As an email marketer, you’re undoubtedly familiar with the importance of being able to reach your audience. After all, if you can’t get your emails to your customers, then it’s pretty difficult to be able to sell your products or services to them. One of the primary ways you can do this is by setting up email campaigns using tools like AWeber. While it’s helpful to have a wide array of features, one of the most basic yet essential items to have is the ability to unblock email addresses. Let’s take a closer look at how to do this on AWeber.
What is Email Blocking and Why do You need to Unblock Email Addresses?
Email blocking and unblocking are two terms used to describe the act of a business, brand, or individual preventing email communication from reaching a specific email address. In many cases, this can be done for a variety of reasons, whether it be to protect the privacy of an individual or to prevent spam. For example, if you run a blog for fun, you might want to block comments from strangers, but leave the emails of your subscribers open. This way, you can continue to communicate with your audience without risking your personal information being abused by strangers.
How to Unblock an Email Address on AWeber
If you’re new to AWeber, then click here to go to the email marketing program overview. From there, you can get a basic idea of how the tool works. With email blocking/unblocking being such a widely adopted practice, the tools for doing it are many and varied. Whether you need to temporarily or permanently disable the ability for an email address to send or receive emails, there’s an action to take. Let’s have a look at how to do this on AWeber.
1. Log into your AWeber account.
First things first, you need to log into your AWeber account. If you haven’t set up an account yet, you can get started here. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a menu from which you can select the dashboard. From there, click on Settings and then click on the Email Tab.
2. Under the Email address settings, you’ll see a field where you can define which addresses are allowed to send you emails and which are blocked. Uncheck the box next to the email address(es) you wish to unblock.
In the example below, you can see a blocked email address. The email address in question belongs to a guest who left a comment on one of my blogs. You’ll notice that if you click on the address, it brings up an error since the address is blocked. This is typical behavior for email blockers.
3. Click on the Save Changes button at the top right corner of the screen.
Once you’ve made the necessary adjustments, you can click on the Save Changes button at the top right corner of the screen.
Now that you’ve adjusted your email addresses on AWeber, you can test the settings by sending an email to one of the email addresses you’ve just altered. If the email successfully reaches the intended recipient, then the address was successfully unblocked.
Email blocking and unblocking on AWeber is quite easy to do. If you need help or have any questions about the process, please don’t hesitate to contact us by visiting our website or calling us at 1-888-201-4465.
