The countdown clock is an animated GIF image that dynamically generated by the server in real-time, each and every time the image is requested (ie. when a subscriber opens the email). So if a recipient opens the email a daily basis (or even every second), they’ll see an updated image each time. GIF images are supported in all email clients including mobile, wherever images are enabled. The exception to this is Desktop Outlook 2007+, which will show only a static image of the timer. However, this image will be accurate at the time the user opens the email. Here is the client support:
|Client||Displays Image||Counts down|
* Displays first frame of animated GIF only.
Countdown Timer displays perfectly in your mobile-friendly version of the email. So have fun designing emails enhanced with countdown timers that look great across all devices!
Feed in the date, time and time zone when the timer must end.
Create your very own customized countdown timer that matches your email design by defining the dimensions, background color, and font color.
Copy embed source code that is generated like this:
<img src="http://i.countdownmail.com/td.gif" alt="countdownmail.com" />
And insert into the HTML content at the desired place of your email.
