There are 4 pages on your site that are the most important and most visited.
Each page is important to have a well developed website.
Let’s talk about the Contact page.
It’s essential that your readers have a way to contact you, and what better way then your Contact page.
If formatted correctly, you are in control of how they connect with you.
This doesn’t mean that you leave your phone number and your personal email.
Many successful authors have certain things on their Contact pages to ensure their readers are heard.
5 Ingredients of Your Author Contact Page
Because your Contact page is one of the most visited pages on your site, it needs to be a priority when developing it.
Don’t just throw up any old thing on your page and call it done.
Your readers want to hear from you. They want to get to know you. And this page can help you.
The best Contact pages include:
- Images. Typically this would be a picture of you, a good one. But you can also include pics that go well with your brand.
- Personal blurb. Share something with your readers, for example: how appreciative you are of all their support. Or for following you.
- Include either your author email or add a form that readers can fill out.
- Links to your social media accounts. You want them to share on social media. Make it easy for them.
- End with a CTA (call-to-action). You want them to do something when they are done reading, show them with a simple CTA.
While these are certainly not all that you can put onto your Contact page, these are the basics.
They can be put together in any way that you like.
Don’t forget formatting
Because I am an editor at heart, I think about the way it is written as well.
Here are tips remember:
- Grammar. Make sure you’ve spelled things correctly. Well written copy goes a long way.
- Above the fold. Make sure your most important stuff is above the fold so readers don’t have to scroll to know how to contact you.
- Don’t complicate it. This page is not meant to be difficult. Be specific and get to the point quickly. This page is about connecting, not going into your full story. Save that for your About page.
- Show off your personality. Include something else that really shows who you are.
- Add high def images. Always use good quality images to convey what you are doing.
- Look gorgeous. Make sure this page is just as pretty as the rest of your pages. Mobile responsive is essential too.
- Have fun!! It’s not meant to be a difficult page.
Hopefully that helps you in creating a page that will wow your readers.
