There's no better time than now to get started on your email campaign. Fortunately, it's easy and you don't have to go at it alone. Take advantage of our resources as we cover the different sections of navigating your AWeber list.
Setting up your first list will be a bit different than the steps covered here. For more information on setting up your first list, click here. Read through the article for details on how you can navigate your list once created.
Hover over the "List Options" tab and choose List Settings from the drop down menu.
Under the "Basic Settings" section, type in a list name and list description.
Continue to enter the "From" name and email address that you would like subscribers to see when they receive emails from you.
Click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom.
Personalize Your List
Move to the "Personalize Your List" section of the "List Settings" by clicking on the "Personalize Your List" icon from the left hand side of the page. While competing this section is not required, we definitely recommend filling out as much as you can.
Under the "Company Branding" section enter the name of the company or program that the campaign will be associated with and enter your website URL that you would like associated with this campaign.
Next, enter the signature that you would like to use for your messages that you send out.
If you have a company logo that you would like associated with your campaign, you would upload it here as well.
Note: The company logo will keep it's size when you upload it. So if your logo is too large, you may want to resize it before uploading it. We recommend using a logo width of 600px.
In the next section for "Social Media / Sharing" you can connect any Twitter or Facebook accounts you might want to integrate with at a later point.
Click the "Save Settings" button again.
Move to the "Confirmed Opt In" section of the "List Settings" by clicking on the "Confirmed Opt-In" icon at left hand side of the page.
Here you will want to edit the confirmation message that your subscribers are sent after they sign up to your mailing list. You will be able to edit the subject line, introduction, and closing of the confirmation message.
Once you are done editing your confirmation click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom of the page.

Follow Up Messages
Next, you will want to create your welcome message (the first follow up message). Hover over the "Messages" tab, and click "Follow Up Series" from the drop down options.
On this page, click the button to create your first follow up message using the message editor of your choice. The most popular choice would be the Drag & Drop Email Builder.
You will then be taken to our drag & drop email builder to create your first follow up message.

Sign Up Forms
Create your sign up form to collect subscribers from your website. Click on the Sign Up Forms tab in your account. On this page, click the green "Create A Sign Up Form" button.
This will then take you to the Sign Up Form Generator where you will be able to design your form to appear how you desire.
After you publish the sign up form to your website, sign yourself up to your list, just as your subscribers will, and test the entire process. If necessary, make any changes to your sign up form in the sign up form generator.
