The countdown widget editor offers plenty of customization choices to create an HTML timer appropriate for any case or design.

You’re also free to set the animation type for the numbers in the countdown clock – fade, slide, or flip.
The widget format also varies – it may be a descending or ascending clock or number counter. Marketers claim that the situation when the countdown timer is over and the clock shows zeros should be avoided, as it may cause irritation among the audience and lower customer loyalty. That’s why you should decide what scenario to set in a template after the timer runs out: displaying a pre-made or your custom message for users or redirection to a particular web page.
The final step to launch your HTML countdown timer is to add the installation code to your website. Simply press ‘Add to website’, copy the code that appears in the popup, and paste it right to the site’s code or in the custom HTML section on a chosen page or website template where you want the clock to be displayed. Depending on a template and your needs, the timer widget may be added to your website as a static header or floating banner on the upper or lower side of the screen, or embedded in any position of your content zone. Also, you can simply share it via the link if you don’t have a website.
The primary purpose of a countdown timer is to make a way of anticipation or urgency among the audience for some special event. Additionally, businesses conjointly use HTML ecommerce templates to convey a sense of time running out to stimulate sales during special promotion periods or holiday sales. Countdown timer also permits the audience to learn what time is left until something starts or ends – be it a buying deal or special promotion, concert or festival, business summit or conference.
Another way to use a countdown widget is to indicate that you are running out of items in stock. This may seem to be a strange plan to some people, however if you launch such a counter to highlight that some things or event tickets are scarce, they will tend to be more desirable by the audience than something else that is in abundance or simply obtainable.
