Kickdynamic- Countdown Timer Best Practice
A countdown timer is a great addition to an email campaign, particularly if the objective is to drive urgency, encourage engagement and drive conversions.
There’s many ways to use a countdown timer in email. Perhaps there’s a big sale you’d like to countdown to, or an in-store event. Maybe a particular product or offer has a limited availability and you’d like to use a countdown to show the time remaining until the offer ends. However you chose to use a timer, use our handy dos and don’ts to make sure your timer packs a punch and has maximum impact.
Simply set an end time/date and the countdown timer will accurately display the time remaining every time the email is opened. Simply create a timer Tag in the Kickdynamic platform and add it into the html where you wish the timer to display. When the email is opened, the timer (with the exact amount of timer remaining at that point) will be served in the email as an animated gif.
Timers can be fully customized with background images, colors, styles and fonts in the Kickdynamic platform.
