COMPLETING THE INTEGRATION:


First, click on the "Embed campaign" button once you're on the Publish tab of your campaign.

This will then open four steps, in which the first one is to choose how you want to embed your campaign as. 


  1. Standard - if you want to embed UpViral as a widget directly displayed on your website
  2. Pop-up - if you want to use a text/button before the UpViral widget is displayed as a pop-up on your website
  3. Popover - if you want to use a popover button before the UpViral widget is displayed on the corner of your website
  4. HTML form - if you already have an existing form with name and email fields (usually for ClickFunnels setups or setups where you're using your own autoresponder form design on a page)

    Select HTML-Form to Integrate Instabuilder with Upviral


The second step is to choose where you want the share widget to be displayed. If it's on the same page, choose the first option. If it's on a different URL (usually the page after your opt-in page), then paste the URL of your Share Page on the second option. 


The third step is to choose where you want referral traffic to go to. Usually, this is the same URL as your opt-in page if you want the loop of opt-in - share - opt-in to continue as people refer their friends back to the page they signed up from. If you want to use UpViral's page for the opt-in, then choose the first option. If you have your own opt-in page on your website, choose the second option and paste the URL of your opt-in page on the field.


Finally, the fourth step will show you what codes you need to copy and paste into your website's editor. If you're not sure how to add codes onto your specific webpage, you may need to contact your WebHost. 


The codes displayed in this final step also vary per widget type that you chose, sometimes this just shows 1-2 codes (ex. Standard embedded widget, Pop-up, and Popover setups) but sometimes it shows 3 codes (ex. HTML form setups), so be sure to copy all of the codes in their respective places depending on the widget type you choose.
