AWeber

AWeber is best suited for small to midsized B2B companies and smaller ecommerce suppliers who don't have huge mailing lists (20,000 or fewer subscribers) and don't need sophisticated automation sequences or personalization. Because of its pricing model (based on subscribers, but no limit on emails) it's great for vendors who do multiple mailings each month but to a reasonably small list. Larger companies will likely look for a more sophisticated offering or bring this in-house with marketing automation software.

Some scenarios where Bloomreach CDP is well suited are understanding customer actions & decisions on front-end events. Aggregating data and creating segments for scenarios or campaigns. Automating and transforming data. Keeping everything critical in a single source of truth. Bloomreach CDP's campaign and scenario builder is unmatched. Building out emails and laying out segmented scenario flows is powerful way we engage our audience.

Pros

AWeber

  • Aweber manages mailing lists particularly well. By this I mean that it handles subscribe and unsubscribe requests automatically, so you never have to worry about annoying people by accidentally sending them information they opted out of.
  • Aweber provides reliable scheduling of messages. This works for newsletters that you want to write and schedule in advance as well as auto-responder sequences that you create for a specific campaign. It also connects directly to your blog and social media profiles so that you can post in one location and have it show up on all your profiles. That's really handy!
  • Aweber provides detailed analytics for all of your broadcasted messages without overcomplicating things. You can easily see who received, opened, and clicked the links within your messages, so that you can consistently refine your marketing efforts.
  • Aweber is also affordable. Some mailing list applications cost an arm and leg, but Aweber can easily fit into just about any budget. It's reasonable cost also allows it to pay for itself very quickly.

  • The most valuable benefit is the amount of independence that Bloomreach CDP has created for marketing teams, not having to rely on IT to deploy.
  • We can create and activate all marketing activities, such as banners or emails, test and evaluate their success.
  • Ability to monitor performance of real-time data and swiftly react with banner variants, change CTA texts or other retention and reactivation methods.
  • It’s simple to use and requires only a graphic designer and marketer to have a wide impact.
  • With extensive analytics, we have the ability to A/B test results, reach, and other performance metrics of each individual activity in real-time.

Cons

AWeber

  • Aweber's drag and drop email designer could be a little easier to use.
  • It is difficult to design templates for the casual user, they almost always need help.
  • The user interface is a little friendlier to a techy than a noobie. MailChimp is much easier to use but I would NEVER recommend MailChimp for serious marketers.

  • Bloomreach CDP is not good for surveys. You don't get automatic dashboards as in the case of Typeform or Survey Monkey.
  • Working with aggregates and running aggregates can be complex and confusing.
  • Web layers are complex. Designing is an easy part but deployment on the website requires knowledge of JS.

AWeber is easy and intuitive for me use. I really like the simplicity and the structure of the work flow as it saves me time. AWeber also integrates with all the other programs, systems and gateways that I use on a daily basis (WordPress, Paypal, LeadPages, Facebook and more) and if I have any questions or have trouble the AWeber customer service technicians are very helpful.

See previous answers ... the design / customization interface could be more intuitive and elegant .. for example, for me it has been difficult to easily figure out how to place pictures / images to the right, left or center of text.

It's very easy to use. The split on projects and actions in menu is intuitive and no one should have a problem to find what he wants. The reports graphics could be more appealing but they are easy to read. I also like the yellow colours as when you have so many tabs and windows open it stands out of the crowd.

I have always received prompt phone or live chat support that has resolved my issues on the first call in a competent, knowledgeable and friendly manner. By contrast MailChimp offers no live chat or phone support; they only offer email support and the response time for MailChimp is slow by comparison to AWeber.

i love their support as they are very friendly and very helpful in either product discovery or bug fixing or finding the workaround or anything else. Of course it is way better to get dedicated tech consulting especially at the early stages when you integrate the platform as it may be tricky in terms of integrating SDK Bloomreach CDP for web tracking and iOS. However, even first-line support can cover up like 80% of the issues. Their documentation is precise and easy to read, albeit sometimes it could be way better off if it contained more examples.

Alternatives Considered

AWeber

AWeber is exact in between of Eloqua and Mailchimp. It has more options and functionality then Mail chimp, but it is lighter (not as coding heavy) than Eloqua. This is a good fit if you are in the walk phase of your email strategy and have a database under 2MM

I prefer using Exponea, it is a lot more sophisticated tool that allows my company to create a lot better email campaigns compared to Mailchimp. The reporting is much more robust and useable and overall it is a lot easier to use.

Return on Investment

AWeber

  • If the campaign is well designed in the first place, ROI is immediate.
  • Occasionally, when we do test runs, we find AWeber can even show us ways we can make our campaign even better, or catch something we had not foreseen.
