AWeber 10th Anniversary

This month marks the 10th anniversary of AWeber since our first customer back in August 1998.

You might think that after 10 years things around here would be business as usual.

It’s anything but with constant new feature releases, hardware upgrades, new team members joining, and the thousands of small businesses like yourself that we work with every day.

What better way to celebrate the past and look forward to the future than to look at some of the many stages of change we’ve had over the years?

Thank You

At the end of the day though AWeber’s success is due to people.

Customers like yourself who use AWeber to grow their small businesses and team members here in the office who keep things humming day after day.

To all of you, I thank you!

It’s been a marvelous first 10 years and I’m looking forward to the next 10.

    Wow, 10 years and going stronger year by year.

    Congratulations, keep up the good work and I love AWeber to bits!
    IMHO it is THE Permission Marketing Tool – and any business not using AWeber is definitely left behind!

    although I can’t say I was with you all the way, I was "within the first batch" (looked through my history of emails, it was in 2000 that I decided to give your service a fair chance, 8 years, wow…).

    There were the occasional hickups and arguments, well I guess that’s life, you also implemented some of the stuff I always asked about over time, which is fantastic (and some you didn’t, yet…)

    As a summary, the business relationship with you guys is one of the very long lasting – which again, shows you’re doing things right.

    Thanks for all

    PS: –I just recognised, with my affiliate id from 2000 being well in the low xxx range, one can call that a quite slow start for aweber, wasn’t it? Well NOW look what you’ve been grown into Tom, congrats again – "keep on going"!

    I don’t have any doubt that my business would be less profitable without Aweber all these years. You guys are at the top of the hill by a long shot. Congratulations on reaching this milestone and I wish you many more years of growth.

    Hi Tom,

    I’ve had the pleasure of meeting you a few times at Yanik’s events and your success with Aweber couldn’t happen to a better guy.

    Congrats on 10 years. You’ve done an outstanding job and offer a top notch service I couldn’t surTHRIVE without. 🙂

    Here’s to another 10 great years!

    It’s a short list of tools that have been in my virtual toolbox since the beginning. Aweber is my trusty swiss army knife.

    Other tools and fads come and go…but I keep on growing my lists and my loyal customers keep on reading my emails.

    If you want to take all my websites you can – leave me my aweber and my mailing lists and I’ll be just fine.

    Happy 10th Birthday.

    P.S. as you approach your teenage years please don’t get all moody and irrational.

That in this celebration there is a lot of happiness, the satisfaction of having fulfilled a professional work as you they know how to carry out it and my sincere desire is that they don’t turn ten years, but rather those years are full with many of victories
