Two Local Mothers Launch New Website For Their Unique Company,
Creative Countdown, LLC
Company Offering The Only Fully Customizable Countdown Calendar Available For Sale Launches New Website
CHAPEL HILL, N.C., October 6, 2014 – Creative Countdown, LLC, the Chapel Hill-based company offering the only fully customizable countdown calendar available for sale online, has announced that their new website is set to launch on October 6. The site, www.CreativeCountdown.com allows users to create fully personalized daily or weekly countdowns perfect for gift giving. This unique product allows customers to count down to a specific date with a daily message personalized on each ‘day left’. Users can choose from a multitude of designs to match their style or theme.
Since launching the original website in November 2012, Creative Countdown immediately experienced tremendous success among customers seeking a unique way to Savor The Suspense® of any upcoming event, such as a wedding, birth of a child, retirement, vacation or graduation. From the start, the countdowns were a hit, reaching customers in 45 states and more than a dozen countries. The company also has created a line of standard, non-personalized, countdown products available for sale online and at select retail locations. So far, the most popular countdowns are for weddings and retirements.
The new website will better cater to customers’ needs by providing a simplified process for building personalized countdowns, better pricing options, a tool to import contact lists for email countdowns, and the ability for companies and organizations to include their logo or a customized design. In addition, customers will now be able to create countdowns spanning 300 days or more.
Though customers are encouraged to fully customize and author their own entries, quick-fill suggested entries are available for a multitude of event types, such as wedding, birth of a child and graduation. Countdowns can be ordered on a flip-stand or a tear-off pad for gift giving, or as an email to be sent to a larger group. The company will continue to expand the list of suggested entries to make calendar building easy, but urge customers to modify and create their own to make their countdown more unique and special.
The idea for Creative Countdown was inspired when Joanie Hickey wanted to give her friend, Amy Gamber, a unique gift while awaiting the birth of her child. When she could not find a customizable countdown anywhere online, she decided to make one herself. By utilizing her graphic design experience, Joanie was able to create a unique gift that Amy loved. Family, friends and coworkers were excited about the countdown and wanted Joanie’s help creating their own countdown, and these two Chapel Hill moms then decided to start their new business together. Gamber serves as marketing director and partner, while Hickey is creative director and partner.
“We are so excited about the success of Creative Countdown so far,” said Gamber, “We look forward to continuing to offer a unique way to help customers countdown to the most important moments in their lives using our products.”
“Our new website will be the perfect tool to help our customers create a unique countdown leading up to some of life’s most special celebrations,” said Hickey. “With a streamlined building process, better pricing options and several other benefits, this website is sure to help us continue to grow as a company and deliver a unique gift to even more individuals around the world.”
