Countdown

Using a countdown clock will help you to create a sense of urgency in campaigns with a time-limited opportunity to purchase a product at a specific price.

In this article, you'll learn how to create a countdown. 

  

Objective: Conversion.
Difficulty: Beginner.
When to use it: In campaigns with an end date such as Black Friday, sales, Christmas, etc.

  

This strategy is part of our pool of templates. To implement it in your account, access your Connectif account and go to “Workflows Create new workflow”. In the Create from template section, enter the name of the workflow in the search engine (Countdown) then click Select and Create.

How it works

To show this countdown, we are going to configure a workflow with floating bar web content that appears three seconds after the contact enters the website and does not appear again until a day later.
