For those of you who are more technologically-inclined, you may be familiar with the software service called ClickFunnels. Simply put, it allows you to build landing pages, email marketing pages, and more, all from within one platform. And if you’re curious as to how these pages may look, you can take a peek at their templates or use the service’s built-in templates to get started.
While it’s a great tool for creating basic pages, perhaps the most valuable feature of ClickFunnels is how the platform allows you to integrate with several other well-known online marketing services, including AWeber. In this article, we’ll discuss how to connect ClickFunnels to AWeber so you can begin using the service’s proven methods to grow your business.
Part 1: Setting Up The Connection In AWeber
Since most businesses live online these days, it’s quite natural that many of them prefer to use email marketing as their main form of marketing and selling. And if you’re reading this, I bet you’re one of those people too!
But if you’re using AWeber to collect email addresses, you’re probably wondering what to do with those addresses once you have them. That’s where ClickFunnels’ power comes in. With its robust email marketing capabilities, you can build an email list and then use that list to send automated email campaigns to your audience.
To connect ClickFunnels to AWeber, you’ll need to do the following:
1. Decide Which Email Campaign Platform You’ll Use
Whether you decide to go with an easy-to-use service like MailChimp or want to roll your own email marketing software, the first thing you need to do is figure out which email campaign platform you’ll use. MailChimp is a popular choice among businesses due to its simplicity and versatility. If you don’t need a sophisticated tool to manage your campaigns, then MailChimp is a good option: it allows you to build sophisticated email campaigns with relative ease. And if you’re looking to grow a list quickly, MailChimp offers up a Get Started button that’s practically begging you to click it.
On the other hand, if you want to build a team of marketers and you need a tool that can help you manage those campaigns, then HootSuite is for you.
2. Choose An Email Campaign Template
Once you’ve picked your email campaign platform, it’s time to move onto the next step: choosing an email campaign template for your new account. As the name would suggest, a campaign template is a unique email format that you can use to craft your email campaigns. And if you’ve ever used AWeber, then you know that the service offers up a large number of templates that you can choose from. If you want your emails to look like the AWeber emails you know and love, then go for one of the templates that resembles the classic example.
If you’re looking for something different, you can also build your own template from scratch and learn some basic HTML along the way.
3. Confirm Your Email
Now that you have a good idea of what email campaign platform you’ll use and have chosen a template, it’s time to confirm your email address with AWeber. To do this, visit Settings → Tools → Email Confirmation and enter the email you’ll use for your ClickFunnels account. Make sure you add the @ symbol at the beginning of your email address so AWeber knows it’s an automated email and not an actual person trying to contact you.
Once you’ve confirmed your email, it’s time to move onto the last step: connecting ClickFunnels to AWeber.
4. Configure The Connection In ClickFunnels
To connect ClickFunnels to AWeber, you’ll need to do the following in the platform:
1. Go to Tools → Integrations and select the AWeber option.
2. On the next screen, you’ll see a list of all the platforms that ClickFunnels supports. Make sure you choose AWeber and then click Connect.
3. On the next screen, you’ll need to enter your AWeber API keys. If you don’t have keys yet, then click Generate New Keys.
4. After you’ve generated your keys, copy and paste them into the appropriate fields.
And that’s it! Once you’ve connected ClickFunnels to AWeber, you can begin using the service’s proven methods to grow your business.
