Writing Good Welcome Text - Easy

When someone comes to your website, you only have a few moments of their attention, so keep it brief. Imagine yourself as a customer coming to your site, and make sure the content is something that they would find useful. If they’re interested in the details, they’ll go to your About Me page. When you create your Elite website, you’ll get some sample welcome text in the Welcome Text widget on your site. It’s advised that you change that text completely to better reflect your own business.

Some things to include (in a few sentences):

  • Your name (your contact info/picture should be close by in a Contact Info widget)

  • How long you’ve been in business

  • What area(s) you serve

  • What services you provide

  • What your website provides

  • Links to your most important website pages

Overall, the number one thing to keep in mind is to design so that your website is something a customer can easily use, and of course, make sure to spell-check your text!
