To use B-A-R-T you need the following:

1. j2 Business web fax account

There is a free version of this software, so you do not need to pay a monthly fee of $12.50, but we recommend you get a business web fax account.  If you use this link  you can sign up for an account that will activate instantly.

Having a web fax account will allow you to have faxes set to anyone instantly from your website.  [If you are not going to use this feature with B-A-R-T, you do not need to sign up for a web fax account.]  

If you already have a web fax account with a company other than j2 or efax, you may be able to use that as well.  Please contact customer service for details about other compatible web fax systems that will work. 

NOTE: If you do use another web fax package, we will not provide support on this feature.  Full support is available to all j2 fax customers.

To sign up for an aWeber autoresponder account simply use this link.  You can sign up for the system on a free trial for 30 days, and pay nothing if you decide you don't want to use this follow-up autoresponder.

You can use a free autoresponder, one you already own will work just fine as well.  If you use hosting services from  you have an autoresponder included with your hosting that you can configure.

We strongly recommend the AWeber system, as it has automated follow up, list management, real-time remove, personalization and broadcast capabilities.

Using the aWeber system is recommended because it not only keeps a full searchable database of your leads and date/time of inquiry, but it also incorporates the follow up system that will greatly increase  your exposure and will generate a long-term list of leads that you can send personalized request to at any time.

You can also use the View my permanent logfile to get a text file containing ALL of the leads since you started using B-A-R-T, should you wish to do a follow up mail merge to your whole list.

Once your file is saved, you are ready to merge.  

Here is a sample Word Document to download / save.

You use the b-a-r-t daily merge text file to merge the document with.  If you don't have Word, use MS Word reader to get the sample and create your own merge document in your own word processing program.

You can make your letter say anything you want to.  It is best when you enclose a personal letter, that tri-folds to fit your window envelope, along with a brochure or product literature, and a reply form that can be mailed or faxed back to you - an order form or sign up form will produce the best results.

This system will have greatest impact if you do the mail merge and send out the literature EVERY DAY.
