1-Page Websites; a Quick Solution for Start-Ups and Low-Budget Companies
If you own a company and need a budget website as soon as possible, but you don’t need any unique feature on your website, the solution is the “1-Page website”.
What is the 1-Page website?
“1-Page website” is a website that doesn’t have any inner pages. It means all the data will be shown on the homepage. Instead of creating inner pages for contact us in such websites, about us and other information, sections would be made on a single page. It can include a slider, contact us, about us, contact form, appointment schedule, food menu (for restaurants), list of services or products and so on. Although there are some limits to these kinds of websites, there are some advantages which we will be discussed in this article. Here you can find some example of 1-Page websites:
What are the advantages of a 1-Page website?
First of all, it is quick! So, if you are in a hurry or have a deadline for your website, it can be a good option. Because there are no inner pages, it reduces the timeline of the project significantly.
Secondly, its cost is much lower than a typical website. Time is money, so when it takes a shorter time to finish the project, it means that it costs you less. If your budget is low or you are a start-up, you should consider 1-Page websites.
Third, 1-Page websites are more likely to be with no errors in different issues such as responsiveness, security, contents, links. The reason is so apparent because all the focuses are on a single page, so rarely you can find a mistake on it.
What are the disadvantages of a 1-Page website?
The first disadvantage to mention is its limits. On a 1-Page website, there are many limits. For example, if you need to sell something on your website, it is impossible to do it with a single page. Or if you have many services to show, it is better to have a categorized page.
Secondly, its SEO would be much more challenging. Since it is a single page, there are no blogs and posts on the website, and it isn’t easy to work on the keywords without that. Bear in mind that Websima DMCC offers a “1-Page website + Blog” as a special offer to solve this issue which will be discussed later in this article.
Third, it decreases the “Dwell Time” of your website. “Dwell Time” is the time that the user will be on your website before he returns to the search engine. Since your website has only 1-page, it reduces the chance that a visitor surf your website, and it decreases the Dwell Time consequently.
For which companies “1-Page websites” are recommended?
Till now, we have discovered that what is a 1-Page website and what are the advantages and disadvantages of such a website. But the question is, who can have a 1-Page website?
First, we remove some categories from our list. If you want an eCommerce website, forget about the 1-Page website. If you are a big company with different sections to be displayed on your website, forget about the 1-Page website. If you need a platform to connect your employees or customers, you shouldn’t apply for a 1-Page website.
On the opposite, If you have a small company with a limited budget or a start-up that is not internet-based, a 1-Page website is a good solution.
1-Page websites are also helpful for some retails such as restaurants (to show the menu only and not to order online), Barbershops even with an online appointment, and service-based retails such as printing, Technical repair services, car washes and car garages.
In general, if you believe that you can fit your company data on a single page, it means that it can be an option for you; otherwise, it is better to go for a typical website.
