      Install a Page Builder:
      Go to “Plugins” > “Add New” in your WordPress dashboard.
      Search for a page builder like Elementor or Beaver Builder.
      Install and activate the page builder.

      Install a Countdown Timer Plugin:
      In the WordPress dashboard, go to “Plugins” > “Add New.”
      Look for a countdown timer plugin, e.g., “Countdown Timer Ultimate.”
      Install and activate the countdown timer plugin.

      Create a New Page:
      Go to “Pages” > “Add New” in your dashboard.
      Title your page, like “Download Page.”

      Design Your Page:
      Use the page builder to design your page layout.

      Add Countdown Timer:

      Configure the countdown timer settings for the desired time.
      If using a download manager, set up any restrictions on when the download link becomes active.

      Test Your Page:
      Before making the page live, test the countdown and download link to ensure they work.

      Communicate Instructions:
      Clearly communicate the countdown and download instructions on your page.
