But if you can reuse the code written by other programmers, why should you spend so much time building one for you? Why should we reinvent the wheel? And there are so many cool Bootstrap footers available on the Internet, which can be used on your website with just a few modifications. So I think making some changes to a cool, free footer so that it fits well on your website is a good idea. It will save you time.
The footer of a website is a very important component. There are many interesting benefits of having a footer on your website. Many people ignore this important website element. They don’t spend much time designing a footer. But you should give importance to it as it’s a valuable component of a website, just like any other components of a website such as a header, home page, and the navigation bar.
This blog post walks you through the best free Bootstrap footer examples. But before taking a look at the footer examples, let’s briefly talk about why we should care about a footer.
Why should you care about a footer?
A footer can improve user-experience to a great extent. It saves users so much time. People generally look for contact information at the bottom of a website in the footer section. So if you don’t have a footer on your site, your visitors may leave your site when they cannot find any contact information at the bottom simply because they don’t want to spend much time for this, they want things very quickly. And it’s very logical, they should definitely avoid wasting time. If they don’t quickly find the contact information on your site, they may perform a quick Google search and find an alternative website that provides similar services. So you may lose customers.
Even if they spend some time to find the contact information on your website, it negatively affects the user experience. But if your contact info is visible in the site footer, people will be able to quickly find it because most people know that contact information can be found at the bottom of a site. They will scroll down to the bottom of the page thinking that the contact info is there at the bottom. Showing the contact info, links to important pages, and links to your social pages in the site footer will be very convenient for the users. So it’s of great importance to have a footer on a website.
Your website’s conversion rate will also increase if you place a signup button or some offering in the footer section. Many people have been able to increase site engagement by putting links in this section and they also have been able to significantly increase sales showing buttons or links to your products or services in the footer.
