So finally I have transferred all of my Email List from Aweber to INinbox. 🙂
In my previous post How to Create a Welcome Newsletter on INinbox, if you are wondering how to create your INinbox Webform on your widget and how to create your Welcome Newsletter after they’ve opt-in your newsletter, just click the step-by-step- tutorial post on the link above.
As you can see the “Hello ##firstname##” there, this is only a sample letter. Once it is sent to your subscriber, it will mention their first name. Makes sense?
On this one it is my “This is only a TEST Newsletter” I sent to myself. I just want to make sure that the scheduler works. And indeed it works!!! And the good thing about this is, I love all of their free layouts. I have customized my layout here and I’m pretty pleased. Don’t worry about the verbage on there, that’s only a dummy just to show you the layout.
However, on the very first time I sent this Newsletter to myself, I had to wait for INinbox “Awaiting for Approval”. The INinbox Manager said to me that make sure I have my firstname.lastname@example.org. They don’t like to see your gmail or yahoo account as your reply to address. They want to see your direct email address from your domain and so if you do that, it will be automatically approved.
INinbox FREE account allows you to have 2,000 subscribers and 20,000 emails. Plus FREE scheduler.
While Aweber doesn’t give anything free except for that $1 trial. MailChimp gives you also free 2,000 subscribers but doesn’t give you free scheduler. INinbox pricing is pretty cheap and their autoresponder is pretty competitive. Just as good as Aweber. If not, even better. For up to 5,000 subscriber INinbox only charges $3.95 a month. How can you even beat that price? While companies like these charges more. See the difference:
- $49 per month with AWeber
- $45 per month with GetResponse
- $40 per month with MailChimp
…and the LAST thing you need to do is transferred your Email list (whether this is on .csv or .txt) you can watch my tutorial video below. And if you have any question don’t hesitate to ask me.

Hello everyone this is Angela from angelamccall.com. Today I’d like to talk about “How to Transfer Your List from Aweber to INinbox”. As you can see INinbox have changed their dashboard. So let me go to my dashboard. And you can see that they have changed things around here. And if you’re a new person and you don’t know about INinbox, this can be very confusing. So how do you transfer your list from Aweber to INinbox. So the first thing that you do is go to your main dashboard which is this one. Says: Overview. Click: My Lists. Go to: Add Contacts. Go to: Import. And go to: From a File CSV. Click. And check “I confirm that all of these new subscribers fall in the OK to use category”. Proceed with my import. Choose a file. And as you can see I have click the Aweber CSV on my computer. And so I’ll go ahead and ready to import this to INinbox.
NOTE: After you click “Next Step” it’ll tell you “The page at https://www.ininbox.com says: Email field is mandatory”. Make sure you Enter your “Email Field” and “First Name” click OK and you’re done.***
Before you import your list from Aweber to INinbox there is something very IMPORTANT you need to know. On here it says Single opt-in. Make sure your opt-in is in Single. Otherwise if you put it on Double, it will ask again to confirm all the email address that you transferred in there. And you don’t want that. So make sure you have your list on Single opt-in. And then after you transferred you can always put it back on Double opt-in, okay? Anyway, once you imported all of your lists from Aweber to INinbox, INinbox will have to approve your lists and they will activate it. So that’s how you do it.
***On this “Email Field” make sure you enter your: (1) Email Field (2) First Name and (3) Last Name. Otherwise, if you didn’t include the “Last Name” in there, the First Name and Last Name will be all in the First Name window. And you don’t want that. Because if you email someone like “Hi John” but instead it’s saying “Hi John Smith” and you don’t want that last name in your Newsletter. Anyway, it’s up to you. Just a simple note.
So here is what I am saying. Did you see that “Kenneth Griechen” is all in that First Name window? I don’t want it this way. Kenneth should be in the First Name window. And Griechen should be in the Last Name window. But because I didn’t enter the “Last Name” in that Email Field before I clicked OK, that’s why. INinbox put both First and Last Name in the same field and so I have to redo all 74 of them one-by-one. Editing one-by-one. Oh, what a headache! Don’t make that same mistake!
