Before we tall you about countdown clocks, let's get something straight: These are not just clocks.

“A countdown clock is not a product,” says Budd Goldman, president of Countdown Clocks, “but a motivational tool that produces better sales results — especially in the last few weeks when incentive participants are close to making their goals and have that constant reminder on their desks.”

His company has custom-made thousands of clocks in credit card, wall, and desk styles. The Time Remaining Countdown Clock, for example, is customized with your company's or incentive program's four-color graphics. It's the perfect incentive teaser.
