55: Picking A Website Framework
The look and feel of your website are all determined by the framework you choose. For the past few years, we’ve been addicted to Divi. It’s always updating, growing and bring value. Elegant Themes hit a homerun with Divi and we couldn’t be any happier with our choice.

In this episode, we’re going to help you pick a website framework that’s going to help decide the look and the feel of your WordPress website.
So before we jump into today’s episode, we have a quick quick message from one of our sponsors. So ladies and gentlemen, we’re at the episode where we talk about the actual namesake of this podcast. This is the Divi addicts podcast, you know how much we love Divi. We’ve talked about it for 50 episodes, before we jumped into this new structure. Do you know where we’re going with this, you know exactly which framework we’re going to pick. And that is Divi from Elegant Themes. Now, there’s a lot of options out there. A lot of really good options. You can look at oxygen builder, you can go with Beaver Builder, you can go with Elementor they’re all good, and they all have positives.
But none of them in our opinion, compare in feature set. Most importantly, in the value you get from Divi. I mean Divi puts out two full layout packs every single week. Plus their blog is really one of the most read WordPress resources that you can find. And there’s hundreds and hundreds of articles to help you extend what Divi can do to get better to find the right plugins to read the stories of people who’ve been successful using Divi, to finding guys like Josh Hall, who are putting articles up about how Divi and Elegant Themes changed his life, as he’s able to start his own freelance web development company, have a family grow and have the freedoms to run his own business. Like if these are just cool, awesome stories. And they exist in every community in WordPress, but none stronger than in the Divi community.
So that’s why we pick the framework. That’s why we pick Divi. That’s why we’re so passionate about Divi. And that’s why we named our podcast after that theme. It’s just unreal. You can copy and create different templates, you can duplicate pages, the efficiencies in the workflows are just unbelievable. They do such an awesome job of helping make sure that the people who work within the framework have something that’s strong, something that’s fast, and something that’s always growing, they continue to put out new features that extend the capabilities of the theme, while also focusing on keeping it as minimalistic as possible. And keeping it small in size so that it can load fast. These guys are they’re not amateurs, I know Nick Roach is is really unbelievably talented. And the product they put out just continues to wow and amaze.
If you’ve never used it, go to Elegant Themes website, take Divi’s Visual Builder for a test run. And if you’re interested in using the theme and actually purchasing it, I’ll leave a link below. And as I’ve said in all these episodes, it is an affiliate link, I will get a small commission, but I don’t care. If you use the link, you can go to Elegant Themes.com, and you can use your own path to get the theme to sign up for a sign up for an account. Whether you use it by the year or you buy the lifetime, I would highly recommend buying the lifetime. It’s worth it. I promise you if you have the money, do it. Get a small client that you can design a website for it’ll pay for itself, even if it’s a $400 website and all that money goes to getting Divi, everything down the road will be profit because you won’t spend the 50 to 60 or $80 that it will cost you to buy an individual theme I promise you absolutely worth it.
So we hope that this has really helps you decide that Divi is the framework for you. There’s a million other reasons, all of the Facebook groups, all 50 episodes of the Divi addicts podcast before we jumped into season three and this new format, they all will help you reinforce why it’s the right call why it’s the right decision. And if that’s not enough, all you got to do is jump on the Twitter and tweet at Keegan elmedia and ask us any question you have be happy to answer it would love nothing more than to talk with you about Divi and why we think it’s the right call for you whether you’re doing a single website, but even more so if you’re going to be developing websites for others.
