I have been using AWeber for past 6 months in my office. I work in an IT company as a Senior Manager of Marketing. I have used all major email marketing tools such as Woodpecker, Convertkit etc. Every tool is unique and has been developed to perform certain task in email marketing.
I will cover these above mentioned tools as well in the next blogs. Where I will describe all pros and cons as well as thorough comparisons. For now let’s focus on AWeber. I will try to keep short and simple so that you can have complete idea about its features without spending more time.
Majority of people specially marketing professionals know what is Aweber. So I like to start from scratch to make everyone understood.
Aweber is an advance tool for email marketing. If you have products or even services, you surly send some newsletters/product information to your customers. You require tool such as Aweber to perform this task. I will tell you how it is going to help in your business.
AWeber allows you to create and send modern professional email newsletters that will go out to your audience using this powerful email marketing and automation tool makes it super simple and so easy to send these marketing messages out to your subscribers.
Email Newsletters – Now you can automatically create emails that can go from your latest blog post and again have those go out to your list or you can write in your own email and send out to your subscribers.
For instance, you’re having a sale or maybe you want to wish people happy holidays you can send out a message to your email list subscribers.
Let’s say someone signs up for a free report on your website where you can automatically have this, send a message to them and give them that free report and then you can have another message go out a few days later asking them if they read that free report and a few days after that you can have another message go out. This allows you to build trust with your audience so they feel like they know you they like you and start trusting you by this way your customers can buy more stuff from you and this is all through email automation
Drag-and-Drop Editor – It has over 700 mobile responsive email templates allow your emails to look really good on iPhones Android devices tablets, iPads, Kindles computers, laptops, PCs Macs, Linux machines pretty much anything you name it. You can view it nicely through the emails that are generated in there drag-and-drop editor and it makes it super simple and easy to use. It’s like making a little document in Microsoft Word.
HTML templates – Like many other email marketing tools AWeber also has HTML feature too, as we know it helps in creating greeting cards, Christmas cards, birthday cards as well as professional newsletters.
Aweber has most contemporary templates they consist classic and modern font styles, it has fresh image rich pre-built pages which fit for almost every occasion.
Email Automation or Auto responder Follow-Ups – This is a sequence of automatically delivered emails this is similar to the email automation series. The automotive responder follow-ups is just an older way of doing it it’s not as powerful as the email automation because the email automation you can combine that with the tagging and you can base things on.
Tagging feature which allows you to take your subscribers based on if they click or open items and that can send them different emails based off of the campaigns you send them so this is a really powerful segmentation feature that we’ve really been seeing in much more expensive tools for automating your business so it’s really nice to see this in AWeber.
Split Testing – Probably best feature ever any email marketing tool got. As we all know A / B testing where we test our subscribers behavior and taste by sending two or more campaigns. So you can analyze recipients’ interest and make future strategies.
For instance you can take two different subject lines for two campaigns, it will help in figuring out which subject line is performing better by analyzing open, click and response rate.
This feature is majorly used by market researcher or CXO level employees.
I already discussed top two features so lets move on to
RSS to email – so this can create emails from your latest blog posts so you just put in your RSS feed into Aweber and it can automatically email out your subscribers whenever you have a new blog post.

A – Sign up form can be added by ourselves (on landing page)
