5 Examples of the Best About Us Pages
When it comes to running businesses, communicating with clientele is what it’s all about in order to garner customers regularly. Fortunately for those of us living in this digital era, communicating has a lot to do with how the internet is used to present our work. Under the umbrella of the internet comes owning a website. Having our own website goes a long way in forming bridges between companies and present and future clients.
A website is perhaps one of the best methods of informing clientele regarding individual work or that of a company’s. Many businesses in today’s time stay ahead of the marketing game simply by creating great websites and sustaining overall social media presence. One of the most important parts of a website that does its job well is having a great “About Us” page.
“About us”- what’s it about?
Your “About us” page is where clients or viewers will click on in order to find out briefly what your company is all about. In essence, viewers are trying to weigh out how much they can trust your company and whether or not they can be convinced regarding the product(s) or service(s) you have to offer.
The “About us” page is typically the first or second page being linked to on top of the website, sometimes it can be the last section as well. A good “About us” page can be both short and precise or a bit on the longer side, without missing important facts.
A few questions that the “About us” page generally answers are:
-How and when did the company startup?
-Who is/are the owner(s) of the company?
-What is the company’s objectives or motives?
-What are the company’s values/core principles?
-What makes the company special or stand out in the particular sector it operates under?
