Where do you put a message from you on your website?

Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel

Message from You

There’s almost a guarantee that if someone looks at your homepage and you’ve peaked their interest, they are going to visit your about us page.

It tends to be the second most visited page by far on any website analytic I’ve tracked. You should write (in first person) a message from you to your prospects on this page.

Think about it, they are wanting to read about you and how you can help them. Why not write directly to them? 

I’m not saying to abandon your bio, but clearly highlight this message from you in your website design and even include a signature line to make it stand out even more!

I recommend telling them why you love helping your industry or what they can expect from your team or your business, just don’t make it about you make it about how you can help them.

Here’s a few IMC examples to show you what I mean:

P.S. I know it’s been a very hit and miss weekly email that i said I would do that you are getting today. I’m bringing this back to website tips because that’s where any business online foundation starts… and where it needs to be continually improved.

With a new look to website tips and a refreshed writer (me lol), let’s just say I’m back (Like Jordan said after he tried baseball… except MJ should have never retired and hired Tom Brady’s trainer and maybe he’d still be playing haha!).

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

Does your website need help?

What value are you willing to give away for free?

There are so many ideas out there of where your call to action should be and how to market it but have you ever just asked yourself, would I want this or is this a great value to someone else? It seems if we just step back and ask ourself that question it will help us really pivot to making a better offer. And in the end, if you want to help people they will see the value you are providing and want to work with you in the end anyways. Here’s a thought: If it doesn’t hurt to give it away, the give or offer isn’t big enough. One of my favorite gives of all time that I have experienced was a free audio…

The “Scan” Test – why quick bitesize content matters.

If you’ve taken the time to read your county’s or state’s guidelines for reopening this past week, did you read the entire document or scan it to find out exactly what you were looking for? I bet 95% of us scanned it, and I’ll tell you why. We don’t have time to read 10 pages of text, or at least we think we don’t. People are looking for headlines to grab their attention. If we find a headline, then we are looking for bullets to define the details of that headline. This is why it’s so important that we take these things into consideration, whether it’s your website, your email campaigns, or any PDF we put out digitally.  Did you know that most people leave a website within 10 seconds? And…
