How to Automatically Send New Posts to AWeber via WordPress

AWeber is one of the premiere email marketing platforms available today, and for good reason. The service is incredibly easy to use and gets the job done. The best part is that you can use a wide array of email templates and styles, all without needing programming expertise.

If you’re looking to set up automated email campaigns on your WordPress blog, then this tutorial will guide you through the process of configuring AWeber to sync new blog posts with your email marketing campaigns.

The Basics Of Setting Up an AWeber Account

Before you can begin configuring your AWeber account, you’ll need to log in to your WordPress dashboard and go to the Settings tab. From there, you can set up a new account or update your existing one. To get started, click on the “Create New Account” button.

In the resulting form, fill in the required fields and then click on the “Create My Account” button at the bottom of the page. You’ll then be landed at the login screen, where you can enter a username and password to log in.

Once you’re logged in, you can access your Settings page where you can configure the various email-related options. In addition to basic configuration details, you’ll also find a link to the AWeber Help Center.

Configuring AWeber With WordPress

After you’ve created an account and logged in, you’ll be taken to your Settings page where you can configure a number of options related to email marketing. You can find the full list of settings by clicking on the gear icon at the top of the page.

As you may have guessed, the first setting you’ll need to configure is the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server. This is the email server you’ll use to send email messages from your WordPress blog. You can find a number of recommended SMTP servers that AWeber supports here.

In addition to configuring your SMTP server, you’ll also need to decide whether you want to use TLS (Transport Layer Security) or not. If you’re new to email marketing and don’t know what TLS is, then don’t worry; you don’t need to. Simply put, TLS is an encryption protocol that protects all the data being transmitted over an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) secure connection. You can find a list of pros and cons for both options here.

Post To AWeber As Another Blog

The next step is to decide what type of content you’ll post to AWeber. As the name suggests, this feature allows you to post your content to AWeber as another blog. To do this, navigate to the Settings page and click on the gear icon at the top of the page. From there, you can select the Blogs option.

In the resulting popup, you can add a new blog or select an existing one by clicking on its name. Once you’re on the Blogs page, you can add multiple blogs by clicking on the “Add New” button at the bottom of the page.

To post to another blog, navigate to the Settings page and, from there, click on the gear icon at the top of the page. Then, under the Blogs heading, you can select the blog you’d like to contribute to. Finally, click on the “Post To” link under the Contributor heading.

Automatically Import New Posts Into AWeber

If you have a significant amount of content on your blog, then you may want to consider setting up an automatic feed to pull in new content. One of the primary purposes of a podcast is to inform and entertain, and that’s what you’ll get with an automated feed. Instead of having to go back and forth between your WordPress dashboard and AWeber, all the information will be handled for you.

To set up a new automatic feed, navigate to the Settings page and click on the gear icon at the top of the page. Then, under the Autosubscription subsection, you can enter the details of your preferred feed.

Keep in mind that the feed you enter will be used by AWeber to populate your Inbox with new content as soon as it’s published. You don’t necessarily need to have a podcast to use this feature; you could use a Google News feed, a Twitter feed, or even an RSS feed that you’ve manually curated. Some people prefer to keep their podcast files on their hard drives and listen to them later with a podcast app.

Use AWeber To Send Signals To Other Apps & Websites

The Final section of the Settings page is dedicated to connecting your AWeber account to other apps and websites that can send you signals. These are the notifications that you get when a new blog post is published on your site. For example, when a new post is published with the WordPress default publishing schedule, you may get an email notification from AWeber.

In addition to the notifications you get from WordPress, you can configure AWeber to send other types of notifications to various apps and websites. To do this, navigate to the Settings page and click on the gear icon at the top of the page. Then, under the “Other Apps & Websites” subsection, you can connect your AWeber account to practically anything that can send you notifications. Here’s a list of some of the more common items you can connect to:

  • Hootsuite
  • Slack
  • Salesforce
  • Stripe
  • HubSpot
  • Zapier
  • JIRA
  • Bitbucket
  • Delve
  • Handy
  • Heather Poole

As you can see, this feature is pretty extensive, so make sure you go through each one of the options carefully.

After you’ve finished configuring your AWeber account, click on the “Save Changes” button at the bottom of the page to make sure all the changes are saved.

How to Automatically Send New Posts to AWeber Via WordPress

Now that you have a basic understanding of how to connect your AWeber account with WordPress, you can begin configuring your blog to send new posts to AWeber automatically. To do this, follow the steps listed below.

In WordPress, navigate to the Settings tab and click on the gear icon at the top of the page. Then, click on the **Auto-subscribe** option under the General heading. Alternatively, you can click on the “Auto Subscribe” link in the General heading to open the Auto Subscribe page in a new tab.

On the Auto Subscribe page, you can select the type of content you’d like to publish to AWeber using the “Add New” button. Once you’re on the Auto Subscribe page, click on the **Get Started** button to begin the process of setting up auto-subscription.

The first step in setting up auto-subscription is to select the SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server you’d like to use to send mail messages from your WordPress blog. As mentioned earlier, this is the email server you’ll use to send email messages from your WordPress blog. You can also find a number of recommended SMTP servers here.

Next, you’ll need to determine whether you want to use TLS (Transport Layer Security) or not. If you’re new to email marketing and don’t know what TLS is, then don’t worry; you don’t need to. Simply put, TLS is an encryption protocol that protects all the data being transmitted over an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) secure connection. You can find a list of pros and cons for both options here.

Once you’ve selected your SMTP server and decided whether you want to use TLS or not, continue to the next step.

On the next page, you can select the type of content you’d like to publish to AWeber using the “Add New” button. Once you’re on the Type of Content page, you can select the type of content you’d like to publish to AWeber using the “Add New” button. Once you’ve selected the type of content you’d like to publish, you can click on the “Save” button to add the chosen content to your submissions queue.
