AWeber: What’s the Correct Charge for Unsubscribed Email?

When you subscribe to a list through AWeber, you’ll start receiving emails from the list owner. If you choose, you can unsubscribe from those emails at any time — but the list owner may ask you to verify your subscription first.

Most people mistakenly believe that unsubscribing from a list means that they’ll stop receiving emails from the list owner. Not so! When you unsubscribe, you’re just telling the list owner that you don’t want to receive their emails anymore — but you still have to pay for those you’ve received already.

Here’s how it works. When you subscribe to an AWeber list, you’ll see a small green triangle with an “X” in the upper left-hand corner next to your email address. That’s your verification link. When you click it, you’ll be taken to a page that asks you to confirm your subscription. If you confirm, you’ll see a green checkmark next to your email address.

If you decide that you’d like to continue to receive emails from the list owner, simply click the unsubscribe button on the email you received. Alternatively, you can visit your account settings page and unsubscribe from all lists from there. When you confirm your subscription, you’ll see a blue checkmark next to your email address.

What Should I Charge for Unsubscribed Email?

It’s important to set a proper price for your product or service. For instance, if you’re an expert online marketer and you build and sell websites for a living, you might want to set your price at $10,000 or $20,000 per year. On the other hand, if you’re a virtual assistant who sets up phone calls with customers and connects them with other professionals as needed, you might want to set your price at $25 per hour.

You need to enter the proper value for this service in your Pricing page in your AWeber dashboard. If you have more than one product or service to sell, you can use the Multiple Products or Services field to make it easier for customers to find your pricing information.

Should I Charge More or Less Than What I Charged For My Product?

When you first get started, it’s a good idea to price your product or service at a lower cost to attract as many customers as possible. Once you’ve gained some experience and established a good reputation, you can raise your prices a bit to retain more customers and make more money.

In most cases, you’ll want to price your product or service based on the value it provides to the customer. If you provide significant value, customers will naturally be willing to pay more for your product or service. Conversely, if you provide minimal value, customers will be driven to competitors who provide more value for the same price or a lower price.

How Long Does It Take To Terminate My Subscription?

The number of email addresses on your list determines how long it will take to terminate your subscription. If you have a small list (under 500 email addresses), you might want to consider paying either annually or monthly. This way, you can cancel at any time and the customer won’t be charged for the coming month.

If you have a large list (over 500 addresses), it might be better to consider paying only once to maintain the subscription. As subscribers delete their accounts and individuals unsubscribe, your list will shrink and you’ll have to renew your contract every year.

How Long Does It Take To Receive A Reminder Message?

When you sign up for an AWeber account, you’ll automatically get a reminder message each week. You can also ask the owner of the list to remind you via email a few days before the due date.

If you have more than one product or service to sell through AWeber, you can set up special email messages to remind customers of upcoming deadlines or sales events. You can also use the Reminder Options field to make it easier for customers to follow your instructions. For example, let’s say that you’re an e-commerce store owner who is using AWeber to conduct email marketing. You can set up a special reminder message for customers who are about to purchase a certain product that you’re promoting. When they click on that message, they’ll be brought to the checkout page for the product. The more you use Reminder Options, the better it will function — so make sure you experiment with those emails until you find the one that drives the most conversions.

Where Can I Get Help?

You can get help from two places: 1) the AWeber community forums in the LinkedIn group or 2) your local library. The former is a good place to get help from other marketers who are also trying to figure out the correct price for their product or service. The latter is a great place to find the books that can help you solve your problems — in most cases, you won’t need more than one or two to start with.

If neither of those options sound good to you, then consider creating a quick Youtube video explaining your situation and the steps you’ve taken thus far. Search for “marketing advice” or “marketing ideas” and you’ll find a variety of short video tutorials that can help you figure out the right price for your product.

Sometimes the simplest answers are the most effective. So instead of guessing or trying to figure it out yourself, why not ask a simple question?
