Hmmm... I don't have any experience with AWeber signup forms, but according to aweber.com, you can adjust the style of the form. You could try adding the image there. Alternatively, you could upload the image to your hosting account and add a html widget containing something like the following code under or above the AWeber code widget:

<div style="text-align: center;"><img src="path/to/uploadedimage.jpg" alt="Free Ebook!" /></div>

Placing the Ebook picture next to the AWeber form is harder, but possible. However, the form seems too wide already. In the current state of the page, I'd recommend putting the image above or under the form, unless you manage to adjust the style of the form itself as I spoke of.

edit the template of the form to collect the emails, and add the html code:

<img src="wp/image/freebook.gif" alt="free book" />

and that should do it.

maybe it is easier for you to put that code above the {place holder} for the Aweber form :)


hope that helps

Put a slash before the wp-content/images/150_Mastery-of-money-and-romance.png in the img tag to make the path absolute instead of relative, that should fix the not-being-seen issue. And the placing of the image is ok, but imho it would look better if you managed to integrate it with the AWeber form.
