YouTube is one of the best ways to learn about anything and, fortunately for all us Divi users, that includes Divi. There are lots of excellent Divi tutorials on YouTube in all skill levels. There are even several channels devoted to designing websites with Divi. In this article we’ll look at 6 Divi design YouTube channels you should follow.
Some of these channels include tutorials for WordPress in general and other WordPress products, such as WooCommerce, while others completely dedicated to Divi. Most include design tips, how-to’s, reviews, and even some Divi news.
A quick word about the channels – I’m only including those in English, but there are several channels in other languages, so it’s worth searching if English isn’t your only language. Also, I’m choosing channels that post often and have recent videos. There are several that have lots of videos but haven’t posted in a year. As you know a lot has changed with Divi in the past year, so the information in those channels might be different from the current edition of Divi.
