Getting Started

Deadline Funnel can help boost your sales for your marketing campaigns in Drip! 😎

Each subscriber in your sequence will be automatically assigned their own custom deadline - whether you're doing a webinar… an email sequence… an automated launch… or really ANY type of campaign.

If you're not using a deadline you're leaving money on the table!

Here's a quick guide on how to get started with Deadline Funnel + Drip, so you can build your evergreen funnel.

1. Create your Deadline Funnel campaign

First things first - you will need to create a campaign in Deadline Funnel before you can set up the integration with Drip.

When creating your campaign, we recommend selecting the blueprints option and then choose the "Email Sequence + Special Offer" blueprint:

Then you'll set the deadline length and add your first pages. Don't worry too much about those two items - you can come back later and change those at any time.

Once you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, you will be taken to the Quick Start Guide:

Think of this as a To-Do List of all the steps you need to complete in order to set up your funnel.

2. Set up the Drip Integration

After you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, set up the integration between Deadline Funnel and Drip.

This integration determines where you start each subscriber's Deadline Funnel tracking as they are going through your workflow.

Once the integration is up and running, any subscriber who goes through your workflow will start their Deadline Funnel tracking as soon as they reach the "HTTP Post" in your workflow.

That's the first key part for Deadline Funnel tracking - tracking the email address of each subscriber as they go through your automation.

The second critical part for Deadline Funnel tracking is to add Deadline Funnel email links to the emails in your automation, wherever you're linking to a page that has a Deadline Funnel timer or redirect on it.

That would normally be your special offer page, which normally would get redirected to a different page after the deadline expires.

Here's our guide on adding the Deadline Funnel email links to your emails.

Please note that you cannot integrate Deadline Funnel + Drip correctly unless you add the DF links to your emails!

Email timers and dynamic deadline text (optional)

You can customize your Drip emails with an animated timer, or add a dynamic date and time. Step-by-step instructions for adding those can be found in the following articles:

Automated webinars

If you're setting up an evergreen webinar using Drip, Deadline Funnel, and EverWebinar, we have a helpful guide on how to do that here.

While we don't currently have guides for other webinar platforms, you can generally follow the same steps if you're integrating with another webinar platform. And please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!
