Our Thoughts
Launch Effect Premium is a quality WordPress theme for creating a professional and attractive pre launch page to promote your new product, service, app or website.

Installation and setup was very easy. After uploading the theme via the WordPress admin theme uploader and making a few basic teaks as advised in the provided instructions, it was up and ready to go.

The backend options panel is slick, has lots of options and is quite intuitive and easy to use. All the titles, text, links etc for the launch page are managed in the options panel. The extensive selection of fonts, colours pickers, layout, and style options in the options panel made it quick and easy to create a unique design. You can control and customise all the important aspects of the design without needing to dig into the code.

The inbuilt social sharing, unique URL creation, and tracking features are great and probably the best features of the theme. Being able to track visits, conversions and conversations rates, and the potential to use those functions and data to incentivise and reward active referrers are really nice features.

Launch Effect is currently a very solid product, and still in development with even more features planned to be added as listed in the roadmap above. At $35 for a single license and $65 for an unlimited license, which includes lifetime updates and support, it really is very good value for money and a great tool for launching your new product, service or website.
