Training within AWeber

There is an extensive amount of training available with AWeber, in the form of videos, blogs and free live webinars. The challenge I personally have with this is, I am a prolific learner and simply do not have as much time to study as I would like. Nevertheless, whatever challenge you face with AWeber, there is training available to guide you through. Not only the training, remember, also the award-winning customer service and experts available to assist you when you need – 24/7!

My Final Opinion of AWeber

Based on research, AWeber has held its ground as a worthy competitor to the likes of iContact, MailChimp, Getresponse, and Mad Mimi. To be fair, I shall be writing reviews on the competitors too.

Back to the company in question, AWeber, they offer a superb service in that their entire product is available to clients, regardless of how small your subscriber list is (let’s face it, we all must start somewhere). This is unlike some of their competitors who restrict the number of e-newsletters you can send for example. What does change is the pricing, the bigger your subscriber list, the higher your rate.  Makes perfect sense to me. What are your thoughts on this?

Their training and customer service is exceptional, the fact that they have won customer service awards is evidence of just how good their service is. I don’t usually do this in reviews but I would like to bring your attention to their awards, they have consistently won awards since 2015, in each year up to and including 2018. That is certainly worthy of acknowledgment:

I also particularly like the culture of the company, it makes me think of how Microsoft has been portrayed over the years. This appeals to the free spirit in me:

I think it is pretty clear to see why they win awards so consistently. The team onboard can only deliver that way if they are engaged, happy, well rewarded and acknowledged … you know, the usual drill that makes an employer a choice employer. Speaking of which, AWeber is that too. Let me not digress, we are here to evaluate the product and service they offer.

Based on my own experience, research among colleagues in the Affiliate Marketing and in the Online Business world. AWeber gets a very big thumbs up from me!

If you are keen to take the FREE 30-Day Trial with AWeber, click on this link to take you straight to their site. It doesn’t make sense to join as a paying member right off the bat, especially not when they are offering you a FREE Trial. Go for it and let me know what your experience is.  Looking forward to hearing from you!

Before I go, you know of course that I am an Affiliate Marketer, so my disclosure here is that I am an Affiliate for AWeber.  When you click on the link that I provide and sign up as a paying customer, I benefit with a commission from AWeber. Please be assured, this makes no difference to the price you pay.  AWeber’s pricing as I have detailed in this Review is their standard pricing model.

Not only am I an Affiliate for AWeber, I am also a client – you can rest assured that I am recommending their products and services based on my experience as their client.

One Last Thing …

One last thing before I love and leave you – it would be remiss of me to not share more about what how I am building a business online and creating the life of my dreams – one of geographic and financial freedom, plus I can make a difference in the lives of others.  You can read about that right this exciting business opportunity in my Wealthy Affiliate Review.

When it comes to building an online business, not only Affiliate Marketing but Online Stores, Blogs, you name it, this is my:

*** Number One Recommendation ***

If you are looking to create a life of freedom – to be able to afford to choose where you live AND be free of debt have a look at this:

** Disclaimer – this is not a get rich quick scheme, it requires a lot of hard work, determinations, and persistence!   But it does afford you the opportunity to build your own online business!

Only do this is if you are serious:

  • serious about no longer being a slave to time in the office,
  • serious about no longer commuting for far too long every day of your life,
  • serious about no longer reporting into a boss (who may or may not be a great person)
  • serious about creating a life of FREEDOM

I have written an indepth article if you need more information about this incredible Online Business Opportunity.

Look forward to seeing YOU on the inside!

Blessings!

  1. Hi Louise

    Enjoyed reading this review of Aweber, funnily enough, I recently signed up for their service and do concur everything you have stated in this review. Aweber is very easy to use and I like their guides and free resources.
    The only downside is that it is pretty pricey when compared to a service like MailChimp (which free if your subscriber list is under 2000).
    However, I decided to go with Aweber because you can create multiple email lists in different niches which you cannot do with MailChimp.

    • Hi Minhaj
      Thank you for popping over and sharing your insight into AWeber. Glad to hear you are as happy with them as I am. I also use MailChimp for an NPO I do volunteer work for, makes sense to use MailChimp for them and it also works well. I agree with you though that AWeber offers the flexibility of the multiple email lists which is a big plus.
      Blessings

  2. Hi Louise,
    This is a timely review… I’m currently deciding which autoresponder to go with! I really like the sound of Aweber and of course, they have a great reputation in the market as far as I can tell. I’m interested in seeing your coming reviews on MailChimp and GetResponse. I’ve not had experience with either of these companies either but would love to see how they stack up to Aweber. Thanks again for a great review!

    • That is great to hear Nigel – thank you for taking the time to stop and read here. I am very happy to hear that you found value in this review. I shall get onto MailChimp and GetResponse reviews soonest. Keep a lookout for them.
      Blessings
      Louise
