Make sure subscribers never miss a thing with one-time broadcast emails like newsletters and product promos. Mobile-ready templates enable users to send on-brand email newsletters to the entire contact list. Blog broadcasts extend the business's blog’s reach by automatically converting the latest posts into emails. Users can schedule broadcasts to send immediately after publishing, at a custom time or after a group of posts have been published.
What is so important about API’s? Well, if you ever go to sell a product/service…EVERYTHING. If you sell a product, it is so much easier to use a system which automatically adds the people to an email list, without them having to re-enter their name/email to be able to proceed. You usually see this with a “Step 2 of completing Your Order” page and it has an optin form.
George: So, I love it because this is literally what happened people, is that I set the ball up, and he was gonna spike it, and he kind of tapped it. It hit the top of the net, and he saw that it was wobbling back and forth, I was like, “I’m not sure if we’re gonna win this game.”, and then you said one thing, Tom. And I was like, “He just spiked the ball.” That was, that Tom mentioned education, that they’re always creating content, that they have live support, that they’re there to help, and so that was super awesome. Now, as I’ve traveled through the interwebs, there are two types of people that I’ve found. There are those people who, they just get it. Like, they’re technically savvy. And then there are those folks that well, not so much. So, as a first time user to AWeber, what are some of the problems, or a problem that I might run into that will kind of perplex me, and what have you guys done internally, to try to not have that moment happen?

I’m really using it to develop relationships with my existing and potential customers in my field (physical WordPress training courses for beginners) by providing useful hints and tips. I’m sure I will introduce ‘offers’ for them to buy additional services from me (and affiliate products) in the not too distant future, but for now I’m concentrating on getting them to love me! 🙂
I've tried various email services multiple times, but I feel the most drawn to Aweber. I like the ease of their email editor. I also like how easy it is to change the order of my legacy follow-up series by simply dragging & dropping the emails in whatever order I wish on the fly. Yes, Aweber is a little more expensive than some other platforms, but I'd rather pay a bit more for something that fits my needs than to be irritated all the time.
Automatically adding new customers to your AWeber mailing lists, lets you have more time to focus on communicating with customers rather than email list management! After you set up this Stripe AWeber integration, every time there is a new Stripe customer, a subscriber is created in an AWeber mailing list. Get ready for an easier to manage email list.
George: Hey ladies and gentlemen, it’s George B. Thomas here, and you know what I’m about to say. Yep, I’m excited because it’s time for another episode of One Last Tool. One Last Tool viewers and listeners, this one’s gonna be good because we’re gonna talk about all things nerdy, all things webby, all things a-er. Anyway, maybe you’ll put it together. But, I’m sure, once you see who we have today … hey, why don’t you go ahead, let’s get out of suspense mode, and explain to the listeners and viewers, Tom, who you are, what you do, and who you do it for?
Tom: Yeah so, I think one of the problems that we see with AWeber, is because we are an older piece of software. We’ve been around since ’98. When you log in, there’s so much that you can do, because we have a lot of different features, right? So, you can either draft your first one time email, you can jump right in and set up your automated campaign, you can create your sign up form, you can import your subscribers from another ESP, or if you have another list somewhere else. So, it’s kind of a, “Choose your own adventure” that happens when you first log in and you set up that initial account. So, I think for customers who may be overwhelmed with email marketing and kind of the, “where should I go on the map?”, type of feeling, what we’ve done is, we have basically an onboarding email series that drips out over the course of 30 days during your free trial.
Okay, so you’ll be surprised that even though it looks good right here you can get some funky looking e-mails in real life and in an actual e-mail inbox and especially links can be wrong sometimes. So you definitely want to test every e-mail before officially adding it to your autoresponder sequence. But if you go to check your e-mail and everything looks good, click on back, then click on settings. Okay this will determine when the e-mail goes out and in this case because it’s your first e-mail, it goes out immediately after the person confirms. Okay, so that’s automatic for the first e-mail and once that’s done click on save and exit. And you’ll get the message that your message has been saved and here is the first e-mail.
I've used quite a few other email platforms for mass emails and I have found that AWeber doesn't offer as much customization with creating emails. I like to create my own format for emails, and it's a little more difficult in AWeber than some other platforms. It's more of a basic service. I also am not impressed with the home page for the sole reason of not having the key things that I like to see when I first get to a landing page. This is more of a personal preference.
Run A/B tests to learn how word and design choices impact signups in order to do more of what works. Use email automation to send welcome emails, product launch sequences, email courses and more. Create sophisticated marketing funnels with the easy-to-use builder. To improve performance, use tags to segment subscribers based on the links they click and the emails they open and send the right message to the right person exactly when they need it.

Hi Reginald,Fantastic review! I am an Aweber user and will only say that I agree with all that you have written.I only wish that there had been such a concise rundown of the service when I was trying to decide what to use use.In any event, this review is is a wealth of information for someone looking to get serious about building and email list. If anyone ever questions me about email marketing service I will be directing them to this post!~D
Specifically Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, Zendesk, rocketmail.com, and ymail.com have updated their DMARC record. DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) is used by many major organizations and ISPs to help them identify issues with email authentication abuse. While using DMARC is great for reducing email abuse issues, changes like the one that Gmail, Yahoo!, AOL, Zendesk, rocketmail.com, and ymail.com have made will have a widespread impact on its users.
Marketer’s Choice (aka 1ShoppingCart.com) – this one is actually a great choice. However, it’s not a simple email autoresponder; it comes with a bunch of bells and whistles you probably don’t need just yet. Things like shopping cart, merchant account, affiliate platform, etc. For now, I suggest we stick with simple list building through an email autoresponder, shall we?

Pros: The singular thing I so much love about Aweber is their User Interface UI. It is so simple and straightforward. Everything you needed are at the right place. Their inbox rate in superb, from experience I normally have up to100% inbox rate. My list is less than 2000 subscribers but then I believe their system sends out emails as though it's sending directly to one person at a time. Their landing pages are simple and easy to customize. They have Javascript, plugins for different CMS and blogging platform and Html though I use the html mostly.
And now we need click the settings button at the top you’ll actually have a few more settings. So the interval is how many days the e-mail sent after the first one. So you have your first one, this is your second one. So if you want to send it two days later you can put two or three or 4 or 9 or whatever you want to do, there are different opinions about what is best. So leave that to the experts, but I prefer to send about one a week but most people send him more often in the beginning and then would people get into the habit of opening them they make them less frequent.
George: Okay? We’re gonna play a game of, “Interview Volley Ball”, and what I’m about to do is, I’m gonna set the ball up and then you’re gonna spike it. Okay? There are two questions, and I don’t want to take a break in between them. I’m just gonna give you the two questions and then you roll with it. We’re gonna be like Top Gun Maverick and Goose, we’re gonna be high-fiving because we’re gonna win the game here. That’s simply this, “When you look at the space, who is AWeber’s competitors?”, and then the spike for you is, “What in the world makes AWeber better than them?”
Watch out for the $29 report on how to develop an email marketing strategy. It's really easy to click on the wrong thing when checking out and wind up with the report in your shopping cart. If do you wind up buying it by mistake or don't find it useful, AWeber promises to refund your money. There is no free trial or free version to test out the service—but AWeber does let you try out the software for just $1 during the first month. That's a good deal.

AWeber Communications, Inc. designs opt-in email marketing software for entrepreneurs and businesses worldwide. It was founded in 1998 by Tom Kulzer after he identified a gap in automated response software for customer support and sales leads. Tom capitalized on that opportunity by creating an “autoresponder software”, which is now popular as AWeber. Since then, AWeber has expanded into a team focused on helping more than 100,000 businesses achieve success with email.


Fantastic. I don't think i'll ever change autoresponder. I've tried GetResponse and others and they are also awesome, but I like the simplicity of Aweber so I don't really see why I would ever change.I've used Aweber since 2014, and i've NEVER had an issue with them. Sure, they have downtime just like every other autoresponder a couple times per year, but it's always fixed really quickly. The deliverability is awesome, it's extremely easy to use and their customer is support is insanely responsive. I have had to do a few minor changes to my account every now and then, I kid you not, they have taken care of my issues usually within 2-3 minutes of me opening up the chat (which is now open 24/7)

If businesses want to grow, they cannot ignore marketing. Thankfully, there are plenty of email marketing tools available to help even the smallest of small businesses get started. AWeber (which begins at $19 per month) is just such a choice, offering an easy-to-use platform with no hidden surprises. AWeber's templates simplify the process for creating visually attractive email marketing campaigns and the reporting dashboard tracks the most important basic statistics. It can't import contacts from Gmail or other third-party address books, nor does it offer Google Analytics integration. For better third-party contacts integration and tracking, you should consider Campaigner and MailChimp, our two Editors' Choices for email marketing tools. For this review, I signed up for AWeber's Basic plan.
The primary weak point I see is the price-point where small business are worried. If you do not require all of AWeber’s bells and whistles, there’s no need to pay for them. You’ll also want to make sure that if you are attempting to cancel your account, you’re not just unintentionally suspending it. This is specifically essential where the totally free trial is worried, as AWeber requires your credit card information.

The kind of reports they have is totally exhaustive. For example user country and region, how many and when users opens your sent email and which links were clicked and how many people reported spam to your email sent is something awesome. Using the reports now I know when does a user prefers to open the emails and I send them just before their preferred time so my viewership of email has also increased.
What AWeber has done especially well is develop a reputation of providing excellent support – while some users like nothing more than experimenting so they intuitively can try to make sense of everything on their own pace or customize like crazy, others appreciate the ability to receive help anytime from a real human through email, phone or live chat – especially if they’re hopelessly mired trying to send a message out to thousands of customers/prospects. (There’s also an online Knowledge Base plus a moderated official Facebook forum.)
I don’t plan to use Aweber with my new blog – at least not for the first few months, but thanks for the review. I might go with Mailchimp (I used to use it before, plus Mailchimp offers lot more features now – segmenting, reporting etc) or perhaps Benchmark email (heard about this service recently, still considering it), and switch over the Aweber once I have setup at least one source of income 😀
If your business is looking for more conversions, auto-responders play a good role. There are many tools for autoresponders that includes MailChimp, GetResponse to name a few. But there is one tool that is more popular and easy to use when it comes to creating autoresponders. That tool is AWeber and it is really efficient when it comes to email marketing services.
**A couple of things to consider are that they do not have a reseller program. If you want to use it for multiple clients, you'll need to run everything out of your account and separate it by lists. Also their mobile app isn't much help. You'll be running everything through the web interface. Finally, you should have a working knowledge of html coding if you're going to use it. You don't have to code to use it, but if you want to tweak the look and feel of it like a designer, you'll need to code to dial in what you want.

I have been using Aweber for the last six months and hadn’t really though of it as basic. But,when you see how much functionality is available with the other tools, I guess it is. I really like infusionsoft, but I don’t have the traffic or level of data to track ( as yet) to make an investment in a tool this complex right now. Really insightful article, thanks!
MailChimp pricing structure works in little increments and offers more in between payment options so there is more, you pay for what you want style pricing. Most people opt for Mailchimp seeing that it has a free version available, but that is not very viable because it lacks a very important feature, the autoresponders. So with each month, you find yourself adding more money while upgrading to get the basic or advanced autoresponders service, while Aweber can provide you those features without the additional payment. So Aweber pricing looks more competitive than Mailchimp.

Aweber lets you make signup forms with up to 25 fields of information, using either your own design or a pre-made template. Forms can be embedded into your site, turned into a landing page, and you can carry out A/B tests on them. It also integrates with Worpdress, Paypal and Facebook so you can add contact information from customers that already connect with you on these platforms. You can also use the mobile app to add subscribers on the go, for example at an event.
GetApp’s ranking highlights the top 25 apps in different categories on GetApp. If an app is listed in more than one category, it has the potential to be ranked in each of these categories. The ranking is independent of any commercial campaign an app vendor has with GetApp. The ranking is based on 5 data points, each scored out of 20: reviews, integrations, mobile apps, media presence, and security.
Comments: When you go with AWeber, you get the complete email managerial package. Simply, opt-in forms are available to embed in your website, which AWeber used to collect subscriber details. You can send out fully customizable emails manually or on an automated schedule. AWeber further allows you to segment your subscriber list down by subscriber behavior and even target content, allowing you to choose who gets what, and when. Tailoring your content to fit your subscribers is basically a gauranteed way to increase your views and subscriber base and conversion rates.
Double opt-in, however, ensures the emails you receive are valid and are not being used by bots and the like (remember, sending too many emails to dead email addresses is a sign of a spammer, and you do not want to be mistaken for a spammer). However, you can use tools like BriteVerify which automatically screen out fake addresses or mistakes at the point where the individual is signing up.
Being able to capture potential clients via email signups is huge for my consulting business. The analytics that allow me to see what the open rate, click through rate and sales made from emails I send to my list are super helpful. In the past year, I have been able to fine tune what my list is most responsive to because of the detailed analytics. This is useful for anyone wanting to grow and maintain their email list.

George: Well folks, you were this close to a ZZ Top edition of AWeber. Okay. Let’s go ahead and get into the content. Tom, I always love to start the show at a 50,000-foot view, where people can kind of wrap their arms around. If maybe they’re living under a rock and don’t know what AWeber is, why don’t you go ahead and take the time, just to explain really, what is AWeber?


People share their opinions about companies on Twitter each and every day. We monitor tweets about AWeber and apply a sentiment analysis algorithm that classifies these tweets as positive or negative. Every review is from a real person opinion. We use this information and output an approval rating score, which is based on real people, positive and negative, opinions about AWeber on Twitter
So the second one he might put three days later and then as you add more e-mail make them eight or even two weeks later. Okay? And understand window if you want to send them between certain dates for times to increase your open rate, you can do that. So slide this to on and then you can choose only send them on Mondays or Tuesdays between a certain time. And the reason that works really well is because people are more likely to check your e-mail at certain times.
