Why choose AWeber?

For many years, I was using a very expensive email marketing program (it was costing me upwards of $200 per month). I’m sorry, but I just couldn’t  justify spending that kind of money to send emails when children need fresh water and food all around the world.  In my heart, I would much rather donate my money to help someone else than throw it out the window like that.

The search began, which included asking other marketers for recommendations. I’m a member of the Wealthy Affiliate University as a Premium member, and as such, I have access to thousands of other marketers, which gives me a wealth of information at my fingertips. I kept hearing about the AWeber platform for email marketing campaigns.

It was when I signed up for the Clickbank University (so I could write a review on their program first-hand) that I was once again directed to the AWeber program. Clickbank U recommends AWeber and does all their training using the platform.

When I went to the platform, I discovered that I could sign up and get a month trial absolutely free. I thought that was great, because it gave me a chance to really try it out before I canceled my other expensive program.

Learning to use AWeber

To say I am a busy internet marketer is an understatement.  I have several websites I run, and I teach marketing to my students as well. I don’t have time for a big learning curve, so part of my “vetting” of the AWeber platform was just how easy it was to learn how to use.

Here’s what I discovered! A whole learning library!  You can search anything you need, check it out:

 

There is even a signup available to get email tips delivered right to my inbox which will give me up-to-date information on the program and best practices and new ideas to keep my emails fresh. I love that!

 

Here is a screenshot of the beginning of one of the training modules so you can see what I mean. They give you instructions literally step-by-step! Anyone can do it! It’s super easy!

Setting up campaigns

What is a campaign, you ask? Oh, I’m so glad you did! Ok, let me tell you about this “build it and forget it” strategy. Campaigns help you automate your business into a money-making machine! Once you build it, it works in the background while you do other things.

A campaign is a series of emails that are sent to your list over time. You set these emails up once, and then here is how it works:

A) You capture an email on a “squeeze page” (see explanation of squeeze page below).

B) The AWeber system sends them an email with their free report or whatever you used to get their email address.

Automation Begins

C) The AWeber system automatically sends out an informational email to the person a few days later, maybe asking how they liked the free report you sent to them. You provide some value to the person, but you don’t try to sell them anything.

D) A few days later, you send another meaty informational email giving great value to the reader. Your whole goal is to build rapport with the person and let them see that you are knowledgeable in the niche.

E) Next, you send them an email and make them an offer. Perhaps it’s a product that you think someone in your niche could really use, and what you send will depend on how you captured the email. If it was an article on a free report on the healthiest dog treats to feed your dog, then your email should offer a variety of dog treats they can buy.

F) Your next email will depend on their action in the last one. Did they click on the link to go to the buy page? If they did, your campaign would apply a “tag” to the person, and it would trigger your next email can ask if they purchased, you saw they clicked on the link. What did they think? Is there anything else you can offer them, etc?

G) If they did not click on the link, your next email could send them the same offer with maybe another offer. You could ask them to let you know if there is anything else they might be interested in, or if they would like you to write an article on any other aspect of healthy nutrition for dogs, etc.

Squeeze pages

How do you get people to sign up for your information? You do it with a Squeeze Page! This is a page that offers something of value to the reader if they put in their name and their email.

It’s simple. You simply offer a free report which gives your reader information you think they would want. Here’s the thing, I know about this program you can sign up for that will actually take a blog post you’ve already created and turn it into a beautiful ebook with a few clicks. How easy is that? You can also create ebooks from scratch if you prefer.

The program is called Designrr, and you can check it out here: DESIGNRR EBOOK CREATOR

Here’s a sample squeeze page:

  1. Hi Babs, I’m using Aweber as well and I love its simplicity. It’s really easy to use even for beginners (I never tried any email marketing program before, so I had no idea about how they work). But their guide really helped me out and I managed to create some campaigns in a few weeks. 

    I also love their free trail, which allowed me to test it first and see whether it’s worth the money or not – but it really was. 

    The only problem I had was integrating the form within my website. They recommend using a certain plugin but it didn’t really work (maybe it was something wrong with my website). I ended up using a form from MailChimp and I simply integrated it in my Aweber (I wanted a form that would look like a top bar, which Aweber didn’t have). 

    Anyway – I personally think that for the money it costs, Aweber is so worth buying. You can get a profit immediately, even from the first days using it. So I agree with your recommending it.

  2. This is interesting, as I haven’t yet ventured into email marketing. To me, it’s still a bit mystery and seems like a huge project to learn, but I’m pretty sure I’ll need it at some point. I’m relatively new to affiliate marketing, so it all seems overwhelming at first. I have heard of Aweber, though. Glad I came across this, because now I have a better idea what they’re about and how I might be able to use it. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Hey there,

    I’ve really enjoyed reading this article as you’ve provided us with tons of valuable information on AWeber. I’m currently a member with them because right now, I’m focusing on email marketing to scale my online business. From my personal experience, I think that they are the best email marketing training platform which charge an affordable price, and they provided you with step-by-step instructions on how to get started with things. It’s an amazing platform for beginners and for advanced email marketers.

    Thanks a lot for taking your precious time in writing this detailed post. Keep up the good work!

    1. Yes, I had a very expensive and sophisticated program previously, but it was super expensive.  This program does a lot of the same things, and it’s about 1/8th of the price monthly.   – Babs

  4. Of course there’s more. A lot more.

    And yes, I do use some of these features and should be using the rest  maybe writing about them will find prompt me to sit down and make my great auto responder even better.

    However, at this point let me take a moment to tell you to just go and get it, it could be reviewing this forever, but the bottom line is this  you need one, this is the best one

  5. Hi i have just signed up to an affiliate program i no very little about computers but i can see there has to be something in all these sites i have been trying to make money online for what seems ages now i like the way this site is set up but i have to say like most sites on the internet they always seem to no how to get you to part with your hard earned cash in my small amount of experience 20 years of fumbling around the internet trying all these sites say the same old things try this its free but when you start that’s when they have you and you always spend money before you make any and it doesn’t matter what site it is it is always the same when will there be a site you earn before you spend that is what i would like to see

    1. Peter, I can tell you that AWeber is very inexpensive. It has a free trial, and yes, then you do pay, but for what you get it’s got a lot of value. There aren’t any free email marketing campaign programs that I know of. ~ Babs

  6. this is the first time i have come across a weber and it seems to be a wonderfull email marketing plat form. or sure i have not yet got any email marketing platorm yet but thanks to you i think i should give it a try how ever after the one month trial what is the cost of the anual subscription thats if its not so costly

    thanks

    1. You can go monthly for only $19 a month, quarterly for $32.67 the first month and $49 quarterly after that, or yearly for $177.65 the first year and $194 annually after that, if you sign up through my link and take advantage of the discounts.  AWEBER SIGN UP PAGE FOR DISCOUNT

  7. Thank you so much for this wonderful information. Aweber is an email marketing platform where you can create unique, beautiful, professional email campaigns that you can set: automated email service provider. I learnt about it when I started my affiliate marketing journey years back but I don’t have detailed information about it like this you put together here! I will go and get it set up again. I really don’t know a free trial is available thank you for sharing this information.

    i look forward to reading this type of information on this page.

    1. Yes, they do offer a chance to try it for free.  That, to me, is the first sign of a great program!  – Babs

  8. Email marketing is one of the top leading way of turning your visitors/ traffic into customers. Have heard of Aweber so many times but I was scared of giving it a try because of my past experience with one of the email marketing program I used. It was terrible, the customer support is no where to be found and I get debited monthly,I was so pissed I had to change my card and stop the payment. Since then have been searching for another program I can use, I think I will check the 30 days trial and see how the service works. But from your post,no doubt aweber must be a great platform. Promise to share my feedback when done with you

    .

  9. Hi Babs! I have been searching for a good autoresponders. I know that if I’m not using email marketing, I’m leaving money on the counter.

    I have read quite a few reviews about AWeber. And they all highlight the fact that it’s really easy to use. I have discovered from your post that they are constantly updating us with tips and fresh ideas to improve our email marketing campaigns. But what has really made me start seriously considering joining AWeber is it’s 30 days free trial. I have nothing to lose, so I may as well give it a try!

    1. That’s great, Henry!  I hope you like it!  Let me know if you have any questions when you sign up  – Babs

  10. Hello,

    I am very new to email marketing and have recently joined the Wealthy Affiliate community and learned about affiliate marketing, so I think email marketing will definitely benefit at some point to my website. 

    You provided with so many details and information about AWeber. It seems is very easy to use, with guidance to help you out and step-by-step instructions. For me, it’s easier when the tasks are divided in small parts when using a new platform I am unfamiliar with and I think I could adapt well to AWeber. After reading your post, I am looking forward to try it out myself and learn more about email marketing.

    Thank you for letting me know about AWeber. 

    All the best,

    Mariana

    1. You’re welcome, Mariana!  If you are new to email marketing, this is the platform for you due to the extensive training to get you going.  It’s easy to follow for those not familiar!  – Babs

  11. Thank you for the timely information. I have partially built my first website and I am about to enter the phase of social media and email. I was wondering what would be the best approach to an email campaign. Certainly having a tool like aweber could be the solution I am looking for. Thank you again.

    1. If you just started your website, and you are part of the Wealthy Affiliate program, then they train you to follow the program.  Email marketing is something you will be doing later down the road.  You can bookmark this page and come back to it when you’re ready.  Don’t load up your plate.  Have patience and follow the program.  Believe me, these guys are smart!   – Babs

  12. Dear Babs,

    Thanks a lot for the informative and helpful article.

    Being a full-time Affiliate Marketer this post means a lot to me because very recently I realized the importance of email marketing all the experts are advising that “Money is in the list”. So I am thinking to focus on email marketing and finding hard to choose the right Autoresponder and your post gave me helpful insights about Aweber.

    Its been said Aweber Autoresponder is the best and friendly one for Affiliate Marketers.

    You have given enough reasons on WHY we need to use Aweber and your walk-through on how it works is very helpful.

    30 day free trial is just like icing on the cake and nothing to lose, so for sure Aweber is on my list and will give it a try.

    Much Success!

    Paul

  13. After reading your article I learned about AWeber and found out that I can get free 30 day trials through my site here. I had no idea about this, I was scared about not knowing this. But from your post you can find that aweber is a great platform. Thank you so much for sharing your post with AWeber

    1. The 30 day trial is plenty of time to try all the features and make sure it works for you like it does for me!  – Babs

  14. Thanks for writing this review on AWeber, I must say you really tried by taking your time to write this review. am sure it going to help many to make a decision.   Some of the things I like about AWeber is that You can use it to manage contacts in a flexible and effective way, create successful and visually attractive campaigns, create personalized subscriber lists.this is some of this things I do on it.

  15. Hey Babs,

    I am really inspired by reading your informative and educational reviews on AWEBER. Even though I’m listening about it first time, after reading the review it seems a suitable platform for email marketing. Hopefully, within a few days, I’ll try its trial version. I’ll also share about the AWEBER with friends.  
    Thank you sincerely for the valuable post.

    Best wishes,
    Rgpratap.

  16. I have heard using AWeber to send Blog updates to my customers on a scheduled basis would be beneficial, profitable and would help retain readers.This is just what I am looking for since it will automate work efficiently and will save me a ton of time and hassle!! I have twins also.Thank you Babs!! 

    1. Another twins mom!  That’s great!  There’s a blogger online who goes by TwinMommy and she’s pretty cool.  We should have a club!  – Babs

  17. Though I own a niche website, I don’t have any email marketing ideas not set any one up. But with AWeber and the fact that they offer 1 month free, I can get to use it.

    The good thing about your review is that I can personally use it to set up my own email marketing with AWeber, and also give back to you by registering through your affiliate.

    Thank you for this review.

    1. I’m very impressed with the program, and I do like that you can try it for a month.  Give it a try!  – Babs

  18. this is the first time I will be reading a fully detailed article on AWeber and it seems to be a resourceful email marketing service. Thanks to you i think I have a full grip  on email marketing and how it can help me earn from my Affiliate program I should give it a try after the one month trial what is the cost of the annual subscription fee.  

    1. Salim, it is a very great program, easy to use, and great for someone who is new.  It’s very inexpensive.  ~ Babs

  19. I’m fairly new to affiliate marketing and I don’t have an email campaign as yet. I don’t have a newsletter or anything like that to offer so I don’t even know where to begin with that. As I continue my affiliate education I may come back to this solution because it looks like a great time saver. 

  20. Okay so I can bump myself in the head, I just commented on how well your other article was then move around your site a bit and find this, which was one of my topics. You’re really on the money with your teachings. Thanks for all the information. I will have to try.

    1. You’re kind to say that, Melissa!  I appreciate it!  I’m always trying to provide great programs of value for you!  ~ Babs

  21. This all looks great and I have been considering something like this for a while.  This is where I am stuck.  I have a beach travel site, and I am not sure what I would put in my email campaign.  I don’t really have a product per se.  Any ideas on this?  Sounds like something I need to try and boost my sales, I am just not sure how to go about it. 

    1. I’m not sure in beach travel.  I would say look around at other beach travel sites and see what types of products and/or services they are promoting, and then set up affiliate agreements with those companies yourself.  You can also contact the owners of the other blogs and ask them what products and/or services are their best sellers as well.  Hopefully they will be honest with you.  You can also think about what you use when you beach travel.  What products or services are important to you in that regard, and contact various companies of products you use yourself that you find valuable.  ~ Babs

  22. Hello Babs, thank you so much for this post on Aweber. I am still a rookie affiliate marketer and my upliner has already suggested Email marketing to me which I still find myself very clueless about even after reading a ton of posts on it. Though, I heard that its a bit of a necessity to affiliate marketers to use email as a marketing tool. I think with what I have read in this post, Aweber should be a great platform to start from. I will definitely check it out sometimes soon

    1. I recently started email marketing, and I do need to devote more time to setting up the process.  I will be writing more articles as I go through the steps to set that up to show people how it’s done.  ~ Babs

  23. Thanks for this illustrative article and I think I’m going back to AWeber after hopping from different autoresponder services. I think AWeber has it all now as you have mentioned here that you can now build squeeze pages. Am I right with that one?

    It is the issue of building squeeze pages that I left AWeber in the past and transferred to GetResponse as they include building landing pages. Now that you have mentioned about squeeze pages, I think it’s time for me to go back to AWeber. I love its high deliverability rate!

  24. Hello Babs…I’m really grateful to you and your posts, theyre all very informative and they help me to learn one or two things everytime I come here. Aweber sounds like a really great platform for those who want to venture into email marketing. I have not  decided on that type of marketing yet because it sounds abit complicated but with what I just read, maybe Aweber will help regulate the complications. I’ve used designrr a couple of times before though and it’s really cool. Thanks again and I’m really grateful.

    1. If you ever need help, please feel free to reach out to me.  I’m not a big expert in email marketing, but I’ve learned my way around, and I’d be glad to share what I know about it.  I think it’s really important for success!  ~ Babs

  25. Hi Babe Great post about Weber.  I had not heard of this program before so I was naturally interested in reading your informative post.  I like the fact that it is a great tool to use for an affiliate marketing business, something that I would like to explore.  I also like that there is a free trial and the cost is inexpensive.  I appreciate your extensive review and I hope to check it out soon.  Thank. you for the information.  

    1. In my opinion, you can’t go wrong with a free trial, especially with this because if you like it, like you said, it’s super inexpensive to continue.  (Psst you’ll want to continue once you try it!)  ~ Babs
