Building a list of subscribers who are interested in what you have to say and share with them is always a good thing.  Until recently, the options to be able to build that list without actually having a website have been limited because generally, you need somewhere to display your offer and opt in form (that would be on a website).

I was really pleased to see that Aweber has introduced two new features to their offering that makes it possible to start your list before you get a website… if you are an affiliate marketer, this is a perfect way to get started at a relatively low cost.

Introducing Aweber Hosted Forms and Smart Video Thank You Pages.

Hosted Forms are the logical extension to Awebers Customized Optin Forms as you can now host your custom opt-in form on Aweber.  A perfect option for those just starting out.  Aweber also give you some great suggestions on how you can use their hosted optin forms….

Of course, if you want to put audio or video on your hosted opt in form, you still don’t require a website.  For video, you could consider using You Tube, one of the myriad of other video sharing sites or a service Audio Acrobat.  For audio, Audio Acrobat will provide you with the code to embed on your form and have it display a nicely formatted player (I’m sure there’s other ways too!)

The Smart Video Thank You Pages are the perfect match for hosted forms – once your subscriber has submitted their details, you can now redirect them to a page (hosted by Aweber) that will show them exactly what to look for in their email box and how to confirm their request.  Of course, the Video Thank You Pages only work if you have confirmed Opt In turned on.  The video below shows how easy it is to configure a smart video page…

Couple the hosted forms with the new Smart Video Thank You Pages and you have a winning combination.
