How to make things align in a footer

I can't get my social media buttons to align left or right on the footer of my website. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, can anyone please help?

I have tried margin-left, margin-right, float: left, float: right

This is what I have and all it does is center.

HTML <footer class="container-fluid text-center"> <div class="row" id="contact"> <p class="col-sm-4"></p> <h1>Reach me here</h1><br><br> <a href="https://twitter.com/Aarons_coding" target="_blank"> <img src="images/twitter.png" alt="twitter" id="twitt"><br/> Follower me </a> <a href='https://www.facebook.com/freelancecoding/posts/1534409766779543' target="_blank"> <img src="images/fb.png" alt="fb" id="fb"><br/>Like Me on FB </a> <a href='https://www.linkedin.com/in/aaron-s-706193125' target="_blank"> <img src="images/link.png" alt="linkedin" id="link"><br/>Connect with me </a>

            <li><a href="#top">Top</a></li>
            <li><a href="#design">About the Designer</a></li>

maybe you should try this attribute - display: inline-block; and then float left or right
