Your new company is going to have an awesome web page… one day.
But until that day, what should you do with your shiny new domain name? Let it sit, either an ugly construction site or - maybe worse - a generic “Sorry, the page you were looking for does not exist” message?
Heck no. Put that domain name to work.
What is a “coming soon” web page?
A “coming soon” web page is usually a simple, single page, with just a few static elements. But that simple page can do a lot for your company. Most importantly, it can build a foundation for a successful launch of your full page.
Done correctly, a coming soon page will
- Grow your email subscription list
- Cross promote both to and from your social media accounts
- Build brand recognition by displaying your company’s name, logo, and custom company email address
- Get a head start on SEO by allowing search engines to begin indexing your page with proper key words
