My website sells a monthly service. Our typical prospective customer will visit once and never come back so we want them to encourage him to subscribe right then and there. To increase conversions we currently offer free bonuses for signing up. Is using a 24 hour window to get these free bonuses a good idea or should I go another route?

Does something like "Sign Up in the Next 24 Hours (or by tonight at midnight) and receive $X in Free Bonuses" sound like a good idea? Are there other better ideas out there? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Hello, just measure your conversion ratio when implementing 24-hours expiration, then compare with 48-hours or 7-days.

It's your customers' behaviour that should give answer to this question, not we here.

Work on the logic behind scarcity. That will increase your conversion more than anything else when it comes to limiting the offer.

I completely agree with Morganhund - it's completely contingent on your endusers, and the only way to know is by testing.

www.google.com/analytics - it's a beautiful thing.

If you are using a timed cut off remember to mention the time zone.
