The about page is in the top 3 pages visited by unique website visitors.
I arrive on a website I’ve never been to before. What’s the first thing I do? I read the headline text on the home page, do a quick assessment of the graphics and user interface which lets me know if the company is outdated, then finally (if I haven’t already abandoned the site) I look for the about section.

The about section should include the big questions:

  1. What product or service do you provide?
  2. Why are you providing it? What gap in the market did you notice? What problem are you trying to solve for your customers?
  3. How are you doing it?
  4. Who are you?

The about page is sometimes the first or second page your visitor will view on your site.
