How to Integrate ClickFunnels and Aweber, GetResponse or MailChimp
LISTEN TO THIS POST
Hi my name is Zach Miller and today I got a question from Sam regarding Click Funnels. Sam wanted to know how to integrate ClickFunnels with a third party auto responder or mail service. Good question Sam! I want to quickly answer that for you so that way you can get right into collecting e-mails without any hiccups, let’s dive in, shall we?
STEP 1 -Log into your ClickFunnels Dashboard
First off, what you’re going to do to is: log into your click funnels dashboard. It’s going to look just like this..
Then you’re going to scroll right over to account integrations and you’re going to click on that button right here.
It’s going to bring you right over to this page.
STEP 2 – Now you’re just going to click on “Add new integration” that little orange yellowish button.
STEP 3 – Authorization
Next you’re going to type in the autoresponder in aweber or you can simply select it from the dropdown menu.
It’s going to ask you to connect the service and it’s going to bring up a new window which will bring up an authorization token or A.P.I.
STEP 4 – enter a username & password
Now you’re just going to log in here and enter your name and password. Once you do that, this is going to be added in here like I have done with my Ship Station account. Actionetics is a replacement if you have the upgrade inside of Click Funnels. I do recommend using Actionetics so you don’t need to use a third party processor. There’s a lot of other bonuses too like the backpack feature. Actionetics is also able to segment your list automatically, but we’ll talk about that in another video.
So it’s going to show up right there and it’s going to say “aWeber.” Now let me show you how this looks in action.
This is one of the funnels I’ve setup – it’s an opt-in funnel. What I have here is for a chiropractor and all you’re going to do is go to the tab “automation.” Once you go there you will see that basically you’ll have one option and it’s just going to delete the old setting.
STEP 5 – Add new action
You’re going to click add “new action.” It’s going to say “aWeber opt-in” and you are going to add them to a list from the drop down menu. For me it happens to be click funnels internal because I’m using Actionetics but for you it may end up being a third party processor like GetResponse, aWeber, Mail Chimp, ect.
Then you’re going to say which list you’d like to add them to. Create the funnel action and now all of these opt-ins will come in through here.
Now sometimes these automation tabs are not always available on Click Funnels – I’m not sure why exactly. It does this with new users sometimes. I guess they don’t unlock that tab; if that’s the case – here’s my backup plan:
Zach’s Backup Plan
STEP 1 – Go into “edit page” and once that loads you’re going to have a little tab up here that says “settings”.
STEP 2 –Then you can see the integrations and I get to choose from which integrations I would like to setup. Like I mentioned, I have actionetics set up right now but you can go right inside of here and set up almost any auto responder integration. So we can remove the integration again it’s going to be a dropdown just like this for me it happens to be actionetics. So I add them to a list – let’s say it’s my soap list. Now it’s connected and we’re done. We go ahead and save that!
STEP 3 (POST) – What I like to do after I have this all set up and working is, I like to verify the inside of my third party autoresponder and make sure that I have a single click opt-in not a double opt-in setup.
I know that’s contrary to what a lot of people teach but for me it works and if you’re just getting emails – make getting the email as easy as possible and then segment your list. Anyone that doesn’t open an email from you after thirty days is probably not the best subscriber and I get rid of them by scrubbing them off my list. That’s how I keep my list clean and I get a lot higher of an opt in rate up to seventy five percent because I do single opt-ins.
So make sure that your autoresponder allows you to do that and then the way that I checked that all of it is set up properly is to go to type in ten minute mail one hour mail whatever you want but these are temporary email addresses that you can sign up through your own opt in page so that way you can verify that you are receiving the emails first off and second that you did actually get opted in subscribed to your third party autoresponder.
