Building a business on the web ain’t easy…


“There’s no one path that works for everyone.”

– brandiD Team

That’s why we’ve partnered with brandiD to make it easy-er. 😬

We’re excited to tell you about two WordPress themes today! These themes are powerful 💪 and pretty 🖼.

🎉 Introducing ‘Coaching Pro’ and ‘Hello! Commerce’ 🎉

Both themes are attractive, versatile, and build your personal brand. They are good options if you are just starting out or looking to improve your WordPress site.

These themes have plenty of the good stuff:

  • Easy Digital Downloads (EDD) integration (our personal favorite 😉)
  • One-click Setup Wizard to get you started; complete with demo pages, navigation and recommended plugins (it will install EDD for you!)
  • Built on the renowned Genesis Framework; known for blazing speed and reliability
  • Starter pages for Homepage, Blog, About, and Contact
  • Customizable sitewide appearance with the customizer, with real-time previewing
  • Block-based Widget areas for visual building
  • Fully responsive for mobile, tablet, and desktop

About brandiD

brandiD is a branding and web design/development agency started in 2007. They’ve got a lot of experience helping businesses launch and grow on the web by positioning owners and getting their purpose, mission, offers, audience and web presence in sync in order to thrive.

They also started Build My brandiD, a one-stop-shop with DIY entrepreneurial resources. They offer resources that are perfect for side hustlers just getting started and setting up a solid brand. Something they know a thing or four about. They offer ‘starter kits’ that include these WordPress themes and copywriting templates that match the themes!

We want to highlight two of these themes…


The Coaching Pro Theme

Coaching Pro is a great option if you are building a business built around you (or a single person). This theme is perfect for a life coach, business coach, public speaker, author or consultant.

Coaching Pro has a great homepage for delivering a top-notch personal first impression. Then, on top of that it’s packed with great features for selling products like an eBook. Or giving lead magnets away to develop leads!


Hello! Commerce Theme

Hello! Commerce is a great option for specialty shops, agencies, or solo entrepreneurs. The homepage has a bold hero/top banner area, sections for featuring products or services, and a grid for your portfolio or list of clients/brands served with logos.

Hello! Commerce includes a clean and stylish EDD product grid, sleek product pages, and distraction-free checkout page.


How to Use a brandiD Child Theme

These themes are child themes of Genesis. Here’s how it works:

  1. First, download the Genesis theme framework. It’s free. However, you have to provide an email address.
  2. Second, purchase Coaching Pro or Hello! Commerce child theme.
  3. Third, after you install and activate you can run the one-click setup wizard

Here’s what it looks like to get up and running on your WordPress site. In the example below we are using the ‘Hello! Commerce’ theme.

First you install the Genesis theme framework. On your WordPress admin go to Appearance > Themes > Add New. Click Browse/Choose and upload the ZIP file you got on the Genesis website. Click  Install Now. Then click Activate.

Once installed you’ll see a message at the top of your WordPress admin telling you to activate a child theme.

Hello! Commerce is the child theme. Repeat the steps above to upload, install, and activate the Hello! Commerce theme.

One-click Setup Wizard

The wizard will install recommended plugins, sample content, and demo pages.

You now have everything you need!

  • The Hello! Commerce theme
  • Easy Digital Downloads plugin
  • Simple Social Icons plugin
  • Social Proof (Testimonials) Slider plugin
  • WPForms

Note: You can deactivate and delete the WooCommerce plugin unless you plan to sell physical products like t-shirts, clothing, or other merchandise.

That’s it. You’ll have both a beautiful theme and sample pages ready to go. You can use these sample pages to help you structure your content. Just swap your text and photos in!

Here’s what the home page looks like on the back-end. You can customize the homepage easily to suit your needs.
