New leads generated for your AEvent timelines can be sent via API to your AWeber account at the time of registration.

Then, through AEvent, you can initiate timeline actions, triggering the right message for the right audience at the right time, with your email sequences fully customized and dynamic, unlocking full evergreen automation potential.

Timeline Actions:

Adding your AWeber Account to AEvent

In order to add your AWeber Integration, you will need to first navigate to Integrations within AEvent, click Add Integration, and then search / select AWeber.

Then name your integration as you see fit, and click 'Add.'

Then log in to AWeber using your AWeber account credentials and click Allow access.

Once your AWeber account has been successfully added, you will see it's Connected state, and you are able to click on 'Test'.

A successful connection will yield a positive test result. Congratulations, your AWeber account is now successfully connected to AEvent!

Configuring your AWeber Integration within a Timeline

In order to utilize your AWeber Integration within AEvent, you need to activate it within the timeline you are working with. To do this, open the timeline you are working with.

Then select Integrations, set your AWeber Integration as Active, then click on the cogwheel to define your settings.

Within the Integration Settings, we need to select the list we want to add the registrants to (when they register). We can also select a Tag to be added to registration.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND clicking on Custom Fields (Personalization) - Show, and setting up some custom personalization fields.

These are values that include not only email and name (Join Link, Replay Link, Day of Webinar, Day of Week, Time, UTM Tracking Parameters, etc.) and are sent along with the new subscriber information to AWeber.

We've made the creation of these fields easy, and by clicking the 'Create System Fields button', AEvent will automatically create within AWeber the needed Custom Fields, while selecting those values within AEvent.

You can also use the Create Single Field to create a single Custom Field within AWeber. OR you can manually create fields / use pre-created fields. If you manually create a new field within your AWeber integration, you will need to click on Refresh for it to appear here.

Once you create your custom fields, you can click out of the pane, as the initial setup of your AWeber integration within THIS AEvent timeline is now complete!

Creating a Timeline Action to Add an AWeber Tag

Setting up a timeline action to Add a tag to a contact within AWeber is Easy. Setting this up alongside AWeber Campaign Automations, we can use AWeber tagging to send out singular emails, as well as for tracking purposes.

Within the timeline builder, start by creating an action and selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your AWeber Integration, and Add Tag.

Once you've defined all the values in the action and defined the tag in which you want to add, just click on Create.

Your AWeber Add Tag Action has now been created, and you can view it on your timeline. Per the example above, 15 minutes prior to the event starting, an action will occur that will add a tag to all registrants registered for the scheduled event.

(You then need to create a reactive Campaign in AWeber that sends a 15-minute before email when this tag has been added. Check out this tutorial to do that).

Creating a Timeline Action to Move a Subscriber to another list

Creating a timeline action to move a subscriber to a different list at a set time before or after your Event is easy.

Within the timeline builder, start by creating an action and selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your AWeber Integration and Subscriber Move List. Select the new list that you would like to move the qualifying audience to and whether or not you would like to delete the registrant from the previous list.

After clicking on Create, your action will be created and viewable on your timeline.

When this action occurs, AEvent will now move all registrants that are matching the Non-Attendee Audience from the original list they were added to (at time of registration), to the new list.

Creating a Timeline Action to Delete a Subscriber

If you wish an automation action to occur that will delete a certain audience at a certain time from your AWeber account, these are the steps.

Within the timeline builder, start by creating an action and selecting the date and time that you wish the action to occur. Select the audience you are targeting, then select your AWeber Integration, and Delete Subscriber.

After clicking on Create, your action will be created and viewable on your timeline.

When this action occurs, it will delete all subscribers matching the audience selection from your AWeber Account. PLEASE NOTE: This does not remove the registrants from your AEvent account.

Using AEvent Custom Fields as Personalization values inside your Emails

When registrant information is sent to AWeber on registration, any custom fields that you have set up will be sent along as 'Personalized Content' or 'Personalization Tags.' You can use these dynamic tags to not only populate the normal stuff like First Name, but you can use Join URL, Replay URL, Day of Webinar, Time of Webinar, etc.

In the image below, we've selected the personalization menu, then Subscriber's Info, and joinurl. When clicking on joinurl in the personalization menu, the tool prints the {{ subscriber.custom_field['joinurl'] }} (which is the field to use in the email for the registrant's join link).

You can also use these values within your email editor as hyper-links (Join US button).

When you highlight a word, such as "Your Join Link," in the image above, and then click the hyperlink button, you'll see the popup window appear.

In there, you can paste in the JoinURL personalization token (Obtained from the personalization menu in the main editor, displayed in the previous image).

How to reconnect your AWeber Integration

If you are encountering issues with your AWeber integration, it is possible that the API key issued from AWeber has been reset or changed. If you click 'Test' and it is NOT successful, first step we recommend is reconnecting your integration.

By clicking Re-Connect, you will need to log in to AWeber using your account credentials and click Allow access.


Once your AWeber account has been successfully re-connected, you will see it's state, and you are able to click on 'Test'.

A successful connection will yield a positive test result. Congratulations, your AWeber account is now successfully Re-connected to AEvent!


How to remove your AWeber Integration from AEvent

If you want to remove your AWeber integration from AEvent, you need to navigate to Integrations, locate your AWeber integration, and click on the trashcan icon.

You then will be prompted to confirm deletion.

(NOTE: Removing this integration will immediately affect its use with any timelines that it is active in.)

If you are experiencing issues with this integration but do not desire to REMOVE it, we recommend reconnecting it instead. This will allow it's configuration to

continue as set within your timelines.

Once you confirm removal, the integration within AEvent no longer exists.
