Overview

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]This tool will calculate the amount of time between two dates – useful for calculating the time it takes from one point in the funnel to the next. This is helpful for seeing which section of your funnel needs streamlining, allowing you to see where things are taking longer than they should. For example, you can calculate the number of days between the opt-in and the consult request, and the time between the consult request and purchase.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]
