Sneak Peek at AWeber’s New Form Builder

In a word... WOW! :D

One of the biggest issues most people have had with Aweber and list building is creating a stylish, customized opt-in form. Up until now, that is...

This brand new opt-in form builder is scheduled to release sometime this coming week. Aweber hasn't even publicly announced it yet.

Be sure to watch the video above to get a sneak peek at how this form builder will work. It is incredibly nice. Definitely a major upgrade from our options with the traditional Aweber forms.

A few highlights of the new opt-in form builder:

  • Pre-created web form templates in a variety of colors, styles and sizes.
  • Advanced design tools - customize your submit buttons, form colors/sizes, labels and more with a fully featured point-and-click editor.
    That way, even if you don't want to start with one of our templates, you can still create great-looking signup forms without having to know a lick of HTML.
  • Better-looking hover and lightbox forms: we've modernized the styles and animations for these. No more blue Windows 95-looking bar on popover forms (unless you want to add one) and the lightboxes are much smoother.
  • Plus you can make ANY form a lightbox or popover form now, instead of just having the one look for each of those types.
  • Dynamic thank you pages: you may be familiar with our audio thank you pages that tell people to go confirm their subscriptions.
  • With the new web form builder, we've added a *video* version of this that will show the subscriber your exact confirm message (with the correct "from" and "subject" lines)...
    ...and we'll detect what email program they're most likely using (Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Outlook, Mac Mail, etc) and show them what your confirm email looks like in that exact program. Uber-cool stuff IMHO.
  • Insert a privacy policy with one click - handy for folks who don't want to write their own email privacy policy.

I am really looking forward to seeing this new feature go live, and taking it for a test drive! ;) I'd love to hear your thoughts - excited??

Best,

    It was just this week I was moaning about the fact that Aweber forms were dull!! This makes things a little more exciting!!!

  2. Sa-weet!!!! Can't wait. Thanks for the heads-up Lynn.

  3. Holy awesomeness! I definitely can't wait to get in there and play with the new form features.

  4. I love having more options for dynamic thank you pages encouraging our subscribers to check their email to double opt-in. I've been creating my own, but will be interested in seeing if the aweber options are even better.

    Extra design tools will be wicked cool too!

    Can't wait to dig into the new features.

    • I look forward to seeing that as well. Customized confirmation pages & emails, as well as custom follow-up are SO important. That's the reason Aweber is my top choice for list management, simply because of all the customization options & detailed tracking.

  5. Well Lynn - All I can say is no more form envy. I can't tell you how many time I have wished I could do something (myself) more dynamic with the design of the web forms on my blogs. I can't wait to get my hands on it and I think it will make the set up of on affiliate and review pages much easier as well.

    Thank you for giving us the scoop!

  6. That's a HUGE improvement. Looking forward to it!

  7. I just spent the entire morning trying to squeeze one of their boring forms into a more exciting graphic. Looks like I won't have to do that any more. I can't wait to check it out!

  8. femalenebizguru says:

    Hey the graphics look really great, can't wait!!

  9. Lisa Marie Mary says:

    This is so exciting - I love it! I'm going to be obsessively logging in over there again and again, watching for it to be released! Woohoo! And now that I'm "Aweber-fearless", I can use this new tool to put it on all my sites! Awesome!!

  10. This looks like it's going to be really awesome. Thanks for leaking this video to us Lynn. Can't wait to try it out, it certainly looks like it will be a time saver with some nice looking results.

  11. Syed Akram says:

    This is awesome! Look fwd to hear it from Aweber. Thanks for the update.

  12. wow, i'm going to try it out asap!

  13. Gail J Richardson says:

    This is awesome .I got in there 2 days ago and set mine up for my website and was that an experience but I made it.Now I will go back and do it again while it is still fresh.. and get a prettier one . Thanks Lynn

  14. Very timely and very excited about this coming from aweber. Also dug the Jealous Sound t-shirt.

  15. I'm thinking the actual release will be on Tuesday this week, but I'll let you know for sure as soon as I do.

  16. New tools and forms at aweber? Be still my heart!

    Thanks for the "be on the look out for aweber" notice, Lynn.

    I love messing with graphics and forms and all that stuff so I can't wait.

    I like your speculation of a Tuesday release; after all, that's when new cds and all are released. So Tuesday for aweber works for me.

  17. Hey Lynn & all,

    Wow - these are some exciting responses! I can't wait to let you all get your hands on the new web form builder. It's not out just yet, but it's coming very soon...

    We're talking about it on our blog today (linked via my name above) and will have more information coming out soon. Stay tuned :)

  18. Wow - what a step up for Aweber. How many of us have purchased optin graphic forms only to spend hours (or days) trying to get the code inserted correctly?! Do you know if this is for the basic or the upgraded account?

  19. Gail - I believe this feature will be available for ALL accounts.

    Justin, off to check out the blog post!

  20. Wow very cool...I was actually searching for coupon codes for Aweber and I found your site and the cool video.

    Do you have an idea for coupon codes?

    I consider myself newbie since am just a couple of months old while working on a J.O.B. here...

  21. Holly Powell says:

    I am so excited about this! In my mind this is exactly what is needed--the only piece of the aweber puzzle that has been missing.

  22. Brandon Middleton says:

    Hey Lynn,

    Has Aweber said when they will be making this feature available to us?

  23. Aweber's new form designer is now live! I used it this morning. Very slick. :)

  24. Just a heads up, the web form generator is now live for *all* AWeber client accounts.
