Running a deal site is not as easy as some make it to be. You are not only going to have to look for new deals all the time but should also keep an eye on expiring deals. Promoting your time sensitive deals on your website is a must too. The Deal or announcement with countdown for WordPress plugin is a simple script you can take advantage of to display announcements with a countdown timer in your sidebar.
This script is especially useful if you have limited time promotions you want to share with your visitors. Multiple offers can be active but only one will show up in your sidebar. The message body, its status and expiration date can be changed from the “Deal with Countdown” settings page. Users are in control of the title, color, and position of this widget.
Deal or announcement with countdown does not have too many bells and whistles. But it does let you promote limited time offers on your site more conveniently. You could always make more changes to this with some CSS coding.
