It is very important to be certain of the fact that whoever you send mails to, are the people who actually opted for this. At AWeber, there is no threat from spam as it makes sure to keep your data safe.

Tags are the easiest way of grouping your email lists. For example, if certain subscribers were the ones you interacted with in a conference meeting or a webinar, you could tag them differently from the other subscribers in the list.
