Building Online Communities for Tomorrow

CommunitiesToday much of our communication is done electronically through email or text. Therefore, building online communities of like-minded people is key. What else is the drive that brings similar people together and into relationships? One of our goals and aspirations is to strive to build online communities of tomorrow where people can share information and get to know one another similar to other social mediums.

Our business focus is on communications and humans have always had a desire to communicate with one another. It was since the dawn of man that we have been communicating with each other in various methods and also invented methods and technologies to do so. Pushing the envelop to create niche online communities in various formats is no different. Whether it be a cooking community, dating community or just a tip sharing community, groups who enjoy the common theme will come together.

The core of our online communities is WordPress and plugins such as Buddypress, BBPress and Wp Dating. These core extras add to WordPress the ability to easily create communities which was once difficult without a programmer. What makes us unique as people is that we all fall into a niche of one kind or another. Those niches are the building blocks of communities and organizations. Organizations built around common niches and values will draw similar people and that is the same with online communities. Our goal is to bring people together through online communication and common interests using a web publishing platform [Wordpress] that is getting to be known more and more worldwide.

Developing WordPress Sites with Divi Builder

One of the newest features we’re offering clients is developing WordPress Sites with the Divi page builder technology from Elegant Themes. What makes this feature so great? It allows for complete page design and customization in a drag and drop and inline formating.
Everything is seen live as it happens rather than having to go back and forth between the front end that the visitor sees and the back end editor. Now everything can be seen and done in real time. There are over 40 modules to choose from to deliver content. If we’re not happy, it can easily be modified or undone.

Divi logoThe biggest benefit from developing using the Divi builder is getting the look one wants. It’s hard to find a theme in a library and make it work the way you want. Not to mention, once plugins are added, we’re not sure how everything will work together. With Divi it all just comes together and the possibilities are endless! There are also many predesigned layouts and themes for various markets that can serve as the starting point or inspiration.

This dynamic website design tool will take matching a theme to a customer much easier than before. In the past, we would work with the customer to filter through many different catalogs of themes before coming to a decision. Then the theme had to be customized to the colors and layout. This tool allows us to start from scratch and build what is wanted without having to spend hours looking, customizing and debugging.

Once you see how the Divi Builder system works, you will like it too and make updating your site easier. With a little training,
