How to Integrate Deadline Funnel with AW Pro Tools (+ Aweber)

This integration allows you to set up an evergreen campaign with a deadline for Aweber. Previously, you could only integrate Aweber via an Optin Form, but now you can add people who are already on your list as well.

Set up the integration between AW Pro Tools and Deadline Funnel:

Click on API Integrations in the left menu, then select "I need to create a new API connection":

Select AW Pro Tools from our list of providers:

On the next screen, make sure you're logged into your AW Pro Tools account, and click the button to 'Activate Integration with AW Pro Tools':


You will be reminded to set up your 'deadlinetext' custom field. You can watch a quick training video here on  How to Create Custom Fields in Aweber

Once you've done that, click 'Go to Next Step':

Your integration is now active. Copy the Webhook URL for use in the next section:

Choose your list action. For this demo, we selected 'Move to a new list':
Select the list you want them to move to and click 'Advanced Link Options':
Paste the Deadline Funnel WebhookURL into the AW Pro Tools 'Advanced Link Options box':

Select the drop-down box under 'Deadline Text custom field' and select 'deadlinetext', then click 'Activate Integration':
After the integration is activated, click 'Next'
