Did you ever had a project that wasn’t quite finished yet, but you wanted to have something simple to show for, until it got ready? Capturely.com offers you exactly that – with the added bonus of collecting the emails of the people interested to hear about the big launch event.
You can choose between several templates available for the “Coming soon” webpage, and you have direct access to the site’s CSS. Prices start at $5 monthly for one page or $15 monthly for up to 7 coming soon pages.
The site is great for validating ideas before starting to work on them. If you have several ideas, you can make a Capturely coming soon page for each one of them, then send some traffic or advertisement towards them and see which one takes off by capturing more emails interested about their launch event. In this way it can be avoided to work for something that nobody is interested in using.
The domain got launched in October 2010 and had several thousands unique visitors in November 2010 but afterwards it seems the traffic dried up according to Compete. There are minor comebacks at the beginning of this year but nothing serious; personally I like the idea and I hope the app catches on.
