Fresh Ideas for Wordpress Footer Design

Your Wordpress footer design can help you engage better with users and market your expertise more efficiently. Believe it or not, your Wordpress footer is an important part of your online marketing real estate. If you’re not really using it for very much at the moment, here are some fresh ideas for Wordpress footer design – and some must do’s!

  • Place links to your Privacy Policy and your website Terms and Conditions in your wordpress webste footer. These “site wide” links are considered by Google to be completely natural and making them available to your customers/readers wherever they are on your website is reasonable.
  • Consider adding some social media bells and whistles – not just icons with links. There are lots of cool ways you can showcase your social media these days – from Facebook facepiles, Pinterest boards to Instagram montages. Search for widgets and plugins which help you to add your social media activity quickly and easily.
  • Use the footer to help users navigate your site – add links to key pages on your website, your most read blog posts or posts with the most comments.
  • Add a video to the footer. Videos are a cool way to add life into your website. You don’t even have to film yourself, you can create interesting videos using software such as Animoto.
