Adding tags to contacts in AWeber

Hi,

AWeber introduced tags in their API which allows you to attach tags to your contacts while adding using their API, you can add multiple tags for a contact.

Why you need AWeber tags?

Tags are simple way to segment lists, lets say you are collecting subscribers this year and you can attach a tag to them as “2017” so you can segment these any time without messing around lists.

With Optingun, adding tags is absolutely simple, mention as many tags you want.

For example “2017,newleads,subscribers“, you are allowed to put multiple tags separated by comma(,) in the same line so all those are processed for the contacts captured.

 

In the integrations tab when you select AWeber as your mailing partner, you get a new field for tags along with list selection as in the below picture

That’s all from your side ūüôā Optingun takes care of ¬†everything, please create your FREE ACCOUNT if you don’t have Optingun account yet.

How social-optins help businesses grow their subscriber list?

For any size company its very important to have audience, when you launch a new product or service, first thing you would do is fire out newsletters, social optins help you reach better deliverability in building subscriber list.

Now, if you have a website, you probably know how to convert your website visitors as subscribers to your newsletters, make some flashing bars, add popup forms, exit-intent forms and a lot of stuff to collect email addresses but the truth is visitors already know what business do by collecting emails and they are bored of regular form-filling subscriptions.

What you could do? there is another trick, instead of displaying a form and asking them to put their name and email directly, you could engage with them by asking a simple question with Yes-NO buttons below , and if they click YES then you can bring up a form to fill or redirect them to a different page based on their answer.

Sounds good? but the problem isnt solved yet, the next problem is with visitors

#1 many visitors find it hard to enter their name and email ID every time with the forms
#2 there are few people who enter fake email IDs so your emails will never reach them

With Optingun¬†we are solving these problems we integrated social-optins, we are first in this industry to implement this mechanism to help businesses grow in real paths, allowing visitors to signup/subscribe using their Facebook/Google account, since visitors¬†don’t have to type anything its easy for them to subscribe, its all in matter of 2 clicks- just that simple.

What about website owner? do they need to create Facebook,Google apps to use Optingun social-optins?

No, no need to setup any apps for this, Optingun works just with its own Apps & access to serve you your visitors email IDs.

And with this, fake email ID problem also solved, you get 100% authentic emails which increases your delivery rates and as you reach to the real emails, you get more sales & customers.

 

To see how this social optin works, please check our demo page here, we setup a basic demo form for you to understand this new mechanism.

Connecting Optin forms with ZOHO Campaigns

Hello,
In business you need to use a lot of tools and process data across different software and platforms to make things easy, but the process itself isn’t really easy with out ZOHO¬†products, they offer a complete line up of business requirements from Accounting, HR, Email marketing, support systems and even Campaign management.

ZOHO Campaigns let you create campaigns that really work, drive traffic or generate leads and connect with auto-responders and etc,.

ZOHO offers everything as single well integrated package so every ZOHO software works with other ZOHO software seamlessly, helping managers to feel easy and quick to solve problems in their day to day jobs.

But its not really that easy yet, there are businesses/individuals who use other tools which offer better features than ZOHO campaigns for capturing leads, but still want to use ZOHO other products, so there is need for integration between existing lead capture systems and ZOHO campaigns, unfortunately very few lead capture softwares support ZOHO, for example if you are using HelloBar and want to put those leads to ZOHO Campaigns – you simply can not do that unless you sit and code the integration.

Optingun solves this gap by offering a pre-coded integrtion between Optingun and ZOHO Campaigns, so every lead captured on your WordPress blogs and other websites can be put into ZOHO and it takes off from there.

 

How to create API connection between ZOHO and Optingun?

Its simple, to work with ZOHO Campaigns API, you need to do 4 steps that are explained below

 

#1 Collecting ZOHO API Key:  you need to provide API key for authenticating with ZOHO API, API key can be found here Settings > Developer Space.

If this is your first time then your API key isnt ready yet, click get API Key button to create a new API Key, this Key is a private one and you are suggested to not share this with anyone.

Once you click Create API key button, you will get a Key and copy that for saving into Optingun

 

#2 Collecting ZOHO List ID :¬†All the contacts are grouped into different lists there, so to add any subscriber, a List is required and every list in ZOHO will have its own unique ID representing that list for API operations, to get the ID of your contact list in ZOHO, ¬†go to “List Management” and click on the list that you want to add subscribers to and go to the last tab “List Tools”, you will see some thing like in the below screenshot and copy that List ID to configure in Optingun.

 

#3 Saving ZOHO APi key in Optingun : Now remaining part is in Optingun, go to Optingun Dashboard and API Configuration put your ZOHO API key in the ZOHO API Key field, save the settings- API connection is completed.

 

#4 Setting list ID in Optin Form : Now go to the Optin form that you want to connect leads to ZOHO, edit that Optin form, go to Integrations tab in the left side panel, select Integration ZOHO from the select box, when you select ZOHO a new field will appear just beneath asking to enter ZOHO List ID, put the List ID you copied form ZOHO here and click Add Integration button and save the Form back.

 

Thats all, your website traffic is now converted into leads using Optingun’s exit intent forms and social signups so more people are subscribed and all those leads are safely and automatically get¬†added to ZOHO Campaigns.

How to build Social Following for your company

Hello,

 

For any Company/Brand/Organisation/Business social following is very important because it is the place where modern word spend more time in, it is the place where news is spread instantly over the world, it is the place where people connect over-seas.

But building your social followers isnt as easy as creating social accounts like facebook,twitter etc,.

You need to stay in touch with your followers, keep them engaged and you have to build channels from your other traffic sources like web sites to your social profiles so people get to see you then follow you.

What are the ways of pulling website visitors to Social profiles and Converting them as followers?

If you are using WordPress as your website software then you have a lot of plugins to create social action buttons like “Facebook Like”, “Twitter Follow”, “YouTube Subscribe” etc but again people respond more to dynamic content than static action button that load into website when webpage loads into browser.

Dynamic content is some thing that happens based on user actions, for example displaying Share buttons when users scroll to bottom of the page, so visitors feel more like interacting and show interest to take social actions on your channels.

You can also add an exit-popup which will display a form when visitors attempt to leave your website, with share actions and subscribe option.

Another way is adding a social-bar that dynamically appears on your webpages with all the social options so people can interact with it anytime they want on any page.

It may take hours of efforts if you know programming to build these, or you may have to hire a programmer to build and to manage these frequently which is pain in the pocket Рwe solve this problem with our software Optingun which helps you to create any kind of Popup or signup form or conversational dialog or even social optins using Facebook & Google with out any coding and we also provide analytics on how your forms are performing and chance to apply variations and do A/B tests to decide which one works.
