We have covered couple of posts in the past about Aweber. I have started using Aweber for ShoutMeLoud newsletter recently and I will come with my review of Aweber soon. Initially thinking of moving from feedburner to Aweber is scary but thinking of advantages of Email list, I can’t ignore this opportunity. Before we move ahead with another tutorial you should refer to:
Aweber is technically used for sending Email newsletter but some time back Aweber also added the feature to send Blog RSS update as Email newsletter. This will make sure, that your subscriber will keep receiving Email updates.
Add Blog Broadcast by adding Feed
To get started with you need to create a list and once you have created a list, click on “Messages>Blog Broadcast”.
Click on + sign and add your Blog RSS feeds and customize your Template titles by clicking on personalize:
You can pick from any pre saved template and add it in your newsletter. I would suggest if you know designing, create a HTML template matching with your blog design and brand, else create a blank template.
Set time for Sending:
This is one of the most important features which will let you control when your blog broadcast will be sent to your users. Depending upon your blog update frequency set this. I have set it to 4. Also sending time is very important, depending on your time-zone you should consider finding the best time to send Newsletter.
Once done, click on “Save Blog Broadcast” and now your new posts will be automatically sent via Email Newsletter.
I already started using Aweber for ShoutMeLoud newsletter and will be sharing my experience and things which I learned after using Aweber. For now I would suggest you should not miss the chance to create an Email list for your blog using Aweber and sign up for Aweber.
Do let us know what do you use for your blog? Feed Burner or Aweber? Do you have any plans for Aweber Email marketing in future?
