How to Use a Custom URL
Custom URLs are used with Expiring URLs, Email Links, and Animated Email Countdowns.
You can choose from one of the default custom URLs included with Deadline Funnel or create a custom URL using one of your own sub-domains.
How to Set a Custom URL:
To set the Custom URL that is active for your Expiring URLs, Email Links, and Animated Countdowns, go to My account >> Set Custom URL. Select the Custom URL you want to use and press Save.
NOTE: After you save your new custom URL, you'll need to update the email timer code (found under Edit your campaign >> Email Setup >> HTML Image Code) in your emails to reflect the new URL. You'll also need to update your expiring links used on pages or in emails.
How to Create a Custom URL using a Sub-Domain:
- To add a Custom URL based on one of your domains, go to My account >> My Custom URLs. Click 'Create a New Custom URL', enter your own sub-domain URL, and press 'Add New URL':
- In order for the custom URL to work (e.g., http://demo.allegraloves.com, you will need to set up the CNAME for your sub-domain in your DNS manager, with the CNAME pointing to deadlinefunnel.com. Watch the video for step-by-step instructions for creating and pointing the CNAME.
- Once this is set up you will be able to select your new custom URL from the drop-down under My Account >> Set Custom URL:
NOTE: To test this, clear your tracking and visit your expiring link, to check that you land on the 'before' URL you specified in your Deadline Funnel campaign.
