Business Tools, Services, & Plugins

These are the tools, services, and plugins I use and recommend to power both Divi Soup and Divi Academy. All of them come highly recommended for function, value, support, and simplicity. I would not be without any one of them.

Divi

How could we not start with Divi, the foundation of my business! Just in case you have been hiding under a rock somewhere, Divi is the ultimate WordPress Theme & Page Builder Plugin. Created by Elegant Themes, when you join their annual or lifetime membership, you get access to every one of their themes, but Divi is the only one you will ever need!.

LifterLMS

LifterLMS is a free learning management system plugin with premium addons that lets you easily set up courses and memberships on your WordPress site. It works fantastically well with Divi and is more intuitive and easy to use than most LMS plugins currently available. I use it to power Divi Academy where I run both courses and a membership focused on learning and earning with Divi.

WP Fusion

WP Fusion is a WordPress plugin that connects what happens on your website to your CRM. Using WP Fusion you can build a membership site, capture new leads, record ecommerce transactions, and much more. I use WP Fusion with Active Campaign and LifterLMS to power Divi Academy and my product launches. And their support is off the charts amazing!

Active Campaign

If you really want to utilise your list to it’s full potential then ActiveCampaign is an absolute must in my opinion. ActiveCampaign helps you increase engagement, convert more customers, and grow your business faster with smart email marketing, intelligent marketing automation, and automated sales pipelines. It’s my go to tool and it powers both Divi Soup and Divi Academy.

Flywheel Hosting

Flywheel is managed WordPress hosting for web freelancers and agencies. If you would rather be developing sites than bothering with hosting issues, Flywheel is in my opinion the best choice. Not only is the support second to none, using Flywheel allows you to utilise staging sites and free SSL and it also negates the need for bulky security, backup and optimisation plugins.

Deposit Photos

I could not be without Deposit Photos. It is my go to resource for stock images and there is never an image I cannot find there. I create a lot of content that requires great images and their’s are very affordable. Especially the new ‘Flexible Plan’ which allows for 30 high-res image downloads per month for $29, plus extra images are just $1 each and any unused downloads rollover to the next month.

G Suite

G Suite is a cloud-based productivity suite that helps teams communicate, collaborate and get things done from anywhere and on any device. Whether you’re a company of one or 100, you can put the power of things like Gmail, Drive (cloud storage), Voice (free phone number w/ voicemail and text!), and Hangouts (video conferencing) behind your business. Give it a try for 14 days absolutely free.

Beginner Resources

These are premium plugins me and my team recommend for beginners. Whilst we no longer use these plugins ourselves, new Divi users will definitely find them very helpful.

Divi Booster

Divi has some amazing functionality but as with anything, there is always room for improvement. Divi Booster by Dan Mossop has over 50 configuration options to give Divi a boost! The majority of the options are turned on and off with just a click and the rest are extremely intuitive, great for beginners.

Divi Switch

As the name suggests, Divi Switch has over 50 switches you can turn on to activate more than 100 customisations in thousands of combinations. The plugin will add a new tab to your Divi Theme Options panel and make it easy to switch features on and off. Some of the current functionality includes overlay transitions, custom button styles, section separators, page loaders and much more.

CSS Hero

If CSS scares the hell out of you then CSS Hero could be just what you need. It has an intuitive interface that uses point and click to edit any element of your WordPress theme. You can adjust fonts, colours, padding, margins, you can even add special effects. Its really easy to deactivate the license for a site in your dashboard and then add it on the next one.

Advanced Resources

These are premium plugins and services that me and my team recommend for those who need more advanced features.

Elegant Marketplace

There is a child theme or plugin solution for just about any situation over at Elegant Marketplace. And the library is growing daily! Many of my Divi Child Theme Course graduates now make a healthy side income selling their creations on EMP. If you have a Divi dilemma you haven’t been able to solve then head on over to EMP and search the marketplace, chances are you’ll find what you need.

Portfolio Posts Pro

Portfolio Posts Pro is a Divi plugin that allows you to display posts and custom posts types in what is essentially the portfolio module. So you can create a filterable grid of posts using category buttons and I used to use it here on Divi Soup before a redesign. You can even open posts in a pop-up! This plugin adds a new module to Divi so its super easy to get started.

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms is easily the most reliable, customizable form plugin available for WordPress, and there is almost nothing it can’t do. Complex notifications, conditional logic, surveys, e-commerce, subscription opt-ins, and great support are just a few of the plugin’s features. For simple forms, it tends to be a bit of an overkill, but for anything beyond that it’s a great choice.

Injector Bundle

The Injector Bundle for Divi and Extra from Tortoise IT is a suite of 6 plugins that ‘inject’ layouts into your site in various places. Create the layout you want, save it to the library and then select the pages, posts and custom post types you want the layouts added to from the settings. If you only invest in one add on for Divi, this is it! (Plugins also available separately)

Formidable Forms

Formidable Forms is a free plugin that is great for forms, but Formidable Forms Pro is an upgrade that adds even more power to your free forms. Multi-page forms, conditional logic, payment form integrations, data management, front-end post submissions for user-generated content, front-end editing, and boat loads more.
