  • Wed, 08 Aug 2018 18:21:28 +0000: How to Find Your Customers’ Pain Points - Email Marketing Tips

    People don’t buy a product or service just because it’s cheap or has flashy features. While these reasons might contribute to their purchase decision, they ultimately purchase a product because it solves a problem.

    Don’t have time to eat an expensive sit down meal? Grab food at McDonalds.

    Can't take high quality photos on your iPhone? Get a Nikon camera.

    Tired of driving to the gym everyday? Purchase an at-home workout program on DVD.

    If you understand your customers’ problems, you can position your product or service as the solution. That's why customer pain points are so important.

    What is a customer pain point?

    A customer pain point is a problem your audience faces that your product or service can resolve.

    By understanding customer pain points, you can promote your product or service more effectively and write convincing marketing copy. Your audience is much more likely to buy if you can clearly articulate how you’ll solve their problems or pain points.

    How can I find my customers’ pain points?

    Talk to your customers and audience. Ask them what they’re struggling with and how you can help them. Find out the specific way your product or service can resolve their issues.

    Here are a 3 simple methods to get your customers to share their pain points:

    1. Send your subscribers an email.

    Asking a simple question in an automated email is an easy way to learn more about your customers’ pain points. Thinkific, an online course hosting platform, asks subscribers to share what’s stopping them from creating an online course in their automated welcome series.

    The answers to this question can show them what educational content they should create to resolve customer pain points. Plus, they can write case studies that explain how Thinkific helps people overcome different course creation pain points.

    2. Survey your customers.

    Share a survey on your social channels or within an email and ask people to explain what they’re currently struggling with. In our own surveys, we often ask email subscribers to share their biggest email marketing challenge. We can then create educational content to resolve those challenges. For instance, we created our What to Write in Your Emails and Email List Growth Blueprint courses after receiving survey feedback requesting help with email copywriting and list growth.

    3. Speak with your customers.

    Ask a few customers to chat with you on the phone. Or, host an educational webinar and save time at the end for questions. Conversations with your customers are the best way to discover what their pain points are.

    What's an example of how I might use customer pain points in email marketing?

    Imagine you’re a social media expert who offers hourly consulting services to help businesses improve their social media strategy. Here are a few pain points your potential customers might struggle with:

    1. They’re too busy to regularly post on social media.
    2. They don’t know what content to share on their social platforms.
    3. They know they should be using Facebook ads, but they don’t know how to set them up or get them to work.
    4. They’re unsure how to grow their social following.
    5. They have a large social media audience, but they don’t know how to get those followers to buy.

    Using this example, let’s say you want to focus on acquiring customers who need help with #3: Facebook ad strategy.

    You know that a common customer pain point is not understanding how to set up a Facebook ad. So you decide to create a digital guide called 5 Simple Steps to Set Up Your First Facebook Ad, and you use it as an incentive on your sign up form.

    When people subscribe to receive this incentive, you send them the following automated email series:

    Email 1: Here’s your free guide to Facebook ads!

    In this email, you welcome subscribers to your email list and you give them your free guide 5 Simple Steps to Set Up Your First Facebook Ad.

    Email 2: Why Facebook ads are the best way to acquire leads

    This email proves that Facebook ads are worth investing in.

    Email 3: Here’s how I helped one business earn $50,000 with Facebook ads

    To demonstrate that your expert advice helps people get results, you share a case study that explains how you helped one business launch successful Facebook ads.

    Email 4: Need help launching effective Facebook ads?

    In the final email of your series, you sell your Facebook ad services. You explain that you can help the reader launch effective Facebook ads and grow their business. Then, you ask them to purchase a consultation session with you.

    This entire email series is based on a simple customer pain point. It's effective because it positions the business' service as a solution to that pain point.

    Want more educational content like this?

    Subscribe to AWeber’s free weekly newsletter. You’ll learn how to send emails that get results, discover the best ways to grow your email list, and much more.

  • Wed, 01 Aug 2018 15:22:06 +0000: How to Keep GDPR Records of Consent for Your Subscribers - Email Marketing Tips

    The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requires that you can prove the nature of consent between you and your subscribers. That means you must keep comprehensive records of how subscribers joined your list if you want to comply with the law.

    But keeping records of consent for your subscribers can seem daunting, no matter what your email list size. 

    Fortunately, it doesn't have to be difficult or time consuming.

    Below are two simple ways you can keep records of how you collect subscribers’ personal data.

    Disclaimer: This blog post is for informational purposes only, and you should not consider it legal advice. We recommend that you seek legal and other professional counsel to determine exactly how the GDPR might apply to you.

    Two key data points to record for GDPR consent

    To prove you are GDPR compliant, you must be able to prove what a subscriber has consented to when signing up for your list. There are two parts to this:

    1. the sign up source (i.e. the webpage they visited to sign up)
    2. a copy of the form or mechanism they used to sign up at the time they subscribed

    AWeber automatically records the sign up source within your subscribers’ records, so we have you covered there.

    But it’s a bit more complex to record a copy of the sign up form. Why? Because you may have more than one sign up form on your site, or you may change your form from time to time, making it difficult to show exactly what the sign up form looked like at the time of signup.

    The best way to record a copy of your sign up forms will depend on a few factors:

    1. Do you have have multiple email sign up forms?
    2. Do you regularly change your email sign up forms?
    3. Do you run split tests on your email sign up forms?

    How you answer these questions will impact the way in which you keep records of your sign up forms.

    Related: Your GDPR + Email Marketing Playbook: How to Prepare for the EU Data Law

    “I only have a single sign up form, and NEVER change it or run split tests on my form.”

    If you have a single sign up form that never changes, you should be able to manually record it since all subscribers join your list the same way.

    Simply take a screenshot of the form using any commonly available software (like the Snipping Tool for Windows or Skitch for Mac) or a built-in feature on your Mac or PC.

    However, a screenshot doesn’t provide you with the destination of any links on the form, such as a link to a privacy policy. So note any such URL in an accompanying text file, or add it to the screenshot image using basic editing software (like Preview on Mac or Canva).

    Another alternative is to save the underlying HTML or Javascript code from your AWeber sign up form. To do this, simply copy and paste the code into a plain text file.

    Once you’ve created a record of your sign up form, save the file in multiple places, such as your computer, an external hard drive, and a cloud-based storage service like Google Drive or Dropbox.

    “What if I change the signup form later?” No problem. All you have to do is repeat the process above to make a new manual record, and add the details to your documentation. Be sure to retain the old record, too.

    Related: 6 Myths about the GDPR and Email Marketing Debunked

    “I have multiple signup forms, I change my form regularly, or I run split tests on my forms.”

    It would be a lot of work to manually record and manage multiple or changing signup forms, while also verifying which subscribers came through specific versions of the forms.

    In this case, we recommend using a service like optinopoli to automate the recording process. We discovered this service when were looking for ways to make GDPR consent recording easier for our AWeber customers. In our research, we haven't been able to find any other tools that automate the recording process in this way. (If you know of one, please tell us in the comments below!)

    But quick note: In order to use optinopoli’s auto-recording feature, you’ll need to sign up for one of their paid accounts, which starts at $19 per month. AWeber is not an affiliate of optinopoli.

    How to auto-record signup forms

    optinopoli, which integrates with AWeber, is a signup form tool designed to help you collect subscribers on your website and grow your list.

    Unlike other sign up form builders, it has the ability to automatically record the version of the sign up form used by each of your subscribers.

    Related: 9 Inspiring Sign Up Form Ideas to Grow Your Email List

    Here’s how it works to record your forms:

    For each new subscriber coming through an optinopoli™ form on your website, the app sends you a notification via email. These notifications are optional, but you’ll need to leave it on to take advantage of the auto-recording facility.

    I recommend setting up a filtered folder in your inbox make managing all of the notifications easier (and to save your inbox from getting clogged!). You can receive and store these notifications in there.

    Another alternative: Create a separate email account where these notifications can be sent and stored.

    Within the notification, you’ll see a link for the sign up form used. If you click the link, you’ll see the exact form used by the subscriber displayed in a new browser window.

    If you’re running a split test on your forms, the app will also record any variations of the form. You’ll get the record of the actual form used by the subscriber.

    Pro tip: Set the lead notifications to go to a cloud-based email account, such as Gmail, where the emails can be safely and permanently stored in the cloud.

    Once you’re set up with optinopoli, be sure to test your new form and lead notification. Make sure your notification contains the link to the auto-recorded signup form.

    Following the steps outlined above enables you to keep comprehensive records of consent for your subscribers. Questions? Ask me below!

  • Wed, 25 Jul 2018 14:33:46 +0000: The Easiest Way to Skyrocket Your Open Rates - Email Marketing Tips

    email preheader

    Less than three seconds.

    That’s the average amount of time you have to capture a subscriber's attention in his or her crowded inbox, according to a study from marketing company Movable Ink. Talk about a short window.

    So what's an easy way to make an impact and stand out? Include an email preheader in each message you send. 

    What Is an Email Preheader?

    When viewing a message in your inbox, an email preheader — also known as the Johnson Box or preview text — is a snippet of text shown next to or underneath the subject line.

    Typically, they are 50 to 100 characters or about 6 to 11 words. But they may display differently depending on which device or which Internet Service Provider (ISP) like Gmail or Yahoo! they are opened on. Below you can see an email preheader on a desktop inbox, and another email preheader on a mobile inbox. 

    email preheader

    Why is an email preheader important?

    When written well, an email preheader is a powerful tool to improve your engagement. 

    Unfortunately, though, many email marketers don't take advantage of the preheader. They spend lots of time crafting the perfect subject line, but barely think twice about the preheader text. So they leave it blank, or fill it out with some generic information.

    In fact, here are a handful of common preheaders I found in my inbox.

    “Click here if you are having trouble viewing this message”

    “You are part of an email list, you can unsubscribe here

    “This message contains images, please enable images”

    None of these necessarily make your subscriber want to scream " I have to open this message!" So what kind of preheader will make your subscriber click open?

    4 Ways to Write an Effective Email Preheader

    Below are four ways to write an email preheader that will skyrocket your open rates. 

    #1: Sum up the content inside

    Add more context to your subject line with your preheader text. In it, give a short summary of what the reader can expect to find inside the message. This may further entice your subscriber to click on the message so they can read the full content.

    Example: Google Home

    Subject line: Lauren, welcome to your Google Home Mini

    Email preheader: 3 ways to get the most out of your new Mini

    #2: Request an action

    Use the email preheader to make your readers take an action. Tell them what you want them to do!

    Do you want them to open the message? Do you want them to click on a link? Fill out your survey? Let them know what you want them to do and why you want them to do it.

    Example: Ulta Beauty

    Subject Line: Take a look at your ultimate rewards statement, Lauren!

    Email preheader: Check out these beautiful offers, too. Open to see all the ways beauty loves you back!

    #3: Use FOMO

    The "fear of missing out" or FOMO is a powerful pscyhological trigger. If you want a subscriber to take advantage of a special offer or deal — such as free shipping or a discount code — tell them about it in the preheader. They'll be tempted to open right away if they know the offer is exclusive or a limited-time.

    And you want them to open right away! Chances are, if they don't open when they see the message for the first time, they won't come back the next day or next week to do it. 

    Example: Michaels Craft Store

    Subject line: Last Day: Summer Cyber Sale! An Online Bonus Coupon and Free Shipping, no minimum

    Email preheader: Drop-What-You’re-Doing Doorbusters and Deals. Don’t miss out!

    #4: Get creative

    Your subscribers want to do business with people they know, like, and trust — as opposed to a faceless corporation. Humanize your preheader text to increase connection and engagement with your subscriber. Use the small block of text to show your company is likeable and relatable, and your subscribers will be more likely to open the message.

    Example: PECO

    Subject line: PECO can help you keep cool for less this summer

    Email preheader: Rising temperatures make it harder to stay cool and comfortable inside. But don’t sweat it!

    How to add a preheader in AWeber

    With recent updates to AWeber's Drag and Drop Email Builder, adding an email preheader to your message is now easier than ever! All it takes is just the click of a single button.

    aweber drag and drop email builder

    From within the message editor directly under “message properties”, you can simply add the text you wish to display with your subject line when the message is sent.

    If you want to personalize your email preheader for your subscriber to include their name, email address, or any other of their subscriber information, you can do so as well! You can accomplish this using personalization snippets within the ‘message preheader’ text box directly.

  • Mon, 23 Jul 2018 17:30:16 +0000: 3 Ways to Keep the Audience Hanging on Your Every Word - Email Marketing Tips

    public speaking tips

    Public speaking is a lot like email marketing. It’s a way to inspire action, garner attention, and create a remarkable connection with your audience through your words.

    That’s why AWeber is teaming up with Michael Port, New York Times bestselling author of Steal the Show and co-founder of Heroic Public Speaking, to offer a 3-part webinar series focused on helping nail your next speech, interview, pitch, or email. Port will tell you how to captivate and engage your audience — whether they’re listening to you on a podcast, reading your email, or watching you on stage.

    In the first webinar of the 3-part webinar series — How to Crush Every Speaking Gig You Land — Port shares 2 of the biggest mistakes new speakers make and the 5 elements of the world’s greatest speeches. Here are 3 key takeaways from his presentation that you can apply to your own email marketing strategy.

    (Missed Port's first webinar? No worries. Register here, and instantly watch the replay.)

    Write first, design second

    We often fall into the trap of focusing on how our presentation or email will look before creating the actual content. What we don’t realize is that by doing this, we hurt our ability to create a powerful, motivating message, says Port. By focusing on design first, we put ourselves inside a self-imposed box, limiting our potential to get to the heart of the big idea we are trying to convey, and what we want the audience to think, feel, and do, he explains.

    Port recommends resisting the temptation to focus on your presentation’s, website’s, or email’s design. Instead, start with the content and what you want your audience to think or feel, and what you want them to do. Then you can focus on which templates and images to use to support your message.

    Rehearse the right way

    Most new speakers don’t really rehearse, says Port. They usually run through their speech or pitch in their own head, perhaps muttering some sentences under their breath. When it comes time to give the speech, however, they’re not dialed in to the content. They don’t know the content well enough to recall it in the moment, explains Port.

    If you want to nail your speech, you need to rehearse, rehearse, and rehearse some more.

    The same goes for your email. You’d never walk up on stage without practicing your speech — and you shouldn’t send an email without practicing, either.

    (Want to grow your audience? Try AWeber — a time-saving, easy-to-use marketing platform. Start your 30-day free trial.)

    Always test your email before you hit send. Is the content appearing correctly on different Internet Service Providers, like Gmail, Yahoo!, or Outlook? How does your subject line and preheader text appear on mobile? Are your images rendering correctly? Are your links right?

    Related: Don't Crash and Burn! 3 Ways to Test Your Email before Hitting Send

    With anything you create, whether it’s a speech, presentation, website, or email, it’s important to  gather feedback before you go “live.” Even if it’s just friends, family, or coworkers. As you get feedback, you’ll learn what works and what doesn’t, and you can make tweaks before you get up on stage or send your email to your entire subscriber list.

    Picture yourself in underwear

    Have you ever heard this advice? “Picture your audience in their underwear.” Port says this is a mistake.

    “The truth of the matter is, it’s the performer who’s naked,” Port explains. “That’s why [speaking is] anxiety provoking. Our role is actually the one to be naked.”

    One of the best ways to increase the level of your performance and create an strong connection with your audience is to demonstrate vulnerability when speaking. “A speech has nothing to do with you. It’s never about you,” he says. “It’s about the audience and what you’re getting them to think, feel, or do.”

    Related: How to Get Free Media Attention for Your Small Business

    Port encourages you to strip away your armor — a.k.a. your internal judgement about the way people perceive you — to truly connect with your audience. Take down the barrier. After all, you’re not there for the audience’s approval, he says. You’re there to serve the audience.

    You should follow the same rule when writing emails to your subscribers. Serve them. Address their biggest pain point and offer them a solution. But don't pretend to be someone else in your emails. Or be boring or bland.

    The best email marketers have their own tone, look, and feel — and they don’t waver from it. They’re true to themselves. They’re authentic. And their subscribers love them for it.

  • Thu, 19 Jul 2018 14:07:28 +0000: Create Modern, Sleek Emails Faster than Ever - Email Marketing Tips

    Drag and drop email builder.

    Email has changed quite a bit since AWeber sent its first automated message 20 years ago!

    And as email marketing changes, the tools we use every day to create and send must change as well.

    In continuing our mission to help creators, entrepreneurs, and small businesses connect with their audience in remarkable ways, we set out (with your help) to construct a better email builder.

    (Want to try out the new Drag and Drop email builder? Create your FREE AWeber account today!)

    Introducing your new email builder

    Create modern, sleek emails faster than ever with the new Email Builder from AWeber. Watch the video below to see the Drag and Drop Email Builder in use.

    We asked users what they needed from an email builder. Our goal was simple: Develop an email-building experience that’s fast, intuitive, clean, and easy-to-use for our customers. You don't need to know a lick of code, or be a graphic designer to send emails that look great on any device.

    Awesome new features and layouts

    We did more than simply apply a “fresh coat of paint.” This new email builder is faster, smoother, and has a few new features.

    The biggest change you’ll notice is the reconstruction of the canvas to match the three-column layout found in our automation platform, Campaigns.

    You’ll also feel the difference when dragging and dropping elements into your email templates, and when reordering elements within the email. The experience of building an email is now more fluid and flexible.

    Customize your preheader text

    The most requested new feature is the ability to customize your preheader text!

    The preheader text is the snippet of preview text that appears next to your subject line. It’ll look different on mobile devices and desktop clients.

    Customizing your pre-header text is a great way to encourage subscribers to open your messages.

    Pro-tip: This field even accepts personalization snippets, so you can include your subscriber’s first name in the preheader text if you’ve collected it.

    Improved "Share This" element

    We’ve also revamped our “Share This” element, which allows your subscribers to share an archive link or custom link from your email to their social channels. Inviting your subscribers to share your email content is a great way to grow your list.

    We’ve made it easier to adjust the style and size of your social sharing buttons.

    Flexible new email layouts

    With the rollout of the new builder, we’re also releasing 8 new email templates called layouts.

    These layouts are a set of modern, unbranded email templates. Just add your own brand logo and colors. Save each customized layout as a new template for every occasion –– like announcements, personal letters, product reveals, etc.

    Start building awesome emails today

    With your new Drag & Drop Email Builder and sleek layouts, you’re now equipped to create modern emails in minutes.
