Choosing Elementor Pro for Your Company’s WordPress Website

Why Elementor Pro is Our Page Builder Plugin of Choice

By January 20, 2023No Comments

Elementor Pro is a powerful and versatile WordPress page builder plugin that offers a wide range of features and functionality for building custom WordPress pages and posts. It is widely considered to be one of the best page builder plugins available for WordPress among web designers and creative agencies alike. Our company has been working with Elementor Pro for several years and based on our experience and our clients’ feedback, it’s the clear-cut choice for WordPress page-builder plugins.  Let’s explore some of the key features and benefits of the plugin, with a specific emphasis on its extensive collection of powerful, intuitive widgets, and compare it to other popular WordPress page builder plugins such as Divi Builder and Beaver Builder.

Live Drag & Drop Editor

One of the main advantages of Elementor Pro is its intuitive and user-friendly interface. The drag-and-drop editor makes it easy for anyone, even those without any coding experience, to create stunning and professional-looking pages on their website. The editor also includes a wide range of pre-designed templates and widgets, which can be easily customized to suit your specific needs. Elementor’s widgets are the building blocks of the plugin and there are a wide variety available to choose from depending on how you intend to build your site’s layout. From basic text and image widgets to more advanced options like pricing tables, contact forms, and even a built-in form builder, Elementor’s widgets are designed to make building pages and posts as easy as possible while also providing modern, clean and sleek styling options.

Dynamic Content Features

One of the most notable features of Elementor Pro is how it works with dynamic content. Elementor  allows you to create dynamic pages and posts that are automatically updated based on your conditions. For instance, you can create conditional forms based on the user’s selections, or populate content easily for a unique post-type. Creating custom post types, custom taxonomies and custom fields in WordPress used to be work for a web developer. With powerful tools like Elementor a non-coder can implement and build custom WordPress websites. The dynamic content features also allow you to create custom templates and widgets that can be reused on multiple pages, saving you time and effort.

Tons of Powerful Widgets & 3rd Party Add-Ons

Another big advantage that we love about Elementor Pro is its vast library of templates, widgets and 3rd party addons. Elementor Pro includes a wide range of pre-designed templates and widgets, which can be easily customized to suit your specific needs and are themed for different popular industries and notable design styles, keeping your website’s look and feel modern and up-to-date. There are pre-designed templates and widgets for headers, footers, forms, pricing tables, and more. Having all of these pre-styled options makes it easy to create professional-looking pages and posts without having to start from scratch, even if you are just using their layouts for inspiration or as a starting point for your custom design. The variety of pre-designed templates and widgets available in Elementor Pro is truly impressive and makes it easy to create pages that look great and function well.

Elementor also offers a number of advanced features that make it a great choice for experienced users. For example, it includes built-in support for WooCommerce, allowing you to easily add ecommerce functionality to your website which as most web designers will tell you, can be a daunting task. It also includes a great form builder, which makes it easy to create custom forms for your website without the need for any coding on the back-end. And, for those who are comfortable with CSS and JavaScript, Elementor Pro also offers the ability to add custom CSS and JavaScript to your pages and posts, giving you even more control over the look and feel of your website.

Comparing Elementor to the Competition

In terms of comparison to other WordPress page builder plugins, Elementor Pro stands out for its wide range of features, flexibility, and scalability. It is also more affordable than some of the other options on the market, making it a great choice for both personal and business websites.

Beaver Builder is another popular WordPress page builder plugin that is often compared to Elementor Pro. It offers a similar drag-and-drop interface and a wide range of pre-designed templates and widgets. However, it lacks some of the advanced features and flexibility of Elementor Pro, such as dynamic content and custom CSS and JavaScript. Additionally, Beaver Builder’s widgets and templates are not as extensive as Elementor Pro’s, which limits the design possibilities.

Divi Builder by Elegant Themes is another popular option that is often compared to Elementor Pro. It offers a similar drag-and-drop interface and a wide range of pre-designed templates and widgets. However, it lacks some of the advanced features of Elementor Pro, such as dynamic content and custom CSS and JavaScript. Additionally, Divi Builder is a bit more expensive than Elementor Pro, making it less affordable for some users.

Great Support, Online Knowledge Base & Growing Community

In addition to all its great features and tools, we also love the company’s great support team and its huge online knowledge base. The online Elementor Community is constantly growing and has thousands of users and web creators that help make it a clear-cut choice for design agencies such as ours. Great widgets, intuitive interface, scalability, excellent support and affordable pricing  help make Elementor our top choice for both beginners and experienced users. In our opinion it is the clear winner in the WordPress page builder space.
