  • Thu, 15 Jun 2017 20:16:05 +0000: Release Notes: Exciting Upgrades to Your Stats and Atom Apps - Email Marketing Tips

    Don't let your email marketing efforts stop after hitting send.

    Our mobile team recently delivered two new versions of our top mobile apps, AWeber Stats and Atom. Check out how to take advantage of these new features and download these free apps today.

    Get to know your subscribers with AWeber Stats

    Our previous release of AWeber Stats 2.1 introduced an improved presentation of your Broadcast stats, including an easier view of key metrics and unsubscribes. We received a lot of great feedback on Stats 2.1 from our app users – and we took that to heart!

    For this most recent update of AWeber Stats 2.2.3, our skilled mobile team applied your feedback to deliver a redesigned Subscribers page. In addition to the information you had access to before, you can now:

    See your total subscribers per list, as well as quick stats on how many subscribers joined today or unsubscribed.

    Subscriber detail page.

    Scroll through your list and easily see a subscriber's name, email address, avatar (if available,) total opens, total clicks, and the date and time of subscription. You can also learn more about an individual subscriber by tapping a single person to reveal a redesigned subscriber detail view.

    Discover where the subscribed signed up, how many broadcasts they've received, and their open rate and click rate percentages (based on the total messages delivered to their inbox).

    By having your account, broadcast, and subscriber details at your fingertips, you'll always be a few swipes away from analyzing your performance and planning your next great email strategy.

    Upgrade AWeber Stats now, or download now on Android or iOS.

    Deliver segmented, contextual campaigns using tags with Atom

    Never leave home without your sign up form. Using AWeber's Atom app (which now supports tags), you can create a beautiful sign up form on your mobile device or tablet.

    This allows you to collect subscribers wherever you may roam – whether you're at a conference, networking event, or behind the counter of your own storefront. Quickly and easily add subscribers with Atom, and they'll be seamlessly added to a list of your choosing.

    With Atom 2.1, you also get they ability to add tags to your mobile sign up form.

    At AWeber, we promote writing contextual and personalized emails. One simple way to do this is to deliver emails based on where a subscriber signed up.

    Using tags, you can now trigger smart, personalized automated email campaigns.

    Here are a two quick examples on how you might use this for your list:

    Networking follow-ups

    At a networking event? Create a campaign that will be started by the "Tag Applied" trigger. Set the tag to be the name of the "networking event." Then, add this tag to your Atom form. You can even set the campaign to be sent with a 24-hour delay. The content for this campaign can be relevant to the networking event:

    Hello {!firstname_fix},

    It was great to meet you at [Insert Networking Event].

    I wanted to share a quick link to my blog [or share some other valuable resource], which you might appreciate. 

    Let's definitely keep in touch,

    [Your name and signature]

    Now you can easily automate that initial follow-up with a single email campaign.

    Retail promotions

    If you have a storefront, you can use Atom as a digital kiosk to collect subscribers. To incentivize them to sign up (and make another purchase), promote a discount that can be used for future visits.

    Create a campaign that will be started by the "Tag Applied" trigger. Set the tag to something like "atom-store." Add this tag to your Atom form. The content for this email campaign can be relevant to the promotion.

    Hello {!firstname_fix},

    Thanks for stopping by the store and signing up for our email newsletter!

    Next time you come back, please mention the code "EMAIL10" to receive 10% [or your custom code and discount offer] off your next purchase.

    Be on the lookout for future promotions and announcements in our weekly newsletter, delivered every [insert your send schedule; ex: every Thursday morning].

    Looking forward to seeing you soon,

    [Your name and signature]

    Using AWeber's Atom app with tags and Campaigns allows you to truly customize your subscribers' experiences and deliver the right message to the right person at the right time.

    Upgrade Atom now, or download now on Android or iOS.

  • Tue, 13 Jun 2017 20:37:07 +0000: 17 WordPress Plugins Email Marketers Should Know About - Email Marketing Tips

    As a busy business owner or blogger, you know it’s important to optimize your time spent.

    One way to to do so? By making the most out of the tools you currently use.

    If WordPress is your Content Management System (CMS), there are a ton of ways you can use the tool to level up your marketing and achieve greater success.

    With WordPress plugins, you can do things like supercharge your list building efforts, make your website more searchable, provide better experiences for your readers and more. And when you do, growing your list and turning passive website visitors into loyal customers will be a lot easier.

    Fortunately, WordPress comes equipped with a myriad of plugins to choose from. Whether you want to optimize for SEO, add a sign up form or secure your site, I’ve put together a list of 17 different Wordpress plugins that provide added functionality to help boost your email marketing efforts.

    Increase traffic: SEO optimization plugins

    Yoast SEO

    You’ve spent the time to create killer content on your website, so how do you make sure that people can see it?

    Search engine optimization.

    A subscriber’s journey starts long before they sign up to your list. With Yoast, you can optimize a number of different aspects of your site such as search engine preview text, meta tags, and hyperlinks:

    You can also ensure that your page is the best it can be in terms of searchability. This isn’t just a way for you to boost the visibility of your awesome contentyou can also use Yoast to get more exposure to your landing pages.

    Google XML Sitemaps

    It's important to focus on the design of your site and the awesome content being created. But that doesn't mean you can skip the nuts and bolts of building a website.

    Using Google XML Sitemaps, you can generate a sitemap for search engines like Google, Bing or Yahoo to find your site. (Think of it as giving these sites a map to help explore your content faster!) Updating the sitemap regularly makes it easier for potentials leads to find you!

    With this plugin, you’ll have better indexing through plugins, which means your site is fully catalogued and easily searchable for any search engine. Oh, and the plugin also helps to notify search engines when new content is posted. We love it!

    Smush Image Compression and Optimization

    Smush optimizes your images for better page load times, which may not seem like a big deal, but site speed is super important for SEO and general usability.

    This plugin is especially important for those of you who have a business that is visual heavy, i.e. photographers or food bloggers.

    You want all of your pictures to load quickly and easily on your website. Not only will that faster load time help with the Google reputation of your site, but your readers will definitely thank you for making browsing easy.

    Grow your list: Sign up form plugins

    Sumo

    Sumo is as close to one-stop shopping as you can get in a Wordpress plugin. With it, you can add a number of different tools to your Wordpress toolkit. Grow your list with Welcome Mats, gather important analytics on your readers and share socially all within Sumo directly.

    The best part? It integrates directly with your AWeber account.

    Welcome mats are just one of Sumo’s powerful lead generation tools.

    While they’re both big and visible, they aren’t too intrusiveso a potential subscriber who wants to get on with reading your site can do so. In the example below, ClickMinded promotes their 2017 SEO checklist clearly without being invasive:

    You can also use the Smart Bar for a sleeker, more minimalist form.

    This form is the first thing that readers see when landing on your site, which is perfect for promoting a piece of lead generation content.

    With Sumo’s many sharing options, you’ll be able to boost traffic to your website and give your readers a way to promote your content.

    HelloBar

    There’s isn’t really a better way to greet your readers than using HelloBar. This awesome horizontal form builder gives your potential subscribers an easy and clean signup experienceand it sticks right at the top of your page. HelloBar scrolls with your readers, or goes away, no questions asked.

    Another plus is that they’re mobile responsive. With a direct integration with AWeber, you’ll have no problem adding subscribers directly to the list of your choice.

    Pro Tip: When you’re building your mailing list, it’s important to vary the kind of forms that you use. One design might work on one page but not another, so test, test, test!

    Contact Form 7

    Contact Form 7 lets you create multiple contact forms on your site. It’s streamlined design and easy-to-integrate functionality makes it one of the most popular contact forms available.

    You’ll be able to create simple and easy to use contact forms to keep in touch with your readers and answer any questions.

    AWeber Webform Widget

    The AWeber Webform Widget helps you quickly add forms to pagesjust place the widget into any available area and your form is populated automatically!

    Whether you’re getting started, or just looking for a quick way to add a form to your site, this plugin is for you. With this plugin, you don’t have to fiddle with any design settings, which makes building your list super easy.

    Deliver great content: Content optimization plugins

    PDF Embedder

    A great way to add an incentive to your sign up forms is to offer a content upgrade or lead magnet. With PDF Embedder, you’ll have no problem hosting that document on your website.

    Rather than adding your lead magnet as a download or attaching it to an email message, you can embed the document directlythat way leads and subscribers will stay on your website and have more of an opportunity to engage with the content.

    Yet Another Related Posts Plugin (YARPP)

    How do you make it easier for people to find exactly what they're looking for?

    By sharing related content! And YARPP helps you define and optimize that content.

    Establishing yourself as a subject matter expert helps to solidify the relation you have with your readerswhen they’re able to come to your site for all their content needs, you can start prompting sign ups to take that relationship to the next level. Cross promotion from within your site also helps increase visibility for all of your content. More eyes on a post leads to higher conversion.

    Pro tip: It’s a good idea to tailor your forms to specific lead magnets.

    Revive Old Post

    Automatically share posts to social media with Revive Old Postit lets you set the interval and number to share based on what is performing the best.

    Used in conjunction with YARPP and AddThis, Revive Old Post can help increase the social reach of your content. Test out the time when your readers are most engaged, and see what kind of content plays the best on each platform.

    Insert Headers and Footers

    Adding code to your site isn’t always the most intuitive process and this plugins gives you a quick and easy way to do it! It's easy to embed a Facebook tracking pixel, Google Analytics script, or custom code that you create.

    As an email marketer you have a staggering amount of assets to maintain. Insert Headers and Footers makes the process as streamlined and easy as possible.

    When you’re able to track the visitors to your site and see how your Facebook Ads convert, it will be easier to retarget with winback content.

    Connect and grow revenue: Social/E-commerce plugins

    WooCommerce

    You have a business to run, we know that. With a plugin like WooCommerce you can process payments directly through your Wordpress site.

    Your readers and subscribers are all potential future buyers. It’s important to give them a simple way to buy your products. You can manage shipping, stock levels and prices in a snap. Here’s an example of the Storefront theme:

    You might be asking yourself, “Well, what should I sell?”

    If you don't have a product, paid content (like ebooks) are a great way to offer up additional content to your customers―and it’s easy with a direct AWeber integration. There’s definitely a reason it’s one of the most popular ecommerce plugins.

    BuddyPress

    Social media is a great tool for building an engaged audience and community that can promote your content. 

    Growing your audience and serving them targeted content helps you to connect more effectively. That’s not only great for testing new content, but it makes your readers more loyal too. By creating a sense of belonging and exclusivity, you’re building a core group of customers as influencers who’ll speak about your brand on your behalf.

    Pro Tip: Try offering up premium content to those individuals who chose to sign up with BuddyPress!

    AddThis

    AddThis is used to generate social sharing buttons in your posts so your readers can easily promote your content to their networks. AddThis inserts their tool next to each blog post, as seen below:

    Incorporating AddThis lets you increase reach and broaden audience engagement on social media. Sharing is caring, so give your readers an easy way to share!

    Leadin (HubSpot Marketing Free)

    Personalization and targeted content are important. With Leadin, you can track your leads and create more content that your audience will be interested in. This plugin allows you to set up analytics that capture information about your audience and what they are doing when they come to your siteyou can track the content they read to find out and what works best.

    We know that segmentation works, so when you can group leads based on their interests, you can easily provide the kind of content that converts. You can tailor your marketing campaigns to the specific needs of your readers and offer the kind of content that they’ll engage with most!

    Protect your visitors: Site security plugins

    Akismet

    This one's another nuts and bolts plugin. Akismet is an open source software that adds a layer of security to your blog to diminish the potential for spam submissions to your landing page and newsletter forms.

  • Thu, 08 Jun 2017 17:37:47 +0000: What Email Marketers Need to Know About LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms - Email Marketing Tips

    Are you looking for high-quality subscribers to join your list?

    (Okay, okay. That’s a silly question. Of course you are!)

    There are hundreds of tactics out there that’ll help you grow your list. These tactics typically promote adding many subscribers, but very few of them focus on how to add the right subscribers. If you want to attract subscribers that will convert to paying customers and raving advocates, you have to be where your target audience is.

    For many, that audience might be on LinkedIn – the world’s largest professional network.

    Learn how you can use LinkedIn’s advertising platform with Zapier and AWeber to grow your list and create a remarkable opt-in experience for new subscribers.

    Easier lead generation for everyone

    Using LinkedIn’s advertising platform, you can dial in the targeting to help your incentive or offer reach the right people at the right time and grow your email list. And with LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms, your prospects’ information is pre-filled using their profile data. This means you’ll get more accurate information and less abandoned forms.

    [caption id="attachment_83728" align="aligncenter" width="350"]LinkedIn Lead Forms Image source: LinkedIn[/caption]

    Using Zapier, you can now automatically send new lead information from LinkedIn Lead Gen Ads to your AWeber account.

    In short, over 500 million registered LinkedIn users can be one click away from joining your AWeber email list!

    To learn more about how to get started with LinkedIn ads, I recommend checking out Zapier’s step-by-step guide.

    Same flow, less friction

    Not sure how this might fit into your current strategy? Here are a few content starter ideas to help you get started. In many cases, you can use LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms similarly to how you currently run LinkedIn ads or ads on other platforms. By pre-filling lead form information, you’ll simply be decreasing the user’s friction to sign up.

    Not sure where to start? Here are four ideas for how you can practically use LinkedIn ads to grow your list:

    1. Invite LinkedIn users to join an educational webinar or demo

    One of the best ways to promote the value of your product or service is to invite users to learn or experience that product or service firsthand.

    A simple ad promoting a webinar or demo at a designated time or place can attract attendees. You may be doing this now by directing ad traffic to a landing page or your webinar signup page.

    With LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms, however, you can collect the registration right in LinkedIn. Using Zapier, you can send that information, along with relevant tags, to AWeber. Using multi-step zaps, you can even send the information to AWeber and a compatible webinar hosting platform as well, like GoTo Webinar.

    2. Offer a guide, checklist or eBook to LinkedIn users

    Creating an attractive incentive or lead magnet (such as a PDF guide or checklist) is a great way to grow your list. Use a LinkedIn ad to offer it to your audience with a one-click path to receive it. Looking for inspiration? Check out this guide on creating the perfect incentive.

    Using Zapier, you can send your new leads to AWeber with a corresponding tag. Use this tag to trigger an automated email campaign from AWeber that delivers the incentive. Add an additional autoresponder email to nurture the relationship with your new subscriber, provide additional value and offer additional products and services.

    3. Create and deliver an automated email course

    At AWeber, we’ve found great success educating prospects with email courses. We use a sequence of automated emails configured to be sent over a set period of time to deliver course content.

    You can create a simple email course with AWeber in minutes using Campaigns, and market the course on LinkedIn using LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms. When a prospect opts-in to your course, you can automatically send their information to AWeber using Zapier and immediately deliver the first email lesson.

    4. Encourage LinkedIn users to set up a consultation

    Are you a coach or consultant? Invite a prospective customer to sign up for a free consultation.

    You can do this by implementing a simple LinkedIn Lead Gen Form ad inviting users to book some time. When a subscriber is added to your list via Zapier, include a link to schedule the actual 10 to 15-minute call with a free tool called Calendly.

    Using Calendly, you can automate your scheduling, minimize the time spent emailing back and forth with prospects and ensure that your consultation is limited to a short amount of time.

    Get started today

    When using automation and advanced advertising tools like LinkedIn’s platform, there’s a ton of room for creativity and innovation.

    To learn more about connecting AWeber to Zapier, check out this Knowledge Base article.

    Although AWeber’s Zapier integration can be used with a free Zapier account plan, LinkedIn Lead Gen Forms is a Premium zap (which requires a paid subscription to Zapier). You can check out their 14-day trial to see if it’s right for you!

    Please also note that by default, confirmed opt-in is turned on for all AWeber integrations. This can be changed to single opt-in. Contact our customer solutions team to discuss single opt-in options when using Zapier or other trusted integrations.

    I can’t wait to see how you use these exciting new features! If you’re using ads and automation to grow your business, share your success in the comments below.

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.
