How do I integrate Viral Loops with AWeber?

In this article, we're going to walkthrough the steps to integrate Viral Loops with your AWeber account.

With Viral Loops, you can create a newsletter sign up form for new subscribers. Once a subscriber signs up to your newsletter, Viral Loops will provide a unique referral link so that they can refer their acquaintances to your newsletter as well. You can also import your existing lists into Viral Loops to generate referral links for those contacts.
