How To Articles

In this article, I will provide instructions on how to include a name when using AWeber, a widely used email marketing platform. By incorporating a name into your email campaigns, you can add a personalized element and make your subscribers feel appreciated. Let’s begin!

Step 1: Accessing Your AWeber Account

To add a name in AWeber, you first need to log in to your AWeber account. Once you’re logged in, you will land on your AWeber Dashboard. This is where you can manage your email lists, create campaigns, and access various other features.

Step 2: Creating a New Campaign

In order to add a name to your email campaigns, you need to create a new campaign or select an existing one. To create a new campaign, click on the “Create a Broadcast” button on the Dashboard. This will open the Campaign Setup page.

On the Campaign Setup page, you can give your campaign a name, choose the list you want to send the campaign to, and select the email template you want to use. Make sure to choose a template that includes a merge tag for the subscriber’s name.

Step 3: Adding a Merge Tag for the Name Field

Once you have selected a template, you will need to insert a merge tag for the name field. A merge tag is a special code that pulls in information from your subscriber’s profile, such as their name, email address, or any other custom fields you have set up.

To add a merge tag for the name field, locate the area in your email template where you want to include the subscriber’s name. Then, click on the “Personalize” button in the email editor toolbar. From the dropdown menu, select the merge tag for the name field (usually {name} or [% name %]). This will insert the merge tag into your template.

Step 4: Preview and Test Your Campaign

Before sending out your campaign, it’s always a good idea to preview and test it to ensure everything looks and works as expected. AWeber provides a built-in preview and test feature that allows you to see how your campaign will appear to your subscribers.

To preview and test your campaign, click on the “Preview & Test” button in the email editor toolbar. This will open a preview window where you can see how your email will look in various email clients and devices. Make sure to check that the subscriber’s name is correctly merged into the email content.

Step 5: Sending Your Campaign

Once you are satisfied with the preview and test results, you can go ahead and send out your campaign. AWeber offers various options for scheduling and sending your campaigns, including immediate sending or scheduling for a specific date and time.

To send your campaign, click on the “Send Options” button in the email editor toolbar. From here, you can choose your desired sending options and click on the “Send Message” button to deliver your campaign to your subscribers.


Adding a name to your email campaigns in AWeber is a simple and effective way to personalize your communication with your subscribers. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can ensure that each email you send includes your subscriber’s name, making them feel more connected to your brand. Remember to always preview and test your campaigns before sending them out. Happy emailing!
