What is the best way to create a quick and dirty 'coming soon' page?

Bennett Newhook @bennettnewhook

There are tons of resources out there, not really sure where to start. Looking to create a landing page that can take sign-ups to test a new SaaS service. A/B testing would be preferred. Should I be trying to start from scratch? Wordpress? Template site?

    I use carrd.co for this.

      Thanks! I will take a look when I get home.

    We're currently using webflow - in fact, we haven't switched it over from the webflow domain yet. Check it out, it lives here (for now 😝 ): https://getspacetime.webflow.io/

    The hardest part so far has been preparing the images (and soon to be Gifs) - in other words, Webflow is really quite easy! (although it still takes time to build a webpage)

    Also, I was just clicking around IH and found @demtzu's product, "Lazy". I saw his landing page was here: https://www.producthunt.com/upcoming/lazy and found out about Ship by Product Hunt: https://www.producthunt.com/ship/create-your-own-landing-page

    I'm strongly considering building a ProductHunt upcoming page for SpaceTime.

    Also, Makerpad has a good curated list of website builders: https://www.makerpad.co/marketplace (click "Websites")

    Good luck!

      Great name! Thanks for sending down those links, great to have some references. Watched the ProductHunt video and it says that it's free, I will check on the included free features and post here in a few hours.

      Thanks very much!

    Thanks to everyone who responded. Quick update, ended up using Carrd. It was quick and easy but I did not see any notable difference from developing a free Wix site. I connected it to a Google Form to collect information since I do not believe that the free Carrd sites give you any metrics.

    I will highly recommend landen.co. it is really beautiful and Customizable. I also personally use it.
