How To Write About Us Page For Your Website

Hello my name is, 

Whatever reason you have a website or social media presence you NEED to write an elevator pitch. This will then become part of your networking and social media toolbox;

  • Your “About Us” / “About Me” website page.
  • Your social media bio’s – each platform has its own varying character count having a long form post (like your About Us page) provides you with key points you can use over and over to ensure consistent branding.
  • Your “Hello my name is …” for introductions at networking events 
  • Introduction posts on social media.

Your elevator pitch provides readers/potential customers a clear understanding of;

  • What you do
  • What your small business benefits are to others
  • Your story (how you got to this point)
  • How customers can work with you

 

About Us Page – Is Your Story

Your About Us page is your long-form (between 600-1000 words) Hello my name is ..

PR companies and brands will immediately head to your About Us page in order to glean whether you are the right people for them to work with. So make sure you sell yourself! Don’t be British – be bold, be daring, tell everyone what makes you rock!

  8. Review On A Regular Basis: “There is no point whatsoever in writing yourself a lovely About page, publishing it, and then just never looking at it again. You need to regularly review your page and check whether all the information in it is still correct and relevant.”Vicky from Single Mother’s Ahoy!
  9. Awards: Include any awards you may have been nominated, shortlisted or won
  10. Any Useful Information:  If you write for other blogs, businesses or publications. Are involved in other things – networking events, training or teaching.
