When the people at Elementor claim that they are the number 1 drag and drop website builder for wordpress, it really isn’t an empty boast. In this post, you’re going to find out why we at Brandplus Solutions use Elementor for at least 90% of our clients!
If you have previously never been into designing a website, the prospect of embarking on that journey may seem a bit daunting. What are widgets? What’s a theme? How do I …? So many questions with equally as many answers. If you really want to learn more about starting up, we recommend this article here.
But still, even when you have the hang of things, on many occasions, the website you are creating ends up looking weird or downright ugly (we’re not judging; that’s what we’ve been through). And that’s where Elementor comes in.
Elementor is a drag and drop website design plugin. There is a free version of it, and it allows you to do almost everything, and there is the premium version which adds a whole new dimension of beautiful things you can do. If you are a Brandplus Solutions client, you get the premium version installed on your website for free.
With Elementor, all you have to do is imagine what you want your website to look like, and then find the blocks you need in the toolbar to create that. All you need to do is create sections, and then drop widgets (or blocks) in them. There is a wide variety of blocks, from texts, to headers, to images, to videos, to shortcodes, to html code. And these are in the free version. Once you move to the premium version, you get a lot more power in the form of beautiful pre-designed templates which you can reshape in any way you like. You can also technically create your own theme any way you like without having to look for themes and then struggle with fitting your vision according to them.
Of course, Elementor cannot be expected to do everything for you; however, it integrates almost seamlessly with a huge variety of other plugins, so it’s easy for you to experiment and get more. In addition to that, You can always check their Youtube Channel to see how things can be done in their excellent tutorials.
