Where do you put a message from you on your website?
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel
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 RangelI'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.

The KC Royals had just one the World Series… finally. They have hours, days in fact of footage to get you hyped about the next season and have everyone ready to buy next years season tickets.

I guess I was expecting something magical when I clicked the “buy now” button to…Read More
