Yes, not sure how to deal with that, but if it's a one payment type of thing, generally, I find anyway, that they don't ask for a refund. Just make sure that you completely outline what they'll get and what to expect. That minimizes disappointment and manages expectations.

Thanks Jacki! It's a little convoluted but I guess it's the only way to go.

While I was writing this, it struck me that I have no idea how many visitors that subscribed to my free course got to the end of it and therefore might be interested in my paid course.

Is there any way to get this data?

This is kind of the reason for setting up a Form Build It form. All that info is in the Get Form Data section of Site Central.
