* A quick note about Campaign Monitor: there are some cheaper Campaign Monitor plans available which allow you to host the same quantities of email addresses as outlined above, but they limit the number of e-newsletters that you can send to them. For the sake of a fair comparison, I’ve referenced the costs for Campaign Monitor plans that permit unlimited broadcasts as these plans are comparable in terms of send volumes permitted to the Aweber ones.
George: So that folks, is super smart. So, Tom, it’s amazing. This interview flew by man. Great answers. Like, we’re just clipping away. Here’s my thing. If people want to learn more about you, if they want to learn more about AWeber, and by the way, thanks for taking the time to do this, where can we send them? Where do you want to have them go for you, for AWeber, for whatever interesting things that you might want to share?

AWeber customers pay monthly subscription fees based on the size of their email audience. This is a surprisingly simple and refreshing formula, especially in a culture when many competitors offer extra tools, extra templates and extra support only for those at the higher service levels. This “pay more/get more” approach also encourages the “bare bones” customers to consider upgrading so they can better access full premium services. But with AWeber, everyone gets access to everything, although the total amount of tools available is fewer than some competitors.
Yeah, I could probably pay a coder to write an app that allows their API to be single optin, etc, but why? I’d still want to have the ability to add people manually and have them automatically sign into my list. For example, I’m going to start doing some seminars locally. I want to be able to come home and add the 25 people to my email list…easily.
Importing or in any way using purchased leads with an AWeber account is strictly prohibited. If you paid money or in any way purchased a group of pre-existing leads these may not be used with AWeber. This includes co-registration services, "safe lists" or any type of free leads given to you. Only people that have specifically requested information directly from you may be emailed through AWeber.
All services provided by AWeber Systems may be used for lawful purposes only. Transmission or storage of any information, data or material in violation of any United States Federal, State or City law is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to: copyrighted material, material legally judged to be threatening or obscene, or material protected by trade secret and other statute. The subscriber agrees to indemnify and hold harmless AWeber Systems from any claims resulting from the use of the service which damages the subscriber or any other parties.
Autoresponders are e-newsletters that are sent to your mailing list subscribers at pre-defined intervals – for example, you can set them up so that straight after somebody signs up to your list, they receive a welcome or ‘onboarding’ message from your business; a week later they could receive a promo code for specific products; two weeks later they could receive an encouragement to follow you on social media. And so on!
It is important to realize that almost no service in the Email Marketing Software category is going to be an ideal solution able to meet all the requirements of different business types, sizes and industries. It may be a good idea to read a few AWeber reviews first as certain solutions can dominate exclusively in a really narrow group of applications or be created with a very specific type of industry in mind. Others may operate with an idea of being simple and intuitive and therefore lack complex elements desired by more experienced users. You can also come across apps that cater to a broad group of customers and provide a rich feature toolbox, however this in most cases comes at a more expensive price of such a service. Be certain that you're aware of your needs so that you get a software that offers all the features you look for.
ActiveCampaign lets you easily create eye catching email campaigns to help you stay in touch with your contacts and customers. Their visual campaign builder lets you easily create automated marketing campaigns and send out targeted emails to your potential customers based on their personal interactions with your business and their integrated CRM lets you keep track of your leads and close more deals to grow your business.
However, the web fonts that you can use in Mailchimp are exceptionally dull - so dull in fact that you might be better off using the web safe ones - they'll load more reliably and your e-newsletters will appear more consistently across email clients / devices. I love web fonts, but the Mailchimp offering is so boring that there is currently little point to using them.
