In the dynamic world of web design, Elementor has emerged as a powerful and popular tool for creating stunning websites. Agencies like Snaptech are starting to see more and more interest from web dev clients seeking skilled Elementor Developers. So, why the interest in using Elementor to build new websites? What makes the Elementor Developer platform so great in building unique and engaging websites?
Released in 2016, Elementor uses drag-and-drop interactivity on the WordPress platform, reducing the need for needing coding skills and simplifying the development process for website building. Three years after the first Elementor website was built there had been over 2 million of these websites created.
There are two versions of the software: the free Elementor version and Elementor Pro, of which there is an annual charge for using. Price plans for Elementor Pro range from $9.99/month to $19.99/month, plus you can get discounts if you buy multiple licenses in bulk.
Regardless of which version you go after, Elementor websites allow for stunning visual design. By reducing the need to know deep language code, the plugin allows the website developer to focus on front-end design and user experience.
One of the key advantages of building a website using Elementor is their ability to create custom designs using Elementor’s extensive library of widgets, templates, and blocks. An Elementor Developer tends to have a keen eye for aesthetics, understanding the importance of color schemes, typography, spacing, and visual hierarchy in creating a visually pleasing website. The developer can create unique and engaging user experiences by seamlessly integrating various design elements using Elementor’s drag-and-drop functionality.
In addition to designing visually appealing websites, Elementor Developers are also proficient in optimizing website performance. An Elementor built website has a next generation approach to website speed, user experience performance, and search engine ranking strategy. The site developer can use various optimization techniques built in to Elementor, such as image compression, caching, and minification, to ensure that their websites load quickly and perform efficiently.
Additionally, Elementor Developers are well-versed in creating responsive websites that adapt seamlessly to different devices and screen sizes. With Elementor’s responsive editing features, developers can design websites that look great on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices alike, and they can do it simultaneously in the design phase. Elementor websites are built from the ground up to be responsive and accessible, providing an optimal user experience regardless of the device used to access them.
Absolutely. Another key advantage that the Elementor platform allows is customization. The developer can build on the template to add custom functionality and styling to their Elementor-built websites.
Beyond its out-of-the-box features, the Elementor platform hosts a wide array of custom templates, widgets, and extensions, with more being added all the time. If the designer comes from a developer background, their prior coding experience can be an advantage if they want to build customized templates or add-ons to the site.
Elementor allows for easy building of landing pages, thereby eliminating the need for third-party landing page software. The simple drag-and-drop interface gives non-technical business owners and marketing managers the tool to make the landing pages they have in mind with compelling call-to-actions, lead capture forms, and other elements without the need for additional coding experience required.
Since the foundation for Elementor was built using clean and optimized code, these sort of websites also prove to be very search engine friendly. Adding meta tags, alt text for images, and custom URLs are also dead simple in the Elementor admin panel. Since organic traffic is a vital goal for any website, any advantage that the site’s platform gives is always welcome.
Building a website using Elementor saves time, which is passed on to the customer. It allows the developer to do more projects, increasing their revenue potential and client roster. Using Elementor the price of a typical website can be reduced between 25% to 40%, a substantial savings for any business-minded professional looking to reduce their digital costs.
Elementor also allows for plug-ins to many popular digital marketing tools like Mailchimp, Hubspot, WooCommerce, Polylang and many others.
