Custom Fields

GrowSurf will automatically create these new subscriber fields for your AWeber lists.
AWeber has a max limit on the number of custom fields that are allowed per subscriber/list. You can add up to 25 custom fields per list.
Please note that deleting a custom field will also delete any data already stored in that field for all of the subscribers on your list.
AWeber does not allow custom fields with the work "name" or "email" regardless of case. Because of this restriction, GrowSurf has shortened "name" to "n" and "email" to "e" within various custom fields. See the list below for more details.

You can use these new subscriber fields in your AWeber email templates. Whether you launch a new marketing campaign or have an automated drip campaign going on, make sure to always include {{ subscriber.custom_field['growsurf_share_url'] }} in your emails to provoke your subscribers to make referrals!​

Troubleshooting Tips

  • If the new participant isn't being added to AWeber, or if they are being added but their unique referral link isn't being synced to AWeber:
    • Activity logs will denote if a participant was added to AWeber or if they failed to be added. (In the case of failure, GrowSurf will re-attempt to add them for 7 days).
