What is Elementor?
Elementor is a WordPress Page Builder plugin. That means its entire job is to help you design beautiful pages with as little coding as possible.
It does this through an intuitive drag, drop and duplicate interface where you can see exactly how your content will look for the visitor… while you are building it!?
Page builders like Elementor have allowed non-coders to become incredibly successful web designers, and choosing a page builder for your website is a huge decision (because you’ll use it just about every day!).
What is Elementor Pro?
This makes it perfect for beginners to dip their toes in the waters before committing to making the small investment to go pro.
While the free version will allow you to build nice looking landing pages by itself, the true power of Elementor is reserved for its pro version.
At the time of this writing, the pro version is $49 per year for a single site, up to $199 per year for unlimited sites (Discounts also apply, read on!).
Elementor Free vs Pro Features
Elementor is an extremely full-featured page builder, so you may wonder if it is even necessary to upgrade to the pro version.
Here are some of the must-have features of the Pro version that I think justify the upgrade fee:
- Elementor Theme Builder (Header and Footer)
- Elementor Pop Ups
- Form Integrations (to collect leads and do other actions)
- Pro Templates to speed up the design process
- Blog Post Grid (if you are a blogger)
- WooCommerce Builder
- Dynamic Content
The features above are really a must-have if you want to have full design freedom and increased functionality in your websites. We will cover these features more throughout this post.
Elementor Page Builder Widgets
Elementor includes dozens of widgets to help you efficiently build your pages:
Integrations should be a big consideration for anyone considering a new page builder. In this section of the review I want to talk briefly about Elementor’s openness to 3rd party plugins, as well as their built in integrations with Email providers.
