WooCommerce is the leading eCommerce platform used on websites today* and it works pretty seamlessly with Divi. Divi has it’s own shop module in it’s page builder making it super easy to add your products, and even if you’d like to do a bit more customizing there’s plenty of other ways to do that and a near unlimited amount of resources to help you along.

Great advice as always guys re: Woo!
I’m really looking forward to next week’s chat about Building a Company Around Divi (if that’s correct). As a thought experiment it would be fascinating to hear how each of you would start a web design business from scratch today.
Here’s some topic ideas:
Would you exclusively use Divi, or branch off into Elementor & SquareSpace for brochure-style sites for very fast & competitively priced builds to bulk up your portfolio?
How would you market your services? Cold-calling local businesses, Upwork, Fiverr, Craigslist, Tradeshows, word-of-mouth? Would you highlight your ultra-low fees or focus on targeting pain points and not consider client costs despite your weak portfolio?
Are there email, etc. templates you would use to handle the bulk of client communications? For instance Elegant Marketplace has a “Business & Marketing Tools” section, plus there’s a myriad of free/paid business templates available free online.
Would you invest in CRM, etc. software out-of-the-gate, and try to automate your sales funnel/customer service as much as possible, despite having made little to no sales yet?
What free/paid training portals would you use to get up to speed? Would you focus more heavily on design, coding, or marketing?
Would you start alone or from what you know now, only start in a team environment?
What tools do you feel are necessary to maximize profits while reducing expenses out-of-the-gate? Would you go with a developer, annual, per site license?
Just a few ideas, looking forward to next week!
Wow thanks for sharing all these great topic ideas! Our next episode will be about growing one’s team but building a company around Divi will definitely be coming up! We may start saying at the end of each episode what the next topic will be if it will help anyone.
Thanks so much for listening! 😀
