Your reader has just peeled over your funny or helpful blog post and they want to know more about the amazing writer behind the post, but you have a vague or non-existent about me page. They leave your blog feeling deflated and probably won’t visit it again. I’m here to change all of that for you and your reader in this short, but impactful post on how to create the perfect About Me page that you and your reader will love.
Here’s my formula to About Me page success:
Download this free questionnaire Questions To Answer Before Writing Your About Me Page.
Grab your reader’s attention with a short, punchy headline that makes them want to continue reading your page.
Hone their interest by telling your reader who you are and where you come from.
Write a brief synopsis of your career or what you do, your relevant qualifications and how you got to the point of starting this blog.
Tell your readers what you believe in and what you stand for.
Add beautiful photos or interesting videos.
Share personal titbits or fun facts.
Tell your readers how you are going to solve their problems, make their lives easier or add value to their lives if they continue to visit your blog.
Add links to your favourite/most helpful/ popular posts so they can read more of your work.
Remind your readers to sign up to your newsletter or subscribe/ follow your blog.
Add links to your social media.
Ask them to buy one of your products if you are selling anything on your blog.
Encourage them to comment or like your blog posts.
Write as you speak
Keep your About Me page as short and simple as possible
Double check for spelling and grammatical errors
Feel free to freshen up your About Me page as often as necessary
