How to Find the Footer on AWeber (AKA The “About” Section)

AWeber is one of the best email marketing platforms available. It is extremely popular amongst bloggers, journalists, and businesses that want to stay in touch with their audience after the article has been published. If you want to know how to find the footer (aka about section) on AWeber, then this article is for you.

The Basics

To get started, login to your AWeber account and click on the cog in the upper right-hand corner to bring up your dashboard. From there, navigate to Marketing –> Copy and click on the big green Get Copies button in the top right-hand corner to generate new leads.

If you want to find the “About” section on a page, simply scroll down past the fold until you see a heading that says “Here’s where you can find out more about AMO Creative.” Click on the link and you’ll be taken to the page that contains all of the available info about the company. From the homepage, you can also access the FAQs and the Get In Touch sections which are worth checking out.

Find The Footer In The About Us Page

On the about us page, you’ll find a small section at the bottom that contains a lot of useful information. Often this is referred to as the footer because it’s the last section of the page and it doesn’t have any content in it. To find the footer, simply scroll down past this section until you see a section that looks like the one below it.

Above is a screenshot of the about us page of Gilt. The footer is the section that appears above the green Get In Touch with us button.

You can also find the about us page on the homepage by clicking on the blue More button at the top of the page.

As you can see, the footer is the area below the fold and above the section that contains the Get In Touch button. In most cases, this is the place where you want to include a brief bio about your company with a link to your website.

More Than Meets The Eye

The footer is actually a couple of different things. It can be the “about” section of your website or it can be the “legal” section. On some sites, this is also the place where you’ll find contact details or an “affiliate” program. Essentially, the footer is the area at the end of the page that contains the navigation bar, social media buttons, and any other site-specific information.

On a large-scale site like WordPress, you’ll often find five or six different footers depending on the role you’re playing — editor, author, designer, etc. — as well as a separate footer for the legal and financial information. Each footer will have a different HTML layout so make sure you’re looking at the right one when you’re editing content or adding new material to a site.

On a smaller scale, the footer can be as simple as the one below which is just a link to the website’s privacy policy.

Your footer will vary depending on what you include in it and how you style it. When creating or editing content, you have the option of putting a box around the section to make it easier to find. You can also add a heading above the link to make it even more prominent or add a sub-heading below it to continue the explanation. For larger companies with separate legal and financial teams, it’s essential to add their respective logos at the bottom of the page along with a contact email address and phone number.

Use This Section For More Than Just The Footer

While it’s easy enough to put a basic footer at the end of a page, you can use this section for much more than that. This is the place where you can add a search bar, social share buttons, and even an opt-in form for subscribers to sign up for your email list.

Depending on the number of pages you have, it’s a good idea to add some functionality into this area. If you have a large number of pages, then consider adding a table of contents or a glossary of terms at the top. If you want to add a contact form, then you can put it in here as well. Essentially, this is the area that expands the most and offers the most value with the least amount of effort.

Find The Right Place For It

When adding content to your site, you have the option of adding it to the end of a blog post or the beginning. When adding material to the beginning, you’ll want to put it in the lead paragraph or first few sentences. As an example, let’s say you’re writing a blog post on the subject of weddings and you want to include a quote from a famous wedding host or planner. Instead of adding it at the end of the post, you can put it in the lead paragraph.

This is because when a reader lands on your page, they’ll immediately want to know what you have to say about weddings and will continue to the next part of your article only to find out that it’s not about weddings but about something completely different. By adding it at the beginning, you’ll give the reader the best chance at sticking around to read the rest of the article.

Always Try To Keep It Organized

It’s easy to lose track of where you put things on a website after a while so it’s important to keep things organized whenever possible. This doesn’t mean that you have to use a rigid structure with your site but using some kind of nested

  • HTML list
  • Unordered list
  • Definition List
  • Or any other kind of list

is a great way to keep things organized. It can be a real pain to search for content on a site that’s not been properly categorized or has no tags at all. When adding new material to your site, try to put it in the right category and add the tags as you go.

If you have a limited number of categories, then consider adding a tag cloud above the article to show the most used tags. This way, you’ll be able to find what you need easily. A good thing to do whenever you add a new article or piece of content to your site is to check for broken links. There’s nothing worse than getting to the end of an article only to find that some of the links are missing or take you to the wrong page. Checking for these kinds of errors before you publish can save you a great deal of frustration later on.

Last but not least: Always double-check for spelling and grammar errors.
