Global Fields in Aweber, A Powerful Tool

I use Aweber as my auto responder. This tip is specific to Aweber but similar features may exist with your service if you use something other than Aweber.

Two global fields are set up for you automatically. One is called the Contact Address and this is where your mailing address goes that is at the bottom of all your messages, both broadcast and followup.

The second is your signature message, which in most cases is blank unless you put something there. In addition to these you can create and name up to 25 additional global fields.

This post will describe how to make use of the Signature Message. Once you learn how to effectively use this one feature, you will know how to use the others. And I predict you will want to as well.

The global fields tab is fourth down under the My Lists Tab. Once you click on it you will see your contact box, your signature box, and a Custom Global Fields Creator form.

Anything you write in the Signature box will appear in any of your messages anywhere you insert the following: {!signature}

So when you are preparing follow-up messages, instead of putting your standard salutation and signature lines at the end of the message, you just type in {!signature}.

What ever you have in the signature box in global settings will appear in the email when you send it.

The advantage is that while your follow-up emails are evergreen, so they can be sent at any time, your signatures need not be.

This would permit seasonal messages, which is a nice touch. Or if you are a marketer like me, it could include not only a signature, but additional text including a mini pitch for the product of the day.

Currently, I am promoting a free call this coming Tuesday evening on Pay Per Click Advertising by Chuck Mullaney. It should be a good call, and the price is right.

So I changed the text inside my Signature Box to the following:

Best Wishes,

Earl Netwal

Free Traffic Seminar
Don’t be Intimidated by Pay Per Click
Tuesday 9PM EDT
Sign Up Now, as My Guest


I start with my traditional closing salutation of Best Wishes,  I follow with my name and a brief spiel or post script about the call.

I then added a dashed line underneath to serve as a demarcation.  If I had a PS in the message I would put them under the dashed line.

This allows me to add a little pitch to each of the followup emails that may be going out to my various lists.

Now since I have several different niches that I am in contact with via email from my aweber account I can create a separate code and follow-up signature for each of my lists.

In addition to inserting the {!signature} tag into my broadcast messages, I have begun using it as a standard signature to many of my broadcast messages as well.

This is not the primary thrust of my messages, and in some cases I may not want any diversions from the main thrust of my main message.  In those cases I would just use my normal signature as I always have. But in many other cases, its a nice way of keeping an upcoming event in front of your list even while you are primarily addressing them on another topic.

And as I mentioned earlier, it can be a great away to add seasonal flavor to your canned messages during holidays, etc.

Instead of having to change closing salutations on all your different messages, by altering the text in this one box, all your emails set up with the {!signature} code will reflect the new message. You could change it daily if you wanted.

By the way the call on Tuesday is at 9PM EDT and you should be on it, if you want to learn how to effectively use pay per click to drive low cost traffic to your sites.

I welcome you to sign up for free as my quest. And if you don’t have an auto responder yet, you are missing out big time. If you are new to the game, you need to know that you need an auto responder more than you need a web site.  Check out Aweber now.

Spyware continued…

Hearing the word spyware tends to evoke an image of popups for most internet users. It would probably surprise most to learn that almost every internet user has at least some spyware or adware on their computer. The reason for this is that these parasites can hide in parts of the computer that you can’t normally access.

The biggest problem with these parasites is that most users don’t know just how dangerous they can actually be. Sure they cause your computer to slow down (a lot), install things you don’t want, and more, but they also do much worse things. Having spyware or adware on your computer compromises your privacy to a very dangerous level.

How often do you enter personal information on the internet? For most people, this will be very often. Many of these parasites will track everywhere that you go on the internet and report it back to it’s creator. It doesn’t stop at that though. Not only will it track everywhere you go, but it will track everything you type and click at these locations as well.

What this means is that if you enter sensitive data such as your social security number, credit card number, bank password, or anything else of that nature, a stranger also has that information. To make matters even worse, this information is often sold to even more people; this means that hundreds of people could have access to all of your personal information.

If you want to keep your privacy on the internet, you’ll need to rid yourself of any spyware and adware that inhabits your computer. There is a free report named “Adware Removal” which outlines everything that spyware and adware do, as well as how to get rid of it. Remember, the report is completely free and definitely worth a read.

How to Get Rid of Adware and Spyware

If you’re like over 90% of other internet users, you could have people spying on everything you do as well as stealing personal information. Spyware is often talked about for its ability to slow your computer down, but not only will it do that, but it can do much more. You could be giving away some of the most confidential information about you completely without your knowledge.

One thing that spyware and adware can do is cause popups. I’m sure everyone has had negative experiences with popups. They’re obnoxious and unneeded, but that doesn’t mean they come from the site you’re visiting. If you’re commonly getting popups, it might actually be some spyware or adware on your computer. Without removal it could get much worse, that is, constant popups while browsing the internet. Spyware and adware can also install unwanted searchbars or toolbars on your browser as well as changing your homepage.

Next comes the scary stuff. Spyware and adware can not only track what you’re doing on the internet at all times, but it can even record it and send it to a third party. This means that when you enter bank information or other usernames, passwords, etc. you could be giving all of that information to someone else and you didn’t even know about it.

Not only that, but often the third party will sell this information to a bunch of others. This could mean hundreds of people with bad intentions and your personal information. This is how identity fraud most commonly happens, they could easily obtain your social security number if you ever enter it on the internet. Without getting rid of spyware and adware you are risking your personal safety.

Spyware and adware removal tools are everywhere, the problem is that most don’t work. There are close to no free removal tools that actually work. If you want to keep yourself and your computer out of harms way then you’ll want to at least get a free scan at one of the many available websites. The report also discusses this and even suggests a well-known free scan; as well as a removal tool.

Of course, nobody is forcing you to remove the spyware and adware that is almost definitely on your computer. If you would like to let strangers know what you do on the internet as well as give them extremely confidential and personal information such as your social security number, credit card numbers, bank information, etc. then don’t look into this. If you’re like most of us however, you need to keep your computer clean of all spyware and adware!

There’s a free report available that goes by the name of “Adware Removal” which discusses spyware and adware in depth and goes over how to protect yourself. Do yourself a favor and read this report thoroughly, don’t be the next person to find a cleared out bank account and no traces. This great free report even discusses spyware and adware removal tools.

Instant Relief: How to Make Money with Clickbank.

Have you tried to make money with Clickbank?

I have and while I have had some success, my record has been spotty at best.

Yes, I’ve bought a ton of ebooks on how to do it. And many of them are actually pretty accurate.  It just takes a ton of work, and a leap of faith that the product you are going to push is worth all the work required.

Work? What Work?

Well, to do Affiliate marketing right you need to create your own pre-sell page rather than sending people directly to the offer.   Now I’ve tried the other way, and have had some success with direct linking.  But mostly my campaigns either failed, or just barely broke even.

No it turns out you get better results when you do a presell.  You want to capture the prospect’s name and followup with an email campaign.

But it takes a lot of time and effort to do this. And that’s true even when you know what you are doing. It is almost an insurmountable obstacle for many new people who haven’t yet learned how to do their own sites yet.

There is a lot to learn, from taking charge of your own web site, learning how to make basic pages,  set up an auto-responder and then write copy on the page and the follow-up messages.

Now I believe you should learn how to do these things.  But it takes time.  I have some resources listed elsewhere on this page that I recommend to those of you just learning your way.

But if you are interested in making money with clickbank in the meanwhile, until now you were largely out of luck.  Until yesterday…

Yesterday, Clickbank Pirate opened its doors to an enthusiastic rush of new members.  I was one of them.

You see they have set up an affordable membership plan where people from the rawest newbie to the most advanced marketed can benefit.  All the work is done in the form of initial videos, free reports to gather opt ins, and professionally done follow-up.

The new marketer will still need to drive traffic which is a critical task not to be ignored.  Thankfully they have a powerful “how to” traffic module inside to teach newbies how to do just that.

The best part is that they offer a 60 day guarantee, so you really can try the system out and it will either work for you or it won’t.

If you don’t make what you’ve invested after 59 days, just ask for a refund. But I bet that if you give it half a try you will find yourself in clover and happy to stay on board.

This is one of the neatest things I’ve seen online. If you haven’t grabbed your membership yet, do so now. Just click on the banner below and sign up.
