Email Countdown Timers: A Simple Overview


Adding a countdown timer to your email marketing campaigns is as easy as sending an email. In this piece, we'll talk about email count down timers and show you how to use one in your next email marketing effort. Sendtric's online generator streamlines the process for you and doesn't cost you a dime.


Understanding Countdown Timers in Email


Integrating dynamic content is a rapidly expanding area of email marketing. Email marketers are always on the lookout for new ways to spice up their campaigns. This could be because emails sent without such engagement have shown to have little impact. Incorporating dynamic content, like a countdown timer, into your emails is a great idea. These animated GIF images can be used to promote the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds until a specific event, sale, or deadline.


Countdown timer images used in emails are just pictures at their core (.gif). Because of this, it's clear that email clients are generally compatible with one another. As with all things, there are exceptions. Almost all email services except desktop versions of Outlook support animated GIF images. The first frame of an animated GIF will display correctly in Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013, despite not supporting them in their entirety. The accuracy of the Sendtric timers is ensured by the fact that their initial frame is constantly updated to reflect the correct amount of time remaining in the timer.
