    Hey,

    I have a client who wants a COMING SOON page installed on his front page. However, he doesn't want to have a countdown. Just a nice page with some social buttons.

    Themeforest is full of these, but 99% of them are with countdown.

    Any recommendations please?

    It's ok if it's paid.

    I do everything from scratch with blank pages. Do you know how to hand code? It's very easy.

    Use a themeforest theme and delete the countdown timer from the code.

    If you want to impress your client make it original: imaginative or funny. Take a notion from his core business and spin it into something worthwile.

    Example for a bakery: "We're cooking the site. Sign up for the newsletter and we'll let you know when it's hot from the oven. Oh, that steamy delicious delight" bla bla sort of thing. Add some nice visuals and you have a killer coming soon page + you'll get a nice startup subscriber list to use or grow later on. You could also get cited on design forums and blogs and get free links while you're at it. Kill 2 birds with a stone.

    Download a program caled "WebPageMaker". It is a WYSIWYG editor and has a trial. You can make all kinds of simple sites or pages with it, I use it a lot for splash pages and graphics.

    You can build what you want with it, especially if its temporary. Its older tech, but displays fine.
