There may be instances when you want to include two deadlines in a single marketing campaign. For instance, if you have a product promotion that lasts for 10 days, and you want to offer a fast-action bonus that's only available for the first three days.

To accomplish this, you'll need to use two Deadline Funnel campaigns and three pages.

For this example, we have two campaigns, a three-day campaign chained to a seven-day campaign.

Campaign 1

For this example, In the first campaign, we'll set up a three-day deadline and navigate to Edit Campaign > Pages and add the following URL's:

The 'After the deadline' page for this campaign will also be used as the 'Before the deadline' page for the second campaign.

Campaign 2

For this example, the second campaign has a 7-day deadline that uses the 'After the deadline' page from the previous campaign as the 'Before the deadline' page in this campaign:

Linking campaigns work for Product Launch or Evergreen campaigns.

You can trigger both campaigns using an API or Zapier trigger — just set up the integration/Zap so that the second campaign is started as soon as the first one ends.

Alternatively, you can set both campaigns to begin at the same time and set up the second campaign with a longer deadline.

(For more info on how to trigger deadlines, find your email platform on our current list of API Integrations or take a look at our guide to triggering deadlines via Zapier.)


Using pre-launch with daisy-chains or multiple campaigns

We don't recommend using pre-launch for multiple connected campaigns because it can get very tricky to set up and test. If you have more than one campaign daisy-chained together, it's best practice not to enable pre-launch.
