1. Select a template for a single-page website.
You’ll need a template with the fundamental features of a one-page website, such as an anchored menu, social bar, and rich footer, as well as strips and columns, if you want to get off to the correct start.
Any type of business can use one of the hundreds of one-page website templates that our designers have produced.
Advice: Pick a pre-made blank semantic section and edit it to fit the requirements of your website. The newest Editor from Wix will integrate it with the aesthetic style of your website for a unified and polished appearance.
2. Create a content strategy.
The first step in developing the structure of your website is to carefully arrange all of your information so that it presents a logical and understandable narrative to visitors.
Consider the path your visitors will take as you start building a hierarchy for your website. Put your most important messages “above the fold” to grab their attention before they scroll down your page, and then arrange the rest of your material in priority order.
Every website must have an About page and a section with specific contact information. The information you want and need to give visitors after that will depend on you. In between, there may be your offering, a part introducing the team, services and goods, client testimonials, a FAQ section, and a photo gallery.
Keep material as orderly as you can while designing your website to support the layout. Keep the language succinct and eliminate any unnecessary material.
3. Employ scroll effects
Although many website designs may appear to be somewhat one-dimensional, the finest one-page websites incorporate features like parallax scrolling to grab users’ attention and increase their engagement. As the viewer scrolls down your website, the background and foreground layers appear to move at different speeds, giving the impression that the scene is three-dimensional.
4. Create a menu with anchors to connect each component.
Instead of linking to a separate page, each item on a one-page website menu points to a different portion of the same page.
You must establish your divisions and use anchors to accomplish this. An anchor menu can be made in three steps:
Add an anchor: Anchors, which can be the items on your menu list, allow viewers to simply navigate to a specific section of your single-page website. Although many themes already have anchors included, you can rename, rearrange, or even remove them to suit your needs.
Link the menu on your website to the anchor: This enables readers to access the specific section of your page where the anchor was placed. Make sure that each item in your menu list is linked to the appropriate anchor, or area, of your website.
Order from the menu: For convenience of use, the sections of your menu should appear in the same sequence. For instance, if your menu is horizontal, the first item—say, let’s “About”—should line up with the first section, which is called “About,” and so on. Given that one-page websites frequently need extensive scrolling, you should “freeze” your menu to keep it available at all times. If your menu is in the header, you may either construct a floating anchor menu or turn on the “Freeze Header” button to permanently fix it to the top.
