What it’s worthwhile to find out about switching e mail advertising and marketing instruments
By Nikki Meyer 20th November 2020
AWeber's free migration services make it quick and easy to move your content and subscribers from another email marketing tool.
Over the past 22 years, we've helped more than 1,000,000 small business owners, entrepreneurs, and content creators connect with their audiences through email marketing.
During this time, one thing has become clear: small business owners have a lot on their plates and wear many hats.
When it comes to switching from one email service provider to another, it can seem daunting to begin the process whether you lack resources, time, or expertise.
For this reason, AWeber's team of email marketing experts is available 24/7 to transfer all of our customers' content, subscribers and information to their new AWeber account. We also do it quickly and for free – That's pretty awesome!
Sounds too good to be true? Read on to learn more about AWeber's migration services and when to switch email marketing tools.
As you know it's time to switch email marketing providers
Do you want to get better results with your email marketing? If any of these 5 scenarios sound familiar to you, it may be time to switch to a different email marketing tool.
1 – You need better deliverability for email. In order to grow your business and connect with your audience, your emails need to be noticed. And you can't if your messages become spam.
Getting your messages into the inbox is the be-all and end-all of email marketing. Unfortunately, many other email marketing providers are outsourcing their email deliverability and losing control of their customers' email delivery process.
Not AWeber. We pride ourselves on having an in-house deliverability team that ensures your messages get to your subscribers' inboxes.
2 – Your current platform is difficult to use. You are busy. You don't have time to find a clunky platform. You need something simple, intuitive, and streamlined that works with all of the other tools you use to run your business.
Depending on your current email marketing tool, you may not get the assistance you need to find out. Which brings me to my next point …
3 – You need competent support. Many email marketing providers reserve their customer support for customers at their higher, more expensive price levels. But how does this help people who are just starting out and may need a little more help when they get up and running?
It is not so. Other email service providers place more emphasis on customers who pay more. We think this is the wrong approach. At AWeber, all customers – both in the Free Plan and in the Pro Plan – have unrestricted access to our award-winning customer support team around the clock. And we're ready to help you with anything from technical issues to expert advice and – you guessed it – migrating your email marketing from another provider to AWeber.
4- You don't have the features you need to connect with your audience. Email marketing tools vary from provider to provider. It can be difficult knowing what you need when you first start out.
So, if you find that you don't have the features you need to connect with your audience the way you want, don't worry.

5 – You need help writing emails and setting up automated campaigns. Knowing what to put on your email is a process. A process that many people don't have time for.
As an AWeber customer, however, you have a team with a lot of experience at your side. With more than 20 years of experience in email marketing, we're close by, know the best practices, and have tested things to see what works and what doesn't.
To make this knowledge work, our team has put together tons of pre-written emails, designed templates, landing pages, campaigns, and more to get you 90% there. All you have to do is fill in the blanks and you are good to go.
FAQ: The free migration services from AWeber
What can you expect from our migration process?
You don't have to lift a finger. Our team migrates all of your subscribers, their contact information, registration forms, landing pages, email campaigns, automations and up to 3 email templates.
We make sure that all of your subscriber data – including tags – is moved with their information and that everything looks correct to you in AWeber.
In addition, we complete the migration within 5 business days so you don't waste time connecting with your audience.
You will not get a better migration experience anywhere else.
Before your migration begins, you can schedule a call with one of our migration specialists to discuss your transition and answer any questions you may have. Unlike other email marketing tools, our migration services are available to everyone and nothing is prohibited.
We are in constant communication throughout the process to keep you informed of the progress of your migration.
When the migration is complete, you can schedule another call to go through the completed migration and discuss your workflow and email marketing goals. No other email marketing tool offers this level of care and attention.
What our customers say about AWeber's mitigation.
AWeber customers who have gone through the migration process have only positive things to say:
"AWeber's free migration broke the busy work of migrating everything from my ex-provider exactly when I needed it."
– Thomas C.
“I've worked with many technical support staff in my company, but I have to say that Amanda W. has been the best so far. She has worked diligently with me to migrate my mailing list from MailChimp to AWeber with great results. I was scared that I would lose my customer history but she assured me I wouldn't and after importing and attaching all of my files my data was all at risk and my fears were allayed. Thank you Amanda! You are the best! She continued to follow me after the migration process to answer my questions and make sure I get along well. I wish there were more support people like her because it would make my life a lot less stressful. I can't say enough about her, but I really do appreciate her that much. "
– B.A. Ingram
