An autoresponder is a custom message that is automatically emailed to your website visitors after they have interacted with one of your GetSiteControl widgets. You can enable an autoresponder for a Subscribe widget and then this email will be sent to all of your new subscribers. You can also create an autoresponder for Contact and Survey widgets so that everyone who leaves their email address on your website receives an autoreply. You can use this message to thank people for subscribing or contacting you. You can also use this email to send discount coupons, links to download bonus materials or other information that will help to keep your customers engaged.
