In this case, it can be a simple landing page where you can collect visitors’ emails to notify them of your launch.

Launcher is 100% responsive and comes ready with a launch countdown timer. You also get an email subscriptions box to help grow your mailing list so you can launch your business with a bag. Dis I mention this template is free?
Mycountdown is an interesting coming template soon, but I am pretty sure that this one will not be for everyone. You get the big laboratory-style countdown time that takes up more than half the page. Honestly, I am a fan of this theme simply because it does leave you with some room to add a sales copy. If you just want a theme with an interesting timer then maybe this is one to consider.

Highlights of this theme are countdown timer, social integration and MailChimp email form included. I personally like the full-screen image displaandus the filterable portfolio section to help you show customers what you have to offer.

Caelus is an interesting one to consider because it has a drag and drop widget home page that allows you to incorporate other interesting elements in your site easily. It comes prebuilt with two different colour scheme to switch between, you also get a range of beautiful fonts to add further character. If you use MailChimp, then you will be happy to here that it is supported on this theme without any extra plugins.
xTime is a clean and modern construction WordPress theme that is simple and straight to the point. Highlights of this theme are the ability to set full-screen background images or even a video background to show maybe a behind the scene on goings. You also have the option to display a countdown timer date that will give users an idea of when to revisit your site.
Aitasi – Under Construction Page
If you want to add a bit more detail to your coming soon page, then you might want to consider Aitasi. This theme is like all the features you will need and a bit more, you get the countdown timer, subscription form, contact form and more. You will also be happy to hear that Google font is also integrated to give more flexibility regarding personalization.
Felice takes a different approach to the normal countdown timer; it uses a progress bar that is very visual appealing. What I love must about this theme besides it being free is that it is very well laid out. You get room to tell your story and a good place opt-in form. I urge you to try at least it out, it does have by default a feminine scheme that is editable.
