Countdown Block

Description

Evergreen Countdown Timer

Evergreen timer means all visitors get the same time frame, regardless of when they enter the page. It means if,
– User A visits the page today, he sees a countdown of 2 hours.
– User B visits two weeks later, she still sees a countdown of 2 hours.

A cookie is set in the visitor’s browser once he lands on the page with the countdown. If the visitor lands on the page next time, the timer will continue from the same time the visitor first landed on the page.

This is the best way to create or increase urgency when promoting sales, events, or other time-limited offers or discounts.

Fixed Countdown Timer

Fixed timer is designed to promote offers or an event on a specific day. You can use the fixed timer to draw attention of your audience to your upcoming events. Or build a coming soon page with fixed timer to let your visitors know when the time left to launch the site or product. Or use it for your Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Christmas, or New Year offers.

Actions When Countdown Ends

You can simply set a custom action to run once the timer reaches zero.

  • Hide the countdown timer
  • Set a custom page or URL to redirect your visitors
  • Show a message
