Biography - 1st person or 3rd person?

I'm working on a website which offers web design and online marketing services to offline businesses. For the biography, should I use 1st person or 3 rd person? Any advice on writing a good bio page for this niche?

Thanks!

    I wouldn't spend any time worrying about it, especially at the cost of delaying getting your business going. Just throw something up that includes your relevant experience. You can update it anytime you want later, if you feel the need.

    Third person is for biographies which is the story of someone else's life.

    First person is for your autobiography, which is your story.

    Oh, I see now. Your thread title had the word 'biography' in it so I thought that was what you were asking at first.

    Yes, for the bio, you'll want to do third person.

    Thanks for all! The reason I asked this question is because I see some websites use 3rd person and some websites use 1st person when it comes to "About Us" page. So, not sure which one is better. May be I use the word "biography" incorrectly.

    If you want to write a biography - that should always be in third person.
    But in about us section, you should use first person plural- we, us etc


    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
