I am working on a new website with limited pages. I work out of my home.
Can I put the business e-mail and phone number on the home page instead of having a separate contact page?

Thanks leah, but just so I'm clear, I should've asked "is it professional?"

Absolutely. Probably easier for the potential customers, too, as they don't have to do any additional clicking.

I agree....

I would definately put it on the home page. I hate going to websites and having to hunt down the contact info. For a service based business I expect the phone and email on the front page. When I was planning my wedding last year, if the website was the least bit frustrating, I would move on to another vendor. I know it's shallow but if I didn't have my heart set on a vendor, I wasn't going to fuss with a bad website.

All restaurants and bars put their number right on the front page so it's definately not unusual. Good luck with your website.

I even like to see the location of the business on the home page. It gets really frustrating sometimes trying to figure out whether this vendor is anywhere near you, or not.

You should put contact information, whether a button to get to the contact page or the phone number written out, on every page!

A lot of businesses I look at have it at the bottom of the page. Their address/phone/fax/email or any other contact information you might need. This is the first place I always look, i scroll to the bottom of the page if it's not easily found at the top or to the left side.
