I recently received an email that had a real-time countdown that incorporated a GIF and query that fed back from the host company (RealTime Email). It seemed pretty sleek, and was curious to know if there were any LaunchPoint company's that offered similar services like RealTime? For anyone that is curious, this was the image:

This would be great for campaigns that involve events or early bird countdowns that are not just a static and looping GIF but reflect back in real time. Curious to know if anyone has ever found or encountered a solution to this in Marketo.

They have a free option of 20,000 impressions per month with a watermark, but also much cheaper options than RealTime for more impressions and removing the watermark. Here is an example counting down to the Marketo summit:
