The Hello Pro theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for copywriters or bloggers who provide some type of service online. The homepage resembles a business theme because of all the widgets it has. On the homepage, there is a sticky menu bar, followed by a huge rectangle widget that is the welcome widget. This should be used for introducing yourself, your business or what you can do for potential clients. Under this widget are a lot of well-placed homepage widgets used to showcase any services that you offer.
This theme was carefully created to be a fantastic branding theme with room to customize it how you see fit. Check out our Genesis Framework Tutorials section for some free tips. Under the rectangular welcome widget is an autoresponder widget perfectly placed to get that visitor to sign up to your newsletter. Aweber is our recommended email responder service.
There are even more homepage widgets that can be used for just about anything. You have the power to create the ultimate sales/pitch page with this theme. Footer widgets are included and of course, a sidebar. Do visit the demo version because there is a lot going on with this theme.

Here is a look at the blog page. I would suggest to Add A Widget Under The Navigation Bar to put up a Google AdSense ad or advertise a product/service. It’s just a little too bland looking of a blog page.
One of the homepage widget sections has a portfolio page option, which is great for showing off who you provide excellent services to. Here is a peak at what the demo is showing.
