The AWeber platform has been a popular one among online marketer thanks to its affordable pricing, high engagement rates, and powerful features. But did you know that you can take your Aweber list and lightbox functionality and use them with your WordPress site as well? We’re going to teach you how to easily integrate a lightbox into your WordPress site using AWeber, as well as give you some best practices for doing it right.
Why Use A Weber Lightbox With Your WordPress Site?
There are a lot of reasons why you might want to use aWeber with your WordPress site. For one thing, AWeber is a very well-known and trusted email marketing platform with a large user base. Thus, it’s highly likely that your subscribers already have an account with AWeber. So, adding a lightbox to your WordPress site using AWeber is a great way to encourage more people to subscribe and engage with your content.
How To Integrate A Weber Lightbox Into Your WordPress Site
Before you start, you’ll need to have a WordPress site. You can simply use the free WordPress VIP hosting plan, which comes with a one-click installer for WordPress.
Next, you’ll need to have an AWeber account. If you don’t have one yet, you can sign up for a free account here. Once you have your AWeber account, you can head over to your Dashboard and click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner.
From there, you can click on “Social Media” and then click the “Integrations” tab.
Next, you’ll want to click the “+” symbol to the right of the “AWeber” box and then click the “Add” button to add the Aweber integration to your dashboard.
Once that’s done, you can return to your WordPress site and then scroll down to the bottom of the screen. You’ll see a small box with a “+” symbol inside of it. Click that box to enter the “AWeber” interface.
From here, you can click the “Profile” tab and then click on the “+” symbol next to the “AWeber Lightbox” box. This will open up the integration settings for the Aweber lightbox. You can enter a name for the lightbox, choose whether or not to hide the box on the site, and then scroll down to the bottom of the page to save the settings.
After that, you can return to your WordPress Dashboard and then scroll back to the top of the page to bring up your site navigation. From there, you can click the “AWeber Lightbox” tab and then click the “View Profile” button for the lightbox you just configured.
That’s all there is to adding a lightbox to your WordPress site using AWeber. From here, you can start configuring the lightbox and its options. First, you’ll want to visit the “AWeber” admin page here and then click the “Settings” button in the upper right corner.
From there, you can add an image for the lightbox. Make sure you upload an image that’s at least 500 pixels wide by 350 pixels tall. You can also enter a description for the image. When configuring the image, be sure to check the box that says “Hide watermark” and then click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the page.
The Many Different Options For A Weber Lightbox
With AWeber, you have a couple of options for how you want the lightbox to look. First, you can choose a “light” or “dark” theme for the entire site. If you go with the “light” theme, then all of the website’s content and elements will be white, while the dark theme is going to give everything a more traditional look.
Second, you can choose the background color for the website. If you go with white as the background color, then the entire website will be white. If you choose a different color, then only the text inside of the blog posts will be white, while the rest of the site will be the selected background color.
As for the layout, you have a few options here as well. First, you can choose between a “grid” or “textual” layout for the blog posts. The grid layout is going to put the blog posts into a neat, curated grid on the site. The textual layout is all about having lots of text on each blog post.
Next, you can choose the number of columns in the grid. There are three options here: one, two, or three columns. Going with one column is great for having a small blog with just a handful of posts. Going with two columns is optimum for medium sized blogs, while going with three columns is perfect for large blogs with lots of content.
Once you’ve set up your AWeber account and integrated the lightbox into your WordPress site, you can start sharing blog posts to grow your audience and gain credibility. If you’re worried about getting traffic to your site, don’t be. AWeber’s curated audience is very helpful for growing a brand’s presence on social media.
