The countdown timer—what is it?

A countdown timer is used to create a sense of urgency and to persuade a customer to take immediate action. By giving the impression of scarcity and setting a deadline for your customers, they’re more likely to take action.

You’ve seen countdown timers used in marketing schemes before, maybe without even realizing it. They appear on landing pages and websites during sales or events and are often used on television (like shopping networks). Countdown timers are typically placed front and center but are often quite subtle.

Time-based scarcity as a method of marketing psychology is incredibly effective. By adding countdown timers to your email marketing strategy, you’ll instill a sense of urgency and scarcity (FOMO) through highly targeted content, delivered directly to your ideal customer.
