How to Install the Ad Network Placement on AWeber
Ready to get your Paved ad network placement live in your AWeber email newsletter? In this post, we’re going to share with you the step-by-step instructions to get you there.
How to set up targeted ads in your newsletter template
So that your placement can be easily included in future newsletters, we recommend that you put ad placement HTML in your email template rather than in a one-off email.
How to configure your ad parameters
There are two parameters required to deliver an ad: a subscriber’s email and a campaign ID to uniquely identify the newsletter sent.
We don’t store the subscriber’s email address but we do store the campaign ID to track your earnings.
Select AWeber from the list of ESPs and Paved will automatically insert the appropriate merge tags in the code.
How to put the ad code in the header
In your Paved account, copy the provided header code for your ad placement.
On the AWeber home screen, navigate to the Messages tab, and then Email Template Manager.
Then click on “Import a Template”.
You can now paste your HTML template code into the editor.
Then you will want to paste your PAVED ad code just above the </head> tag in the HTML editor on the left side of the screen. It should look something like what you see below.
After you're done, click ‘Pick Dropzones’ in the bottom right corner to select any areas within the email where you want to incorporate drag and drop features.
When you’re done adding your dropzones, click Template Builder.
Then click “Save as Template” on the right-hand side of the screen.
Finally, click “Save & Exit” on the lower right side of the screen.
Where to install the ad placement code
The code below is for the ad placement. It must be pasted exactly in the right location within the same code editor used before.
Paved includes some existing code from your ad template to help you locate the correct location as shown below.
Next, click the ‘copy code’ button to copy the ad placement code.
From the AWeber Email Template Manager screen, scroll down to the template you wish to edit and click on the name to open it. Then click “Edit Theme” on the lower-left side of the screen.
Then paste your code in the section indicated in the example provided in your Paved account. It should look something like what you see below.
After you're done, click ‘Save’ in the bottom-right corner of the Template Builder screen.
Testing your ad placement
Go back into your Email Template Manager and click on the template you want to test. Click on “Preview & Test” in the top right corner of the screen.
You can check the appearance of your message on this page as well as send yourself a test version of the email. To send a test version of your message, enter your email address in the field on the right-hand side of the page.
Then click Send Test Message.
Be sure to review the test email sent to your inbox to ensure formatting and ad placement look correct.
To remove code from a send, simply delete the main ad placement code. It is not necessary to remove the header code.
