Under Construction Page Plugin for WordPress

The Under Construction Page Plugin saves #bloggers embarrassment when their site is down

Have you ever had problems with your blog?

Of course you have; certainly, most of us have.

Some of the problems this site has attempted to solve are being locked out of your blog and having your writing plagiarized.

Today’s article addresses the following scenario:

You have been told successful bloggers have an email list. Building a list is crucial to any successful blog or business. Since building an email list is more important than ever, many bloggers start building their lists before they have even published any blog posts.

I have personally visited those sites and believed the sites were broken. Trying to help, I wrote one of the bloggers to apprise him just to render him embarrassed since he already knew he wasn’t ready for visitors.

The solution? An “Under Construction” page. If you are a WordPress user, this post will explain how you can benefit from an “Under Construction” page. The best part: getting and installing an Under Construction Page plugin is quick, easy, and free.

The above scenario is demoralizing. Here you’re trying to build a new blog and establish a reputation, just to be embarrassed when people try to access your site before it is ready.

Suppose these frustrated visitors write negative reviews about your site on social media and you have a negative reputation even before you’ve published your first article.

An Under Construction Page plugin prevents this awkward situation.

While it is entirely possible to build a custom maintenance page by yourself, it’s much easier to do with the help of a plugin.

Why You Should Use the Plugin

You have many choices of page designs.

  • You can personalize the name of the page. If you don’t want your page to say “Under Construction,” you have additional choices like “Maintenance Mode,” and “Coming Soon.”
  • Twelve designs are available to choose from. This helps you avoid a “canned” look from others who may also be using the plugin. The best part: new designs come out twice a month. I wanted to show you my current favorite, but I couldn’t decide since I like them all. The Under Construction Plugin helps bloggers while building their sites #bloggers #Blogging

These are nine of the current choices. Do you notice some are male and some female? Did you also notice if you just wanted straight text and no graphic, that’s available to you as well?

Personally, I find the page designs with the graphics extremely engaging. When you’re trying to attract return visitors, engagement is important.

If you don’t like any of these choices, they are customizable.

  • You can use social media icons to keep in touch with your audience even if you’re still working on the site. For example, if you are still designing your website, you can create a Coming Soon page with the plugin. Then, if someone visits your page, they can see a message that you’re still working on the site, but you can allow them to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and other media. The icons appear on the very bottom of the page.
  • Reviews are favorable. The Under Construction Page Plugin repeatedly received 5 out of 5 stars. The plugin already has over 100 positive reviews although the developers have only been involved with its production since late 2016.
  • The plugin is quick to install. Have you ever installed a plugin? It takes a minute.
  • What if you forget to uninstall the plugin? No problem. You can automatically set it to turn off on a certain date and time.
  • SEO options are available to ensure you don’t receive a Google penalty while building your site.

Testimonials

Excellent!
It just works! Not overly complicated like some other plug-ins. Just enough to display a choice of nice graphics and your own text.

      Hi Mike,
      I wanted to return the “blog love” and check out your site, but I don’t see a link. Are you currently building a blog? If so, this plugin is definitely handy. Thanks for your interest in my review. I appreciate your comments.

      Hi Marie,
      I visited your site. I tried to read your $5,000 per month post, but I was asked to sign in to WordPress, and I was already signed in. There is great interest in how to monetize. I’ve written about it often and plan to do so in the near future. Thanks for your interest in my plugin review.

    You get props for this post Janice.

    I won’t pretend that I’ve built hundreds of sites, but I have built my fair share, & man would this have come in handy. Trust me, this one’s getting filed away in the blog tools file for future use.

    I can’t believe that I’d never heard of the “under construction” plugin before…but thanks to you, now I have!

    Great job Janice! Color me impressed.
