Timer Before the Launch of a New Product

Place a countdown timer that shows the time left for these customers to use their coupons. The countdown is sure to encourage your customers to make a purchase on your portal using their promotional coupon.
You held a contest recently and now you are all set to announce its winner. But how about displaying a timer before announcing the winner? When you have a timer on display before you make the name of the winner public, it helps in building and boosting the traffic on your website.

On the whole, it’s a great traffic building stratagem that could even convert some of your visitors into customers.
Timer for VIP Access
