You can do multiple customizations for the text like update the font style/size/color etc.
Step4: Click on the timer icon.And now, here we will do the customizations for the timer stuff.
1: You can select the type of timer it has to be like :
A cookie based timer.
A Date and time based timer.
Or an Evergreen timer.
2: Select the End date and time of the timer.
3: Zone of the time.
4: When the timer expires what has to be done. There are 3 options for that:
Hide the timer.
Redirect to some other page.In this case, you have to pass the URL in the next field.
Show static central time as 00:00.
Step5: Click on the “Style” icon. Here you will do the styling for the timer like the size of fonts, color of the fonts,label of the fonts and others.
Step6: Click on the “Trigger” button. Here you have to configure, on which all url(s)/domain(s) in your website,you want to enable or disable the campaign.
You can add or remove any number of URL(s)/Domain(s) by using the Add or Remove option.
You will notice that, for each of the Include and Exclude fields you have 2 options to pass the url(s)/domain(s).
1:Contains: Assume on your website, for each url you have multiple sub-url(s) and you want to enable/disable this campaign on a url along with all its sub-url(s).In this case, under Include/Exclude, you will use the Contains option and just parent the parent url. This will automatically enable/disable the campaign on the URL along with all its sub-url(s).
1:Exact: Assume on your website, for each url you have multiple sub-url(s) and you want to disable this campaign for some of the url(s) but also want to keep it enable on some of the url/sub-url(s).In this case, under Include/Exclude, you will use the Exact option and and do your choices accordingly.
Once you have added the URL(s)/Domain(s), click on the Save button. You will get a code-string that has to be pasted in the website code,based on the position where you want to keep the central timer.
Once you copied the code to your website, give a pat on your back because your campaign is live now.
