How To Trigger Aweber Campaign With A Link Click?

How To Trigger Aweber Campaign With A Link ClickToday I am going to share with you a very useful feature I found in Aweber. If you are doing email marketing using Aweber, you should read this post. In this post I will share with you how to trigger aweber campaign with a link click.

I was planning to send a broadcast message to my subscribers to sign up my FREE training course. At first, I intend to redirect my subscribers to a new signup landing page. But I gave up that idea because I think it is too hassle for my subscribers to sign up again.

Lucky me, I found a solution to solve my problem. The solution allows my subscribers to sign up my Free training course by just clicking a link on my broadcast email. Yes, just a link clicked.

So, what’s that?

I used the Click Automations feature to broadcast my message. How does the Click automations work is that a tag will be applied to my subscribers when they click on a link in my broadcast email. This tag will then trigger a campaign that consists a series of free training courses to send to my subscribers.

Next, I will show you the step by step to use the Aweber Click Automations. First thing first, you need to create a campaign that will be trigged with a tag applied.

Create Campaign with Tag Applied

  1. First, select the list you want to create a campaign and then go to Message >> Campaign. Click the “Create a Campaign” button.create-campaign1
  2. Give a name to your new campaign and click the “Create” button.create-campaign2
  3. You will be given 2 options on how you want to campaign to be triggered:
    – On Subscribe – Start a campaign when someone is added to your list.
    – Tag Applied – Start a campaign when a tag is applied to your subscribers.
  4. In our case, click the “Tag Applied” option.create-campaign3
  5. When you select “Tag Applied” the campaign will begin when your subscriber gets a tag added to their “Subscriber Information.”
  6. Now, specify the tag name under the”Settings” section. You can create more than one tag name if you want to.create-campaign4
  7. You will see this information listed under the “Start Campaign” section.create-campaign5
  8. Besides using tags to begin a campaign, you can also use tags to stop people from starting a campaign as well.create-campaign6
