Dial up your sense of urgency with these 7 tried-and-true tips.

Offer Something that People Want

Are you wondering the same?

If someone isn’t interested in your product, all the finite time offers in the world won’t make them want it.

This is exactly important to keep in mind as you are driving traffic to your site, too.

Sending traffic on broad keywords that don’t speak to intent is a waste of time as well as a waste of money if you are using paid sources to get them to an offer they don’t want.

Set a Deadline

Create an incentive to take action by running your sales and offers for a lean time.

How to create time pressure?

Use a countdown timer on your site. Show your audience how many days, hours, and minutes are left for them to decide.

Create Scarcity

Learn how to highlight and scarce people for your product or service is, or at least create the illusion that it’s about to run out and you can drive your audience to click the Buy button.

For eCommerce businesses, there is a general way to do this. Announce that you only have a limited number of an item left in stock.

Let’s take an example of creating scarcity:

Booking.com inclines up their sense of urgency by making visitors feel as if someone else could book the room they want at an urgent moment.

Keep the Pressure On

For instance, if people leave your site after adding few things to their cart, you could add a countdown timer to your shopping cart page to pop up a notification to people’s phone that your sale ends soon.

Use Numbers

Use numbers to push a sense of scarcity — for example, “Just 3 more in stock!”

Use the Right Words

Time-related words specifically help for creating a sense of urgency.

Try including some of these words into your ad copy:

  • Now
  • Hurry
  • One time only
  • Last chance
  • Before it’s gone
  • Clearance
  • Today only
  • Limited time
  • Instant
  • Don’t miss out

Offer a Bonus Incentive

Let’s look into an example, you might offer free shipping for a limited time, or give your first 10 buyers a free surprise gift.

This skill works well; when layered with other limited-time or FOMO tactics.
