As a B2B content strategist, it’s your job to connect with prospects, finding ways to gain their trust in order to convert them into paying customers. One way to do this is by creating an About Us page that effectively and authentically shares your company story—including your mission and core values, and how your products and services benefit your customers.

After all, B2B About Us pages get a lot of attention. According to one survey, 52 percent of respondents said they wanted to see About Us information as soon as they hit a B2B company’s homepage.

If your About Us page consistently ranks among the top 10 most-visited pages—and we’re betting it does—then read on to learn more about:

7 Best Practices for B2B Pages

The goal of your B2B About Us page isn’t to make a sale. Instead, the focus should be on building trust and credibility with your target audience. Highlight your mission, beliefs, value proposition, and key differentiators. And in every case, show how they support and relate to your prospects and customers. That said, keep the following About Us page best practices top of mind as you create your B2B About Us page:

  1. Showcase your brand voice and identity. The best B2B About Us pages apply a consistent brand voice in both copy and visual design to effectively communicate a company’s brand personality and core values, and convey how it stands out from the competition.
  2. Inspire, empower, and connect with your audience. An About Us page that takes a company-centric approach, only talking about who you are and what you do, will fail to resonate with your users. Make sure to connect your mission, vision, and values with tangible—and exciting—solutions that address your customers’ needs and challenges.
  3. Ensure a cohesive content progression. Structure About Us content so that the most important information is up front and your page content follows a natural narrative arc. Lead with messaging that clearly shares your customer-focused mission and value prop. Include a brief company story only if it’s truly unique and will strike a chord with visitors. This is when a content model can come in handy.
  4. Employ clear, concise, compelling copy. Use descriptive language that embodies your brand voice and tone. Succinct, snappy eyebrows, headlines, paragraphs, and CTAs—both short-form and microcopy—that use the second person (you, your) will grab your visitors’ attention much more so than generalized, long-form text will.
  5. Provide helpful links to relevant supporting content/pages. Don’t try to say it all on a single page; TMI (too much information) can overwhelm and confuse your visitors. Avoid cognitive overload by providing the key point or theme on your About Us page, then supplying a link to more information for visitors who want to dig deeper.
  6. Include content that persuades and validates. Rather than just telling visitors what you do and how well you do it, show them via noteworthy stats and figures, awards and other recognition, and customer testimonials. Consider featuring a brief video, blog posts, or news that help explain how customers benefit from your company.
  7. Apply an engaging, on-brand visual design. To further connect and delight visitors, include colors or color blocking, polished photos (human-centric if possible), iconography, illustrations, and micro-animations or other interactive elements in keeping with your brand. Visually engaging, or immersive, content experiences can improve engagement as much as 252 percent.

B2B Page Examples

In searching for the best B2B About Us pages, I found some great About Us examples—and others that still had room for improvement. Most of the About Us page examples included here are B2B, though a couple serve B2C audiences. Their inclusion is intentional. That’s because B2B audiences spend time on B2C sites and platforms, which push the creative bounds and elevate expectations for a delightful, customer-focused UX.

Take a look at what the following About Us page examples do well—and what they don’t, based on the best practices covered above. And use what you learn to enhance your own B2B About Us page.
