What should I do to enable my Custom Counter to display a number?
That's a good question!
The Custom Counter can display any data, provided that you are allowed to access and use it.
In order to enable your Custom Counter to display a number, you will need to create a JSON URL, which will act as a bridge between the platform hosting the data and the Counter itself. You can find below a plan that explains how the Custom Counter fetch the data you want :
How can I create this JSON URL?

What if I don't have any developer in my team?
If there’s no developer in your team, you can ask for the services of developer from this platform for example: Freelancer
⚠️ The Custom Counter will fetch data from your JSON URL in real time, but the platform you will link your JSON URL to (Youtube, LinkedIn, your own KPI, etc) may not be able to update in real time. If you need more information about that, we suggest you read this article. :)
