Sometimes the first place people look for information on your website is the last place you think about. In particular, I’m talking about your page footer.
The page footer is that part at the very bottom of your web page: but it shouldn’t be the last thing you think about as far as site design goes.
You don’t want to clutter your main site navigation with too many pages, so consider the footer a good place for some of that additional information. With the CityMax.com website builder, you can quickly and easily add the same footer to all your site pages, but we’ll get to that in a minute.
Here are some of our suggestions for what to put in your footer:
People generally feel better buying when they know more about your company – especially when it comes to shopping online. Use an About Us page to help visitors learn about your business, people, and values.
Like an About Us page, people want to know that you exist in real life, and that if they need to get a hold of you, they can. Even if you don’t have a physical location to provide, offer up a phone number or email address where you can be reached.
Before even browsing your products, many people look for shipping information to see if you’ll send to their location – a footer is a great place to put this kind of info.
Address & Contact Info
Last but not least, your footer is a great place to put your contact information. Your address, phone number, email address – any way you want them to be able to get in contact with you is appropriate (if not expected) in this area.
As far as creating your website footer, you can set it up page by page if you want to make subtle tweaks to each one, but we recommend creating one standard footer for each page.
In the website builder, you can quickly set up content for your footer and apply it to any page you like – just go to Edit Site > Site-wide Footer and select the pages you want the footer to show on.
