Hi there, and welcome to our blog. You can find out more about us here.
AWeber is the #1 automated email marketing tool used by over 2 million websites worldwide. They also provide affiliate marketing services, payment processing, and more – all from one place. And they’ve been around for ages, launching in 2008 and growing rapidly ever since.
In this article, we’ll walk you through the steps to get started with AWeber. Whether you’re an existing customer or just want to explore the platform, these steps will get you up and running in no time.
Sign Up For AFree Account
First things first – you need to sign up for an account. It’s completely free to do this, and if you’ve ever used social networking websites like Facebook or Twitter, then this will be very familiar territory. Just remember to use a secure password and keep your account details private. You can also choose to receive occasional marketing emails from AWeber. However, you can unsubscribe at any time should you not want to receive these emails.
Activate Your Account
After you’ve signed up, then the next step is to activate your account. To do this, simply visit the Account tab and scroll down to the Activate section. You’ll see a button that says Activate now. Click this button and you’re done. You can now start sending and receiving emails as per usual.
Configure Your Account Preferences
Your account is now activated, so the next step is to configure your account settings. To do this, click on the Settings tab at the top of the page. Here you can access all of your account preferences. You can change your email address, password, and more. You can select whether you want to receive direct marketing emails or not. And of course, you can opt-out of receiving these emails at any time by following the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the emails. You can also change your billing information here as well if needed.
Set Up Your Email Marketing
Now that your account is activated and configured, you’re ready to start leveraging its capabilities. To do this, click on the Email Marketing tab at the top of the page. You’ll see a button that says Create campaign. From here, you can create your very first email marketing campaign. Just follow the prompts to complete the form, and you’ll be on your way to creating a simple but effective email marketing program.
When you first arrive on this screen, you’ll see the most basic of landing page examples. You don’t need to go overboard here – sticking to the basics is usually the best policy. This is especially important if you’re just getting started as a brand new user. If you’ve used other email marketing platforms before, then you know that the more you put in it, the more you get out of it. So instead of going wild and diving into all the different features, just start small and simple. If you need more features, then you can always upgrade later.
Track And Monitor Your Campaigns
Once your campaign has been created, the next step is to track and monitor its progress. To do this, click on the Tracking and Monitoring tab at the top of the page. You’ll see a button that says View performance. From here, you can monitor the open rates, click-throughs, and much more for each of your campaigns. Plus, you can track the performance of specific audiences and segments within your targets.
Choose Which Affiliate Networks To Join
One of the great things about AWeber is that you don’t need to be confined to just one network – you can choose which affiliate networks you want to work with. To do this, click on the Networks tab at the top of the page. You’ll see a section that says Affiliate networks –> Join now. Here you can choose from over 20 different networks that you can join to gain access to lucrative affiliate programs. Just remember that to maintain a high level of performance, you need to keep your campaigns balanced – meaning that you don’t want to have too many promotions going on at once.
Set Up Your Auto-Responder
Now that you have a basic understanding of how to get started with AWeber, let’s talk about one of its most unique and powerful features – the auto-responder. An auto-responder is a program that automatically replies to whoever you’re emailing with a fresh, personalized message. This message, which is sent from a dedicated email address (usually email@example.com) will welcome your new contact, and it may also include a link to purchase a product or service related to your niche.
To set up your auto-responder, click on the Auto-Responder tab at the top of the page. You’ll see a large button that says Create Auto-Responder. From here, you can choose from a variety of pre-made templates or you can type in your own custom message to send out to new contacts. Remember, you can always modify or send out a different message at any time from this screen – so feel free to experiment!
