Underrated Divi Modules

Did you know Divi has 37 built in modules that allow you to create a super customized website? Don’t limit yourself to using just the standard text module, image module, or button module. Some of Divi’s built in modules can help you easily create an interactive website that stands out from your competitor’s. Others can accomplish something you’re trying to make with the text, image, and button modules in a fraction of the time.

I’m going to share with you my 4 favorite underrated Divi modules that can take your website from average to awesome.

The Accordian Module

The accordian module is perfect for when you want to provide more information to your visitors but you don’t want the web page to just be a bunch of text. Frequently asked questions is the perfect example of when to use the accordian module.

If you scroll down a bit to see the accordian module in action, you’ll see 6 boxes. The first one is open but the other 5 are collapsed which reduces the amount of text a visitor sees at first glance. Instead, the actual frequently asked questions can be seen. This makes it much easier for your site visitors to scan the questions. If they’re scanning through the questions and find one they’re interested in, they can click the plus (+) button to see the answer.

How customized can it get?

The accoridan module is super customizable! Here are just a few things you can customize:

  • Header text color
  • Header background color
  • Body text color
  • Body background color
  • Universal text and background color OR individual text and background colors by question
  • Icon color and background color
  • Open text and background color can be different than the closed text and background color
  • You can add a border (like I have in green) or you can leave it clean

These are just a handful of ways you can customize the accoridan module. Really, the possibilities are endless but it’s so easy because it’s all one Divi module!

The accordian module in action


You’ll fill out several questionnaires so I can get a deep understanding of your business, program pricing, marketing strategy, your personality, existing struggles, + more. You will go through my signature process to write website content that converts. Then, using your information (and working together closely), I’ll infuse sales, consumer, and color psychology to design a website that is customized to your business and attracts high end clients. You’ll have a chance to provide 2 rounds of edits before your custom designs are turned into a physical website. After launch, you’ll get access to a video vault full of tutorials to help you understand your new website. You’ll have access to me for 30 days after launch!
Typically, from start to finish it takes 6-8 weeks. If you’re on top of your game, ready to provide all your content, respond to messages, review the mocks and provide feedback your website could be launched in as little as 4 weeks. If life happens (which sometimes it does) and you’re unable to quickly respond to messages, your website could take over 8 weeks to launch. You’re basically in control so take advantage of this!
Absolutely! I help new business owners as well as established business owners. If you don’t have a website yet, no worries! We’ll make sure you start your new business on the right foot so you can attract those higher-level clients right from the start.
If you’re at the very beginning stages of creating your website, I can help you choose the best domain and hosting providers as well as get everything connected. No need to stress about this on your end!
If you’re interested in just the web design package, yes, you’ll need all of this ready before we begin the project. If you want to make sure your branding is psychologically attracting the right clients from the start I recommend including the branding package, but we can discuss the best option for you on our call if you aren’t sure what to do!
Because my service includes designing customized websites, branding PLUS optimizing your marketing strategy & website copy, I only book 2 web design projects per month on a first come, first serve basis. Since spots are limited, schedule a call with me to secure your start date.

The Blurb Module

My next underrated Divi module is the blurb module. It’s normal for service based websites to have images stacked on top of a header stacked on top of body paragraph text. But you know how long it takes you to create this and perfect the look on mobile, too? Too long!

The blurb module is perfect for testimonials, a list of steps, or basically anything that has an image, header, and text explanation. Plus, the look is consistent on mobile. No more worrying that you didn’t place columns, rows, and modules correctly to get the image, header text, and body paragraph text stacked. You won’t go to your mobile site and see image, image, image, header, body paragraph, header, body paragraph any longer.

Just use the blurb module!

  • Header formatting and text color can be changed
  • Body paragraph formatting and text color can be changed
  • You can use an image OR one of Divi’s built in icons
