In this short video tutorial, you'll see how Fastr Frontend enables you to create countdown timers that display deadlines, create a sense of urgency, and drive sales. 


For ecommerce teams, the holiday countdown is on! 


Humans are notoriously deadline-driven. When we're faced with a looming deadline, our bodies release stress hormones and neurotransmitters that motivate us to act – and fast. 


As you prepare your holiday campaigns, you're probably becoming increasingly familiar with this feeling!


But once your campaigns go live and your holiday marketing begins, you need to shift that sense of urgency onto your customers and you need more than just clever copy to do it. 


Countdown timers are a fantastic tool to convey deadlines, create urgency (aka FOMO), reduce abandoned carts, and boost conversions – all without additional copy that often goes unread or can become too pushy. 


With Fastr Frontend, you can easily create and iterate countdown timers for your site's pages – without any code and without any dev handoffs. They can even be created to automatically reset and restart so your team doesn't have to constantly manage them. 


For example, UrbanStems leveraged Fastr Frontend-powered experiences – including automatically-resetting countdown timers – for their Mother's Day campaign this year. The result? The online flower retailer recorded its highest-ever revenue day
