What is Aweber?
Aweber is an email marketing service that let you connect and stay in touch with your audience. It has become one of the most popular service with over 120 000 users.
How Does Aweber works?
Once you login in your account, you can create sign up forms that you install on your website. When someone goes on your website and enter their email address in the form, they automatically get added to your Aweber email list. You can then start marketing to them.
Aweber works with an analytic that lets you track a lot of things:
- Who opened your messages (who didn’t)
- Which links were clicked (and by whom)
- How much revenue your message generated
- How many people unsubscribed

Create your first email list
If you’re new to Aweber, the first thing you need to do is create a list. From the home page scroll down to the bottom and click on create a new list.
Enter your brand name, website and email address that you will use to send messages.
Enter a name you want to give to your list and a short description that people will see when they opt-in.
Personalise the message they will receive to confirm their subscription.
How to create an opt-in form
Once your list is created, you need to create an opt-in form to place on your website. Head over to the “sign up forms” menu tab and click on the green button.
Select a template
You can design your own or you can choose one of the hundreds different templates available for you. Enter your own title or leave it blank. Save your form and go to step 2.
Next you will give a name to your list. Only you will see this name so you can name it however you want. If you have a thank you page URL, this where you will enter it. If you don’t have a thank you page, you can skip this and go straight to step 3.
Publish your optin form
You are ready to put the form on any post, page or in your sidebar. If you don’t already have a website, you can create one by following this tutorial.
Aweber can also host your form for you. just copy and past the link like shown below. Now you can use this link in any email, on facebook, pinterest, google+. You can even share it on instagram or anywhere you can write some text! It will redirect to the form you just created and you will start capturing email address.
How to make money with your email list
The ultimate goal is to make them purchase something. There is different school of taught concerning what you should put in your email.
Some say that you should offer a product on every email (always be closing). Others say that you should build rapport first then introduce a product after a few emails.
It doesn’t matter which style you choose. As long as you email your prospect you will sell more. Again this is important, sending email will increase your bottom line no matter what you do.
Creating your messages
To create your messages, you can use one of the email template that Aweber offer. They have over a hundred to choose from. Select one and fill in the blank or use your own html template or just use a standard blank page.
Below is what the “Drag and Drop” editor looks like once you selected a template. You can add images, paragraph social media buttons. You can add link and pretty much anything. Once you’re done editing click save.
And there it is! Your first message in your autoresponder! All the messages for this list will be added here one after the other. You can edit them, change their order or delete them.
Every time time someone subscribe they will automatically start receiving your autoresponder starting with the first message in the series.
This is the best part about Aweber. You can track pretty much anything you want. Who open your email, who click a link inside the email, how many people purchase… You can even look for certain user and see exactly how many time they open an email click a link with the exact hour of the day they did it… EVERYTHING!
