How do I create a landing page?

This article will explain how you can build AWesome landing pages using our powerfully-simple landing page builder. 

With a landing page, you don't need to create dedicated pages on your website to collect subscribers. Instead, you can create landing pages directly with AWeber to start building your list.

Step By Step Instructions

  1. Click "Pages & Forms" then the "Landing Pages" tab within your AWeber account, then click the "Create a Landing Page" button.

  5. To drag and drop a block, all you need to do is click and hold your mouse button on the block that you want to place in your landing page. In this example, we will insert an image block.

    Continue to hold down your mouse button and drag the block over into your landing page. If you are adding an element block into a vacant row, the row will highlight blue. Release your mouse when the Element Icon is over the space you wish to place the element. 

    Click and drag the icon to where you would like to place the element indicated by the bold blue line

    If you are adding a block in between other elements, a bold, blue line will populate which indicates where the block will be dropped.

  6. You can move the position of a block in your landing page by clicking and holding down the "Move" tab to the right of the element. When you start to move the block, the new position will be indicated with a blue line.
