Deadline Funnel automatically sets a custom purchase deadline for each subscriber, regardless of when they subscribe to your email list.

Example: a customer registered on the list on Monday will then have 5 days (until Saturday) to expire. Another customer registered on Tuesday will have until Sunday to expire.

A "live launch" campaign is recommended when you want to set the same sales deadline for all prospects.

It is effective for promotions focused on a specific date, such as a new product launch or event.

Example: Saturday is the last day of the sale. In that case, you can launch an offer that allows all prospects who joined the email list on Monday and those who joined on Friday to purchase until the same Saturday.

A "tripwire" campaign allows you to present a special offer that can only be purchased for a short period of time (a few minutes) after a prospect registers for an email on your landing page.

For example, "Special price 980 yen for 15 minutes from now only!" You can sell the front end with a short term offer such as

Example: after subscribing to an email list, a customer has 15 minutes to purchase a special offer.

With an "upsell" campaign, another special offer is presented with a short deadline (a few minutes) immediately after the customer has purchased the product. This can encourage additional purchases and increase profits.

E.g., a customer who has purchased a product can be asked, "Would you like one of these too?" and additional products can be sold to encourage purchase with a 15-minute validity period.

A "custom" campaign is a flexible option for special needs that do not fit into the above categories. You are free to customize and create your own campaign.

It may be a little confusing, but many people

  • Evergreen
  • Live Launch

After setting up, click the "NEXT" button

Deadline Funnel offers a variety of plans.

My recommended plan isCreate Plan.

The Create plan is available for $99/month and includes all the deadline management features that make Deadline Funnel so appealing.

This plan allows you to create an unlimited number of campaigns, with the flexibility to change colors and settings.

The Start plan is cheaper, but I would not recommend it.The functionality is quite limited.

There is no advantage to using the Start plan; the Create plan is recommended.

Benefits of Deadline Funnel

The benefits of integrating Deadline Funnel into your marketing are enormous.

Advantage 1: Timer tracks time accurately

What are the biggest advantages of using Deadline Funnel?Timer should track time accurately.It is.

The expiration date you set is accurate. The countdown timer will appear as shown in the following image when installed.

The prospect realizes that the expiration date for his or her purchase is approaching and acts hastily to make the purchase.

For example, a countdown timer indicating the time until the end of the promotion can be installed to put pressure on the prospective customer to meet the deadline.

In addition, the timer updates in real time, so it always shows the exact time, even if the customer refreshes the page. The timer will not reset.

Deadline Funnel timers can accurately track time and indicate expiration dates. This maximizes the impact on the prospect's buying behavior.

This feature is very powerful in marketing campaigns and is a major benefit of using Deadline Funnel.

Advantage 2: Easy to use! Easy to install!

Deadline Funnel is an English-speaking tool but very easy to use. Not only for intermediate and advanced users proficient in marketing, but also for beginners.

Disadvantages of Deadline Funnel

Deadline Funnel is a one-of-a-kind tool. 

You can do something similar with WordPress. However, it is not as powerful as Deadline Funnel.

However, there are some disadvantages.

Start plan is $49/month but has limited features

First.The price is not for beginners.

The cheapest plan is the Start plan. It costs $49 per month. At the current dollar-yen rate, it would be about 7,200 yen per month.

Here is a table of Deadline Funnel's pricing plans. The Starter plan is the cheapest of them all. It is only $49.

Wouldn't it be cheaper if it was around 7,200 yen a month?"

You may feel that way. However, this plan allows you to create up to 3 campaigns and includes up to 1000 new registrants.

However, the features of this plan are quite limited.

Design customization and some features are not available with the Start plan.

To actually customize and embed it in your own sales page, as I have explained in this articleYou must subscribe to the Create plan for a minimum of $99/month.

Is Deadline Funnel expensive? Why it is actually quite cheap

How do you really feel after reading this far?

Deadline Funnel...I heard that some famous marketers use it, but it's expensive..." But it's very expensive..."

The yen is weak. Even the cheapest plan costs about 7,200 yen per month. It is understandable that you may feel it is a little expensive.

The more such a person,We invite you to try Deadline Funnel for free.

If you are selling a $10,000 online course, one sale with Deadline Funnel is enough to pay for itself.

[To put it bluntly...] What is the difference between this and other countdown timer tools?

 Deadline Funnel is well known. However, those who want to save a little more money... will look for an alternative tool to Deadline Funnel.

However, a cheesy countdown timer is counterproductive.

Deadline Funnel compared to other countdown timer tools

Discerning website visitors are suspicious of such time-limited countdown timers, saying, "This countdown timer is probably a lie anyway.

Many countdown timers reset the timer when you refresh the page. All visitors know this.

People are skeptical of any mention of "limited time only.

The slightly more tech-savvy among you will know that if you turn off the cookies on the page, the countdown timer will be restored.

Many countdown timer tools do just that.

To be clear, there are plenty of countdown timer tools that can be circumvented by making a few changes. There are a lot of loopholes.

However, one of Deadline Funnel's unique features is its "powerful countdown function.

  • Even if you refresh the page
  • Even if you delete cookies,
  • Even if you open the page from another phone,

Deadline Funnel timers will not be restored.

In other words, there is no complete tool that can replace this Deadline Funnel.

Email Marketers

The newsletter is wacky."

As of 2024, many businesses are still using email marketing to generate millions of dollars in sales without changing.

However, it is also true that the response has been poor.

  • Emails are not opened when sent.
  • Opened but not purchased
  • Sales are not increasing.

Deadline Funnel can be of great help to these people as well. Deadline Funnel's countdown timer can also be placed in outgoing emails.

In other words, the countdown is tracked in the email. This is expected to greatly improve conversion rates.
