    AWeber AMP for Email Carousel

    AWeber's Image Carousel powered by AMP for Email

    Over the summer, AWeber announced that it was the first small business email service provider to support the new AMP for Email technology! Now, we’re excited to share the latest evolution in how we’re making it powerfully-simple for you to use AMP for Email inside AWeber.

    AMP stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages. When paired with AWeber, the powerful technology has the ability to completely transform how you connect with your prospects and customers via email.

    With AWeber and AMP for Email, your subscribers won’t have to leave the inbox or head to their browser to visit a web page. Instead, they can RSVP to an event, sign up for a newsletter, leave a product review, answer a survey, or view a live package shipping update — all inside your email!

    Big news! AWeber has now added one of the most popular AMP for Email features — an image carousel — to our drag-and-drop email editor. The AWeber Image Carousel, powered by AMP for Email, is an interactive element that rotates through multiple slides of images. You can include photos, GIFs, blog posts, or products. As an AWeber customer, all you need to do is click the Carousel element in the tool box and drag it into your email. Then, add up to 6 images.

    Previously, if you wanted to include multiple images, you had to stack them one on top of the other, taking up valuable space in your email. The AWeber Image Carousel is compact, interactive, and beautiful. Watch the video below to see how easy it is to use the Carousel inside AWeber.

    AMP for Email turns static emails into interactive and dynamic content. By removing layers of friction and allowing people to directly engage with content faster, you’ll reduce the number of steps your audience has to take to respond to an offer or promotion, and ultimately drive more business.

    That’s why AWeber is continuously evolving how powerfully-simple it is for you to send AMP for Email-powered messages inside our platform. We want you to see success faster than ever before.

    The AWeber Image Carousel, powered by AMP for Email, is just the start. Through AWeber’s API, you can also create other powerfully-engaging interactive and dynamic content using AMP for Email components. (See how we've been experimenting with other AMP elements inside AWeber's own weekly newsletter, FWD: Thinking.) If you send these AMP components through AWeber, they will display in Gmail, Outlook, and Mail.ru messages TODAY!

    How to Get Started with AMP for Email in AWeber

    There are a few simple steps you’ll need to take to get started with using AMP for Email and the Carousel inside AWeber.

    You can receive a full rundown on how to use AMP for Email with AWeber. Sign up for our free webinar on January 17.

  • Wed, 11 Dec 2019 15:51:28 +0000: 5 Ridiculously Cool Ways We’ve Used AMP for Email - Email Marketing Tips

    AWeber and AMP for Email

    Everything you know about email is about to dramatically change forever. 

    That’s a bold statement, but it’s true...I know because my AWeber teammates and I are using revolutionary email technology that wasn’t widely available a year ago. In fact, we were one of the first marketing teams to start using it a few months ago. 

    I’m talking about AMP for Email.

    What is AMP for Email?

    With AMP (which stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages) for Email, your message is no longer a stagnant document that gathers dust inside an inbox after it’s read. It’s now a living, ever-changing experience that encourages the reader to stick around. To explore. To interact. To come back again and again. To participate.

    It transforms a previously static medium into an interactive and dynamic channel in which to communicate with your audience.

    That means readers can book an appointment, RSVP to an event, sign up for a newsletter, leave a product review, answer a survey or quiz, or view a live package shipping update — inside an email.  They never need to open a new window or head to their browser.

    AMP for Email became available in Gmail in March 2019. The tech is still in its infancy and only currently available for Gmail, Outlook, and Mail.ru users, but it will become more widespread and robust in the very near future.

    And right now, AWeber is the only small business email service provider to support the new AMP for Email technology for our customers. We are continuously evolving how powerfully-simple it is for you to send AMP for Email-powered messages in AWeber.

    “By adding AMP message support to our API, we’re ensuring our customers have the most up-to-date tools and technology at their fingertips to create messages that will help them connect with their customers and rapidly grow their businesses,” said Chris Vasquez, Director of Product at AWeber.

    AWeber isn’t just empowering customers to use AMP for Email. We’re using it ourselves.

    How AWeber is using AMP for Email in our own email marketing

    Since AMP for Email launched, my teammates and I have been using the tech in our weekly email marketing newsletter, FWD: Thinking. In fact, anywhere from 25% to 30% of all clicks on the newsletter’s main call-to-action (CTA) come from readers viewing an AMP-enabled version. (We still send an HTML version every week, too, for people not using Gmail, Outlook, or Mail.ru.)

    We’ve only scratched the surface of what we can do with the technology, but it’s exciting to experiment to see which AMP elements drive the most engagement from our newsletter readers. Keep reading for a list of some of the interactive and dynamic AMP for Email content we’ve tested so far.

    AMP for Email: Image Carousel 

    We showed off our free, seasonal GIF guides in interactive image carousels inside the newsletter. As a FWD: Thinking reader, you could easily click or tap the arrows inside the email to scroll through a handful of GIFs. 

    If you weren’t viewing the AMP-enabled version of the newsletter, you would have seen a single GIF at the top of the email. You had to click into the blog post to view more.

    Big news! We just added the AWeber Image Carousel, powered by AMP for Email, into our drag-and-drop email builder. Just drag it into your email and add up to 6 images. You can use it today! Not an AWeber customer yet? Sign up for a free trial of AWeber.

    We have tested the image carousel with two GIF guides so far:

    Fall GIF Guide, August 2019

    AWeber Image Carousel AMP for Email

    Check out AWeber's Fall GIF Guide.

    Holiday GIF Guide, November 2019

    Check out AWeber's Holiday GIF Guide.

    The percentage of readers clicking the AMP image carousel element increased by 28% from our Fall GIF Guide to our Holiday GIF Guide. 

    The Holiday GIF Guide could have been more popular among AMP viewers, but we doubted that could account for such a drastic increase.

    One of the main reasons we can surmise for the significant boost in engagement? In the short time between the two emails, Outlook made AMP for Email available and GSuite rolled out AMP support so it was turned on by default. 

    Our hypothesis: The pool of potential FWD: Thinking readers seeing AMP for Email elements in their inboxes (desktop and mobile) is increasing every single month as more Internet Service Providers make it available. The percentage of people interacting with AMP elements will only continue to go up.

    AMP for Email: Feedback Form

    We’ve always collected questions and feedback from our readers. It helps pinpoint our readers’ biggest pain points and spur new educational content ideas. 

    In the past, the CTA for our newsletter’s feedback form took you to a separate webpage to fill out. With AMP for email, you can now submit your question directly into the email. No leaving the inbox! This reduces friction for the user and increases our likelihood of garnering responses. 

    AWeber Feedback Form AMP for Email

    Our readers who received the AMP-enabled version of the newsletter noticed the change. One subscriber, Andre V., even wrote into the feedback form:

    I have a question about this form in the email... Does it submit? What wizardry is this?

    Andre, meet AWeber’s sorcerer, AMP for Email.

    AMP for Email: Sentiment Widget

    AWeber gives all customers the option to add sentiment widgets to their emails. You can think of them as quick “temperature checks” to make sure your subscribers find your content useful or not.

    Previously, the sentiment widget would take you to a separate landing page outside of your inbox. There, you could add more info about why you liked or didn’t like the email.

    AMP for Email, however, allowed us to make this element interactive and dynamic. Not only can you click on the smiley or frowny face within the email, but you can also write your response inside the message, too.

    AWeber Sentiment Widget AMP for Email

    Plus, you can find out how many other subscribers felt the same as you. If you leave the message, come back later, and click the face again, the numbers may update depending on how many people interacted with the AMP element while you were gone.

    AMP for Email: Polls and Quizzes

    We recently conducted a quiz inside our FWD: Thinking newsletter using AMP for Email. (It’s a lot like the quizzes you see inside Instagram or Facebook stories.) 

    AWeber Email Quiz AMP for Email

    After you clicked on an answer, you were automatically given the correct answer and the percentage breakdown of how many other FWD: Thinking subscribers chose each answer. 

    Just like with our AMP for Email sentiment widget, if you left the newsletter and came back later, you could see updated percentages of subscribers’ answers.

    So what happened if you didn’t have access to AMP? You were taken to a separate landing page that gave you the answer to the quiz. However, you never got to see the dynamic breakdown of subscriber percentages clicking on each answer. 

    We also conducted a poll to see if people were sending Black Friday and/or Cyber Monday email campaigns this year — and we offered the final results in a followup email the next week. 

    AWeber Email Poll AMP for Email

    The experience for AMP users was the same as the quiz. You received a percentage breakdown of subscribers who were or were not sending Cyber Weekend email campaigns. If you didn’t have AMP, you were sent outside of the inbox to a separate landing page.

    Overall, for both the quiz and the poll, we saw about 20 to 25% of the total clicks come from people using the AMP for Email element.

    Next Steps: AMP for Email inside AWeber

    Right now, getting set up to send AMP for Email messages takes a bit of work since you need to authenticate your sending domain and apply to be an AMP for Email sender in Gmail, Mail.ru, and Outlook. Get the full directions on how to get started with AMP for Email here.

    But once you’re all set up to send AMP for Email, AWeber’s product team is making it as seamless and as powerfully-simple as possible for our customers to send AMP messages through our platform. We are currently the only small business email marketing provider that offers AMP for Email capability in our API, and we launched  the AWeber Image Carousel, powered by AMP for Email, in our drag-and-drop email builder.

    Best practices for using holiday GIFs in email

    1. Don't overdo it: Use only one GIF per email.

    2. Actually, only use a GIF when you think it'll help your email perform better. If it distracts your subscriber from reading your message or clicking on your call-to-action, then skip the GIF.

    3. Consider removing all other images besides your GIF so that subscribers aren’t overwhelmed with visuals.

    4. Hyperlink your GIF to the landing page you’d like people to visit. (Many people will click on the GIF itself.)

    5. Creating your own GIF? Include your call to action in the first frame. That way, your subscribers can click through even if the animation doesn’t work.

    6. Always test your emails. Most email clients will display GIFs, but there are a some exceptions like Outlook 2007-2013 and Windows Phone 7. In these clients, the GIFs will display as static images.

    Related: 3 Ways to Test Your Emails before You Hit 'Send'

    7. Keep your GIF’s file size small (aim for less than 40KB). You can use Photoshop to decrease the file size if need be.

    8. Your GIF should be relevant to the rest of the content in your email. Make sure it supplements your subject line, call to action, and message text.

    9. No matter what GIF you use, make your call to action loud and clear. (Here are 8 Powerful Email Copywriting Techniques to use in your next email.)

    10. Test a GIF in different locations within your email to see where it performs best. (AWeber's powerful split testing feature allows you to test GIF placement, subject lines, send times, copy, templates, buttons, and more! Try it out today for FREE.)

  • Wed, 13 Nov 2019 17:51:30 +0000: The 5 Emails You Should Send This Cyber Monday to Skyrocket Sales - Email Marketing Tips

    cyber monday email examples

    Cyber Monday’s online sales hit an all-time high in 2018, capping out at a record $7.9 billion, according to Adobe Analytics. That’s an increase of 19.3% from the previous year — and sales are only expected to go up this December.

    Are you ready to hit “go” on your Cyber Monday email campaign? Here’s a content calendar you can use to make sure you’re maximizing your promotion. 

    Your 5-Email Campaign for Cyber Monday 2019

    November 29: Send your "teaser" email. Tease your promotion with a “preview” email sent out three days* before Cyber Monday. Let your subscribers know something big is coming on December 2 — but don’t tell them what. Get them excited for the announcement.

    *You don’t want this email to go out more than three days in advance or you might cannibalize your sales leading up to the promotion going live. People may be hesitant to purchase if they know a better deal is just a few days away.

    December 1: Send a countdown email. The night before your promotion goes live, send a 12-hour countdown email to your audience. (The anticipation!) You can schedule this ahead of time inside your AWeber account.

    Don't have an AWeber account yet? Sign up for a 30-day free trial, and get your Cyber Monday emails scheduled!

    December 2 (morning): Launch your promotion. Send your promotion — whether it’s a coupon code that gives your subscribers a certain percentage off their purchase, a free gift with their purchase, or a special giveaway for the first 200 customers who purchase — on Cyber Monday.

    Related: Automatically Create Your Own Beautiful, Branded Email Template in Seconds!

    December 2 (afternoon): Resend your promotion. Not all your subscribers will engage with your email. That's okay: Their inboxes are flooded on Cyber Monday with deals. That’s why I recommend resending your message to anyone on your list who didn’t open or click later in the day. It’s another opportunity for you to reach them. 

    December 3: Post-promotion email. With AWeber, you can “tag” subscribers that go from your promotion emails and hit a certain page of your website. The next day, send that group of subscribers that made it to a certain product page or the checkout — but never ended up making a purchase — a followup email. Let them know the product is still available, reiterate the benefits of purchasing, and tell them that you’ll extend the promotion another few hours just for them!

    Creative Cyber Monday Email Examples 

    Below are a few of our favorite Cyber Monday email marketing ideas from years past. Use them as fodder to create and launch your own email marketing campaign with AWeber this Cyber Monday. 

    Cyber Monday Email: Chubbies 

    Chubbies, the brand that's known for short shorts (think: “Larry Byrd” short shorts…i.e. lots of skin), had fun with their Cyber Monday email campaign. They called it Thighber Monday, and turned it into an event.

    A new free gift — like duffle bags, blankets, hats, and more — was revealed every hour of Thighber Monday via email. If you bought a product on their site, you would receive that hour’s free gift along with your purchase. 

    The campaign kept people coming back to their inbox hour after hour to check out which free gift would be unveiled next.

    Cyber Monday Email Chubbies

    Cyber Monday Email: Melyssa Griffin

    Digital marketer and coach Melyssa Griffin helps bloggers and entrepreneurs grow their audiences and incomes. For Cyber Monday, Melyssa bundled all her online courses together for a fantastic deal. Bundling or packaging certain products can make the promotion feel larger and more impactful than giving a discount for each separate item.

    Cyber Monday Email: Taco Bell

    Taco Bell didn’t offer a Cyber Monday promotion. Instead, they banked on how hungry you’d be after a long day of online shopping. Taco ‘bout a novel idea.

Using an autoresponder can help you keep your product in front of prospects even while you’re giving them the extra information they need before making a purchase. An autoresponder is designed to send out emails automatically to the people on your subscriber list. Traditionally, autoresponders were used to send emails automatically when you’re not available.

However, it’s possible to set up a sequential autoresponder to automatically send out a series of emails at pre-set times. For example, you might want to offer your subscribers a ‘tip of the day’about your product, so you’d set your autoresponder to send out a new tip each day for you. This article will look at some ways you can use an autoresponder to help increase your business.

The biggest benefit of using an autoresponder service is the sense of surety or trust that comes with. All service providers value your business. So they know they must take care of your business with their services. Their equipment is heavy duty and will be able to take care of any volume of mailing. It doesn’t matter how large your list. You can email your lists in various formats, as well. You’ll be able to send a test email which is always a good idea. This feature alone can save you tons of headaches.

In addition to all the other benefits, you’ll also gain a little peace of mind. Not a bad thing to have. No worries about taking care of a large list should you get to that point. All this allows you to be hopeful about your business future, and you’ll have the ability to participate in real automatic marketing. Apart from this, an autoresponder also allows you to customize your email messages so that you are able to interact with your subscribers directly in a conversational tone. You’ll still retain the personal touch with this level of automation. Your emails will seem like they were hand crafted and hand delivered.

It’s no coincidence that all highly successful online businesses use autoresponders and list marketing. Having a plan to always be striving for increasing your customer base should be part of your long term business goals.

profitable and haven’t a clue – then it will be very tough. Let’s move on and

An example of a simple
autoresponder can be found in email services like Gmail, where you can set your
autoresponder. If you’ve ever sent an email to someone and gotten a fast,
