- Basic ClickFunnels Integration With AWeber
When you want to integrate Clickfunnels with AWeber, you have two main options.
- The basic integration that Clickfunnels provides for AWeber
- Advanced integration using AWtomator
In this article, we’ll explain both integration options, and the pros and cons of each.
Let’s get straight to it…!
Advanced ClickFunnels Integration With AWeber
The advanced Clickfunnels integration with AWeber uses AWtomator as the middleman.
This gives you the ultimate flexibility to handle subscriber actions at every stage of the customer journey through your various funnels.
So you can, for example:
- Add Clickfunnels customers and prospects to separate Facebook Audiences
- Send a coupon code to people who purchase your upsell
- Unsubscribe refunders from your lists
- And much more!
The only downside of this integration option is you need a paid AWtomator subscription, but as AWtomator can actually cut your AWeber bill, it usually pays for itself.
Here’s how to set it up.
Step 1: Create a Clickfunnels integration in AWtomator
We need to get Clickfunnels and AWtomator talking to each other, so the first thing we need to do is to hop over to AWtomator, select Integrations > Add New from the menu.
For Step 1: Basic Settings, set:
- Integration Name: This is for your internal use only. If you have multiple Clickfunnels accounts, then we recommend including the account name too (e.g. “Clickfunnels – Main Account”)
- Integration Type: Choose “Clickfunnels“
Click next to move through the setup, until you reach the final screen.
Finally, we copy the Instant Notification URL ready for…
Step 2: Create a webhook in Clickfunnels
Next, we need to tell Clickfunnels to contact AWtomator via the Instant Notification URL whenever something interesting happens in your funnel.
To do this, login to ClickFunnels and select the specific (active) Funnel you’d like to connect:
Go to the funnel’s Settings tab, and find the webhook setting:
Click the “Manage Your Funnel Webhooks” button, and create a new webhook by clicking on “New Webhook“.
Set the following:
- URL: This is the IPN URL you got from AWtomator in step 1
- EVENT: Change this to use just the purchase_updated and contact_updated events.
- VERSION: Leave this set to 1
- ADAPTER: Leave this set to json
Click to Create Funnel Webhook, and you’re done!
Step 3: Tell AWtomator what you want to do
With the integration side of things setup, AWtomator will now get a notification any time a purchase or contact is updated in Clickfunnels.
You’ll be able to see them appear in the Integrations > IPN History log for your integration in AWtomator.
So now we need to tell AWtomator what to do when a notification comes in.
To do that, you simply set up an IPN Event in AWtomator, which is an event which is triggered by a notification.
Simply choose “Add Event” from the menu, and choose IPN Event as the event type.
You then select your integration as the trigger and then optionally use the IPN Product IDs field to restrict when the IPN Event fires.
You can set up as many IPN Events as you need – all linked to your Clickfunnels integration – and fire them selectively depending on the product-status combination being reported.
When you use AWtomator to integrate Clickfunnels with AWeber, you can use our special hybrid product IDs to fire events for non-sale notification types.
This lets you take actions at various stages of a funnel.
For example, you can fire or suppress IPN Events by:
- Status (e.g: paid)
- Funnel id (e.g: fid_123456)
- Funnel step (e.g: sid_987654)
- Type of webhook (e.g. purchase_updated)
- Product ID for paid orders (e.g. 45678)
- Product-status for non-paid orders (e.g. 45678-refunded)
We recommend you check the AWtomator IPN History log for your integration to see the hybrid product ids your funnel is generating as this can help when planning and setting up your IPN Events.
Basic ClickFunnels Integration With AWeber
The basic Clickfunnels integration with AWeber is a free solution that adds leads to your list when they enter their details in your funnel.
This makes it ideal for people who just want to get their Clickfunnels leads onto an AWeber list, but who are not concerned with tracking subscribers through the funnel.
Here’s how to set it up.
Step 1: Add An Integration On ClickFunnels
To begin with, you’ll need to sign in to your ClickFunnels account.
If you haven’t already got one, then sign up and follow the straightforward steps on their website, then log in.
Once you’re signed in to ClickFunnels, find the profile icon that’s at the top right of your screen and click on it.
This should make a dropdown menu of options appear. At the top of it you’ll find “Account Settings”. Click on it.
On the settings page, you’ll be presented with a sidebar on the left of the screen, filled with options. Find the one that says “Integrations” and click on it.
It will take you to a new page, where you’ll find a large yellow button that says “Add New Integration”. Click it.
Step 2: Connect AWeber To ClickFunnels
When you click on the option to add a new integration, you’ll be given the choice to search for specific programs.
Search for AWeber and select it, then click the button that says “Connect Integration”.
This will take you to an AWeber branded page that asks you to enter your details for AWeber.
Enter your login name and your password in the appropriate boxes, then click on “Allow Access”.
Step 3: Select A Funnel
Now that your ClickFunnel account is integrated into your AWeber account, it’s time to select and build a funnel.
Go to your ClickFunnels account again, and navigate to its homepage.
From there, hover over the “Click Funnels” option at the top of the screen, then select the “Build Funnel” option from the dropdown.
You’ll be greeted with a screen of three options, allowing you to choose which type of funnel you want to build.
The first option is “Collect Emails”, which allows you to build a new email list which you can then make engaging.
The second option is “Sell Your Product”. This will take you to a variety of different funnels that allow you to better sell services or products.
The third option is “Host Webinar”, which allows you to build an audience for your webinars, either as they’re live or once can be replayed automatically.
We’re going to use “Collect Emails” in this example. Click on the “Choose” button beneath it, and then enter the name that you want for this funnel.
Step 4: Building A Funnel
On the next screen, you can select from a variety of pre-made “email optin” templates, which save you from doing some of the design work.
When you’ve found one you like the look of, hover your cursor over it and then click the green button that says “Select Template”.
Step Five: Integrating
After that, click on your page’s “Edit Page” button. Following that, you’ll want to find the “Settings” tab that’s at the top left of your screen.
When you select it, you’ll get a dropdown menu of options. Pick the first one, “Integrations”.
It’s important to point out that the layout will be different for people using the ClickFunnels Classic Editor.
Rather than being under Settings, you’ll find the “integrations” option under the “Email” button that’s found at the right of the screen.
Whichever way you follow, you’ll end up on the Integrations page. From here, you’ll find a list of all your connected integrations. Select the one that you want to use.
After that, click on the “Action” dropdown, then select the option for adding to a list with a tag. Next up, click on the “List To Add” dropdown, and you’ll find your lists.
Pick the one that you would like subscribers to be added to.
Once you’ve done that, you also have the option to add some tags. Simply type them into the “Tags (Optional)” box beneath, and add as many as you want.
Tags will be useful because they will let you automate your marketing campaigns even more, because customers will be able to find what they’re looking for even quicker.
With everything filled out, you can finish your integration.
With that done, you’ll find that the integration makes it so that any users who go to your ClickFunnels page and sign up will then automatically be added into your mailing list at AWeber too. Easy!
