One page document, as the name suggests, is a one-pager that provides an overview of your company, product, or services in a visually appealing manner. It is a powerful layout, useful in advertising a business or giving a brief synopsis of the topic concerned. It’s like a one-page pitch of your company or a new-age brochure that is short, crisp, and to-the-point. 


In short, a one page document displays the core details-offerings, plans, and unique characteristics- attractively packaged into a single page!

Why are One Page Documents Important? 

The ultimate goal of a one page document is to SELL and communicate. By giving the reader a holistic view of the product, service, person, or business, they aim to capture their attention with little to no effort.


Their short, crisp, and to-the-point approach spur the readers into action- encourages them to go through the entire thing. 


Here are a few benefits of an exceptional one page document:


1. Time Saver 

The biggest and most profound advantage of a one page document is its ability to save time and put it to judicious use. It is the main reason why a one page document exists in the first place. It saves high profile readers time and piques their interest from the get-go.


Your readers are busy people and time is the most important asset for them, that they don’t want to spend on reading a 100-page document. A shot, crisp, and handy tool is what they need; everything that a one page document provides for!


2. No-fluff, only good-stuff 

A one page document combines everything ranging from facts, graphics, charts, timeline, and photos into a single page layout that keeps the audience engaged. By consolidating everything and presenting it in a single layout, they act as attention-grabbing tools with all the good-stuff highlighted. 


3. Easily Shareable

One page documents are built around the understanding of value, risk, outcome, viability, and opportunity all clubbed into one. Since they contain all the relevant information, they are ideal for sharing via social media channels and with the readers to get an extensive view. 

4. Great training tools 

One page documents are a marketing staple, but in recent years, they have also made their way into classroom teaching as the best pedagogic tools available. 


5. Communication Machine 

One page documents are short, feedback friendly, and easily consumable documents that are ideal to communicate the insights, data, information, and beliefs behind potential bets. Their goal is to encourage cross-functional collaboration, thus making them great tools to communicate your message across. 


6. Inject Personality 

One page documents being collaborative inject life into a dull and boring page and make it visually attractive. They are forward-thinking layouts that are definitely not average looking, rather are fun and modern in every sense!


Turns out it is hard to find the perfect one-pager document having the right balance between capturing the reader's attention and providing them with relevant information. If you are also facing this issue, worry no more! We have a bunch of easily editable and professional one page documents that will compel your readers to take action right away!

How To Easily Edit Our One Page Documents: 

No design skills? No problem! Here is a step-by-guide to download and edit the designs by yourself so that you can forget about hiring designers or fiddling with complicated design software. All you need is 5 minutes of your time and you are all set to sweep the readers off their feet! 


1. Edit the Text 

After downloading, the one-pager is yours and you can tailor all its elements including the text. Simply select the text placeholder with dummy content and replace it with your information. It is also possible to delete the text placeholder altogether if you wish to do so.

2. Edit the Data

The best form of data visualization is to use creative charts and graphs. These one-pages contain multiple charts and graphs that are data-driven making it highly convenient for you to modify them as per your need. Our designers have tried their level best to balance all the charts and graphs so that you make as many amendments in them as you like. Let us walk you through the steps of modifying the stats and data in these one page documents:


Edit the Bar Chart


To change the bar chart, place your cursor over the chart you want to change. Click on the filter icon, and select Values> Select Data. The Excel sheet containing all the default values will open that you can change as per your liking. 


Click on the Filter option

Here is another example of changing the data in a bar chart. To change the data in any creative bar chart simply ungroup the elements, right click, and select Edit Data. The Excel spreadsheet with all the default values will open, which you can modify as per your liking.

The data of the pie chart is also fully editable like any other chart in our one page documents. For this, select the pie chart, the data of which you want to edit, and right click on it.
