Why would you want to recreate a Divi Layout every time for the same repeated design elements. To be 100% upfront about this all sites need the same elements on them. Just like every supermarket has a cashier and at least one display counter so do all websites need contact forms, call to actions, navigation, headers, footer and blogs just to list a few of the many repeated web design elements. When using Divi Layouts that have been premade you save the time of having to recreate the same elements every time.
Have you spent hours working on a design? Fine tuning it till you know it converts? Why reinvent the wheel. You know your design works. Your clients love it. Their clients love it. They have converting design elements. Do you really want to have to fiddle with the Divi Builder settings every time you recreate the same element. You shouldn’t! And the Divi team know this after years of feedback from the massive Divi community.that’s why they created the Divi library and gave us the ability to save the Dive Layouts to be reused.

When you need to build yet another footer you can import the footer Divi layout into the dashboard. Open the settings and adjust the design to match the new client’s look and feel. It takes a few simple clicks and the content details are updated. This would include such info items as phone numbers and addresses.

Be Nice And Share
Sharing is caring. You went to web design school and are still friends with your fellow students? Or you work in a big development company and have lots of colleagues. Then this is perfect for you. When your friend or colleague mentions that they love a design element and tells you that they have a project where this would fit in perfectly then share.
