No, but you may be missing out.
Genesis Club Pro is a premium plugin for Genesis that we developed to take care of repetitive tasks required every time we created a new site.
It has since grown into an amazing, must-have plugin for Genesis. It just happens to help with some aspects of creating landing pages. It’s just one of the many things Genesis Club Pro does.
For example, Genesis Club Pro brings a host of improvements to your Genesis site, and some SEO extras that you won’t find anywhere else.
We also update the plugin frequently.
If you decide to start using Genesis Club Pro you are not just getting a plugin to help with some landing page elements, but one that does many things to help with Genesis in general. However it is not compulsory and it’s your choice.
