What is a Countdown Timer?

A countdown timer does exactly what it says on the tin. It's a graphic timer that you add to your live video (typically at the start) that counts down to the start of your broadcast.

The main reason for this is that your live stream reaches its peak number of viewers around the 18 to 20 minute mark on Facebook and around the 10 to 15 minute mark on YouTube and 10 to 20 minutes on Twitch, and you don't want to start your main content if not everyone is watching, so the countdown timer is a great way to get attention and play into the algorithms so your live stream is discovered.

We recommend that you start your live stream with a 10 to 20 minute segment on a starting soon source with chat enabled, allowing you to garner engagement before moving on to your major material, so that you may communicate with your viewers and make the streaming experience more involved.

Why use a countdown timer in your live stream?

A countdown timer allows you to broadcast your live video with your various audiences and entice them to return to watch. It's commonly utilized for going live soon scenes and by streamers who are doing live streaming marathons, but it's most vital for establishing habits and engagement with your audience.

Who's up for a little extra interaction? I'm sure you do. Twitch and Youtube simply enjoy engagement because the algorithms love it. They see that they are beneficial to you since you are gaining engagement, which leads to sales.

We utilized a transparent background by default in the countdown timer so that you could see everything behind the words. It adds interest and may easily be customized to fit your design.
