Designing “Coming Soon” Pages

Advertisement

Deciding what to do once you’ve purchased a domain but haven’t yet launched the website is always a bit of a conundrum. Leaving up your domain registrar or Web host’s generic page seems unprofessional, especially if you’re trying to drum up advance press for your new project. At the same time, you don’t want to spend too much time on a temporary page when you really should be working on the website itself.

The best thing to do is create a simple “Coming soon” page to notify visitors of what will eventually be there. Good “Coming soon” pages come in two basic varieties: the informational design, which simply tells visitors what will be there after launch; and the page that invites early visitors to sign up for updates or even to request a beta (or alpha) invitation. Below are some great examples of each, followed by some best practices for creating your own “Coming soon” page. You definitely won’t see among these the generic “Under construction” page (with the cute construction graphic) that used to litter the Web.

1. Tips On Designing A Good “Coming Soon” Page

Here are some best practices and tips to keep in mind when designing your own “Coming soon” pages, as well as examples.

Tell Us What to Expect

When someone lands on your “Coming soon” page, they should get an idea of what your website will be about and why it might be useful to them. This is especially important if you’re asking visitors to sign up for updates or to check back regularly. If we can’t tell what the website is for, why would we bother coming back?

Give us at least some indication of the website’s purpose. This doesn’t mean you have to spell out everything the website will offer; rather, hint that it’s something we might be interested in. For example, if you will be offering a time management app specifically for Web designers, you might say that the website will help streamline the workflow of Web designers. It gives a taste of what the website will do, while maintaining some mystery.

KISSmetrics
KISSmetrics provides a ton of information on its “Coming soon” page, including a form to sign up for updates and a blog to keep abreast of new developments. It’s a great example of a “Coming soon” page that keeps visitors informed and gets them excited about the pending launch.

Birdboxx
Birdboxx gives a basic explanation of the services it will provide when the website launches.

Anipals
Anipals gives plenty of information on the website’s features without giving away too much.

Novalistic
This “Coming soon” page explains what the new page will be about, when it will be released and also allows its visitors to sign up for the future updates.

Should You Provide Updates?

Letting visitors sign up by email to be notified on the website’s launch can be a useful marketing tool. If you don’t offer this feature, by the time your website does launch, those visitors may have forgotten about you. Of course, how often you send out an update is entirely up to you. Some websites send out an announcement only when the website has actually launched. Others send out regular updates on the progress of website’s development.

If you’re trying to build advance buzz around your website’s launch (which, in all likelihood, you are), then sending updates on a semi-regular basis could go a long way to building your website’s credibility and name recognition. If you send an update every week or two, your prospects likely won’t forget about you. Just indicate on the sign-up page that updates will be sent that often, to avoid being labeled a spammer.

You have a couple of alternatives to the standard email sign-up form, though. One is to run a blog that keeps visitors updated on your progress. This is most commonly done for Web apps, with the blog offering regular updates on development. Another common method is to use a Twitter account to keep prospective users updated. Just make sure that the link on your page to your Twitter account is prominent.

MyNiteLife
MyNiteLife lets visitors sign up for updates via email.

DesignSvn

Brand Your “Coming Soon” Page

If you already have a logo, a basic design or color scheme and font picked out, include them on your landing page to start building the brand in your visitors’ minds. Advance branding sets your website apart from your competitors and generally doesn’t cost any more to implement or take additional time. Even something as simple as using your website’s eventual font or color scheme can make you much more recognizable to future visitors. When your website finally does launch, it will have an air of familiarity to your visitors.

Fontdeck
Fontdeck includes its logo and what will presumably be the website’s color scheme on its “Coming soon” page.

Create Some Intrigue

The point of your “Coming soon” page is to get people to talk about, and come back to, your website. Even if you want to give some information on what the website will be about, creating some mystery around the launch is helpful. Curiosity is a great motivator and may get more people to sign up for updates. It also gets people talking, because visitors will ask their friends if they have any new information about the pending launch. Advance buzz can bolster your launch traffic and even attract media attention.

Better Blogger
Better Blogger gives us a basic idea of what its web site will be about without giving away too much.

Good Morning
Good Morning gives away virtually no information about what the app might do, but the name suggests that it might be related to time management or productivity.

uoOo
uoOo seems to be somehow related to video, but it doesn’t give us any more information than that.

Remember SEO

While a “Coming soon” page won’t likely make a big difference in your search engine ranking, that’s no reason not to optimize it for search engines. Use keywords and proper meta tags, and encourage those linking to your website to use good anchor text. And if you use good SEO practices to begin with, you won’t be penalized by search engines (and might even gain some decent credibility among search engines), meaning that when your website does launch, its search engine ranking will climb that much faster.

2. Informational Designs

Informational designs do what you would expect: inform early visitors about the current and future status of your domain. This design can be very simple, with just a name and text like “Coming soon,” or it might go more in depth. In either case, it is usually a single page, sometimes with an additional information page. In some cases, it also includes the owner’s contact information.

Boagworld
A great design with basic information about the return of a well-known podcast.

Shabith Ishan

3. Page To Receive Updates Or Request Invitation

These pages allow visitors to sign up for updates or receive an invitation to a beta or alpha test. They’re especially popular for online apps, but other websites use them as well. Sign-up forms are generally short, with a field for an email address and maybe one for a name. The page often includes some information about the website, too, though emphasis is kept on signing up for updates.

FavMovie
The title gives sufficient information on what the website will feature, and the sign-up form is simple.

    Some great design points there but you forgot the number one rule of Coming Soon pages. Don’t let anyone see it twice. There’s nothing that puts me off a website more, even before I’ve seen it, than constantly being confronted with a coming soon page for months. It’s very important that people remember that a coming soon page is not a temporary/replacement site. Every effort should be made to get your project/site up and running asap because people won’t wait around on the Internet for too long and someone else will surely build it faster.

    But great article, thanks. :)

    Very inspiring writeup! I think the number 1 factor to coming soon pages is to show your visitors that you’re actually working on your site, instead of just putting the page up ‘for show’ or, in lieu of an under construction page. What better way than with subscription forms and social media links :)

    I think Paddy (above) is right that you need to carefully manage how long the page is up for, and if you do give an actual launch date (which some do) then you need to stick to it.

    As an idea, how about a page with some sort of ‘progress bar’ that lets people see how close the launch is? You know, a bit like while you’re waiting for an OS to install. That would be an interesting approach.

    Another idea I’ve seen is that a designer will put up a few screen designs on the ‘coming soon’ page that let the visitor get a glimpse of what the site will look like. That can work well I think.

    You mention several times keeping a sense of mystery and not giving away too much information. I was thinking about Google Wave and thinking about how they did the exact opposite of this. It certainly generated a *ton* of interest. But maybe it then set up expectations a little high too?

    And by the way, I think using rel=”nofollow” for comments on this site is fine. But of course it’s nice to be able to click to learn a little more about a commenter sometimes. So why make it so difficult for people to leave their URL? It seems like the way to add it is to leave a comment, then click to ‘edit’ the comment, and add the URL at that point… maybe add it to your initial comment form?

    “1. Tips On Designing A Good “Coming Soon” Page”

    Here’s a tip – don’t put a page up until you have some content to put on it! Putting a “coming soon” page about a product or service you are launching is one thing, but “under construction” pages are just unnecessary dilution.

    I think that some kind of count down or progress bar would be a useful if the “under construction” page will be around for a while. Other things would be offer “before launch” beta access to those that sign up with their email.

    The biggest problem, I think, is that most “under construction” pages need to looks good, and I have the hardest time with graphic design. So I can’t get too fancy.

    As always another great article from Smashing Magazine. These are some fantastic pages, I love to see everyone to continue to push the limit of web design. I can’t underestimate a good “Coming Soon” page for marketing and gauging early interest in a site.

    Hey All,

    I’m working on a hosted solution for creating coming soon pages named “Soonr”. No programming needed, drag and drop GUI, integration with Twitter, email campaigns etc.

    You can find my coming soon page at http://www.launchsoonr.com . All feedback is much appreciated!

    Hi,

    The article was pretty helpful in me making my new coming soon page.
    There were some really creative ideas but some odd choices too.
    However, a great selection overall.

    I love this trend of coming soon pages – you get to buy into the brand early on. it’s takes whatever the product offering is even further. great list! nice eye-candy.

    here’s one i found:

    For those interested in creating a simple holding page, we are currently working on a project called PregoApp (http://www.pregoapp.com) which enables you to create a coming soon page in just a couple minutes.

    At present, they’re very simple but we are working on releasing a number of themes and giving the ability for people to customise them themselves.

    Hope this is helpful and of interest to your readers.

    Very nice collection of coming soon pages, Smashing Magazine knows how to inspire :)
    We at Lovetown Castle agency also created a coming soon page before our new awesome site will be up. We used js animation framework in it, check it out: http://lovetowncastle.com (find an easter egg ;) )

    A great round up, very helpful when I come to updating my website.
    The other day I stumbled across a coming soon page that is rather nice.
    http://www.rhubarbretail.co.uk, which might be worth a look.

    Amazing coming soon pages indeed!

    Just found another one very unique coming soon page which is worth to be on that list too. It has very well balanced colors and it looks stunning . Check it out!

    Great collections. My favorites are the ones with simple clear calls to action. The silverback one, for example, is great.

    Shameless plug – Our platform lets people create pages like this very simply so you can spend your time designing the product instead of the coming soon page.

    Thanks,
    Josh
