Supercharge Your Email Marketing with AWeber + AW Pro Tools
By Olivia Dello Buono April 21, 2015
You have subscribers enrolled in your follow ups, but what happens once they complete the series? You probably want to keep them engaged with great content. So what if there was a way you could automatically sync them into another AWeber list of your choice to keep the conversation flowing?
With AW Pro Tools, now you can.
How It Works
AW Pro Tools gives you segmentation and automation capabilities to help you better engage your subscribers. It’s perfect for the marketer that has multiple levels or courses of content, but doesn’t want the hassle of manually adding or transferring subscribers to another list.
Here’s an overview of some of AW Pro Tools’ exclusive features:
- Subscriber Tagging – Use this powerful tool to tag subscribers based on their actions. This is a great way to boost customer engagement and increase your sales.
- One-Click Subscriber Automation – Move or copy your subscribers to another list of your choice… one click is all it takes!
- Smart Link Technology – If your subscribers are interested in pursuing more content, you can add a smart link to your last email to automatically enroll them in your next follow up series. Subscribers that aren’t interested can just skip the link to opt out of the next series.
- Move Subscribers Automatically – Send your subscribers to a new list when they complete your follow up series, without giving it a second thought.
- Detailed Stats – Get a breakdown of your smart link performance.
- Easy-to-Use Interface – The features are simple. With the drag-and-drop menu options, you can set up your account in seconds.

Thanks for sharing this! I’m a BIG fan of AW Pro Tools + Aweber.
Some cool stuff I’ve done using AW Pro Tools:
1. Use the “Smart Pixel” to tag people who attend an automated webinar. That way they’re moved from the “registered” list to the “attended” list and that way I can talk to them differently.
2. Clean up my lists and unsubscribes – very handy since I have some people on multiple lists for segmenting purposes.
3. Tag people who clicked a link saying they’re interested in a special offer, then email them separately — so I’m hyper-targeting my emails.
That’s just a few things off the top of my head LOVING this tool!

Those are all great tips, Ronnie! Thanks for sharing!

I love Aw Pro Tools, been using it for almost two years, glad to see Aweber talking about it. The tagging and automation have made a huge impact on my profitability. We just starting using it in a new venture in the golf market, where it will be especially powerful for all the segmenting and cross selling we are going to be doing.

I have known AW Pro Tool’s creator, Jack, since the Fall of 2010.
Heck, I even picked him up at Philly Int’l Airport when he visited AWeber’s (old) HQ, back in November of 2011.
The Tool has become more and more advanced AND robust over the years… it is definitely worth checking out to make your AWeber campaigns and funnels that much better!

AW Pro Tools has been a great addition to running my business. The Smart links are a great tool and moving my subscribers once they have been through a follow up list enables me to funnel them through my lead magnets and onto my main list.
Can’t wait to use the new features that Jack has created.
Jack Born4/21/2015 11:50 am
Thank you AWeber for your support and for writing this article.
When I created AW Pro Tools several years ago I had already been using AWeber since about 2002.
I’ve been a fan of AWeber’s for a long time and my entire team is proud to help AWeber clients maximize their email marketing.
And thank you to all my AW Pro Tools clients for your support. Lots of cool new features are on the way thanks to your feedback.

Thanks for teaming up with us, Jack!

I don’t often get excited about marketing tools any more, but Oh My Freaking God! This suite of tools is friggin’ awesome!
I really don’t have words to describe how badass AW Pro Tools is.
Let me just say that I’ve just begun to scratch the surface of using a few of the tools and I’m in heaven. I can’t wait to watch all the tutorials on how to use all of the tools.
Jack has done a bang-up job on extending the functionality of Aweber, to the point where you really don’t need ANYTHING else to earn some serious dough in whatever space you’re in.
AW Pro Tools gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Been using AW Pro Tools for years. It really should be a prerequisite for every power-user of AWeber…
… and I define a “power-user” as *any* marketer that uses email as a channel to build a loyal following of enthusiastic fans and raving, lifelong customers.
AWeber should have been shouting about AWPT ages ago IMHO.
Daniecl Chiteji4/21/2015 11:58 am
AwProTools is a must have if you are using Aweber and I appreciate Jack and his team for adding new features to support all our technical needs.
Jack Born4/21/2015 12:02 pm
I’m humbled by the positive comments.
It’s truly amazing to see that my talented team and I are adding value.
You all made my day!

Thanks for sharing because i am new to AW Pro Tools
Josh Long4/21/2015 12:34 pm
I make every client I work with that uses Aweber setup AW Pro Tools, as it makes my job 10x easier to implement smarter follow up and segmentation to their prospects and clients.
No longer is the power of segmentation and automation only available in the expensive marketing suites like Hubspot and Infusionsoft.
Stoked Aweber is embracing it and promoting it here! Every Aweber user should get it.
Ryan Masters4/21/2015 12:57 pm
This is such a needed tool.
I was forced to leave Aweber way to early (years ago) because it wasn’t available and I needed the segmentation AW Pro Tools provided.
Stoked to see Aweber finally talking about it – you’re going to help a lot of business owners and probably keep many from jumping ship to infusion/ontra etc.

We’ve used (and recommend) AWProTools for years. One of the things that we’ve found most powerful is using it to build sub “interest” lists. For example, we recently ran a promotion where we built a small 2,000 person sub-list to promote an affiliate offer on a $450K launch and came in 2nd place in that launch. It allows us to promote offers to the most relevant segments of our list without fatiguing our entire list as a whole.
Olivia Dello Buono4/21/2015 1:49 pm
That’s awesome, Ryan! We love hearing how customers are finding success with our integrations.
David RUGGIERI4/21/2015 3:42 pm
I am a French Aweber AND a fresh AW pro Tools.
I have quickly see the potential to connect this wonderful tool to my email marketing business.
Great job and very useful!
Jack Born4/21/2015 4:16 pm
Thank you very much David! We have lots of international customers and very happy that you’re one of them.
Robert Tyson4/22/2015 2:27 am
I’m sure it is a good tool – but why is AWeber not introducing features like this themselves? Really feel you guys are getting left behind – I don’t see much innovation.
Olivia Dello Buono4/23/2015 8:53 am
Hi Robert. Thanks for your comment. We are busily creating new features and enhancing existing ones. In fact, we just released the ability to import subscribers without requiring confirmation, updates to our mobile apps to include follow up stats and offline subscriber sign ups, a new design to our customer accounts, a new video element in our email builder, and more. We are working on some exciting things this year, and looking forward to sharing them with you as we get closer to releasing them!
Jack Born4/22/2015 5:16 pm
I don’t work for AWeber but I can share with you that we frequently get clients that have tried other email systems, found those other systems confusing and bloated, and love the combo of AWeber and AW Pro Tools.

Alexander4/22/2015 9:57 pm
I’m a MASSIVE fan of AW pro tools – I’m a serious rookie compared to most of the people here, but it’s made my life a lot easier.
For example, there are a number of different interest groups in my market (health), and it doesn’t really make much sense to send unrelated product pitches to them constantly on my list. So what I’ve ended up using it for is breaking up my list into little “mini course” groups – and then I just will do launches & deliver targeted info to specifically targeted groups.
It’s been a huge help, and it’s very smooth (not requiring them to fill out their info again). Take me 5 secs to set up a new link too.
Will Hamilton4/23/2015 3:08 pm
AWProTools is awesome!
Nowadays it’s so important to segment your audience and tailor your communication to what a particular subscriber is interested in…
(The days of “one size fits all” email marketing are numbered…)
And AWPT is the *perfect* tool for doing this. Kudos to Jack for creating such a useful piece of software, couldn’t do business without it!
Emilia Pineda4/30/2015 10:59 am
I’ve been using AW Pro Tools for about a year and a half now. I am so happy to see Aweber joining their projects. The tagging and the automation features have made a huge impact on my email marketing campaigns.
I think the Smart links is an awesome tool. Can’t wait to use the new features.
