Add a Countdown Timer to your Email
How it works?
Countdown timers in email is a animated .gif files which 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 subscriber opens the email above 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. Here is the client support:
|Client||Displays Image||Counts down|
|Lotus Notes (6, 7, 8.5)||YES||YES|
|Outlook for Mac||YES||YES|
|Windows 10 Mail||YES||YES|
|Android (Gmail IMAP)||YES||YES|
* Displays first frame of animated GIF only.
