How to Set Up AWeber Email Verification for Your List

You’ve probably heard of AWeber. This email marketing service, which was previously known as Active Email, is the standard among email marketing providers. If you’re looking to build or grow a list, then AWeber is the way to go. You can read our in-depth review of AWeber here if you’re interested.

While it’s pretty easy to get started with AWeber, customizing your email templates can be a pain. You can’t get any support from the platform if you’re not using their supplied templates. However, there is a workaround that allows you to get the most out of your AWeber account without paying for extra email designs.

Here’s how to set up AWeber email verification for your list.

Step 1: Go to your AWeber dashboard.

First of all, you need to log into your AWeber account. If you haven’t done so already, click the tab at the top that says My account. Then click the Tools button next to Settings.

From here, you can configure your email settings. The first thing you’ll need to do is confirm that you are using the correct email address. If you’ve recently changed your email address, then you’ll need to wait for the old address to be verified before you can use the new one.

Next, you’ll want to click Verification Email to set up email verification. You must have this enabled in order to receive emails from potential subscribers. When you do this, you’ll be prompted to enter a verification code that will be sent to the email address you provide. This is a security measure to protect you and your list from potential spam bots.

If you want to add a small twist to the email verification step, you can enable Single Opt-In. When this feature is activated, subscribers will only need to click one opt-in link in order to get added to your list. When you’re using AWeber for direct marketing, this feature can be extremely useful. You can ask anyone who’s used AWeber for marketing whether or not they thought this feature was worth the hassle. Most business owners would say no, but if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get a few dozen more subscribers on your list, then this is a feature you should consider.

Step 2: Create a new email template.

Once you’ve confirmed your email address and set up email verification, you’ll be able to create new email templates. From the My account dashboard, click Settings and then the Template dropdown menu.

Here, you can create and name a new email template. When a new subscriber signs up with your email address, they’ll receive this template. If you’ve used AWeber before, you know that it’s pretty easy to get distracted by all the options given at once. So rather than just creating a new template and naming it, I would recommend that you take your time and read the quick tutorial that AWeber provides on their website. It’s an easy way to learn the basics of email marketing with little to no prior experience.

Once you’ve finished reading the tutorial, you’ll be able to create your new email template with a click of a button.

Step 3: Assign the new email template to a campaign.

So you’ve created a new email template that you think will be useful for your organization. Now what?

You can assign the new email template to a campaign. AWeber calls these “engagement campaigns.” When you’re starting out, you might not have the money to spend on pricey Facebook ads and complicated SEO projects. That’s where these types of campaigns come in. If you want to engage with your audience, then you can use email marketing to do so. You can ask anyone who’s used AWeber for direct marketing whether or not they thought this feature was useful.

Once you’ve created a new email template, you can start your campaign by clicking Campaigns at the top of the dashboard. Once you’re on the campaign settings page, you can name the campaign and choose an email marketing platform (AWeber, MailChimp, or Infusionsoft).

From here, you can choose to run a free trial, in which case your campaign will already be set up and you can start sending emails to your list. Or you can click the Create button to get started with a paid plan. This is where you’ll need to enter your payment details.

Step 4: Confirm your payment details.

Once you’ve entered your payment details, you can click the Create button to get started. Now you’ll be asked to confirm your email address. If you’ve set up email verification, then you’ll be able to confirm your email address. Otherwise, you’ll need to input your email address manually.

Once you’ve confirmed your email address, you’ll be brought back to the Campaigns dashboard. You can now begin sending emails to your newly created list. Within the next few minutes, you’ll begin to receive feedback that your email marketing is going through.

You can also access your campaign’s performance from here. You’ll be able to see the number of subscribers and engagement (likes, comments, and shares) with your content. You can track the progress of your email campaign from start to finish from this page.

Step 5: Use the AWeber iOS app to send your emails.

If you’re on the go a lot and don’t have time to log into your account on the web, then you can use the AWeber iOS app to manage your email marketing campaigns. This app can be used on both iOS and Android devices. So you can access your account on the go. 

If you have an iPhone or Apple Watch, you can use Mail, Calendar, and Contacts to enter and send emails quickly and effortlessly. If you click the pencil icon, you can edit the text within the message. If you want to automate some of your emails, you can do so from within the AWeber iOS app. Just like that, you can have all your automated emails send out at the push of a button.

Step 6: Track the success of your email campaign.

Once you’ve started receiving feedback from your list about your emails, you can track their success. You can click the Activity tab next to Email Sent to see a list of all your active email campaigns. From here, you can see the number of subscribers, the %age of new subscribers, and the number of clicks received from each email. You can also track the progress of your email campaign from start to finish from this page.

Hopefully, this was a helpful guide on setting up AWeber email verification for your list. I know it was a painless process for me. I signed up with AWeber a little over a year ago and have sent out over 200 emails just to my list without a single complaint. If you’ve been searching for the answer to this question or are looking to try out AWeber for the first time, then hopefully, this guide will help.
