How to Add a Unsubscribe Button to Your AWeber List

AWeber is the most popular email marketing platform used by over 500,000 businesses worldwide. It’s a great choice for any business, regardless of size, as it offers a lot of features including automated email campaigns, autoresponders, and much more.

However, one of the major drawbacks of using AWeber is the lack of customization options. If you’re not happy with the default look of the platform, you’ll either have to create an entirely new account or ask for assistance from their customer support team. For small businesses that are looking for an easy way to communicate with customers without having to set up multiple email addresses, this may be a deal breaker.

Fortunately, there is an easy way to add a subscribe/unsubscribe button to your AWeber account without having to create a new profile. You’ll just need to follow a few steps.

Step 1: Go To Your Account

The first step is to log into your AWeber account. If you already have one, you can skip this step.

If you don’t have an account yet, click the link in the email you received from AWeber to get to the sign-up page. Once you’re on that page, enter your email address and create a password. Then, click the “Create Account” button.

Step 2: Customize Your Subscribe & Unsubscribe Buttons

Now that you have an account, you’ll see a screen like this:

It’s important to note that this isn’t a pop-up window. You’ll just need to click the “Edit HTML” button to make changes to your account info and email templates. You can add a subscribe / unsubscribe button to your template by adding this code to your website’s footer:

Change “your-short-name” and “your-account-name” to the correct values (you will be able to find these values under your Dashboard → My Settings → Account info). Then, copy the code above and paste it into your site’s footer.

Step 3: Test Your Changes

Once you’ve added the code to your site’s footer, it’s time to test it. Hit the “Review Settings” link under your Dashboard → My Settings → Account info to make sure everything is functioning correctly. You can also use the “Account Settings” under your Dashboard → My Settings to verify the email address associated with your account.

If all looks good, you’re ready to publish your changes and begin using the customized button. Hit the “Save Changes” button under your Dashboard → My Settings → Account info to complete the process.

And that’s it. You now have a subscribe / unsubscribe button on your AWeber account. Congratulations!
