The Countdown Timer is an essential tool for sellers looking to create time-limited sales campaigns that encourage customers to act fast. With this feature, you can set a discounted price for a specific product and offer it to everyone during a set time period. By creating a sense of urgency, you can attract new customers and boost sales for your business.
It's worth noting that while the Countdown Timer is similar to the Coupon feature, there are some important differences to keep in mind. While the Countdown Timer allows anyone to buy the product at the discounted price during the sale period, the Coupon feature requires customers to have a unique code to redeem the discount. To learn more about Coupons, please refer to the Seller Marketing Section: Coupons.
Follow these simple steps to kickstart your Countdown Timer campaign:
1. Access your Shop Manager and navigate to the "Marketing" section.
2. Locate and select the "Countdown Timer" option.
3. Click on "Create a Countdown" to begin setting up your campaign.
4. Provide a name for your campaign, such as "Mother's Day Sale" or any other relevant title.
5. Under the "Add Listings" section, click on the "Edit" icon to choose the products you wish to include in the campaign. Remember, all selected products will have the same discounted price for the specified time period.
6. Take note of the original prices and current discounted prices of each product as a reference when making your selections. Simply check the boxes next to the products you want to include.
7. Choose the start date and end date for your campaign wisely. We suggest a duration of 1-2 weeks, striking the right balance between providing sufficient time for promotion on your social media channels and enabling Design Market's editors to feature it in our email newsletters and other promotional channels. It's important to keep the duration relatively short to create a sense of urgency, compelling customers to act swiftly and make a purchase within the campaign period.
8. Determine the price for all the products included in your campaign. Ensure that the discounted price you set is enticing to potential customers by considering the current prices of the included products. Alternatively, you can set the discount price to 0, creating a time-limited giveaway. This is an excellent strategy for attracting new customers to your store, as all free products will be featured in Design Market's "Free Design" section. For more information, check out our guide on "From Freebie to Sale: Using Free Design Files to Attract More Buyers".
9. Once you have saved your settings, you will find an overview of your campaign in your account. You have the flexibility to make further edits or end the campaign at any time.
The Countdown Timer is a fantastic tool for generating excitement and driving sales. By creating a time-limited opportunity for customers to purchase your products at a discounted rate, you can create a compelling sense of urgency that motivates them to act quickly. Don't miss out on this incredible feature that can help you boost sales, attract new customers, and make a lasting impact in the marketplace. Get ready to witness the power of the Countdown Timer in action!
