What You Need to Know About Switching Email Marketing Tools
By Nikki Meyer November 20, 2020
AWeber’s free migration services make it quick and simple for you to move your content and subscribers from another email marketing tool.
For the past 22 years, we have helped more than 1,000,000 small business owners, entrepreneurs, and content creators connect and build relationships with their audiences through email marketing.
And in that time, one thing has become abundantly clear: small business owners have a lot on their plate and wear a lot of hats.
So when it comes to moving from one email service provider to another, it can seem daunting to begin the process, whether it’s due to a lack of resources, time, or expertise.
That’s why AWeber’s team of email marketing experts are available around the clock to help transition all of our customer’s content, subscribers, and information over to their new AWeber account. Plus, we do so quickly and at no cost — which is pretty awesome!
Sound too good to be true? Read on to learn more about AWeber’s migration services and when to consider switching email marketing tools.
How to know it’s time to switch email marketing providers
Feel like you could be getting better results from your email marketing? If any of these 5 scenarios sound familiar to you, it might be time to switch to another email marketing tool.
1—You need better email deliverability. To grow your business and connect with your audience, your emails need to be noticed. And that’s not possible when your messages are going to spam.
Getting your messages into the inbox is the bread and butter of email marketing. Unfortunately, many other email marketing providers outsource their email deliverability, forfeiting control of their customers’ email delivery process.
Not AWeber. We’re proud to maintain an in-house deliverability team that works to ensure your messages are hitting your subscribers’ inboxes.
2—Your current platform is hard to use. You’re busy. You don’t have time to spend figuring out a clunky platform. You need something simple, intuitive, and streamlined that works with all the other tools you use to run your business.
Plus, depending on your current email marketing tool, you may not get the support you need in order to figure it out. Which brings me to my next point…
3—You need expert support. Many email marketing providers reserve their customer support for customers on their higher, more expensive pricing tiers. But how does that help people who are just starting out, who may need a little more help as they get up and running?
It doesn’t. Other email service providers place higher value on customers who are paying more. We think that’s the wrong approach. At AWeber, all customers — on both the Free plan and Pro plan — have unlimited access to our award-winning customer support team, 24/7. And we’re willing to help you with anything from a tech issue to providing expert advice and — you guessed it — migrating your email marketing to AWeber from another provider.
4—You don’t have the features you need to connect with your audience. Email marketing tools vary provider to provider. It can be hard to know what you need when you’re first starting out.
So if you find you don’t have the features you need to connect with your audience the way that you want, don’t worry.
5—You need help writing emails and setting up automated campaigns. Knowing what to write in your emails is a process. A process many people don’t have time for.
But, as an AWeber customer, you’d have a team with a wealth of experience on your side. With 20+ years experience in email marketing, we’ve been around, know the best practices, and have tested things to figure out what works and what doesn’t.
Putting that knowledge to work, our team has put together tons of prewritten emails, designed templates, landing pages, campaigns, and more to get you 90% of the way there. All you need to do is fill in the blanks and you’re off and running.

What our customers have to say about mitigating to AWeber.
AWeber customers who have gone through the migration process have nothing but positive things to say:
“AWeber’s Free Migration crushed the busy work of migrating everything from my ex-provider, right when I needed it.”– Thomas C.
“I have worked with a lot of technical support people in my business, but I must say that Amanda W. has been the very best thus far. She has worked diligently with me to migrate my mailing list from MailChimp to AWeber with great results. I was afraid I would lose my client history, but she assured me I wouldn’t and after her import and append of all my files, my data was all in tack and my fears were relieved. She has continued to follow up with me even after the migration process to answer my questions and assure I am getting along fine. I wish there were more support staff such as she, because it would make my life much less stressful. I cannot say enough about her, but really do appreciate her so much.”– B.A. Ingram
“This has been an easy process so far thanks to you. I look forward to diving into AWeber and getting started.”– Kim P.
You won’t get a better migration experience anywhere else.
Before your migration begins, you will be able to schedule a call with one of our Migration Specialists to discuss your transition and answer any questions you may have. Unlike other email marketing tools, our migration services are available to everyone and nothing is off limits.
Throughout the process, we are in constant communication to keep you up to date on your migration’s progress.
Plus, when the migration is complete, you can schedule another call to walk through your completed migration and discuss your workflow and email marketing goals. No other email marketing tool will provide that level of care and attention.
