Are you planning to design a new website for your business? Have you given Elementor a shot? If you have not or in the fence, this article breaks down 9 reasons why you should start using it! Best part of all, you need little/no coding knowledge to get started.

In the modern-day digital world that we live in, one of the first places your customers will look for more information is online. With websites being one of the most popular medium to showcase your business, luckily, you can now do it easily with a page-builder. These are plugins that integrate with a web development platform (such as WordPress) which allow users to drag and drop blocks to build/design a page. Though there are many page-builders currently in the market, this article will focus on why you should use Elementor to design your website.

1. Powered by WordPress

WordPress accounts for almost 32% of websites built worldwide. It is by far the most popular platforms to build websites on. Elementor complementing perfectly with WordPress and users can benefit from using this powerful platform too. It’s a great tool for beginners as it would make the website SEO-friendly, comparatively secure and an extremely intuitive interface to manage content without having to handle lines of code.

2. Easy-to-use Theme Builder

Most page builders are theme-dependent. Certain parts of the website such as blog archive, single posts, headers & footers are designed through the theme which are not accessible through a page-builder. However, with the Pro version of Elementor, you can design a template for every area of your site.

3. Engaging Eco-system

In addition to Elementor’s powerful functionalities, it is equally important to consider its ecosystem too. With over 1M+ downloads on WordPress, you will be a part of growing and active community. These include designers and developers who continuously contribute to the community. These include add-on plugins, pre-made templates, third-party widget compatibilities etc. There are a ton of resources/tutorials that are freely available in case you need help to get started.

4. Extensive Template Library

Despite Elementor providing a powerful page builder to design a website, they have taken a step further in providing ready-to-use templates that can be easily imported to your website. Thankfully, you will not have to start designing from scratch as these templates will help give you a head start.

5. Shorter learning curve

For a non-coder like myself, Elementor was one of the easiest tools that I used to get started with designing my own website. It’s simple drag-and-drop feature and super intuitive workflow, you can learn and design your website much faster. Though you might need basic HTML and CSS knowledge, it really is not going to take much of your time to get started with Elementor.

6. Real-time preview

Elementor is equipped with an WYSIWYG* editor; i.e. you can preview the changes made to your website real-time. With just a click of a button, you can easily understand what your page will look like and will eliminate the need to navigating through multiple screens.

7. Lightweight

As mentioned above, Elementor can be used independently of any theme. You can therefore build on an extremely lightweight theme (WPAstra, Page Builder Framework etc.) and still achieve the functionalities provided by Elementor. This not only takes up less space on your servers but also loads pages much faster leading higher conversion rates from your visitors.

8. Mobile previews and design controls

Mobile browsing is becoming increasingly popular and making your website responsive to multiple devices and browsers is now a must! Luckily, if you use Elementor, all designs created will be automatically responsive. In addition, with its mobile preview feature, Elementor makes designing a mobile-responsive website very convenient. You can see how the website looks on a different device without having to leave the editor.

9. No lock-in

Unlike Divi, if you were to decide to move away from Elementor, you will be left behind with some clean code. Apart from the styling and formatting offered by Elementor, the basic skeleton of the website will remain intact. But really, I don’t see a reason why you’d want to ditch using Elementor!
