Problems and Solutions
It is common that a store site has some technical problems or has some new updates so it needs terminating for a while to fix or upgrade. During this time, it is necessary to inform customers about the current site maintenance and comfort them while they cannot access temporarily.
It is quite rude when one day visitors come to your site and find it not working without no reason notification. Therefore, the maintenance page with clear explanation and sincere apology shows the delicacy of stores and the respect to your customers.
Coming Soon Page works as the entrance to a new thing upcoming at the store site. It makes customers feel more curious and excited to follow and wait for the launching date. Therefore, it is important to make visitors impressed with the appearance of the Coming Soon Page.
With an appealing message and a subscription section, Coming Soon Page can become the box to collect customer's information. For example, “please leave your name and your email, we will email you when the site goes live”.
If you are a product creator, you obviously want to know if your product will have success or not. So, a coming soon page can actually help you test your idea.
Coming Soon page can become the place to motivate sales for upcoming products/ services by offering visitors coupons via email which they have provided on the page. And definitely, when customers receive a discount, they will be much more concerned about the upcoming products and tend to come back when the site goes live.
Coming Soon page and Maintenance page redirection
When stores have any updates on the store site, it is necessary to calm down customers for their impatience during their waiting moments. The best choice is redirecting them to a new destination called Coming Soon Page or Maintenance Page.
Magento 2 Coming Soon Page is ideal for the new things upcoming such as a new product, new service, new deals or any promotional campaigns. Meanwhile, when a page is under construction or upgradation, Maintenance Page will support properly.
Depending on each situation, an e-commerce site should use two supportive pages appropriately.
Ready-to-use countdown timer during maintenance
Not to make customers confused about launching time, Magento 2 Maintenance extension provides a countdown timer to comfort customers.
Depending on the end date time, the running clock will reveal how much time remaining before the live site appears. Customers will feel clear and take note to come back as the time schedule.
There are 5 clock styles are available with beautiful design styles named Simple, Circle, Square, Stack and Modern. Store admins can pick one and apply instantly to Maintenance Page or Coming Soon Page with ease. Especially, these clock styles are customizable so admins can change the clock background color, clock number color to match well with store themes if necessary.
Subscribe or social contact to maintain customers’ connection
Another outstanding feature of Better Maintenance module is the Call-to-Action functions - Subscription or Social Share.
On Maintenance/ Coming Soon Page, a subscription section is placed to collect customer information. Visitors who are concerned about the store will not hesitate to leave their emails to be contacted later. Noticeably, admins can customize the subscription form’s content and color in an appropriate way to motivate customers.

In both pages, it is easy to pick a layout - single column, double columns or double columns with left-side content. Besides, the page title, page description, text color is totally custom-made. To make the page more lively, an image or a video can be uploaded to work as the page background.
Especially in the Maintenance Page, to update customers about upgradation situation, the Progress value bar is added to estimate the maintenance progress of the store site.
