The success of your website design business depends much on how nice your websites look.
In this lesson, we’ll learn How to Build a Website Visually Using the Divi Visual Builder.
Welcome! I’m Leighton, your webmaster. Today, we’re going to dive right in and build a web page! Remember, the success of your website design business depends much on how nice your websites look.

Why wouldn’t you choose that photographer? Because, as important as the head knowledge and branding are, the end result is what the client is left with. Similarly, your website design business will only be as successful as the design of the websites themselves. That’s what businesses will talk about. Not how fun your logo is. Not how catchy your domain name is. But how good you make them look.

Here’s the point: Your success at this business also depends on how comfortable and proficient you are at building a website.
