New Features: 2-Step Landing Pages, a Vertical Menu and Celebratory Badges
By Kelsey Johnson June 3, 2021
We’re always adding new features, updates and templates to help you work smarter. Check out what’s new in your AWeber account this week.
We get it. You’re working on a million things at once — in addition to marketing your business.
That’s a lot of work. So, we think your tools should do 90% of the work for you. That’s why we’re constantly updating your account to make things faster, easier, and, ultimately, better for growing your business.
You can now more easily navigate your account, get more subscribers with a new type of sign up form and celebrate your wins along the way!
Navigate your account with ease
Notice something new? Your menu options are now on the left side of your screen rather than at the top (don’t worry, the options are the same).
Here are some key benefits of the new menu navigation, and why we made the switch:
- Navigate around your account faster without scrolling, since your menu is always visible on-screen.
- Take advantage of the full size of your screen. You can collapse the menu down to icons, giving you more space to view and manage your marketing view and manage your marketing.
- Review your dashboard at a glance on a tablet or smartphone. Easily collapse the menu on mobile devices, giving you a simple, useful view of everything — broadcasts, stats, pages and more.
Don’t worry, we didn’t remove any features or functionality. If you’re having any issues at all, please reach out to our Customer Success team.
Grow your email list fast with 2-step landing pages
Now, there’s a new way to collect subscriber’s email addresses : 2-step landing pages (also commonly referred to as 2-step opt-in or on-click pop up forms).
What does 2-step opt-in mean? You can set your sign up form to appear only when someone clicks a button or link on your landing page. This is different from a form that is always visible on your landing page or website, and forms that pop up after a determined amount of time.
In order to sign up for your list, visitors must take these 2 steps:
- Click a button, triggering a pop up form.
- Enter an email address into the form to subscribe.
Why should you use a 2-step landing page? Simple: It could lead to more sign ups.
That’s because visitors are more engaged than they would be simply scanning a form with their eyes. The act of clicking a button to view the sign up form means visitors are more likely to complete the signup process.
Try it out and see if you get more subscribers!
See how easy it is to set up your own 2-step landing page:
Note: 2-step opt-in is not the same as confirmed opt-in, or sending a confirmation email to your subscribers to opt in to your list.
Celebrate your success at every milestone
Growing your list the right way isn’t easy — but it’s worth it. Each new, quality subscriber could turn into hundreds — or thousands! — of dollars in revenue for your business.
So when you hit important milestones, you should celebrate them. And we want to help.
That’s why you will receive a badge for every list growth milestone you hit — from 10 subscribers all the way up to a million subscribers. No matter where you’re at, you should be proud of your progress — and get to brag about it.
Keep an eye out for emails with fun badges that you can share, send to your employees, print out and frame or anything else you can think of — you’ve earned it.
