Logo Hosting For Easier List Setup

Brand awareness is a hugely important part of email marketing. Give subscribers a from name, a design, a signature they can recognize, and you’ll build their trust.

That’s why AWeber lets people customize settings for each of their subscriber lists. One of those settings is the company logo they want displayed in their campaign.

In the past, they’ve had to upload their logo elsewhere and provide the URL in their list settings for their logo to appear.

Well, we’ve got a little surprise for our customers. Things are about to get easier around here.

Now, We’ll Host Your Logo For You

No more hopping around to third-party hosting sites while you’re trying to get your list set up. Just upload your logo straight into your settings. Then it will appear on your AWeber thank-you page, your unsubscribe page and on all your archived broadcasts.

Here’s what the process looks like:

1. In your account, hover over the “My Lists” tab and choose “List Settings.” Then choose the middle tab, “Personalize Your List.”

2. After you add in your other company details, choose the option to upload your logo on the right.

3. Click “browse” and choose your logo file from wherever you have it saved in your computer.

And you’re done!

Supported Formats: JPEG, GIF, PNG

In order for your logo to upload correctly, you’ll want to make sure the file type is a jpg, gif or png. And keep the size around or under 80k to keep your logo looking as pretty as possible.

If you have any questions, let us know!

    Looks like a great idea and I thought I’d give it a try.
    So, I fell at the first hurdle!
    When I clicked on “my lists” there was not an option for “personalize my list”.
    Why?

  5. You guys are the BEST! Thank you so much for this. A small adjustment that is so appreciated. And I just wanted to take the moment to appreciate all of you there. Your personal service, you listen to what we ask for, you keep getting better and better. I don’t know what I would do without Aweber. Thank you so very much for doing what you do so well.

  6. Ismail, Kathy and Riley ~ Thanks!

    Sheenagayle ~ You have to hover over “My Lists”, and you should see a dropdown menu with “List Settings” as one of the options. Choose that, and it will take you to the right page.

  9. Thanks Amanda-

    Yes- we have been doing the logo / banner inAweber for 1 client and it makes a difference on the thank you page as well as the “unsubscribe page”:

    http://www.marketplacebootcamp.com

    (We use aweber to help them fill monthly events and when people sign up for the next event – we segment them with a new sign up form and new list with the automatic “unsubcribe” – this way – we can see in Aweber who has not been to an event in a while and we can get in touch with them or offer them a little incentive to come to a more recent event)

    However- are you saying that the logo can now be uploaded to Aweber instead of being referred from an external URL?

    What are the obvious and not so obvious advantages of this?

    I am not quite sure from reading this how it is different / same.

    Thanks

  10. Aaron ~ That sounds like a very neat use of automation and segmenting. Checking out their site now.

    The benefit to uploading the logo directly is simply an easier list set-up process.

  11. You have given us the file size – under 80kb, but can you give us the graphic size you prefer – or the maximum – ie 560 x 90

    3/5/2011 1:04 am
  12. Annie ~ According to our designers, you’ll want to go no wider than 200-250 px.

    Hi any chance we can customize the colors of the forms AND emails so it matches the colors of the company branding and website?

    It’s limited in terms of customization and I’ve seen other email subcription services where they allow the owners to control the color, background and placement of words – and the emails end up looking like it came from part of their website – which promotes branding.

  14. Zoe ~ You can change the color, background and word placement of your emails in the “source” editor if you know HTML. If you don’t, well, I’m passing on your request!

  15. Does it matter what size the logo is Pixel-wise? I have a 960 x 100 logo.

  16. Looks like the maximum width is 850 pixels. At least, that’s the width of the other content on the unsubscribe form…
