About Us page is the most important page on a website after home page because It’s the page from where visitors get information about the website, such as, what the website is all about, how the website got its start, who are the people involved & how far they have come till now and a lot of other information.
No matter what kind of website you have, be it a single page website, a blog, an eCommerce website or a site offering some service or software About Us page is equally important in all the sites.
But having an about page isn’t enough, you need to have a creative and well designed about us page because a visitor lands on your website’s about page only when he/she is interested in knowing more about you or your business and if the page succeeds in impressing the visitor, you earn a loyal visitor which can benefit you in one or another way.
It’s very much like making an impact on the first meeting.
