If you’re looking to grow your email list quickly, you can use AWeber’s API to achieve double opt-in. With double opt-in, subscribers must actively choose to receive emails from you. When they do, they’re given more information about the contents of the emails. You can learn more about this feature in AWeber’s documentation, but let’s dive into how to use their API to get started.
Create An App For Android And IOS
First, you’ll want to create an app for Android and IOS. These are the two most popular operating systems used on mobile devices. Apps developed for these platforms make it much easier to integrate with their respective ecosystems.
The next step is to make a web app that runs securely in your browser. Using a service like GitHub, you can create a private repository where you can store sensitive information, like your API key. From there, you can create a basic React or Vue.js app that functions securely in the browser.
Use The App To Get Your API Key
When your app is ready, open the Google Play Store or App Store and search for your app. If you’re not yet on Google Play or the App Store, you can download the Apple app to get started.
After you’ve installed the app, you’ll need to log in with your Google account to get your API key. Then, you can use the key to register and configure your AWeber account.
Integrate With Your AWeber Account
To get started, visit AWeber’s app and click the link to continue to the dashboard. On the right side of the screen, you’ll see an option to create a free account. When you click that, you’ll be landed on the login screen. From there, you can click the link to create a new account or log in with your existing Google account.
Next, click the settings icon on the right side of the screen to bring up the account settings. Then, select web from the list of options under the Settings tab. Finally, scroll down to the API access section and hit the Get Key button.
The API key you’ll receive via email is already set up for you to use in the next step. Just confirm the email you receive and you’ll be able to use the key to complete your registration.
Set Up Your Email Automation
Once you have your API key, you can use it to set up automated email marketing with AWeber. First, you’ll want to log in to your AWeber account and click Settings from the dashboard. Then, select Automation from the list of options under the Settings tab. Finally, enter your API key in the spot provided and hit the Enable button to continue.
From there, you can set up a drip campaign that triggers based on specific actions or events. For example, you might want to create an email series that gets sent out when a customer purchases a certain product. Or, you might want to create an email series that gets sent out when a customer signs up for your email list.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless with AWeber’s email marketing automation. Just remember: you have to have a healthy amount of subscribers before you can set up automated emails. If you do decide to use this feature of AWeber, make sure you have enough subscribers to justify the investment.
Add People You Know On Your List
If you’re looking to rapidly expand your email list, you can use this feature of AWeber to achieve double opt-in. To do this, you’ll need to add people you know to your list. This feature is available in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. So, if you know someone who would benefit from knowing about your app, please feel free to recommend it.
The next step is to grab their email address and add it to your list. Then, you can use the AWeber platform to grow your subscriber base.
Use The Double Opt-in Feature
If you’ve added people you know to your list, you can jump into the settings of one of the people on your list. From their settings page, you can select the double opt-in feature and activate it.
Double opt-in requires that subscribers must actively choose to receive emails from you. When they do, they’re provided with more information about the contents of the emails, including any affiliate links contained within them. So, if someone clicks a product link in one of your emails and makes a purchase, you’ll earn a commission.
