ClickBar: Free call to action bar with scarcity timer

One thing we should all know by now is that scarcity sells.

Anything with scarcity on it, be it a squeeze page, sales page, product review, anything will get more engagement if it has scarcity.  Because of this I decided I wanted to bring scarcity to my blog. So I started looking for a WordPress plugin that I could use to add a clickable call to action ‘bar’ on my site with a scarcity countdown time. Unfortunately I could not find one that was both done well and suited my needs. So I decided to create my own, and Click Bar was born.

Click Bar is 100% free to download and use. If you feel like your could use this plugin on your own WordPress blog please feel free to click the link below and get your copy as my gift to you. The only thing that I ask is that you do me a favor and click one of the social share buttons on the left hand side of this page and give me a Facebook like, Twitter tweet, or Google +1 (which ever you prefer)

A quick note about the reviews I do on this site. The product vendors give me access to their products for free in order for me to do my review. However I make no promises to them regarding the results of my tests or what I will write in my review. Should you click a link that takes you to a sales page for a paid product for sale this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to invest in it.

    Very cool plugin! I liked on Facebook and shared on Google+. Thanks for the free plugin and all your honest reviews.

  2. Brett Rutecky, 05 August, 2015

    The think that people who buy IM products want upgrades and ongoing support long term but don’t want to pay a monthly fee ever.

  3. Brett Rutecky, 08 August, 2015

    Scarcity is not a form of trickery if its real scarcity. Its only trickery if your lying to people. I dont lie to people when I do scarcity I say very clearly .. early action takes will get {extra bonus or discounted price} and when the time is up I remove the incentive. How can you be tricking people if your telling them it and if you stick by what you say?

  4. Tom, 28 October, 2015

    You are 100% Right. As Long as you do what you say and the end is the end then whatever you were offering is now gone then you proved your scarcity is real!! It is unfortunate that there are marketers out there that use it as a tool but never back it up! They are the ones that make people think it is just a TRICK ! They Just make themselves out as liars and will eventually lose the trust of those on their list and others.

  5. Tom, 28 October, 2015

    Hi Bret,
    Thank You for your Honest and Informative Reviews! Again, Thank You for the Free Clickbar Plugin, Very Cool! You are 100% Right about False Scarcity! As Long as you do what you say, and the end is the end, so whatever you were offering is now gone, then you proved your scarcity is real!! It is unfortunate that there are marketers out there that use it as a tool but never back it up! They are the ones that make people think it is just a TRICK ! They Just make themselves out as liars and will eventually lose the trust of those on their list and others. But also create a question in peoples minds anytime they see scarcity used and then some will really miss out on some awesome deal because they thought it was always a trick! Not fair to the prospective buyer!

  8. kami, 08 August, 2015

    Excellent plugin, thank you Brett for your generosity. have a great day..

  9. Mark, 08 August, 2015

    Gave you a Like and a + but this point have never tweeted and probably the only tweet I’ll make in this lifetime is when I expire. Thanks Brett.

  10. Brett Rutecky, 08 August, 2015

    Ha! Thanks Mark 🙂

  11. Kellie R Crosby, 08 August, 2015

    Thank you Brett,

    As always you give such tremdous value to all your followers and fans. I truly enjoy your reviews and products. =)

  12. Michael, 08 August, 2015

    You keep saying you are the most hated. I think you are great!

    Thank you so much for the plugin.

  13. Brett Rutecky, 08 August, 2015

    Well its some of the other marketers that hate me .. slowly they are hating me less and moving towards tolerating me though (still not quite liking yet). Some of them really don’t like how I do my reviews.

  14. Shawn, 09 August, 2015

    Well, too bad for them for you raising the bar on the quality IM products and trainings.

    I hope you continue to kill the fluff and deflate the hype for a long time to come.

    I always check your site for any IM product release, and if its not there, I try to apply your methods to determine if its a good product or not.

    Thanks for your great work!

  15. Celia, 08 August, 2015

  33. Hitesh, 08 August, 2015

  34. Jim Schaub, 08 August, 2015

    This is great, Brett! You’re right, there are very few timer bars that work well. Thanks for providing a solid solution, and for all the value you provide!

  35. Archie, 08 August, 2015

    Thanks for the neat wp plugin. I am sure it will be useful.
    Can it be given away to sell other software, eg,Jack Jacker Gold?

  36. Brett Rutecky, 08 August, 2015

    For sure give it away all you like. (for list building is a good idea)

  37. Samuel D. Bates, 08 August, 2015

    Very good asset to have. Great idea! Thank you Brett. Much appreciated.

  38. Tim, 08 August, 2015

    Awesome Brett, I appreciate it!
    I’ve added a Google plus!

  39. Scott, 08 August, 2015

    Thanks Brett, looks like a nice timer, as much as I hate those things I know they work!

    I appreciate your generosity!


  40. David, 08 August, 2015

    Totally awesome, great thanks!

  41. Brian W., 08 August, 2015

    Thanks for the free gift, very nice. Are you going to do a review of TubeLoot?

  48. Brett Rutecky, 09 August, 2015

    Sorry I dont have any plans on reviewing TubeLoot. While I wish I could review them all there are just to many for me to do so.

  49. Trish, 08 August, 2015

    Great plugin Brett, thanks for sharing with us. Have done the same.

  50. Dave Sweney, 09 August, 2015

    NIce tool, thanks for sharing this with us all…I have downloaded it and will use it! Cheers!

  51. Colin, 09 August, 2015

    Thanks Brett for this it will be most useful. The end time seems a bit unclear. When I set the date, say 14th Aug, does that mean it will finish at midnight eastern on the 14th? I know its free however its a pity we can’t set an actual time.

  52. Brett Rutecky, 09 August, 2015

    It will end at midnight your server time. Im writing a more advanced version in the future. Keep in mind that this one was designed with my personal specs in mind (and I always end my promos at midnight).

  53. Cipto, 09 August, 2015

    Thanks a lot Brett. I

  54. MFK, 09 August, 2015

  61. Scott, 10 August, 2015

    Thanks for the plugin Brett. Is it possible to add this to your Jack Jacker Plugin? It would be cool to have an option to show a countdown timer like that on other people’s pages. Just a suggestion. Thanks again for this. Scott

  62. Brett Rutecky, 10 August, 2015

    Sorry no it wont work with JackJacker

  72. Hans R. Luginbuhl, 21 August, 2015

    I think you finally turned my life around. I have been driving organic traffic to customers websites since 2004 and all the money i maid went right back out for more expenses on the latest traffic gimmick coming down the pick.

  73. Wayne, 22 August, 2015

    Hi Brett,
    Thanks for the plugin. I bought the package.
    One question, how do I setup this plugin on my wordpress site. Sorry, I’m an newbie


  74. Brett Rutecky, 22 August, 2015

    There are a lot of tutorials on Google that I think can help you. If you try searching for ‘how to install a WordPress plugin’ you should be able to find several as well as some good video tutorials.

  75. Leonardo, 25 August, 2015

    Hell Brett,
    I just buy the training throught your link, so how i get the plug in and the trainig ?

  76. Brett Rutecky, 25 August, 2015

    Im not sure what you mean since your responding to a post that gives something away for free, not one that sells a training.

  77. Blakeatl, 08 November, 2015

    I’m not seeing a link for Clickbar either unless I’m missing something.
    Thanks for your tools though as I’ve tried some others.

  78. Brett Rutecky, 08 November, 2015

    You dont see the optin form?

  79. Ron, 03 December, 2015

    Hey Brett,

    Nice plugin works great. However it does not look like it is
    mobile compatible. It does not show the whole bar on
    mobile device.

    Not complaining just sayin.

  80. Brett Rutecky, 03 December, 2015

    Mobiles are tough since most they have not yet adopted wide spread standards. Where mobiles are now, is where desktops where in the early 2000’s

  81. Ron, 05 December, 2015

    Okay Thank You for yout response.

  82. james, 10 December, 2015

    Thank you!!!!! =)

  83. james, 10 December, 2015

    Hi Brett,

    I’m a newbie, Do i need to install that software on my PC or Just directly open it on WordPress? thank you!

  84. Brett Rutecky, 10 December, 2015

    Its a WordPress plugin. I would suggest you do some research on WordPress and on how to install plugins etc. Google is the #1 friend of the newbie.

  85. Hauwa, 30 July, 2016

    Hi Brett,

    Thanks for the ClickBar Plugin. So sorry I could not give you any likes ’cause I am yet to get my head round Social.
    Thanks again.

    Remain blessed!

  86. Saiful Nizam, 26 October, 2016

    Hi Brett! I just downloaded the plugin. However it is not functioning. No calendar to select date and no countdown even I tried to just type the date format.

  87. Brett Rutecky, 26 October, 2016

    Disable your other plugins, sounds like a conflict.

  88. fobshop, 19 July, 2019

    Frank O’Brien.

    I have just down loaded the plugin and I will download it later. Thank you for making it and giving me free access to it

  89. fred, 25 April, 2020

    Hi Brett !
    I don’t see any link ?

  90. Brett Rutecky, 01 May, 2020

    Im updating the plugin.
