We're working on a project that requires the use of a few single page websites for content promotion. The content will largely be static. We're considering: *Jekyll hosted on either CloudCannon or Github Pages *Wordpress hosted on WPengine *Something hard coded hosted on Github Pages *Tumblr Curious to hear if anybody has any favorites out of those. Trying to keep hosting costs to under $75-100

    If you just want to create a static landing page go to ThemeForest and buy an HTML landing page (or 2 or 3). They should cost you well under $100, and you can host it anywhere you want.

    Wordpress themes cost a bit. If you want to have a couple of designed pages, you might spend well over $100. If you just need those static LPs for each content piece, stick to the good old fashioned HTML/CSS combo.

    At the same time, I never tried Tumblr for content promotion before. If you choose this route, please share your experiences with us! Good luck.

    You can try static HTML templates paired with static CMS like Sitecake.com (Disclaimer: I'm a founder). It edits pages and saves content back in HTML, files on the server. Sitecake has cool drag and drop interface and it's free for basic version!

    If it's only a couple of pages and clients don't need to change content themselves , I'd go for straight HTML and forget the content system. They will be quick loading which client love. I tried using static CMSs with clients w/o no coding background and was too hard. In the end I ended up doing all the changes
