Start SEO before launch with only a landing page? Waste of money or good idea?

    Hi, we are finishing building the site (its a big complex project) and at the moment our domain is pointing to a landing page in Unbounce. My question is it this would prevent our domain benefitting from the SEO package? I would like to start SEO asap so when the full site is ready the domain is already well positioned in google for our keywords. Sorry if Im asking a stupid question but Im new to this and don't want to waste money on a SEO package. Thanks in advance for your help ;)

    I start building links as soon as I own the domain. If it were going to be more than 2 weeks, I would wait until you're about two weeks from launch then start with the link building.

    Thanks for the advice, can you please tell me why you would wait until two weeks before launch?

    Just a personal preference. If I don't know when the domain is launching, you might want to wait until a little closer just so some of the links don't get deleted since they're linking to an empty domain.

    If you have a 'Coming Soon' page, you should be fine linking any time.
