After installing the theme you should have been prompted to install the recommended plugins. If you chose not to install the Visual Composer then now is the time to do so.
Visual Composer Settings
Go to Visual Composer > General Settings to setup the plugin. The most important part is to enable the composer for the post types you want to use it on.
