How to Set Up AWeber Autoresponder in WordPress

AWeber is one of the most popular email automation platforms, and you can use it to create autoresponder sequences in WordPress. You can use the platform’s interface to design your automatic responses or you can write them by hand. Once you’ve created your sequence, you can let AWeber handle the rest – it will send off an email at the pre-designed email intervals, ensuring you don’t have to lift a finger.

Why Use AWeber In WordPress?

There are many reasons why you might want to use AWeber in WordPress. For one, they have a large, well-designed keyboard for entering text. It’s easy to type a quick reply into a blank box using the large keyboard. You can use their WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor to design your emails, and it’s easy to do – the large keyboard makes it easy to achieve the perfect alignment of letters and words. When you’re entering lengthy emails, it’s easy to get frustrated with tiny keyboarding interfaces, especially since you need to move your fingers from the keyboard to the mouse to edit what you’ve just written. A large keyboard makes editing faster and more convenient.

Another great thing about AWeber is that they have several integrations with various platforms and web apps that make what you can do with email easier. For example, if you have a Mailchimp account, you can integrate the two platforms and have your emails sent to the contact lists of both services. AWeber can also integrate with sites like Shopify, Wismatch, and Hello Fresh to provide customers with automated email follow-ups after an order has been placed. Automated email follow-ups can be a great way to encourage customer engagement and retention.

Last but not least, AWeber provides a ton of great features that you might find useful. For example, you can set the autoresponder to send off a welcome email to new blog subscribers, create email lists for different purposes (e.g., you can create email lists for blog subscribers and customers), and track the open rates and click-through rates of each email in your sequence. All of this information can be found in the platform’s dashboard.

Where Can I Buy AWeber For WordPress?

If you want to use AWeber in WordPress, you must use the platform’s own SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server to send out your emails. You can’t use your own mail server to send emails from AWeber – it won’t work. So, if you want to buy AWeber, you should visit their website and click on the “SMTP Server” tab at the top to find out the pricing plans and get a free trial (you’ll need to register for a free trial to access the pricing information).
