Designing a website is more of an art than being a technical exercise. If you have been into website designing then you would probably know better what I mean. Designing a website requires the channelization of your organizational sense and effective space management. Thus, it’s a task of precision.
The fact that the designed website and especially the home page (and other web pages) carries the first impression of the business/ firm in the mind of the user makes it even more challenging for the designers. Hiring a website designing company thus becomes a need. A best website designing company ensures you of getting that precision, skill and efficacy on board.
However, if you look from the perspective of a web designer then they have to face challenges on a day to day basis as a part of their work. One such challenge is that of designing a website with extra-large footers. This challenge is put by business/firms that have a good number of services to offers or want to spell out more to their visitors about the business.
To handle these challenges all you require is knowledge of some smart techniques and their effective adoption. Well, the adoption part is upon you but the knowledge part is surely on us. Yes, you got that right, we are now going discuss the way through which you can effectively design extra large website footers. So, stay tuned.
- Columnar Arrangement
To accommodate too much in the website footer without messing it all up you can use the columnar arrangement technique. This is a simple and effective way to build those extra-large website footers. Just make hierarchal columns and arrange stuff under them accordingly. Keep mind of the spacing part and the rest would look good.
- Get It Done With Contacts
This works effectively when you have less to accumulate on the footer and yet want something large there. Fill the region with contact information and spice this up with a contact us form. This would be one effective idea for two big reasons:
- One the clients/users can get the contact information easily to get in touch
- Second you can generate leads through the use of contact forms
Thus, a win-win situation for the business point of view.
- Using Social Media Power
Social media is the common street of the global village these days. All the digital marketing strategies keep social media at forefront. Similarly, you can utilize the power of social media connections in your website footer. Add your social media connects at the footer. Well, you anyways are going to add them on the website. So, why, use them as distracters on the top of the web page when they can be assets at the end of it.
- Get The Logos And Graphics Do The Talking
Logos are the identity of a business. It is the one way through which the users/clients recognize the brand/firm. To make the image of logo printed in the mind of users get it right there (well it would obviously be there on the top) on the footer. But note that it should not be alone at the footer add an attractive graphic (in sync with your business and domain) with a contextual sense. This would probably be one of the fines way for designing the extra-large footers.
- Content Marketing
This one can be the idea for websites that deal with sharing, posts, idea, blogs, etc. Content marketing is one effective element of digital marketing. To fill the space down there with multiple-content slides/slabs can be a good idea. If you don’t want to fill it up with content then have a mix of content with other elements (mentioned above).
You can also opt for e-mail marketing if you feel that goes well for the type of business for which the website is being created.
