Countdown Timers

Get ’em before they’re gone.

With countdown timers you can highlight how long is left until the end of a sale or the deadline for a delivery day. You’ll provide a helpful dose of urgency to your visitors and help persuade more to get it before it’s too late.



How It Works.

Countdown timers can be triggered to show in a number of ways:


Time Based

When a visitor first lands on the page or has become inactive for a period.


Exit Intent

When a visitor takes the cursor outside the window to close the browser.


Click Trigger

When the visitor has clicked on a certain button or link within the page.

Display Options.

Here are the different ways our countdown timers are positioned:


Messages are displayed in a way that increases urgency without interrupting the visitor.

Allow the visitor to continue to interact with the site.

Stick to a location of the screen.

Integrate messages into different areas of the page.

Side Panel

Taking over one side of the screen is a sure way to get your message seen.

Trigger on idle time.

Use the full panel or more subtle inserts.

Left or right side can be used.


Grab their attention with the classic front and center overlay.

Perfect to capture attention on exit intent.

Page is still viewable underneath.

Multiple CTAs can be used in one overlay.


Make an impact with a full-screen takeover message.

Trigger when exit intent is shown.

Focus the visitors attention.

Visitor must interact with the message.
