What Can a One Page Website Do for You?

I have designed and developed one page websites since the mid '90s.  Those websites usually involved taking a printed flyer and migrating the information from the flyer to a very basic brochure style web page.  Times have changed and so have the type of one page websites that I design for my clients.  They range from full graphic websites such as to basic "flyer" web pages that allow a small business to have an Internet presence, get indexed by search engines, and be found by the 78% of shoppers who use the Internet to research and purchase products and services.* (see an example of a "flyer" one page website at

Why One Page?

  1.  A one page websites can allow your business or organization to have a fast, professional web presence.
  2. One page websites promote your business, organization, and products by providing potential customers and clients with the most relevant information they need to be motivated to contact you.
  3. Are you a start-up company? Home based business? New to promoting your business online?  Your one page website allows you to advertise just like larger companies and it can grow to more pages as your business grows.
  4. Many one page websites can be setup in an easy to use website builder to allow you to maintain the website in-house.
  5. If you have already purchased web hosting, but have yet to publish a website, a one page website can be easily uploaded to your current web host.
  6. One page websites are budget friendly.

My Top 5 Repinned Pins In Pinterest

(Say that title fast 5 times)

***This post originally appeared in my other blog (***

I thought it would be fun to take a moment and see what pins on Pinterest have been the most popular of all my 2,014 Pins.  I didn't join the world of Pinterest until mid-March 2013, and I admit that I am "mildly" addicted.

    Music/Internet related graphic  Sometimes people just want to read something that makes them smile and is light-hearted. This is my most repinned pin and most of those pinners did so within hours of this pin being added to my company board.

  2. Board: Ideas for a Suburban Garden

    Companion Planting Strawberries This popular pin surprised me.  I pinned it after I bought strawberry seeds for my oldest daughter.  I thought it would be a great way to start learning about container gardening.  I had also taken an interest in growing green peppers, and I wanted to know how compatible the two seeds are if grown together.  The website I pinned is full of great information.

  3. Board: Why I Love the West Coast

    Copyright belongs to original owner
    132 Things to Do in Sacramento  I was raised on the West Coast of the United States and still love it after being away for almost 20 years.  I lived most of the time in Sacramento and found this great page on tripadvisor's website.  This pin gets repinned just about every day.

  4. Board: Wheat Free, Corn Free, Soy Free Cooking

    Copyright belongs to original owner
    Cooking & Baking Gluten-Free: Xanthum Gum Substitutes This pin takes you to a great website with Gluten-Free cooking and baking tips.  The specific page I pinned discusses substitutes for xanthum gum, a popular ingredient used in GF baking.  My daughter has a corn allergy and xanthum gum is derived from corn so I wanted to learn if I could substitute that ingredient in my baking. You can!  This website explains how.
  5. Board: Kid's Hair Styles

    Copyright belongs to original owner
    Beads, Braids and Beyond: Updo Hairstyle I have 2 girls and I am always looking for cute hairstyles.  This updo is the 5th most popular pin of all my pins.  I have several pins from this website.  They have great photos and tutorials for doing various hairstyles.
