Splash page is a cool way to showcase special offer or content of your website, but it can also affect user experience if setup in a wrong way. If we can set it up quickly and elegantly, then we are all set to nourish results from it.
Here I’m compiling best free WordPress splash page plugins that you can use from day one and try increasing user engagement. These plugins can be used to either showcase special content of your website or also to create a special landing page to encourage product sale. In either way, doing the same thing via coding isn’t that easy (I’m counting you as a non-developer) so we got our best option, Plugins.
The options I’m going to share are all free and being used by at least thousands of users. But still you need to check them on your own as there are many things you should consider before installing any plugin.
Certain requirements you need to check before using this specific niche of the plugin is that it should offer elegant user interface and should support different types of media content. Call to Action section should be properly designed and functioning.
Note that you’re taking a kind of risk by implementing a splash page on WordPress driven website. It can make or break point, in any case. If you’re not sure how to setup a landing page then better learn related things before making playing with bare hands.

Best Free WordPress Splash Page Plugins
So let us start with the compilation and I’m going to add all free options. There are also premium options available offering better features, so you can go for them if any of these below mentioned free ones isn’t covering your requirements.
#1 Ultimate Coming Soon Page
The first plugin is being installed over millions of time, and it comes with features like custom CSS & HTML, translation ready, multisite support, BuddyPress compatible, Feedburner integration, and lots of customization. It supports multiple websites driven by WordPress script and works with almost any theme.
The kind of customization being allowed to tackle with colors, images, logos and fonts can change the whole look and feel of the splash page you’re about to develop. It supports all known media content formats and compatible with cross-browsers.
These all were the part of free version while you can even upgrade to its pro one that will bring additional features and improved performance. The only downside I found is that the full screen browser option is only available with pro version.
#2 WP Splash Page
If you wish to add an age verification page that can stop users from accessing the content of your website otherwise, then start using this WP Splash Page plugin. You don’t need to pay anything for any of its features, and it can add that age verification by following certain easy steps.
#3 WordPress Landing Pages
The Visual Editor is the main highlighting feature of this next plugin we have. This option can let you customize a lot of thing on the live mode (just before saving it). It can create beautiful landing pages where you can even share any kind of media content or normal text.
Apart from just basic page creation tools, it comes with an in-built analytic tool that can record conversions and related data that you can use to increase ROI and performance. It can also let you develop and show different pop-up forms that can further increase user engagement.
#4 Easy Landing Pages
This particular plugin can let you create lead generation pages, squeeze pages, sales pages, landing ones or even coming soon pages. You can even run a contest on the first page with which readers interact. The UI of the tool at Dashboard is simple enough to get used to with the whole interface and learn to do all possible things.
The whole script is customizable fully and you can even tweak the HTML and CSS code to add further any improvement at per your requirement. This particular feature (offering full freedom to developers) is the one that makes this plugin a cool player.
#5 WP Lead Plus Free Squeeze Page Creator
It’s the last option that comes in two versions, free and pro (paid). The free one covers almost every needed feature and option to develop a page that can display ‘Coming Soon’ status or can even handle a lead creation layout. It comes integrated with email notifications and an auto-responder feature that is again helpful in case of the landing page.
Easy logo creation, customization and flexible background option are also there to offer you tweak the design elements easily. I won’t spoil the surprise further and recommend you to try it out.
Over to You
The final decision is pending in the court owned by you, and there is no hurry in taking a decision. I recommend (as always) to test individual plugins you’ve finalized on test blogs before using them on your money tree.
Once you find everything Ok, then use it to develop either a Splash page or landing page. In either way, you need to make sure that the content being offered on the page is cool enough to keep users engage otherwise they will bounce back to the previous page, adding a bad signal to SEO status of your blog. Good luck.
