AddEvent & Aweber: A Dynamic Duo

Connecting AddEvent and AWeber enables you to enhance your event management and marketing workflows, meaning your customers will be happier than ever!

Thanks to Zapier’s help, you can automatically send information between the two platforms — with no code required! And, you can do more than just connect these apps. You can actually automate entire processes from start to finish, saving yourself and your team hours of work!

Let’s Talk About the Benefits 

There are a ton of benefits to syncing up your AddEvent account with your AWeber account. Our favorite template when setting up AddEvent and AWeber through Zapier is to push RSVP data from AddEvent into AWeber so you can leverage event data throughout your customer lifecycle. 

Segmentation & Personalized Engagement

If you’re using AWeber, chances are you’re already familiar with the benefits of email marketing and marketing automation. Most event marketers and email marketers work together to make sure effective communications are going out about the events attendees have gone to, or promoting upcoming events. 

Some marketers are lucky enough to be both the event and email owners. If that is you, you’ll especially love cutting out the manual process of exporting your RSVP data from AddEvent and importing it into AWeber. 

Suppose you’ve used the custom RSVP fields in AddEvent. In that case, you’ll understand the importance of using that data in your email marketing and know that you need to push those fields into your CRM to keep it the source of truth for all of your contact data.

Once you’ve updated your contact records, you can segment your list based on the events your customers have attended or other information you’ve captured in the custom RSVP fields. 

From there, you can send personalized emails that recap the event they attended, share resources such as recordings, decks, or one-pagers, send surveys, and drive attendance to future relevant events. 

Utilize AWeber’s powerful automation features to trigger your follow-up emails, reminders, and event-specific promos based on the list you create from your AddEvent data.

Automation for Effective and Streamlined Marketing 

Increase your event attendance and engagement by adding an add to calendar link in your AWeber emails. Adding your add to calendar links directly in your marketing emails reduces friction for your customers, removing the need for them to manually add your event to their calendar. When clicking the add to calendar link, AddEvent will take them directly to their calendar, with your event details filled out, and all they will need to do is hit “Save”.

Visibility for Event Marketing Efforts

Maximize your event’s overall visibility and increase conversion rates when you embed your add to calendar button or AddEvent calendar directly onto an AWeber landing page. Your customers are already visiting your landing page, so why not give them an easy-to-use button or calendar interface where they can save your events to their calendar with a simple click? 

Showcase your upcoming events, promote RSVPs and registrations, and capture valuable leads in one easy-to-find place.
