For all EMAIL Marketers using Aweber

12 replies
Hi Guys..
I had signed up for aweber..
I wanted to ask a quick question..

I have a few successful info products for sale and I want my customers to automatically get into my list after they purchase my product.

Cmon - It is perfectly acceptable as FTC allows you to mail your customers things like special deals offered by you etc. for a period of 3 years...

So..The question is - How do I automatically get my customers into my aweber opt in list without asking their information?

Many successful Imers do this..so was wondering how to do it

Thanks

    I don't think you can do this with Aweber. I know 1shoppingcart and other merchants can automatically put buyers on lists but you're restricted to all their stuff.

    The best way I know how is just to ask new customers to register to download their product, then deliver it through aweber.

  • Aweber doesn't allow you to do this. They are pretty restrictive in how you add new subscribers, plus are quite limited in terms of what you can do with their 'new' API.

    Your best bet is to put up an optin form to grab addresses after they purchase.

    Saying something like, "To confirm the product download link is being sent to the correct email address, please confirm by putting your name and email address below"

    It is against paypal t+c's, but i have had no problems doing this.

      If that's your best bet, I'd hate to see the other bets. :p

      Indeed. It surely is. One of my clients lost his PayPal account over this, the first time someone complained about it. Understandably, really. It's varying the terms of the contract of sale after payment.

      You may have had no problems so far, but it takes only one person disliking it enough to comment to PayPal and you're out of business there. Is that a good plan?

      "Here's my product, it costs $x"
      "Ok, here's the $x - paid. Where's the product?"
      "Er ... no ... sorry ... now you have to opt in as well as paying that money, before I deliver the product" :rolleyes:

      And that's your best bet?!

    One thing I find works well is to require customers to register for updates and future bonuses. Make sure to explain that there will be updates, and you may even need to deliver on this at some point .

    You can add them easily - but they must confirm to be on your actual list.

      Yea exactly, not sure what most of these people are talking about.

      You have to opt in using aweber regardless. So, aweber does let you automatically add them to your list, they just have to click the confirmation email, which is standard anyway.... You wouldn't LITERALLY want to force someone on your list who dosen't want to be on their anyway right? Because they could easily unsubscribe anyway

        People do not have to confirm to be on your list with Aweber if you don't want them to. You can create a single optin list which means people are put straight on to your list without having to confirm. I run several single optin lists.

    Yes you can add email from purchasers to your aweber account. Go into your aweber account and under the My List tab click on email parsers, there you will see a list of payment processors that they except for adding email addresses to your account as people purchase.

    Below is straight from awebers data base;

    What Are Email Parsers For?


    An email parser is a technology that allows you to integrate your campaign with these and other services so that when a transaction is made with that service, a subscriber can be added to your campaign.

    For instance, you might use PayPal as a shopping cart for your products. You can use an email parser on this page to automatically subscribe customers when they purchase from you.


    We use email parsers in situations where you want subscribers to add to your list via an email from a third party, typically a payment processor such as PayPal, rather than the subscriber sending an email directly from their email program.

    The parser is a set of rules that "reads" incoming email messages to your autoresponder and extracts subscribers' information from them.

    We have email parsers set up for several payment processors, including:

    · PayPal
    · Authorize.net
    · PayDotCom
    · Clickbank
    · 1ShoppingCart.com
    · StormPay
    · Regsoft.com
    as well as other online applications.

    If you are using a service that we don't already have an email parser for, and you think you need an email parser to use that service with AWeber, please contact our Support Team and we'll be happy to help you determine the best way to go forward.

    If it turns out you need a custom email parser, you can have your web designer set that up in your account, or we can create one for $149.

    I hope this helps?

    As suggested, create a custom parser.. it takes about 30 seconds.

    They will still have to double opt-in - which is actually a good thing for both you and them.
