Friday Links: Tackle Your Contact Page Like a Pro

After diving into the perfect contact page earlier this week, I thought that some examples were in order. So, I went through some of the Alt Speaker's pages to find seven stand out contact pages.

  • Mel of You Are My Fave keeps things very simple with only five sentences - she includes her email address and explains who should contact her and why.
  • PJ of A Girl Named PJ spells out for her readers that the email submission box goes right to her inbox and that all emails will be answered as soon as possible.
  • Ashlee of Ashlee Marie explains that her family comes first and that emails are answered once a month at her convenience. Such an honest way to prioritize and keep things manageable.
  • Tiffany of The Tiffany Han states who should NOT email her and why.
  • Erin of Earnest Home Co. breaks it down into categories - wholesale, returns, press inquires, and advertising.
  • Jess from Rain to Shine keeps it really simple with an email and submission box.
  • And, Rachel of Handmade Charlotte adds links to her social media as a way to communicate with her along with an email.

Of course, every blog community, business, and situation is different so it is best to take a good long look at what there is to offer and who might be wanting to get in contact.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
