Answer: Three plus the “Other Stuff”
You can create a website with 3 pages…
…but you need the “other stuff” to have a 3-page website that works hard for you, and is more than a fancy online business card.
Your site may be only 3 pages, but if you want a website that helps build your business download my “Other Stuff” checklist.
Add A Free Offer
It doesn’t matter if your website has 3 or 30 pages, the main benefit of having a website is being able to grow your email list for free, and engage with your followers.
You’ll not only place a free offer on your home page, you’ll add it to your About page, too!
Home…But Not For Long
Be sure to have at least one button that clicks off your homepage onto your About or Contact page.
Google ranks your site after a site visitor clicks off one page and to another page on your website.
That’s a big reason why a one page website is not a good option.
About Them Page
Focus your About page text on how you can help your site visitor. Make it less about your accomplishments and accolades, unless is directly impacts our perfect customer.
- Describe what you can do for them
- Add a free offer that solves ONE problem quickly and easily
- Let them know how to get in touch with you
Don’t Give Out Your Email Address
Do not add a link to your email address anywhere on your website. Use a contact form instead. Robots crawl the internet looking for names and email addresses to scrape off websites and sell them to spammers.
One of my customers insisted her email address be on every page of her website. Within a few months she was begging me to remove it because her email inbox was receiving over 1,000 emails per day from companies she didn’t know.
If You’re Active on Social Media
If you want people to join your Facebook community, find you on LinkedIn, or other social media platform, add you social media links on your home page, and all your pages.
