In today’s post we delve in deep to the Aweber WordPress Plugin. This post will be chocked full of action, animation, aweber, and, of course the Aweber WordPress plugin! Yeah Baby! I know I discussed the power of Aweber in Setting Up A Blog, but I really want to delve in the topic more.
OK! So here is the deal! I have been using Aweber for about a year and a half, and in the past 6 months the company has really made some nice strides to incorporate their Aweber WordPress plugin, so they can give people a more well-rounded experience. That coupled with the fact that email marketing is merging so much with my social networking that I decided that we will be spending the entire week discussing email marketing.
Yes, you get to hear me drone on and on about email marketing. It shall be an exciting week indeed! So, without further ado, let’s get started with the Aweber WordPress plugin with a short video describing how to set up an Aweber account and integrate it with WordPress.

Get Started With An Aweber WordPress Plugin
You have to get started somewhere with Aweber, so the first and easiest step as I stated in the video is to sign up for a free account. Below is a test drive account to learn more about how Aweber works.
Can You Have More Sales, Too?
Helping over 102,000+ businesses like yours raise profits and build customer relationships using AWeber’s opt-in email marketing software for over 10 years.
Now, Let’s Get That Aweber WordPress Plugin Set Up
Once you have signed up for a free test drive with Aweber, then you just need to follow the instructions in the video for setting up a list and installing your Aweber WordPress Plugin.
Andy, Nice to be here again. We have not talked lately. I had a house that flooded and had to take care of it for the last couple of weeks. Looks like you have redisigned your Blog. In any case it looks great and I did enjoy your video on the Aweber wordpress plugin. Make it a great day.
No problem! I hope your home is ok now! I was wondering what happened, since I have not heard anything from you in a few weeks. Glad to see that you are getting back into the swing of things. Also, thanks for your comments on my new blog design and post. The blog is going to change even more in the next few months. Building it out slowly.
I just posted the following message at aweber:
Dear aweber, Would you please write a description of what this API does and does not do.
You don’t need this plugin to add a subscription slot to wordpress.
What would help most people would be to integrate aweber with this list of people who subscribe as wordpess posters.
This API does not appear to do that. Is that correct? Someone has created an wordpress plugin that does do that…. but that plugin is no longer supported.
Aweber…. why do you not go to the author of that plugin and take over support of it?
I agree with you that the Aweber plugin needs to start allowing commenters who sign up the chance to become part of your list. I have been looking at how to do that for the past few months and have not found something satisfactory at the present moment. One thing that I would say is that Aweber has email parsers for various items. I called to ask them about adding one for eventbrite. Their response to me was that they either need a large outpouring of people asking about a specific email parser or they will charge you $150 to add different parsers.
One thing that would be great is if we could get enough people asking about adding a wordpress email parser then we could possibly have it added, so there would be a direct connection between aweber and wordpress.
In regards to the rest of your comment. Please remember that this plugin is simply making it easier for you to include your web form into the sidebar of your wordpress blog. It is definitely not a bulletproof solution to everything for wordpress. Does that make sense?
Very slick Andy,
What great info on Aweber. I have been uding it for my acupuncture practice and had a hard time putting it on my site. I had to hire someone to do it. This is really simple to do on WordPress! I really love the ability to make a list so I can track things.
Aweber is such an amazing tool to use. Glad that you are able to easily incorporate it into your wordpress blog.
Hi Andy, like you, I love Aweber, they make it so easy to run an email campaign and to get people’s details so you can follow up with them. Great video on how to set up an opt-in form for a blog.
Regards from Julieanne
Glad you enjoyed the video! It is really is very simple to figure out.
Hi Andy, This looks like potentially a really useful tool. Unfortunately, I do not use Aweber, I use iContact and I haven’t heard of them doing anything similar… I will have to go off and check them out.
I love how everyday online you bump into people & you always learn another great piece of info or advice.
Thanks for giving me something new to learn about today 🙂
I used to use iContact, but just prefer Aweber more. it is cool how their are so many different great tools for people to use to build their email lists.
Well done Andy – I’ve been using Aweber since day one with my blog, and I’m (also) a big fan. It’s so easy to use, and there are so many things you can do with the system! I especially enjoy the forms – they make it really easy to set up opt ins, but also provide attractive templates you can customize for email blasts to your list. Thanks for this helpful information!
Aweber is such a cool tool to use. Glad you enjoyed the post!
I definitely like your blog because I personally does not know this information until I came across. Thanks for sharing and keep going! 🙂
Hey Andy, great post on Aweber. Did you know Aweber also just launched an app for facebook pages? You can now setup a tab on your facebook fanpage and customize or change it via the aweber back office as you would any lead capture form you create, allowing anyone using this app on their facebook fanpage to capture leads straight into their aweber lists.
Yeah! I had heard about Aweber having an app for Facebook, but I use Lujure for my fan pages, because it is more robust.
