Aweber form not updating
Once you’re in there, Aweber does a good job of making you think that there’s a million different things you need to do. Let me tell you exactly what you should do on this screen. If you’re collecting names, leave that field there along with the email field and submit button. If you’re wanting to depend on Aweber to design your forms for you, well, you do have a lot to do. We’re going to breeze through this at record speeds so that we can design our own forms. Hover over every section that is not “name” (if you’re requesting names), “email,” or “submit” and click the red “X” like a mad man… In fact, they’re responsible for over 50% of our blog newsletter subscribers!The idea behind this is that if someone reads to the end of an article (especially if it’s a long/detailed on), s/he must have been particularly interested/impressed with the content. Additionally, if you’re writing a series of posts on a topic, someone reading an early post in that series may want to be notified when the next post in that series is online.
Aweber is a great company with powerful email marketing software. I don’t know about you but as much as I love using the email support services, there is something to be said about having someone listen to your frustrations when it comes to managing your mailing list. It is not as professional and perhaps even a safety concern for some of you.
You know, it seems like there is never a problem until I'm trying to do something... I gather anyone who says they are going somewhere else are more likely those who are still very tiny on the IM ladder and even struggling. We all need to go read a book and chill instead of getting upset!
but every time I try to do something on one of my accounts there are issues. My clients' sites still have forms that don't work. Aweber has been down for the past several days and its disturbing. Aweber is he best so leave the boo hoos behind, there's no place for that in IM.
If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. (Loss: 00 .) But it's hurting AWeber more than it does me. I was about to go out for the day, just checking everything was ok in my paid media campaign, and AGAIN!!! Yesterday the CEO sent a letter for all users, saying everything is under control, and now, they are down for the 3rd time in 72 hours... I have to waste my time to call them, answer a lot of questions only to be told the obvious 'our system is down'. Getresponse let's you import subscribers WITHOUT reconfirmation so I suggest setting up an account there so you can mail in the meantime and then keep it as backup. they said no kind of refund or credit was in the works. I guess it's time to write that song that's been surfacing for a while now called the "Aweber Blues". Maybe by Monday, I'll write a new one called "Hello Getresponse". 3 days ago they reported significant outage from a DDo S attack. Although the means to carry out, motives for, and targets of a Do S attack may vary, it generally consists of efforts to temporarily or indefinitely interrupt or suspend services of a host connected to the Internet. Some three years ago, Yola - my site platform provider - had a similar attack. Luckily, I had no promotions scheduled then and Yola came back. I thing they should renew their servers with the money they charge for their service. There is no doubt they are working on this issue before restoring their servers and application back to a clean state.
Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress... Edit: If it's any consolation, folks, Get is down right now as well. I do think it is interesting though that Getresponse, even while they were attacked and went down, only took about 45 min to get back up and have been fine since. We are just about to start usjng AWeber and we probably still will. Could have a ring to it kinda like "Here Comes The Sun"... i've been thinking about it for a while but this put the nail in the coffin. As clarification, DDo S (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks are sent by two or more persons, or bots." - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ddos_attack Granted, there should be some sort of security in place to try and prevent it. Secondly, are you really going to leave and have to create new campaigns with a different service? Nothing to do but chew our nails, and go off to the pub... That costs money to all of us that are running promotions. Our company has had 5 years of no down time with Aweber so we wish them well in their troubleshooting of this issue. I created account, they took my money and not been able to access since.
