AWeber Addons: What You Need to Know Before You Choose One

If you use AWeber to promote your podcast, you’ll want to ensure that you make the right decisions when it comes to selecting the right plugins and themes to enhance your experience. Luckily, the guys at WebmasterWorld were able to put together a guide on AWeber Addons for podcast owners, podcasters, and bloggers – to help you choose the right tools for the job.

The Basics

To get started, it’s important to understand the basics – what are addons, what do they do, and how do they work. Addons are extensions or modifications made to the default features of AWeber. They can range from simple formatting tools (allowing you to make text smaller or more compact) to more advanced features (like social media share buttons or a custom header).

With extensions, you have the ability to completely change the look and feel of your AWeber dashboard. If you have a specific look and feel you want for your site – maybe you want your website to look like an eCommerce store, a news organization, or a blog – then using extensions is the way to go. Some extensions can be a bit tricky to install, but once you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t install them sooner.

Consider Your Needs

When deciding what extensions to choose, it’s important to consider your needs. Do you need a simple header for your blog post that’s already been published? Or, do you need to add a bit more oomph to your next podcast episode and want to add a few more social media share buttons?

When choosing extensions, you need to ask yourself these questions:

  • What are my goals?
  • What do I want to see when I look at my dashboard?
  • Is this extension easy to use?
  • How much data can I handle?
  • How much storage space do I have?
  • How much money can I spend?

To find the right extension for your needs, you need to set a few parameters. First, find the extension that works best for you based on size. There are several extensions designed for smaller sites (typically under 5 MB per file) that will serve you well if you’re looking for a simple and quick way to get started with social media sharing. Alternatively, there are larger extensions that can give you more features – but at the cost of a bit more storage space (which can run up to 20 MB per file).

Storage Space And Money

One of the biggest considerations when choosing an extension is storage space and money. You don’t want to choose an extension that requires you to upload large files to your server every time you want to use it, especially if you’re running a small blog. Instead, you want to choose extensions that will not impact your server’s storage space. This way, you can simply upload the extension whenever you need it and it will work – without risking your blog’s performance due to excessive file sizes. This also applies if you decide to upgrade your blog’s storage space in the future. You don’t want to choose an extension that will not be supported or make it difficult to upgrade your server’s storage space. Finally, you want to make sure that you have the money to pay for the extension – if you don’t then chances are you won’t end up using it.

Additional Considerations

Once you’ve decided on the basics, it’s time to move on to some of the questions that are a bit more complicated. For example, do you want to use social media share buttons or do you want to create your own share buttons? Do you want to use an email list or do you want to go the social media route?

You need to consider these questions as well because they can help you choose the right extension for your needs. For example, if you have a big social media presence but you don’t want to use the share buttons that are already built into AWeber, then you could choose to use social media cards instead. These cards will give you all of the social media sharing you could want without having to worry about overusing the built-in buttons.

In the end, it’s all about finding the right fit. There are several extensions that can help you make your podcasting experience easier and more enjoyable. Simply find one that suits your needs and you’ll be able to enjoy your work without worry.
