Why you need a coming soon page WooCommerce

Before explaining how to create your WooCommerce coming soon page is best understand why it is necessary to have one.

adds anticipation and excitement to your website

As I said at the beginning of the article (the metaphor of commercial premises), having a simple page showing information about your upcoming online store , will be much better than having nothing.

This will generate some interest to most visitors, and a certain percentage of them will be very curious when we really open the store (it’s where come into play certain promotion strategies mentioned you below).

Provides information your visitors

In addition to generating that expectation mentioned in the previous section, what you are is offering direct a «real» information that the user can now use somehow (products go to sell , discount coupons, a newsletter to subscribe, some social networks to follow …).

starts collecting emails of your future customers

This is the most interesting (and useful) part of having a WooCommerce coming soon page.

Although not 100% of visitors to your website will give your email for reporting them (hey, never do spam ) on the launch of your online store. Yes you will have many options to more people than you think choose to subscribe to your newsletter.

Yes, I recommend using a professional newsletter service (I’ve always used Mailchimp, but there are many others).

On the other hand, I recommend also put an «anti-bots» on your form and maintain a neat, clean and with as much information as possible about your leads list.

What items are included?

Once we have understood the importance of a page WooCommerce coming soon , let’s see what items should contain:

1. a logo or something that represents you

I assume you’re going to have a logo or some kind of typeface to represent you. Do not hesitate to put it on the page, so that as you begin to associate your brand with what you do or sell.

2. Small text «sell»

a paragraph explaining what you do (not you spend long).

Imagine that you have been a friend, and accounts in two or three sentences, what will be your online store and what you sell.

Again, no comets the mistake of dropping a «tirade» with the mission of your online store, who you are, etc. Nobody cares, at the least for now.

3. Striking image or video (if really necessary)

If your products have or will have a lot of potential in terms of image or multimedia, do not hesitate to put a representation of «things to come» when you have the online store.

For example, if you sell sunglasses, put a photo of a model or bringing them to leave with their mouths open your visits and generate them from first a need to purchase .

4. Countdown (if you see fit)

This is somewhat optional, but if you have a specific launch date for your online store and want to generate «impatience» on your visits, put a countdown to are more attentive than ever to start buying your products or services.

5. A newsletter subscription form (fundamental)

The heart of your WooCommerce coming soon page. I’ve already given the reasons above, so I will not repeat.

Just make sure it works (tests make real) and to avoid emails that you are not going to give anything (eg robots), have the interested in subscribing to your newsletter, have to check email clicking a link within an e-mail to be sent from your website.

is the most reliable way to get emails from people genuinely interested in what you do or what you sell.

6. Links to social networks

Just below form newsletter, why not put icons to social networks.

two things in this regard, I see that recur in many websites I see or what I consider a «practice bad» to creating a website, especially this:

not include an «embedded» in the timelines of your social networks.

is, you can not see what you publish them on your website. It is somewhat redundant and nobody cares. If you really are interested, and will deal with «follow» in the respective social networks and there reading your posts.

not show how many «likes» you, unless you have a lot.

If you have 10 or 15 fans on Facebook, not worth this number appears on your page WooCommerce coming soon. Just add an icon to Facebook with a link to your social network.

not use social networks «because»

Although this «sale» a bit of the context of this article, I am compelled to mention something I always see and that makes no sense from the point of view of marketing online: you’re not on a social network, if not going to use either .

also do not use social networks as «repeaters» of what you count in one; It ie that not post the same content on each of your social networks . Each social network has a purpose and is used in a different way.

Here you have an item you clarify matters relating to the use of social networking companies.

Do not use pop-ups

More than anything to add, this element is something you do not want you add: pop-ups (pop-ups).

not going to delve into this subject, but the pop-ups are very annoying and, except for certain cases to specific strategies, generate more rejection than acceptance.

Tools to set the page Coming in WooCommerce

As today a web page can be constructed in various ways, will make a brief summary of the tools you need to create your page Coming in WooCommerce :

Page Builder Plugin Manager Newsletters +

If you read my article on Beaver Builder, I know what I love having this Page Builder (even more than Elementor or Divi), many things that I will not now explain (for that you have to read the article).

But use the Page Builder you use, the functionality is the same: Coming soon set up a page in a very easy way, with «click and drag » or ready-made templates for your own plugin.

In this way, you have the ability to change the content in a very fast way (or your client to change it) and add the items mentioned elsewhere in this article, necessary for your page.

and to configure the manager newsletter (in my case Mailchimp), simply use its official plugin and then incorporate the Page Builder to your page.

HTML Template Manager configuration Newsletters

If you looked at a HTML template specific, and do not want to spend money on a Page Builder (or just do not like for any reason whatever), is a very good choice.

There are templates in HTML (without using WordPress) that are valid for use as soon pages.

course, require some knowledge of HTML, CSS and some JavaScript, but if you have that knowledge … I can say Mass, you’ll know what you’re up perfectly.

In this case, to incorporate Manager Newsletter you use, we must do it in a more technical way, but equally simple.

Plugin for specific pages «Coming Soon» (or soon)

There are some plugins (I mention below) that directly what you «manage everything.»

are responsible for generating an interface in which, from the options panel, upload the different items you need, and the click on an almost wonderfully magic button, you leave everything ready on what your visitors will see.

will have to have handy access to your manager Newsletters, because it will require equally certain technical data to «use» your favor.

practical case with Page Builder

A the same as always says one of my favorite comedians, now it say, «Do not say, I do.»

So I’ll show you in the next video how to create a Coming Soon page in WooCommerce with Beaver Builder and how to connect with MailChimp.

Case with Plugin

In this almost last section of the article, this time I’ll show you how to set page Coming in WooCommerce with a very famous plugin, which is most commonly used for this type content.

Specifically, the plugin is called Coming Soon Page & Maintenance Mode (by SeedProd) and analyzed in the following video:

And after setting … What do you do?

And because not everything ends with the creation of the page Coming in WooCommerce (rather, it all starts), I want to give some hints of things you can do once your site is made:

to campaign social networking

If you already have made the website soon, what do you expect to generate what the English say « Buzz» (noise) on social networks?

is the best time to start attracting visitors to the web, and get future customers.

Manage emails and create a good email marketing campaign

A arriving these future prospects of social networks (or organic search on Google), will begin to increase the chances of getting your emails (as they will be interested what you’re going to throw).

is the perfect time to have already designed email marketing campaign, careful not to spam , and optimizing much whatever you want to communicate.

analyze visits with Google Analytics

Both visits social networks, ads on Google, as well as own email marketing campaigns will have some information that may be useful you.

The best is to use Google Analytics on your website, and analyze all views you have on your page.

Conclusions

In this article I have explained why it is crucial that you have a page soon for your online WooCommerce store and the items you have to have.

In addition, depending on the tools you want to use, you can build this page with Page Builder, a template, or a plugin to do it for you.

Once achieved your goal, it does not end there : you have to move the page on social networks, and make email marketing campaigns, analyzing all visits your site.

see, a simple page, becomes an experience for your business. Also will tell you if it generates interest in potential customers from the outset, thus, it is a «win-win» for you and for them.

hope you have been entirely clear, and you have served and motivated to generate your own page soon.
