Deadline-Funnels

Deadline-funnels are a great way to boost sales and business growth, and now you can create them in Simplero! 

What's a Deadline-Funnel and How Does it Work?

The idea is you make an offer that, for example, is only available for 48 hours after people opt-in, and your emails and landing pages include a countdown timer to that point in time, to add urgency to the decision.

An example of a Deadline-funnel setup would be:

  1. Have a List signup that sends an autoresponse
  2. The Autoresponse has a countdown and a link to a landing page
  3. The landing page has a countdown and a link to the product order form with a secret price

Your core feature to set up a deadline funnel is the Countdown timer.

Setting up a Deadline-Funnel Using a List Sign-Up Model

  1. Create your list and Auto-response including a Countdown timer:

  2. Setup your countdown. In the example below, the countdown will run until two days after the user signs up to this list:

  3. Create a landing page and include a countdown timer section:

  4. Setup the same time period and customize an end countdown message too!

  5.  Add a link to the product secret price:

  6. Include the link to this landing page in the list Auto-response:


Other Setup Examples

  • Products >> lead to a deadline-offer via an auto-response sent right after purchase.

  • Automations >> instead of using the Auto-responses tab, fire an automation with purchase/subscription triggers.

    In the automation, include an email with the countdown feature and the link to the landing page with the countdown section!

  • Broadcasts >> insert a countdown on your broadcast as well as the link to the landing page. Make sure your recipients are either list subscribers or participants of a product.
