Do you want to create a sign up form in AWeber but don’t know where to start? Or maybe you’ve created a sign up form in the past but would like some fresh ideas on how to improve it? Don’t worry, this article is for you. In this article, we’ll discuss how to create a sign up form in AWeber so you can get started right away.
Choose The Right Template
Before you start building your form, you need to decide which template to use. AWeber comes with dozens of beautiful, ready-made templates you can choose from. However, if you don’t have the time to choose a template right now, don’t worry, you can always bring your own. Just remember that you’ll have to manually enter your email address and create a password to log in.
But if you use one of the pre-made templates, you’ll have to edit the form a little bit to fit your needs. So let’s have a look at the various templates AWeber has to offer.
Sign Up With Google
One of the simplest and the most popular methods of signing up for a service is to use Google. All you need to do is paste the sign up form’s URL into your browser’s address bar and press Enter. Your browser will then connect you with the form’s settings page where you can sign up without any problems.
However, if you use this method, you won’t be able to recover your email address if you forget it. So it’s best reserved for temporarily registering for a service or product where you can’t use a personal email address (such as a social media platform).
Create Your Email List
An email list is extremely valuable. Having a list of subscribers who have opted-in to receive regular emails from you is a great way to grow your audience and stay in touch with your current customers. We’ll discuss how to create an email list in AWeber a little bit further down. But first, let’s discuss a bit about email marketing.
You may wonder whether or not you should use email to promote your blog. The answer is yes, you should always use email to promote your blog. As a matter of fact, you can use several tools to automate your emails and send out a series of carefully curated letters to your subscribers. The great thing about email marketing is that it’s extremely flexible. For example, you can use a tool like AWeber to send out email campaigns, manage your list, and track the results of your efforts. You can use several other tools like MailChimp and ConvertKit to do the same things, but some prefer to use AWeber because of its flexibility and range of integrations.
Creating a sign up form in AWeber is actually very simple. Just follow these steps:
1. Go to Settings
Head over to your AWeber dashboard and click on Settings in the top right corner. This will take you to the settings page where you can change several aspects of the form. You don’t need to change a lot of things at first. Once you’ve entered your email address and created a password, click on the Save button at the bottom right.
You can then go back to the form and click on the Preview button to see how it looks. If you’re happy with how it looks, click on the Publish button to go live with your sign up form.
2. Add An Email List
Click on Lists in the left-hand navigation bar to get to your email list. Then click on the “+” icon to add another email list. Name your list and make sure to click on the Save button when you’re finished.
3. Add A Form Template
Go back to your dashboard and click on Forms in the left-hand navigation bar. Then click on the “+” icon to add a form template. Name your form and add a hint about what it is (optional).
4. Add Some Content
Next, you need to decide what you’ll put in the form. One of the most popular ways of encouraging people to sign up for a service is to ask them to enter their email address and then ask them to take a look at some special offers. So if you have a physical shop, you could add a section where customers can enter their email address to receive all the latest news and offers. Or if you have a blog, you could add a form where subscribers can get exclusive content and discounts (such as a free e-book or a 10% off coupon).
You can also use the subject line of your emails to draw more attention to your sign up form. For example, you could use a subject line like “New blog article” or “Exclusive offer from our shop” to indicate that there’s a new article or promotion that relates to your sign up form. Just remember that the more relevant the association, the better.
5. Add Some Additional Fields
If you have several forms on your website, you can add more fields by clicking on the More Fields tab at the top of the form. For example, you could add a field where customers can enter their gender or date of birth. Or if you have several similar forms, you could add an additional field where customers can select their country.
You can use autofill to easily populate the form with data. So if you have a blog and you want to encourage people to subscribe, you could add an affiliate link to your form. When someone clicks on that link and subscribes, you’ll earn a small commission.
6. Customize Your Email
The last step is to customize your emails. This is extremely important because you want to make sure that each email is relevant and memorable. You can do this by using unique subject lines, adding a few paragraphs about what the subscriber is going to get out of this email, and inserting a call-to-action at the end of the email to encourage them to click through and subscribe.
For example, if you have a form for customers to enter their email address and then enter their name and phone number, you could use the subject line “Welcome to our community!” and then include a couple of paragraphs about what the community is and how it works. You could also use a call-to-action like “Learn more about the exciting opportunities in our community” or “Let’s get started. Just click on the link below to get started.”
Creating a sign up form in AWeber is very easy. All you need is an email address and a password to log in. Then, you just have to add an email list and choose a template to build your form on. From there, you can adapt the form to your needs by adding more fields and/or options.
If you want to create a sign up form for a blog or a website, you can use a tool like AWeber. But if you want to make a more traditional physical shop sign up form, you can use a tool like Square. With Square, you can simply choose a template and then start entering in the necessary information regarding the shop’s address and hours. Square’s templates are very simple to use and are only 2-3 pages long. So even if you have little to no experience with HTML or website design, you’ll have no trouble creating a stunning storefront.
