The Hello Pro theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for copywritters or bloggers who provide some type of service online. This is basically a business theme with how the homepage is set up with all its widgets. A great theme for focusing on branding. Hello Pro is an amazing theme with lot’s of good design details. On the homepage, there is a sticky menu bar, under this menu bar is a huge rectangle widget that is the welcome widget which should be used for introducing yourself, your business or what you can do for potential clients who are interested in what you have to offer.
