Let’s assume that you’ve created the email in Aweber already. You will have already created the email and set it up so your email open rates can be tracked.
If you’re unsure how to do this, then please visit the post below for a detailed guide:
That assumed, let’s begin…
Step #1 – Ensure You Have Tracking Code In Your Site
This is necessary if you’re wanting to send the traffic from the email to one of your blog posts. Step #1 only needs to be completed once for your blog and then it is forever ready to track your emails.
Go to the settings area in your Aweber account:
Log in to your WordPress blog and head on over to the appearance editor.
Select the footer.php file, then move your cursor just before the closing
Step #2: Set Up Email Ready for Tracking
This is all about setting the hyperlink reference and the anchor text that you want to use for the link text in your email.
When you set the hyperlink reference, you enable Aweber to track your clickthroughs.
When you set some anchor text, you can increase the number of clickthroughs dependant upon the calls to action that you use.
If you prefer, you can simply paste the URL as the anchor text as well, so that is shows your subscribers the address they will go to when they click the link.
- #1: Configure Hyperlink
- #4 – Set Click Tracking
Step #3 – Send Out Email And Monitor Results
So there you have it, that’s how to track your clickthrough rates with Aweber.
It’s now over to you to write compelling call to actions for your hyperlinks to increase your clickthrough rates.
