Footers can be a multi-functional section of your website. On the lowest part of your website, you can write some afterthoughts, you can add your copyright information, some additional links – to your other websites, to your social networks, you can even add twitter updates, some insightful info about you, contact details or whatever you can think of.
As in the rest of your website, you can also be creative with your footer – there’s nothing better than to end the scrolling down with a nice graphical element. So make it visually appealing, but also effective – a great footer can give a small boost to your awareness and it can also drive some internal traffic.
