Posted by Tom Kulzer (AWeber CEO) on 10/10/2006

Recently reading one of my favorite marketing newsletters TalkBiz News written
by Paul Myers I came across an amazing 100% increase in sales with one simple
change in wording for an email campaign.

As many small businesses using AWeber also use Paypal to accept payments I
thought this result and how it was achieved would be immensely helpful.

Case Insensitive Searches

Case Insensitive Searches

Posted by Tom Kulzer (AWeber CEO) on 09/13/2006

Searches for names and other data within a subscriber record are now case insensitive. Due a recent behind the scenes database upgrade we now have new software enabling this feature.

Open Rates By List Size

Posted by Tom Kulzer (AWeber CEO) on 07/20/2006

Unfortunately that doesn’t account for the huge difference in open rates for lists of different sizes. The data above was […]
