The Footer appears at the bottom of a page and is not considered the most important part of a website. Whereas before the footer contained nothing more than contact details and copyright information, now web designers are embracing the possibilites of a multi-functional footer.
Today’s web designer is coming up with creative designs for the footer. More space is given, sometimes up to half a page and can include anything from a contact form, twitter updates, a secondary navigation to various calls to action. Overall it is more dynamic and involves the user offering a more user-friendly experience.
So, its time to let go of minimal information and open to the possibilites of including more on your business and yourself. Take the opportunity to remind the user why they came to your website in the first place and give them the opportunity to interact with your website, it will keep them happy.
