When starting work on a new website idea, the first thing you probably do is to acquire the domain name and set up some sort of a coming soon page (remember those construction site gif animations? Don’t use them!).
It is actually a good idea to invest some time in the development of this page. This is the first encounter visitors have with you and your product. You can even use it as a marketing channel and let people subscribe to your launch newsletter.
