Pre-launch pages can work wonders for almost any type of business if marketed properly. In this post I will show you 2 pre-launch pages, from typekit.com and kissmetrics.com, which in June 2009 attracted 39,000 and 20,000 unique visitors respectively.
Why a pre-launch page is important?
With a pre-launch page you can start promoting your upcoming website via PR, blogging, Twitter etc. and create buzz around your business, service or product right away, because you already have a mini website.
Many times the launch of your new website can take longer than anticipated for various reasons like money issues or development of your product (service, software etc). For example kissmetrics.com launched their pre-launch page in July 2008, which is more than a year ago. But since then they have attracted over 288,395 visitors to their site. That’s 288,395 visitors aware of their product before they even launched it!
