Below are instructions for integrating a Deadline Funnel Evergreen countdown with a Podia (formerly known as Coach) Sales Page or Course Page.

You need to create your Deadline Funnel campaign before integrating with Podia.

How to Add a Floating Bar to a duplicated Course Sales Page


Important Note:

Podia doesn't load tracking codes when you are logged into Podia. If you're logged into Podia and open your Podia landing or product page in another browser, your Deadline Funnel timer will not appear. Once you log out of Podia, your Deadline Funnel countdowns will appear.


Why we recommend that you duplicate your product in Podia

We recommend not using pre-applied coupons as a way of adding the discount to your product but rather duplicate the product and create a lower-priced version to use with your campaign.

Deadline Funnel displays on your page by checking if the URL of the page you're on matches the URL of the page you've added to your Deadline Funnel campaign.

Podia does not actually display the coupon code in the URL when you visit the page but they apply the coupon and then automatically redirect to a URL that does not include the coupon.

In order for you to integrate Deadline Funnel + Podia, you do need to have a unique URL (that remains in the address bar when you visit the page) both for the "before deadline" URL and the "after deadline" URL.

That's why we recommend duplicating your product in Podia

How to Add a Floating Bar to a duplicated Course Sales Page

In this section, we will cover how to duplicate your course and add the Floating Bar timer to the duplicate.

This will allow you to have a product at the discounted price without using a coupon code, which means you can redirect people to the regular price offer once the deadline expires and there will be no way for them to access the discount at all.

Navigate to your Products in Podia, find the course you want and select 'Duplicate' from the dropdown under '...':

Give your duplicate course a name that will make it easy to identify in your list of products, and make sure 'Duplicate site page' is selected, then click 'Duplicate Product':

Once the course has been duplicated, click 'Edit':

Navigate to 'Pricing' and change the price to the special offer you want your subscribers to have:

Go into 'Settings' next and copy the URL of the duplicated course sales page. Make sure to publish the duplicate course before you leave this section.

Now navigate to Deadline Funnel and put the URL of the duplicated course as your Before the Deadline URL, and the original course as the After the Deadline URL:

Next, click on 'Tracking Code' in the top menu to copy your Deadline Funnel tracking code':

Navigate back to your Podia account, and select Settings from the top navigation:

Scroll down and paste your Deadline Funnel code into the 'Advanced tracking code' box labeled, 'Website tracking code':

Be sure to click 'Save Changes' to save your settings.

And that's it! Now the timer will only appear on the page with the discounted price, and your subscribers will be redirected to the regular priced page once the deadline expires.

Important Note : Podia doesn't load tracking codes when you are logged into Podia. If you're logged into Podia and open your Podia landing or product page in another browser, your Deadline Funnel timer will not appear. Once you log out of Podia, your Deadline Funnel countdowns will appear.
