Is there an online tool that does this?

In my email funnels, I'd like to offer users limited time discounts on my products.

What I'd like to do is have a link in my Autoresponder email for the discount.

Once they click the link, they are taken to a custom page with a countdown type of discount page that's unique for them. I would be able to set the time and discount.

When the time is up, that unique page goes away for them.

Are there any recommended online tools that can do something like this?

    If you have some programming experience, I suggest exploring if your email service provider provides an API (like Mailchimp for example). Otherwise, you'll need to hire a programmer to do a custom solution for you.

    Basically, you can program your own autoresponder using CRONs, simple SQL database and a few PHP scripts calling API endpoints, without having to depend solely on pre-made functions. This allows for a high degree of customization with your email marketing campaigns but it takes a bit of work, of course.

    I'm not aware of any pre-made software solutions.

    Edit: Alternatively, if you know how to insert subscriber-specific variables to your emails (so you can put a unique URL for each subscriber) through your control panel, then all you really need is some simple programming on the landing page which communicates to the database, making sure that the offer is still valid.

    Let me know if you need any help,

    Are you looking to have the timer start as soon as they visit the page? If so, that can easily be done with some simple coding... It would not have to be that complex. A good programmer should be able to do it for about $50 - $75, depending on their own rate schedule.

    If you're looking for something that needs to start the timer at the time the email was sent out, that WOULD involve API integration, however, if going based on the time the email was sent, all emails would get sent roughly at at the same time so it really would be the same time for all subscribers, which, would, in turn, NOT be too complicated.

    In all actuality, it all depends on exactly how you want it to work. Could you provide a little more insight into the exacts of how you want it to work?

    If you do not wish to offer all the details publicly, please feel free to send me a PM with as much detail as you care to share and I'd be happy to discuss this further with you.

    I have seen similar things like this online at places like AdoreMe. I have never used a counter or countdown system but you can try looking into what AdoreMe used to use. Not sure if they still do. For first time sign ups they had deals last 24 hours.

    Yeah, you can also do that using with their marketing popups and timers... you can set a page to expire, close, redirect to a different page etc. a certain amount of time after a someone clicks on a link to it.
