Branding Your About Page
The About Us page on your website does more than just introduce your business. It's a chance to share your story in a way that motivates potential customers to purchase from you. The objective with this page is to cater to your customers' needs to such an extent that they’re motivated to click and explore your offerings. This is where you can showcase what makes you unique, what your business stands for, and why your products or services are the best choice for your website visitors. Here we’ve provided some About Us website examples and ideas to get you started!
About Us Website Examples and Inclusions
If you have a clear understanding of your message and overall brand identity, (check out last week's blog post for more on that) you can start crafting an About Page that actually connects with your readers.
Some About Us Page ideas to include:
- Mission statement, core values, and history
- Awards and accomplishments
- Team members
- Customer testimonials
- Press mentions and contact information
These are just a few ideas to get you started, but your About Page should be tailored specifically to the needs of your target audience. Building trust with said audience is crucial, so leverage this page to instill confidence and highlight why you're the perfect go-to for them.
Engaging About Us Page Samples
A customer-centric approach is key here. Step into your consumer mind for a moment and think about what makes an About Page compelling. Motivating About Pages generally include the list we mentioned above and they take it one step further. Instead of just describing the business, they address their customers’ pain points by transforming dull descriptions into motivating statements. Here are some About Us Page ideas to address your customers’ challenges.
- Tell them how you will make their lives easier. Don't hold back or dance around their concerns. Show them you're eager to save their precious time by taking on tasks they're swamped with. Let them know about your product that'll streamline their work. Be direct about wanting to help them with 'x' so they can fully concentrate on 'y'. Remember, 'y' is an important factor in this equation. Consumers are looking for problem-solving so they can enjoy or do ‘y’, and you hold the solution they're seeking.
- Give them reasons why your solution is lasting. Consider the long-term advantages of saving money and avoiding wasted time. Instead of saying, "My business is reliable and this product is effective," try something like, "Never worry about 'x' again with this product/service!" or "Keep your focus on 'y' while we handle the rest." Demonstrate that their needs come first when emphasizing the benefits of your solution.
- Showcase previous successes to build trust. Show how you've already helped others tackle similar challenges. Testimonials, case studies, and success stories work wonders for this. Try to make it easy for your previous customers to share their experiences with new visitors too. (Think: video or social media interviews.) It'll make those on the line of purchase feel more comfortable saying yes to you.
Demonstrate empathy by getting to know people's situations and then offer resources to facilitate their progress. Stay focused by asking yourself questions like:
- What do customers want from me and my business?
- What are the worries that keep them up at night?
- Why are they visiting my website? What do they get from visiting?
You should also make sure that all content on your About Page is up to date. As your business grows and changes, don't forget to update this page accordingly so that visitors always have the most accurate information.
