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:
When a visitor first lands on the page or has become inactive for a period.
When a visitor takes the cursor outside the window to close the browser.
When the visitor has clicked on a certain button or link within the page.
Here are the different ways our countdown timers are positioned:
- Notification Subtle prompts that don't interrupt the visitor.
- Side Panel Display a full panel on one side of the screen.
- Header / Footer Banners stick to the top or bottom of screen.
- Overlay The traditional front and center overlay.
- Takeover Make an impact with a full screen takeover.
Messages are displayed in a way that increases urgency without interrupting the visitor.
Taking over one side of the screen is a sure way to get your message seen.
Grab their attention with the classic front and center overlay.
Make an impact with a full-screen takeover message.

Whether you're a reader, watcher or just prefer the visuals - we've got you covered.
01 Will visitors see more than one message?
This is up to you. Your campaign can be set up with rules that only allow one message to be displayed within certain time periods or online sessions.
Or you could show different types of messages at different stages to help guide the visitor through their journey online.
02 Do these work on mobiles too?
They certainly do! SaleCycle treats each device type differently and designs accordingly. Depending on the device your visitors are on, we can show different messages too.
03 Will our visitors mind?
… It’s our favourite question to answer. Its all about influencing, not interrupting the customer journey. The relevancy and customer service approach to the messages that we recommend ensure the visitors respond really positively.
