Autoresponder: AWeber

Welcome back! I’ve just finished putting up a free trial promo from those masters of the autoresponder, AWeber. I found the info on their site’s affiliate page, so thought it would be a good idea to try out here on my Products page. AWeber give you the code to create a small opt-in box that allows your visitors to sign up for their free trial (it doesn’t count towards you list). They then promote themselves vis email which gives you a much better chance at gaining more affiliate sign-ups.

There should be plenty of takers, as all internet marketers need an autoresponder. And AWeber are the best in the business! If you haven’t set one up yet, take a look at AWeber and have a look for yourself.

Now, having given AWeber a nice plug, I’m going to deal them out a bit of a rollicking.

I’m a tad picky when it comes to clean html code. I’ve built what I belive is a damn nice site in The Honest Way and I’ve spent a fair amount of time and effort to ensure all my code is xhtml 1.0 compliant. So I really don’t appreciate third party code messing it up with gargoyles like nested tables. Yep, even the mighty AWeber are still giving out prehistoric html code for their opt-in forms that contain ugly nested tables, repeating <font> tags and other nasties.

So I had to spend more time modifying that code to work with a <div> tags using css to keep it all clean. But it’s worth doing it because it looks better and the w3c people prefer clean html/xhtml.

End of that minor rant.

Other News

The “other” Honest Way Blog is still hanging in there and I’m making sure it still gets regular updates (I put out a version of this post over there just now. It’s important to keep it on, as it provides extra exposure for this site and the all-important backlink too. Every little helps!

The Honest Way Forum is also enjoying a good start in life. We’ve got up to 20 members at the time of writing this and I predict that number to double by the end of the week. So if you haven’t registered there yet, now is the time if you still want to get in early.

Well, that’s all for today. Thanks for dropping by and poking your head round the door.
