There’s a pretty big misconception out there that your website has to be “custom-built” from scratch for it to look unique and stylish.
Truthfully, a custom-built website is a pain in the ass. It often means that only your designer/developer can update it for you. Who has time for that?
The awesome thing about WordPress is that you can have a custom “looking” website without the 10K budget just by choosing a WordPress Theme.
Why I Love Divi
Now there are a lot of WordPress themes on the market, but the one I found to be perfect for any type of website I’ve built has been Divi by Elegant themes! Here’s my top 3 reasons why I love Divi and why you’ll love it too!
Drag and Drop Visual Page Builder
Divi makes editing your website really easy with it’s drag-and-drop visual page builder. You can use the drag-and-drop builder to easily create a new page or blog post and see your changes in real-time. You can also learn as you go while using the builder with the Divi Help System. Currently, it includes over 70 full-length tutorial videos.

Divi comes with over 82 layouts that you can use as a starting point for your web design. Plus the developers and community are always creating new templates for almost every imaginable industry you can think of (makeup artists, plumbers, writers, etc). The best part is that you don’t have to start from scratch. You can easily change out the text and images from one of the premade templates to fit your business.
Elements For Everything
As you can see from the above image, Divi comes with elements for almost everything you can think of. Need to add a video slider to your page? There’s an element for it. Need to add a testimonial? There’s an element for it. Need to add an email opt-in? There’s an element for that too! Plus you can utilize other great features like A/B testing, CSS3 animations, background gradients, and more. Just about any fancy feature you’ve seen on your favorite website can be done with Divi.
