Aweber OPT-INS down --- AGAIN!

by 2 comments
From support just now, after 2 hrs thinking we had our form code wrong.

Andy Kostrzewski: We are currently experiencing a delay in adding subscribers to your list, and receiving the first message from that list. I can assure you that your leads are indeed being captured,
and will be sent that message, as soon as the lead is visible within your account.
We do apologize for this, and appreciate your patience while our entire
development team works to fully resolve this. Thank you.

If you've got any pages our there that tell the visitor (Go check your email inbox now to confirm), people either think you lied to them, or their waiting for 8 hours now for that message to show up.

    Aweber down...again.

    I talked to some guy named Andy who was a rude little prick, and he couldn't tell me:
    A. WHEN the service would be back up
    B. If there was any kind of compensation for this kind of bad service.

    The worst part is when I asked him to notify me when they would know he said "too bad".

    I blew $80 in PPC traffic today and aweber didn't even so much as apologize.

    I am seriously considering switching companies or finding a solution like send studio I can use on my own server.

    Honestly its an AUTORESPONDER services...HOW can it be down??!!

      Can I ask if you guys are still with Aweber's older service? i.e. the lesser price with less analytics/features?

      I had optin delays by 5 days lol. A friend told me he had opted in and I didn't receive notification for yeah 5 days...

      Is this there way of trying to get us to move across to there new service?

      Ultimately I have had NO problems what-so-ever up until the last month or so...

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Haven't Posted in a long while, been off of the scene on IM even longer. Can anyone offer some advice as to where to get restarted? I've made some income from Fiverr in the past by writing review articles, not sure if Fiverr is still a good platform though. Any help would be greatly appreciate also more than willing to become an apprentice and work for the knowledge, not the money.

    After five years and almost one thousand projects, give it or take, I believe I have come up with a handful of more or less reliable signs that you're dealing with a bad client. I haven't reinvented the wheel, that's for sure. It's just like in that saying. Maybe I don't know what I want, but I certainly know what I don't want. The same goes here. Maybe I don't know how to find a good client, but I certainly know how to avoid a bad one. Also, I'm far from an ideal list. Sharing experiences regarding bad clients can help a lot. After all, we play in the same team. In addition, I strongly believe in Good Karma principle. Meaning, there's plenty of room and clients for everybody. Deal with real people not with avatars

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    The only way to handle having many massive daily goals is by doing them one moment at a time. Don't listen to the narrow-minded people who say that you have to focus on 1 thing and do it will at the expense of everything else. If you want everything, if you want to be financially successful, and healthy, and have great relationships, and be happy, and learn every day, and have family time and more, you're in luck, because you can have it all!
