How do I add or remove tags in bulk?

AWeber's Campaigns is a great way to send targeted messages to your subscribers. Using tags, you can decide which subscribers you would like to receive your Campaigns. You can also send a Broadcast directly to subscribers based on tags they do, or do not have. In this article, we'll walk through how to add and remove tags in bulk.




Step By Step Instructions

  1. Click the "Subscribers" tab and choose "Subscribers."

  2. Then, either check the box next to the subscriber's name for anyone you would like to tag. Or you can check the box next to the word 'Name' to select all of your subscribers at once.

    Click the name checkbox

    A yellow bar will appear above the subscribers explaining how many subscribers have been selected.

  3. You can bulk tag subscribers in groups of 20, 50, or 100. You can also choose to bulk tag your entire subscriber list or a targeted segment of your list. For this example, we will bulk tag the entire list of 534 subscribers by clicking on the 'Select all subscribers' option.
