The Simply Pro theme is a 3rd party Genesis Framework Theme created for feminine bloggers. The beautiful homepage displaying a sticky menu bar, the option of a responsive slider, a side column, plus a footer widget. This is an easily customizable, minimal theme with great features. You could use this theme for any niche.
The featured image on the homepage is large, so make sure you are using high-quality, professional images. Check out the floating social media buttons in the side column. I really like how this theme is not done over the top with fancy features. It’s an elegant theme with much room to be customized. Put your own final touches on this theme so it’s unique in a way. Find some customization tips in our Genesis Tutorials category.
