A One Page Website

A One Page Website

Many of us are feeling an economic pinch during these troubled times. Sometimes, we have to pivot into new ventures or side gigs to make ends meet. 

One way to get your business found online is to develop your Google business profile fully. Please see my article:  How do I  direct traffic to my website-for free  for a step by step explanation. 

You can create an account for free on Google my Business. From there, you can add essential information, such as:

  • Your contact number
  • A link to your website
  • Your business hours
  • Any health and safety measure
  • Directions (automatic)

You can also share:

  • Photos
  • Your logo
  • Posts
  • Special offers
  • Events
  • Excerpts from your blog with links back to your website

You can showcase your:

  • Products
  • Services
  • Attributes: LGBTQ+ friendly; Transgender safe space; Black, Latino, Woman, Veteran owned
  • Showcase reviews- it’s ok to ask your customers or clients for reviews. Google even provides a link you can email.

You can also respond:

  • Respond to reviews
  • Post answers to frequently asked questions
  • Send and receive direct messages
  • Depending on your business, you can add special features. For example, restaurants and events spaces can add featured menus, take online food orders and let customers make reservations.

You may also want to add a landing page or a one page website that is built for conversions and goes into more depth explaining who you are, how you can solve your clients’ pain points, and more features including calls to action and means of contact. We build landing pages ( featuring a specific conversion) AND one page websites.

Record Label

I created a site for Azure Music, a Chicago based record label that will be featuring blues, rock, R&B, funk, and hip-hop artists. In the years to come, the site can be scaled to accommodate a growing roster of artistic talent. I used primal colors, like red, black, white and blue to highlight the artists and the music. The site is responsive, SEO optimized and links to the recording artists’ store as well as to Amazon, where their CDs are sold.

Music Magazine

A Digital Music Magazine

I created Blues Today, a digital music magazine with reviews, news, video and soundstage performances. Blues Today was created to promote Chicago based musicians with roots in the blues but will feature rock, R&B, funk, soul, hip-hop and more. I not only created multiple pages to showcase the musicians and bands, but wrote the content, did interviews and reviews. As usual, I created the on-page search engine optimization.
