Do you need a website? Probably. Without a website it is almost impossible to compete with other companies. Still, a website requires an investment. One that you may not want to do because you don’t see the importance of a website to the success of your business. A one page website can be the solution for you. A professional website for little cost and effort, but which delivers the desired success.

As the term implies: a one-page website consists of 1 single page. More and more often you come across this kind of simplified websites. One pagers look fantastic and can be assembled within 1 day. So you can have a professional website in a short time. But a one page website has many more advantages:
An important feature of a one pager is the special user experience. Where the visitor determines his own “route” with a multi-page website, with a one pager you are responsible for what the visitor sees and when. A one page website can consist of all kinds of different elements. A standard one page layout might look like this:
Of course there is no fixed order and the layout of your website depends on your organization and wishes.
One page websites are suitable for different types of organizations and projects.
Temporary sale of a product or online course.
For creative organizations, speakers or personal trainers.
Simple business websites for painters, plumbers etc. One page websites are therefore actually suitable for 2 situations. First, if you need an additional website to promote a product or service. With a template for a one page website you have put together a simple website. In addition, a one pager is useful when you want to promote yourself or your organization online while limiting the costs for a website. One pagers are very suitable for personal websites or as an online business card.
Because a one page website consists of 1 single page, this type of website is not recommended if you have a lot of content or if you plan to expand your website in the short term.
Are one page websites well found in Google? That is a question we often get from entrepreneurs. An optimized one pager can actually be found just as easily as a comparable site with 5 pages. In other words, both 1-page and 5-page websites are not as strong as large websites with many pages, so they also rank less high in Google. Does your website really need to be found for different keywords? Then it is important that you continue to improve your website systematically and this also means creating new content. Do you think a one page website is actually enough for your company, but do you want to improve the findability of your website in Google? You can also link a blog to a one pager. In this way you keep 1 page for your service(s) or product(s) and at the same time you work on better findability. From the various blog posts you place links back to the homepage of your one page website.
If a good findability of your website is a requirement, this question can easily be answered: no. If findability is not important and you would like to start a website quickly, we can certainly recommend a one pager. In some cases, a one pager (incl. blog) is even enough for the long term. For example, if you only offer 1 product or service with few variations. However, most entrepreneurs will find that a one page website will not mean extra success for their company.
A one pager looks visually nice, but to really score well, 1 page is not enough. It is not only about your position in Google, but also the result that the website books with the visitor. A one pager is a good start, but to get more orders through your website, it is important to keep improving your website. When you start doing this, you will soon notice that it makes a big difference.
