How to Double Optin Using AWeber’s API and Zapier

People optin to receive emails from brands for various reasons. But, often times, businesses struggle to know exactly which one of their emails resulted in a lead, since they rely on a single optin email to validate an email address.

With double optin, subscribers must confirm their interest in receiving emails from a brand through two separate actions.

You can use the power of email marketing automation to create double optin subscriptions through AWeber.

In this blog post, we’ll teach you how to double optin using AWeber’s API and Zapier.

Create An AWeber Account

AWeber’s subscription manager makes creating a subscription super easy. First, you’ll need to create an account and log in. Then, from the left-hand side menu, click on the “+” icon and select the Double Optin option.

This will open up a pop-up where you can configure your double optin settings. Hit the “+” again and choose Email Marketing from the pop-up menu.

Fill in the subscriber information and review the settings. Then, click on the blue button to create the subscription.

Get The Most Out Of Your Subscription

Now that you have a double optin email list, you can send more relevant and impactful emails to your subscribers. This will grow your mailing list and help you get more out of your email marketing. To get started, go back to the AWeber dashboard and hit the button to activate your new email marketing campaign.

In the next section, we’ll teach you how to double optin using AWeber’s API and Zapier.

Using AWeber’s API

With AWeber’s API, you can take the power of email marketing automation to integrate your workflow and have real-time access to your subscriber’s data.

The API makes it easy to pull subscriber information into apps, whether you use Excel or Google Sheets. You can use this to create a list of subscribers with the features that you want and then send out automated emails to those people at a specific time.

To get started, go to https://developer.aweber.com. Then, from the left-hand side menu, click on the + icon and select the API option. You’ll see a page similar to this:

  • Create a new project
  • Give your project a name
  • Configure the APIs you want to use (in this case, we’ll use the AWeber API)
  • Add apps you have created in the past (Zapier is used here for demonstration purposes)
  • Review your settings
  • You’re good to go!

Once your project is completed, you will see a button in the top right-hand corner. Select that button and you’re brought to your project’s dashboard.

Using Zapier To Integrate AWeber With Other Apps

You can connect AWeber with other apps and services through Zapier. You can use this application to connect your AWeber account with other services and apps such as MailChimp, Salesforce, and Shopify.

Once you have connected AWeber with these apps and services, you can take advantage of all the features within them. You can use the same techniques to connect these applications with other big data and marketing tools, such as Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics, and Segment.

To get started, go to https://zapier.com and select the AWeber tab. Then, from the left-hand side menu, click on the “+” icon and select the “Connect apps” option.

This will open up a pop-up menu where you can select the apps and services you want to connect to AWeber. Simply connect AWeber with MailChimp or Salesforce (or create a new connection if they’re not already on the list) and then follow the instructions.

Once connected, you will see the features of these applications integrated into AWeber. For instance, if you use Google Sheets to track your email activity, you will see columns for “Opened,” “Clicked,” and “Completed” in your spreadsheet.

From the AWeber dashboard, you can upload a file to your Google Sheets or click on the “+” in the top right-hand corner to create a new sheet. Hit the “Save and Publish” button to make your changes. Then, from the left-hand side menu, select “Email Marketing” and you will see the subscribers you just created.

Zapier: Connect Other Apps To AWeber

If you are looking for a one-stop shop to connect various apps and services, then Zapier is the application for you. Much like the other tools we mentioned, you can use Zapier to easily connect your AWeber account with other apps and services.

To get started, go to https://zapier.com and select the AWeber icon. Then, from the left-hand side menu, select the “+” icon and select the “Connect apps” option.

This will open up a pop-up menu where you can select the apps and services you want to connect to AWeber. You can choose any app that produces email campaigns, whether you use MailChimp, Salesforce, or Shopify.

Once connected, you will see the features of these applications integrated into AWeber. For instance, if you use Shopify to process payments, you will see a “Payments” option in the features menu.

From the AWeber dashboard, you can upload a file to your Google Sheets or click on the “+” in the top right-hand corner to create a new sheet. Hit the “Save and Publish” button to make your changes. Then, from the left-hand side menu, select “Email Marketing” and you will see the subscribers you just created.

If you’re looking to integrate more features into your workflow, take advantage of AWeber’s Free Plan. With this plan, you get a free dedicated IP address, 10,000 subscribers, and the ability to create up to three campaigns. You can use this to double optin and even triple optin your subscribers.
