Evergreen Countdown Timer
People like to procrastinate. That’s why they respond so well when there is a set deadline to make a purchase.
If they know they only have a certain amount of days to buy before the product or service window closes, they’re more likely to purchase. Whereas if there was no deadline, they’d be more likely to hold off, and they’d probably never buy.
That’s where an evergreen countdown timer comes in.
This type of timer will start from the first time a visitor goes to your page. The timer will track them with cookies and/or IP address so that whenever they go back to the page, the timer will pick up where it left off.
Here are two of our favorite evergreen countdown timers:
- Deadline funnel (works great with Clickfunnels software)
- Countdown Monkey
