09A005 – Setting up Auto Deadline Countdown timer on your Pages

This article will help you set up your Auto Deadline Booster on any of your Pages.

HOW IT ALL WORKS:

  • After you have created your Auto Deadline Booster and registered members to it, you need to add this booster to one of one of your Pages.
  • You will need to provide them with a URL that will link them to the Auto Deadline Booster and it will be unique for each member when they access the page after registration.
  • The way this will work for them is: if today is before the deadline, then they will be able to watch the video and engage with the page. If today is after the deadline, then we will redirect them to the URL selected for the Redirect page.

 

Here is what you need to do:
  • Go to Campaigns, then select the relevant campaign and then open the page template you would like to edit.
  • Once opened, click on the Countdown Timer Block in the preview pane on the right.
  • This will open the Countdown Timer’s settings in the left-sidebar menu.
  • Once opened, select Auto Deadline from the Countdown Timer Type: drop-down menu, in order to access the Auto Deadline settings.
  • Select Widget
    From the drop-down just below the Timer options, select the Auto Deadline widget that you created.
  • Redirect
    By default, it is disabled. Simply switch the toggle on if you want to set up a redirect page.
    From the drop-down, select the page you would like users to reach after the timer counts down to zero.
    TIP! If you prefer to use a URL , scroll to the bottom of the drop-down menu and select Redirect to URL, then add the relevant URL in the field provided.
  • Optional: Pass URL parameters to next URL
    This feature allows you to pass tracking tags or data parameters from one page URL to another. Enable this feature if you are applying tracking tags to your URL or using certain features that require data to be passed on in order to work e.g. Auto Deadlines, Webinars, Viral Share tool, etc.
  • Action on redirect
    Simply switch the toggle on if you want to perform an action on redirect.
    Select which action you would like to be applied when users are redirected.

    Apply a Tag
    If you want apply a specific tag to users who land on this page, simply select the Email System you are using (if supported) and the relevant tag you would like to add.+ Send to webhook
    If your email system is not listed or you want to do something special, you can always select the Send to Webhook option. Simply use a service like Zapier.com and connect with your system of choice.
  • Use this link to access page:
    Under the Use This Link field, we have provided a special link you can email your registered Users to access your Sales page.
    IMPORTANT! You will have to replace the XXX with the contact email. Your email service will likely have a little piece of code that you can add here, and then they will be able to add the email to the link dynamically.

  • When a person accesses your sales page, we are going to check their email to confirm if they have been registered for the Auto Deadline Timer.  If they have, then we will check the deadline set for the timer.
  • Also note that if you’re using a email service that does not using “contactEmail” as a dynamic/merge field, you can also use “contactemail” in the URL and it will work the same way.

Once you are done, click SAVE.
