A use case of an animated number counter.

Welcome to Paddle Creative's guide on enhancing your Webflow site with an animated number counter effect. Here, we’ll walk you through the ways you can elevate the user experience by incorporating dynamic elements that captivate your audience as they navigate through your site.

What is an Animated Number Counter?

Before we get into the how-to-guide, we need to take the time to establish what an animated number counter is. An animated number counter is a visually engaging effect that comes to life when a user lands on a specific section of your website, it can be used to show stats, like our example above. It animates the numbers and brings them to life, adding a vibrant touch to your site and making it more dynamic and visually appealing to your visitors. There are numerous ways you can embed this element so whether you want to highlight important milestones, showcase achievements, or display real-time data, this element is the way to go.

Take a look at the graphic below - that is an example of an animated number counter! 

How to Implement the Effect on Your Webflow Site

Although this is not yet achievable in a 100% no-code format, fear not! Paddle Creative is here to provide you with the necessary Javascript and easy-to-follow steps so you can easily integrate this feature into your Webflow site. 

Step 1: Add the Code to the </Body> Page

First things first, highlight the code below and copy it to your clipboard. Then go over to your Webflow project in Editor Mode and paste the code into the "Before </body> tag" of the relevant page in your Webflow website.

Code to copy:

<script defer src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/waypoints/4.0.0/jquery.waypoints.min.js"></script>
<script defer src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/jquery.counterup@2.1.0/jquery.counterup.min.js"></script>
<script>
jQuery(document).ready(function( $ ) {
  $('.counterup').counterUp({
    delay: 100, // the delay time in ms
    time: 2000 // the speed time in ms
  });
});
</script>

With this code in place, you're on your way to enhancing your Webflow site with an animated number counter, making your Webflow website more exciting and enticing to your website visitors. 

Step 2: Create a CSS Class

Next, you need to create a CSS class named "counterup" and assign it to the HTML element of your choice. This HTML element can be something like a text block or paragraph within your project. This class will ensure that the animated number counter effect is applied to the designated content on your Webflow site.

Step 3: Publish Your Site

Once you've added the CSS class and integrated the Javascript code, it's time to publish your site and experience the effect live! Remember, the Javascript code functions optimally when the site is published, allowing you to fully appreciate the dynamic and engaging animated number counter on your Webflow site.

Conclusion

By following these three simple steps, you can seamlessly integrate an animated number counter into your Webflow site and elevate your website's user experience, making it more dynamic and engaging for your audience.
