Overview

This element allows you to have a countdown timer on your page. This is a great tool for your sales page to incentivize visitors to buy or to take an action, like opting in to your email form.

Page blocks that include the timer element can be found in the "Timers" section of the page blocks library:

Countdown Timer Modes

The Countdown Timer element has 2 modes you can choose from:

Mode 1: The Evergreen Countdown Timer 

This mode allows you to set an exact number of minutes/hours/days which the timer will count down from for each visitor who visits your page individually. So the timer starts to count down once a visitor lands on your page.

It continues to work for the visitor even if they refresh the page during the same browsing session. However, if a new browsing session is started the countdown timer will reset when the page is visited again by the same visitor.

  • You can select the timer time from a list of predefined times (24 hours, 12 hours, 6 hours and 1 hour) or you can set an exact Custom time. 

  • You can also adjust the Color and Size of the countdown timer. 

Mode 2: Countdown to Specific Date

This mode counts down the time to a specific date that you set. So, the time remaining will be the same for all visitors that land on the page. 

  • Select the Year, Month, Day and Time of day that you want the countdown timer to count down to. 

  • You can also adjust the Color and Size of the countdown timer.

Options for when the Timer Runs Out

1. Replace it with the content you specify (depends on the block selected).

📝 This content will not be shown on your published page until the countdown timer runs out. 

2. Completely hide the Countdown timer block after the timer has run out.

3. If the "Timer" block is used, you also have the options to:

  • "Replace Timer with Existing Page Block"

...by selecting the option and then selecting the existing page block from the dropdown menu.

📝The existing block you select will automatically replace the Timer block once it has expired on your published page. Until then, it will not be visible on the published page.

  • "Leave run out timer on the page"

...by selecting that option instead. When this option is selected, the timer block will remain on the page even after the timer has expired:
