When most bloggers think about building an email list, the first email service that comes to mind is AWeber. Of course there are other options available, and it's not my intention to debate the pros and cons of other popular email delivery services in this post. AWeber was an obvious choice for me, or anyone who wants to sell affiliate products while they are in the early stages of list building.
Before I go any further, I would like to take this time to thank each and every one who has subscribed to my mailing list and express to you how much I appreciate your emails, questions and feedback. Don't hesitate to respond to any of my broadcasts if you ever have a question or need my assistance. If you haven't signed up yet, here's the link.
AWeber Email Management Tips
One of the reasons AWeber has become so popular with many bloggers and small business owners has to do with the flexibility of the platform and auto-responder features. I first heard about the auto-responder sequence from Josh Zamora when did a guest post here.
You should read this one when you're done reading this one, it's called The Anatomy of a 25% Autoresponder Sequence. Josh shared some very effective strategies in that post that even got the attention of our friend Ana Hoffman from Traffic Generation Cafe. He subsequently did another post or her blog titled Simple Email Marketing Trick that will Skyrocket Your Open Rates. Josh's techniques for staggering the broadcast emails based on the optin dates are brilliant and AWeber has the perfect toolset to help us accomplish this task very easily.
AWeber Improves the Broadcast Editing Tool
The folks at Aweber are constantly coming up with innovative enhancements to their suite of services and the newest edition is the drag and drop editor. In this video, I demonstrate the new broadcast editor and all AWeber customers have access to it. Watch the AWeber Drag and Drop Broadcast Email Editor
Based on the feedback from a previous post, I wanted to do a few AWeber tutorials. In this one I take you step-by-step through the process of creating an email with the drag-and-drop editor. I hope this clears up any confusion you might have. Continue to give me your feedback, it's much appreciated.
Now that you've watched the demo, tell me what you think of this new drag-and-drop editor. What do you think about AWeber vs MailChimp or compared to other email service providers like Constant Contact?
