Make Your Contact Us Pages Stand OutBy Erika Ritzer
November 6, 2015
Contact Us pages are one of the most heavily trafficked pages of your site on both desktop and mobile devices, yet they are often overlooked. Most firms don’t fully utilize this page and choose to simply display their address and phone number. Why not bring the same creativity displayed on your site to this page as well. Add visual elements to make the page more interesting. No need to have a tiny map—make it large so viewers can actually read it. Or use satellite imagery that is readily available. Lastly it can be an opportunity to push information while still displaying how to get found. Here are a few sites we found that have noteworthy Contact Us pages:
Most firms choose to display a boring picture of their office on their Contact Us page. No offense, but we guessed you work in an office. Welikesmall, a digital agency based out of Salt Lake City, strays from the norm by using an aerial shot of their studio as the background of their Contact page.
We hope contacting this firm is a little easier than sending in a message in a bottle but Digital Base’s Contact Us page uses clever imagery nonetheless.
The Kenwood Restaurant in Minneapolis wants everyone to know exactly where to find them and what better way to do this than putting a huge map on their Contact page? It’s even wittily captioned, “For cartographers we’re easy to find. Others might employ navigation.”
Clients need to know where your firm has offices and you shouldn’t make it hard for them to find. Grimshaw makes it simple to find a location by clearly plotting points on a large map and listing each address above.
