UpViral has a feature built-in that sends over the Referral URL and other custom fields (in case they add extra fields at the opt-in page, like gender, etc) to your auto-responder. This means that when someone signs up, your auto-responder won't just receive someone's name & email address, but also their personal link (which they got to refer others) as well as other details needed.

You can now send follow-up emails from your own auto-responder that includes everyone's unique personal URL! We're doing that by adding everyone's personal link as a "custom field", which you can then use in your campaigns.

Since the exact usage of custom fields is different for every auto-responder, it is best to refer to your auto-responders' documentation or support area. In order to use this feature, there are two things:

  1. You will need to integrate your Autoresponder to UpViral.

  2. You will need to add the custom field "refurl" to your campaign first. Below you'll find more guidance on how to set that up for each of the auto-responders.

In this article, we will be outlining the steps for SendLane. Prior to showing the steps, please review the article on how to add your autoresponder: How to Add Your Autoresponder to UpViral

From this point, we can then assume that your Autoresponder has been already added. For this article, we will be focusing on REFURL alone.

Getting the Referral Link with SendLane

Basically, there is no special step or additional values or fields that needs to be set up for SendLane. It will automatically capture the Personal Invite link.

  1. Within the UpViral campaign, add Aweber as an Autoresponder. Under Settings > Integrations > Autoresponder, click Add new autoresponder. 

  1. From the Add Email Autoresponder pop up window, name the Autoresponder and select Sendlane. Then enter the info needed - these are Sendlane Api Domain, API key, and Hash key.


  • Sendlane Api Domain can be taken from the address bar

  • To get API key and Hash key, click your name at the top right corner and go to Account Settings.

  • Scroll down a bit and under Your Security Credentials.

  1. Go inside your specific campaign and into General Setup > Autoresponder. Select Sendlane and the list to be managed.

5. Name Personal invite link as REFURL. UpViral will automatically save this. 

6. Test your campaign:

  • Sign up using an incognito window (preferably, Chrome).

  • Go to Sendlane and click List.

  • Click the list managed in UpViral and open the email or the lead.

  • Under the Subscriber Profile, click Custom Fields.

  • From there, you can validate the referral link.

NOTE: Delay might happen due to traffic.
