Making a welcome page in my custom artisteer theme

I am using artisteer and I have been trying hard to make a landing page. Example of welcome were the members land and then a register page I am already creating a welcome page in artisteer theme . I am very pretty knowledgeable of how buddypress is integrating with my theme and what a slug is.I have been reading the wpmudev post at this link.
Would this be best to fallow for making such.
