for Your Website
Using AWeber the Autoresponder
By TaSha Franklin
need an Autoresponder in order to include an Opt-In form
on your webpage. If you haven't already signed up with AWeber,
you must do that
now before continuing with these directions. For those of you who are
familiar with Autoresponders yet, please see my related article
Exactly is an Autoresponder? And How Will it Help You Optimize Your
Create an Opt-In Form
Once logged in to AWeber, click the
tab "Web Forms". Next,
click the big green button in the middle of your screen "Create Web
Form". You will have several options for a template. Take your time and
pick one, than load the template. It will pop open in the window below.
than edit your header and footer here. For example, you can edit the
say "Sign up for your FREE Gift!!". You can also resize the form and
make it bigger or smaller depending on how you'd like it to fit on your
webpage. The options here are endless,
for example, by clicking on "Form Type" in the top right corner, you
can select "Body" from the drop down menu and change the background
color. Once you've made all the changes you'd like, click "Save Web
at the bottom. Than "Go to Step 2". Name the form something that
pertains to your product or domain name. Eventually you may have more
form, and proper names will save you some time. Also, you can use the
version for both the "Thank You" and the" Already Subscribed"
page, however if you have already created and uploaded a custom "Thank
then click the arrow for the drop down menu and select custom page.
the URL address for the custom page. Save Web Form.
Insert Your Opt-In Form
Next, "Go to Step 3". Click "I Will Install My Form". Choose the
"Raw HTML Version". Below will show you all the computer code that is
your Opt-In Form. I recommend pasting this entire code onto a notepad,
document. I'm going to assume that you already have a webpage created
on your web editor. If not, you will need to do this first. If you do
not have a Web
Editor, I recommend Kompozer,
it's FREE to download, and easy to use.
Open your webpage in Kompozer. Now, I'm going
to show you a little trick I picked up from the Chris Farrell Membership Site;
scroll down and click where you would like your Opt-In form to show up.
your cursor, if you'd like, and type a bunch of x's
like your Opt-In to show up more than once, do this every place you
want it to
go. Then click on the "Source" tab at the bottom left (in Kompozer
version 7). Scroll
through the code and
find your x's. Once located, go back to your pasted code and select all
copy (cntrl c). Go back to Kompozer,
highlight your x's and paste (cntrl v) your Opt-In
code. Return to normal view and Save. Click Browse to launch your page.
Browse option is one of the reasons I love Kompozer,
it gives you a chance to
see any changes you've made before you've actually uploaded it to your
web host. Scroll down, and TADA! You should see your Opt-In on your
page. Now you
can start building your LIST!!! If
haven't already created your list and follow up messages, you can check
