Can I merge/combine my lists?

AWeber provides the option to export subscribers from a list and import them into another list without the need for the subscribers to confirm again. Additionally, there is also the option to include or exclude lists when sending a broadcast as well as sharing a follow up messages to other lists.

If your account was created after 02/03/2020, the Follow Up Series feature will not be present within your account as this feature has been deprecated. Creating an automated series of messages can be done with Campaigns.

Exporting subscribers / Importing subscribers

If you wanted to move subscribers from one list to another, you can accomplish this by using AWeber's export function listed under on Subscribers management page. Be sure to first select your Currently Subscribed segment from the left-hand Filters options. Once the filter is applied, at the end of your subscribers table, you will use the "Export CSV" button to export your subscribers.

Once you export the subscribers to a .csv file, simply import the subscribers into your desired list.

Including lists when sending a Broadcast

When composing a message from one list, you have the option to include additional lists in the scheduling. When including other lists, if a subscriber is subscribed to more than one of the included lists they will only receive one copy of the Broadcast.

To include other lists when you schedule your Broadcast, update the "Who should receive this message?" section from within you "Broadcast Settings". From here, check the "Include" box next to the list(s) you'd like to include. To include all lists, check the top "Include" box. Once complete, click the "Apply" button.

Sharing messages between lists

You can easily move your campaign from one list to another by going to the "Campaigns" page and clicking "Copy to List" underneath the campaign name. Please note: when you copy the campaign, it will be in the draft state in the new list. You will have to activate it before subscribers on that list receive it.

If you're using a follow up series, you can move the series to a new list using the follow up sharing code. When you paste in a "Follow Up Series Sharing" code, any custom or global fields you had previously created will be overwritten. If you copy follow ups, any of those that you previously had in the list will be overwritten along with their related stats.

Sharing Landing Pages Between Lists

You can also move your landing pages. In order to do this, go to the "Landing Pages" tab and click "Copy to List," underneath the name of the landing page. Please note: when you copy the landing page, it will be unpublished in the new list. You will have to publish it in order for it to be active. When you publish the page, it will have a different URL associated with it in the new list.
