Obtaining a Proofreader to Enhance an About Page
Have you ever visited a website and looked at the About page? Each page on the website reflects the overall brand. Obtaining a proofreader to enhance an About page is beneficial. It is a place where the audience can learn more about that business or blog.
It is as equally important as the home page. They all require that you pay close attention to misspelled words, grammar and punctuation. Sometimes mistakes get overlooked.
A proofreader serves to make suggested corrections. They are the behind the scenes go to person and are those extra set of eyes. A proofreader catches those things that were missed the first time.
Imagine that a potential reader or client comes across your website. Wouldn’t you want the opportunity to get those errors corrected ahead of time?
Staying true to your voice
What if there was a better way to convey your message? While keeping your “voice’ throughout the rest of your content. That is the beauty of a proofreader that can make those corrections and assist with editing.
People get busy and having someone take care of those concerns will go a long way. You get the best of both worlds by providing more value with what you do. Your audience or potential client will see that as well.
Think of an About page as that moment that you get to introduce yourself to someone. You get the chance to shake hands and get to know a person.
An About page shifts over time
An About page is also a page that evolves over time. Perhaps things have changed for you since you first wrote it. Keeping it fresh over time is a good way to prune it. You add what enhances what you are all about and you cut out what is no longer relevant.
Read a few About pages to get a sense of what that brand or person is trying to convey. Do you notice any similarities? Sometimes they will all carry a common factor, yet still set themselves apart from others.
What is it about you that makes you different?
These are things to think about. It will help you look at your overall mission with your website. Is it easy to read and will your audience understand what you are for?
