Aweber works great for nearly any and all businesses who are looking to build an email list.

They have added a host of new features that make it very powerful, such as tagging for sign-ups, so you don't have to setup or manage multiple lists.

Landing pages are also new. They useful and help consolidate from other tools you may be currently using.

Aweber is good if you're a newbie and getting to grips with email marketing, however, if you're more advanced and want to add dynamic pages, change layouts, it's pretty much useless. You're limited to preset conditions and the option of fonts is extremely poor.

AWeber is suitable for any Internet marketing business whether you are beginner or pro. It has everything you need for Internet marketing. It even supports affiliate marketing some other auto responders do not support. If you are still starting out or completely a newbie, AWeber customer support delivers an outstanding service. It helps to keep track on the campaigns we're sending out to our clients by showing us real-time reports and analytics. We're able to know the performance of our campaigns by showing Open Rates % and Click Rates %.

AWeber is an excellent tool if you are more engaged and able to do some light coding, as well as develop massive campaigns based on behavior. It is a step up from some of its competitors and is an advanced level. It is lighter than a full-service agency, but the support team is beneficial if you run into an issue. For large corporations with eCommerce, this won't do the heavy lifting, but if you are smaller and mainly focused on brand awareness, it is good.

It is a rather strong email marketing software. We love the fact that they provide great email deliverability. We also like their dashboard view. Their reporting interface displays account overview, subscriber stats, metrics from your recent campaigns, and stats from your lists. From the dashboard itself, one can look up a contact from the "list stats" section and can also update contact status or unsubscribe a contact. This saves you additional steps.

AWeber can work on making better the default view that's associated with a list vs. the account -- which is different from most email software out there. To elaborate, the default view will always be associated with a list of what they refer to as "Current List". From a user perspective, this means that you have to skip between the lists to see campaigns send to that list. This as opposed to the more standard campaign list view that most other email software have is a little tricky to get used to, especially when you are starting off new on AWeber.

AWeber is great for small to medium-size businesses or startups, who need a robust customer relationship management system for lead generation, warming up prospects, educating buyers and prospects about the benefits and features of products and services, and to maintain healthy connections with current customers and target markets. Situations, where AWeber might not be well suited, could be for managing extremely large databases that are using media such as video and online delivery of information products, such as webinars and telesummits.

As a straightforward email marketing solution, AWeber performs well. If the user is trying to integrate with landing pages, CRM systems or other types of integration there may be some challenges because the platform isn't great at doing that.

It is absolutely the best when you want to/need to get permissions and authenticate subscribers. It's an easy audit-recordkeeping system and must-have for marketing compliance, so automation by these experts is perfect!

Campaigns can be personalized much better using AWeber. There's nothing worse than sending a campaign out with either inaccurate or generic titles or messages. Global audiences are hyper fragmented. Agility in personalization makes a measurably greater impact.

AWeber is a perfect program for small or medium companies. It is perfect for companies that do not send large amounts of emails and has the necessary capacity for these companies, whether to do marketing, inform different customers, or send information about different promotions. It works perfectly for small businesses that need something quick without so much customization or so many steps to start using.

Email newsletters for audiences of over 2,000 subscribers work well with AWeber. The most well-known competitor, Mailchimp, is free for up to 2k subscribers, so I would go with that option if the list size is small.
AWeber also has a better spam/unsubscribe tolerance. Mailchimp is very strict and will shut down your account if you have too many people marking your email as spam. AWeber lets you know that you need to do something about it if your spam count is high, but will give you time to work out your issues rather than close down the account.

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.

When I have a client that only has a few 100 followers, I always recommend MailChimp as they are free until you get to 2000 followers. If the client doesn't care about money and doesn't want to move them over later, then this is the platform I will recommend.

If you have enough budget and you are ready to spend good amounts for email marketing campaigns, AWeber could be a good companion for you. What we like the most on AWeber is its awesome eEmail analytics. If you are a blogger, you can easily email your articles to your subscribers. Also, you will like AWeber's email scheduling, it works perfectly.

AWeber is great for launching mass email marketing campaigns. If you have a large database you need to reach all at once, a service like AWeber is ideal. The only scenario where I think a service like this would not be appropriate is if you are sending more personalized emails to 1 person (or a small group of people).

AWeber is perfect for building an email list for SAAS companies, e-commerce stores, paid newsletter writers, local businesses, tourism businesses, and other types of digital marketers.

For example, a tourism business could send guests an email in various languages encouraging guests to leave a review on the major booking sites — TripAdvisor, Agoda, Booking.com, etc., and send it to guests after checkout. It's easy for customers to sign up in person too with AWeber's Atom app for a smartphone or tablet.

AWeber is great for larger email lists that need to be segmented, but not for online marketing if you want fancy templates or automation. AWeber sends emails fast and has a streamlined backend, but that doesn't give me all of the flexibility that I get from other email service providers.

Aweber excels at email marketing in addition to the built-in solutions it offers such as automated marketing. This makes it perfect for all the triggered emails you need to create for various situations such as e-commerce abandoned cart emails to retain customers and improve your overall revenue. You'll have to review how you'd use the solution.

It is well suited for bare bones type of people who don't need advanced design options. It is not suited for people who are not technologically savvy as the interface is not intuitive which can increase the learning curve.

Aweber is particularly suited to small to medium businesses and organizations who need to manage their mailing lists and communicate periodically with their customers or members.

Aweber is not particularly suited to agencies who need to broker and provide these services to multiple clients. It's mainly an end-user application.

For a basic option and sending out newsletters, Aweber does the job and the automation is also straightforward to use. However, I feel I keep hitting the ceiling as to what it can do. For a company with a limited need for bulk email - free alternatives like MailChimp look very appealing.

I would say AWeber is well suited for someone who is task oriented minded. Someone who is more of an engineer type brain. I wouldn't recommend AWeber for creatives or people who like their software to be pleasant to look at. It does its job well, but it isn't pretty.
