AWeber Communications is located right on the outskirts of Philadelphia and since the headquarters is only 15 minutes from my home, I signed up for a recent email marketing workshop. It was a real treat for me to visit AWeber, since I am a huge fan of their email marketing service, and it's always good to have face-to-face contact with people in the “real world” as much as possible. 🙂 I'm an even bigger fan of AWeber now that I got to see how much they care about their customers and this workshop is just one of many outreach events they have on their calendar.
Jay Moore the “Voice” of AWeber
One of the things that most impressed me most about AWeber when I signed up, is the extensive library of training videos they have in their knowledge base and on YouTube. The guy talking in most of those videos is none other than Jay Moore – and Jay is perfect for the job. Trust me, he has the same cool, friendly, intelligent, professional demeanor when you meet him in person – and his Power Point Presentation during the workshop was top notch!
We all got a chance to pick up some AWeber Schwag (you'll see what I mean in the video) which always makes me happy. All of the attendees (about 15 of us) got the opportunity to have our specific questions answered at the end of the presentation. We chatted one-on-one with an AWeber staff member and I tried to listen in on as many of those chats as I could. I certainly had my questions answered, and I even learned how to set up instant access to an optin freebie using my AWeber “welcome to my list” email.
Here's what Jay covered in the workshop:
- Initial list setup
- Editing your confirmation message
- Creating a welcome email
- Writing and scheduling a broadcast
- Importing subscribers
- Building a sign up form and getting it on your site
