Social Media Marketing Tip #16-Trick Out Your Aweber Opt In Form

by golda on October 7, 2010

I Heart

One thing I love about my children’s school is that they wear uniforms. Everyone looks the same for the most part and it’s easy on my budget. That uniformity isn’t always what’s needed, especially when we talk about branding ourselves. We do some many things so that we stand apart from others. We color our hair, get funky tattoos, drive fancy cars, you get the point. Sometimes it’s hard to blend in and why should you. Well today, I’m going to show you how to take your Aweber form from drab to fab. Nothing complicated, just takes a few clicks of the mouse. How do I do this? Well you have to watch the video to find out.


Now that you know how to add your own special touch to your Aweber opt in form, spread the word with some comment love. Have a phenomenal day and I’ll see you on the next post 🙂

That’s a pretty nifty trick right there! I just recently signed up for an Aweber account but sadly I haven’t yet taken the time to get it all figured it. My trial ran out the other day so I’m paying for it now, which means I really need to get in there and start making it work for me. Would love to pick your brain sometime and learn how you use it for your business.

Mandee, those trial periods are great…when we max out our opportunity. Aweber has some great training videos. I use the opt in forms mostly on my blog as well as on facebook. I hope that answers your question but if not, feel free to ask me again. Until next time…

Hi Golda,

That’s a great tutorial. Very clear and easy to follow. The end result was very nice, too. It’s always good to make something your own by design! And the more you can make your opt in noticeable the better. Colors, backgrounds, title fonts, images… eye candy… all helps draw attention and usually helps greatly with conversion.

A lot of people are afraid to mess around with forms of any kind, including an opt in form. I hope your video shows them how easy Aweber makes it. I don’t use Aweber, but some of my clients do. People could save money by learning these things for themselves.
