If you’re a ConvertKit user then I’ve got big news for you.

(And if you’re not… we have some updates on the way shortly you’re going to love)

The big news is…

Drum roll…

You can connect ConvertKit directly to Deadline Funnel through an API connection.

Previously we’ve had other ways for you to connect Deadline Funnel to your funnel (including Zapier) but this direct connection means you don’t have to be subscribed to Zapier to get all the automation goodness I’ll describe in a bit.

Here’s a video on how it works:

This is probably the most requested feature we’ve heard from ConvertKit users.

Because when you connect Deadline Funnel to your email software you can create a truly “set it and forget it” automation with a powerful sales generating deadline.

And it’s even “plug and play”.

Here’s why:

The way it works is that you’ll go through the simple steps outlined in the video.

And then all you need to do is set up an automation that starts with a subscriber getting a tag.

As soon as they get the tag, ConvertKit will synchronize with Deadline Funnel.

You just need to make sure that you use the Expiring Links in any of the emails where you’ve linked to your sales page.

The reason why this is Plug-n-Play is because now you can use almost any action as a trigger that leads to that subscriber getting a tag… and going into your high converting Deadline Funnel + ConvertKit sequence.

Here are some ideas:

a) Optin -> tag -> subscriber automatically put in deadline sequence

b) Subscriber clicks a link -> tag -> automatically put in deadline sequence

c) Subscriber completes a sequence -> tag -> automatically put in deadline sequence

d) Another tag is removed -> tag -> automatically put in deadline sequence

With just those options above you can mix and match your way to some pretty wicked automations.

Enjoy the new ConvertKit API connection with Deadline Funnel…

And know that we’re constantly working on make YOU the most effective marketer you can be.

PS – If we get 10 mentions of this new feature on Twitter I’ll do a follow up blog post with a downloadable funnel map.
