So, the automated email campaigns is a big part of it, but then, of course, you can send your one-time email broadcasts. So, one-time email newsletters, some people do that weekly, monthly, whatever cadence you prefer. Some people do it daily, to be honest. So, you can use AWeber, both as your automated email platform, and then also your one-time email sending platform as well. We have a couple mobile apps, that help support all of those functions. We also have web forms that you can create, put on your site to get subscribers, and a ton of integrations. So, if you want to integrate with your landing page provider, like an Unbounce, you can do that easily.
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.
Six tabs along the top of the screen direct you to Home, Messages, Customers, Sign Up Forms, Reports, and List Options. Some of these have drop-down choices. Links to My Lists, My Apps, and Assist, along with My Account, can be found in the upper right-hand corner. Your web page is an account introduction which displays brand-new customers, set up and just recently sent out messages, and list stats

Tom: Yeah, absolutely. So, I’m not gonna list all of our competitors. I think most people know who the most popular email service provers are out there. A few of them have been around as long as we have been, right? So, I think most people will know who those competitors are so, I’m not gonna dump a bunch of names. What you mentioned earlier, I thought was a good point, is that some email service providers that you’ve might have just begun using, they were practically created yesterday so, this is a very competitive space where there are new players popping up, it seems almost every six months. Also, a lot of tools that you might use, they bolt on an email component so, there’ll be a tool that provides this feature or functionality and then they’ll say, “Oh by the way, we’re gonna start doing email so you can use our tool to send emails as well.” Even WordPress, there are WordPress plugins that let you basically do some form of email marketing using your WordPress host. Like, whatever you’re using to host with WordPress. All of those solutions have pros and cons. What I would recommend when evaluating AWeber, what you’re gonna get is, somebody who is fully dedicated to just email.


Because of its history, AWeber should appeal to a very wide group of users. Someone who has never used an automated email service will enjoy the basic interface, while someone who may not have used one for years may still be able to know how it all works. If you're looking for an easy simple way to manage your newsletter distribution and subscriber list, then AWeber is the tool you should use.
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.
You have to let AWeber know from where your subscribers came—whether they signed up on a form, bought a product and opted to receive mail, or gave verbal agreement. AWeber also wants to know whether the list is being moved from another mail marketing provider. The goal is to verify you aren't spamming or buying lists. AWeber auto-creates a confirmation message, which is sent to contacts to verify their subscription. Like GetResponse, AWeber doesn't allow disposable domains, such as Mailinator addresses. I just wish this had been explicitly communicated. I uploaded a file containing regular addresses as well as Mailinator ones and waited for the import file to be reviewed and confirmed by Aweber. I never saw an error message informing me that the addresses were rejected, making me think the site was just slow. There was nothing in the import history log, either. When I tried the import without Mailinator addresses, it took just a few minutes.

Besides templates, editing options and strong support, it can host or import email databases; allow autoresponder customization; responsive email design, RSS and email-to-blog functionality; tools to collect and add new names/emails to databases; the ability to integrate with some other programs, and the ability to easily view analytics and performance results.

This software application was the slowest for filling customers one at a time or by importing a list. Plan extra time for contacts to be processed, especially if you have a large list. You can not segment lists, although you can tag contacts and use those tags to send out projects to different subscribers. You can create a sign-up type quickly. It used templates and the ability to add custom-made fields.

Overall, Aweber delivers on it's promises, customer service is top-notch as well. I currently signed up for their affiliate marketing, I would recommend it to my audience. 8/10, that's my personal rating.I like the high level of deliver-ability from Awebers' server(s), emails deliver to inbox almost all the time, so long you check for spam trigger words. I have been using Aweber for over 6 months now, and I think it's a great value for money. It has all the essential features anyone would need to grow their business online.
Okay, so once the settings are saved click on confirm often. And this is the message people will receive when they opt in to your list. So you can modify this however you want and generally the one that’s here, that’s Aweber gives you is actually pretty high converting. Okay, but you can always change it like to whatever you want. You can insert the person’s name if you have that as part of your e-mail opt in form. Their first name, their e-mail, whatever that you want to add.
The privately held company was founded in 1998 by CEO Tom Kulzer. Tom began his career in software engineering, but identified a gap in automated response software for sales leads and customer support. Tom addressed that opportunity by building an “automated web assistant”, which is now known as AWeber.AWeber can be seen as the original autoresponder software and has now grown to service over 120,000 customers in its 15 years as a privately held company.
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.AWeber provides a simple interface which is easy to manage, and they also provide a large array of tutorials to help make the learning process a bit easier. The templates they provide are also of grat value as well. Tracking subscriber behavior and data is a huge bonus to help improve your conversions. A free 30-day trial is always a huge bonus as well.
Tom: Yeah, totally. So, I host our podcast so, I’m so used to giving this pitch, over and over again. But, I like to basically start by saying, “AWeber is an email service provider, first and foremost. We were founded in 1998, so I think that’s kind of important, the legacy behind it. In addition to providing the best in class email automation email marketing toolset, we also really pride ourselves in delivering award-winning customer service, some of the best educational resources to help you be a better email marketer.”
One minor gripe I have however regarding the responsive designs is that to preview them you’ll actually have to send a test email to a smartphone. On other platforms you can usually just hit a ‘preview on phone’ button or similar. The lack of this functionality is not a dealbreaker by any means, but it does slow you down a bit, particularly if you are sending a lot of campaigns every month.
