The main aspects of the product that would nudge me in Aweber's direction are its ease-of-use and comprehensive support. The latter may be particularly important for some potential users, particularly those starting out in e-marketing without a truckload of technical skills (you probably won’t get stuck, but if you do, you can talk to a real human being on a real phone line about your problem).
Upon registering there’s a skippable initial video. AWeber has a bit more of a setup treatment than most ESPs; to obtain begun, you’ll need to fill out details including the business address you wish to feature on the bottom of e-mails, along with any customizations you want to make to AWeber’s basic opt-in verification message. As soon as you’ve finished those basic setups, you’ll be free to check out the program.
Okay, now if you want a success page which is not necessarily required but if you want a page that you sent people to after they confirm that banks them or give some the report that they may have signed up for, you can put the URL here. But that’s not necessarily something you have to do. I’m going to click on save settings. Once you’ve done that your list is actually all set up and now it’s time to create your autoresponder sequence.
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.
At the same time, AWeber is a well integrated system that blends easily in every software ecosystem. You can use it seamlessly with platforms such as Cyfe, Launch Effect, Drupal, WordPress, Raven, Unbounce, Magento, and many more. The system is reasonably priced, to say at least, and therefore accessible to companies with smaller and larger number of subscribers. Plans start from $19 per month for 500 subscribers, and move to $149 for 10,000 of them. Teams with more than 25,000 subscribers should contact the company to obtain a special quote.

“Mailchimp was great when I just had a blog. Now that I have my book, I’m starting to have products, it’s more of a business. I didn’t think that Mailchimp could handle me. I needed something a little more versatile that could target the people that I sent things to depending on what list they were on or what they clicked. It needed to be a little more sophisticated for me. That’s why I needed to switch over.”
