Unbounce and AWeber: BFFs
As you’re probably aware, we announced the release of our API several months ago, allowing developers to start creating AWeber applications via AWeber Labs. We also released one of the first apps for our own API, a WordPress plugin which allowed you to easily add AWeber forms to your blog. Today, we wanted to tip our hats to the folks at Unbounce, a landing page service, who have created yet another avenue for AWeber integration.

We also released one of the first apps for our own API, a WordPress plugin which allowed you to easily add AWeber forms to your blog.
Today, we wanted to tip our hats to the folks at Unbounce, a landing page service, who have created yet another avenue for AWeber integration.
In case you aren’t familiar with them, Unbounce is a service which allows you to easily create landing pages for your website. You would typically use these for your promotion specific campaigns – whether it’s gathering new leads with their lead generation landing pages or sending your subscriber lists to a targeted landing page designed for conversion.
You can A/B split test different versions of the pages to find out which works best, leading to an optimized landing page and increased conversions.
You can learn more about their service on their website.
AWeber and Unbounce are a natural pairing for integration, since the core purpose of most landing pages is of course, a web form, with the goal of converting visitors into subscribers.
How Does The Integration Work?
The purpose of this integration is, of course, to have all the subscribers who sign up on your Unbounce page automatically added to your AWeber list.
Unbouce has kept things simple, so there are just a few steps that you need to do in order to sync up our two services.
In your Unbounce account, you can visit the page overview screen for any landing page you’re working on, and click “Send leads to AWeber” under the Leads & Form Integrations section. At this point, we will prompt you to enter your AWeber account login and password in order to authorize the integration. This information is not given to Unbounce at any time.
Note: If you have followed this setup process before, the “application is trying to connect” prompt may not appear. After authorizing the integration, you can choose which AWeber list you’d like the subscribers from this Unbounce page added to. Then hit the Complete button.
Next, you’ll need to log into your AWeber account. Once you’re logged in, make sure that you’re working in the list you chose to integrate with, and select Email Parser from the My Lists dropdown. On this page, scroll down and check the box labeled “Unbounce Form Submission” in order to complete the integration.
Do you have a favorite service or app that you’d like to see integrated with AWeber? Leave a comment, or better yet, tell them about AWeber’s API!
If you’re a developer yourself, you can start creating your own apps and integrations today at AWeber Labs.
