As you’re probably aware, we announced the release of our API several months ago, allowing developers to start creating AWeber applications via AWeber Labs. We also released one of the first apps for our own API, a WordPress plugin which allowed you to easily add AWeber forms to your blog. Today, we wanted to tip our hats to the folks at Unbounce, a landing page service, who have created yet another avenue for AWeber integration.
We've been hard at work improving our features so you can grow your business. Check out what we've been working on.
Brand awareness is a hugely important part of email marketing. Give subscribers a from name, a design, a signature they can recognize, and you’ll build their trust. That’s why AWeber lets people customize settings for each of their subscriber lists. One of those settings is the company logo they want displayed in their campaign. In the past, they’ve had to upload their logo elsewhere and provide the URL in their list settings for their logo to appear. Well, we’ve got a little surprise for our customers. Things are about to get easier around here.
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and like many holidays it’s an occasion for businesses to make more sales through email marketing. We know you’re always looking for ways to build your list and deliver relevant, valuable messages to your subscribers, so we thought we’d play Cupid and help you and your customers get together 😉 Just in time for the upcoming holiday, we’ve rolled out new HTML email templates and matching web form ones, themed for February 14th. Check them out.
Our posts about web forms are usually centered around publishing web forms to pages that already have other content (e.g. your homepage). Today, let’s talk about a new feature that will let you to publish a form published to its own page, without you having to publish anything to your site. The new Hosted Web Form option might help you grow your list faster. Here’s how…
A lightbox is one way you can grab your visitors’ attention – it appears above your webpage and shades everything else out. We offer the lightbox as an option in our Web Form Generator. Once a page loads, the form installed on it appears above it. For some, this is great – a way to really catch the visitor off-guard with an offer to sign up for your email marketing campaign. Well, one man’s treasure is another man’s “annoying pop-up”. Some just don’t like them and there’s no convincing. They don’t want something that appears unexpectedly. Does this describe you? Then I wonder how you might feel about lightbox that appears only when a visitor does expect it – and asks for it.
The thank you page is the first thing a subscriber experiences after signing up to your email marketing campaign. It does a lot to establish expectations about your campaign. It’s also where you can knock their socks off. An awesome thank you page can get subscribers excited about receiving your emails, making each each and every broadcast you send a celebratory occasion for them. (Or, at the very least, make them more likely to open your emails.) With the launch of our new Web Form Generator, you can also offer a more personalized thank you page experience to subscribers.
You want to quickly and easily create great-looking signup forms. And you want to do it without having to know HTML. Makes sense to us. So the new Web Form Generator – coming out soon – aims to help you do exactly that. Here are just a few ways you’ll be able to customize the look of your forms to build your list faster and create a better new subscriber experience.
Forms suck. Lets be honest, most forms are well… boring. And creating the HTML for a web form is about as interesting as watching paint dry. But, believe it or not… it doesn’t have to be that way.
After the positive response to our last free HTML email template, “Welcome”, I set out to create more HTML email templates to suit specific common types of emails you send. Today, I’m happy to share the newest addition to our family of functionally themed email templates.
If you follow online marketing circles, you’ve likely seen (and participated in) a lot of discussions about social media and using it to grow your business. While it isn’t a replacement for email marketing, social media can complement it by helping you connect a larger audience to your site and campaigns. One social media tool that a lot of you seem to be using (and that we also use here at AWeber) is Twitter. Today, we’re happy to announce that you can now use your Twitter and AWeber accounts together to expand the reach of your email newsletters.
