Wondering how install AWeber opt-in forms WordPress style? This quick guide will show you how to how to install sign up forms & more on your WordPress site.
Want to learn how to install AWeber forms on WordPress? AWeber is a great email marketing platform with a huge number of users. But using AWeber with WordPress websites requires a dedicated WordPress plugin.
As much as we love AWeber, they don't keep their plugin updated very often. This can lead to incompatibility problems for your WordPress site by itself. But another issue with the AWeber WordPress plugin? Compared to a form builder, it can't do much.
So today we are going to show you the best way to get the most out of AWeber on your WordPress site. All you need is Formidable Forms, our WordPress forms plugin, and an AWeber account.
Why use Formidable for AWeber opt-in forms?
It may seem odd to use a third-party forms plugin for your AWeber opt-in forms. Why not use the official AWeber plugin? That's a great question. Here's why:
- AWeber doesn't update their WordPress plugin regularly
- The official AWeber plugin has limited options
- Formidable Forms can do much more
So if you want to grow your email list, you need the Formidable AWeber integration!
What does Formidable do for AWeber users?
Formidable Forms is a drag and drop form builder for WordPress. You can use it to create your forms, including the ones that pass information to AWeber.
How does it work? When a user fills out one of your AWeber forms, you'll be able to add them to any AWeber list you have. You can also add users to an Ad Tracking group and give them as many tags as you'd like!
So yes, you can create AWeber sign up forms with Formidable. But you can do so much more. Maybe you want to tag users who use your contact forms? Maybe you want to add eCommerce users to specific lists to trigger automations? With Formidable Forms, this is all possible.
Now, as promised, here's a quick step by step guide to set up an AWeber form in WordPress.
How to add AWeber forms to WordPress pages
If you want to add AWeber signup forms to your WordPress site, it's very easy using Formidable. All you need is our plugin & our AWeber addon. For an in-depth guide of the following, check out our AWeber documentation.
1. Install Formidable Forms
This first part is just as easy as installing any plugin in WordPress. To get access to our AWeber add-on, you just need our Plus plan. Once you have that, you'll be able to connect your AWeber account.
If you're not sure about Formidable yet, why not give our free WordPress plugin a try first?
2. Connect your AWeber account
After you've got Formidable setup, go to Formidable → Global Settings → AWeber and insert your authorization code. Click save (update) and you're done!
3. Create a form
The next thing to do is create a form to collect data for your AWeber account. To do this, go to Formidable → Forms and click Add New. Name your form, then you'll be taken to the form builder page.
Here's where you can add your form fields. Many users will be making simple opt-in forms to grow their subscribers, but you can create any kind of form you want.
Building a form in Formidable couldn't be easier. Just drag and drop form fields from left to right. Give it a try!
4. Configure your AWeber form settings
Now that you've created your form, you need to tell it to send the correct data to AWeber. This is managed from Settings → Actions & Notifications for each form.
Just click on the AWeber button to add an action. And if you want, the same form can add users to multiple lists! Just add more form actions.
5. Publish your AWeber form
Now that your form is ready, you need only publish it. There are many ways to do this with Formidable. The simplest way is by copying your form shortcode into any text area on posts and pages.
The above also works with every text area in all major page builders like Beaver Builder, for example. You can also publish your form with the Formidable widget, or by using a block in the Gutenberg page builder.
That's all there is to it! With Formidable and AWeber, you can achieve a lot. Grow your subscriber list, keep your contacts organized, and make managing your WordPress site simple.
