Site PagesThere are a few site pages (or admin
pages) that your website needs to have in order to appear trustworthy and reliable and serious. Without these pages
in place visitors will trust you less, and building relationship with them will be much more difficult.
These are the site pages that you should have on your website:

- About Me/Us

Disclosure StatementA disclosure statement is a document that contains everything there is to know about
the business opportunity and the seller's company. As applying to a website or online business it is concerning how
you are earning commissions from your website or online business.
So, you also need a disclosure statement on your website, which explains how you earn revenues off of your site,
if people have to pay for your services and so on.

About Me/UsMany people head straight to the "About Me" or "About Us" page when they visit a website for

- Mailing address and/or phone number(s)
- Hours of Operation

implementing these pages in your site, so just go ahead and do it!
