When we take the time to care how a guest feels on our website, we’ll make fast friends and they’ll want to come around again and again. I’ve seen so many websites where I simply click away because of a bad about page or lack of a contact page. If we want to take things to the next level, we must put that user experience first.

As a graphic designer, pastor and web designer I do a lot of research on the internet. I look up churches and the first page I go to is their About page. What most don’t realize, the About page is the most visited page a website has.
