When I read your first post I thought you were just going to put up a coming soon page 'like' the example link you gave. I agree with Wayan that if you're going to put actual content on the page then do that. Just don't put up a page with zero content that says coming soon.
All joking aside, the help you get in the forum is best if you use the answers to your questions to figure out how to do a lot of the things on your own. That way you self educate and move ahead a lot faster.
Please post your website when it's finished so we can see what you built.
Thanks again for weighing in! The Coming Soon placeholder will have a paragraph about my company, a field for interested parties to submit their email addresses for more info, and possible social media links. Hopefully that will be enough to prevent the situation you originally described!
I already built my first website using CC's RLM--self-education was definitely a big part of the process and the simple site took me forever! Unfortunately, I lost it when the hard drive on my new laptop imploded before I had a chance to backup what I'd created. I am now trying to rebuild using some of these newer tools. Given my first experience, I know it's going to take a long while to educate myself and build but, as you mentioned, that's the way forward!
I'll definitely post a link to the website if I succeed! Thanks again.
