What kind of work can you do with Aweber?
Wherever step you are at, there is a step by step guide to help you get settled in. There are text and video instructions that are easy to follow.
1.You will go to “Menu” on the upper right of your screen.
2.Then, you will look for “Support” and under that you will click on “Contact us.”
3.Once you clicked on “Contact Us,” you will see a screen with FAQ, Free Live Webinars and Video tutorials.
When I contacted them by email and they responded to my question within a few hours. There is also a phone number and a place to click to text chat under “Contact Live Support.” While I was writing this page, I decided to use the “Text Chat” feature and I got an answer in ONE minute! That is truly the fastest question I ever got answered online.
Before I tried Aweber, I tried a free autoresponder from Listwire. They were not helpful and I had to do my own research in order to learn how to do things. They did not have any video tutorials available and their website was not organized well. I did not like that program, so I considered Aweber, because I heard good things through many people.
I thought about going with MailChimp, but I had tried that before and I didn’t find the support I needed and it was confusing to me to get things set up. When I look for products, my main criteria is how well is the support. I read that MailChimp is free for up to 2000 subscribers, but when something is free, there is something lacking.
I didn’t want to waste my time again on something free that would give me a headache later on. So, I made my decision based on how well customer support was. Aweber has been voted best in customer service, so I can be confident I chose the best product. I agree based on my personal experience that they have the best customer service.
Personally, I try to give my patient’s in real life the best customer service I can possibly give them. So, normally I would want that for myself as well. That is why I chose this product as another tool for my online business. I have been contemplating a while of which email marketing provider I wanted to choose and this is the one I chose to use. I think I made a pretty good decision.
Are you ready to start building your email list? Did you know when you have repeat visitors to your website, it can increase your google ranking? Increase google ranking means more audience will see your page. More page visits can equal more sales for you!
Do you have a website? If you don’t, you can build one for free in under 30 seconds. Don’t know anything about building websites? That is okay. When you build your free website, you can sign up as a starter member for FREE at Wealthy Affiliate and they will guide you on how to set up your website and how to place content in your website for FREE. I am not kidding. I did it myself.
Although I only used Aweber for a short time, I don’t feel overwhelmed using this product. This product is worth the price, but it would be better if it was FREE. We can’t always get what we want, but I have learned you get what you pay for. If you want something great, then you will have to pay something. If you don’t want to pay for anything, then you will have to deal with the many glitches that come with not paying for something. I don’t have time for the glitches and headaches, so I will just pay it to avoid those problems.
