Countdown to the end of your offer

One of the strongest motivators to get people to order from you is the fear of loss.

What better way to do this then to say to your potential customers that your special offer will expire by a certain date. To make this even more powerful how about this date counts down as each day passes?

How many more sales do you think you’ll make if your potential customers believed that if they didn’t order by a certain date they would lose out?

This script will give you the chance to find out.

Here’s how to install today’s script…

A. Select all of the text in the first box below then copy to clipboard (Ctrl+c) then paste (Ctrl+v) it above the </head> tag of your HTML source code.

B. Select all of the text in the second box below then copy to clipboard (Ctrl+c), then paste (Ctrl+v) the HTML code you’ve just selected into the source code of your web page anywhere between the <body> and </body> tags. The position you choose is where advanced date will appear.

Note. You should edit the year, the month and the day within the brackets (year, month, day) accordingly to your advanced date.

C. Select all of the text in the second box below then copy to clipboard (Ctrl+c), then paste (Ctrl+v) the HTML code you’ve just selected into the source code of your web page anywhere between the <body> and </body> tags. The position you choose is where number of days till advanced date will appear.

Note. You should edit the year, the month and the day within the brackets (year, month, day) accordingly to your advanced date.
You also can add an ID of the HTML-element you’d like to hide after the date expire: (year, month, day, elementID).

 
That’s all there is to it, you can see how it should look when you’ve installed it on your web page.
