People do not buy what you do, they buy why you do it.   How to write a great “about me” and “contact” page to get them fully engaged and to get them to contact you.

 

What is an “about me” page?

 

If you have ever sat down and started writing one? You may soon find a lot out about yourself.  Here is My Story

 

I don’t know how many times I have rewritten mine.   So I am going to help you do the same.  Oh, not rewrite it, just get it down good in the first place.

 

 

Making your page great!

 

 

Where do people go when they have read a great post?   That’s right, the about me page.  They want to know more about the person writing it and see if there is some connection.   Do you look at the back cover of a book?

 

The other reason why your “about me” page is so important, is that it lets people get to know you, like you, and trust you so they will more likely want to do business with you.

 

 

What is it that makes a great “About Me” page

About me 

It is the beginning of the contact page, you took all the effort to get them to your blog, that now you want them as clients and customers.  You want them to trust you enough to exchange dollars for your products and services.   

 

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty of why they should contact you.  Why is it that you wanted them here in the first place?

 

Working them to the contact form

 

It’s not someone’s first intention to find the contact form and fill it out, so we need to ease them in and tell them why you want them to do just that!

 

Say hello, and add a friendly blurb to introduce yourself.  Include your call to action.  Ask them questions to get their feedback.   

 

People will not know what it is that you want them to do if you don’t ask.  

 

This is a great way to send them to a FAQ page. Um….. this is if you have a designer page, or link to certain other pages, that gives out the details of what people ask for most of the time.

 

Points to add to your contact form

 

If you’re going to use images use them very sparingly.

 

The things that we can do with this;

is add a provoking emotion,

build a connection,

or flaunt your blog post or cover.

 

This is also a place where you can put your picture if you don’t have it on your front page or on your side bar, or a short little video just to explain what your doing, but nothing more.

If you want them to provide you with other information, then pulling them into the form is the way to retrieve it.

 

contact page

This is where and alternate contact details need to be put. You can add a web sign up form, you can add a Skype number. If you want their phone number, or an email address, or any other kind of information that you are asking for, this is where you put it.

 

If they know why you are asking it they are more likely to add it.

 

Social media links. These are really good because if you’re going to build trust with someone, they need to know where to get a hold of you.   They need to be able to see your different kind of life style. This is where you can toss them the link and say; oh by the way visit me here.

 

 

Still Not sure how to do your Contact form?

 

 

Examples:

 

Number 1

Do you want a two brand your business? Do you need a new website? Just wanted to say hello?

 Fill out the form below or send an email to and we can chat.

 

Or, go here to find information on my work, my progress and website advice.

 I personally read and respond to everything that comes into my inbox. I promise to get back to you within 48 hours. I’m so excited to hear from you.

 

****(This is where you enter your form showing the information you asked for)****

 

Number 2

 

I can’t just design, paint, sew, bake, craft, work all day long without human connection.

So send me your questions remarks, or snapshot of whatever you found that you were interested in that makes you happy.

 

Or you can always find me loitering on a social media site.

 

****(Insert your contact form)****

 

 

Now that you get the idea of how to engage with your audience.  I invite you to fill mine out and let me know what you thought.
