Tools for your Landing Page
Posted on Monday, Jan 3, 2022 by
When it comes to building a landing page there are many options available and there is more than just creating the page itself. For example colors, icons, analytics, etc.
Let's go one by one.
Creating a Landing page
To build the landing page there are many options. Besides the ones below I also need to include ( in case you know how to code) pure HTML + CSS and JS webpage. If you can build a page fast and know what you want I think it's a good solution. But if you don't know how to code or you are in a hurry, I think there are better solutions.
Other that I also need to include is Wordpress. In my opinion, it feels a bit like overkill and it might not be the best for the speed of the page, but again if you are good with Wordpress and like it, go for it.

The short version is that Indie Worldwide is a slack channel but Indie Worldwide is much more than that. It's a full community of people like you that are creating or want to create something.
In that slack channel, there is a part where you can put the link to your landing page and wait for comments. The best part is that most of these comments are useful and will make you see your landing page with different eyes and you feel ready to make some changes.
