Choosing a Website Theme Builder

Choosing a Website Theme Builder

CHOOSING A WEBSITE THEME BUILDER

After you purchase a Web Host plan and your Domain Name, you’re ready to start building your website. As you will quickly discover, there are a lot of choices for builders. Some Web Hosts provide an in-house builder which are ok but if you don’t want to spend any money on a builder, I strongly suggest installing WordPress. It’s free and has become the standard platform for most websites these days. It has its’ own builder too.

However, we as Affiliate Marketers don’t want to be just standard and generic. We want, nay, need to stand out from the crowd but how can we accomplish this? Paid Theme Builders. There is so much more you can do with paid builders using specialized “elements”. You can turn that boring look into a cool modern looking design without an ounce of design creativity in your body.

As I said, there are a lot of choices out there so which one do you pick? It depends on what you want to accomplish with your site. There were two that I used exclusively, namely OptimizePress and Divi. I say “were” two because I just recently purchased a new builder which I will talk about later in this post. For now, I will talk about the two that I have been using for a couple of years and am familiar with. I won’t go into great detail here, but you can find them under the “Reviews” menu tab.

optimizepress

OptimizePress is, in my honest opinion, the best builder out there – for Affiliate Marketers. Everything was built by AMs for AMs. It has pre-built opt-ins, landing pages, product launch pages, webinars, funnels, everything you need as an Affiliate Marketer to get your site built as fast as possible with most of the designing done for you. You will still want to change some things around to match your branding, or you can leave it as is and just replace the text and graphics.

The pricing isn’t bad either. Only $99/year for a 1-site license. This plan doesn’t come with the Funnel Builder or their own opt-in form. Nor can you do A/B Split-testing. If you have the budget, I suggest getting the plan up for $199/year. This includes a 20-site license and everything you need to build affiliate websites as easy as possible. This is what I use for my Affiliate Marketing sites.

 

Divi WordPress Theme

Divi is the other builder I use for everything else including website flips. It is really easy to use with its color-coded system to create your sections, rows, columns, and so forth. I love it so much that shortly after purchasing the 1-year plan, I upgraded to the Lifetime license. And they were nice enough to pro-rate my upgrade, so I didn’t get charged for two plans.

Their pricing is the best around for all that you get. For only $89/year you get hundreds of pre-built layout packs for…you name it – cryptocurrency, plumber, carpenter, marketer, and on and on. You also get Extra, which is a magazine style theme (I love this), Bloom, which is their email opt-in form plug-in, Monarch, which is their Social Media plug-in, and unlimited sites to build with Divi, unlike only one site for OptimizePress’s $99 plan.

And if you love building with Divi as much as I do, you will want to consider purchasing their lifetime plan for only $249. But if you can wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you can purchase lifetime for only $189, I think. Or maybe it was only $149. I can’t remember what I paid on Cyber Monday a few years ago.

 

Now that I have shared with you two of the best builders for us Affiliate Marketers, I just discovered a third one that I am enjoying using. As a matter of fact, this website you are on right now is being built with it. When the product launched, I checked it out to see if it was something I wanted to review and post on this website.

At first, I wasn’t going to bother because it uses the Elementor builder. Even though Elementor has a free plan, it is very limited and doesn’t have the necessary tools needed for a marketing site like the above-mentioned builders, so I stopped trying to build a site with it. To compete, I would have to purchase the 1-site license for only $49/year. I will say this is an excellent price, but one site doesn’t work for me. So, I would need to purchase the next plan up which is a 25-site license for $199/year. Double the price of OP and Divi.

Back to the product launch, after reading the sales page more, I saw all the elements that are included, checked out the demo sites, and I realized that this is worth my time to test and review. So, I purchased it and I’m glad I did.

This particular builder was created specifically to design and sell websites to local businesses. I bought it because I could see how to use it for other purposes. Keep in mind though that if you are interested in selling websites to local business, this is perfect. It’s just not my thing. I don’t like doing cold calls. Even though I could make money this way, I wouldn’t enjoy it so it would go against what I preach.

This is a theme builder plug-in for WordPress that includes 100 niche specific layouts, one-click site import, over 500 pre-built pages, royalty free images, customizable header, global theme colors, and so much more. The included elements have some really cool effects. As you peruse this site, you will undoubtedly see them.

The price went up some because the product launch event is over, but it is still very affordable at only $49.99. You can install on unlimited sites and sell the sites to your client’s domain. You cannot sell the themes you create. I don’t know if the lifetime access is still part of the deal or if that was only for the product launch. I just requested permission to sell this as an affiliate. When approved, I will ask them if it is still lifetime and come back to update this post.
