How to set up your bridge step-by-step tutorial

Before you start

  1. Head over to the left sidebar and click on Bridges
  2. You'll be taken to the Bridges section of your account
  3. Click on the Add New button
  4. You'll be taken to the first step of the bridge creation

Step 1: Bridge's Main information

  1. Choose a name for your bridge (this will only be visible inside LeadsBridge)
  2. You may add labels to help you identify your bridge later
  3. Choose Aweber as the source for your bridge
  4. Choose FTP/SFTP as the destination
  5. Click on the Next button

Step 2: Setup your Aweber source

  1. Type in the name you'd like to call your integration
  2. Click on the Authorize button

  5. Once done you'll be taken back to the bridge with a blue info success message
  6. Select the segment you'd like to use as the source for your leads
  7. Click on the Next button

Step 3: Setup your FTP/SFTP destination

  1. Type in the integration's name in the dedicated field
  2. Enter Use SFTP? (Secure FTP), FTP Host, FTP Port, FTP Username, FTP Password and Root directory to connect FTP/SFTP with LeadsBridge
  3. FTP details are hostname/username/password for accessing your files on the server by using an FTP client. The FTP details will comprise a server address (EG. ftp.yourdomain.com), username and password.

    If you don't have them or don't know what they are, you can simply contact your web hosting provider, and they will give you this information.

    Most web hosts will email you these details after you sign up for a web hosting package. You’ll find your FTP information in the welcome email you receive from your host.

    Example FTP Details:
    • FTP Host - This is the hosting server name.
    • FTP Port - The default FTP port is 21.
    • FTP Username/Password - Your FTP username/password (typically the same as your cPanel login details).
    • Root Directory - It is the folder in your web hosting server that holds all the files that make up your actual website. Generally, it's "public_html/"
  4. Click on the Next button
  5. You'll now be able to select the destination segment to send your leads to
  6. You may choose to receive an email receipt for each incoming lead.
    • Type the address(es) where you'd like to receive the receipt
    • You may also modify the Subject line of the email
  7. Click on the Next button

Step 4: Fields Mapping

Here you'll be able to map your source information with your destination fields.

You'll see a field name with the destination integration's logo at the top, this indicates the name of the field on FTP/SFTP.

Underneath there's a box where you may add the information you'd like to send.

  • Check each of the FTP/SFTP fields available
  • Match the information you wish to pass along from Aweber
  • You may type the information manually and pass them as a static value
  • Use the functions to customize information like reformatting dates and times or modifying text, phone numbers and so on
