In this episode of Divi Nation, the official Divi podcast, we sit down with Geno Quiroz. Geno is a Divi specialist who runs his own web agency, does white label Divi work for other agencies, and consults on a wide variety of Divi related web projects. We talk about what exactly a Divi Consultant is and how to succeed as one.
Divi Nation Episode 06: Building a Divi Consultancy with Geno Quiroz
I think it will be easy to see why Geno has been highly successful in building relationships within the Divi Community as well as capitalizing on those connections to expand his business. But just in case you’d like me to spell it out: he’s a really nice guy who knows exactly what he’s talking about. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did!

Building a Divi Consultancy with Geno Quiroz
In addition to diving into the nitty gritty details of what exactly it takes to succeed as a Divi Consultant Geno and I also talk about how he got his start in WordPress, when he began using Divi, why he’s stuck with it, and a few other interesting topics.
In this Divi Quick Tip I show you how to add anchor links to Divi Pages using the CSS-ID field at the bottom of every Divi Module.
Yay! New gear! This week I was able to use two new pieces of gear. Well, with accessories it’s a bit more than that but for simplicity’s sake I’ll say it’s just two. The first being a new web cam and the second being a new mic.
I also spent a decent amount of time inside Adobe Audition this time around trying to find what will eventually become the sound of Divi Nation. As a result I think the audio quality of this episode is better than any previous episode, even though there’s still more work to be done in that department.
I’ve updated our gear list below to reflect these changes:
- Scrivener for the scripts.
- Skype for the interviews.
- Ecamm Call Recorder for the interview recordings.
- Quick Time for recording myself outside of Skype.
- Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920 for call recording and webcam segments.
- Screenium for screencasting.
- Rode Procastor mic for my audio.
- Adobe Audition for audio editing.
- Adobe After Effects CC 2015 for the motion graphics.
- Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 for video editing.
- Blubrry PowerPress for podcasting from WordPress.
In the coming weeks there will be even more new gear being put to use. I was really happy with the improved audio and video quality the relatively small upgrades in this episode yielded us. My goal in the coming episodes (starting with episode 08; since most of episode 07 is already complete) is to mix in a wider variety of visuals.
Obviously there are a lot of ways I could go about that but my first visual change will be getting up from behind my desk and shooting various segments in different ways. After I establish a variety of lighting, camera set-ups, angles, etc. I will work on adding more graphics to the edit to liven up some of the longer segments.
As always, if you have any thoughts or questions concerning the production process of Divi Nation feel free to chat me up in the comments section. I’m always game to talk shop!
