All business should have a website. What kind do you need? One with multiple pages, or just one page? A one-page website is a good first start if you are new and on a low budget. It can be easily upgraded later as your needs and budget change.
One Page Website
What is a One Page website and how can it help your business? Well, simply put, its a website that consists of only one page, usually the home page. There can be different types of course, but usually, a one-page website consists of a Header and following sections. These sections can be whatever you want but they will typically follow with a big hero image, sections about services, a section about your company, your people, and information about how to contact you. See an example of a working one-page website by clicking on the image below:
If you have a nice brochure for your business, think of a one-page website as your brochure on the web. This is why one-page websites are typically nicknamed “brochure sites,” as they have a lot of the elements of a business brochure only unfolded all out on one page. Your one-page website could easily replace the cost of printing more brochures.
Obviously, one page websites are not for everyone, but there are a ton of reasons to use them if they are a possible fit for your business.
Easy To Use
All a user needs to know to navigate a single page is how to scroll. You could include menus or arrows, but you don’t have too, as the user could easily scroll up and down the page. This becomes most handy when the user is using a mobile device, like a smartphone.
Faster To Develop And Easy To Maintain
A well coded one-page website is going to be faster to develop, sometimes taking only days instead of weeks, enabling you to be able to get your site up and running in no time. It will be easier to maintain, as you will only have one page to update, and maybe not very often. It will be easier to just put up information, like a sale or coupon, and then take it down right away, without much help from your designer or developer.
You Page Loading Time Will Be Faster
Normally with a one-page website, the page speed will be faster, giving your visitors a better user experience. If you don’t load it up too much, I have seen some one-page sites that went on forever. They may as well have added more pages. A good one-page website should have a maximum of 6 sections. No one likes a slow website, right?
Easy To Organize
One page websites are easier to organize. Instead of having to put together pages and pages of content together, you can put it all on one page. Simply put, just copy your brochure information and your done!
Easy Way To Get Your Website Started
A lot of business struggle with not having enough content for a full-blown website with multiple pages. Maybe you are just starting out and don’t feel like you need a website just yet. A one-page website is an easy way to get your presence on the internet started with just your basic information; who you are, what you do, and how to contact you. Your Yellow Page ad on the net, if you will. You can always start with a one-page site and build it into a multi-page site later as your needs change.
Easy Way to Promote Your Product
If your business has a new product to announce, or you just want to promote an existing product you have. A one-page website is a great way to do that. Just make the whole website about that product, list the features, contact information on how to purchase the product. You could use this one-page website to promote additional products or services in the future. You would just change out all the information and your done!
Easy to Make Your Site Mobile Responsive
Every business needs a website presence on the web these days, as that’s where your potential new customer starts looking for goods and services. And, guess what, they are often times doing this search from some type of mobile device. So you want your website to be responsive on all mobile devices.
One page websites are great for this as they just stack all the sections on top of each other to be viewed on a mobile device.
