How to Send an Email from AWeber

You may wonder how you can send an email through AWeber. After all, the platform is quite popular and has been growing at a fast pace. More and more people are discovering the benefits of using an email marketing tool, especially if you want to reach more customers. AWeber can be quite helpful in terms of providing a simple yet effective means of sending emails. In this article, you will discover how to use AWeber to send out a steady stream of marketing emails to your audience. You will also learn the ins and outs of using this tool so you can become more efficient and effective in your campaigns.

Step One: Create a Brand New Email

The first step in the process is to create a brand new email. Make sure you do this in the ‘Lab’ section of your AWeber account. You will have to give this email a compelling subject line and a good flow of text. You can also include a simple call to action in your email such as ‘Sign up now!‘ or ‘Get our free ebook now!‘ The perfect tool for doing this is the ‘Content Library’ found within the AWeber dashboard. From here, you can click on the ‘Create New Content’ button at the top of the page. You will then be presented with a simple form where you can enter a subject line and some basic content. You will need to ensure that all the information you provide here is comprehensive and well-written. In addition, you should take some time to think of a few compelling reasons why someone should sign up for your email list. Once you have done this, hit the ‘Create’ button and you will see a new email within a matter of minutes. If you are looking for a more detailed walkthrough of the email creation process, you can always refer to the AWeber help center.

Step Two: Set Up Your Email Marketing Auto-Responders

The next step is to set up your email marketing auto-responders. The idea behind an auto-responder is to have a series of messages that are sent out automatically to people who subscribe to your email list. You can use AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section to set up your initial responders or you can log into your account and do this from within the platform. Either way, this is a crucial step and you need to do it without any mistakes or omissions. To set up your initial responders, you will need to select the type of email you want to use (example: html, text, or blended), the email address you would like the message to be sent to (i.e. your list of subscribers), and the email template you would like to use. You can also personalize the message by including a name and/or a unique phrase. You then need to copy and paste the email address you want the messages to be sent to into the BCC field. Next, you will need to set the frequency of the messages (i.e. do you want the messages to be sent once a week, once every two weeks, or once a month) and the time of day the messages should be sent out at (i.e. mornings, afternoons, or evenings). When you are finished, click on the ‘Save Changes’ button to save the settings. You can use the ‘Preview’ button to see how the auto-responder will look when it is deployed.

Step Three: Personalize the Subject Line

One of the most important things you can do for an email is to personalize the subject line. The subject line of an email serves as the little piece of information that comes before the opening of the email. The idea is to have a subject line that is unique to the person reading it and compels them to open the email. With that in mind, you can use AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section to find the email template you would like to use and edit it to fit your needs. You can click here to access AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section and begin editing your email’s subject line. When you are finished, hit the ‘Save Changes’ button to save the subject line and you will be presented with a pop-up where you can send out your email. The subject line of your email can be as long as you want it to be but can never exceed a certain number of characters (i.e. 80). You should make sure that your subject line is compelling and concise yet comprehensive enough to catch a person’s attention.

Step Four: Write a Good Opening

The next step is to write a good opening. The opening of an email serves as the first line of text in the email where the recipient lands on the subject of the email. Much like a headline in a news article, the opening of an email should grab the attention of the reader and compel them to keep reading. When you are writing your opening, make sure you include all the essential information the reader needs to know about the topic of your email. You can use AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section to find the email template you would like to use and edit it to fit your needs. To write a good opening, you need to do the following: Start with a question or a call to action (e.g. ‘Have you ever wondered…‘ or ‘Are you looking for…)‘ If you want to learn more about cold-email openers, you can always refer to the AWeber help center.

Step Five: Write an Actionable Body

The body of an email is where all the content comes together. The body of your email can be as long or as short as you want it to be but, as mentioned above, it should be comprehensive and well-written. When you are writing your body, make sure you include all the necessary information the reader needs to know about the topic of your email. One of the best things about the AWeber body is that it is extremely easy to edit. You can click here to access AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section and begin writing your email’s body. When you are finished, hit the ‘Save Changes’ button to save the body of the email and you will be presented with a pop-up where you can send out your email.

Step Six: Customize the Email’s To: Header

The last step is to customize the email’s to: header. This is a space located directly below the header where the email’s from: address is displayed. When someone clicks on this area of the email, they will be taken to your email’s ‘to:’ list. You can use AWeber’s ‘Lab’ section to find the email template you would like to use and edit it to fit your needs. When you are finished, hit the ‘Save Changes’ button to save the email’s ‘to:’ header and you will see a pop-up where you can send out your email.
