Couple of weeks ago, we released a new element called ‘Countdown’ in our Landing Page Builder.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you can refer to this post.
Since then, we have received some feedback from our members.
Today I want to update you on 2 improvements to the Countdown Element.
1) Resizable Flip Countdown
Previously only Basic Countdown is resizable. Now the cool animated Flip Countdown can also be resized, but it is a ‘cheat’.
What I mean is, you can resize it, but it will automatically approximate to one of the three standard sizes as shown below:
There is no way to make it fully resizable due to the animation requirement. But we reckon that these 3 sizes should be enough for most designs.
2) Countdown From Fixed End Time
Previously you can only countdown from a certain time. Say if you set a 3-minute countdown, everyone who goes to your page will experience 3 minutes of countdown.
Now you can set the countdown based on a ‘Fixed End Time’.
Say you have an offer or webinar that ends on a certain date and time, you can set that time as the End Time. The countdown timer will automatically calculate and show the remaining time to the visitors.
Here is how the two settings look like:
You can toggle between ‘page load’ and ‘fixed time’ and set the time accordingly.
If you use the Fixed Time option, be sure to enter a URL (see arrow below), preferably an opt-in page, so that visitors who are late for the offer or webinar can opt-in and be notified of the next offer/webinar.
