How to Create WordPress AWeber Optin Forms to Capture Leads

In this tutorial, we will learn how to integrate MailOptin with AWeber so you can start capturing and saving leads with email sign-up forms (also called subscribe forms or lead capture forms) to your AWeber email list.

Firstly, ensure you’ve connected AWeber by granting MailOptin access to your account. Do this by following this guide. When you are done, return to this page.

Then go to the Optin Campaign page and click the Add New button at the top to create an opt-in form.

Enter a title for the campaign, select the optin type (for this tutorial, we’ll select lightbox), and click the optin form design you want.

You will then be redirected to the form builder where you have options and the flexibility to customize the optin form to your heart content.

Having finished customizing the form, open the Integration panel, select AWeber in the Email Provider dropdown and the Email List leads will be added to. You can also add a comma-separated list of tags to apply to leads/subscribers.

To actually get the opt-in to display on your site, toggle the activate switch ON at the top (close to the “Save Changes” button).

Navigate to the “Display Rules” panel.

If you want the opt-in form to be displayed everywhere (all pages) of your WordPress site, also check “Globally load optin” otherwise use the page-level targeting and triggers to determine how and where in your site the opt-in will be shown.

Finally, save the changes. Preview your website and you should see the opt-in form displayed. If it doesn’t show up, be sure to clear your website and browser cache.

AWeber Single Optin?

AWeber will set your list to double opt-in by default. However, if you want a single optin (i.e subscribers won’t be sent an email to confirm their subscription), contact AWeber support to help you do it.

Follow the guide below to learn how to create other popular types of email opt-in forms. And don’t forget to select AWeber at the Integration panel.
