Deadline Funnel can help boost your sales for your marketing campaigns in Infusionsoft! 😎
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 + Infusionsoft, so you can build your evergreen funnel.
Important Note: These instructions can also be applied to Keap.

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 Infusionsoft.
When creating your campaign, we recommend choosing the "Email Sequence + Special Offer" blueprint:
Next click on the Integrate button to connect your Infusionsoft account with Deadline Funnel:
Now login to your Infusionsoft (Keap) Account:
Then click "Allow" to let Deadline Funnel integrate with your Infusionsoft account:
On the next screen you'll need to select the group/tag 'Custom Fields'. Then you'll need to create a Custom Field - We call this the 'deadline text' field, and it's just a field in Infusionsoft that stores each contact's unique deadline.
The good news is that you can create that field from Deadline Funnel while you're setting up the integration.
Go ahead and name it 'deadlinetext' if you're not sure what to call it. You can always change it later:
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, where you can verify that the correct trigger has been selected:
Now you can follow the steps below to integrate with Infusionsoft.

2. Set up the Infusionsoft integration
After you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, set up the integration between Deadline Funnel and Infusionsoft.
This integration determines where you start each subscriber's Deadline Funnel tracking as they are going through your sequence.
3. Add Deadline Funnel email links to your sequence
Once the integration is up and running, any subscriber who goes through your sequence will start their Deadline Funnel tracking as soon as they reach the "HTTP post" in your sequence.
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.
Please note that you cannot integrate Deadline Funnel + Infusionsoft correctly unless you add the DF links to your emails!
Email timers and dynamic deadline text (optional)
You can customize your Infusionsoft 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:
- Add an animated countdown timer to your emails (New Editor)

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!
