Jade and good evening welcome welcome you should be in bed right no no it's not that late over there not that late over there good to see people from the domain in Republic Eric and then we have John from Las Vegas and huge apologies for skipping out on the other hundred people that I haven't mentioned here but we'll find you in the chat room let's get on with the show and tonight we are looking at Brizzy essentials before we do that yes the 600 mark barrier has been breached and we official at 599 I wonder if that's true Dimmie just made that up and psychologically wanted to know we've entered the 500 but we are at 599 last lifetime licenses for Brizzy Pro WordPress going 299 u.s. dollars and as I've mentioned before this deal when it gets to zero it doesn't mean it will not be there they will still be lifetime licenses but the price will go up and if you have seen products that have done this and once that are currently out there that do this you know that the price sometimes go up over the years it's at 500 600 as you add on more features so if you are a wordpress user and I want to say specifically with brace user then you know the future may just hold it in for you Pro deal is a good deal to go tonight we're going to prepare WordPress and get ready install Brizzy and begin building your pages create your first page in WordPress using Brizzy but unfortunately we're not going to get to the last point because we're trying to keep it within an hour so I ran out of time what we are going to show you though is the Brizzy builder so for you guys and I've seen a lot of you there you are already quite familiar with Brizzy and I'm pretty sure you're going to learn nothing new tonight because we're going to be looking at the basic stuff here for people who are new to website making and right so we are at 60 minutes already the showcase I'm going to show you is pre-recorded and this is purely for people that have no idea how Brizzy work I'm going to show you how to install in WordPress and I'm also going to show you how to install it in Brizzy cloud not install it but how to sign up for Brazil out unfortunately I'm not technical support so I cannot help you with any technical questions tonight but we can have a nice discussion in the chatroom those questions that I can't get back to you I'm going to sit down I'll get back to the team for you and we'll see what we can answer feature requests in the future I can tell you now I don't have the magical crystal ball as much as I would like to have it any person who has that magical crystal ball will make gazillions no one has it yet at this moment and that brings us quickly to me well I just want to say for me the only big thing I can tell you at this moment is that tomorrow South Africa goes into what we now call level four lockdown which means tomorrow morning at six o'clock I am allowed to go and do exercise outside my house in the radius of five kilometres which means I'm going to take my dogs for a walk for the first time in over five weeks I'm really really looking forward to that so we're going to start with the Brizzy essentials workshop this is a pre-recorded video that allows us to get hands on with you in the chat room so one that's one reason second reason is I'm located in South Africa we call it the drama doulas which means in the middle of nowhere and my internet here is really horrendous that is why I unfortunately cannot do a live webinar for you I've tried it once before and the quality is just too bad but within two three months I'm moving a house and then I'm going to have amazing optic fiber fiber optic internet and then we'll be able to do these things live hands-on so start the video this is essentials focusing on the Brizzy builder how to set it up in WordPress and also how to get started with Brizzy cloud right let's begin our journey into finding out more about the Brizzy builder and the first place you have to go is – Brizzy dot IO on this is our official web site where you need to go if you want to learn more about Brizzy in terms of what Brizzy can do and where you actually can find the various information about Brizzy so go to Brazil io and the first thing I want to point out to you are these two buttons here in the middle one says Brizzy for WordPress and the other one says Brizzy for cloud if you've been around Brizzy for some time you all have a very good idea of what is going on here if you are new this will be like what the hey what do I do now well you've got an option here we've got two platforms and between these two platforms we happen very very faintly up there with the logo you will see Brizzy builder now everything you see here happening in this jiff is the Brizzy builder how you can build out a website how you can make your pages bring in these pre-designed blocks that is all done with the Brizzy builder and the Brizzy builder is the same between these two platforms one platform is called WordPress and the other platform is called Brizzy clout or just cloud up to you if you know what is WordPress if you've worked with WordPress before and you have certain plugins and apps that you prefer for WordPress this is the one to go for on the other hand I would suggest if you have never worked with a website you've never built anything you have no idea where to start then I recommend you go with this one and why why go with Brizzy count if you know nothing because there is an absolute free version of Brizzy cloud and it's not a crippled version with this free version of Brizzy cloud you can create an entire website and we will not do that but on the youtube channel you can go check out we've got videos there on how to do that and it's absolutely free and the reason why I recommend you do this is you don't waste money if you are not sure where the website making is for you or not go for Brizzy card otherwise Brizzy WordPress so let's talk quickly about this one sitting it up quickly and then how to set up Brizzy cloud and then we go into the bridge builder for you to see how you build on a page when you work with WordPress you need to make three decisions before you get even to the bridge builder decision number one is a host and you can choose your own host but we also have a few partners you're at Brizzy that we partner with and if you go up here on the website under partners you will see we call them associates this is a very popular international word my associate write hosting this is where you start this is number this is the first thing that you have to choose and we have four partners that we host with and they give you some extra bling if you sign up with them so here we have SiteGround and what you get if you get a deal with side grant is that you get 1-year Brizzy Pro for free hmm nice right so if you if you don't have a host and you want to do it make make use of one of these deals side round is one cloud ways is the other one in motion and then Bluehost and these are just four of the plethora of hosting that is out there this is your personal decision these are just a few guys that we partner with but who you choose in the end is very important what makes these guys and many others so popular is that when you sign up with them they will install WordPress for you with a one-click installation so you don't have to go through that process of downloading WordPress and installing it yourself so that's a very important one to understand that is the first thing that you will have to do is you have to get hosting otherwise no one will be able to access your WordPress site then secondly you won't have a WordPress site you need a host you need a place where this thing is kept a server you also have the option of a local server but we're not going to go into that the next thing that's not included here or not mentioned here it's included here not mentioned here is a website address I like to use the word website address but when you start working with page building and website making you will hear people use domain or URL more often that is the website address this Brizzy not IO you will need an address and for this you will actually have to go into directory get one and this will also cost you some money website addresses aren't for free it's like a post box at a post office they are not for free you have to pay some rent to have that post box it's the same to have your URL or your website address now many of these guys if I click here on get the deal for cloud ways I'm pretty sure they're going to have a deal and I say that under correction but the packages that they will have will sometimes include that you can choose a URL a website address within that package so year they have a free trial and pricing I don't want to divert here but it seems I do that so let's see over here uh okay so let's start you with this one unlimited team on staging on a regular I don't see it now let me quickly see free SSL okay I don't have time to go through that but you can rest assure that most of these hosts will be able to give you a domain name a website address and you can get it from that okay so that was one you need a host to you need a domain and then you are ready and then of course you need that WordPress installation I'll go you're into Bluehost and you'll see here we have blue eyes also at the bottom I do a lot of projects for clients with Bluehost snot a preferred website it's just one of the hosts that are used because this is a very cheap package that I've got here that allows me to create unlimited subdomains and the unlimited subdomains allow me to create all these extra pages that I can work with for tutorials like this and this is what I have here and you can see that I have a dashboard here from where I can manage the websites and then also what I have here is that I can access them and that you have to one-click WordPress installation so if I go look for Brizzy over here is Brizzy free and then I'm going to log into WordPress and this is a site that I've set up for Brizzy free it's a complete new site which means that I got my WordPress I got my URL my website address and then the other thing that I got is that I had to one-click WordPress installation so what I expect to see when I go in here is a fresh clean install of WordPress and this is what we've got here so you always know it's a new installation of WordPress when you click here on this little one pages where you create your web pages you will see there are these two default pages that come in privacy policy and sample page you don't need to use them right these are just two default pages that WordPress gives you knowingly so what we need to do here is that we want to create our website within WordPress currently our website looks like this and we have lots of videos on how to work within WordPress so if what I'm showing you here is a little bit foreign then just go and check that out we have to install Brizzy so you go to the plugins folder here and we go look for Brizzy click here on add new in the WordPress repository and this is a huge library of all the apps plugins that you can get and over here you just type in the search bar Brizzy and it will search a little bit search a little bit and give you everything Brizzy related even here you will see the starter templates from Astra brainstorm force that includes Brizzy templates but we are interested in out good frame Brizzy page builder over here you need to install it and within the WordPress anything that you install works in two phases first is installation and then the second one is activate if I don't click on this one here I have installed it but it's not active I cannot use it though you here to plugins and click on plugins and you will see that Brizzy is here under my plugins but it is not active so I cannot use it yet I will click here on activate now and after I've clicked on it note this year in the side bar on the left that Brizzy the label will appear here let's click on it activate and once it's activated there we have Brizzy now and we have this little pop-up here come on give us some love I already did and that is just a review system and now we have Brizzy here installed and we can begin creating pages in Brizzy and to do that you have to create a page a web page let's go into pages if I click on all pages you remember I have shown you those two and now we create extra page and we wait let's call it our home page this will be the page that people will access when they come to my site and this is our home page I'm going so quickly through this and though it's an essentials video I feel extremely guilty because essentials will take much much longer than this but maybe this will give you a very good idea of what Brizzy is all about both for the WordPress and cloud versions and then if you are interested in knowing more just hop on over to the YouTube web weather youtube site or YouTube brother and check out the channel there okay so I've created the page in WordPress and I can click on publish I mentioned earlier that when you work with WordPress there are essentially three decisions that you have to make number one is your host number two is your domain your website address and number three is a very peculiar WordPress component and that is called a theme and a theme is well as a link to WordPress as your arm is linked to your body you know so what you need to do with this situation is you have to go here to appearance in the sidebar and click on themes and you will see here there is one theme that we are using called 2020 now the theme the theme controls how your site looks and how it behaves its similarity if you have a cell phone running on Android and you can choose different themes for how it will look for example I have a sony xperia cell phone and I can install different themes from Sony and it will change the color and the look and the the fonts and even how the icons display on my phone this is what a theme does it's something like I said very unique in many sense in such a sense to WordPress that you do not find on other online builders but with WordPress theme is important even if you use a plugin that doesn't require a theme WordPress requires a theme and by default you will always get this one now at this moment called 2020 but you know what hey I don't like this theme we don't like this theme you have the option to install themes that work much better than this one and gives you better control and more options again if you go to our website at Brazil Rio and at the top where we have partners you will see there is an option themes and plugins and this is way again you will see a number of recommendations of themes that we use right so you can have a look here through these guys and there are many others as well that aren't listed here just like hosting themes very much personal choice I have my preferred themes so I'm not going to recommend them but I just say as time goes on you have to test them a little bit and some you like I clicked on add new thing to look for a new theme I'm going to use page builder framework for this exercise page build a framework very clean theme that allows for very fast speeds my internet is a little bit slow so as it loads same procedure that we went through within the plugins you click on install and it goes through this process and after it has installed you click on activate and now let's go back to our pages I have created that page which I have called home page and if I click now on it we will see that it has a little bit of a different look than it did previously when it used the 2020 theme again there's so much you can do on this page here which I'm not going to show you because this is all wordpress related and the great thing about Brizzy is that if you use the Brizzy builder to build out this page you don't have to go into most of these settings here on the right which can be very overwhelming and scary for newcomers this video and this webinar is to show you more about the Brizzy builder and we haven't touched it yet to do that we have to go to this little pink button up there what I'm going to do is I'm going to click on that but before I then continue I will go and show you how to set up Brizzy cloud edit with Brizzy click on the pink button and now you will enter the Brizzy builder and what do you want to do with the Brizzy builder well you want to build out web pages you want to make pages like this and you can do all of that in the bridge builder and in fact what you see here has been done in the Brizzy builder everything on the Brizzy side president io has been done in the bridge builder let's just go back here and this is how it looks so I've gotten a host I got my website address I had my one click WordPress installation I got into WordPress I installed the Brizzy plugin I chose a new theme I created a page and Here I am in this page and now I want to start building it so that it can look good and that I can put it on the Internet so pause and let's step out of this for a moment let's go back here to Brizzy and I'll just go – Brizzy dot IO again and we go back to these two buttons so I've shown you how to get everything ready to work with the Brizzy builder in WordPress now let's look at what you have to do to get things ready for working with Brizzy in Brizzy cloud so the process is different between the two but the end result getting here when you get here is the same more or less let's go into Brizzy cloud and as i click on it you will see it opens a new page and this page up here let me just take this Gosling number away is Brizzy clout so it's got its own website address and from here looks a little bit similar to the page that we have for Prezi WordPress and most of the time it's going to be because it basically does the same what is going to be different is that those three choices that I had spoken to you about earlier host URL and the theme that you are going to use is going to be different I think the first thing you have to understand here I never used the word WordPress in Brizzy club there is absolutely nothing about WordPress and if you've worked with WordPress before or any plugins from WordPress get it out of your head it's got nothing to do with Brizzy cloud you cannot do any of the plugins that you can do in WordPress in Brizzy cloud so if you have worked with wordpress before you have had plugins that you used in that one they are absolutely of no use for you in Brizzy count Brizzy cloud is a complete different system you can compare it to Windows and Mac many apps that you get on Mac for video editing you get Final Cut Pro it only works on a Mac and that's more or less what's going on here what you're going to see in Brizzy card only works in Brizzy cloud but the end result getting here is the same so we back in Brizzy cloud and now how do you go through that process of setting up your site in Brizzy cloud the first thing you need is an account so you go up here to account log in and you click on this one and this is already going to log me into my account because I'm logged in my default what I want you to do is I'm going to sign out here and then if you click on account log in you're going to be greeted with this screen and this is the Brizzy cloud dashboard project area everything happens here the same screen that you had seen in the WordPress let me take us out of here I'll quickly show you that just so you can have an idea of how these two compare this is WordPress as you enter WordPress everything you do to build out your site is done from here and Brizzy glad it looks like this much cleaner much more friendlier that's the whole idea behind Brizzy cloud is to be intuitive and to be friendly and make it easy and of course what I'm showing you at this moment everything is 4:3 if you go up here to the profile and you click on it the first time you will see that it says guest sign out currently you're a guest you can create a page here but that page is basically useless it's more like a practice for you and it can get lost you need to sign up and that is for a free account so you simply click on sign up and then make sure sign up is selected up here into your details and book you're good to go that is how easy the sign-up is I'm going to just log in and it's going to do exactly the same which one is it now I know I changed it you know this is how passwords go let me make sure I got the right one try again there we go okay there we go update update quickly good so this is what my dashboard now currently looks like because I have a lot of projects that I've worked with here previously you had seen there was only this one and it was over here and there was nothing else each of these that you see here each of them is a website Wow right so whereas in WordPress this is your website and this is your dashboard in Brizzy cloud you have the dashboard but you can create multiple websites in here in fact the key word here is unlimited yes unlimited websites so far you have not signed up for hosting because hosting is included within Brazil ah yup it is included even for free URL now here comes an interesting one you are given a free website address in Brizzy cloud but it's mom it's not the one you would like maybe it's the one that's a little bit icky and you don't like it but you can change it or you can bring in your own paid custom one but if you are happy with the generated one given to you then you don't have to go through step number two and step number three there are no themes here so those three choices are kind of done for you in breast account and that also streamlines everything for you right let's just go back to WordPress and I know I'm jumping between the two but it gives you an idea of the complexity between the two and also the changes and differences between the two if I go back to my pages and remember this WordPress is my entire site it's an entire site and you create your pages like your home page here on the pages I click on my home page it takes me into this page and then from here I click on continue to edit with Brizzy and that takes me into the Brizzy builder to get here in Brizzy cloud let me just drag this tab here all the way to the right I need to create a new project on your website and to do that you go here where it says screen create new project and you know that's the great thing about Brizzy is that the whole idea behind Brizzy is for it to be in your face intuitive it's like oh I want to create the new project and then as you think about it you see it there same like the Builder I want to create and build a page start building your page it's very much prominent and it's very much clear as to what you should do next so to get to the Builder and start building your page and Brizzy card let's create a new project and I click here on create new project it's going to give me two options and we're only interested in the website this is what we're trying to do now so just blind those guys aren't over there and focus on the website and we click on create Brizzy cloud is going to create a new website for us and where is that one now it's over here it's the last one project number Tim and we'll call this essential Prezi builder so that we don't get lost and that's it now we've given it the name now if I want to go and work in this project in this website I click here on edit project and that will take me into the Brizzy builder and you will see now huh I'm going to jump between these two do you see any major changes happening between these two in fact there is only one change visually and that's this little button that you see here at the bottom this is Brizzy WordPress and this is Brizzy cloud and as I switch between the two you will see the changes here okay for all intents and purposes it's a huge phrase I like to use it makes me sound very smart for all intents and purposes there are very few differences between these two and both of these builders are called the Brizzy builder they act the same they have the same features and they purpose is to bring you to a point where you can build a website like this and because they are the same I am going to close out the Brizzy WordPress one I'm just going to show you how the Builder works in Brizzy cloud but remember they are the same close this one and let's follow the queues queue number one says start building your page in fact let me also close this one queue number one start building your page and this is where you should start let's just click on this and see what happens this opens the block manager or the block library and the word block is a very essential cornerstone word in the Brizzy world you will see up here it says blocks and as you scroll through them you begin quickly to understand what's going on here ah pre-made designs right once that I can use without having to think by myself or having to create the first thing I want to tell you as a newcomer that's what we do don't come in and try and redesign the entire world be happy with these blocks because they are ready-made they are made for you and these are modern blocks which copies the trends and follows the trends currently online for website making and and there's so many of them what is important that if you scroll like I'm scrolling now it's going to be very overwhelming and when it comes to website making it's actually divided into components you get different parts on a page and those components are over here under categories so you can see they are divvied up into these different categories hero is usually the top block on your page and you have features contact and you can filter through them so if I click here on hero you see these images features will be more like lists featuring you know your oh the service contact will be contact forms through which people can contact you and you go through all these various categories to select the one that you want to use the other one very important is that you have an option very common awesome website designed between a lite version which is this one and a dark version these guys have been designed to complement the light they are frenemies so light and dark and then you have another option up here you will see there's a drop-down it says currently kit number two and this is not the car from Knight Rider but you have kid number one and over here let's just choose cover these load the legacy blocks that were released when Brizzy first came onto the market but almost two years ago right yeah Wow almost two years anniversary or is it I think may right it was May 2018 I have to check up with D me on that so you can choose a mix-and-match between these various blocks kid one orchid two light or dark and then you have all these various categories that you can choose from not to bring in a block on your side is as simple just scrolling and then choosing the block and then clicking and it will drop in I realize currently that I am in Brizzy cloud Pro and when it comes to the Builder there's no big difference except that some of these blocks in Brazil out free will be locked they aren't accessible in Brazil are free but there's still a plethora that are and I think this one is available in free so if I click on this one that's what's going to happen it's going to bring in this block so you've brought in a block here and there's a title here and there's a subtitle there and there's a button here and there's some social icons over here so the idea is you build out the site first let's let's bring in another block under this so you can see how the blocks work so you have that gyro and under that maybe you want to introduce your product and that will be features so let's click your own features and let's see what we've got here features features this is a big featureless why choose us very nice I have some convincing reason why people should go with your product we don't know what your product is yet but yeah the option is over here and then down here we want people to click on a button and subscribe maybe and that is called a call to action CTA so here let's choose CTA and you will see all of them feature buttons and the button is a queue that this is a call to action with people clicking on that button it will take them somewhere else or maybe subscribe them but to give a little bit variety to our site we're going to switch that out with a dark one so let's click here on dark and then we click here ok and then you see now we have our hero header up here then we have our features and a call to action click here let's introduce our team mix so add a new block let's look for team we put it back on light and let's choose a big team over here who's posing very nicely for us and then under this let's bring in a testimonial people who say some smart things about our site testimony would put in on dark again for variety let's choose this one no let's choose this one alrighty you can see our site is being build on and then let's end it off with a contact form where they can contact us go to contact choose light and let's choose this contact form up here keep it simple and I would advise if this is your first foray into the world of website making follow the rule of keeping it simple start with these blocks build them out get confident with them when you've broaden your blocks and you're happy with them it's important that you save your page that is done here in the bottom right hand corner very very important feature just click on that and you will say publish or save and then after this it will keep saying update that's all you need to do you just click here on update you can also view this page how it will appear to a visitor who comes to your site and that you do over here on the preview button click on that and it will open your page on the front end and this is the same for Brizzy WordPress and Brizzy class and this is how your page will look so we've brought in these blocks but of course what is very very very important here is that you cannot use this content you have to go and change the content and this is one of the parts where Brizzy is just blocks ahead let's close this front int and we go into the backend anywhere you see text that you want to change to interact with that text you simply click on it so let's look here at the best solutions I want to change this to let's say product that I want to sell them some new led energy-efficient light click on this and when you click on it you will see all these options open here and a lot of them shouldn't be strange to you you should recognize them from word processors like Word or Excel or any other document editor that you've used that a lot of these features look very similar at this moment we just want to change the tick's so to do that click and drag with your cursor over the text and you can type in there LED energy a efficient light and that's how you will do that and to give it a little subheading let's click here just to deselect that then we go to this one click again on it's selecting latest innovative technology on the market right so you see that's how you go ahead and you change the text over here is a button and it says how can we help you can also change the button tix again you click in there and you can click and drag but I want to show you another option as well I triple click so you click one two three and by doing that you select everything and then here we can say check out the check out the brochure and this is what you will do going through the entire site and changing the text for each of these areas where you have the text very important you're not going to use this tix but maybe it says something like your why choose us and you're very happy with that then you can leave that on why choose us I just have a cat here that I have to move okay cat is gone why choose us so there we go and then under that you again go ahead and you change the tick so just again you click on the ticks that will bring up the toolbar and then what you will do is you select it with your cursor or you can triple click or you use the shortcut key on your keyboard on Windows it is ctrl a and on a Mac that is command a a for all and that's how you select it and that's just where you start with that but let's quickly build one block from the beginning by ourselves to understand how you can actually build up something by yourself to do that you can scroll here down to the bottom and you say add a new block good and then instead of choosing one of these pre-made blocks we're going to choose this one here add a blank block right if you go down here to the bottom you will see there is a little icon that appears here and that is your block icon click on that and you have a lot of options here you can change the background like the color let's click on this one and let's change the color of this background to this pink rose color over here you can even give it a gradient if you want to be a little bit different let's put it on a gradient like this let's just drag that in a little bit make the gradient nice and then over here I'll put it on 45 degrees let's see how that looks or my favorite is 135 I'm not sure if it works the same like it doesn't Photoshop and now you can see we have this gradient here in the background all right you see this + here in the middle this is where we bring in that text all the content in a page builder is called elements they are little blocks small little blocks of content and they have specific features when I click here you will see that this drawer here on the Left opens with all these icons or elements rather in here because this is Brizzy Pro you see a lot if this is Brizzy free they will be fewer ones but all the essential ones will be there for example the most essential one is our text element and you can see it up here that's why it also appears as the first element within this list now what I want to do is get this element onto the page over here and to do that you click on the element hold your clicking or your button in and then you just drag it and you see that blue little dot shows you you've got an element captured in there drag it and you take it to this area where you want to place it and you drop it then um you see not that difficult right okay good so far so good now I showed you just a few minutes ago how to change the tick so let's do that first I'm going to triple click to select everything and say my own block typing that into all caps and from here let's do the styling that you are used to the first one I will do is align it so here with the align button currently it's aligned to the left I want to have it in the center so I click on it it's Center if I click on it again it's on the right and if I click on it again its justified you see now those four lines are equal lengths and if I click on it the fourth time it's again just or aligned to the left but I want it in the middle so click here then let's change the color I think that's a little bit too soft so click here on the colors then over here I will choose from these preset colors this one year second from the left but let's change the typography and make that also bigger now typography is the word we use for the font and we all know the word font if you've used word before you know the word font go to your other tee for typography and then here you have all the fonts that you can choose from let's choose this one comforta and then here you have the settings white is the thickness of the lines let's put it on bold and then let's increase the size I just click here on the up arrow and I can increase or decrease the letter spacing you see I can put more space between the letters give it like a movie Buster or look but I can also decrease in make it a little bit more impact so you see they're good and this way you every time you want in to bring in a new element let's say I want to bring in a subtitle below here it's another text element so I go here to add elements I grab the text and I drag it and now you see as I come in here I see these thick grey lines appear within this block the thick grey lines they show me where our opportunities for me to bring in this text element I can drop it here or I can drop it there in this case I want to put it at the bottom and after I've done that I realized hmm actually I wanted to put it at the top and to do that let's click outside hover over this element click and hold with your mouse and then drag it up and you see I can drag these guys around let's do it with this one click and hold and drag and that's how you can change the order of elements on your site I'm going to triple click a new beginning whatever that means and then center line it go to typography and let's put it again on comforta to keep it uniform right now you see that's how we build up its a heading title upper title and then you have this one over here which is our most important hitting let's say I want to bring in a button button let's bring in a button so we go up here to the live and elements there's the button click and drag that and we drop the button here and then we double click for that one and we say he contact us contact us and what if I want to add some space here between these two there's element from that called displace higher I spring in this spacer I drag it there and waste the spacer there it is click on it and now you will see that little dot appear there and I drag that out to bring in more space what's important to understand here is that we have videos on all of these so you want to know how to use these various elements hop on over to YouTube some of them are a little bit outdated because we've released a lot of updates in the last few months and I'm guilty I'm struggling to keep up with all the new releases we've just had a massive big release in the last month or so from WordPress and then Brizzy clan and it's quite a job to keep up with all the new features as they roll out which is a good thing it's a really good thing but one of the great things about brizzy's that I want this block actually do be here all the way at the top and how do I do that and for a lot of things you have options here on the left this thing where you have the settings we call it a sidebar and we've got these settings up here for the add elements right and you saw how I brought in those elements and there are many you can go through them icons images audio you can bring in video spacer line map and the list goes on and what you can do with these elements all depend on whether you are using the free version of Brizzy or the pro version again I've mentioned before with the free version you can build out a full website with the pro version you will have a few more options under the add elements is the one I'm interested in now reorder blocks click on that and you will see their blocks over here and then they generate these little images we refer to them as thumbnails and now we can see they correspond with the blocks on the page this one this one right ok so you can see that we've created a page layout on this side with the individual blocks this one I want to at the top and as I hover with the cursor over them you will see that it changes into that little icon with the four arrows and that gives you the idea that you can drag them click and hold and drag this one thing you drag it all the way to the top and drop it and after you've done that your own block will move to the top let's say for example that you think this one you don't want to use this one anymore then you can go up here to the block settings you can delete it here or you can go to the reorder blocks and next to the block you will see there's that little X to delete it and you can delete it from there which I have just done right so so far you've seen how we brought in blocks and you've seen how we've created our own block and how you can change content how you bring in elements and how you reorder them a massive nice feature within Brizzy is the ability to style for example all of these that we had brought and comes in with the set and font so if I click here the typography you will see it's said to overpass if I go here topography overpass let's choose other text here this one again overpass and let's go to this one here now why is it safe to overpass it is said to overpass because it is said to paragraph hmmm what does that mean it means that when you assign any of these takes elements this one called paragraph it will assign overpass as the default font it's a preset style and if you want to change the font what we had done up here we had done it one by one by one but one if we could change all of that in one go at the same time and yes you can so remember if I look at these guys they are here on paragraph all of them okay that brings us to the sidebar to this third icon called styling click on it and feature here on these blocks where the presets are and the first one is called paragraph if I click on it you will see here I have the similar box that appears to the textbox that we had seen with our fonts here on the left now if I want to change them to comforta I just scroll down and I look here for comfort on and observe what happens to the text if I click on comforter and in a jiffy it was too quick for me they changed so everything that is say – paragraph changed now to comforter let's use something even a little bit more extravagant like caution couch couch on script if I click on this you will see they all switch to caution script everywhere a paragraph or a text element had been set to what was this paragraph it will switch now to caution script we don't like that though so let's put it back on comforter but what you would have noticed is that this title here didn't change if I click on this one and I go look at its styling preset you will see this one is set to a one called a buff title so you just do the same you go here look for a buff title and there it is third from the top and you also put it on comforter what is great here if you didn't have this feature here you would have to go to each of these takes boxes individually and set them manually to comforter but now you don't have to do that it's as simple as just a few changes these two have not changed so let's have a look at how what they are we click on that one this is heading 1 okay so we go up here we look for heading 1 there and we also put it on comforter and it changes at this one t subtitle so to our styling look for subtitle here and then put it on comforter and this way you go easily through it and you quickly make changes to it but wait there's more we've changed the typography now but did you know you can also change the default colors yep go do styling again and here you will see these colors that you had also seen that we when we had changed the background of this block remember we had gone to the block settings we went here to colors and then we had put this gradient and I chose this one here and this one there okay so remember that's where I got those colors from now what we can do is we can change those colors and they will change all over your site that's also done under styling and here you see them there is that color and there is this color but before I change anything here you have styles preset styles that you can choose from up here so magazine if I choose that you see it changes here and it also changes the color here but more than that more than that it also changes the fonts so if I go to paragraph now which I currently put on comforta it's now on Red Hat ticks so remember that this current style appear changes not only the colors but also your fonts let's choose another one graceful mmm nice I like how it changes good color schemes ashen ashen oblivion there's oblivion very very different and you can go through these and maybe there are ones that you like like this one is exquisite I think exquisite is pretty nice but on the other hand you have full custom control so if you want to change this color for example here say me I don't like it you can come in here and you can make changes to the color let's say I want to put it on this green here and then everywhere this color was used on your site it will be replaced by this green let's look at this pink for example I'd say this is where the current Pinkus and I want to put it also on a green I'll bring it here and then you see how it changes to green in real time and this is across your entire page not only a page your entire site you can easily make these global changes great you've got a good idea of what's going on here right then this is how you build out you've brought in your own pre-made blocks you've build out an unblocked and you've done a good job so far let's just save our work remember here at the bottom update its previewed one more time to see how it looks preview right and just wait for it to load there we go let's look at a few more features of the Brizzy builder before we wrap it up for this webinar important when working with websites is that you have to design it for your how it will display on your desktop and desktop is that computer like a laptop or a PC or a tower that you use in your house with a monitor that's what we mean when we refer to desktop but nowadays people use tablets and people use cell phone devices right we all know that but how this page will display on those devices are very different so just for example if I if I look at this page here I have the option to view this page as if somebody's viewing it on a tablet and to do that go here click on mobile view on the sidebar on the left and you will see the three options here tablet click on tablet and now you see it changes a little bit first of all what happens is that the page area has size to that of a tablet and things look a little bit different and now when I click here on this title up here you will see I again have a toolbar with fewer settings but what I can do here is I can make changes only to the tablet same thing if I go to mobile you see now it's very different now my columns are stacked on top of each other instead of being next to each other and this is all done for it to look good on a mobile device because mobile devices are just very very different let's look again at for example this one this is a very good example here you see this icon with the ticks hitting and this they are stacked on top of each other but on tablet they are in these columns and on desktop they are bigger now let's go to mobile and scroll to the top this is the block that I have created and I'm pretty sure you don't want anybody to come to your site and it looks like this right and this is where this extra responsive controls coming if I click here on this and I go to the T for typography what I can do here now is to reduce the ticks until it looks better like there I can also reduce the letter spacing let's bring in letter spacing and then the white bold is good let's bring make it a little bit bigger again I'm going to reduce the letter spacing and I'm making these changes but what is cool is that these changes do not reflect on tablet nor on desktop they are responsive they only apply to what you see here on the mobile device if I go to tablet you will see my tablet two lines as well so what I do I click there I reduce it let's first do the letter spacing yeah oops go back click on it and in fact I can even change the alignment here let's put everything to the left click on this one put it to the left take my button put it to the left did it change the same for the desktop let's have a look on series no desktop is still Center aligned this is what we mean by responsive design in Brizzy you have the control of a desktop and then tablet like this and then mobile devices and you can make these changes to ensure that it looks good for each of these devices and that's very very important because a lot of people when they think of a website they think of how it looks on a monitor and they forget that actually nowadays a lot of people 50% plus actually access websites on mobile devices so even though you can create a very good-looking website in this display for your desktop and this is most probably where you will be creating your website you need to actually spend a lot of time to go and make sure that it looks good on the tablet let's just put it back on the middle in the middle because currently I think it doesn't look that good on the left just align all I've do align them make sure it looks good here and then you have to go and check on your mobile device make sure it looks good there there is so much more that then meets the eye here make sure you go and check the tutorials on our YouTube channel in fact I recently did a full full tutorial on a photography portfolio one-pager site and what I recommend is if you are new in this case go and check those full tutorials and just copy everything that is done in there that will really help you to get under and get with this and get it under the belt and understand how this product works good so this is our bridge builder let's quickly have a quick run-through where we started we started with a page and what I'm going to do is break break my heart now I'm not gonna do that what I'm going to do is let's go to the bottom we started with a new block then we brought in these pre-made blocks from the categories we can choose between kid 1 and kid 2 and then after we had done that we had created our own one over here and we did that and you can even click here you see the plus here between these two blocks we brought in a blank block and we build that out with the elements over here and then we had reordered we brought that block this one all the way to the top and we changed the styling and we put it here on a preset style called exquisite let's see Samurai I want to bring in a su Samurai I like summer right – it's your decision right what you're up to let's say chubby chubby is probably mmm chubby is not so chubby chubby also looks good to me okay and that's what we did and then we also looked at how you're going to make different styling choices to the different devices from desktop to tablet to mobile a few other things before we call this a night and a game is that when you bring in a block and you go to the block manager you will see up here there are four tabs in total this one here is a pro feature so if you are working with Brizzy cloud-free and Brizzy wordpress free you click on it you're going to see what I'm going to see but you won't be able to use them because they are all locked now these are full pages fully fledged designed pre-made templates for you to use for different websites for example in their preset to different topics and the topics again here under the categories on the left let's say portfolio if you're looking for a portfolio to display things you click here on portfolio and you're going to get these options that you can bring in and let's say real estate you're interested in that then you can choose from the real estate sites here and the one that I always levitate towards because it's just so good to look at is this one food so there are apparently food ok there they are the four food sites you have this one and they have names like this one here if you hover over it is called flavor this one is gourmet this one is lavish this one is Molino let's say we click on Malina and you will see it says it's got six layouts if you click on here you will see that there are six fully designed pages and the Molino that you can use if I go here to the display on the left currently it's the home page that is selected and from here I can cycle through this entire page and see how it looks if I want to go up I just take my cursor up I want to go down oh I just take the cursor down and then to see how the others look you just click on them and it will cycle through that I've created a home page here so let's say I'm creating a bakery and I want to use the home page for Molino and then I will just do those content changes like change the images and change the tick's all you need to do is click you're on the home page and then you're in the bottom replace global styling this is important to understand because you will see that the colors in here and the font they are different to the styling I had said if I want to use this styling I'm going to select this one here if I want to use the styling from the Brizzy builder I had setup I just leave it unchecked but I'm going to use this one so I'll click check here and then I click import this layout and what it's going to do is it's going to import that entire page and it's going to bring in molinos styling so if I scroll up there are a few things that's going to happen this is the page that I had created and now you see it's got different styling because if I go to styling you will see it's now set to Malina with the molinos styling as I scroll down though and I come here you will see here is the Malina page that I've created so it's attached now to the bottom of the page I created which is of course not ideal so what I'll do is I'll just go here to reorder blocks and then these guys I'm going to delete them so get rid of that one get rid of that one and take them away away until I have the new ones that I've brought in through this layout look at that pretty right I've brought in this entire site last two things I want to show you is again done within the block manager but from here you can create this block here like this beautiful hero block that we've created here with this image in the background and then you have tags and you have a button and what you can do is you can use it again in the future and to do that you save this block if I go up here to the block there's the little heart which is close to my heart you like it that's what it means you love it so much you want to save it and then you click on it and it will think and then it will say saved now if I go to the bottom and I click here on add a new block up here now we go to this one save blocks click on it and you will see it will generate the thumbnail and this block appears over here click on it and now it will bring it at the bottom right so that's how you can save a block and then you can reuse it and then you have another option which is called a global block and I'm just quickly going to show you a global block let's go to this one and let's say you want to use this block on each and every page on your website again and again and again again then you make it a global block and the difference between a global block let me first show you a way to do it go to the block settings over here on the left and then where it says make it global it will activate it and then that little blue dot will appear there with a globe inside telling you that this is now a global block so we go to the bottom click on a new block and now go to global blocks and there it is now global block block a global book at its heart is a saved block but it has global features so let me bring this one in ok so now we have this one from the top and this one and then we have the same here let's make a change here what I'm going to do is I'm going to change the font this is the one at the top to Laura let's bring in overlay here to the block settings so I'm going to click on overlay like this and this is let's change this one's color I go here okay and I'm going to just make that a little bit more good so you seen the changes I've made to this block at the top if I go to the one that I brought in here at the bottom it is still the same because it's just a copy it copied it and it pasted it these two are not connected to each other at all that is safe blocks but this one I made a global block remember that little thing there if you look at the one I brought in at the bottom you're going to see it also has that little blue dot this means these two are linked why does that mean let's go to the original one let's do some other stuff here I'm going to make some changes here let's make it wacky all right very very wacky change the text color here Oh yucky yeah let's rather do something like but we still want to make it extreme so that you can understand that's it that's extreme enough right now if we go to the bottom of this one which is linked it's a global block uh-huh you can see same applied and that's how you can work with all the blocks from the block manager great and this is how you work within the builder strictly speaking within the Brizzy builder there is nothing more to show what I've shown you all the options that you have within the bridge builder they appear over here what you will need to do now is that you will have to go to youtube and you will have to go and check how to work with these various elements in particularly the column and the row and you learn more about features like the more settings settings with Heights and then like padding and margins these are those fine-tune things that you will need when you want to go in especially create your own blocks if you are using the pre-made blocks these are already set so you have to change very little but it's important that you do know how to use them so go check out the YouTube channel for the tutorials and and get used to this but I would recommend if it's your first time sign up for Brizzy go for the free version bring in those pre-made blocks change the content like I had shown you and then just see how it goes and from there I think the first decision you have to make is whether you like it whether this is for you and then if it is then start building more and then later on if you are comfortable with it go for the pro versions because you get so so much more with the pro version so you're gonna get a far far away with the free versions but I can guarantee you one day you're going to say man I wish I can do this one of those features that you are going to wish you can do is the pop-ups and I'm going to end with this this is a pro feature if I click you're on this button and there's a little link I can click on the link and then you will see there's a feature called a pop-up and this is something that's only available in the pro versions so if I click here now I can create what is called a pop-up so if somebody comes to my site and they click on that button a pop-up is going to appear so maybe give them a discount or ask them to fill in a form let's choose this one with a map like get in touch we can change that to our shop let me do that I double click there and then our I'd say our shop let's say contact us contact us right now where is that pop-up you have to view it on the front end so I'm going to save my work here in the bottom right hand corner then click on preview and then here which is the front end we refer to at the front end where visitors will come and see your page now when they click on this button that pop-up is going to appear very very cool right Nigel yes indeed and then they can fill in the form here they even have a map here some icons they can click very very cool and then after they've done with the pop-up they just click here and and that's one of the reasons you will probably consider going pro just one of many reasons go and check out at Brizzy on Brizzy dot IO and Brizzy cloud for the differences between the free and the pro and before I say a dear for this video just remember I mentioned to you the videos we are rolling out on YouTube there are new features coming in regularly updates happening all the time brizzy's actually still a very very young platform and page builder so there's a lot that is being done and as these new features roll out we try to catch up with them with the videos on YouTube so for the latest and best advice first go check out make sure you search and then we also have the Facebook community where you can go and check it out and then hopefully through these webinars we can also entice you to try out what is going on in the world of Brizzy game so let me just have a look here in the chatroom okay I'm going to have a look quickly here at a few of the questions and see yes Matt absolutely this is recorded and you're going to see how much I had messed up at the beginning how much it didn't work we will work that out how to make a relation between Brizzy cloud and our own domain our are not this actually are you talking about a custom domain you have to go check it on YouTube there is a video for that okay right I I think this is great you guys have been helping there in the chat room I'm going to promote you guys immediately to lieutenants in the chatroom not sure we are going to get those badges from but from now on you lieutenants right so actually I think my tastes he was the one who called it first at the beginning he was going to say it is a collaboration collaboration is 100% the correct word for it and this is what's going to be implemented in Brizzy clout Brizzy cloud yes if it's going to go into Brizzy WordPress not entirely sure about that because there are actually platforms that can do that in Brizzy WordPress but this is designed for Brizzy cloud I had to beg Dimitri get me something to show the guys tonight in the webinar what we are working on in a few weeks ago he had teased us with stories and that was it and since then I've been on his case give me stories give me stories give me stories and he said okay there's a few things here and there that the guys have to just tighten up I have to be patient and then today he surprised me with this collaboration platform so when you are in Brizzy cloud what's going to happen is that when you're working with clients you're going to give them the option to leave comments for you on your site and these are typical for example if you had styled something and the client doesn't like it what the client will do is they will go into the dashboard and they will click on comments and you will see here on the left that the sidebar looks different right this is where you will know you are now in the collaboration mode so collaboration is having a discussion back and forth over what looks good on my site and what would I like to change awesome awesome I use that word awesome again gorgeous gorgeous and what happens is as I hover here with my cursor into the different areas you will see there's a little plus click to add a comment that's how simple it is I don't need to have any complicated things for example this download button I don't like that icon there or I want to remove the icon and let's pretend for a moment that I am the client so I come here and I click on it and it says visible to everyone or visible to the team that you have assigned here and then write a comment please remove the icon please remove the icon and that's it and then I click you're on comment and you will see this is number 28 ok so there are many john curran that's me Curren if I could choose I want to be John Connor from Terminator please do me next time remember so of course now if Demi comes to the side then he sees that john curran had posted this comment he will post something back here and if he thinks if he's removed the comment you will click here on resolve and once it has been resolved it gets that little checkmark okay ticking and you don't have to worry about this this will not appear on the front end this is only going to appear in collaboration mode so once you click up here on the edit and this is not a live version so if I click on the edit it will take you back into the live page that that is how this will work up here if you want to have a bird's-eye view of all the comments on this page you will go up here to where you have this and it's just going to load it because you actually have and this is impressive guys I'm going to show to you you have desktop tablet and mobile you can add comments respectively to those different devices so it's not only going to be desktop you can choose between the tablet and mobile and if I click here on mobile it's just going to refresh the collaboration mode into mobile and you will see that I have posted three comments here if I scroll down there's one it's been resolved there's one that's been resolved and there's one that has been resolved this is absolutely cool right the fact that you can have it on these three different devices pele I see you say genius I wish you were saying I'm the genius but I know right so this is very very different it's very client orientated so if you don't work with clients you've probably got the same man who needs it but for those of you that can see how this is growing into an ideal client platform and how the team is listening to the feedback that they are getting and trying to incorporate these features you should and then you're at the bottom I just notice it says your hide resolved whoa turn it on and off so you can also do that great and if you want to go back to only the ones on the desktop there you go yes dianna thank you very much hope you guys have a good evening I'm going to work on that technically should figure it out by the next time but on the other hand if the Internet can hold then the live performance is much better than a pre-recorded performance and I'll make sure that our good friend Demetri joins me then for the next one so we have somebody is now anthony fauci i'd saw that call very good for Saturday Night Live .
