Why countdown timers are needed?

First of all, it is necessary for site owners who want to make a promotion or create their own selling pages. As a rule, the timer on the site counts down the time in the reverse order, clearly showing the number of days, hours and minutes, remaining until the end of the action, the distribution of bonuses or sales, prompting the visitor to take action, for example, the acquisition advertised on the product page. Countdown timers have long become an important element of the Landing Page, creating effect of urgency and limited supply of goods / services.

Countdown counters cause to many people FOMO syndrome - it is an obsessive fear of missing an interesting event or a good opportunity. When the user sees that time is decreasing, he is afraid to miss this event. He begins to think that you need to act faster and time does not work in his favor, that`s why installing countdown timer on your website or letter will be a big step in increasing the conversion.
