➡️ Please visit our guide for more details about how to create a campaign in Deadline Funnel.
2. Add the Deadline timer to your campaign pages
For your timers to appear on your offer pages, we need to put a piece of code on those pages.
In the top menu of your Deadline Funnel account, click on Tracking Code and click the Copy button. See the first screenshot below.
After you've copied the code you'll need to paste it into your webpage builder so it can track visitors and show your deadline timer.
➡️ Please visit our guide on adding the tracking code to your site to see page builder-specific instructions.
3. Integrate Mailchimp with Deadline Funnel
To integrate Mailchimp with your Deadline Funnel campaign, you'll need to:
Connect your Mailchimp account to your Deadline Funnel account
Put a webhook into your Mailchimp automation
This will allow you to trigger a unique deadline for each subscriber in Mailchimp.
For more explanation of why the webhook is important, watch this video:
➡️ Please visit our guide for more details about how to trigger the deadline in Mailchimp.
4. Add Deadline Funnel email links to your automation emails
Copy the Deadline Funnel email link from the Emails section of your campaign:
Use this link in your emails anywhere that you are linking to your offer page, instead of the offer page's URL.
Now, when someone clicks on the Deadline Funnel email link, Deadline Funnel will look up that subscriber's email address and automatically redirect them to the correct page with the right timer.
