BLOG-CountdownWidgetDo you run time-sensitive promotions on your website? Wouldn’t it be great to have a way to automate your Google AdWords text ads to match the dates of your current promotion? Well, there is!

Over the next few weeks, a new feature called the Countdown Widget will be rolling out across Google AdWords accounts.  As you create a text ad, simply type in {= and you will see a window appear, which will allow you to input a Countdown End Date and time, as well as how many days until the Countdown ends. You can also set the Time Zone and Languages to target specific viewers.

Once you have entered your countdown information, you will be able to preview your AdWords ad before setting it as active.

Example:  You are running a sale on red roses for Valentine’s Day. Your sale starts February 1, 2015 at 1PM, and the ends February 13, 2015 at 6PM.

The Google AdWords Countdown Widget allows you to create an ad that will let customers know how many days they have left to take advantage of your sale! If your customers see your ad four days before the end of your sale, your ad text will reflect that there are four days left of the sale.

To get started, go to your Ads tab in AdWords, and create a new ad. To create a text ad description line that includes this information, simply type “Hurry, Sale Ends in {=” Once you type {=, just enter the date and time your countdown ends, then the number of days you have before the countdown end date. Your text ad will automatically count down as time passes!
