We’re always excited to announce a new integration using the AWeber API, whether it’s for signup forms on your blog, landing page optimization, or even social media.
This week, we’re bringing you something a little bit different – we’ve integrated with Rapportive, which is itself an add-on for Gmail. It basically connects your Gmail account to your social media networks, displaying recent tweets or wall posts from the person whose mail you’re reading.
Our app allows you to connect your Gmail account to AWeber – read on to learn more!
What Is Rapportive?
As mentioned above, Rapportive connects your Gmail account to social media sites – for more information, take a look at their website.
As it happens, AWeber and Rapportive work very well together. When do you most need access to information about your subscribers? When you’re replying to their email, of course.
The AWeber app for Rapportive displays your subscribers’ information in a sidebar while you’re reading messages from them.
The Raplet in Action
Once it’s up and running, you’ll be able to see the lists that your subscribers are on when they email you, right in the Rapportive sidebar, like so:
You can get even more information by clicking on a particular list. This will pull up a detailed view of the subscriber’s information on that list, with information including their sign-up date and the last follow up message they were sent:
Setting It Up
To get things rolling, first install Rapportive.
You can find the AWeber raplet through the “Add or Remove Raplets” option in the Rapportive menu once you have Rapportive installed – for more detailed setup instructions, refer to our knowledge base.
Soon, you’ll have access to your subscribers’ information while you’re reading their email to you. How cool is that?
