History[edit]

Tom Kulzer launched AWeber in 1998 in Richboro, Pennsylvania, and the company has more than 100 employees as of January 2014.[1]

Originally created as an autoresponder service to help salespeople follow up with potential leads, the service has since expanded to include newsletter tools, RSS-to-email for bloggers, and a large number of applications that integrate with other popular small business marketing tools and services like PayPal, WordPress, Facebook, Salesforce and a number of shopping cart services.

In December 2013, AWeber made all 600+ of their email templates mobile responsive.[2][3]

AWeber moved into its current 71,000 square foot headquarters in Chalfont, Pennsylvania in December 2012. The building received LEED Gold certification in August 2013. The building was designed by Wulff Architects, Inc. and includes a biowall, waterfall, two slides and an open workspace.[4]
