The About page is one of the first places you begin to establish a relationship with your target audience. Visitors look to this page to get to know you and learn the story behind the start of your business. Don’t think of this page as a resume, think of this page as a conversation starter!
It is hard to write about yourself. Collin and I had a hard time writing our About page, too. It feels weird to try and sum up all of your experience and passion into a paragraph or two. Did you know that it took us several weeks of back and forth editing to get the opening paragraphs of our About page. Our goal is to convey our core belief … that you can and must take control of your online marketing to grow your business.
We are completely, 100% obsessed with building and marketing businesses online. Our services enable you to create your own online business success by providing you with the tools you need to get started, grow your community, and succeed.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to market your business online, but … to be successful, you do need to recognize the importance of meeting the needs of your target audience. We’ll provide you the tools and knowledge you need to build your own online business success!
stories and experience
We then wanted you to get to know our individual stories and experiences. Again, not by just listing our degrees or past jobs, but by letting you inside our journey to form lo + co group, llc. Collin and I each wrote about how we first came to know the world of graphic design, website design and online marketing. Most importantly, we share with you the story of how we have each applied the work we do within lo + co to other businesses we own.
Collin used her incredible graphic design skills to build GiftedLabels.com, a website selling do-it-yourself wine labels and other printables. I lent my skills of website design to help Collin design the website she envisioned for her company and to set up the automatic delivery of the PDF downloads/printables. Collin now has over 2,500 email subscribers, 1,200 Facebook fans and has even had her company, GiftedLabels.com, featured on the Today Show!
I used my web design and online marketing skills to build StitchesofLoveQuilting.com, a website selling printed and PDF downloadable applique quilt patterns designed by my mom, Julie Love. Collin lent her graphic design skills to develop the logo and branding of our company, the pattern layouts and printed sales materials including our semi-annual catalogs. In the past two years we have grown from zero audience to over 10,000 email subscribers, 8,600 Facebook fans and global wholesale and consumer sales in over 20 countries.
As you can see from our About page, we are obsessed with building profitable online businesses and we love to help business owners just like you do the same thing! Use your About Us page to share your passion and inspire your visitors!
