Create Urgency In Your Emails By Adding A Countdown Timer

I’ve been using the Aweber autoresponder for more than 10 years now and in the last year, they’ve really been upping their game by adding new and useful features to their platform.

Adding a countdown timer into an email has always been problematical.

But there are 3rd-party services out there that will let you add timers into HTML emails.

Some offer free plans, some paid.

Some services that offer free timers only let you create one or you’re stuck with only one design.

Countdown timers are often used on landing pages to to create a sense of urgency and to encourage your people to take action before they miss out.

While the video below shows you how to add a countdown timer from Sendtric into an Aweber email, the process would be very similar where other autoresponder services are concerned.

You can also add a countdown timer to your your landing pages built in AWeber using the same steps.

There are other countdown timer services you can use.

Here’s a list of the best:

Sendtric Free Freemium entry plan. Limited designs
Countdown Mail Free  Freemium entry plan. Terrible UI
