How to Integrate Deadline Funnel with ConvertKit (API)
The API integration with ConvertKit is the easiest and most flexible way to integrate Deadline Funnel with your ConvertKit account.
Here's a quick video of how to get started:
1. Integrate Deadline Funnel with your ConvertKit account
Before you begin, you should have already created:
1. The evergreen Deadline Funnel countdown you want to use
2. The tag in ConvertKit that should trigger your webhook
On the next page it's going to ask you for two API keys from ConvertKit:
You'll find both keys under the Account tab in ConvertKit:
Copy and paste the corresponding keys into Deadline Funnel, then hit Save.
2. Create a custom field to store each contact's deadline
3. Select the tag you will use to trigger the deadline
4. Set up a rule in ConvertKit
Now all you need to do is set up the rule in Convertkit that will tell Deadline Funnel to start the deadline:
You have a few options for how to trigger the tag being added, but in this example we're using "Subscribes to a form". So now once someone subscribes to that form, ConvertKit will apply the tag, and the tag will tell Deadline Funnel to start the countdown.
ConvertKit Automations don't work based on manual actions and they do not work retroactively.
Note: If you want to integrate several different funnels with ConvertKit, you will simply repeat these steps and create a new API integration and tag for each countdown, as well as separate automations. This creates a system where Tag A triggers Campaign A, while Tag B triggers Campaign B.
5. Test your integration
