8 Ways to Improve Your 'About Us' Page

8 Ways to Improve Your 'About Us' Page | Digital SMBs | Scoop.it
Chances are, it's one of the most-visited pages on your site. It's probably also the weakest. Here's how to fix it.

 

Which page of your website gets the most visitors? If you're like most businesses, your About Us page is at or near the top of the list.

 

That's great--unless you treat your About Us page as an afterthought.

 

After your site gets potential customers interested in your products or services, they naturally head to your About Us page--often within three to four clicks--to make sure your company is the right choice to provide those products and services. That's why your About Us page is often your website's make or break page.

 

Of course writing about yourself and your business is awkward, so many About Us pages read something like this:

"NextBigThing Technologies is a global solutions provider that redefines enterprise networking and connectivity by providing a unique blend of innovative world-class services and outstanding customer experiences."

 

Sounds impressive, especially if you like buzzwords. But it says nothing.

 

So take a different approach. Make sure your About Us page gives potential customers what they need to feel comfortable choosing you.

I really enjoyed this article due to the simplicity of the inforgraphic showcasing the information in a colourful and engaging way. As there are several types of social media such as facebook, twitter and tumblr (blogs) having media stratergy for each one is important. All of them have different communiction features and different target audiences. Kamal has chosen well and agreeing with emma that this really links well with the week 7 lecture topic.

This is a good article as it uses infographics which makes it easier to understand and take in the idea of developing and implementing a media strategy and in this case for social media. The first 4 steps are the basics to developing a strategy and then it expands on it with not great detail but just the quick basic information one needs to know. Although one thing it doesn't mention though is analyzing a market or finding a target market which I beleive helps within the process of developing a strategy, knowing what potential customers to target or what market or segment.

In today’s market, social media has become an essential factor of building a business strategy. It is very important that we approach and engage customers through social sites. In the beginning of this article, it shows that a successful social media strategy depends on establishing a sound business goal. Goals must be defined clearly to utilize the appropriate social media in achieving the business goal. After the goals are set, it is also important to define the metrics and tactics. This is because these will measure whether the social media efforts are creating consideration and conversions with the target audience. Through this process, companies can evaluate and measure success and failures, and prepare for a better business strategy to succeed in social media.
