Do you have lots of time to review a website you land on?
Well, the same probably goes for your sites viewers.
Website visitors don’t have the time to read endless content to determine if they will stay longer than the 3 second rule or bail out. A one page website offers a fast, clear experience and if done correctly, the site will have intuitive scrolling, have a mobile friendly web design and finally, deliver the site owner the required results.
Having a one page website is an excellent option for many types of businesses, but it’s not a perfect solutions for all.
Is the One Page Website Right For You?
Before diving into a lengthily and costly website development project, its worthwhile understanding what would be best for you. Below are some tips on how to make this decision.
When is the One Page Website the right choice?
In short, A one page website is a great choice if you don’t have lots of content or if the content is closely related, such as:
Small business that sells only a few products or a service
Single product e-commerce site
Campaign-specific landing page
Freelancer or resume page
One time events (such as weddings and conferences)
Times when A One Page Website isn’t a good choice:
If the websites content is heavy or complicated. In this case, a one page website probably isn’t the way to go.
Is a One Page Website, really just 1 page?
Yes and No.
A one page website can include a number sections, but they will all be the same in regards to SEO attributions.
Your website visitor may click on something that caught their attention and then be sent to a different part of the page that offers more information on that specific item they looked at.
To the visitor it will simulate moving to a new page, but they will still have access to all the original page’s content by scrolling.
How much should a One Page Website cost?
As with all website design and development projects, much depends on the scope at hand.
That said, most businesses looking for affordable website designs, often don’t require a great deal of development and can have their very own, custom made, one page website for under £300.
For higher complex one page websites, the price may be a little higher, but still remain within an affordable development budget.
The key ingredient to building a well-functioning one page website is presentation.
As space is limited, it’s important to keep the Less is More approach, and fine tuning the main message you want to convey to the reader. The text size plays an important role too, as it must be easy to read and the content you add to the page, to be easy to digest and understand, with a clear call for action if this is needed for your business type.
Today, website visitors are bombarded with information, and most site visitors leave before really consuming the content. You need to ensure your visitors are able to quickly find what they expected to see, and for this to fulfill their need to which they visited your site.
The 5 W’s rule can help focus the pages efforts:
Who, are your visitors
What, are they looking for
Why, did they visit your page
When, is your content most relevant
Where, are your visitors located to read your content.
