Your AWeber experience just received five serious upgrades.

Your confirmation emails have a new design

We recently rolled out a modern, super-clean HTML design for your confirmation email a.k.a. the first email your new subscribers will see when they join your list.

Here's an image of the old and new templates, swapping.

What you need to know:

  • Your message will look great on desktops and mobile devices since it’s an HTML design.  📱
  • We replaced that long opt-in link with a simple blue button that says “Confirm my subscription.” 👈
  • We tested this new design and have seen opt-in rates — the number of subscribers saying “YES! I want to join your list!” — jump up significantly. 🚀

How to take advantage of this feature:

  • You don’t have to do anything! All confirmation emails sent from AWeber now use this new design.
  • If you have any visual references to the old design, such as on your thank you pages, or within any videos, we recommend that you update to display the new email. Contact us by phone, chat, or email if you have any questions.

AWeber customers are already sharing their excitement about the new design!

The drag-and-drop editor is better than ever

Creating a beautiful and engaging email should be simple and enjoyable. After all, your crafting a message that hundreds or thousands of people might read.

We listened closely to customer feedback about our drag-and-drop message editor and made some tweaks to significantly improve your creation process.

What you need to know:

  • We improved one of the key features of any drag-and-drop editor . . . the dragging and dropping! Look for a new indicator to show you exactly where the selected element will drop as you move its location. Indicator code name: the dog bone! 🍖
  • When moving elements around, your entire layout used to shift immediately, which was jarring. In fact, it was easy to forget where your element started before you moved it! We fixed this by maintaining your email’s layout until you actually drop the element where you want it.
  • There’s also a faded placeholder where the element began. That way, if you change your mind and decide to put it back, you’ll know right where to drop it. Code name: ghosting. 👻

Dragging and dropping elements is now easier!

How to take advantage of this feature:

  • Drop into the drag-and-drop editor today, select one our new templates or one of your own, and have some fun crafting a new message.

It’s now easier to personalize your email content

Using personalized contextual content in your emails is key to sending engaging campaigns. You can insert your subscribers’ first names, or the URL where they signed up. You can also insert things like the current date, your signature, or an unsubscribe URL. There’s plenty to explore. So we completely revamped the dropdown menu.

What you need to know:

  • Easily select variables based on their category using this menu. You can also create your own custom snippets in list settings, which will appear in this menu.
