How to Create a One Page Website Template in WordPress

Creating a website is a lot of work, and it usually takes a lot of time. Even then, you might not like what you initially created because it wasn’t what you had in mind when you started. The good news is you can use the same basic concepts to create a one-page website template in WordPress. This blog post will give you an overview of how to create a one-page website template in WordPress so you can get started right away.

The Basics

WordPress is a free, open-source content management platform that allows you to build and showcase websites quickly and easily. One of the best parts of WordPress is that you don’t necessarily need to know how to code to build a website using it – all you need is a working knowledge of WordPress (which you can learn from the WordPress Academy).

On the front-end, your one-page website will be represented by a series of WordPress pages with a common header and footer. The header and footer — along with the content in between — will be what’s known as a WordPress page, or, simply, a page.

On the back-end, you’ll see a single WordPress page with a list of posts (blog articles) showing up in a blog, with a few extra options like FAQs and terms of use.

On the surface, creating a one-page website template in WordPress may seem daunting, but it’s actually a very simple process. Let’s jump into it.

The Fundamentals Of Building A One-Page Website

The first step is to find a good domain name for your website. A domain name is akin to a URL (uniform resource locator) for a website. Instead of having to remember a long web address to reach your website, you can use a domain name to easily identify and reach the website you’re creating. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you must be able to easily remember the name of your website. If you can’t remember it, it’s probably best to pick a more generic name.

The second step is to install WordPress on a web server. A web server is a computer program that allows websites to be hosted or displayed online. Many web servers are bundled with hosting plans from companies like Bluehost, but you can download a free web server from (the home of WordPress).

Once you’ve got WordPress installed, you’ll need to create a new WordPress user with administrator privileges. An administrator is a user with special permission to make changes to the WordPress platform. As an administrator, you’ll be able to change the appearance of your WordPress site, as well as add new pages, posts, and menus to it. You don’t need to worry about having special permissions to make changes to WordPress — any user can access and make changes to the platform.

With your WordPress user account created, you can begin building your site. On the front-end of your WordPress site, you’ll see a number of pages; each of these pages represents one of your site’s’sections.’ A section represents a curated collection of content that will be showcased on one page of your website. Each section will consist of a header, a footer, and a series of content items — most typically, blog posts.

The footer will contain a small bit of text followed by some links to other pages or blog posts on your site. The header will contain a large image that serves as an icon for your site (known as a favicon), as well as some text.

Within each section of your one-page website, you’ll want to include a minimum of three blog posts. A blog post is a short piece of content (generally between 400 and 600 words) that focuses on a singular topic. When creating your blog posts, make sure to choose a topic that will be of interest to your target audience.

Organizing Your Blog Posts For Ease Of Reading

When reading through the blog posts in your section, you should see a clear flow — one that is easy to follow. To achieve this, you’ll want to split your posts into two distinct categories: the first containing a summary of the post’s content and the second being the original article. By doing this, you’ll make it much easier for your visitors to find what they’re looking for, and it’ll improve the overall readability of your blog posts.

Splitting your content into summary and original articles is a pattern used across the web and works really well for longer articles. You can use free software like Summify to automatically summarize the content of your blog posts without losing any of the original details. By using a tool like Summify, you’ll be able to take a bit of the drudgery out of writing blog posts — allowing you to get back to what’s important to you, which is creating a good user experience and promoting your products or services.

Building The Necessary Backlinks

Backlinks are links placed on other websites that point back to your website. A backlink may appear in a number of places, but it usually appears at the bottom of a post, either near the footer or in the form of a button linking to more content. The importance of backlinks cannot be stressed enough. When working with a digital marketer, helping them build backlinks for your site can be a lucrative (and much-needed) engagement.

To build backlinks, you’ll need to create high-quality content — whether that’s a fully fledged blog post, or an e-book, or a whitepaper — that is of value to your target audience. When choosing affiliate products to promote, make sure to pick products that are of value to your target audience. This will mean that you’re more likely to convert your audience into paying customers – and therefore, generate more affiliate sales for your business.

Setting Up Your Blog As An Online Store

If you’ve decided to set up your own blog, you’ll want to consider turning it into an online store. An online store is a website that sells products (primarily digital and consumer goods) directly to the consumer. It is an ideal platform for selling physical products like books or clothing, as well as digital products like apps, themes, and plugins. When choosing this route, you’ll want to make sure to pick a payment processor that is accepted by the majority of potential customers.

Running an online store from a blog is very easy to do. You can use tools like Shopify to quickly and easily set up an online store that you can manage from anywhere.

As for products you’ll want to promote as an affiliate marketer, there are numerous digital and physical products you can choose from. When setting up your blog as an online store, you’ll want to make sure to choose products that are relevant to your target audience. This way, you’re much more likely to convert your audience into paying customers – and therefore, generate more affiliate sales for your business.
