  2. I loved this Google Hangout and I have to say that although Sé focused on Genesis and it’s problems from a usability, I have to disagree. I think people buy Genesis because of it’s use of ease and the ability to build a nice looking website fast similar to the demos which they are looking when they purchase.

    The reality, is also that many people are on limited budgets these days, especially startups, entrepreneurs and people who just want to blog. This is why many have chosen the framework, because of it’s popularity, nice looking themes and user base. I know when I purchased Genesis for the first time, the decision was based on the help I could get via the forums and people already using it, and now it’s in abundance with blogs like WP Beginner and others which are helping people everyday.

    So if someone can buy something they like and not have to pay a ton of money to create something of great quality, why wouldn’t they? I think this is the benefit to Frameworks and for people who really want to create something fast and simple.
