So before getting into the Thrive Ultimatum review, you need to know what is scarcity marketing and its importance. It is human nature to show interest in buying things that may expire soon or things that have a deadline.
For example, when there is a deadline saying that the offer for a particular product may expire in a specific time, then people are more eager and show more interest in buying that product. So this is the whole principle running behind the scarcity marketing.
So with Thrive Ultimatum plugin, you can optimize your website conversion rate by creating scarcity marketing campaign for your products and services.

How to create your scarcity marketing campaign using Thrive Ultimatum?
The Thrive Ultimatum plugin comes with a lot of features that allows its users to create an effective marketing campaign. In this review, I will guide you on how to use the Thrive Ultimatum plugin to create your marketing campaign on your WordPress site.
After opening the Thrive Ultimatum page by selecting the plugin under the Thrive Dashboard present in the side of your WordPress admin page, click on the New Campaign button to create a new marketing campaign for your product.
Now, choose a template from the list available if you don’t want to create a campaign on your own. If you want to create your marketing campaign by yourself, then choose build from scratch option.
Now, provide a name for the marketing campaign and then click continue to proceed further.
There are four steps that you need to do before starting your campaign. First, choose a campaign type for the product. There are three different campaign types that can be run for a different purpose.
1.The fixed date campaign allows you to select a fixed start date and end date during which you want the campaign to run.
2.The recurring campaign allows you to create a countdown timer campaign and repeats the campaign after a specified period of time continuously.
3.The evergreen campaign, you can start the countdown timer for each user depending on their actions. For instance, you can start the countdown timer if the user subscribes to your newsletter or visits a specific page on your site or after his first visit to your site.
Here, I chose the fixed date campaign and hence I need to provide the start date, start time, end date and end time during which I wish the campaign to run.
The second step is to choose a display option for your campaign like where you wish to display the countdown timer on your webpage. You can choose to display it in all your post or on a specific page or on your homepage alone etc. In my case, I choose to display it in all my blog post and on the front page of the site.
The third step is to choose a design for the countdown timer to be displayed on your site.
For this, you need to choose a design type like in which section of the page you wish the countdown timer to be displayed.
There are four different options available: displaying it at the top of the website, bottom of the website, as a widget in the side of the webpage or using a shortcode of the countdown timer to display it wherever you like in the page.
Now, click on this edit button to select a countdown timer and design it as per your wish.
You can edit it with thrive architect plugin, read the review here
Select a countdown timer from the list available and click continue to proceed further.
You can click on it to edit the text and wording present in the timer. You can also edit the button text and the target page for the button. You can also add a different state for the countdown timer by clicking the ‘+’ button at the bottom and edit the timer design for that particular state. I will show you how to activate the different states of the timer after this part. Once the design is completed, click on the save button to save all the changes you made to the timer.
The fourth step is to activate the Lockdown feature for your campaign. Here you need to provide the URL for the pages that will be opened when a user clicks the offer button before the campaign starts, during the campaign and after the expiry of the campaign.
Lockdown Feature is useful to create Real and Authentic Campaign. so for example you create an offer discount that is available only on 7th February,
If any user try to access the offer page before the date. it will show the Pre -Access Page ( maybe opt in page )
And if it is accessed after the date it will show the Expired Page
So these are the four main steps for running your marketing campaign. The below steps are optional but it is recommended that you follow them for creating an effective scarcity marketing campaign.
You can activate the different states of the timer by clicking the ‘+’ button in the timeline.
Now, provide the time before which you want the state to be activated and select the corresponding state from the drop-down box.
The final step in building your marketing campaign is to create a conversion events for your campaign by clicking on the Add New button present adjacent to the Conversion Events.
Now, select a trigger type from the drop-down box. The two trigger types are: visit a conversion page and a user subscription page. Then provide the conversion page that you wish to use for your campaign and click continue.
You can also connect the the user subscription with thrive leads
Then select an action for the trigger to be performed. You can either end the campaign for the user who has made the purchase by not displaying the timer or you can move him to another campaign.
Once all the above steps are completed and if you are satisfied with the design of the campaign, you can start it by clicking on the play button present at the top of the page.
This is how the countdown timer is displayed to the users of my website.
