can I find out which one of my aweber members keeps complaining (but is NOT unsubscribing!)

by 9 comments

Can I discover which member of my list is registering a complaint?

Every broadcast message I get one compliant - every time - and I have a feeling (although can't prove it yet) I know who it is - someone who has signed up just with the intention to complain and cause me problems with aweber.

Admittedly it is only one complaint - but does my aweber cpanel allow me to see which actual member registers the complaint?

Thank you,

    I'm pretty sure that if you get a complaint then aweber unsubscribes that person from your list.

    It's probably someone different each time.

    Yes, if you mean spam complaint, aweber removes them. Unfortunately, they no longer tell you who it was, so you could remove them from any other lists or databases you might have (other than at aweber).

    Jenny, I know how you feel... it's incredibly annoying. I get just one spam complaint every other time I send a broadcast containing EXACTLY what they signed up for! And I post their sign-up details at the very top of the email so they know they signed up. I gave up worrying about it... I think this is the path of least resistance for most people. They just click the little "spam" button on their email client instead of unsubscribing.

    Guys - thank you! And thank you Gene for your words as well.

    Chris - I did mean a Spam Complaint yes - apologies that I didn't make that clear in my post.

    I didn't realize that after a spam complaint that member is removed though - is that 100% certain?

    Thank you!

      Yes anyone who makes a complaint is automatically unsubscribed.

      That is 100% certain.

      It is possible the person could be subscribing again intentionally under a different email address but highly unlikely.

      Most likely you're getting a complaint from a different person each time.

      Keep in mind that to make a "complaint" can be as simple as someone marking your email as spam (even if they do it accidentally).

      Kindest regards,

      Am I just dumb, or what? How can you get spammed from a double oped in system? Sending out a lot of messages may be inappropriate, but is it spam or just bad manors? As far as I know you can't add folks to your Aweber account without them agreeing, so how can you spam them?

    Also people are so many lists they may not even remember signing up.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
