What is Elementor?

 

Elementor is a WordPress page builder Plugin. There are many different WordPress page builders out there but Elementor is different. This is the first and currently only front-end page builder. If you have ever done any edits on your WordPress site then you know how frustrating a process that can be. This builder enables live edits without the hassle of switching back and forth between editing and previewing, including the header and footer.

Elementor and Elementor Pro have made making edits and adding widgets to your website a much faster, easier, and more streamlined process. It really is a game-changer in my opinion. The quality and multitude of designs that you can create are amazing and there is no need for you to get into the code or the CSS. The Elementor interface is extremely user friendly and learning the ropes of how to use it all literally only takes minutes. With Elementor you can now fully customize every aspect of your design and the process is literally drag, drop, done. All of the editing happens in real-time so you can see right away if you like it or if you want to change anything. It is completely mobile responsive, and you are able to see live what a page will look like on a desktop, tablet, and mobile phone with simply the click of the mouse.

Man Working on a Responsive Web Design

Saving your work is simple and you don’t have to worry about doing a bunch of work and then it accidentally disappears. Elementor also offers a revision history that is created every time you update a page,  so going back in time is a breeze.  There is also a draft mode, so you can make a new page or even just a few edits there while not disturbing your live site. You can save and reuse widgets that you have created to use them again or even on other pages. This helps to keep the flow of continuity throughout your website without having to redo all the work.  They have also added Hotkeys and keyboard shortcuts to make life even easier…like one-click easy.  You can also copy and paste elements and even between pages. Basically, Elementor has taken the phrase work smarter not harder, and turned it into a web builder.

The company has been around since 2016 and we have been partnering with Elementor for about a year now and they are great to work with.  They are using some of the latest technologies and they are constantly updating to make it better and better every day, and they are super responsive in the support department.

Are you in the market for a new website or maybe updating a current website?  If a custom website is not in your budget than an Elementor template may be just what your company needs. You can get a new website that has the look and feel of a custom job and at a fraction of the price. The best part is that if you like being hands-on with your website then this will make your life so much easier.
