One-Page Websites for Personal Branding

personal brandPersonal branding has become increasingly important in our online-focused world, and as a result, more and more web platforms such as About.me have sprung up to help people put their best foot forward online.

One thought on “One-Page Websites for Personal Branding

  1. Bob Kruse says:

    All of these themes are great, but simply buying a fancy theme can only go so far… in my opinion, at least. I suppose maybe a normal person will never know the difference, but nothing is more tacky to me than someone whose “professional” website is just a base WordPress theme with nothing but the placeholder text changed (and sometimes they didn’t even change some of that!). You should really take these themes as a starting place, and then customize them heavily so that 1. they reflect you/your brand, and 2. so that it’s not apparent which WordPress theme you’re using.
