How Great Web Design Grows Your Audience

  1. In fact, I didn’t know the importance of the blog interface when I start my first blog. But, from time to time, I really know how it is important. Now I have a good theme for my WordPress blog (you can check it right now) and I’d glad when many of my friend asked me what WordPress theme I’m using and how they can get one.

  2. Couldn’t agree more. I’m currently building a WP website with 2 reasons in mind, good content and building that list. Why am I writing here right now? Because I read this post in my email and wanted to comment!

  3. I’ve used plugins like pop-up domination and had my own newsletter landing page set-up and linked to through my site’s navigation… It’s only been about a month since I’ve installed Generate and conversions are up. No pop-ups, just the “Generate Box”.

    Gotta say, it works wonderfully well and it’s great that it does right out of the box!

    • And some of the pop-up plugins out there have been known to problems with performance or security, so this is a nice alternative. (Plus for me as a reader it makes me feel less like stabbing anyone.) 😉

  4. The Generate theme is exactly what I was looking for. I installed and customized it on my blog this week. Too early to report subscribe numbers but I”m confident they’ll go up. Thanks for designing a great theme!

  5. I need some convincing. I built a simple blog using Headway. I learned a lot, sweat a lot, cried a lot. Is my blog attractive? Some days I think so, some I don’t. My problem (and why I’m leaving a comment) is that Headway moved on and I probably cannot (successfully) convert my current version to the newest/greatest Headway release. Plus the version I have now will no longer be supported in Feb. I’m bummed. I invested hours upon hours and it is all for nothing? Convince me to switch to your theme. I am in the very early stages of attempting to monetize my site. I’m linking to more sites and leaving more comments to get people to read my posts. I LOVE the idea of the email subscribe reminder and haven’t so far found a plug-in to fit this need. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated! Thank you!

  6. Out of all the Genesis themes I like the Generate Theme the most. I’m not looking to switch my layout at the moment but when I do I’ll certainly look seriously at this theme. I’m assuming I could use my iContact account with the email sign-up section?

    • That section (the Generate Box as we call it) is actually just a text widget. That being said, you should be able to drop in your iContact form code and with a little styling you should be good to go.

  7. Okay, I may not need as much convincing as I originally thought :). I kept searching some of your links and found, PROSE. I love it. I’m a writer at heart. Not published mind you, but I love to write and connect to my readers. Question: What is the easiest way to convert my young blog to the Genesis Framework and the Prose child theme? Also, I don’t have advertisers (yet 🙂 so could I rename this or use for an alternate purpose? I understand a little code but not enough to conduct a full-fledged new design…and as you know, Headway is point and click design too, so it’s comfortable to me. Thanks!

    • Carrie – I took a look at your site, and it looks really straightforward. With Prose, you can easily create something very similar to what you have now, I see you have a custom header, a custom background and footer widgets – all of which Prose has. Aside from that, it would simply require you to use the Design Settings that Prose offers to match the colors and fonts. 🙂

  8. I’ve been looking for a way to add this kind of opt in area to my websites and blogs for a while now, but I’ve never found anything that did what I wanted. But this looks great, as everything always does from StudioPress. The only trouble is, I’ll need to change all my themes over again!

    Having said that, since you said that the Generate area is just a text widget, is there a way to incorporate it into other StudioPress themes?
