View Full Version : Been Avoiding AWeber...
02-28-2011, 12:17 PM
Knocked AWeber into a cocked hat! Been resisting and moaning about AWeber for a year! Finally got it up and running thanks to their super chat people and actually wrote 25 little pieces to go out every 7 days. That's 6 months' worth!
Friended Twitter again, after a long "divorce" coz I just couldn't face it. 4 tweets daily is my goal, referring viewers to my website to generate traffic.

Way to go Skipper!

You are such an inspiration. I have an Aweber account since last year and have not been as active as I should be. After reading your post, I will be revisiting Aweber again.

GO FOR IT! I suddenly realized that having an autoresponder was REALLY IMPORTANT to my biz. Where have I been all this time, paying my $19 per month for close to a year and doing zip! That's over $200 down the tubes. They have an excellent chat service that is sooo patient! Keep us posted on your progress!

I actually hired someone to do my mailing list management. I send her my content and she takes care of the rest. Saves me time on techy stuff.

Skipper you are not alone! I've also had Aweber for a while and not used it, so am motivated to try again.

OK. Now's the time! First, I need you to create a list. So login to your account and look for a button that says "Create a List". The name of the list has to be unique among all Aweber users because it will create an email address like listname@Aweber.com. Then just follow the steps to fill out the information or watch the video tutorial.
If you get stuck, let me know where.
You can do this! Don't let the unknown keep you from starting. We'll take it in baby steps.
Report back when you are ready to move to the next step.

This post reminds me that we all have things that get us stuck. And then when help is taken we feel like we can take the first step and then another and soon we will be running. There are many things that I get stuck at and when I keep them bottled and don't ask for help I stay there and don't grow. All we have to do is ask for help with the first step and then we can be on our way.
So thankful for this safe forum so we can all ask for help.

Congrats, Skipper! :) My lists are responsible for a HUGE chunk of my profits. Make sure you've set up a blog broadcast to go out to your list, too, if appropriate so that you're automatically keeping in touch with your fans.
I'm proud of you!

Way to go Skipper!
List building and usig BOTH broadcasts and follow up messages effectively is where the real leverage of an internet-powered business takes off.
I love that you planned out 6 months of content already - but don't stop there. Keep adding quality posts, surprise PDF downloads, links to your favorite blog posts and videos, etc., to your follow up sequence.
Nicole's tip for the blog broadcast is huge, too. This is a great way to automatically send out your recent posts in a digest to your subscribers, while adding credibility and branding in the template of your blog broadcast.

The beauty of putting aside a few hours (or even a weekend) to create a list and load a series of follow-up e-mails. Once it's done, it runs on autopilot, with very little maintenance.
One of my main mailing lists has a 22-mail follow-up series. I wrote the e-mails over the period of a few days, on a laptop while riding trains. It's been running on autopilot for 5 years, and I've only reviewed and edited the series twice in those years (mainly changing a few outdated links).

I use to panic over anything techie. But I love Aweber. Their support desk is very helpful and patient. Use them.
I also found that if I tackled a new thing in the am it seemed to go better for me than later in the day. Why? who knows. Just an observation.
Good Luck. You should be proud of yourself.
