The best way to integrate with AWeber is to get Syncsumo. This add-on for Synchronize can easily be integrated with AWeber through Dashboards, setting up campaigns and lists within the platform.
To get started, create a free account with AWeber. Then head over to the Add-ons section of your Synchronize dashboard. Click on the Get button next to Syncsumo, and a light box will appear.
You’ll see two options here: Single Blog or Multi-Blog. Select single blogging for your first AWeber integration, since it’s easier to manage and requires less resources. Then, if you’re running a multilingual blog, you might want to look into the multi-blogging option.
Sync Your Blog
When you sign up for AWeber, you’ll get 5 free blogs. To get started, create a blog for your site, and then import the Blog URL into Synchronize.
After you’ve set up your blog, head back to the Add-ons in your Synchronize dashboard.
Under the Head section, click on the gear button, and then click on the Blog tab. From here, you’ll be able to set up the blog as you see fit. You can choose from a variety of free themes (more on that below) or you can create your own. Once you’ve set up your blog, make sure to publish your first blog post.
Synchronize makes it very easy to get your blog post published. In addition to publishing, you can also use the service to send out mass emails to your blog’s list of subscribers.
Integrate Your Social Media Accounts
To integrate your existing social media accounts with AWeber, head back to your Synchronize
Under the Head section, click on the gear button, and then click on the Social Media tab. From here, you’ll be able to set up campaigns for your social media accounts. Choose a nickname for each platform, and then select the accounts you’d like to sync.
On the next page, you’ll see a dashboard showing all of your selected social media accounts. At this point, you can add more platforms and accounts by clicking on the plus sign next to the icon. You can also view all of your social media channels in one place from here.
Once you’ve added all of your social media accounts, click on the blue button next to the Save button. This will take you back to the profile page for AWeber.
On this page, you’ll be able to set up email marketing campaigns for each of your selected social media platforms, as well as configure the email notifications for your blogs.
Optional: Configure AWeber for Spam Check
If you want to make sure that your emails don’t get marked as spam, you can configure AWeber to check for spam more often. To do this, click on the settings gear button on the top right of the email notifications section.
From here, you’ll be able to configure AWeber to check for spam via the ‘Spam’ settings. You can also set a cap on how often AWeber should check for spam, and turn on or off ‘Marketing Campaigns’ if you want to use AWeber to send out marketing emails.
Create or Use AWeber Login Credentials
If you’ve not already created AWeber login credentials, you’ll need to do this before you can integrate your accounts. If you’re using a shared login credentials, you’ll see two options:
– Create a new credentials + Add a New User (this is the easiest and quickest way)
– Use an Existing Credentials (Recommended)
Choose the second option, and then click on the blue button next to the Login credentials section. A form similar to the one below will appear.
This is the information that AWeber will use to identify you upon logging in. It’s important to keep this information consistent across all of your social media platforms. You can also set a password for this section, but you don’t have to.
