Setting up Aweber to work with Scarcity Samurai

In order to create a multi-page campaign in Scarcity Samurai using AWeber, you'll need to have a list with a custom token field and an opt-in form.

This article will explain how to setup Aweber for use with Scarcity Samurai. You'll need to be logged into your AWeber account to do so, and if you haven't already created a list, you'll need to do that first.

Here's a link to the 'Creating a new list with Aweber' article, once that's done here are the steps for creating a custom field then adding your form to your WordPress page:

 1. In Aweber, hover over the "List Options" menu, and select "Custom Fields" from that menu.

2. To stop people from being able to refresh the page and reset the offer, Scarcity Samurai requires a custom 'token'.

All you need to do is add the word "token" into the custom fields text box, and click the green "+" button, followed by the green "Save" button - Scarcity Samurai will do the rest for you!

Note - The following steps will help you create your optin form as you usually would.

3. Once your list has been created, and you've got a custom token for your list, you can start creating an opt-in web form.

Click the "Sign Up Forms" menu at the top of the screen, then click the green "Create a New Sign Up Form" button to get started.

4. AWeber's website has an issue displaying the 'Fields' correctly in Google Chrome, as seen in this screenshot.

This section isn't always necessary, but if you're finding it difficult to procede without it then just switch to a different Web Browser.

5. Here's what the Fields section looks like in a different browser  - with your custom 'token' field sitting right there.

6. After you have designed a web form which you think looks good, click the blue "Go To Step 2" button to move onto the next step.

Note - you definitely don't want the custom 'token' field that you created earlier to actually be visible - Scarcity Samurai will be using that token in the background.

10. Now that you've created your opt-in form, you'll need to get it onto your WordPress site so that Scarcity Samurai can use it.

To do this, click the "I Will Install My Form" option, and then the "Raw HTML Version" option.

This is the HTML version of your opt-in form, which you need for Scarcity Samurai. To copy the form, click with-in the box and press ctrl + a, then ctrl + c (command + a, then command + c for Mac).

11. The final step in this process is to paste the code into your web-page on WordPress.

This is the page where users will opt-in to your autoresponder sequence.

Once you've pasted the opt-in form in, don't forget to click the blue "Publish" button on WordPress (located on the right hand side of the screen).
