By integrating AWeber with WordPress, you can build a strong readership by providing your readers with the service of receiving articles in a blog email newsletter. The integration requires two steps:

Set Up the AWeber Blog Broadcast Feature
The instructions below are for placing a form onto a blog that you are hosting on your own domain, using the Wordpress.org software.

Users of Wordpress.com-hosted blogs, please note that they do not permit placing forms on your blog. You may want to have AWeber host your form instead, and simply provide a link to the form on your blog.

Not sure if you have a WordPress.com page? See the differences between the .com and .org versions of WordPress.

Publish a Sign Up Form to Your WordPress Blog

In order to turn visitors to your blog into subscribers, you'll need to have a way for them to sign up.

To get started, you'll want to install AWeber's WordPress plugin. You can get the plugin here, or get more detailed instructions from our knowledge base.

Create a Blog Broadcast in AWeber to Send Your Email Newsletter

Now that you've published your opt-in form to your blog, you have a way to begin collecting subscribers.

In order to send them the articles they will be requesting, take a few moments to set up a Blog Broadcast in your AWeber account. This feature will create email newsletters from your blog posts and send them to your readers at a schedule you set.

With this step completed, your blog articles will be sent to subscribers collected through the sign up forms published on your blog, and you're ready to start seeing a steadily growing readership!
