Connecting Your AWeber Account

Once the plugin is activated, you will need to connect your AWeber account to the Contact Form 7 AWeber Extension. To do this, go to the Contact > AWeber section in your WordPress dashboard. You will see a form where you can enter your AWeber API credentials.

aweber aweber-username="YOUR_AWEBER_USERNAME" aweber-list-id="YOUR_AWEBER_LIST_ID"

Replace “YOUR_AWEBER_USERNAME” with your AWeber username and “YOUR_AWEBER_LIST_ID” with the ID of the AWeber list you want to add subscribers to. Save your changes.

Now, whenever a user submits the Contact Form 7 form, their information will be automatically added to your AWeber list. This integration allows you to easily follow up with leads and subscribers through AWeber’s email marketing tools.
