Getting Started

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

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 + Klaviyo, 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 Klaviyo.

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

Then you'll set the deadline length and add the URL(s) for your first page(s). Don't worry too much about those two items - you can change those at any time.

Once you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, you will be taken to the Quick Start Guide, which is a step by step guide for how to set up your campaign.

2. Integrating Deadline Funnel with your Klaviyo emails

After you've created your Deadline Funnel campaign, you'll need to set up the integration between Deadline Funnel, Zapier, and Klaviyo (This doc uses Kajabi as an example but the basic steps are the same)

This integration determines where you start each subscriber's Deadline Funnel tracking as they are going through your automation. This a key step when you're using the deadline in your Klaviyo emails, as it's what allows us to track each subscriber's email address, which in turn allows us to keep their deadline synced up with your email sequence.

Important Note:

Our article covers how you can trigger it based on when a new subscriber is added to your list, but with Klaviyo you can only use a 'New Event' trigger. This means that you need to set up a filter step in your Zap that only allows the Zap to start the deadline if the New Event in Klaviyo meets specific conditions.

The best option we've found is to trigger it based on your subscribers receiving a specific email. To make that work, you would set up your Zap to trigger with a New Event in Klaviyo, then create a filter to check that the new event is 'Received Email':

Set the Condition to 'Text Contains':

And for the Value you'll select the subject of the email you want to use:

Once you have this in place, Zapier will know to check if the New Event that happens is your subscriber receiving a specific email, and will either trigger a new deadline for your subscriber or ignore it if the event is unrelated.

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 on it, or any page you have set up to redirect 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 + Klaviyo correctly unless you add the DF links to your emails!

Email timers (optional):

You can customize your Klaviyo emails with an animated timer. Step-by-step instructions for adding those can be found here.

Automated webinars
