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?

Not seeing your clients or prospects in person can really hinder your business especially in a time like this. But there is good news!

Where should your call to action be on your website?

Most businesses almost hide what they want people to do on their site. If you knew someone was on your site for 1 minute and 38 seconds would you have your site designed differently? (By the way, that is the averages I typically see when diving into google analytics). There is an art to making a quality design paired up with a call to action. Too cheesy and you might look cheap, too discreet and they’ll miss it. The key is making sure your call to action is at least visible on the top fold of your website on a desktop or a phone. You could also have an item of value be your secondary call to action of the top fold as well.  Now…
