Example use case: Adding a subscription post to the bottom of a blog post

A common place to add an optin email form is right below the content of your post.
For this quick example, I'll show you how easy it is to insert and style an Optin email module under a blog post using Visual Builder.

visual builder divi example.jpg

Using Visual Builder, add the standard section with a 1/2 column (2 column) row under the section containing the post content.

Since this example is going to be an e-book offer with the optin, add an image module to the left column and upload an image of the book. Set the image alignment to "Center" and set the maximum image width to 300px.
