What is scarcity marketing?
Scarcity marketing works amazingly well!
Any time you can reasonably limit something the fear of missing out (FOMO) kicks in and makes it infinitely more attractive to the human mind. The easiest way to add FOMO and sell more product is to make time an issue with a countdown timer.
I was first introduced to scarcity marketing through the guys over at noble samurai.
They used to have a WordPress plugin called scarcity samurai which would allow you to add FOMO to your WordPress pages. The plugin was amazing until it was discontinued because WordPress is always evolving.

2 popular scarcity plugins for WordPress
Here are 2 WordPress plugins to add FOMO to your website.
Divi Timer Pro – A scarcity WordPress plugin for Divi
Divi Timer Pro is the missing link to the Divi themes standard countdown timer module.
It creates a new countdown timer module and adds a suite of FOMO marketing features to your Divi based website like evergreen campaigns with a countdown timer.
It’s a great tool allowing you to add auto-restart, fixed campaigns and evergreen campaigns to increase your conversions. You can also use it in the Divi page builder and a WooCommerce page too.
Thrive Ultimatum is a scarcity plugin for WordPress so you can easily add scarcity-based marketing to your Thrive Architect based website.
It has features similar to the plugin above and among the plugins popular items are templates, evergreen campaigns, countdown timer, multi-page campaigns, analytics, hello bars, trigger campaigns from opt-ins and trigger campaigns from email links.
Ultimatum is the more powerful tool but can only be used with Thrive Architect so you can’t use it with miscellaneous WordPress themes.
