How does one-click registration work?

The one-click registration framework is very simple to understand.

Using this method you can send out contest invite links to your email list. When they click on the link, UpViral will automatically add them to the campaign and re-direct them to the thank you page or the social sharing page. This will eliminate the need for them to go through the lead page / opt-in page signup and directly onto sharing the contest with their circles. 

Using UpViral one-click registration for your email list, you can create two different types of registrations for your email list.

A - Thank You, Page Link

Based on the created link ( more on it in next part) UpViral will automatically add all list members as contest participants, who clicked the link you shared.

So when they click they'll join your campaign/contest and they'll see your thankyou page.

B - Social Share Link

Directly let them share your campaign on any of the supported social networks.

So once they click on the link they're added to the campaign and will be forwarded to the sharing screen.

Create One-Click Registrations Links:

To start off, log in to your UpViral Dashboard and navigate to your campaign. From the campaign menu select Publish.

Now you will see a menu where you can create different types of links that you can send out to your email list. However, you need to Add your Autoresponder first before you can take advantage of it.

Now based on the type of action you want to perform UpViral will automatically create Text and Image Links that you can share with your email list. The available actions are:

  • Join Campaign
  • Share on Facebook
  • Share on LinkedIn
  • Share on Twitter
  • Share on Email
  • Share on Pinterest

Note: The 1-click registration link changes for each autoresponder. So make sure to copy the correct link if you switch between autoresponders.

Autoresponder not Found in the Dropdown

If your autoresponder is not found in the dropdown, don't worry, there may still be a way to use one-click signup links for your autoresponder but you would just have to manually adjust the link. In this case choose "Other". 

In general, the only things that change in the one-click signup are the custom values for the name and email address. 

For example:

Let's say your campaign's link is

In ActiveCampaign, your one-click signup link will be

In Aweber, it's{!EMAIL}&uvname={!NAME}

In MailChimp, it's*|EMAIL|*&uvname=*|NAME|*

For others, it will be<EMAIL>&uvname=<NAME>

This means, you would just have to replace the <EMAIL> and <NAME> with the corresponding custom values on your autoresponder's email editor. If you're unsure how to replace these with your own autoresponder's custom values, you may need to reach out to their support team just in case (or they might have an article on this on their helpdesk). 

Submitting tracking information into the One-Click Links (Advanced Users Only)

Apart from dynamically adding your participants' name and email address into the one-click-signup link, it's also possible to add in who referred the person who clicked the link.

Adding the link to your email: 

Get the URL from your promote page

In your email service select the "Create hyperlink button" 

Add the URL to your popup, and add some text to show your users EG: CLICK HERE

Please note: this is for advanced users only.

This can be done by adding the &ref_id=XXXXX to the end of your one-click signup, in which XXXXX is the referral ID from the previous users. To use this effectively, it'll have to be dynamically added into the 1-click-signup links, which likely requires custom development on your end.

Before: ?uvemail=<EMAIL>&uvname=<NAME>

After: ?uvemail=<EMAIL>&uvname=<NAME>&ref_id=<REFERRAL-ID>


Let's say John (participant #1) joins your UpViral campaign. Once subscribed, his unique invite link is 

Next, Peter (participant #2) signs up by clicking on the following one-click sign-up link:

Once clicked, John (participant #1) will get his points for referring Peter (participant #2).
