How Do I Create A New List?
Step 01. First, click the “Create and Manage Lists” link in the upper left of your AWeber control panel.
Step 02. On this page, click the “Create A List” button to the right.
Step 03. You will be taken to the “Tell Us About Yourself” page. First, enter the name of your company or program that you are marketing. Then enter the website URL for the website that is associated with your company or program.
Step 04. After you have entered your company details you will then need to enter your “Contact Address.” Enter a postal address that you can be reached at by subscribers if needed. This address will automatically appear at the bottom of any messages that you send out.
Step 05. When you are done entering your “Contact Address,” enter your “Sender Name” and “Sender Email” address for your list. This is the name and email address that your messages will appear to come from when subscribers receive your messages. Once you are done filling that out, click the “Next Step” button.
Step 06. Next, you will be taken to the “Let’s Create Your List” page. On this page enter your “List Name.” Your “List Name” can be up to 32 characters in length and it is not something that subscribers will see. The “List Name” is mainly for your benefit so you can identify which list you are working on from within in your account.
Step 07. After you have entered your “List Name” you will see the area to enter your “List Description.” Here you will want to describe what your mailing list is for. There is a 400 character limit for the “List Description.” Subscribers will see your “List Description” on the unsubscribe page if they ever go to unsubscribe from your list. Once you are done entering your “List Description” click the “Next Step” button.
Step 08. On the last page there will be the confirmation message that is sent to subscribers when they are added to your mailing list. This email is sent to subscribers in order to gain their permission and to show that they want to receive information from you. Even if you do not plan on using a confirmation message, you will still need to set it up.
The first thing you will need to do is setup the subject line for the confirmation message. If you choose to use one of our pre-approved subject lines you will be given a drop down menu with those pre-approved options.
Step 09. If you do not wish to use one of our pre-approved subject lines you can always type in your own subject line. Just click on the “or, Request Approval for a Custom Subject Line” link.
Step 10. If you choose to type in your own subject line, please allow up to 1 business day for that subject line to be approved. In general, a custom subject line must tell subscribers who you are, explain why they are receiving the confirmation message, and explain what they need to do with the message.
Step 11. You can also choose to personalize the subject line with information captured from the subscriber by using the “Insert Personalization” drop down menu. So for example we have chosen to personalize our subject line with the subscriber’s first name.
Step 12. After you have selected your confirmation message subject line you can edit the confirmation message itself. Just click on the “edit” button to edit the introduction or the signature of the confirmation message.
Step 13. Once you are done editing your confirmation message content just click the “Approve Message & Create List” button at the bottom of the page.
This video covers setting up your list in AWeber, plus getting a form on your site so you can start turning visitors into subscribers.
