Is A One Page Website For You?
We get many calls from new clients wanting an inexpensive website. Some of the reasons are because they want it simple, they want to spend less money, their business is small and feel they don’t need a website that has multi pages with links that are not suited for their business. Or they simply don’t have the content and are offering only one service or one product. A one page website design can be effective, scrolling is easier and there is a clear beginning, middle, and end. If your goal is to tell a story, sell one service or product then a single-page site can be natural choice and will still work as a selling tool for your business. One page website designs are also great for responsive design, displaying on all mobile devices smoothly and in a precise manner.
What Is A Single Page Website?
A one page website aims to provide the perfect amount of information needed for that particular business. A simple one page scroll site doesn’t have multi pages like: about, services, blogs, or a contact page) (a contact page is part of the overall design for a one pager, so the user can still have ways to contact you). It focuses on the information that is needed. The purpose of a website is to engage your visitors and communicate a specific message, to sell your services or product. If designed right, a one page website offers you greater opportunities to do just that. One page websites are not for everyone, but if you have the needs as mentioned above it could prove to be a great solution without the cost of a multi page website.
What Are Some Of The Benefits To A One Page Website?
User Engagement: Direct and informative, explaining what your company does and what it offers on a single page.
Content Flow: The flow of information is direct and to the point.
Cost and Timing: In a hurry? Need a website quick? A single-page website is much quicker to design and develop than a multi-page site. A single page website is also less expensive as there are less pages, less information, and less programming time. Multi-page websites take longer to design and develop because we need to include page-by-page designs and optimization. When we design a single page website we can create strong consistent design which leads to a more direct experience for users that are looking for the information they want quickly.
Mobile Devices: One-page websites are much easier to optimize for mobile devices, and are easy to scroll without having to toggle back and forth to other pages for unnecessary information.
It’s Okay To Be Different.
One-page websites are growing in popularity as they are less expensive, direct, and will stand out in the crowd if designed right. The best way to decide if they are right for your business is by carefully analyzing your needs. Ask yourself: what exactly do you want to accomplish with your online presence?
