One of the hottest trends in web design is to present a business and tell on a story on a One-Page website (also referred to as a “Single-Page website” and “One-Pager”).
What is a One-Page Website?
A One-Page website engages visitors. Conveying your message in an intuitive and easy way that yields higher conversion rates than any other type of online presence.
The potential customer follows the story by simply scrolling down the page. Which, by the way, is the natural thing to do on the web and especially on handheld devices. This seamless experience propels site visitors along a single path: TO ACT!
The Single-Page format encourages the website owner to present the essence of the business story into one page without the usual distractions and clutter of additional pages, multiple columns, pop-ups, sidebars and more.
YOUR MESSAGE & STORY TAKE CENTER STAGE.
