Autoresponder, as they come with most hosting plansm can also be used to deliver any response. For this, one just creates a separate mail address (e.g. pricing@domain.xx), and lets an autoresponder reply with the desired information.

RapidResponseBot Review

(In Deutsch)
RapidResponseBot LogoRapidResponseBot provides low cost sequential autoresponders. It follows the motto “by marketers for marketers” and is less designed and polished. It is sober and is limited to the essentials.

The functions of Rapid Response Bot help you maintaining your lists. Messages can easily be created and placed in a sequence.

The personalization options are limited but sufficient.

RapidResponseBot is limited to the most important statistics. It allows, however, that you monitor any links with so-called trackers. The trackers are not bound to the mails. The collected statistics can be obtained automatically via e-mail, which is really useful.

The documentation of RapidResponseBot is not particularly polished to a shine, but shows briefly and concisely how to set up the tool and work with it.

Rapid Response Bot is rather aimed at technically-oriented users. Usage is quite easy, but focuses less on point-and-click.

Nevertheless RapidResponseBot offers a lot, which is useful.
