How do I navigate and modify my list?

After creating a list in AWeber, take some time to optimize your list. Take advantage of our resources as we cover navigating and modifying different areas within your AWeber list.

Setting up your first list will be a bit different than the steps covered this article, but if needed, we have information about setting up your first list that can get you started.

Basic Settings

Locate List Options from the navigation bar and choose List Settings from the submenu. Under the Basic Settings section, enter a list name and list description. 

Click Basic Settings

Continue to enter the "From" name and email address that you would like subscribers to see when they receive emails from you.

From address

Click the "Save All 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.

Click Personalize Your List

Under the Company Details 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.

Type in your Company Name and website URL

Next, enter the signature that you would like to use for your messages that you send out.

Type your signature

If you have a company logo that you would like associated with your content, upload it here to assist in establishing your brand! Don't have a logo? Design one on Canva for free!

Upload your logo or design one with Canva

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 Social Media Sharing section, you can connect any Twitter or Facebook accounts you might want to integrate with at a later point.

Next, you will want to create your welcome message and autoresponder. To get started, locate the Messages tab and click Drafts from the menu options.

Click Drafts from the Messages dropdown

Click "Create a Message" to start using the Drag & Drop Email Builder and customizing your welcome message.

Click Create a Message

After you create a message, it will be stored in your draft folder. You can add it to a Campaign. Campaigns are AWeber's autoresponder feature. Campaign messages will send out automatically at the intervals that you set up. You set a campaign to trigger automatically for all subscribers when they are subscribed or when a certain tag is applied. To create a campaign, find Campaigns under the the Automations tab in the navigation bar. 

Click Campaigns under Automation

Then, click "Create Campaign."
