Do you use the AWeber newsletter platform for marketing and communications? If so, you can integrate a countdown timer with AWeber to encourage readers to take action and ensure they don’t miss out on upcoming deals or events.
AWeber is the number one choice for marketers who want to send regular emails with deals and events information to their target audience. It is also the most popular choice for marketing and communications agencies who need a simple way to send out daily or weekly newsletters.
AWeber provides a wealth of features and options, making it simple to set up and manage. In this blog post, you will learn about how to use the AWeber countdown timer to encourage subscribers to take action.
The Basics of AWeber Countdown Timer
To set up the AWeber countdown timer, you will need to enter a few details about your email marketing activities. This includes the email list you wish to use, the goal for the campaign (i.e. how many people you want to reach), and the type of content you will use (i.e. promotional offers, news stories, etc.).
Once you have entered this information, click the Get Started button to continue to the next page. Next, you will need to choose how frequently you want to receive the emails (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly) and the time of day you would like them to be sent out (i.e. morning, afternoon, or evening).
To begin, set up a weekly email with the date when the campaign will start and end (i.e. Monday at 12 p.m. to Sunday at 12 p.m.). This will be the basis of your campaign. Keep in mind the end date or you may end up sending out content that is already outdated.
Advanced Options For AWeber Countdown Timer
If you want to make the most out of your AWeber countdown timer, you can take advantage of the advanced options available. From the Weekly email layout to the subject lines and content within the emails, you have a lot of control over the look and feel of your campaign. To access these options, click the gear icon in the upper right hand corner of the Get Started page and select Manage Campaign.
Next, you will need to enter a description for your campaign (i.e. “My Weekly Marketing Campaign”).
On the Weekly email settings page, you have the option to add a description for the campaign, select a time zone, set the number of days per week the campaign will run, and choose how you want to receive the emails (i.e. either individually or as a bulk email).
To set up the individual receive mode, enter the email addresses of the contacts you wish to receive the emails individually and then click the Submit Changes button.
Additional Useful Tips For AWeber Countdown Timer
While the set-up process for your AWeber countdown timer may seem simple, there are a few other useful tips you should keep in mind. For example, you may want to consider sending out a reminder email a few days before the end of your campaign to remind your contacts that it is time to stop participating in your campaign.
You can also choose to either use a pre-set email template or create your own template for the countdown emails. If you go with the pre-set option, you can only select from a handful of email templates provided by AWeber. However, if you create your own, you have much more freedom and can use a design that is more fitting for your needs.
Last, you may want to schedule your campaign to either start at a specific date or let it run continuously until you choose to end it. When you choose the continuous option, you have the option of either setting a daily period or choosing a time when the campaign will end.
To set the end date for your continuous campaign, simply choose a day in the near future and the campaign will continue until that day.
