You Don’t Want New Business that Badly?
I was recently searching around for a specific freelancer and wanted to utilize their services. I came across their web site and found that they had no “contact” page. They had an “about me” and “portfolio” page, but no means of contact. Also listed on the site was their Twitter feed… the next best solution, right? It would have been but, the user hadn’t made a tweet for several months, and they also disabled their “direct messaging” feature. So I eventually said, forget that!
The bottom line is, if you are an online business or freelancer, why would you make it so hard for people to get in contact with you. I can see this being an issue if you are overwhelmed with business and email requests, but most of the time this isn’t the case.

Even if you aren’t running off of WordPress, it’s still important to have your contact information readily available, even if it is just an email address or an active link to your social media accounts.
