Aweber Autoresponder Integration

This article is for: Legacy WebinarJam Users (Customers who joined prior to Sept 2017)

Autoresponder integration exists for the sole purpose of getting your attendee from the WebinarJam interface into your regular autoresponder. It's a simple co-registration process. Here's how to set it up.
NOTE: Aweber can and will block multiple registrations from IPs.  Once a second subscription attempt comes from the same IP address within a 5-15 minute period, the captcha form will be triggered. It will not stop populating until a significant amount of time has passed, about 60 minutes or so. This is a global setting that cannot be changed. If so, this will not be an issue for new subscribers signing up regularly through the form.
