How to Design “Coming Soon” Pages with examples

Tasks that you would always think of before getting your website up and running

1. What should be your domain
2. Get the hosting Space
3. Buy the domain that suites your business
4. ……………….
5. Start thinking about the look of your website

But wait don’t you think you must have missed a step 4 in the whole
process.
Yes!!!! This is the step where you never pay attention. This Step 4 is
getting a “Coming Soon” page for the website. After buying the domain the first thing that you should get yourself involved is to get the correct coming soon page for website. The reason for creating a coming soon page is that once you register your domain and start to market the same that you are going online with the website name as www.xyz.com then many people would be visiting your site to check if it has been completed or not. If they visit the page and see “No Page Found” error it would surely look very unprofessional.

But that doesn’t mean that you should just put a small “Under construction” image and leave it there, because that would not create any excitement in the users that have come to your site to visit it again. For creating that enthusiasm you need to design the “Coming Soon” page very sensibly. Nowadays you can even have email newsletters put up on your website for your readers so that they can subscribe to it and know when exactly your website is going to come up. But do make sure to have an exchange anti spam providing server so that you do not get many spam mails to your Exchange. For that you need to select one of the Best Hosted Exchange Provider which could help you to tackle other problems related to mails…

In this post we would be outlining the main things that you should always keep in mind while creating a “Coming Soon” page.

Keeping it very simple


You may opt to keep your “Coming Soon” page very simple. But even that could be turn out to be a brilliant small master piece. You could use your logo theme(if you have any) to get your background color. Then you could also feature your Logo and Name along with a small “Coming Soon” message.

Provide the deadline and the progress of the website


If you are sure as to till when the website could be built then you should always think of putting up the date on which the website would be up. Along with the date you could also provide with the timeline progress of the site. That could keep your visitors close to your site.
