There’s also another great video on building a website from scratch from Josh Jackson of Just like Renae’s video above, Josh also uses the Customizr theme, a very customizable and attractive theme.

Both Renae and Josh walk you through — step-by-step — the process on how to create a Website (or WordPress blog) from the beginning.

Renae’s video is three hours while Josh builds the site in two hours. Different styles for both presenters, but good content. In fact, I learned several things from both videos.

Photo Ninja – Another Reason You Need Profit Builder

Today, Tuesday, Sept. 23 is the first day of fall.

The beautiful picture above shows a nice sunset with an almost barren tree, which we’ll soon see as the leaves begin to fall — and we have to rake the yard constantly!

But I’m not here to talk about the leaves… but rather pictures. Just like the one above.

It was truly easy to add this great picture, and it’s royalty-free and free for me to use on my website without any type of attribution.

How is that possible? The Photo Ninja plugin combined with the power of Pixabay.

Photo Ninja Plugin

The Photo Ninja plugin makes it super simple to add great pictures (and vectors and illustrations) within your WordPress post or page using the Profit Builder plugin. Photo Ninja is an extension of Profit Builder that uses API to access Pixabay’s 250,000-plus free photos, vectors and art illustrations.

And it does this right in your WordPress back-end so you don’t have to leave your admin area. 

Just inset a new content box in Profit Builder and click on the advanced tab to bring up the extensions, then click on Photo Ninja and insert image. That will bring up a search box (as seen below) where you can look for the type of file you want as well as the type/composition of the image itself.

Photos and images are such a huge part of websites nowadays, especially blogs, that you need to make sure you have images in your posts all the time.The Photo Ninja plugin just helps make that process of finding and using royalty free images, vectors and art illustrations easier, saving time in getting your content published.

And after all, aren’t we all in favor of saving time!
