Integrating with AWeber

Integrating AWeber with your Unbounce landing page is simple, follow the steps below and you will have your campaign up and running in no time!

What you will need:

  • An Unbounce landing page with a form that has an email field
  • An active AWeber account

Note: AWeber requires new leads to receive a confirmed opt-in email, sometimes called double opt-in, before they can be added to a list.

Setting up an AWeber Integration

  1. Log in to Unbounce.
  2. Navigate to the page overview for the page you wish to integrate AWeber with
  3. Click on AWeber in the Leads & Form Integrations section near the bottom right hand corner of the page.
     
  4. Click Log In to AWeber.
  5. Input your AWeber Login Name and Password, then click Allow Access.
  6. Wait for AWeber to authenticate with Unbounce.
  7. Select the AWeber list you wish to use and click Complete.
  8. Wait for AWeber to confirm your selection.
  9. Your page should now be successfully integrated with AWeber! When you close the dialog AWeber will have a blue checkmark, indicating that new leads will be forwarded to AWeber.*

* At this point you may also wish to map your form fields to your fields in AWeber, to do so simply click Configure Field Mapping, setup any field mappings you want to have, and click Done once you are finished.

** AWeber is unique in that you cannot map your first and last name fields from Unbounce to respective first and last name fields in AWeber. You can either map one of first name or last name to Full_Name, or you can compile first name and last name to Full_Name. If you'd like to do the latter, use a custom field as shown below:

For more information please read the following article: How to Use Field Mapping.

That's it, you're all set!

Once your account is integrated, you are ready to start capturing your Unbounce leads in AWeber.

@Pera and @Cary, have you guys tested with your own emails?  Our AWeber integration requires a double-optin.  Ie., someone who signs up will be sent an email which they have to click on to confirm their subscription.

I was having the same problem but just relaised that when you enter your email from the Preview that it does not work.  When you enter the URL into a new page and enter your details then it works....maybe that is obvious to some people but I have spent all morning going over this checking.  Would be good to make a note so people do not make the same mistake as I did.  Thanks Jason

is there any way I can have a single optin rather than double optin?

Hey David - unfortunately right now the double opt-in is a part of the AWeber API being used in our integration. If this is an option you'd like us to consider in the future, you may want to post this in our Feature Request Forum at https://getsatisfaction.com/unbounce/ideas/popular. Here your request can gain traction through community input and voting to provide our Development team valuable feedback for future changes to Unbounce. Our team frequently visits this forum to consider functionality changes and feature requests from our online community.

Hi Jacquelyn, is it possible to integrate with Getresponse???? Please let me know...Also I think Getresponse allows single opt-in...single opt-in is critical for certain types of affiliate marketing..

Hi Vishal - as of right now Unbounce does not directly integrate with GetResponse. Something you could look into would be touching base with Zapier - https://zapier.com/zapbook/getresponse/unbounce/ - to setup this integration for you - or alternatively you can create a WebHook - http://support.unbounce.com/entries/307685-How-does-the-form-webhoo... - however this would involve some custom code on your end. Hope this points you in the right direction!

Hey,

So I have started to play quite a bit with Unbounce and I LOVE it so far for the incredible amount of customization possible for pages.

I have also started to look into Aweber and integration and it works OK except for the fact that I can't have single opt-in using the way you integrate the API.

Why not look into using the integration where you would retrieve the forms from Aweber and use your great interface for the customization of the colors, buttons? (i.e. the way LeadPages.net handle their Aweber integration)

And because you do not integrate with GetResponse, I don't have a choice here and I am seriously considering using another service because right now, not having the choice does not allow for split testing the effectiveness of single vs. double opt-in and track all of this.

Any plan to review the Aweber API integration and change the way it is handled to allow single opt-in?

Hi Perig - Both our Aweber and MailChimp integrations were initially set-up with double opt-in mandatory. Some of that was due to API limitations and some was because it was the standard at the time. I know we've seen things change and we're getting a lot of use cases like yours, where there's great reasons to use a single opt-in. It's definitely something we've heard about and are looking into, but I don't have a firm timeline right now. Our Product team takes customer feedback very seriously though (in fact, our Director of Product and UX, Carter might chime in here himself) and we've been getting more and more feedback like yours.

Hey Quinn, thanks for the quick update here. I understand the principles and it made sense. The industry has changed quickly and now single opt-in is probably used more than ever. I don't necessarily mind double opt-in but at least it would be nice to be able to test one versus the other. This I really the only thing that is making me debate about moving forward and recommending Unbounce right now because you have EVERYTHING else I am looking for.
