What goes in your “About Me” Page

November 10, 2008

I've been setting up a few about me pages for the Mentor sites and it's cool to get a glance at who some of you are. The “About Me” page on your mentoring website is a very important page. It basically shows the world who you are and lets them know that you ARE a real person. Wait . . . you are? . . . aren't you?

I've had a few people sign up for my Free Mentoring Site, but were unsure as to what to include in their “About Me” page. I've decided to jot down a few suggestions.

Here are some things you should think about including:

  • Who you are
  • What you do
  • Why should anyone work with you
  • Why you would love to work with them
  • It's always a good idea to include a picture

Here are some examples of “About Me” Pages that I consider to be pretty good:

Things to keep in mind

  • Privacy: Remember, whatever you include online is available for the world to see. You shouldn't include any information that you aren't comfortable sharing.
  • Keep it short: Yes, people want to know who you are, but they do NOT want to know your entire life story.
  • Make it relevant: You are trying to get referrals for your freebie sites, so you've obviously been involved in the freebie industry. Taylor your “About Me” page to reflect that.
