5 Working Examples of How to Create a Great About Us Page

Published

on

The “About Me” page is one of the first pages that site owners and bloggers create when first going live with their site. However, more often than not, this page is quickly thrown together and left to stay the same for many months or even years. While you might not think the about me page is that big of a deal, it’s actually one of the most read pages on nearly all websites and blogs.

When it comes to creating your content, it’s time to get personal. Share your story, your expertise and give it to your audience in a style that makes them want to read and learn more about you.

To help with this process, we’ve hand selected five different examples of “About Us” pages and how you can get some inspiration for creating a similar page on your own site.

Cartoon Icons to Represent Team Members

When creating an about us page, it’s all about getting creative. A fun example of this can be seen at New Zealand pokies, which is an online gaming resource site. There are only a few people behind the scenes at this website, but through the unique avatar images and bios, it gives the audience a feeling of who is creating the content on the site. With the focus of the site being around New Zealand gaming, it’s important to let the audience know that Kiwi’s are actually creating the main content for the site, while also having their own experience and expertise in the world of gaming as well.

Custom Designs with Integrated Team Members

When doing business with any website or company, it’s always important to have a good relationship with your account manager or person of contact. Mobidea, an affiliate network, has done an excellent job with this on their About Us page. Not only do they have a custom header section with team members, they also have a history map of the company and its growth over the years. When you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you will find a thumbnail image for each employee at the company, which then expands into an even larger bio page.

Telling Your Story with Big Numbers

Not all about pages need to be filled with the actual people behind a company. A perfect example of how you can provide a lot of value to your audience, while also showcasing your expertise and story, can be seen through the Logo Design Team about us page below. With over 15,000 clients and more than 1,000+ customer reviews, it’s this type of information and highlights that may sway a customer to move forward with their purchase more than if they were to see actual employee or designer bios and pictures. This is a good reminder for all brands out there to highlight their best work and any big media mentions on their about us pages.

Building Trust through Real Life Stories and People

In the world of e-commerce and online shopping, trust and relationships are everything. When buying pet food or supplies online, you want to make sure it’s from a reliable source. PetFlow is one of the largest online stores for everything pet food, and on their about us page, not only will you learn about the company, you will also meet and see the people (and pets) behind the company as well. For pet owners, this could be a huge deciding factor on whether they make a purchase from the site or not. Take a look at the screenshot below and imagine how it would make you feel as a pet owner, knowing the company is made up of ‘pet parents’ too.

Storylines, Employees and Hiring Options

No matter what industry you are in, if you are a well-respected brand and a leader in your space, you need to have a great looking site and About Us page. That is exactly what you will find at Moz, a leading SEO and research marketing company. In the screenshot below you will see their about me page, along with a left side menu of different topics around the company — such as their story, showcase of their team members, job hiring opportunities and also how to get contact with the company. On this same page, you will also get to scroll down and see a nice visual of the history of Moz and how they got to where they are today.

Make Sure Your About Me Page Stands Out!

With millions of sites on the internet, it’s not easy to stand out from the crowd. One of the best ways to accomplish this is by putting the time and effort into your about me page. Be sure to add some nice images and video if possible, while also sharing key data points about yourself or your brand, while also not boring your audience in the process. Check out each of the about me pages above, then spend some time looking at similar pages at your favorite sites or online stores.

Blogging for Money: How to Increase Your Profits

Published

on

Gordon Gekko embodied blogging for money. He said what is worth doing is worth doing for money.

I agree with that idea. Not with his insider trading.

Old GG clues you in to how to boost blogging profits.

If you blog you should make money blogging because you live a worldly life.

I see monks on alms every morning here in Northern Thailand. Monks do not need money. Buddhists give to the cloth, supplying monks with food and goods. A dazzling looking wat, or temple, sits 1 minute from the house. I hear gongs each evening at 6 PM, bringing the monks to some ritual. You should hear it too; quite serene and commanding, at the same time. I love living in foreign lands.

Blogging for Money

If you live like a monk you can shun money because you shun material things and a life of leisure. If you choose a worldly life just get comfortable receiving money through your blog. Or receiving more money through your blog.

Money helped me travel to New Zealand, where I snapped this dazzling photo.

blogging for money

Money is a car, a home, my plane tickets to Thailand, food, movie tickets, all that good stuff.

Blogging for money simply helps you live your dreams through blogging.

Whether you made millions online or are in a different tax bracket the same tips apply to making money with your blog.

See yourself as being successful. Money flows from within. I see this more daily. I feel good about my prospering. Money flows to me. My outside world reflects my focus on success. Feel successful. See your blogging wins. Observe your blogging wins, success and profits expand beautifully.

1: Focus on Money Flowing to You Easily

Million dollar bloggers and billion dollar entrepreneurs believe clearly that money flows to them easily. I concur.

Money is an inner game. Money begins in mind. As Bob Proctor says; money is in consciousness.

Warren Buffet has been one of the richest people on earth for decades. He said he never doubted he’d be really rich. His belief became so.

See money flowing to you easily. Visualize it. I do this multiple times daily. I affirm freely. I feel money flowing to me easily and see money around me, appearing out of the ethers.

Money flows to me easily these days. Plus money making ideas flow to me easily. I execute the ideas. The results rock.

My blog post ranks on Page 1 Position 3 for “advanced blogging tips” super quickly. I just published the post a few days ago.

Click here to read the post:

Advanced Blogging Tips

Plus I noticed how I nailed down 5 positions on page 2 of Google for “pro blogging tips” the other day.

Why?

I affirmed my wealth, felt more and more money flowing to me easily and saw more money flowing to me easily.

Do this is you are a 6 figure earner looking for greater profits. Money is an inner belief.

2: Learn How to Make Money Blogging From Top Pros

Top pros teach you how to become successful, full time bloggers.

Top pros teach successful, full time bloggers how to make more and more money.

Study wealth acquisition from wealthy people who live their dreams. Acquire wealth. Simple and quite easy way to prosper freely.

This tip is how most bloggers gain wealth quickly. They focus on advice offered by prospering bloggers and follow it from an abundant, dream-focused, success conscious vibe.

Read pro blogs. Invest money in pro courses. Hire pros to coach you. Profit.

I learned from top pro Alonzo Pichardo to create content and let it do what it does. Have posture. Know you succeed, now. Know your content will carry far and wide.

I shared this success conscious view with my readers via this video, which Alonzo promoted to his Facebook Page:

Pros remind you success and prospering is your birthright. Top pros offer proven practical tips for prospering but share the most important mindset tips to align you with blogging profits. Listen to them.

3: Count Money Wins

Count every single money win you recall from the past few years. Making $1 is a money win. Making $1,000,000.00 is a money win. Money loves you. Money loves being recognized. Recognize money. See your wealth acquired.

Sit down right now. Count your clients, course sales, affiliate sales and eBook sales. Be thorough. Money loves if you love noting money you made.  Where your attention and energy goes, grows.

Give your attention to money you manifested to make more money through your blog. Make more money.

4: Create on Topic and Inspire

Create on topic content to inspire your readers.

Stick to your niche. Be known in specific blogging circles.

Inspire readers to live their dreams through your:

  • blog posts
  • live broadcasts
  • podcasts

always infusing your positive, can do, success conscious energy into your posts.

Me by a massive yacht during my trip to Qatar. Pretty sweet boat.

I love adding my tropics selfies to every blog post. I make sure my readers soak up my life here in this sleepy, tropical village in Northern Thailand, pausing for a few minutes during videos between advice offered. Top bloggers love my delivery because many still seek the key to freedom; I help boost their profits and free them from a successful but confining lifestyle.

I also inspire top bloggers who live their dreams vicariously through me; maybe a few even decide to up and travel as well.

As these big dawg blogging pros promote me I boost my blogging profits.

Success Is Yours by Default

You are born into success.

Success is yours by default.

Seize your heritage.

Profit through your blog.

Develop your money mindset. Your energy and focus dictate your blogging income more than anything else. Successful bloggers speak their success into existence by visualizing their good and calmly, confidently seeing their success come into form. New mind, new blog. New mind, greater blogging profits.

Go within to see a new world. Go within to change the without.

All of your blogging success is an inside game. Since you succeed by default you simply go within, see your dream life unfolding before your eyes, in your imagination, and you know it will be so.

Prosper.

Pro Blogging Advice: How to Filter Opportunities

Published

on

pro blogging advice

I ensure that freedom is A1 in my life. Take this pro blogging advice to the bank. Literally.

Freedom helps you make more money, help more folks and feel good as your success expands. Freedom means making freeing choices all day long.

Freedom means filtering blogging opportunities according to:

  • giving energy only to opportunities promoting your freedom, success and dreams
  • giving no energy to all other opportunities flowing your way through email or Messenger or wherever

I spent a few minutes this morning making the bedroom in Thailand nice and cool. Freedom. Considering outside temps are toasty I figured having a cooler work space feels better, more freeing and helps me work from a chill – literally – relaxed, prospering energy. I had the time to do that because I only pick a select few opportunities flowing to me daily.

Pro Blogging Advice

Imagine Gordon Gekko’s line; I see 100 opportunities daily and choose 1.

I see quite a few and choose only successful opportunities that work for me and the other party.

Here I am during one of my Thailand trips.

This is how to filter opportunities to accelerate your blogging success. Give all of your attention and energy to:

  • success
  • opportunities vibing with your dreams
  • love
  • fun
  • harmony
  • peace

as you filter through:

  • pitches
  • asks
  • co-creating opportunities
  • interview requests

and you will become more successful while enjoying the ride and having tons of time offline to do what you love doing offline. Or to engineer your room in Thailand to make it cooler.

Pro bloggers save themselves hours daily and accelerate their success by only giving their energy to success and freedom expanding opportunities.

Every filter is a personal, intimate choice. If something feels fun to you, assess how you see the opportunity expanding your growth. Does it feel like it’s a way to expand your success and dreams? Seize the opportunity from a detached, chill, energy. You’ll see more success.

If the opportunity feels like it cannot expand your success then give it zero energy. Save yourself time, energy and the heavy, burdened feeling weighing down most bloggers who give more than a bit of their attention and energy to anything other than their success and dreams.

How to Filter Opportunities

Let’s say you just opened Messenger or your email inbox.

Scan the title of the first email. Within 1-2 seconds you instantly know if the opportunity moves you toward greater success and happiness and freedom. Respond with 1-2 lines if this is the case. Give no energy to any other opportunity.

If the Message or email feels like fear, give it no energy after 1-2 seconds of scanning. If it lacks clarity, give it a few seconds of scanning. If you vibe with the core message, respond. If not, release.

I tend to give most of my inbox no energy and a few opportunities minimal energy to save literally weeks of email time over years. You instantly know what to respond to and what to let go after a few seconds of scanning. We all do.

A Few Pointers

Keep these ideas in mind:

  • only pursue opportunities with positive, success-focused bloggers
  • only pursue opportunities that feel fun and freeing and success promoting
  • partner only with heart-centered bloggers
  • give your attention and energy to success-seeking newbies who literally put their money where their mouth is
  • think through how much time and energy interviews require before agreeing to do interviews with any blogger

For me, for an hour long interview, Tim Ferriss or Joe Rogan will do. Leveraging.

If not, that hour is best spent at the movies or going out to eat here in Thailand or writing an SEO-optimized post. Rest and relaxation and offline play is the foundation of all my pro blogging success. Getting a life makes you a successful blogger; you vibe abundantly by having a well-rounded, peaceful, abundant, interesting, fascinating, multi dimensional life, as all genuinely successful bloggers have.

I do not gobble up any opportunity. I clearly see if the opportunity aligns me with greater success and more successful folks because where your energy goes, grows.

This is a chief reason why I have circled the globe and lived a movie worthy life for 8 years. I give my attention and energy to success so success expands.

Success Seeking New Bloggers

Have blogging posture.

Sprint up the energetic ladder and see greater success by going to the top of your niche, networking solely with top bloggers in your niche.

Network with bloggers like Jeff Goins. Learn from him. Make an impression. Promote him. Move into higher blogging circles. Learning from the best and following their advice is a way to cut your learning curve by years.

It makes perfect sense to:

  • surround yourself only with highly successful folks
  • learn from only highly successful folks
  • align with only highly successful folks

If you seek health you seek out a highly skilled, successful doctor.

If you seek blogging health and success you seek out only highly skilled, successful bloggers.

Networking only with successful bloggers puts you on their radar, inspires you to practice writing, influences you to create and connect and you will see how your opportunity filter mirrors a pro’s filter; you learn from the best so do as the best do.

Only make room for blogging success.

Pursue success-expanding opportunities.

Network with successful bloggers.

Filter out all else.

Where your energy goes, grows.

Blogging Mindset: 2 Tips for Increased Success

Published

on

Developing a winning blogging mindset precedes your success.

First you feel successful and count your successes, or blogging wins. Devoting your energy to success allows this success to appear in greater amounts on the worldly plane.

Blogging Mindset

Two specific blogging mindset tips accelerate your blogging success.

The first tip vibes nicely with my chill evening here in Thailand. I watched Showtime online for quite a bit. Netflix next. Earlier today I watched the Game of Thrones premier, being a huge fan of the show.

GAL

Get A Life.

Look at the featured image for this post. Me in Cyprus. Look at this image below. Me in Bali.

blogging mindset

Successful bloggers lived well-rounded lives. Successful bloggers spend hours away from blogging because freedom is the #1 blogging goal we all tend to aim for.

Earlier today I saw many of my blogging buddies excited for the Game of Thrones episode, as was I. I also observed some blogging buddies who had no interest in the show. Different strokes for different folks.

However; some bloggers pride themselves on doing nothing but blogging 12 hours daily, shunning TV shows, movies and all forms of entertainment. Most of these bloggers fail, being filled with tension, force, stress and basically having no life. Bloggers who manifest worldly success with such an approach make tons of money but miss out on life. You cannot be successful unless you enjoy a well-rounded ride because your spirit is not one dimensional.

I chose to succeed and to enjoy my Netflix, Game of Thrones, basketball, traveling and other hobbies. You can have it all but get a life to detach some from blogging, to enjoy the richness of a rounded human experience and to accelerate your success.

Develop the blogging mindset of someone who is calm, confident, knowing of their success and detached from results. Watch TV, exercise, do yoga, go to the movies and get excited about season premiers. Top bloggers play online and play offline to vibe high, to be creative and to reach the pinnacle of their niche, because their chill, peaceful, confident, successful energy says so.

GWL

Go. Where. Loved.

Go where people love you. Give your attention to love and success. Love and success expand. You accelerate your blogging success.

Example

I respond to each person who Likes or comments on one of my Facebook posts. Likes and commentors love me. Or show me love. I respond to people who show me love because where your attention and energy goes, grows. Give energy to love and love expands. Success expands as love expands. Simple.

I responded to all comments on my blog. Give energy to love and success expands. Quite easy.

Reach out to successful bloggers you vibe with. Read their posts. Comment genuinely. Go where folks would love you and observe how friendships blossom.

Successful bloggers think like successes. Successes go where they are loved and waste no time giving energy to anything but love. Keep going back to where dear friends fill your well. Prosper. Simple formula.

Take care of your tribe. Befriend your readers. Bond with your customers. Keep showing love to people who show your love. Since where your energy goes, grows, the love grows as does your success.

How Living Both Acronyms Develop Your Mindset

As for getting a life, I just spent a few hours blogging earlier this morning having fun online from a chill vibe. After the blogging play I spent 4 hours out with Kelli. We enjoyed lunch here in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I have a life. I go shopping and eat out and watch movies and spend a few hours daily on Netflix. I also exercise and do deep yin yoga. Everything factors into my success.

Living in Fiji for 4 months factored in to my blogging success too.

Doing these things – aka having a life outside of blogging – works for me in a few ways:

  • I emit an abundant, calm, confident successful vibe, resulting in greater worldly success
  • top bloggers who also vibe success and abundance – who live rich lives offline – align with me

Observe John Chow. He is super successful. Does he work 20 hours daily? Nope. He leverages online and spends a ton of time offline, going out to eat, buying sweet cars and homes and living an abundant, balanced, rich life. He exudes abundance. He aligns with other top bloggers. No wonder why he is incredibly successful.

Getting a life helps you feel rested, recharged, calm, confident and success conscious. Perfect energy for reaching the top of your blogging niche.

As for going where loved, this is simple success energy in action. People love you and your blog. Give 100% of your attention to people who love you. Love expands. Your tribe grows. Your tribe becomes more loyal. You see more success because you give your energy to people who see you as successful. Simple. Easy too, because giving love to people who show love requires little effort.

See your success. Now.

Feel good about all of your blogging wins. If you experienced it, it is a blogging win for it brought you to today.

Get a life. Be like a pro blogger. Spend time offline. Emit a calm, detached, confident vibe irresistible to success.

Go where you are loved. Engage followers and fans on your blog and via social media. Give all of your attention to people who love you. Things will grow quite swiftly for bloggers 100% focused on engaging fans because where your energy goes, grows.

I gotta go guys; I just bought a container of fresh mangosteen here in Thailand. You should see how brilliant the skin looks. Incredibly tasty super fruit too with oodles of health benefits.

Time to enjoy this refreshing and filling super fruit.
