Site Title/Logo

Changing your site title is easy. From the dashboard, go to Appearance > Customize. Then you will see this:
Customize

You will notice that the preview changes so you can see what your title looks like. Use lower case when typing your title so that Google results will look better. On your site, the title will come out all caps automatically.

If you prefer to use a logo instead of text, just move down a little on the Customize menu to where it says “Header Image”

We will be going back to the Customize area. To get there, go to Appearance > Customize in the left menu. From there, click on the Widgets link again. This will all be managed through the Home Featured 2 Widgets area.

You can use this color picker to help you with the hex codes: http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_colorpicker.asp I recommend you write down the hex codes of your favorite colors so that you won’t have to try to find them again.

Again, be sure to click the blue save button at the top to save your changes.

Testimonials

This area works exactly the same way as the section above, just use Home Featured 3 text widget.

Social Media Area

We will be going back to the Customize area. To get there, go to Appearance > Customize in the left menu. From there, click on the Widgets link again. For the social area, we will be using Home Featured 4. So if you click on Home Featured 4, you will see “Simple Social Icons”, which sets up the Facebook Twitter, etc icons. When you click the tiny arrow next to the Simple Social Icons widget, it will open up and give you lots of options.

Footer

footer1This area works exactly the same way as the Text Boxes section above, just use the Footer 1 & 2 widgets. Simply replace the title and text with your own text. The only thing that is different is the image. You will see this info for the picture on the sample site:

Simply remove all that to remove the image, or replace the URL (in between the parentheses) to add your own. So remove this:
https://excellermarketing.com/starter-one/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/kathy-headshot-cropped.jpg
You can find your own image URL in the Media library. Simply go to Media > Add New on the left menu.

Genesis > SEO Settings
Most options will be obvious what to fill out and the optimal settings have already been selected for you. Really, all you need to fill out is the second section called “Homepage Settings”
