What are some best practices for creating timers?

Here are some general tips to keep in mind to make a timer like a superstar:

1. Label your timer. You don't want to confuse your customers or readers. Remember to add a label to your timer to make sure viewers easily understand what event or deadline the countdown is ticking toward. 

2. Don't go overboard. Try to use timers for specific events. That way, you'll be sending a much stronger message than by using them in every campaign.

3. Check the expiration time and date. Always double (or triple) check that your timer is counting down the time to the right expiration date to avoid any confusion.

How can I style my timer?

You can customize any timer to your liking. Pick the right color palette that fits your website or blog. Change the color for your digits and your text. Adjust the labels and pick the right font size. To edit your chart, click on it, then go to Settings and make the necessary changes.
