About Page Challenge: Update your about page right now!

1. Answer Who, What and Why

Visitors look at an about page to find out who you are, what you do and why they need/want you. Be sure your about page addresses these questions. In answering these questions it can be helpful to link to relevant blog posts that help the visitor dive into more detail.

2. Remind Them People Run Your Business

An about page is a great place to highlight the skills and expertise of your executive team and employees. Be sure to use professional photos of the people you are highlighting to bring a face to a name. It’s also a good idea to include Twitter usernames (Why Twitter?) to enhance accessibility. Your customers should know who you are and be able to talk to you!

“All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”
~ Bob Burg
