If you’re using Aweber to automatically deliver email messages for you, you’ll need to prepare yourself (and your customers) for the times when email delivery becomes unpredictable. When your membership site depends on Aweber for the timed delivery of new lessons, for example, delays will have an impact on your ability to retain your members.
Here’s what I’ve noticed lately with Aweber…
I joined some membership sites which send me the information on a daily basis via the email autoresponder service called Aweber.
For the first 3 days, things were great. Then I noticed that the emails no longer arrived at the same time each day. In other words, it was starting to take more than 24 hours before the next email arrived.
You can already see what’s coming, right?
On the 8th day, I did not receive any email. I thought: What has happened to the promise of one email each day?
Very early on the 9th day, the email arrived. If no other email arrives before the 9th day ends, then that means I would’ve just received 8 messages in 9 days. And if this pattern continues, I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ll only get 26 messages in 30 days.
Send your customers a message from the onset about how emails make take more than 24 hours, perhaps due to internet connection or email volume issues. Create your own email account and subscribe that to your list so that you will experience what the delivery is like, and inform Aweber of your experience.
In the meantime, I’ll test a script that delivers content on an installment basis not via email, but via a web page. A web autoresponder, if you will.
(Hopefully, before today is over, I’ll receive email #9.)
