What You Need to Know About Email Countdown Timers

One of the fastest-growing subsets of email marketing is the incorporation of dynamic content. In an arena where most messages have been static in the past, email marketers are eager to try anything that can breathe new life into their campaigns. Using a countdown timer in your emails is a great way to incorporate dynamic content. You can use these animated GIF images to count down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until whatever event, sale, or deadline you want to promote.

Email countdown timers are, at their most fundamental, images (.gif). This indicates that there is robust compatibility between email clients. Virtually all email clients support animated GIF images, with the exception of desktop versions of Outlook. Despite not fully supporting them, Outlook 2007, 2010, and 2013 will display the first frame of an animated GIF correctly. Because the Sendtric timers’ initial frame is always set to the proper amount of time left for the timer, this means that they will continue to be accurate.

Benefits of Using Email Countdown Timers

Using a countdown timer in an email is a great way to increase click-through rates and user engagement by creating a sense of urgency.
