Working on developing your website or doing a complete overhaul? If you are in the transition phase and don’t have any content up, you may want to consider Launchrock. It’s a free service that allows you to create a coming soon landing page while your site is being built so people don’t see a generic page that usually shows advertisements for another company. Their goal, and one of the most important benefits is to allow users to build an audience for their business before it has launched in order to develop traction and acquire interest in advance.
Here’s how it works:
With their custom templates, creating a coming soon page can be done in minutes by uploading a background photo, logo and tagline detailing what your company is about. There’s also the option to embed a video, animated GIF and create a mobile page version. If you are savvy on the technical side or work with a developer, you can use their embed widget feature to create a custom page from scratch.
Launchrock has several features that make their service go beyond just a standard temporary page:
- Each template includes a place to capture email addresses
- Users can collect information such as name, company, phone number, zip and date of birth
- There’s the option to add social sites to allow visitors to connect and share
- They offer analytics to see who is visiting the site
