AWeber is my favorite email marketing tools because of its simplicity and flexibility. Launching a meeting or event on AWeber with the \”Start on Message\” feature is incredibly easy, and you can do it from the convenience of your email client. You can even invite others to the meeting or event through your AWeber account. I’ll show you how to set up a meeting with the \”Start on Message\” feature in this article. You’ll learn how to launch a meeting on AWeber from a cold email, an event landing page, or an integration with your favorite CRM.
Set Up The Initial Email
The first step is to set up the initial email. You’ll use this email to introduce yourself, describe the topic you’ll be covering, and invite people to the meeting. You can also add a quick line about the event’s location if there is one.
Try to keep the email short and sweet. You don’t have a lot of space, and you want to keep the email open to maximize the chance of people opening it. Your email may be forwarded to someone who is not on your email list, so you want to make sure that they are not going to think that you’re spamming them.
Launch The Meeting From The Email
When someone clicks the link in your email, they will be taken to a landing page with more information about the event. This is where you can choose the date, time, and location of the event. You can even download the meeting’s.zip file directly to their computer.
I really like how AWeber handles the meeting’s URL. Instead of just having the event’s link in the email’s HTML, you have the option to put the actual URL in the message itself. This makes it much easier for people to find the event, and it ensures that everything is going to work as expected. If you use a different hosting service or decide to move the meeting later than expected, you’ll want to update the email’s URL and break any links in the mail.
Once the meeting is launched, you can add more attendees, change the location, and end the meeting. You can also add a line about the meeting’s agenda, if there is one. If you use the Agenda feature, you can send that too. It’s really convenient to have all the necessary information about the meeting in one place.
Optional: Add Another Email Just For Invitations
While we’re on the subject of invitations, you can add another email just for this purpose. This is important for people who weren’t on your initial email list and want to be added to the upcoming meeting. You don’t need to add them to the initial email sent to the meeting’s attendees, but you can. Just remember to keep it simple and only add people who would actually want to attend the meeting. You can also use the second email to give them more information about the meeting. Maybe you’ll send out the Agenda or Dress Code details via that email.
