Get Leads Before You Launch With These “Coming Soon” Landing Pages

In our latest update to Thrive Landing Pages, we've added a new set of templates, including two "coming soon" pages.

Watch this quick video tour to see how to use these templates and how they will help you build your mailing list before you even launch your website.​


In the video, you'll discover:

  • The fastest way to access the 2 new page templates.
  • The logic behind the layout of the "coming soon" pages.
  • Examples of what to use these pages for (and what NOT to use them for).

Launch pages like these can play an important role in the idea of rapid implementation. If you haven't done so yet, check out this free mini-course for more on the topic.

​We hope you like the new templates and would love to know your thoughts about them.

    I’m using iphone6 and there is no video on the page forme to view

    • Dean P says:

      Worked fine on mine?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi David,

      That’s odd. The video should definitely show on any mobile device. I hope you managed to view the video from a different device, if it didn’t work on your phone.

      • David says:

        I saw it from my desktop. Good stuff. Thanks Shane!

      • Shane Melaugh says:

        Okay, good to know!

  • Kevin B says:

    I am throwing out other tools on a weekly basis lately! :-)
    Can’t stress how happy I am with your continued development.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you very much, Kevin! It’s great to know that you’re getting so much good use out of our plugins and feature updates. :)

  • John Naismith says:

    Shane, I have used a ‘coming soon’ theme in the past and this has prevented me from building the site unpublished.

    I currently use a plugin which allows me to build the site in the background.

    Is the use of your ‘coming soon’ landing page any different?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      These pages are simple templates and they will just display on whichever page you add them.

      We have plans for creating a coming soon and maintenance mode plugin, which will let you edit your site (as an admin) while all visitors will see the same coming soon or maintenance message. But it’s quite far back in our queue of plugins we want to release. The ones ahead of it are way cooler, though. :)

  • David C says:


    Another great addition that allows me to remove another plugin—Thanks so much!

    One question:

    Is it possible to make other pages of the site unaccessible when using this feature. When I use it as a “Coming Soon” page for my site, I notice my other pages (that I’m still working on) can still be accessed by putting their URLs into my browser. In would be nice to have other pages off-limits to a visitor. Perhaps they’re somehow redirected temporarily to the “Coming Soon” page when it’s turned on.

    This free plugin here has that feature, but it’s not nearly as nice looking as what you guys do:

    Thanks Shane!


    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Hi David,

      We don’t have such a feature yet, but we do want to build a plugin for that (see a comment further up). However, it will be a while before we create this plugin, because we’ve got a lot of more awesome plugins we want to release first. :)

  • Mark says:

    I’m not only so impressed with these incredible functions with which you’re spoiling us Shane, but what really amazes me, is your evident desire and constant brain-storming of what can you do NEXT to improve the Builder. It seems you’re always thinking and thinking more and more on continuously improving.

    THAT is what stands out to me, let alone your fantastic product itself.

    Thanks so much for your wonderful dedication!

    PS On your Frame page you used in the demo, although I do like that mauve-plum colour, can we change the background colour if we ever wanted to?

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      That’s exactly right, Mark. We are always looking for the next step. Our goal is to be industry leading and even industry defining, so we’re always looking ahead and trying to build the next big thing. :)

      The background in the Fame pages is an image with that gradient you see. We don’t have a gradient feature for background colors, but it’s something we might add at some point.

      • Mark says:

        Thanks for your reply Shane. The background gradient was certainly not a concern…I was just wondering that’s all, thus my inquiry.

        From what you have demonstrated, I’m very confident you WILL become an industry leader due to your evident tenacity, perseverance, devotion, drive and desire to always improve and innovate.


  • John Z says:

    I have to agree with Mark, Thrive is so much more than which theme will I use lol… let them eat dust.

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      I’m very happy to hear that. This was one of our goals with Thrive Themes from the outset: we want to go beyond just offering a couple of themes and plugins and add much more value for our customers.

  • Kristen W says:

    Incredible. Thanks so much, looking forward to all these sweet plugins! I love Thrive :)

    • Shane Melaugh says:

      Thank you very much, Kristen!

  • Best themes I used for my blogs.
    Excellent work Shane & Team.

    I want to collect emails on the Landing page. Suggest me best template and theme.
