Countdown pop-ups

Hosting an event? Upcoming webinar? Something special to celebrate? Limited offer?

Inform your website visitors with a special countdown pop-up.

To create a new countdown pop-up, head to Forms and then click the tab Promotions. Click Create promotion.

After giving it a name, you can choose the Countdown pop-up template.

You can change the placement, for example left/right corner or as a bar at the bottom or on top. The normal type displays the countdown pop-up in the middle of the screen.

With the design settings, you can change the colors, fonts, sizes and other design elements.

Then you can set the date to which the timer counts down too and install what should be set underneath each timer element (in case your language for days, hours and minutes is not English).

To edit the button area, you need to click on the button on the upper right. Then you can edit your button, for example set where the click should redirect to.

Once saved, you can set the behaviour in the next screen. Choose things like the mode, frequency, schedule and visibility. For the countdown, you want to set the frequency to "always" as it's a countdown. For the schedule, you want to set the date on the day your offer ends.

In the next screen, you can copy the Javascript code or use an integration to insert the countdown pop-up on your website.

In the overview screen you can check the information and activate the pop-up. Here you'll see the code again. You only need this code once on your website. You'll most likely not use the Show promotion on click event feature for this pop-up, it's just there in case you do need it.
