Why you should use a Countdown Timer Popup
Before we teach you the trick, it’s important to know why you are doing it. When optimizing your store for conversions, it’s important to understand the psychology beneath purchases. Today’s conversion hack is all about the Fear Of Missing Out. That means, that if you create scarcity or give a deadline for a deal, your customer will be triggered to complete the action. This is because their mind triggers them with scenarios like “What if I don’t act now? Then I’ll miss an amazing opportunity.”
