How To Turn Off Confirmation Message In Aweber

How To Articles

Disabling the confirmation message in AWeber can be a beneficial tool for streamlining your email marketing campaigns. This guide will walk you through the steps of turning off the confirmation message in AWeber, and provide some personal tips and insights along the way.

Why Disable the Confirmation Message?

By default, AWeber sends a confirmation email to new subscribers to ensure that they have willingly opted in to receive emails from you. While this confirmation step can help maintain a high-quality email list, it can also lead to a drop in the number of subscribers. Some users may forget to confirm or simply decide not to proceed after receiving the email. Disabling the confirmation message can help eliminate this extra step and increase your subscriber count.

Step-by-Step Guide to Disabling the Confirmation Message

  1. Log in to your AWeber account and navigate to the “List Options” for the specific list you want to modify.
  2. Scroll down to the “Confirmed Opt-In” section and click on the “Edit” button.
  3. In the “Confirmed Opt-In” settings, you will see the option to turn off the confirmation message. Simply toggle the switch to disable it.
  4. Make sure to save your changes before exiting the settings page.

It’s important to note that disabling the confirmation message means that subscribers will start receiving your emails immediately after signing up. This can be beneficial if you have a well-established brand and trust that your subscribers genuinely want to receive your content.

My Personal Experience

When I first started using AWeber, I was initially hesitant about disabling the confirmation message. I wanted to ensure that my email list only included engaged and interested subscribers. However, after carefully analyzing my subscriber data and considering the potential loss of subscribers due to the confirmation step, I decided to turn off the confirmation message.

Since disabling the confirmation message, I have noticed a significant increase in my subscriber count. This change has given me more confidence in the quality of my content and the integrity of my email list. It’s important to regularly monitor the engagement and feedback of your subscribers to ensure that this decision is right for your specific audience and goals.


Disabling the confirmation message in AWeber can be a strategic move to streamline your email marketing efforts and increase your subscriber count. While it may not be suitable for every situation, it’s worth considering the impact it can have on your email list growth. Remember to weigh the potential benefits against the risk of slightly lower engagement or potential abuse of the system.
