Wether you’re just trying to update a couple of images, replace some text, or completely design an entire website from scratch, we all know just how difficult this process can be. Elementor is not just a page builder, it has completely reshaped how you interact with wordpress as a whole.
Editing or putting together a website using wordpress used to mean either sifting through pages and pages and pages… and yes more pages of themes and or plugins just to find the right look and feel for your site OR paying an arm and a leg for a custom design and development.
Elementor is putting all of this to an END. They have created a solution that is not just stupid easy to use, but also has very little learning curve. And, it’s FREE.
The software is based around a suite of extensive widgets that can be placed anywhere on any page or post. The free version of elementor comes with everything you would need to get started on a very simple website or just to use here and there on a couple of pages or posts.
Elementor Pro is the most complete and robust page builder in the world. I can say that with the upmost confidence after years, yes years, of using elementor on client’s websites and my own personal web projects. It integrates with other popular wordpress plugins like: MailChimp, ActiveCampaign, Yoast, WooCommerce, ACF, PODS, Slack and Facebook just to name a few. A comprehensive list can be found here.
I have even been able to create custom community sites and websites with memberships that utilize user profiles using just Elementor and Paid Memberships Pro. The possibilites are literally endless.
But enough talk lets go through some real examples.
Elementor actually has a TON of awesome free resources available on their website that will help you get started and learn how to build the perfect site for your specific use case. They even provide pre-built templates that look incredible right out of the box. You can see all templates that are available by going to library.elementor.com.
You can head over to their getting started page and watch some of their tutorials. And also they have this awesome resource called “How To Create” that literally walks you through creating a website for specific niches and use cases.
Elementor can be found on the WordPress repo by simply navigating to your plugins page and clicking “Add New” or can be downloaded here, and uploaded manually to your website.
