In this week’s episode, we discuss the latest released feature in Divi and we through out a shout out to Tim Strifler and David Blackmon who are launching their Divi Experts course on August 1st! We are joining in and can’t wait to share the lessons learned in upcoming podcasts!
What’s up Divi Addicts, welcome to episode number 15 of the podcast, we’re pretty amped about today, this is going to be a little different than most of the episodes. So far, we’re talking about a handful of things. And one really exciting thing. So stick around, let’s jump right into the podcast.
So I want to take you on a journey, picture, that you just opened up the Visual Builder on a blank page inside of WordPress. And you’ve loaded up one of Elegant Themes templates. And like I said, you’re inside the Visual Builder. And you’ve got one, let’s say the agency layout packet. And you know, there’s a lot of yellow in that pack. But yellow doesn’t really fit your color scheme and you want to do I know blue, you can open up the background module, or one of the header modules and go to the background settings and right click and select, Find and Replace. And you can change the background colors throughout the entire webpage. In one click, adjust the settings change the color to the new color, say where you want to make the change if it’s just in this module or the entire page. And then you’re off the whole all the yellow turns to blue.
Imagine how powerful that is, and how, how many different ways you can change things, you know, fonts, any of those things, borders, all of it, you know, it’d be such as unreal, the power to be able to do all those changes at once. And take those take those design flows to the next level. Because it we’ve talked about it many times here on the podcast is that it’s all about how you can streamline the process, make the design portion go quicker, it’s better for you as a business, it’s better for your client, because they can get a website fast.
So it also helps drive down those those development costs, which is better for everyone. So we’re really, I can’t say it enough about how excited we are, and how happy we are with the way Elegant Themes is developing Divi. Like it’s continual value every single week, there’s new features, or new sneak peeks or two new layout packs. You know, it’s just, it’s just an amazing framework in an amazing community led by a really incredible team who’s doing some great work. So we can’t say enough about how excited we are about that.
Now, I don’t know why I like that little Game Center sound so much, because it reminds me of being a kid playing video games back in the arcade in the late 80s, early 90s. It just makes me happy when I hear it. Hope you enjoy it too. Don’t second part of this, this podcast today we’re going to go a little longer and break the traditional format. But there’s something I have to talk about something I’m really excited for that. It’s launching in just a couple of days actually. And that is if you’re familiar with the name’s Tim Strifler and David Blackman. I just found out that David and I actually, he doesn’t live there anymore. digital nomad kind of roaming the country, but he lived in the same city I live in town, I went to college, and just a great a great city voter with some really amazing people, which I’ll sadly be leaving pretty soon. As soon as we can sell our house. that’s a that’s a bummer.
You know many of you, I’m sure if you listen to the podcast, more than one or two episodes, you can always tell there’s a little bit of road noise in the background. Because I rig up my stuff before I leave the house. And I just hit the record button. And I started talking, you know, for this podcast, and I do it while I’m on the road hands free safety first, you know, but it’s that time where I have an hour in between my home and the office where I can really just lay out the thoughts, talk to you and share what’s the latest and greatest in a Divi space.
So this one I’m it’s just one of those things I’m really excited for because we’re going to continue to grow this business, I’m going to continue to build up Keegan Lanier Media, bring on clients, become more efficient, offer better products. And it’s people like David and Tim, who are in my opinion, some of the leaders in this space and people that I look up to their work you know, it’s it’s phenomenal work with the plugins that they do Divi Bars, Divi Overlays. David’s done some amazing tutorials and they’re doing great products as well. And it’s just some of those things that you know, you find somebody that you you admire the work that they’re doing. And you want to sit at the learning tree. And that’s kind of what I’m doing. They’re, they’re launching their Divi business experts course, August 1.
And as soon as I got the email from Tim from the newsletter saying that they were starting this, I jumped over to WP gears.com, and I signed up, you know, I think I got a 25% discount the course normally, it’ll be about 600 bucks, 590 something I believe, and I got it for 400 and something dollars. I’m not exactly sure what I spent on it, but I believe it’s going to be absolutely worth it. Because I know the type of work, the quality that David and Tim put out. And I’m just really excited for all of the modules. You know, it’s the contract pieces. I feel like ours are pretty good. They’re pretty tight. But it’s always nice to peek under the hood at somebody else’s work and see what they’re using and what’s brought them a lot of success. I think it’s going to be a huge benefit to our clients. Some very excited, and I can’t wait to kick off this, this Divi business experts podcast very, very, very soon.
So um, you know, that’s the last bit that’s what I really want to talk about. Throw a shout out to Tim and David. And if you’re interested in launching your Divi course I mean, sorry, your Divi business, you want to join this Divi course and go over to WP gears.com and just get in it before it fully launches. Because it’s if you’re interested in doing a Divi business or a web business at all, this is a great place to start. I’m already not even in the first day and I’m excited about it and I know it’s going to bring value to me. So check it out. And and tell Tim and David that you were sent by Keegan. Hope you guys have an extremely productive and awesome week. But we’ll catch you in the next episode of Divi addicts. Peace.
