It’s the beginning of a new year, which means it’s a perfect time to try out a new email marketing tool. If you’re looking for a free alternative to Aweber, you’ve come to the right place. Find out how you can put your first name in the subject line of your emails in this tutorial.
First things first, you’ll need to install the AWeber app on your phone. You can download it for free from the App Store or Google Play Store.
After installing the app, you’ll be prompted to create a new account or to use an existing one. If you’re using an existing account, make sure you log in before proceeding.
Put Your First Name In The Subject Line
Now that you have the AWeber app installed on your phone, you can begin using it to send emails. To get started, open the app and click on the big green button to the right of the search bar. This will take you to the dashboard. From here, you can click on the gear icon in the upper-right corner to bring up the settings. Then, click on the “+” icon to bring up the account menu. Finally, toggle the switch next to “First name”, and you’re done! You can now put your first name in the subject line of your emails, and AWeber will do the rest.
Design A Confirm/Cancel Button
You’ll need to create a confirm/cancel button in your email’s HTML in order to use AWeber’s double opt-in strategy. The button will need to be hyperlinked to a web page where your email subscribers can confirm their interest in your content. You can use a tool like Mailchimp’s free HTML button generator or WordPress’s built-in form builder to create the button.
AWeber’s double opt-in strategy is a way of getting more engaged subscribers by encouraging them to click a confirmation button. Thanks to this strategy, you’ll get email confirmation (aka double opt-in) for every new subscriber you get. This is different from the more common single opt-in, where subscribers have to confirm their email manually.
Use AWeber To Its Full Potential
As mentioned above, AWeber is a powerful tool with a lot of features. Once you’ve gotten used to the idea of putting your first name in the subject line of your emails, you can fully customise the subject line and design of your emails. You can also add a few lines of text in the body of your emails to encourage your subscribers to take action.
Make Sure You’re Opted-In To All The Important Lists
It’s always a good idea to be on the lookout for any significant email updates from the companies you interact with. Sometimes, these updates mean you’ve got a special offer or a new product to try out. In other cases, it means you’ve been deemed as a ‘no-op’ or ‘banned-list’ member and are no longer allowed to view or download certain content or are being presented with an important announcement.
To stay on top of these alerts, you can subscribe to various email lists and filter the important stuff. You can use tools like Mailchimp, HubSpot, or other CRM software to manage your alerts and filters.
Take Care Of Your Subscribers
If you’re running an eCommerce store, you might want to look into AWeber’s commerce features. You can use these features to create a custom email sequence of upsells and cross-sells, using conditional logic to trigger the right email content based on your customer’s behaviour, e.g. if they’ve bought a certain product before, you can send them content relating to that product.
AWeber’s email marketing features are what make it so attractive to so many business owners and online marketers. It’s easy to implement, and it has all the tools you need to get started. Plus, because it’s a free option, there’s no downside to giving it a try. Just make sure you don’t get sucked into the hype surrounding the popular affiliate program- they’re not as good as they seem.
