9 Simple About Me Page Examples

Did you know the about page is one of the most looked at web pages on your site? Your target readers can turn into new customers if this page of your website tells a great story with a clean design.

Many people who visit your about me page are first-time visitors wanting to know if they should invest more time in you. So what should your about me page include? Well, a few things.

I’ll outline nine in this blog post. If you have an about me page template or page design in place, then even better. Hopefully, these examples will help you be more creative as you develop your page.

If you’re working on about me pages for small businesses, then just make the tweak to about us. Instead of focusing on one person, include all of your team members. Here, you will also want to write in the third person instead of first person.

9 Simple About Me Page Examples

Visual About Me Page

When you see nothing but text, you get bored and probably think, “I don’t want to read all of that!” I think it’s important to show who you are visually – whether it be through bigger, more unique text or an interesting photo of you. It’s the best way to draw attention to what you’re trying to say.

I love this about me page because of the clear headline, sub-headline, picture, and my favorite part – the “that’s me” with the arrow.

Clear About Me Page

I’ve read about me pages before and have thought, “I still don’t know what this person does or if I need their services.” Some read like a company’s very broad mission statement.

Be clear. When your potential clients are able to see who you are and what you do right away, they are more likely to act.

I love this about me page, which also makes a great home page because the first sentence is so clear. Do you need a web designer or not? If so, you’ll keep reading. If not, you’re in the wrong place.

I’m a big fan of this about me page too. Instead of explaining what the person does in the headline, it’s written as more of a tease. I love the skills bar graph and humor in it as well. I also got a kick out of the “Hire me. I’m really good.”

Effective ways to make your audience move from point a to point b include being clear. In need of a graphic designer, then look no further! It’s very clear.

Fun About Me Page

Depending on your brand, maybe you want to be fun. That’s what I did on my lifestyle blog, Christina All Day. You can see I shared some fun facts, a list of favorites, and used a cute gif to share my favorite TV show.

If anyone wants to see social proof or a look at my social network, then I have my media kit that acts as an about me page for prospective clients. There, they can find out more about my personal blog, number of website visitors, my email address, short bio, professional photos, and social media accounts. It’s a lot of information, but a good place for it – especially if you’re trying to make your personal brand center stage.

Branded About Me Page

Make sure your about me page is on-brand. Does it feature your brand’s colors? Your brand’s fonts?

Everything should show your brand so when someone sees an image, they say, “Oh, that’s from (insert your name here).”

This one is so unique. It’s instantly recognizable and would be pretty difficult to confuse with another brand.

Personal About Me Page

Yes, you’re probably looking at websites for professional business, not personal reasons. Still, it’s nice to see glimpses into people’s personal lives. It’s a great way to reach your target audience, especially if your target audience is parents.

I’m not just choosing Brandon Gaille’s about page because I use his SEO software RankIQ, but because I really like his approach. The sub-headline hooks me. Yes, it’s a little longer than most, but his story is a little longer than most. It’s fitting.

I also like that his about me page isn’t titled “about” or “about me.” Instead, it’s “read my story” and that title couldn’t be a better fit for him.

I’m a big fan of Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income. Never mind his about page, I love his entire site! It’s so clean and easy to navigate… but back to about pages.

His about page shows another great example of sharing some of his personal life successfully. He doesn’t only explain his brand (professional) but shares a family picture (personal). Side note: My favorite part of his podcast episodes are the fun facts in the opening.

Helpful About Me Page

I saved the best for last. The number one reason people are checking out your about me page is to see if you can help them – whether it be with a service you provide or a product you sell.

The Femtrepreneur homepage acts as an about page and I think it’s brilliant.

If you aren’t offering your audience help and telling them how you’re going to help them, they will leave. As soon as you visit Mariah Coz’s site, you see “Tell me how I can help you!” followed by three options for solutions that fall under her expertise – growing an email list, conducting webinars, and creating, selling, and launching online courses.

I’m also a big fan of Melyssa Griffin and she does the same thing on her about me page. Right away, she asks what you need help with.

If growing your audience, monetizing your passion, or standing out online is what you’re looking for, she’s got you covered!

While you’re here, visit my “about” page by clicking here. I include two things I didn’t mention above that I’m a big fan of:

  1. Video
  2. Call to action

Why video? Well, that’s kind of my thing. I’m a former on-air personality, so I feel comfortable in front of the camera, and creating videos is something I do for clients. Plus, statistics show people are more likely to watch a video than read text. It’s very easy to embed YouTube videos to pages, so have at it!

I like to include a call to action as well… and that’s pretty common. You’re on my about page for a reason, so I want to make sure you act if you’re intrigued by what you see. By including a call to action there, you’re making things easier for the person visiting your site, which in turn, helps me out as well.

Over on my lifestyle blog, Christina All Day, I use a picture of me blogging and start the page by saying, “Hi, I’m Christina.” Check it out here!

Some other things you can include on an about me page include

  • new projects you’re working on
  • other important pages on your website
  • social media links
  • case studies
  • work experience
  • company history
  • brand story
  • your personal values
  • your personal bio
  • press mentions

Some of this important information may be their own page as well, it just depends on what your main goals are for your website. You can also drop internal links to outside pages. For example, on my about me page, I link to my free online course.
