Making A Good About Page

Last Update: December 18, 2016

In this training i want to discuss a little bit about a little thing called the about me page. I will tell you why it is important. I will give you some insight into what to include in your about me page to draw people to the content of your page. Making a good about page can make a website great again, or a mediocre one can break a website. So you owe it to yourself to get it right

Why Worry About Making A Good About Page?

I've been taught at Wealthy Affiliate that the most read page on a website is the about me page. It is the ultimate trust builder between you and your audience. They will buy from you if they trust you. In life you buy things recommended by your friends and family because that trust is established. It's no different in the online world.


Below I list several key ingredients to an excellent about page. You need to include this information in there to make it seem like an actual peron is behind the site and not a robot. People respond much better and you will get more people actually reading your content. This can then generate... SALES.

Heres What To Include In Your About Page

  • A Good Profile Picture
  • Who Are You?
  • When Did You Start This Page?
  • Where You At?

A good profile picture of yourself is prefered, but it can be an image related to what your site is about. On my site Cool Tees Online my site is about movie inspired t-shirts. My profile pic has a picture of me wearing one.

Tell them who you are. Just give them your first name so they know who they are talking to. You are a person and not a robot. People like to see that the site they are on isn't made by a faceless entity, but a human being.

Let them know how long this webiste has been around even if you just started it today. This isn't really too important, but it doesn't hurt either if you just started it. However, if your website has been around a while it can help establish you as more of an authority site. People will take your site more seriously.

Give a general location as to your base of operations. I just put myself down as being in the Northwest Arkansas region of nowhere. You don't have to be too specific and some think mine is too geographically specific. I don't know but I have been told that

Give A Glimpse Into Your Life

The next thing to include in here is a little bit about yourself. Things you might like to mention are hobbies(especially to do with your niche), interests, places you have visited, and why you feel like you are qualified to make a website on your niche. If you are wondering what a niche is join the site that I'm on here and they will let you know all about it.

Great post, Jason. I think, too, that an About Me page should also be a selling point to your reader: what value can you provide your reader? A CTA is an excellent idea to have within your About Me page.
