How to Edit Footer in Divi

E-commerce websites frequently overlook their Divi Footers. The majority of businesses see the footer as a final graphic on a page. Some people view it as a typical navigation menu. However, if we customize it properly, this minor component of a website can greatly benefit your business. You can also use the stunning Divi Flexile Footer layouts for that purpose.

In this post, we will discuss two things about Divi Footers.

  1. Things that should be kept in mind when you create or edit footer in Divi.
  2. How to edit footer in Divi using theme customizer.
  3. How to edit footer in Divi using Divi builder.

Let’s first discuss some of the prior and necessary things that should be kept in mind while creating or editing the footer in Divi.

1. Footer Menu

You always plan to add a superb navigation scheme to the top menu which would be helpful for the users to browse your website easily. That serves the purpose for the first-time visitors but if the same thing is done with the Footer menu, it has the capability to fulfill the needs of regular and repeated users extending the navigation capabilities of a website.

2. Call to Action

Call to Action elements are always good for your business website. When the user reaches the end of your website he becomes more attentive in the search for proper information. You can include your Newsletter signup box on the footer for quick lead acquisition. Including an input field for the user’s Email would also be a good idea to collect user information.

3. Keyword Strategy

The footer would be a smart location to place keywords. You can accommodate important keywords in the footer links and sentences to take your SEO strategy one step ahead.

4. Social Media

This is also a part of marketing and brand promotion. You can also feature the social media profiles on the footer which would be helpful in generating leads from the social media platforms.

Essential components of a footer

Before starting up things you should also have an understanding of the crucial components of a footer for almost all types of websites. Let’s quickly go through them.

1. Logo

The logo of the Brand must be included as it is a part of the brand promotion and awareness. Your brand identity can be further developed in the page footers. Use the header logo in the footer after making a few minor adjustments.

2. Privacy Policy Link

Legally, Privacy Policy agreements must be in place if you gather personal information from users, such as their email addresses or payment information. This makes it crucial to create a legally compliant privacy policy and include it in the footer.

3. Copyright Notice

To prevent someone from duplicating a picture, animation, paragraph, or otherwise attempting to steal content from your website, the Copyright Notice is required. The copyright symbol and the year that the website was published can both be displayed in the footer.

4. Contact Information

You need to make it as simple as possible for prospective leads to contact you. That’s why website footers frequently include contact information like company mail, phone number, or mailing address.

5. Email-sign up

You may improve your consumer base and create more leads by using your footer. To engage a visitor who recognizes the value of your content and wants more, it would be a good idea to include an Email sign-up form in the footer.

6. Social Media Icons

Another option for potential customers to contact you is through social media. It is therefore a best practice to include social profile icons and links in the footer of your website.

After understanding all these aspects of footer customization, now we can take the next leap to edit the footer in Divi using theme customizer.

The first way to edit the Divi footer is through the theme customizer of WordPress. Navigate to Appearance >> Customize and the theme customizer will open up with a set of customization options.

For that, you only need to add it to the global footer from the Theme Builder settings.
