Create Modern, Sleek Emails Faster than Ever

Email has changed quite a bit since AWeber sent its first automated message 20 years ago!

And as email marketing changes, the tools we use every day to create and send must change as well.

In continuing our mission to help creators, entrepreneurs, and small businesses connect with their audience in remarkable ways, we set out (with your help) to construct a better email builder.

Introducing your new email builder

Create modern, sleek emails faster than ever with the new Email Builder from AWeber. Watch the video below to see the Drag and Drop Email Builder in use.

We asked users what they needed from an email builder. Our goal was simple: Develop an email-building experience that’s fast, intuitive, clean, and easy-to-use for our customers. You don’t need to know a lick of code, or be a graphic designer to send emails that look great on any device.

Awesome new features and layouts

We did more than simply apply a “fresh coat of paint.” This new email builder is faster, smoother, and has a few new features.

The biggest change you’ll notice is the reconstruction of the canvas to match the three-column layout found in our automation platform, Campaigns.

You’ll also feel the difference when dragging and dropping elements into your email templates, and when reordering elements within the email. The experience of building an email is now more fluid and flexible.

Customize your preheader text

The most requested new feature is the ability to customize your preheader text!

The preheader text is the snippet of preview text that appears next to your subject line. It’ll look different on mobile devices and desktop clients.

Customizing your pre-header text is a great way to encourage subscribers to open your messages.

Pro-tip: This field even accepts personalization snippets, so you can include your subscriber’s first name in the preheader text if you’ve collected it.

Improved “Share This” element

We’ve also revamped our “Share This” element, which allows your subscribers to share an archive link or custom link from your email to their social channels. Inviting your subscribers to share your email content is a great way to grow your list.

We’ve made it easier to adjust the style and size of your social sharing buttons.

Flexible new email layouts

With the rollout of the new builder, we’re also releasing 8 new email templates called layouts.

These layouts are a set of modern, unbranded email templates. Just add your own brand logo and colors. Save each customized layout as a new template for every occasion –– like announcements, personal letters, product reveals, etc.

Start building awesome emails today

With your new Drag & Drop Email Builder and sleek layouts, you’re now equipped to create modern emails in minutes.

Start using it today! Simply log in to your AWeber account and check it out.

On August 1, the new builder will become the default drag and drop email builder in AWeber, replacing our old version. We invite you to take this opportunity to use the builder with your own emails and give us valuable feedback to make any necessary improvements. Just click the “Share Feedback” button when viewing the new builder and let us know.

    Well, I would love to know more, but there is no video, tutorial, or examples of the finished product to look at!! You say “log in to your account to learn more”, I do, and all I see is something that looks similar to what I have been using????? I spend quite a bit of time exploring, signing up for your newsletter, but did not learn one new thing or see any updated versions.

    Mine looks exactly the same. I see nothing new. No worries…just wrote an article earlier this morning and sent it out with the “old” email builder.

    Honestly, it may be me but I cannot follow that format of demonstration-too fast to read and cant stop it

    Surely a video training would be far better?

    The improvements look interesting, however the video presentation is way too fast for anyone to reasonably follow.

    Thus far it is very buggy. The new builder does not work with multicolumn templates. It also won’t is now giving an error saying all my links are not valid even though they work fine. The settings for each element are now in a bar at the right rather than next to the element being edited, which is just a pain. Not much else has changed. Over all not an improvement. The only drag and drop builder worked far better.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback! We’re currently working on a video demo to showcase a few of the changes.

    The team is also addressing an issue with a few templates that have multi-column layouts. We’ll push a fix for that bug as soon as possible, and we apologize for the inconvenience if you’ve experienced that.

    Please keep the feedback coming! We’re using it to build a better product. 🙂

    Wish there was a way to put 2 or more thumbnail images on the same line. Also, would like to see an option to create tables.
