If you’re in the process of launching an online business directory website, it’s important to create a “coming soon” page to collect email addresses for potential users and subscribers. In this webinar, we’ll walk you through the steps of creating a coming soon page for your online directory website.
Step 1: Choose a Platform
When starting an online directory website, one of the first things you’ll need to do is choose a platform on which to build your site. There are a variety of options available, each with its own pros and cons, but one of the most popular choices among directory website owners is eDirectory.
eDirectory is a powerful and versatile platform that offers a wide range of features and tools to help you create a professional and user-friendly online directory. With eDirectory, you’ll have access to a visual editor that makes it easy to customize the look and feel of your site, as well as a control panel that allows you to manage and organize your content with ease.
Step 2: Choose a Design
Once you’ve chosen a platform, it’s time to choose a design for your coming soon page. There are a variety of templates available, or you can create a custom design. Keep in mind that the design should be simple, clean, and easy to navigate. It’s also important to include a clear call to action (e.g., “Sign up for updates” or “Be the first to know when we launch”). We show in detail how to explore eDirectory’s Page Editor to create and publish a Coming Soon page.
Step 3: Add Content
The next step is to add content to your coming soon page. This should include a brief description of your online directory, what users can expect, and any features or benefits you plan to offer. It’s also important to include a form for users to sign up for updates or to be notified when the site launches.
This is not a mandatory step, but if you feel like your website will benefit from a further explanation of what people should expect, go for it.
Step 4: Test and Launch
Before launching your coming soon page, it’s important to test it to ensure that it is functioning properly and that there are no errors. Once you’ve done that, it’s time to launch your page and start promoting it.
Creating a coming soon page for your online directory website is an important step in the launch process. It’s a great way to generate excitement, build anticipation, and collect email addresses for potential users and subscribers. By following these steps, you’ll be able to create a coming soon page that is effective and generates results.
