Project Type: WordPress Landing Page Design
Ah, the simple one-page website. They might not be the best option for SEO, but when it comes to simplicity, they sure do take the cake. Sometimes you don’t need a full-blown website right away. It’s an overkill and it just turns into a headache…and this project was the perfect example of why.
Let me explain:
Kristen, the founder of Glory Awaits is in the midst of building a community of like-minded glory getters. She’s in the process of working out her business plans, but she needed a website to refer people to, as she refines the details on her products and offerings. She’s getting involved in her local community, creating bracelets, and handing out cards….aka spreadin’ that glory around.
She came to me because she needed some kind of solution for an online presence, but wasn’t ready to go all in on a full-blown website yet. She just needed a platform to send people that she meets and connects with too, so they can get a full idea of the Glory Awaits Community.
SO, I presented her with the customized landing page solution.
Creating a single-page website like this one is an AWESOME way to test and tweak your idea before committing to a full website design. As long as you make sure that you nail down a few core elements on the landing page, (like Google Analytics so you can start collecting data, email sign up, and clearly organized information about you and your business/project) so you can start testing and tweaking ideas and strategies without having the pressure of a full website to manipulate. Once Kristen narrows down her direction and goals, we’ll combine those with her website data to build a POWERHOUSE of a website that is strategically built for both her business and her community.
But don’t take my word for it, check out what Kristen said:
“OMG, you are a web wizard. I started to think it would just never be possible to organize the creative chaos and craziness in my brain until you did it with a one-page template one-page in my notebook, then brought it all to life. This feeling is invaluable. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the website already. Thank you so so so so much! Looking at it helps keep my brain organized and keeps my direction clear and focused. It’s the perfect foundation for my growing community. I seriously can’t thank you enough!!“
